EL SEGUNDO—South Bay's cool new shopping center The Point (830 S Sepulveda Boulevard) seems to keep getting better and better. It recently welcomed chic basics brand Madewell and activewear label Prana. This Thursday the mall tacks another in-demand retailer to its ever-growing list as it opens a boutique for bikini brand San Lorenzo. The sexy swimwear line, which is based in Hawaii, celebrates their first LA brick-and-mortar with a luau from 7-10pm. Say hello and scope out the suits while you enjoy cocktails and nibbles, plus live music. Limited space is available so RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend.
EAST HOLLYWOOD—If your bra's tag boasts a letter D-K, then you better know about busty gal godsend Jenette Bras (4308 Melrose Avenue). Christina Henricks bodied babes (plus anyone with a plentiful rack) should scoot over to the shop's holiday party this Thursday, when vintage-inspired makeup brand Besame will also be making a pop-up appearance. During the 7:30-9:30pm event, get one of the store's signature custom fittings and shop for some sassy holiday lingerie (it's the gift that keeps on giving) plus learn tricks of the trade from the cosmetics brand's professionals, who will be offering tutorials. There will also be special discounts and a limited amount of gifts with purchase, and like at any decent seasonal soiree, the champagne will be flowing. RSVP to email@example.com.
