INNER RICHMOND—Helpers House of Couture and native San Franciscan and fashion maven Joy Bianchi invite all vintage-loving shoppers to 2608 Fulton Street on Sunday, March 16th, from 9:30am to 4pm. If you've never been, get an eyeful here. This amazing treasure trove of vintage designer fashion is a must for mint-condition vintage clothing from the likes of Naeem Kahn, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Lanvin, Badgley Mischka, Halston and more, plus jewelry, new and used furs, handbags and accessories. While this shopping event could prove to be an expensive venture, there will be deals ranging from $10 to $99. Bonus: proceeds benefit people who are developmentally disabled. [Racked Inbox]
SAN FRANCISCO—On Tuesday, March 18, you might be feeling a little green when that alarm goes of, thanks to a few too many green beverages the night before. You can thank Benefit Cosmetics and TaskRabbit for thinking ahead: they're teaming up to deliver St. Patrick's Day-after hangover cures to some lucky San Francisco gals. If you'd like to be one of them, follow and tweet @BenefitBeauty with #LuckyBoost, along with a message about why you deserve to be rescued between 9am and noon on Tuesday. "Dedicated rescuers" will hand-deliver a (free!) hangover survival kit, including items including dry shampoo, They're Real mascara, and Fakeup hydrating concealer from Benefit, plus pain relievers and "feel good" snacks. It's a much better option than hair of the dog. [Racked Inbox]
