OAKLAND— If you haven't checked out Maribel in Oakland yet, tomorrow would be a great Friday to do so. The consignment shop will be hosting a Pamela Love trunk show from 6 to 9pm. First pick out a unique vintage look, and then pair some (Love)ly jewels to go with it! [Refinery 29]
SOMA— Have a weakness for fierce fashion shows in luxury hotels (who doesn't)? Get yourself a ticket to the 9th Annual Fashion on the Square—August 18 at 5pm—before it's sold out. (VIP front row seats are gone!) The show takes place at the InterContinental Hotel on Howard Street and features couture designer Colleen Quen, who was a guest judge on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 9. Other designers like B Michael will also have looks going down the runway, and the Sephora Beauty Bar will be offering complimentary makeup services all night. Not to be missed!
