HOLLYWOOD—Ladies, it's finally here. Bikini season has arrived ready or not so why not say "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em," with an event celebrating the scantily-clad season in style. Beach lifestyle brand Amuse Society welcomes summer with an event this Sunday at the Roosevelt Hotel's Tropicana Pool (7000 Hollywood Blvd) from 12-6pm. Party people will sip cocktails in the sun while checking out a debut of the label's Fall 2015 collection, enjoying tunes from DJ Alix Brown and Brook Power, and grabbing must-have summertime swag from Sun Bum and RESQWATER (perfect for the rough Monday morning after!). RSVP here to secure your sunny spot.
BEVERLY HILLS—For further bikini madness, visit the Beverly Hills Bikini Shop (245 S Beverly Dr) this Saturday from 12-4pm for a trunk show from flirty brand Lolli and shop all their—ahem—cheeky newest styles. Grab a sexy suit for yourself, or a sweet babykini for your wee one.
VENICE—Isn't it about time you edited your undies drawer? MeUndies, maker of insanely comfortable men's and women's underthings and socks, is here to help you with that daunting task. This Saturday stop by the brand's pop-up (1627 Abbot Kinney Blvd) from 10am-7pm and exchange a never-wearing-these-again pair (shy gals don't fear, you're just popping them into a drop box!) for a spanking new pair. Additional donations will earn you 20% off an in-store purchase. And all your old unmentionables are going to a good cause, USAgain, which saves them from taking up space landfills and gets them recycled into a new life.
