The best thing about stores like Forever 21 -- besides the fact that you can avoid a Carrie Bradshaw-size tsunami of debt -- is that by the time your trendy clothes become faux pas, theyre already torn or faded. A resourceful few might take these trashy threads and transform them into a shabby-chic throw pillow; most of us let our tattered rags rot, turning closets into a moths all-you-can-eat buffet. But when it comes to adorning your home rather than your body, what are you supposed to do with a busted armoire? Find out when you surround yourself in Thonet rather than Tar-jay at the Wolfsonian Museums Wolf Pack Design Night.
Tonight you can enlighten yourself with a casual talk about function and art while munching out and sipping cocktails courtesy of Roth Vodka at Lincoln Roads très chicDesign Within Reach. Next, roam over to Finlands Marimekko (responsible for the adorableness that is Anthropologie) and learn why the store is to textiles what Ikea is to furniture. Finally, sate your wolf-size hunger with a three-course meal at Miss Yip. Call 305-535-2631 or visit www.wolfsonian.org to RSVP.
