"I have grown to love secrecy. It seems to be the one thing that can make modern life mysterious or marvelous to us. The commonest thing is delightful if one only hides it. When I leave town now I never tell my people where I am going. If I did, I would lose all my pleasure. It is a silly habit, I dare say, but somehow it seems to bring a great deal of romance into one’s life." -Oscar Wilde
Gotta love secrets.
Gotta love secrets.

Ladies, two words: cargo. pants. Have them skinny or baggy, either will fly.
Fellas, for this Fall/Winter grab a military jacket, pair it with some combat boots...or don't...whatever...a jacket like the one above would be a great addition to any male wardrobe. I especially like this one and its color flavor.
You can never judge how great the VS Fashion Show really is by pictures, you have to watch the whole thing. And me, being the lover of lingerie that I am, am a little bit more judgmental than most. With that said, these are my 3 favorite pieces that I have seen from pictures...very excited to see the whole show.
So in San Francisco I have discovered uncharted territory for myself... Polk St, (Sacramento st and North, don't go south) contains a bunch of hidden gems. Firstly, they have a magazine shop that is total heaven (but actually hell because you want to buy EVERYTHING and it costs an arm and a leg)...magazines that I've never even seen in real life were at this store. Then they have the coolest vintage candy store, called go figure, The Candy Store...spent a ridiculous amount of money on candy...and then I stumbled upon a sample sale store which was amazing. I found some stunning Nina Ricci, Stella McCartney, and one of my new favorite brands, Olive Olivia...it's a Los Angeles based brand and its totally cute...think RVCA meets Alexander Wang. There are so many hidden gems on Polk St, I can't even write about them all...from cheese to wine, to clothing to shoe stores, there is everything. I suggest if you live in San Francisco, spend a Sunday over there, if not because I can't remember the names of most of the stores, then go because it's amazing.
