Sunday was a big, exhausting day for me. First I met friends at Dolores Park. Then I went to two screenings at the first-ever San Francisco Fashion Film Festival, organized by three lovely local bloggers: Annie Wilson, of Poetic and Chic; Kim Mitchell Stokes of J’Adore Couture; and Adelle McElveen of The Fashionista Lab. Congrats, ladies, on organizing such a terrific event. I’m so impressed by your achievement.
In between screenings of Miss Representation–an excellent documentary about the way women and girls are portrayed in the media, written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom– and Marie Antoinette (a ridiculously gorgeous film written and directed by the super-styley Sofia Coppola), I met another friend for dinner at The Monk’s Kettle on 16th Street. That’s where I saw this interesting man bag, which, I’ve concluded after a bit of online sleuthing, appears to be made by a company called Peasants and Travelers. I can’t quite articulate why I like it, I just do. Something about the cork pattern, the vintage feel, the fact that it reminds me of a cross between a pocketbook and a messenger bag, or even all of the above? What do you think? Yes or no?
