SOHO—In honor of imminently warming weather, Birchbox is hosting a summer kickoff event in their Soho store, where there'll be makeup and hair touch-ups courtesy of Cynthia Rowley Beauty and Parlor, as well as summer accessories by Chloe + Isabel. Stop by this Thursday between 6pm and 8pm—but don't forget to RSVP first here.
MEATPACKING—Tomorrow from 5pm to 7pm at Intermix's Meatpacking location, raise a glass to "Noted Fashion Photographer" (sorry) Nigel Barker and his new bestseller, Models of Influence. While you're there, sip champagne, munch on light bites and shop the store's summer merchandise—10% of proceeds will go to UN Women's HeForShe organization. Be sure to RSVP to email@example.com.
