Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending a pop-up shop for the launch of Nichole Ciotti‘s fabulous collection for the London brand, Kingdom & State. Hosted by Liv Fashion Boutique, attendees had the opportunity to shop the new styles as well as mingle with Nichole herself, Tan the brand’s head designer, and other Bay Area bloggers. I feel very fortunate that such events take place routinely in San Francisco, and even more fortunate have discovered this lovely line!
No way was I leaving without a couple of new pieces, one of which was this amazing white top. You can never have enough white tops. But just like I alluded to last Friday, if you’re going to add another “basic” to your wardrobe, you might as well add one with a twist. This charming Textured Pleat Top is full of ’em! Appear effortlessly chic thanks to the structured fit, and high neck line. For the big debut, I hit the San Fran streets in stonewash distressed denim and added a pop of color with bright pink pumps and lips. I further accessorized with a black and white plaid clutch wallet, and a dramatic pair of bedazzled earrings, and for the first time ever on KK and GG, I styled my hair in a full bun. It was the right decision – the earrings and shirt are too good to run the risk of covering them up.
It was a good week for frequent Cow Hollow/Marina district shoppers! Sugarfina, the elite candy boutique opened its doors at 1837 Union Street. From sugar gummy lips, to martini olive almonds, to candy cocktails, if you’re looking for the finest assortment of sugar confections, this is your spot. While my hubby was very impressed with the single malt scotch cordials, I was pretty much drooling over the chocolate toasted hazelnuts that I may or may not have polished off after this shoot. Great news if you do not live in California, conveniently purchase all the sweets your heart desires straight from sugarfina.com!
