It breaks my heart to tell you this, but there won’t be a holiday THREAD show this year. If you missed out on the latest fall indie shopping party in October, well, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
THREAD is the mighty traveling show that features apparel, jewelry, home décor and gifts from local independent designers, stopping in San Diego two to three times per year. Although we must wait ‘til 2012 to feast our eyes on the next official indie fest, the good people behind THREAD are treating us to a holiday pop-up show with party-ready looks for ourselves and unique gifts for our loved ones. I know it’s hard to accept, but the holiday season is officially upon us, and it’s time to prepare in the best way we know how: a fashion-fueled fete.
THREAD Show’s Holiday Soiree is taking place at Drybar on Tuesday, November 15th from 6 to 9pm. Drybar, San Diego’s go-to salon for $35 blowouts, will be transformed into a swanky boutique, featuring pop-up displays from THREAD’s top indie designers, including Moderne, Concepcion, Leoluca Handbags and Love Tatum.
They say it’s better to give than to receive, and that’s cute and all, but it’s also pretty amazing to treat yourself to a must-have party dress that will get you through the holiday season in style. After all, you have to look fabulous when presenting your gifts to all your loved ones. In comes Moderne, a leading online shopping resource that offers sultry and sweet party dresses by Naven, Charlie Jade, Sky and Mink Pink, as well as trendy everyday looks by Wildfox Couture, Chip and Pepper Denim and Alternative Apparel. During the Holiday Soiree, Moderne will feature items on sale from 30-70% off. (pictured left: Naven)
And now for your friends and family; Leoluca Handbags are sleek, edgy and locally designed by two California girls. A new Leoluca clutch, party purse or oversized bag will make the perfect gift for your stylish best friend. (pictured below) For your mom and sisters, trust a stunning jewelry design by Love Tatum, which is based locally in La Jolla. Made with 24kt gold, urban chains, and vibrant stones, Love Tatum earrings, necklaces, and cuff bracelets are sure to please every style-conscious woman in your life. (pictured main)
As a bonus, during the soiree Drybar will offer their signature blowouts enhanced with L’Oreal shots for only $25. And of course, no party is complete without spirits. The Holiday Soiree will treat guests to hosted wine tasting by 12 Signs and light appetizers by Jimbo’s.
