CANOGA PARK—Who doesn't desire a little dazzle as a sweet holiday gift? Shop sparkly baubles this Thursday when LA jewelry brand Sydney Evan stops by Neiman Marcus at Westfield Topanga (6550 Topanga Canyon Road) for a trunk show. Designer Rosanne Karmes will be present for the 10am-5pm event, where you can snag signature SE pieces like 14 karat and diamond necklaces decorated with cutesy words ("taken" or "omg" among them) or charms (cupcakes and butterflies for example) and colorful, beaded bangles.
MAR VISTA—"Cabin Fever" will actually be a good thing in the context of Mar Vista Art Department's (12513 Venice Boulevard) holiday party this Thursday. The rad boutique/studio is inviting guests over from 7pm-12am to partake in activities you might enjoy in a cozy cabin, like marshmallow toasting and heart warming cocktail sipping. And what true LA bash would be complete without a photobooth? $10 tickets for the seasonal soiree can be purchased here.
