June Sartorial Round-Up

June has come to an end so before heading into a fabulous and fashionable July, I wanted to take a moment to appreciate some of my favorite sartorial moments from June.

Faux Leather Jacket Black & White Stripes Red Quilted Bucket Bag San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Faux Leather Jacket – Finding the perfect cropped jacket that you can throw over everything from jeans to a maxi dress is a serious milestone for any fashion lover. I’d been haunting my favorite local vintage shop looking for a distressed version when I inadvertently stumbled on this faux leather jacket at Express.

Cape Blazer Outerwear Layering Black & White Stripes San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Cape Blazer – I’m a huge fan of capes. Throw one over any look and suddenly you’re channeling Grace Kelly. This Cape Blazer is an amazingly versatile piece, the structured silhouette really takes it up a notch. I fell head over heels when I saw it and wore it for at least a week straight.}

Moody Miss Havisham Dark Florals Kimono San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

{Moody Miss Havisham – My love affair with sheer floral kimonos continues! This shot makes me smile because I’m wearing layered jewelry from some of my favorite designers & boutiques.}

Boho Little Black Dress San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Bohemian Hat

{Boho Fashion: What I loved most about this look was the wide-brimmed fedora! I adore hats but rarely wear them – Mostly because my hair is always in a bun. So when I get a chance to wear one – I get pretty excited.}

Which of these June looks is YOUR favorite?

Voyage To Marrakech

A big Thank You to The Factory and The Evans Group for the unbelievable trip to Marrakech last week – Who knew that in the streets of SOMA you could escape to the market stalls of exotic Morocco?

Voyage To Marrakech is an evening inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s glamorous 1970’s lifestyle in Moroco to showcase their Spring 2013 Collection. An illuminated nighttime Marrakech marketplace, with cocktails, food, and music, and live photoshoot presentation, featuring live vignettes inspired by iconic YSL iconic photographs.

Stylish San Franciscans flocked to our own personal Marrakech last week to celebrate The Factory’s new collection inspired by the love affaire that YSL had with Marrakech.

{The looks that evening ran the gamut from ultra modern to vintage inspired to came-straight-from-the-office}

{Cocktails, mannequins sporting Yves Saint Laurent-inspired frocks, friends reuniting, fortune tellers…}

{And the models showed off a phenomenal Spring 2013 collection filled with sleek, shimmering fabrics, vintage patterns & prints, luxurious metallics, faux fur, relaxed silhouettes, and fun accessories}

{I wore a long-sleeved, high-neck vintage shift dress, Zara ankle strap heels, and a fabulous gold necklace from Sasha Maks Vintage}

{Check out more photographs from this event here – Just log into Facebook to view}

This was the fifth event that I’ve had the honor of attending at The Factory, check out my posts on the previous events below:
