Meet the Stylist: Kaity Galvez
This month we welcome our newest stylist, Kaity Galvez, to the DC Style Factory fam! Kaity will be be taking DCSF services bi-coastal working with clients in the San Francisco Bay Area! We’re excited to have her on our team, and as a fun way of getting to know her we had her complete a little Q&A. Check out her answers to some of our favorite style questions that we ask our own clients, as well as a few about her hometown.
We know you’re a mom, so what’s your go-to mom friendly piece you can’t live without? A dark-wash, stretchy, skinny jean with a higher rise. They are extremely versatile and keep everything tucked in even while playing on the floor with your little one.
Favorite store for basics? I just purchased a few basics from Everlane for the first time and am loving them. I know the brand is hit or miss for many folks, but the basic white tee is my favorite right now. I can’t wait to visit their brick-and-mortar location on Valencia!
Favorite store for something special? I always have great luck at Off Saks! Locally, I love Carolina in Mill Valley for the latest and greatest in contemporary fashion. They carry emerging designers as well.
Brand new or thrifted? I am a huge fan of thrifted pieces… especially designer accessories. House of Couture, and Ver Unica. But, I also believe in buying new, modern, quality pieces that will last.
Describe your style. I’d say I’m a combination of French Chic/Classic/Urban Funky for my more casual, everyday style, but love a Bombshell look when I’m going out.
Describe San Francisco Style? It’s all about ease, comfort…and creative layering! There is always a sense of utility to what we wear because we walk a lot and the weather in unpredictable. So good comfortable shoes, an elevated layering piece, skinny jeans, and scarf is our uniform. It’s always laid back, but there is also a vibrant vintage clothing scene so I love seeing the two converge in local personal style.
Fashion icon? Tracee Ellis Ross
Flats or heels? Flats with my kids, heels everywhere else.
Favorite fashion trend? I will forever be a fan of giant sunglasses.
Who is your favorite designer? I am really loving Victoria Beckham right now.
Favorite place to read up on all things fashion and style? I look forward to reading The Business of Fashion email in my inbox every morning.
As a Bay Area resident, what’s one thing you always tell people not to miss when visiting the area? A trip to the Marin Headlands and burritos anywhere in the Mission district!
Favorite San Francisco restaurant? Right now a greek restaurant called Kokkari has been responsible for my most recent “best meal ever.”
Best thing about living on the West Coast? The weather and the ability to be outside almost all year.
