FASHION DISTRICT—Now that it's becoming less and less tricky to find workout wear that's as chic as your fave date-night ensemble (thanks to brands like Electric and Rose, Splits59, and Koral) but your equipment, that's another story—or is it? Best U Studio has designed a body-toning device that you won't need to shove under your bed when guests come over. In fact, they might mistake it for a piece of modern art. Althouse (861 S Main Street) owner—and fitness devotee—Jennifer Althouse is showcasing the pretty new pieces with an event Tuesday. The fashion forward boutique will be offering drinks, discounts, and yes, a workout demo from 10am to 2pm.
MELROSE—The Brave Collection's designer—and Forbes 30 Under 30 nominee—Jessica Hendricks Yee stops by indie label filled boutique Tenoversix (8425 Melrose Avenue) this Thursday for the launch of her line's latest collection. The brand's signature woven bracelets are handmade in Cambodia utilizing the handiwork of local women, who are given free, fair, and safe working conditions. 10% of proceeds also goes to organizations battling human trafficking in the area. Plenty of under $100 pieces will be on hand for the 5pm to 7pm event. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to get a jump on Mother's Day shopping.
