The hautest gifts are those unique, rare finds that your recipient hasn’t already seen on the backs or appendages of 100 other women walking down the chic streets of San Francisco. How to hunt down these elusive treasures? Buy from local designers. Brooke Schell, San Francisco fashion maven and publicist extraordinaire is making it easy for you this holiday season with a trunk show featuring more than a dozen local designers on December 3 from 6 to 9pm at Krimsa on Union Street. Prices will be 20 to 50 percent off, and a part of profits will go to charities chosen by each designer.
Be sure not to miss NOAH handbags, (it’s an acronym for no animal harmed, yay!). The line has been featured in Oprah magazine, and Gump’s will soon carry the PVC laser-cut bags. The totes fold over into clutches (see below), which makes two awesome bags in one. So snap them up at the trunk show for a discount before it’s too late!
If you’re still not convinced, a wine tasting will be hosted by Fritz, the underground Dry Creek winery, and sweet treats from Cakes ‘n Cups will also figure prominently. Yeah, that’s what I thought — see you there (more details below)!
