After hearing about my plan for making friends, Houston’s own CultureMap reached out to me about their upcoming event Fashion on Sale. It seemed like a great friend date!
From CultureMap: “It’s set to be the city’s largest collection of women’s boutique retailers in one space offering end-‐of-‐season clothing and accessories at can’t-‐beat prices. Some of the 30+ presenting retailers to date include: 7 For All Mankind, a bientot, Alexandra Knight Handbags, Atrium, Azur West Salon, Carrie Ann, Ceron Salon, Cheeky Vintage, Coquette, David Peck Collection, Edward Sanchez Cosmetics, Elaine Turner, Hello Lucky, J Silver, Korcula, Lot 8, Mary Nichols Handbags, One Green Street, Pomp and Circumstance, Rent the Runway, Squared Away, The Blues Jean Bar, The Do Bar, Tootsies, Vintage Contessa and Woody’s Furs.”
Uh, you had me at 7 for All Mankind.
There are also a bunch of events all weekend; I love me some beauty demonstrations, but I’m also really excited for the “cocktails and light bites.” I mean, I love lip gloss, but I really love party food. But apparently there will also be faux lashes for everyone, and that might actually excite me more than wine and micro-sliders.
It’s going on this weekend, January 13-15, and you can select your tickets based on how many events you’d like to attend: VIP tickets for $75, Early Entry for $40, or one day General Admission for $20. There’s also a “Man Cave” wrist band; for $12, you can drag a guy (or really any non-shopping enthusiast) along and then let him feast on beer and wings while you buy cute stuff. I’ll be there throughout the weekend, so if you do plan to attend, leave a comment or shoot me a Facebook message so we can be sure to say hello!
And if you’re interested in attending and haven’t bought tickets yet, I have two general admission tickets to give away. (So you can perhaps invite that girl you’ve had your eye on as a potential friend! See also: “Come up with good date ideas.”) To win the tickets, just leave a comment below telling me what you prefer: cocktails and party food, trying on beauty products, or trying on clothes?
I’ll pick a winner at random tomorrow (Thursday, Jan. 12) at noon CST.
