As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work 'round the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground, to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. This week, from a double dose of sartorial lookbooks to Silicon Valley made into a mockery (gulp), here's everything you need to know.

Click your heels together! Our beloved local cobbler, Martha Davis, is getting back in the shoe-making game — and incorporating some California love. The designer has debuted a wedge sandal with a heel in the shape of our golden state. We’ll be welcoming her, and those shoes, with open arms wallets. (Racked SF)

Silicon Valley should be feeling a burn right about now, because when comedian John Oliver roasts the techie crowd at the Crunchies, he doesn't spare any punches. Prepare for a splitting side-ache! (Tech Crunch)

Who knew white noise could sound look so pretty? Inspired by the soothing sound, Alyssa Nicole’s latest collection is full of flowy ivory gowns, snapped in all their glory for the brand's Spring 2014 lookbook. (Alyssa Nicole)

If your jewelry box has been looking a little too bare for your liking, here’s an assortment that will have it twinkling in no time. Faris’ Tropical Modernism lookbook is so chock-full of must-have pieces, you’ll catch yourself reaching through the screen for the gems. (Faris)

Expect all your friends who are employed by Facebook to start updating their statuses to "I’m On A Boat!" Yup, the social networking company has launched its very own ferry service on the Bay. (SF Gate)
