Inside every fashionista lurks a recessionista. Let this Thursday be the day you become both bargain hunter and boutique buff when Shop Miami sets up at the Design Districts Moore Building (4040 NE Second Ave., Miami).
The four-hour New York-style sample sale features 40 local designers and comes complete with bargains, booze, and beauty treatments courtesy of Lace Nail Lab. From 7 to 11 p.m., stock up on knits from KRELwear, eco-friendly fashions from Art of Shade, funky favorites by Gold Saturn, bikinis by Amaya Swimwear, and accessories by MAR Jewelry Collection. Then, because shopping and stiff drinks go together like handbags and shoes, celebrate those slashed prices with libations from 42 Below and Ménage à Trois Wine.
Dudes, dont despair there are duds for you too. Or, girls, if you and your beau prefer to pass up the madness, snag the $40 VIP tickets ($30 in advance) and score your goodies (and a gift bag) at the one-hour pre-sale beginning at 6 p.m. Cash only. Regular tickets cost $20 at the door, $10 in advance.
