Let’s make this Memorial Day memorable and take advantage of some of the EPIC Memorial Day Sales! I’ve filtered through all the sales and only selected the best of the best to share – including the swimsuit I’m wearing above.
Spend More, Save More – up to 40% off when you spend $500
Plus only KatWalkSF readers will receive a leather gift with the code MEM519.
I have been wearing the Andie crossbody bag nonstop and couldn’t love it more! It is a perfect size and the two front products are a total lifesaver for my phones. If you buy anything this weekend, make it this bag. You will 100% have a memorable Memorial Day!
My favorite on-demand beauty app company Glamsquadhas launched its own line of makeup last week and I am HERE for it.
The simplicity of the Glamsquad Makeup line was the number one draw for me. There is no need to watch hours of Youtube tutorials to learn how to use the products or spend hours trying to determine your right shade. It’s buildable, blendable and blissfully basic. The carefully curated selection of four hero products includes a setting spray, tinted lip balm, highlighter, and primer. The collection is well priced with everything under $30 ($22-$28) and is cruelty-free and free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and mineral oil.
Additionally, being able to purchase the makeup that your artist used after your glam session is a MAJOR draw for me. I almost always take a photo of the product they use on me and almost always forget to include the color or another important detail, so I never actually buy the product I loved. These products can be purchased on the Glamsquad site and at select CVS stores.
Sold at retailers such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Shopbop, WAYF is the perfect addition to every fashion-savvy wardrobe. Designer and owner Meredith Fisher brings affordable luxury to the contemporary market with her label, WAYF (Where Are You From) and I am HERE for it. While I am partial to dresses from the WAYF collection, I am also a huge fan of her tops due to the details and approachable price point.

All you need for summer is a BOLD statement, but I 100% stand behind it! My favorite boho sandals got a sporty UPGRADE from Birkenstock, masters of comfort since 1774. Their iconic cushioned sandal was revised in allover rubber-like texture with sleek adjustable straps designed to exercise foot and leg muscles while providing comfort. At the ripe old age of 32, comfort is key and honestly the main selling factor in a summer sandal for me. The contoured footbed absorbs shock and mimics the shape of a healthy foot, while pronounced medial and metatarsal arches support the instep and ball of your foot.
I snagged these $39 Birkenstocks at the beginning of last summer and haven’t looked back. I own them in the white color and just like last summer they are selling out quickly. I know white summer sandals sound scary and NOT very practical, but these sandals are so easy to clean. Just grab a magic eraser, scrub them down and they will look brand new.
Say hello to the SF Rent the Runway Flagship Store!
This is the Largest RTR store to date and conveniently located in the heart of union square (two doors down from the big Banana Republic store). If you look up you will find Rent the Runway signage, but it does not have a street entrance. Look for the office building at 228 Grant Street, between Sutter and Post Street and you are there! Head up to the second floor and find more than 8,000 square feet of fashion. The store is two floors, with more than 3,000 pieces of clothing and accessories and more than 20 fitting rooms. Highlights for me included the work and lounge spaces with free WiFI, self-service check-out, and drop-off stations (because I’m always in a rush) and the instant service pick-up window.
Now let’s chat about RTR Unlimited
I just joined and I’m pretty sure that this is going to be a serious game changer for me.
How it works?
You select 4 styles (either online or at one of the five stores). I have the 4 style membership, but you can upgrade to additional styles. Keep your 4 styles as long as you want and exchange them at any time. Choose from any combination of dresses, clothing, and accessories. RTR Unlimited members have access to just about everything on the site, some exclusions may apply.
When you’re ready for something new, return 1, 2, 3 or all of your items using the prepaid UPS return label provided, and they’ll notify you when it’s time to select your next shipment. While selecting new items, you will also have the option to add Extra Spots to your Unlimited plan…and I pretty much feel like I’m on that path because I want EVERYTHING.
Once you confirm your RTR Unlimited shipment, it will take one business day to process before your order is shipped.
If you have an item at home you really love, you can use an exclusive members-only discount to purchase it for a fraction of the retail price. Once you do, a spot opens up for something new. In addition to the membership items on rotation, you also will have a 25% discount on RTR Reserve rentals.
You can pause your membership or cancel your next auto-renewal anytime.
Now for the answer to the most important question:
What happens if I lose or damage an RTR Unlimited piece?
Because we all know that the chances of me losing or damaging is high.
Your membership fee includes insurance for minor mishaps and general wear and tear.
Significant damage, lost pieces and theft are not covered. In those cases, you will be charged the price to purchase the piece using your members-only discount. In the event that the style is not available to purchase, the charge will be for the full retail price, plus applicable tax.
So it looks like you should be EXTRA careful with you RTR Unlimited pieces! I chose 2 handbags today and as I was checking out they told me that each bag has a dust bag in it and if I lose the dust bag an extra $35 will be billed to my account!
