Unexpected Adoption

Marc Jacobs Dress, Vintage Belt, Bakers Wedges, Ray Ban Aviators, Leather Handbag Purchased on Via Tornabuoni in Florence Italy

Post fashion week I've been experiencing an insatiable desire to purchase/wear neutral tones, delicate lace pieces, and military inspired clothing. However, while meandering around the store the other day, the colorful print on this little dress caught my eye and literally begged to be tried on.  Although it could not be farther from what I was originally searching for, I caved and was forced to give it a home.

  39. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.
    http://www.manorwestsf.com

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
