collections go/see/buy personal shopper Uncategorized

the pieces in your wardrobe that you turn to again and again are the ones that feel good, are well made, and fit like a dream. vince is that line, chocked full of pieces in no-frill colors (beige, brown, grey, cream) designed by a women who remains behind the scenes (here name is rea laccone) and lets the focus stay on the clothes.

last night, elisabeth of mission closet hosted an event at the san francisco store with stylist and personal shopper micki turner. turner was on hand to help shoppers find the perfect outfit for summer. it was great to see the two of them and other local bloggers, plus make a wishlist for summer and early fall. i’ve recently bought a pair of vince’s jeans, and they are the softest pair i own (without looking beat up). the “drop ankle trouser” has trouser pockets and a slightly slouchier fit. vince’s prices are a bit on the higher side, but for the quality, fabrics, and silhouettes; it’s worth it. you’ll never feel trendy in something from vince…you’ll have it forever and it will work forever.

vince is available at their two bay area shops (38 geary between kearny & grant and stanford shopping center), bloomingdales, saks, neiman marcus, nordstrom, and online
