There’s no better way to spend your Sunday morning than sipping on champagne, getting an autographed copy of first-time author Kimberly Lin‘s book Recession Proof, checking out the latest in skincare at January Labs Skin Essentials, enjoying an art show by Vans, and scoping out the latest apparel at PURRE. Fashion blogger Rachel Nguyen from ThatsChic.net will be there to co-host the event with the Newport Fun Book Club for Ladies. And make sure you find Shirley from Audrey Magazine and tell her hi! Take a photo with her and you may see yourself in Audrey!

Where: Purre, 2937 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, CA 92626
