If you recall, a few months back I listed out some of my favorite places to shop around San Francisco -- topping my list were a few local boutiques and start up sites based in the area. One that's becoming a quick repeat offender for my weekend routine is a neighborhood haunt of mine: Elizabeth Charles in Pacific Heights.
Of course, I was drawn in for the beautifully-styled window mannequins and the lust-worthy inventory (hello Isabel Marant, Kenzo and, my personal fave, Roksanda Ilincic), but it wasn't really until I got to know the shop owner and founder, Elizabeth herself, when we worked together for my Fashion Week wardrobe that I realized I was hooked! She's got an incredible dry wit, a wicked sense of styling and an Aussie to boot (so needless to say, I've been picking her brain about where to stay during our trip).
Don't you just love when your favorite shops end up having the coolest shop owners? Makes you just want to hang out all day! (And trust me, I'm guilty of this.)
Stay tuned for more details about a fun event I have in the works with Elizabeth Charles. In the meantime, let's just say you can save the date of November 20th.
And on a side note, if you're a Rachel Zoe fan, you should check out the Hangout on Air that a few of my team members worked on with her. Tune in at 1:30 pm PST today!
