SAMPLE THIS: You’ve shopped all the summer clearance sales around town until the racks were swept clean. Now it’s time to infuse your wardrobe with something you won’t find on every other body in Miami. If you’re looking for fashion that’s original and on sale, head over to Harrison Café where The Shade Post is teaming up with the café for a vintage trunk show boasting up to 50-percent off duds and two-for-one drinks. Shop and sip—we’re hoping that’s a top trend in fall ’09 as well. 2028 Harrison St #102, Hollywood; 954.920.0029
CLUB MED: This summer humidity is doing wonders for your skin. And by wonders we mean horrible, shiny, cloggy things. Sleek MedSpa wants to give you some much-needed face time tonight, when they host an evening of spa treatments, demonstrations, exclusive offers and, of course, treats and cocktails. Because nothing goes better with skin cream than vodka. 6-8 p.m. The party is invite-only, but the first five people to email firstname.lastname@example.org win entry for themselves and a guest.
ACCESSORIZE THAT: Fall is fast approaching, time to take your fruit cocktail-colored jewelry and stick it into storage until next summer. Then, load up on looks for fall at Aria Nero’s trunk show today from noon until 7 p.m. at Bloomingdale’s at The Falls. The line mixes the grace of the Victorian era (perfect for wedding accessories) with the earthy elements of the green-movement (for all you hippies out there) in the form of earrings, necklaces and bracelets. 8778 S.W. 136th St., Miami; 305.252.6300
MAKE A DAY OF IT: Take U2’s song “Beautiful Day,” throw in 30 percent off products, 15 percent off booked services, refreshments, a raffle and an info session on the latest in facial rejuvenation and you’ve got South Miami Dermatology’s Day of Beauty. Stop in from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and stock up. Then feel free to sing Ice Cube’s “Today it was a Good Day” all the way home. 6351 S.W. 72nd St., Ste 200, Miami; 305.667.5480
