San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Spring Lookbook

Local designer Candice Cuoco of CCUOCO is one of my favorite San Francisco fashion discoveries.

I wore a custom-made bustier for New Year’s Eve this year {New Year’s Eve Leather} and recently sat front & center at her first solo runway show here in SF {CCUOCO DIVERGE}.

When she asked me to style a lookbook for Spring showing the versatility and wearability of her couture leather pieces, I immediately started daydreaming and drifted off to mixing & matching heaven.

As excited as I was to put together some daytime and nighttime looks using pieces from her collection, the end result was even better than I had hoped.

I mean… How often do your expectations get completely blown out of the water?

This leather dress is a cropped version of an amazing floor-length gown from Candice’s Fall 2013 collection and I immediately fell in love with this fresh, modern take on a classic style.

So how do you wear a leather dress for daytime? With a bow blouse and my favorite vintage peep-toe booties, of course.

How would YOU style this leather dress for daytime?

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO DIVERGE Runway Show

My favorite thing about being a blogger here in San Francisco is being able to get to know amazing local brands, designers, and stores. And being able to share them with you!

I initially met designer Candice Cuoco last September during San Francisco Fashion Week, right before she was named San Francisco’s Best Emerging Designer of 2013. And 2014 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for this up & comer as she just showed her first collection at New York Fashion Week in February and will be rocking London Fashion Week in September.
