Frances Austen is a brand that is near and dear to my heart not only because it is female-owned (which I always love to support) but the founder, Margaret Coblentz is a childhood friend also from Winnetka. She launched this brand a few years ago, I actually helped plan a launch party at San Francisco’s adored The Riddler Wine Bar, which you can read about here and it’s been growing since and I absolutely adore the high-quality, stunning cashmere sweaters and now socks they offer. See more of my favorites below!
My newest Winter obsession is my pink Frances Austen Mock Neck Tie Back Sweater in Gum (pink). This has become a staple I wear multiple times a week whether during the week for work, in the evening for dinner or a date, it’s super versatile and I get compliments on it every time I wear it. Purchase online here.
I am super excited about the newest Frances Austen cashmere item their Cashmere Sock. This is on my wish list for the holidays. How can you not want a pair of cozy, soft & gorgeous cashmere socks. Purchase online here.
Burke Williams Spa
As a gal who loves an excuse for a Spa visit one of the best gifts I could give or receive (hint hint to any of my friends or family reading this) is a day at the Spa. Recently I got to experience The Burke Willaims Spa San Francisco (located in Westfield Mall) and it was great! I enjoyed a facial plus some time in their spa enjoying a hot tub, sauna, and steam room. Give the gift of Burke Williams this holiday season. Learn more on the Burke Williams Spa website here.
Mark & Graham
I am always looking for beautiful yet functional organization tools for all the travel in mt life. I feel like I finally found the most fabulous travel jewelry holder from Mark & Graham. And it’s well priced the larger rectangle is $89 or they have a smaller square size at $69. See both sizes below. I have the pink (surprise surprise) but there are lots of great options. More online at Mark & Graham here.
The Cuyana Summer hat is an item I can not live without. Whether I’m packing for a warm-weather vacation or heading to Wine Country during the fall I don’t leave home without this hat. Purchase online at Cuyana here.
I have used Stylebee a few times over the years and LOVE them. They come right to your door which is fabulous for us busy ladies with not much time to visit salons between our busy work and personal lives. And as a JSF reader, you can save $20 on your first session with the code EMartin. Below was my amazing hair thanks to Stylebee at the recent 2018 Saucy Awards. Read more about that event here.
Rent The Runway
As someone who is photographed 4-5 times a week at different events, I realized I either needed to triple my closet or start using Rent the Runway where I can rent 4 different items at once, swapping out as much or as little as I want. I’ve been doing Rent the Runway (out of pocket I am not partnering with them on a blogger discount) and it’s great! Every month I probably rotate between 4-7 items and this way when I attend events I am not seen in the same dress more than once and I get to try various designers and looks. If you’re looking to join email me, firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you a referral code and you’ll save on your first-month subscription.
Learn more online here and don’t forget to email me so I can email you the referral (sadly there is no code I can share with you!).
Epi Center MedSpa San Francisco
What girl do you know who doesn’t want a little botox or anti-aging treatments? It took until my late 30’s to start giving anti-aging treatments a try and now I’m hooked! I recently experienced a Photo Facial treatment at Epi Center MedSpa Sam Francisco, the first salon to offer this treatment (as they actually invented it) and the results were amazing. I had four large sunspots on my face which vanished (it takes about two weeks for them to fade away) but they did. As a JSF reader, you can save $50 on your first treatment by mentioning JetSetting Fashionista when you book. Find more info and make your appointment on their website here.
