BEVERLY HILLS—From authoring a style text to turning it out as a red carpet regular, Nicky Hilton has secured her position as a fashion influencer. Now she joins one of her favorite labels, Linea Pelle, in designing a capsule collection of chic-but-functional handbags. With classic shapes (oversize clutch, crossbody canteen, satchel) and timeless colors/patterns (black, bone, leopard), the collab contains mid-price point (mostly between $175-$400) pieces every gal wants in her wardrobe. Get your first in-person look at the full collection when Nicky stops by her Aunt Kyle's (from RHOBH, duh) Bev Hills boutique Kyle by Alene Too (9647 Brighton Way) this Thursday for a trunk show from 4-6pm. In addition to getting to meet Nicky, guests can enjoy 10% off sales throughout the store (excluding jewelry). An RSVP is required and you can make yours by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
CANOGA PARK—Bright Pink is at it again with another fashionable event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Now the early detection-focused organization teams up with Kate Hudson's mega-popular activewear brand Fabletics for an evening of shopping for a good cause at the online retailer's new brick-and-mortar at The Village at Westfield Topanga (6316 Topanga Canyon Boulevard). This Thursday from 7-9pm, the boutique not only knocks 10% off all purchases, but will be donating 30% of net proceeds to the non-profit. Don't forget to RSVP to email@example.com to join in on this beneficial night of retail therapy. RSVP's are required and limited to the first 200—but guests are not guaranteed admission if capacity is reached. Check in begins at 5pm.
