Last week I mistakenly included Fix Boutique's 10-Day Forecast in that week's events; actually it starts today. To repeat: Get 20 percent off different summer items each day and cocktails during happy hour. Today the special is on florals and plaid, tomorrow stock up on rompers, jumpsuits, and men's polos. The rest of the week and the weekend: spring shoes and sandals, men's tees, and shorts and skirts.

Macy's is holding a "Girls' Weekend Out" from Thursday through Sunday in conjunction with the opening of Sex and the City 2. The first 50 customers who make a $100 purchase on Thursday at the State Street store will get passes to an advance screening. Other goodies include a free subscription to Lucky with a $60 shoe purchase and a two-week membership to Bally Total Fitness with a swimwear purchase. Go to for more info and to enter a drawing for a trip to Morocco.

On Friday and Saturday the Bottomless Closet is holding a sale on donated, gently used professional clothing and accessories to reduce inventory. It's from 11 to 7 on Friday and 10 to 2 on Saturday at 435 N. LaSalle on the lower level.

On Friday from 4 to 9 and Saturday from 10 to 3, jeweler Ellie Thompson hosts a trunk show of one-of-a-kind scarves with Pranita Jain at her gallery, 8 S. Michigan. Indian treats and tea will be served. RSVP to 312-263-2264 or

Also on Friday, the very busy Lara Miller will be at Florodora from 12 to 6 for a spring trunk show.

Fashion designers get a shot at their 15 minutes of fame at a casting call for Bravo's The Fashion Show on Saturday. It's from 10 to 5 at Columbia College's Conway Building, 1104 S. Wabash.

On Saturday, Sara Bradstreet of Broad Street, who makes new jewelry out of vintage pieces, will breathe new life into your old jewelry. Bring something to Grasshopper 510 from 11 to 4; she'll come up with a design and finish it up at her studio if you like.
