Drinking and shopping. Two activities that, generally speaking, don’t mix well. The last time you went shopping after a martini lunch, you blew the nest egg on a Chanel frock. You’re still waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it.
It’s a different story at A Love Bazaar, the sample sale to end all sample sales this Saturday at Milk, the Haight’s classically cool DJ bar.
Libations and tunes flow as wares from Annies, Joe Pye, Riley James, Behind the Post Office, and Iris go for a fraction of retail. You’ll find denim from Citizens of Humanity and Chip & Pepper; adorable tops and skirts from Splendid and Ella Moss; flirty heels from Hollywould; standbys like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, and Cosabella; and goodies from emerging local designers.
Most exciting of all? The prices are low enough that you won’t be able to do too much damage even after a few drinks. So go crazy.
Maybe you’ll even find a pair of shoes to go with that Chanel dress.
A Love Bazaar, at Milk, 1840 Haight Street, at Stanyan Street. September 11, 3 p.m.-8 p.m. For questions, e-mail email@example.com.
