Sarah Tripp started Sassy Red Lipstick in 2013 to express her love of fashion. Right from the beginning, she wanted SRL to be a place where she could express her sense of style while also showing girls that they don’t have to be a size 2 to be chic. She is all about loving yourself, body positivity, and of course, honoring your curves. She wants every girl to know that being fashionable is just as much about confidence as it is about style.

Any view with the Golden Gate Bridge, but particularly the one from Kirby Cove.



The Marina, Cow Hollow and Pacific Heights areas are my favorite local neighborhoods to explore! So many picturesque home, “instagrammable” coffee shops, and a real feel of San Francisco.

We love grabbing ice cream at BiRite and then walking across the street to Dolores Park! It has a fantastic view of the city and the perfect place to plop down on the grass on a warm day.
