BEVERLY HILLS—There is an exhausting amount of sample sale action taking place this weekend, but only one (that we know of) is for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds from the Animal Advocates Alliance sample sale will benefit animal rescues; there is also a $10 door fee that goes towards the organization. Participating brands include LNA, Alexis Hudson and Nola Singer. You might pick up more than a new shirt or shoes: dogs will be available on-site for adoption. [Racked Inbox]
BEVERLY GROVE—The time of holiday pop-up shops is upon us. Tomorrow brings the opening of Simply Vintageous, which bills itself as "a holiday pop-up shop unlike any other." The stock here is a mix of vintage and new clothes and accessories procured over the years by owner/screenwriter Beth LaMure. The party is from 5 to 9pm at 8270 Melrose Ave; wine and snacks will be served. [Racked Inbox]
