The Best of What’s Going on This Week: Pre-Holiday Fun

To say there are a lot of awesome events going on this week is putting it lightly. (This whole month is actually nothing but events, family visits, and holidays for me.) Here are some of my favorite, and in my opinion, the most exciting events going on during this upcoming week:

The Hayden Harnett sample sale started this morning, but is also going on online!

Shop the online sale here.

Along with the Patrick Demarchelier book signing tonight, there is also a shopping party at the ROGAN Bowery store hosted by Liz from White Lightning:

If you’re single, and looking for someone to kiss under the mistletoe this holiday season, tomorrow night’s Brooklyn Holiday Meatup at the Bell House would be a good place to look:

Tickets are available for $10 here.

The Brooklyn Flea’s Gifted Holiday market is ongoing all month in Manhattan. Celebrate their opening, and drink free beer from 6-9pm Wednesday at the Gifted Shopping Party:

On Thursday, Brooklyn boutique ALTER is hosting a Jeffrey Campbell Trunk Show, with shoe giveaways and champagne:

Sadly not in NYC, but if you’re in Dallas Texas on Thursday, and want to meet Jane and Judy Aldridge from Sea of Shoes and Atlantis Home this event if definitely worth stopping by. It’s sponsored by GUESS and BAZAAR, and supports a children’s medical fund. Shop, support a good cause, and meet some awesome bloggers all in one place!

Tomorrow is the last day to RSVP. More info here.

If you thought the holiday craft fair bonanza of this past weekend was over, you’re wrong:

Join Brooklyn Based and Third Ward for their Handmade Holiday Craft Fair Saturday afternoon at 3rd ward in Bushwick.

195 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY RSVP and find out more info here.

And check out the Hearts and Crafts Affair on Sunday at Cafe Grumpy in Greenpoint:

View the event’s facebook page here.

If you’re doing some holiday shopping for your loved ones (or yourself) at Urban Outfitters, you might as well save money:

And finally, while not technically this week this is worth noting:
Next Tuesday, The Outnet is having a Balmain pop up sale.

Definitely worth saving your pennies for!

Holiday Sample Sales

Earlier today, I attended the Rodarte sample sale. Unfortunately, I came home empty handed. The knits were priced well over my budget, and the studded leather gloves I’d been lusting over were nowhere to be found (nor were the studded Louboutins). It was amazing to see and touch pieces in person, but until the day I can afford a hand knit cardigan, I’ll be saving all my Rodarte money for the Target collab. Speaking of, the lookbook just went live at The Cut.

Luckily there are plenty of other upcoming sales if you have money to burn, or are itching for a new holiday dress and can’t wait until the 20th for the Target release:

Going on Now:
The l.a.m.b handbag sale is now extended until Saturday, with some items 50% off the sample sale price. New stock is said to be arriving today.
