Feeling the summer slump? Treat yourself — and help preserve the environment — with a little bling. Bauble queen Melissa Joy Manning is known for her oh-so-gorgeous eco-friendly jewelry, and she's holding a trunk show to show off her new pieces. Bucktown boutique Robin Richman will be playing host to the soirée, where you can check out the sustainable bracelets, necklaces, and earrings — they're all made with recycled metals and organic stones. And, of course, they'll be passing around cocktails — it's a party, after all! When: Thursday, July 19, from 4 to 7 p.m.
Where: Robin Richman, 2108 North Damen Avenue (between Charleston Street and Dickens avenue); 773-278-6150.
