ECCENTRIC ELEGANCE: A HALLOWEEN COMEBACK

Francesca was inspired by the drama, sophistication and humor Sophia Loren always exuded in comedic roles- being a bit cheeky, flirty and fun. This character came to life in a bright red 1970s inspired mini dress, suede vintage Ferragamo bag, and bright yellow bangles to offset the cloudy San Franciscan skies. Valentina embraced one of her favorite American actresses- the elegant Faye Dunaway - and her strong, yet feminine look from the 1960s. The clean and slightly formal pairing of the dress and blazer were accompanied by a soft leather, bright purple color-block clutch and a care-free hairstyle, which are somewhat signature pieces for Valentina. To bring out her inner geek she threw on her reading glasses and embraced a quirky, ladylike push and pull of opposites - creating a tension via color, pattern and preconceived connotations. Familiar, but edgy...quite the naughty librarian gone wild!

One must look back to look forward, and we certainly love to reinvent ourselves through elements of the past.  Pacific Heights set the scene for our retro Halloween romp – a fairytale story unfolding by the Golden Gate Bridge paying homage to classic Italian fashion icons mixed with lushly individualistic theme of a quirky Grandma gone chic.
