S.F. Street Style: Personal Panache Shines in S.F.

I usually don't go out looking for a week's worth of fashionistas alone. More often than not, my boyfriend goes with me. He's really enthusiastic; pointing out eye-catching passersby and saying, "What about her?" He says it really loudly, so the person can usually hear. (If you've experienced a couple awkwardly checking you out recently, it was us. Sorry.) But despite his sharp eye, I don't always photograph the people he notices. I think it's because I'm looking for specific things that I have trouble explaining to him.

Personal style is difficult to articulate. For me, it's not just about picking a nice outfit off a mannequin. It's all about the way individual fashion evolves after the shopping stops and the creative process begins. I like seeing surprising combinations that could only have come from a unique closet. Check out the stylish people I met this week.

This is Krylon. He's a cashier at Whole Foods, and constantly sweet and chatty. I told him I was spending the day shooting photos for a fashion blog, and he said, "I'm ready," whipped of his apron, confident in the outfit beneath. I couldn't argue; he was ready. He sewed these python-print pants himself, and matched them with lavender plugs, sweater, and shoes. The shade of purple is flattering and muted enough to complement the wild print.

Kylon has rung me up before. He always says something that makes it an event.
