Anyone who shopped the recent Ashley Pittman jewelry sample sale likely walked away with a bag of bling and a huge smile. Very little beats a secret steal. A Certain Level, who hosted that fab affair, brings to you another delightful shopping frenzy this week. Housed again in the space between Drybar and Nosh, this pop-up sale includes clothing, shoes, and accessories by Hussein Chalayan, Black Crane, Helmut Lang, Rick Owens, Vena Cava, Marie Turnor, Alaia, and more. Fellas, don’t get upset. There’s plenty for you by Margiela, Alexander Yamaguchi, Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, Band of Outsiders, and more. Best of all is that most of these designers aren’t readily available in town, so you can get your polished paws on hard-to-find threads before everyone else. Open today through Sunday, June 10 from 11 am to 6 pm. If Ashley Pittman’s horn and gem jewels didn’t satisfy your lust for accessories, consider the weekend your best time to hit the sample sale. Gabriela Artigas’ ladylike-meets-edgy necklaces, rings, and bracelets hit the shelves Thursday evening. 4218 Oak Lawn Ave.
