Rebecca Taylor is one of my favorite designers, so if my hair appointment gets done early Saturday, I'm going to try and stop by Serendipity Boutique on H Street (5362, next to Selland's Market) and check out the store's fall trunk show.
Owner Barbara Lym is sure to have picked the cream of the crop for next season. I'm particularly interested in both dresses and jackets - two of Rebecca's specialities.
And, if you can make it, there also will be a Gorjana jewelry show.
While you're browsing, check out the Chilewich and Haley Corina (pictured) handbag collections. Sandy Chilewich is a New York designer who came up with a signature textile, woven vinyl fabric that she uses to create totes, zips and travel accessories. They're simple, but boy, will one of these bags take you places!
Haley Anthonisen just graduated from Rio Americano High School and will attend the University of Redlands, where she will continue to make her one-of-a-kind bags.
The Haley Corina collection began two years ago, when Haley's father cleaned out his closet and gave her his "I-don't-want-these-anymore" ties. She began sewing the ties together to create unique handbags
They sell for $125 each, and Haley donates a portion of the sales to the nonprofit Women Empowerment of Sacramento, which provides support and assistance to homeless women looking to get back on their feet.
The boutique is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. See you there!
