Elizabeth Street Cosmetics Trunk Show
Whether your Friday evening plans include dinner and movie or TiVo, we think you'll love the beauty bonanza happening at Rare Device — so pencil this in. Elizabeth Street Cosmetics is teaming up with L'Aromatica Perfume for a trunk show that's sure to leave you looking (and smelling) nothing short of stunning.

I Do! A Curated Shopping Event
After DIY-ing the perfect headband for a summer wedding we may have gotten a teensy-tiny bit obsessed with bride-centric accessories. And if you’re getting hitched or just in love with all things old, new, borrowed, and blue — we propose you stop by I Do! A Curated Shopping Event. Going down Saturday and Sunday, you and your pals can walk down an aisle of style and peep the coolest collections from local artisans and designers. Oh, and did we mention it’s free?

Where: Firehouse 8, 1648 Pacific Avenue (at Van Ness Avenue); 415-265-0552.
Gallery Of Jewels Summer Of Love Event
We weren’t kidding when we said we had bridal-themed fetes on the mind! And here’s another to add to our must-hit list. Gallery of Jewels is celebrating the “summer of love” with an enticing engagement-ring extravaganza. A bevy of 15 local jewelry designers (a few are R29 faves) will be displaying a full range of dazzling bling for the ten-day-long event, but the kick-off party goes down tonight. Bubbles and bites galore! So, whether you’re all for modern subtle styles or into the shinier sets, this event has something for all tastes alike. Also, the first 50 customers to show up get goodies. Um, yes!
