there are hipsters everywhere, mission is a good place to find them. just hang out at taqueria cancun on mission and 19th (i think? incidentally the best vegetarian burrito on the west coast) and you'll see a few.

what magazine do you work at?

Kimair, do you work at an agency? If so, it is possible your company works with my company...

I work in the financial district and people dress pretty conservatively and boringly, IMO.

I was just in San Francsico today.

There are a lot of hipsters with their ipods. However there are also many well-dressed men, and women. Either on the conservative spectrum or the high fashion end. And not to be biased but many of the gay men in San Francisco dress very well.

There were some sales at the dept. stores so I went to take a look.

ahhh it's been me, davy and the art director carolina late in the night these past few days. I cant wait till it goes to press so i can just crashhhh. It's 6am and i'm still up doing work! TFS is keeping me a little sane.

As for shopping, my favorite place is American Rag on Van ness and geary I believe. It's a vintage botique/high end retailer. A lot of good vintage finds if you're too lazy to dig around thrift stores but you pay a bit more obviously. They also carry a lot of good high end designer stuff, though the names tend to vary every season.

yes, kelly steblay! she's awesome.that art collective we were in was called the marshall project, i only did one show with it because i moved shortly thereafter..it was called "borders, confinements and limitations" and kelly and i did a collaborative photo project together. if you went to that one, it was the one with different sized photographs mounted in the corner. did you do a piece for the show that had size requirements? i couldn't make it to that show but i heard it was awesome.

anyway, i'm a photographer and living in canada now, so if planet is ever doing a story on halifax or anything let me know...i'd be delighted to contribute to that magazine! it's always so beautifully designed. and the illustrations are so amazing.

did kelly move out of sf? she and her boyfriend max had such an awesome apartment on alamo square park!

Aww how sweet! Davy is such a dear. I can imagine how hectic it must be right before a magazine is published! I aspire to work in the magazine/fashion industry too. Hope you all are doing well, TFS provides a nice little sanctuary, doesn't it? Thanks for the tip, I've heard some good things about that shop so I'll be sure to check it out!

the crossroads stores all over the city are also pretty good..can sometimes be overpriced, but generally have some nice stuff. also, for shoes, there are 3 shoe biz stores on haight street alone, and a new one opened up in noe valley. they have some awesome shoes! subterranean shoe room just got bought out by shoe biz, but i'm not sure if they kept the same location on valencia or not.
