If everyone's supposedly got a soul mate, we'll venture a guess to say they've also got a closet-mate, too. You know — that one person out there whose picture-perfect wardrobe hits all the right notes for you? Whose accessories are a painfully perfect mix of butterfly leather staples and a variety of timeless heels? She's the owner of the one closet you'd simply kill to raid, and for us, all that belongs to Bay Area beauty Julia Engel.
The inspiration-maker posts her crisp, clean looks on her blog, Gal Meets Glam, but took some time off from being professionally chic to traipse through her favorite SF hood. She gives us the downlow on what's hip, where we should eat, and why we should always turn to layering. Click through to get a hefty dose of what's-what in the Bay Area, and save a lil' room for some gelato on the way home, too.
