Oh boy. San Francisco. What can I say? Looking back at these pictures makes me miss it so much. Here's the first batch of my SF photo diary complete with food, trollies, and night lights...

The day started out early at 9:00 am at the Chictopia office in downtown SF... of course, lacking a keen sense of direction (lol), I walked in the complete opposite direction and turned out to be 20 minutes late. Eventually I found my way there and met Helen and Corinne, the lovely founders of Chictopia, and Barbro and Frenchy (the other two Style Sip winners)! After a quick breakfast, we all headed over to the Kmart in Hayward and were shown how company visuals put together themed outfits (i.e. Route 66, Jaclyn Smith, Attention). I found myself more drawn to the Jaclyn Smith line because of the sophisticated, contemporary, and pristine look I found in that section. Check out the Kmart line here.

We had a three-hour downtime before resuming with dinner and I ended up meeting up with some friends. It's always so refreshing catching up with local friends and getting to eat at places a tourist would otherwise never have thought of trying. Anyway, Barbro, Frenchy and I met with Helen and Corinne and Kmart representatives at a beautiful Indian restaurant in SOMA (it was DEE-LISH, to say the least! ...I mean, c'mon, you can't go wrong with mango lassi-flavored creme brulee). It was an awesome experience getting to talk about where/how/when/why we started blogging, providing input, and just enjoying our conversation regarding fashion over good, good food.

Helen and Corinne have heard me tell them this many times already but I want to give another huge, huge THANK YOU to Chictopia (and Kmart!) for making this all happen for me. I've always loved San Francisco but meeting some of the sweetest girls in SF and being treated to decadent restaurants made this trip particularly memorable. I will try to put up some clips I took with the Flip cam we received once I ace my midterm (modesty is overrated, lol! Jk *cross fingers*) on Thursday and once I configure how to edit video (a realm I've never ever touched). I have one more SF photo set waiting, stay posted! x

You look like you're enjoying yourself in these pictures! Love your smile. Reading about your trip makes me excited about a blogger meet in SF I was planning. I want to ask if you're interested in attending but it might be a hassle since it seems like such a distance for you. I'd love to see that last photo, and your video if you ever have it uploaded!

I love your blog. =) Being a Norcal girl myself, I just moved to Vancouver, all your photos make me miss San Fran. >__< Nostalgia! As always you look lovely, and I hope you had fun at the blogger meet!

I was also curious as to what filters you use in editing your photos, the saturation levels and softness are gorgeous!
