SUNSET PLAZA—Our friends at Code C are throwing a party for two events (on the same night!) that look and sound amazing: On Thursday, November 19th, from 5pm to 8pm, stop by for a holiday trunk show for the Re Collection brand and an installation for Sustainable Sirens. Re Collection takes unique vintage garments and reimagines them into fresh, modern shapes that are thoroughly wearable: staples like jeans, jackets and dresses that offer a lot of bang for your buck. The collection is a perfect pairing with the Sustainable Sirens, which is actually a public service campaign created to encourage the entertainment industry to clean up its collective act by recycling and becoming more waste-conscious. They've created unique, fabulous costumes from production department junk to raise awareness and publicize the cause. Cruise by to shop, nosh and get behind a worthy cause. 8641 Sunset Blvd. (310-652-0500) [Racked Inbox]

And if you buy a pair of Wolverines, you'll get a free shoe kit. The party rocks from 7pm to 10pm; they're located at 8452 Melrose (323-944-0311) [Racked Inbox]
