This week, I spotted plenty of statement pieces on the streets of San Francisco: a leather bustier, blue metallic Doc Martens, and loads of leopard print. But that's only a sliver of the fashion I came across.

From punk to prep and neutral to neon, S.F. has it all when it comes to style. The diversity is exciting; I never know what I'll see when I round a corner -- and this week certainly had surprises in store. We're finally getting a taste of that summer warmth everyone else in the country keeps talking about, and it seems to have inspired our fashionistas to celebrate their wild sides.

Her colorblocked outfit is so simplistic and elegant. The mustard and navy combination is stunning, and the detail of her oxblood boots is a great final flourish.

  • 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.'"
