1. Chaiken and Capone Sample Sale at 116 New Montgomery St. (at Mission St.), Friday October 21, 11am-6pm, Free.
It's been a long week -- get a jump start on the weekend with a mid-day Chaiken & Capone shopping break. Snag these locally-designed, biz-chic duds at ridiculously low prices -- new pieces and one-of-a-kind samples alike will be available only in sizes 2-6.
The test of true fashion talent is time. San Francisco-based Julie Chaiken never felt the need to broadcast her eponymous Chaiken line in big, bold lights. Instead, she's had steady double decade success. Known for the perfect fit pant, Chaiken left fashion's sonar for a little while there. But the fashion world always loves a comeback.
