When your week begins with a Hello Kitty jewelry workshop and ends with Halloween, the obvious way to get over the hump is by eating cupcakes with Tarina Tarantino. She threw a great, big sparkly party at her store on Melrose last night, complete with a DJ, homemade cupcakes, and costumed helpers. She has some of the most exotic and beautiful Halloweenish accessories we've ever seen, like the black wings in the window display.
Even if you missed the party, you can still get in on the action: Today and tomorrow, drop by and take 25% off merchandise in the store.
