The Junior League of San Francisco celebrates it’s centennial anniversary this year with their 85th Annual Fashion Show: A Fashionable Legacy. Both the luncheon and dinner shows, will be held this Friday at the Fairmont Hotel.
Each year the show features members of the JLSF, their hubbies and their children as models in the elaborate runway show. Model trainer, Charleston Pierce, is back on the scene this year, to help these charitable ladies get officially runway ready.

With several new exhibits, and various free admission days*, it’s a great week for museum hopping. This Sunday, take a free historical tour of Bali, at the Asian Art Museum. On Tuesday, double-up with free entrance to the Fine Arts Museums of SF. The de Young has already drawn a celebrity audience with Balenciaga and Spain, while the Legion of Honor continues with Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave.
Indulge in culture and celebrate design with a well crafted outfit of your own. This week, we’re opting for a soft, spring palette, with two key trends: florals and convertible handbags. Museum-going means lots of walking. Make sure those feet stay comfy with a pair of soft leather wedges you’ll cherish all season long. Read More…
