Written by Missy Black | Monday, 26 August 2013 13:09 |

Add Brindle & Blonde to your list of cool new places to namedrop. Customer-centric with a level of craft that sets them apart, salon manager Molly Savage spins it like this: a trip to Brindle & Blonde is like "the perfect trip to the hair salon."

Join Grand Rapids Art Museum Director Dana Friis-Hansen on Aug. 9 for a lively day trip to the Art Institute of Chicago. Experience a fashionable frolic and a guided group tour of the exhibit Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity, a revealing look at the role of fashion in 80 major paintings by Degas, Manet, Monet, Renoir and Seurat.

Because two locations are better than one, jewelry maven Prudence Kauffman has opened a second Dear Prudence location in the MoDiv incubator stores on the corner of Monroe and Division in Grand Rapids. Kauffman says the best thing about the spot is "energy is crazy through the roof right now. There's a constant flow and we're in the middle of this huge awakening downtown."

Pop into the itty-bitty biz spot for custom sterling pieces, monogram necklaces, phone covers and custom fingerprint necklaces. Visit the Dear Prudence Facebook page or dearprudence.com for more deets.

It's game on with a Candy Land runway show and a side of old-money accessories. Your hot Saturday night is here thanks to Runway for Charity. Formerly known as the Design 1 Fashion Event, the fashion show's new incarnation brings A.K. Rikk's, Design 1 Salon Spa, Aura Cosmetics, The Matthew Agency and Visbeen Associates together for a sweet show rooted in Candy Land lore and wonder. 

Serendipity Hair Design presents the 3rd annual spring Hair and Fashion Runway Event. This New York-runway-style show is held April 19 at Thousand Oaks Golf Club and benefits The Multiple Sclerosis Program at the Saint Mary's Hauenstein Neuroscience Center.

Pantone's color of the year is Emerald, which is your cue to buy up the shade in mass amounts. It's hailed as a lively, radiant and lush green, and if you're starting to worry on where to find it, jb and me has you covered. With a store in Holland and one in Grand Rapids, co-owner Jamie Grasman says jb and me plans to play with this color in their accessories, shoes and skinny jeans selection.

Cruise your closet for a LBD and something red because two themed parties hit Grand Rapids, and clothing is key. On Feb. 7, Cygnus (187 Monroe Ave. NW, Grand Rapids) hosts the 2nd Annual Red Party. The event partners with Valentine Vodka out of Detroit for a night of specialty cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and dancing in a sea of red.
