0 comments

 main= As much as we love basking in the sun during our Indian Summer, we have to face the facts: The cold, fog-filled months are approaching fast. So, to help get you cozzied up for the icy weather ahead, we’ve found two fashion happenings stocked with threads guaranteed to keep you nice and toasty. From a trunk show filled with luxury knits to the launch of a new Pendleton collection for guys and gals, missing out on these Thursday events will seriously give you the cold shoulder. Peep the details below and get ready to bring on the warm and fuzzies!

Souchi Trunk Show
If there’s any sartorial craving we get once the 4 p.m. chill comes breezing in, it’s for a cozy knitted sweater. And we get to wrap ourselves into Souchi’s luxury knitted cardigans, capes, and ponchos at this Thursday’s standout shindig. Our go-to Piedmont boutique McMullen is hosting the bash, and will have the woven pieces at the ready. Did we mention designer Suzi Johnson will be there to share the deets on the luxe knits? And once you’ve claimed your new duds, feel free to gobble up some mini pies whipped up by Pietisserie. Um, we’re so ready to spoil ourselves at this must-hit party. You, too? Jot down the deets below and go to town on the fashion delights!
When: Thursday, October 11, 1 to 7 p.m.
Where: McMullen Boutique, 1235 Grand Avenue (near Fairview Avenue), Oakland; 510-658-6906.

Pendleton Portland Collection Launch Party
On a foggy day, we could practically live in our rustic-cool Pendleton blankets, but that wouldn’t exactly be a functional way to stay warm and stylish. Instead, we can cozy our way into the line’s second Portland Collection that will be available at Seedstore this Thursday! The Inner Richmond shop will be hosting a soiree celebrating the line’s second collection, and trust us folks, it’s a follow up compilation of comfy wares worth rejoicing over. The print-tastic and heavy-knitted pieces will have staying warm look oh-so-cool. At the launch party, attendees will get first pick of the collection, get to sip refreshing cocktails, and walk away with some rad giveaways. Head to the shop and grab the ultra-soft garb … you’ll be thanking us once the Indian Summer starts to fade.
When: Thursday, October 11, 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Seedstore, 212 Clement Street (between 3rd and 4th avenues); 415-386-1600.
