Coming down from the Fashion Week high? Not to worry.

From minimalist rings to big beaded necklaces, these new baubles will have you excited for warm weather.

Since the winter weather certainly hasn’t let up, stocking up on some new outerwear isn't the craziest idea we've ever heard. Luckily, Rizik’s is hosting a fur and outerwear event this week, offering from 40% to 80% off furs, wool coats, raincoats, jackets, and more.
Now through Saturday, February 22. Rizik’s, 1100 Connecticut Avenue NW; 202-223-4050.

When an event's catchphrase is “Shop like a diva, save like a boss,” you know it's going to be good. On Saturday, join Washington City Paper and The Yards DC for Fashion for a Fraction, a warehouse boutique sale. Local boutiques and brands including duo, Twisted Aristocrat, and Treasury will be in attendance. Timed-entry tickets let you shop at different intervals throughout the day, so head there early if you're really in the mood to buy.
Saturday, February 22, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ideaspace, 300 Tingey Street SE; no phone. Purchase tickets here.
