Thursday Night Twofer: Catch An Art And Fashion Event In The East Bay

Feeling slightly panicked at the thought of stocking up on spring duds? Well, thankfully Oakland gem McMullen is here to assist. Not only does the hip East Bay boutique stash super-cool wares by R29 faves like Clare Vivier, Current/Elliott, and Rachel Comey, but this Thursday it's ringing in the new season with a can’t-be-missed trunk show.
The Piedmont retail haven is showcasing Derek Lam's diffusion line 10 Crosby's spring '12 collection. The event will boast the bold, streamlined threads (um, we need that leather-sleeved jacket), cupcakes, and cocktails — and Derek’s sister and sales director, Tracy Lee, is slated to make an appearance. Guests will get insider musings on the line while nibbling on tasty treats. We’re there!
When: Thursday, March 29, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: McMullen, 1235 Grand Avenue (between Sunnyside and Fairview Avenues); 510-658-6906.
And since you’ll already be across the bridge, why not make your East Bay trip a twofer? Swing by West Elm in Emeryville for Etsy artist Callie Thompson’s solo show. She's displaying her dazzling prints at the store for a month, and you can come sip and celebrate at the opening reception. It’s sure to be a good one. Food, fashion, and art — looks like Thursday is shaping up to be a triple threat.
When: Thursday, March 29, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: West Elm, 5602 Bay Street (corner of Shellmound Street), Emeryville; 510-655-1367.
