Weekend Agenda: What To Do Outside Of Outside Lands

main
After peeping five flawless ‘fits for Outside Lands, anyone without a ticket might be a little green with envy. Luckily, this weekend is packed with so many fun fetes you might not even remember all the grooves and grub going down in Golden Gate Park. While the Outside Lands’ lineup boasts bands like Beck and Sigur Ros, the rest of S.F.’s soiree schedule includes a bash at BellJar, the chance to be styled by sartorial superstar Annabel Ly and much, much more.
BellJar’s Glam Get-Together
BellJar has always been the best boutique to unearth gorgeous little things from frocks to frills. So, we were amped when the shop opened up online and let us explore its wealth of treasures on the web. After two years, the e-retailer’s re-launched and ready to celebrate its success. And you’re all invited! The praise-worthy party promises guests cocktails, summer-sale items up 65% off, and gorgeous pics snapped by our very own photography intern Christine Ting! Plus, you’ll have a chance to scope out breathtaking baubles by While Odin Sleeps and Venus Superstar. We bet even folks with Outside Lands tickets might slip out a little early to show up to this soiree.
When: Friday, August 10, 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: BellJar, 3187 16th Street (between Valencia and Guerrero streets); 415-626-1749.
Convert And TOMS Save Your Sole Party
Do you love TOMS, but wish the oh-so-cozy-slash-charitable slip-ons had a little more fashion flair? Well, this Saturday, Convert will be teaming up with TOMS for a Style Your Sole Event. Meaning, if you stop by the East Bay outpost and purchase a pair of TOMS between 1 and 5 p.m. local artists will be on hand to make each new shoe look a little more you. We know you’ll step away with a bit more pep in your step.
When: Saturday, Aug 11, 1 to 5 p.m.
Where: Convert Shoes, 1844 Fourth Street (between Virginia Street and Hearst Avenue), Berkeley; 510-984-0142.
AG Jeans’ Back to School Shopping Event
We were shocked when we scanned our schedules only to see that August is almost halfway over. And for some of us, that means back to school. While those words might make some scowl, to others it means a chance to score styles that will make the coming semester (or fall in general) stellar. This Saturday AG Jeans is taking the guesswork out of shopping by hosting an event with Teen Vogue and Blushing Ambition blogger Annabel Ly. So, not only could you get styled by the ensemble expert, but all your purchases from the fall collection will be 15% off. Um, that’s what we call starting the school year off right!
When: Saturday August 11, 1 to 3 p.m.
Where: AG Jeans, 20 O'Farrell Street (between Powell Street and Grant Avenue); 415-398-0546.
French Fashion Tour 2012
We’ve come to terms (barely) with the fact that right now we can’t fly to Paris on a whim and sit by the Seine with a glass of wine and a fantastic Frenchman. C'est la vie! So, while we will never give up on that fantasy, for now we can experience our fill of France right here in San Francisco. From Friday August 10 until Sunday, August 13, TransAtlantic — deemed “the exclusive wholesaler of French luxury brands” — will be setting up its silver Airstream trailer and opening the doors of its mobile showroom to happy habitués. Go ahead, sneak a peek at the finest French goods from the upcoming spring and summer '13 season, we know you're curious!
When: Friday, August 10 through Sunday, August 13, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: W Hotel, 181 Third Street (on the corner of Howard Street); No phone.
