SILVER LAKE—We took you inside Sunset Junction's hippest new clothier LACAUSA (4015 Sunset Boulevard) last week, but the locally-made brand holds it's official celebration for the opening of their first-ever storefront this Thursday evening. Co-hosted by The Unique Space's Sonja Rasula, the 7-10pm soiree includes artful bites by Soo_n Food, bevvies from Union Wine Company, and a kickass playlist courtesy of Babes Abroad. Since we expect the slim space to be filled with the stylish set, do the right thing and let 'em know you're coming with an RSVP to email@example.com.
HOLLYWOOD—Tis the season for ultra cool sunnies, but not to fear if you haven't found your perfectly face-fitting frames just yet. The W Hotel (6250 Hollywood Boulevard) is hosting a preview for Haze Collection, a brand that has a knack for updating classic styles like wayfarers and aviators with a contemporary spin. The event takes place this Thursday from 5-8pm and treats guests to not only complimentary champagne and music by deejays AJ English and Avon Lurks, but a 20% discount on any pair of shades from the collection. All RSVPs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECHO PARK—With a regular roster of girlie goodies, Myrtle (2213 Sunset Boulevard) is always a great destination for a good ol' fashion lady date. This Friday, the sweet boutique really ups the ante with a Ladies Night Pop-up that includes naughty accessories like badass patches from both Tuesday Bassen and Rosehound Apparel, kooky nail decals from Sara M. Lyons ("Chronic Cutie" and "Cute & Sleazy" are among popular packs) and sassy pins from Big Bud Press. Edgy gals are bound to get a kick out of this 5-8pm event, which wouldn't be complete without cocktails.
