View from Marin

AS FALL MAKES its season-changing arrival, so do end-of-year fashion trends. For this fall’s fashion spread we decided to mix it up and have a little fun. Shot on location at Tiburon’s Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary by Claudia Goetzelmann, the feature offers a little ’60s style mixed with a dash of ’90s grunge. Fashion editor Veronica Sooley and co-stylist Leah-Marie make sure the looks are fresh, fun and flirty.

Next up, we look at the state of immunizations in Marin. The county has the highest rate of vaccine refusal in the Bay Area and one of the highest in the state. Writer Laura Hilgers looks at why this is the case and what it means for you.

We also introduce you to Mill Valley’s Lisa Kristine and her stunning images, with a sneak peek at what you can expect from the world-renowned photographer at this year’s Sausalito Art Festival. Also be sure to check out our inserted Private School Guide. This year’s edition takes a look at four families who have chosen to go private and, as usual, features more than 150 private school listings from all over the Bay Area.

Up front, we’ve got a look at a popular blogger who hails from Mill Valley, as well as information on surf films, Oktoberfest, natural beauty, books and more. We also introduce you to a local designer whose unique labor force resides at The Redwoods retirement community, along with a teacher turned hit songwriter and a filmmaking couple focused on laughs.

In Destinations, we go off the beaten path in Hawaii, keep it local in Travel Buzz and head off to Sudan for a hair-raising trip with local adventure travel writer Vassi Koutsaftis.

It’s a jam-packed issue full of lots of fun articles. And with the kids back in school, maybe you can actually find a few free moments to enjoy them.
