WEST HOLLYWOOD—NYC-based brand AYR made a name for itself with its beloved booty-enhancing denim styles, but now the company has evolved to include even more of the effortless, flattering types of garments so many women love to wear. Check out some of their newest goods this Thursday when Nordstrom at The Grove (189 The Grove Drive) offers a presentation of AYR's Fall 2015 line, highlighted by a visit from Co-Founder Jac Cameron and Brand Marketing Manager Max Bonbrest. From 5-7pm, guests can snack and sip while observing the latest looks, then score your own styling session before selecting their new gear. To save yourself a spot, call 323-930-2230.
