Today the Chicago-based online luxury handbag and footwear consignment store Bag Ambition offers the chance to check out its trove of gently used designer accessories in person at the Diversey Yacht Club, 2601 N. Cannon Drive, from 2 to 8 PM.

Also today, Anne Novotny holds a closing party for her Pilsen boutique, Workshop, from 7 to 11 PM. The editors of Fine Line Magazine will also be giving out copies. It's at 818 W. 18th.

It's Glamorama time again. This year the Macy's extravaganza features fall designs from Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Sonia Rykiel, plus Cee Lo Green and Far East Movement perform. Tickets, which go from $50 to $1,000, benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. It's Friday at 8 PM at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State.

Another Vintage Heaven sale happens this weekend, this one titled "Retro Rocks." It's Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 PM at Heaven Gallery, 1550 N. Milwaukee.

Dose Market returns to the River East Art Center, 435 E. Illinois, on Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM. Fashionable vendors include Bodkin (a new eco-clothing line co-created by Heiji Choy Black, owner of much-missed boutique Hejfina), Saffron Vintage, local women's clothing line C/FAN, and many others. Tickets are $10 at the door, $8 in advance.
