SEPTEMBER IS FASHION month. For this fall’s shoot we again teamed up with the dynamic duo of pho- tography Trinette Reed and Chris Gramly for a shoot at the stunning
Ralston White Retreat in Mill Valley. The
Bay Area is all about microclimates and ever-changing weather patterns and that means it’s
important to dress in layers. Our model, herself a Marinite, sports the cozy outerwear that
will define the fall season.
Features continue with a look at the new
slow medicine trend and the always-popular
