  • Jessica Quirk donned Kate Spade NY for her S.F. book party.

Last week, fashion blogger Jessica Quirk came to San Francisco to promote her new book, What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes for Personal Style. Azalea Boutique and Shop It to Me threw her a book party, complete with tiny cupcakes and champagne, and the city's fashion bloggers arrived in style to meet her. Quirk runs a very popular version of the usual "what I wore" blog formula, posting daily photos and descriptions of her outfits. She usually includes the occasion for the outfit, a touch most bloggers overlook and I really appreciate. Her book walks fashionistas-in-training through the process of creating their dream wardrobes, complete with illustrations.

But even better than meeting Quirk and finally getting a peek at her book was meeting the women who follow her blog. I was so inspired by all the lovely ladies who turned out for the event. I want to befriend them so I can borrow their clothes. Check out whose closets I'll be raiding after the jump.

I'm excited to see maxiskirts replacing maxidresses. Maxidresses tend to have a laid-back hippie vibe that isn't particularly flattering. Maxiskirts, however, add a touch of definition in the waist that makes all the difference. I saw a lot of them that night, and this is my second-favorite (you'll see my all-time favorite later). The color is gorgeous, especially against the pink tank. Also, look at the little gold bow on the belt! Cute!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
