May I introduce you to Friday’s San Francisco Starlet, Britt Stephens from Fab Sugar. So excited about my upcoming trip to San Francisco to see the first Scarlet Kurt Geiger doors in the US and to meet Britt in person! What can I say, she most certainly fab my sugars. Enjoy!
Scarlett: What is your Kurt Geiger style of the moment?
Scarlett’s SF Starlet ‘Fab Sugar’: For day, I’m obsessed with the Liquorice flats. I love that the toe is pointy, but not too pointy, and the gunmetal studs make me feel really edgy.
Scarlett: What do you feel is unique to SF style?
Scarlett’s SF Starlet ‘Fab Sugar’: Layering! Living in SF has definitely taught me about the art of layering. I’m never without a light sweater and a big, chunky scarf.
Scarlett: The art of layering. I hear that! And do you think your Everything but the Dress can take you through from day to night?
Scarlett’s SF Starlet ‘Fab Sugar’: Absolutely! I only wear things that can take me from work to play — my go-to look is a pair of skinny jeans, a thin, slouchy tee, and a blazer. Then I’ll throw on a great necklace, a thin ring, and a stack of mixed bangles and friendship bracelets. Anyone that knows me knows that I never have a naked wrist! I love layering the Zoe Chain Bracelet, Ellie Thread Cuff, and Cassie Bracelet with my other treasures — I never take them off. It’s important to me that I can go straight from the office to a happy hour or event without having to change — that’s another awesome thing about the KG Liquorice flats!
Scarlett: A day in the life of… You?
Scarlett’s SF Starlet ‘Fab Sugar’: My typical day starts around 7:30am — I get up, turn on NPR, and have a cup of coffee while I catch up on the news. Then, I take my dog for a walk (she’s a 10-lb Chihuahua/Terrier mix so our morning walk doesn’t last super long) and start getting ready for the day. I check emails and Twitter updates as I walk to work so I’m up to speed when I get to my desk, and I’ll usually stop at La Boulange for a latte and pastry. My work day is a mix of fashion and celebrity news — very busy, and always exciting. I may write 2-3 posts before filming an episode of Pop Sugar Rush, which is our daily news video series. I’ll grab lunch from one of my favorite spots in the neighborhood, like Working Girls Café or Fleur de Sel, but if I’m feeling like a walk I’ll head to Toaster Oven or The Melt (best grilled cheese ever!). After work, I’ll usually meet up with friends for a drink at Lush Lounge, my favorite bar on Polk Street. After that, I’ll go home, make some dinner, and spend a few hours winding down with a book or crossword puzzle (my slightly nerdy obsession).
Thank you Britt! If only I could persuade ‘Mildred’ my bulldog to do anything other than be carried… *Scarlett
