    The Velvet Neighborhood Guide: Fillmore District, San Francisco


    Like the iconic 60’s model Twiggy gushed, “I’m just mad for San Francisco, it’s like London and Paris stacked on top of each other!” We feel the same. This is a city that’s tiny in size but seriously mighty when it comes to style and, most importantly, food. One of our fave spots is the Fillmore District—10 tree-lined blocks in the heart of the Golden City. It still has an independent, neighborhood spirit with lots of vintage and antique stores, but there’s the best in fashion, food and always people watching. Also, opening up in SF gives us ample opportunities to wear our delicious cashmere sweaters and puffy jackets. Here’s our list of area go-tos:




    Pizzaria Delphina — One of the most popular nosh spots in the hood and right across from our store (this is very good but also very bad). Come early or be prepared to wait. There is amazing piatti (small entrees) but the real draw is the pizza, thin crust and charred Neapolitan style. Our fave is the sublime, old school Margherita, and we’ve also been know to finish it off with a Butterscotch Budino.


    Fillmore Bakeshop — San Francisco is often called the Paris of the West and this tiny spot (just four tables) feels tres francais. Specializing in European sweets, everything is made from scratch and beyond delicious; grab an espresso and a macaron for a mid-shopping break and also pick up an assortment of pastries for later and tomorrow.




    Mureta's Antiques—This jewel-box of a store features some serious eye candy. Packed with antiques from Europe and Asia, the real draw here is their estate jewelry collection. Perfectly curated display cases showcase everything from Art Deco engagement rings to sweet cameo brooches.


    Forest Books—A classic, old-time bookstore with a totally unique mix of used and rare books, as well as the best in contemporary fiction (we’re particularly fond of their coffee table books selection). Take a time-out from the hustle and bustle to browse and buy.




    Jane—Don’t miss this coffee spot for breakfast, lunch or a snack. Pretty much everything from roasting coffee beans and blending teas to their baked goods are all done in-house (we have a soft spot for the chocolate brioche) and they do one of the best weekend brunch menus in town.


    The Fillmore—Anyone who’s big on the music scene has probably played this stage—from the Grateful Dead in the 60’s, to punk rock classics like Black Flag in the 80’s and nowadays everyone from Radiohead to comedian Dave Chapelle books this central, classic spot. Super fun night out guaranteed.




    Zuni Cafe—This is one of our fave lunch spots because their brick oven roasted chicken is so delicious we have it at least once a week (preferably sitting at an outside table when weather permits). With a seasonally changing menu, you can’t go wrong with anything. It’s all delicious.


    SPQR — This award-winning Italian eatery boasts a coveted Michelin star, so it’s no surprise you’ll need a reservation. We love sitting at the Chef’s Counter, where you can literally watch culinary magic happen (and then eat it), but the bar is also a fab spot to end your day with a glass of vino from their encyclopedic wine list. Cheers.

    Hello San Francisco!




    We found another gorgeous spot! The Fillmore District is centered on 10 tree-lined blocks in the heart of SF, and this urban nook has some of the best shopping and noshing the city has to offer.

    We’re pleased as punch to have opened our latest store here and we hope to see you soon.

    The Packing List: Roadtrip Essentials


    Sometimes you just need to get out town. Whether it’s with a bunch of your friends, a partner or just on your lonesome, roadtrip getaways are a great way to relax and recharge—whether it’s with a whole lot of nothing or up-at-dawn hiking. Of course, in order to hit the road with a modicum of style, you’ve got to pack like a pro. Short trips require clothes that are easy, cool and can pull double-duty. Here’s our list of essentials to guarantee a stress-free quickie break.

    The Layering Game
    Even in the middle of summer, temperatures can fluctuate so even quick getaway requires a couple of warmer pieces (our July mornings and nights in Southern California can be downright nippy). The easiest is to stash a light jacket in your weekender bag (or just throw it on the back seat if your are road tripping). Our pick is the ever fabulous Ruby Army Jacket because it goes with everything.


    Downtime Chic
    The name of the game is relaxation so you should dress accordingly but still look put-together. Chic basics in solid hues are perfect for downtime but can also stand up to any lunch reservation and transition to evening with a couple of tweaks. So remember the golden rules. a) you can’t go wrong with the perfect white tee, and b) black leggings rule the weekend.  Don't your understated jewelry as the final touch.


    A Dress to Impress
    While you don’t want to lug around a mountain of clothes “just in case” you do want to pack one gorgeous dress. If you’re a bit boho try something with some hippie chic statement elements like embroidery or tassels (such as the Ilene Embroidered Cotton Caftan Dress). For something with a little more skin in the game, opt for a stretch cotton jersey like our Bardot Cotton Slub Blouson Dress. Either way, both work with a classic leather slide shoe.


    In the Swim
    You’ll most likely need a swimsuit at some point (we are guessing the Air bnb has a hot tub because that is a must-have). A cute suit takes up virtually no space and a one-piece swimsuit can always double as tank when paired with pair of denim or cotton poplin pants, while a colorful bikini top looks fab poking out from underneath a button down for day trips.


