Americana: The Factory x Sasha Maks Vintage III

There are few things in this world that I love more than polka dots so I was immediately drawn to this fun little shorts + top combination from The Factory’s Americana collection. Sporty and modern but the pieces are still on the classic side.

What I love about these two polka dotted pieces is how versatile they are. You could easily pair the top with a white skater skirt or dark wash cropped jeans, while the sporty little shorts could easily be worn with a simple white tee or a tank and tailored blazer for a more nighttime-appropriate look.

For this shoot I wanted to put together a more Summery style so I added my favorite neutral heeled sandals and a great structured white tote that seems to go with everything.

My two favorite Summertime trends are sweet dresses, like Sasha wears here, and fun separates that you can get creative with. With this powder blue color being the predominate hue for our looks, I really liked that we kept the styling minimal with black & white accessories and gold jewelry.

Sasha’s carrying a structured black & white handbag & wearing Costume National booties that we found last year, while I’m carrying a Dooney & Bourke bag & wearing Sam Edelman sandals.

When you wear color do you like to keep you accessories more minimal?

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}

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:

Last week I was honored to attend the Sasha Maks Vintage Holiday Trunk Show at the oh-so-stylish Michael Page Style Lab. The night included a gorgeous, tres chic location, stylish men & women, and more amazing vintage jewelry than you could believe.

But since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves…
