WILLIAMSBURG—Shoe Market and Mini Market are throwing a trunk show for eco-minded jewelry and clothing label Species by the Thousands this Friday, July 1. Patriotically christened the American Dream, the event will feature handmade and limited edition pieces, plus offer refreshments. The fun runs from 4pm to 8pm—perfect for spending your pre-holiday weekend afternoon off. [Racked Inbox]
NATIONWIDE—In what seems like cannibalization of its own programming, the Lifetime Network is putting out a casting call for another fashion-related and yet-unnamed reality competition show. Publicity-seeking designers won't have to quit their jobs for this one, as the gig is just a two-day commitment. So if you're a designer with a couple personal days to spare, head on over to Racked National for details. [Racked]
