Chinatown Pretty

San Francisco’s Chinatown is like nothing I’ve ever really experienced before. For one, it’s one of my least favorite places to drive through because the streets are so narrow and there are people everywhere – not like Seattle at all. However, you’ll find some of the most authentic dishes at some of the best restaurants that remind me the most of home. I don’t know about you, but if I’m ever looking for Chinese food, it’s definitely not going to be at some fusion-esque place or PF Changs.

I stumbled across this blog last night that proves that SF’s Chinatown offers more than just food, but an array of fashion. Chinatown Pretty highlights the best in head-to-toe looks from the local seniors. So cute, right?

How Do We Get These Walls

Black sleeveless blouse – Madewell / Back pants – Uniqlo / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom / Purse – Vince Camuto

My friend Sandeep just returned from an extravagant European vacation so after her and I caught up over a Thai dinner a couple of weeks ago, we decided to venture out over to the nearby Santana Row. I didn’t think that we were going to be able to find a nice backdrop for a photo, but this was a hidden gem. Doesn’t it look like we travel really really far away to some place amazing instead of an outdoor shopping mall?! I’m donning my usual uniform this summer – mostly all black and that wavy hair that I just can’t stop spending an extra 15-20 minutes on every morning.

Lollapalooza 2015 Street Style

I was invited by a friend to go to Lollapalooza this year using an artist wristband for Tove Lo and it was the best invitation I had ever gotten. Festivals like Lollapalooza cost hundreds of dollars to attend when you include the ticket, the flights to Chicago, and the accommodations. I had never been to Chicago before and I was so excited to go until I realized I had a work event the same weekend. It was the biggest let down, but this was the closest I’d ever gotten to something like this and I don’t doubt that it won’t happen again. Maybe the next invitation will be even better! Street style at music festivals is one of my favorite things to cover because it’s not just about what you wear to the event, it’s about being comfortable and wearing something that is somewhat functional. Here’s how these attendees did Lollapalooza this past weekend and they’re basically nailing it:

Refinery 29’s Street Style

This post from Refinery 29 doesn’t have much to do with anything really except for THAT is my sweater. Refinery 29 caught Megan on the street and photographed her for their street style segment because her outfit is kind of awesome. Yes, that sweater looks just as good in real life. I love.

In case you’re wondering, it’s Urban Outfitters and was on sale last month for just $20 bucks.