    Cool Coverup
    Any time spent by water in a bathing suit (regardless of whether it’s the ocean, a lake or a the pool) you’ll want a great cover-up. Pick the right one and it can easily do double duty as a dress for casual lunches. Look for one in a traditional kaftan style and with hot-weather ethnic embellishments like tassels and embroidery. You can’t go wrong with the Aubree Embroidered Cotton Cover-Up.


    One Hit Wonders
    A huge trend this summer has been the re-invention (and update) of the one-piece or romper. Not only is it a whole outfit that you’ll put on in ten seconds, but it’s the perfect morning till eve outfit for everything from museum visits, shopping trips or day trips.


    Statement Pieces
    No weekend bag is complete without a notice-me top that can instantly elevate a pair of denim, cut-offs or a casual pull-on pencil skirt. For summer we love anything that’s packed with lace, cold shoulder cut-outs, ruffles or tassels.


    Shoe Game
    Even if you're a diehard heels girl, depending on your destination, you’re going to want something comfortable to get you from point A to point B—even if that’s just from the pool to a nearby restaurant. Why not skip the heels and go from some day-to-night leather slides that will work with cut-offs or a cute dress, as well a pair or cool, retro sneaks if you plan on doing some walking.


    All About Accessories
    Since the name of the game is packing light, the easiest way to customize any outfit is with a couple of 24/7 accessories. We love layering necklaces of different lengths, a couple of rings, and as it’s the middle of summer, a classic Panama hat is must have. Since your feet will be on full display, book that pedicure appointment a couple of days before you go and make a bold choice!


    Carry On
    No weekend trip is complete without the perfect weekend bag. Since you’re a packing pro and we’ve streamlined your choices down to smart, double-duty options, an oversized tote bag should be all you need. If you’re going somewhere beachy, pick one that is woven from a natural straw but otherwise a classic leather in black or brown is the way to go. Now, hit the road.

The consummate creative, a few years ago she added ceramic artist to her resume, so nowadays you’ll most likely find her in her home studio where she hand forms beautiful, organically shaped vessels and pots from clay and basketweave.

    Summer Trends To Try Now


    So, summer doesn’t officially start until June 20th, but when it comes to fashion, we’ve been on board with all things hot for weeks. Getting dressed in the warmer months feels extra effortless since you need less; plus brighter, longer days gives us carte blanche to be inspired by colors, prints and all styles that show a hint of skin. From now until Labor Day, almost anything goes and here’s what we love.




    The Stripe Stuff
    Classic breton or a rainbow of color. When it comes to stripes, we’re in line and ready to go. The best way to look at stripes is like a neutral, because the linear look seems to pair with most pieces. For summer, two of our faves are the Ginnie Tank because it’s a casual classic, while the Nova Top is a sexy summer personified with its sherbet shades of vertical stripes teamed with the cold shoulder. Hot stuff.


    Boho Stitching
    The benefit of timeless, artisan-inspired styles are two-fold. Firstly, in the hot days of summer, these breezy silhouettes, crafted from the softest cotton, are pretty much what we want to live in. Secondly, they have a certain wanderlust and handcrafted quality that will make everyone think you just got back from a trek across Morocco on a camel.


    Sunset Hues
    Summer color palettes are always bursting with bold hues and our favorites this season are all things red, dusty rose, watermelon, pale blue and classic navy. While you should always have a steady supply of basic black and white staples, never underestimate the chic appeal of slipping on the Corra Dress in tomato red or the Nella Tee in Guava.


    Cool and Cut Off
    If you don’t own a pair of denim cut offs, then we suggest you head over and fill up your cart with the Cindy Frayed Hem Boyfriend Shorts—it’s the best way to get your denim fix while the temps are climbing. Add some unexpected glam by pairing them with a black cami or lace top for outdoor evening, or try a stripe tee to channel your inner vintage Brigitte Bardot for daytime deliciousness.


    Onesie Love
    For weekends and vacations, one of the easiest and chicest pieces to try is the jumper or romper. Aside from the slip on appeal of getting dressed in 10 seconds, it’s the epitome of effortless dressing. Perfect for weekend errands, poolside jaunts and a must-have in any weekender bag. Try the Farah Woven Cotton Stripe Sleeveless Jumper
    or Onna Romper.


    Say It With Flowers
    Floral prints are everywhere for summer—from runways packed with printed couture gowns to traditional ethnic embroideries on casual cotton tops. It’s the easiest way to add a girlie twist to unstructured styles, and just like stripes (see above) a small sized floral print can be mixed with other patterns like pinstripes or gingham.
    Try Adelene Vintage Floral Sleeveless Top.


    Frill Seeker
    The quickest way to take an everyday basic from ho-hum to hot is to add a fresh frill. Ruffles can reinvent the classic tee (like the Pamina Cotton Slub Ruffle Tee) and add the perfect amount of sex appeal to a dress or crisp cotton top like the Chenille Cotton Poplin Ruffle Top. A ruffled hemline, sleeve or collar also gives a gorgeous fluidity that’s always flattering.


    Details, Details
    Since you’re not wearing tons of layers of clothing, the easiest way to customize any outfit with your personal style stamp is with accessories. For summer, we love layering necklaces of different lengths, a couple of rings, a hat (for practical and fashion purposes) and, finally, don’t forget your mani/pedi—hands down the easiest way to add a pop of personal style to look. Go for the bold.
