Temperatures are threatening to climb past 70 degrees this week in San Francisco, and we're over shopping our closet. We have a major shopping itch that needs scratching.
So we turned to San Francisco-based stylist Erin Frederick for inspiration. When the South Beach resident isn't styling for brands like Benefit Cosmetics and Nice Collective, she's managing brand relations for tech start-up Stipple. We chatted with Frederick about her spring style, what she's shopping for this season, and where she's buying it.
Where do you head for vintage prints, dresses and skirts?
When shopping for new spring pieces I love to treasure hunt at Goodwill and Thrift Town. But for a more edited/organized vintage shopping experience, I head to Wasteland.
What warm weather items are you looking for this season?
Since the temperature doesn't vary much in SF, even in Spring, I like to stick to lots of basics. It makes getting dressed a lot easier.
How would you describe your spring style?
My personal style is black on black on black. My wardrobe consists of mostly black, white and grey but I like to mix different shapes and textures.
If you could be any style icon who would you be?
If I were a model/celebrity I would hopefully be Mick Jagger or his daughter, Georgia May! I like a simple, slightly androgynous look.
As a South Beach local where are you shopping pit stops?
My favorite pit stop in SOMA is Philz, for Coffee, and then I have to head downtown to Barney's and H&M.
