WEST HOLLYWOOD—Last week we gave you an exclusive inside look at The Grove's (189 The Grove Drive) new House of Harlow 1960 pop-up. This week the space will be hosting fashionable events daily starting with Wednesday's visit from the label's creative director Nicole Richie and Who What Wear's Katherine Power. From 7-9pm the ladies drop into the chic, Masha Gordon-designed boutique (located next to the Kiehl's store). Meet and greet the stylish power-duo, enjoy light bites and sips, and shop from the cool, curated stock of jewelry and accessories and newly added apparel—including exclusive vintage finds handpicked by Nicole. Be sure to RSVP here to guarantee your spot for this one.
