This week, there's a must-attend gathering for all stylish go-getters: the jewelry enthusiasts, the sartorial pros, and even the modern gentlemen. As shopping takes on a twist for the better, almost all your days and nights have the potential to bring you some seriously good fun. Seriously, no matter where your week takes you, there is nothing like sipping some bubbly while ogling a diamond or two. Get all the details below, and pick up some pretty pieces for yourself before holiday gift-giving takes flight.
Tiffany & Co. Atlas Collection Party
A bit of midweek sparkle could be the solution to your workday blues. That is why we strongly advise you find yourself at the doors of Tiffany & Co. for the launch of its latest Atlas collection and an evening hosted by the gorgeous Aimee Song (the blogging powerhouse behind Song of Style), and none other than us here at Refinery29. Expect your holiday wish list to start Thursday evening, because this collection of jewels ain't messing around.
When: Thursday, September 19, 7 to 9 p.m.
Where: Tiffany's & Co., 350 Post Street (between Powell and Stockton streets); 415-781-7000.
RSVP: here!
Macy's Glamorama
It really seems as if this could be San Francisco's unofficial fashion week, with big hitters like the Macy's Glamorama event swinging through town. A trifecta of an evening that includes a red carpet, Sheryl Crow and Cirque De Soleil as headliners, fall collections from industry lusters like Rachel Roy, Calvin Klein, and Maxmara. This night may feed all our style appetite at once, is it possible? To make it even more golden, we are giving away two tickets for some lucky (and well-dressed) peeps. To win, just drop a comment below and tell us who your favorite designer from the three is and why you love them! Good luck and we will see you on that scarlet carpet!
When: Thursday, September 19, 7 p.m. to 12 a.m.
Where: The Orpheum Theatre, 119 Market Street (between Leavenworth and Hyde streets); 888-746-1799.
Tickets: Buy here
The Haberdash Fashion Show
Men of S.F. often get shorthanded when it comes to style appreciation. Not that you gents don't have the skills, it's just that those flip flops are so easy to slip on. We know, we know — it takes that extra bit of effort to spruce up, but on one night alone, Haberdash will happen and all your favorite boutiques will be in one spot. With a sleek, curated runway show by Artful Gentleman and boutiques such as Mollusk, Welcome Stranger, and Elder and Pine on hand, you may never have to shop again (that may be pushing it). To keep your spirits high in the face of fashion, there will be live music performances by Woods and DJ Peaking Lights, as well as grooming stations and photo booths. Tips from the pros will be in abundance, along with samples of Ploom's tobacco vaporizers. We see a very long bromance in sight.
When: Tuesday, September 24, 8 p.m. to midnight
Where: Great American Music Hall, 859 O'Farrell Street (between Larkin and Polk streets); 415-885-0750.
Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the door; buy 'em here!
Lazy Twins Pop-Up Party
We gave you the heads-up when it first set up shop, and now Lazy Twins is throwing a not-to-miss party! The Lazy Twins pop-up with Storenvy's brick-and-mortar, will be shaking up your Wednesday night, with DJ Bluz and Snappea PhotoBooth. The standalone will be featured until the end of the month, with the best looks from its buyers who find themselves between S.F. and London stocking the shelves.
When: Wednesday, September 18, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Storenvy at Crocker Galleria, 50 Post Street (between Kearny and Montgomery streets); no phone.
Simon Doonan Book Signing at Barneys New York
Simon Doonan will have you on the floor of Barneys New York, laughing, come Saturday. Yes, this fashion fantasy is close to grasp during the book signing of his newest tome The Asylum, A Collage of Couture Reminiscences and Hysteria. Pages and pages full of the highest-end dirt are in there, making it a must-read. The man is the creative ambassador-at-large of Barneys New York, so obviously, he knows a thing or two about the industry and the amazing figures who run it.
When: Saturday, September 21, 3 to 5 p.m.
Where: Barneys New York, 77 O'Farrell Street (At Stockton Street) on the main floor; 415-268-3500.
RSVP: here!
Juniper Ridge Field Lab Live Fragrance Distillation
The Exploratorium has long brought us joy, but now it attracts our senses on a whole new level. The Juniper Ridge Field Lab will be parking its truck at the Exploratorium's Market Day Festival concocting au natural fragrances, just for you. Who doesn't want their bespoke scent?! A little bit of jasmine here, a splash of tuberose lilies there — it's all up to you! And, if you're wondering — all the scents are hand-picked and sourced off the California coast, including auras like Big Sur and Caruthers Canyon Backpacker's Cologne.
When: Saturday, September 21, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Exploratorium, Pier 15 (at The Embarcadero); 415-528-4360.
