Chris - 18th Street, SF

chrismoore"I like to combine punk aesthetics with French New Wave."

I like the proportions on Chris: his snug and small pea coat, his jeans, fitting, but not too tight. And I like the novelty that a suitcase is his merse.

Military-esque boots.

Sydney - Dolores Street, SF

sydney"Generally the 90s, floral, Blossom, grunge rock. That's pretty much it."

I admire a woman that follows the ethos of wearing normal cute clothes to bike. Also, those over the knee socks are cute and practical.

Love these suede wingtips.

Skeet - 18th Street, SF


You've seen Skeet before. He's one of my well dressed neighbors (nice blue shirt, white denim) and he plays in the Mindless Things, a garage-y band, which is fortunate since he dresses the part well. This time I left out a shot of his Converse, since he frequently wears them.

Heidi and Sarah - 18th Street, SF

Heidi: "Um, I would say Paris."
Sarah: "A fun Sunday with an old friend. Saturday!"

Friends strolling with ice cream and cute shoes. Also loving Heidi's dress and coat.

A look at their shoes.

Sara - 18th Street, SF


Sara has laryngitis, but she still kindly stopped to pose for me. I like her tweed skirt and her gold leaf like earrings and the thematic matching leaf brooch on her coat.

Her boots are faux lace-up boots, but the faux laces don't extend up the entire boot, it's like it gave up at 10 holes.

Alexis - 18th Street, SF

"I really like vintage wool things and things that just feel homey. And I like eclectic things, I like a lot of... I like jewelry, like antique pieces. Just things that are simple and really nice and beautiful."

I like her duo of gold chains with charms on them, her double breasted blazer with 3/4 sleeves, and her beautiful Saks Fifth Avenue skirt (see the rosette at the waist!).

Great square satchel.

Cute oxfords.

Jana - 18th Street, SF

"The Midwest, that's where I'm from."

I like how she pairs gray and fuchsia for a shock of color on an overcast day.

A look at her Wisconsin winter worthy boots.

Charmmie - Minna Street, SF

charmmie"I guess the mix of old and new, just the typical answer. I love a bright color piece and everything else pretty much muted, so the cardigan was the main center piece and I worked off of that. I wanted black and gray and just a brown to offset it. I don't want to be a walking rainbow lady."

Love that seafoam green cardi/blazer and that so delicate it looks like it might disintegrate Ben Sherman printed tie-blouse. Her hoop earrings and brown handbag cast an early 80s vibe onto the outfit, her black booties bring it back to modern day.

Gorgeous black leather booties.

Conchetta - Third Street, SF

conchetta"I would just say the City, White House|Black Market 'cause that's where I work and a lot of different fashion magazines... And you know trying anything; music."

I'm always pro mid-day glamour. Seriously, look at the sequins on the bodice of her jumper. Also? That large handbag (small suitcase) is a beauty.

Heeled suede peep toes with buckle.

Jillian - Valencia Street, SF

"I guess I like to be comfortable and ... I don't really know. I just threw it on."

Something very Ali McGraw in Love Story about her trench and striped turtleneck. The addition of the vintage fur collar is a nice touch.

Capped brown booties (or possibly boots).

Kassi - Valencia Street, SF

"The weather. I knew it was gonna rain today, so I wanted something with a hood."

That tucked in floral scarf, those cerulean jeans, that wind defying jacket with hood - perfect.

Riding-esque boots.

Charlie - Valencia Street, SF

"I actually moved here from New York (where I used to work in an art gallery) and I just developed this style, I don't where it originates from."

Black and white with cardigan and tie. Check out how he pulls his cuffs out and rolls them onto the wristband of his cardi.

Converse the old standby.

Jamie - South Van Ness Avenue, SF


Jamie wears perfectly washed out hues and a pale yellow looped scarf. See how the blue of her crisp cotton dress is almost exactly the color of the sky.

Cute bi-color flats.

Lauren - South Van Ness Avenue, SF

laurenlas"Just life in San Francisco."

I like her big locket and her relaxed long sweater over dress proportion.

Slim riding boots with buckles at the knee.

Karanina - South Van Ness Avenue, SF

"Thrift stores and consumerism."

I like the shot of yellow in visual contrast to her mostly black and white ensemble. And I think it's the striped shirt, but there is something very Tatou's version of Coco Chanel about her (see below).

Cute black flats that takes a nod towards crocodile leather.

Audrey Tatou as Coco before Chanel.

Jillian - South Van Ness Avenue, SF

"Vintage chic."

There is an element of day glamor to Ms. Jillian that I dig. Like she's a real life version of Tom Ford's Gucci when he took Gucci and added a sheen of sexy to every outfit. Yes! Jillian is what the 80s inspired to be, but never got quite right; she knows how to put it all together.

Heeled loafers, snaps(?)/grommets(?) on her jeans (that match the ones on her wrist) and a small vintage handbag.
