Didn't get an invitation to the anniversary party for Ikram Goldman's celebrated boutique this weekend? Don't worry, there are other things to keep you busy.

A physical version of Crate & Barrel's shop-within-a-shop dedicated to the fantastically successful Finnish design brand Marimekko opens today at the North and Clybourn store. Find textiles, accessories, items for bed, bath, kitchen, and dining, and more.

On Friday from noon to 6 PM, Florodora (330 S. Dearborn) continues its tradition of Friday trunk shows by featuring Nougat London, a brand known for quality fabrics, eye-catching prints, and romantic details. In addition to clothes, the event will feature some items from the line that the store doesn't normally carry.

Friday night, Cerato (3451 N. Southport) celebrates one year in business with a party from 6 to 9 PM. Street-style photographer Tres Awesome will snap attendees (sensing a trend in fashion parties here), who'll have a chance to win a $100 gift certificate either by making a purchase or by wearing something by a local designer.

Saturday, Helen Tsatsos of Rock Candy by Helen will be at the Shop of the Art Institute, 111 S. Michigan, from noon to 4 PM to showcase her line of repurposed jewelry and art pendants.
