WEST 3RD STREET— Trina Turk is offloading her vintage closet and making it available for purchase at her boutique on West 3rd Street. Prices range from $48-$248 and it's all "freshly dry cleaned," which is a bit of a luxury when shopping vintage. [RackedWire]

NORTH HOLLYWOOD— What happened to a good ol' fashioned bake sale? Not at private Harvard-Westlake. The pricey school is going big-time with its "Fashion for Action" show Friday, April 11 at 8pm. From the Los Angeles Times: "Gossip Girl meets The O.C. on a runway at this benefit for the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Initiative for HIV/AIDS, featuring a fashion show and boutique of clothing donated by Marc Jacobs, Elie Tahari, Seven Jeans and others." Tickets are $15 at the door or at www.hw.com/boxoffice. [LAT]

VENICE— In Venice, Curbed reports that Yo! Venice is not happy about some large-scale ads from Sketchers, Toyota and others on the boardwalk. From Curbed: "The bloggers aren't sure how long the suckers have been up there. 'Has corporate advertising been going on along the boardwalk for a while and I just never noticed?' Still, they're grumpy about those ads!" [Curbed]
