So, for those of you who haven't been to an event like this, it's a shopping event that promotes and showcases the work of emerging artists and designers, as well as vendors with an interesting perspective (such as my own favorite Future:Standard - who is confirmed to be there, yay!). This particular show will be featuring fall/winter collections and the Thread spokesperson, Danielle Gano described it as, "an opportunity [for locals] to meet the designers face-to-face, feed the local economy, be kind to the environment and ensure the gifts they give are locally-made and ethically produced."
In addition to the shopping, there's going to be live music, a pop-up local art gallery, Style Lounge, Nail Bar, Live Style Series, THREAD Well Lounge, live screen printing and giveaways all day.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, Kathryn and I will both be attending, and would love to meet up with you! Entrance to the event costs $10 at the door, but if you RSVP at least 24 hours in advance of the event, you can get a discounted admission of $5. And even better, we've been given six free passes to give away, so, the first six readers to email me (carol.prettythings [at] gmail.com) will get in to the event, completely free of charge.
I'll be posting some of the details of the meet-up here on the blog, prior to the event, but if you let me know you're planning to come, I'll be sure to send you updates on details regarding times, locations, etc, directly.
So, to sum it all up, you're invited to join myself and Kathryn for a shopping get-together/outing!

And now, my OOTD. I admit it. This isn't what I'm wearing today. It's not even what I wore yesterday, or the day before that. This is an outfit I wore maybe...two, three weeks ago? But between a hectic work schedule, and an even busier home life (not to mention the mental/emotional toll of our little blogosphere's recent drama), I've been woefully lax about getting photos of my OOTDs. So here's one from the archives. Yes, I wear this skirt way too much. No, I don't really regret it. Except that...well, on the blog, it looks like it's all I ever wear.
Watch: Michael Kors Crystal Chonograph (now on sale!)
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
