COSTA MESA/SOUTH COAST PLAZA—There really is a lot going on at South Coast Plaza this weekend. On Saturday, Nicole Richie graces the SCP Nordstrom to promote her new Winter Kate line. The event starts at 12:30; a portion of the sales will be donated to the Richie Madden Children’s Foundation, an organization that advocates on behalf of children in need. Then you can dash on over to Sephora to meet Tarina Tarantino, and buy some of her sparkly new cosmetics, get a makeover, and take home an autographed book (with purchase). The event is from 1pm to 4pm. [Racked Inbox]
