Universal Standard Trunk Show
Founders Polina Veksler and Alexandra Waldman are making clothing for the 67 percent. That is to say: the size-inclusive brand has a snazzy, fashion-forward collection for women ranging in sizes from 10 to 28. Huzzah! The fashion industry, slowly but surely, is starting to catch on: women of all shapes and curvaceousness want to dress well. Universal Standard, based in both Seattle and NYC, are leaders on that front and will host a trunk of their line at Sole Repair Shop on Capitol Hill from 1–7:30pm. If you miss it, they've just opened a showroom in Redmond that houses their full collection. This event also does double duty: Veksler and Waldman are also hosting a model search; if chosen, Universal Standard will fly you to New York for a photoshoot.

MOHAI Fashion Lecture: Style and Spectacle in Seattle
If you think the Museum of History and Industry, a notable storehouse of regional knowledge of Seattle's past, may not seem like the most fitting place to talk street style and trends, then you'd be oh so wrong. While our city is seemingly uninterested in fashion—ahem, Birkenstocks with socks and highbrow outdoor wear can be seen on celebrities nowadays—Clara Berg, MOHAI's clothing and textiles specialist, will delve into what Seattle's style really looks like. Admission is $15.

Health and Wellness Workshop at Sweetgrass Food Co.
Are you taking your vitamins and minerals? Or what about those antioxidant-rich superfoods—if they could they'd wear capes and rescue kittens from tall trees, surely. Well, if you could be doing better on the whole eating healthy front, not to worry, Sweetgrass Food Co. will be hosting Lisa Levine of Audacious Health and Wellness on Thursday from 6–8pm. Levine will demystify adaptogens, superfoods, and talk about how to add them to your diet. Hey, if it helps to relieve stress, boost immunity, make us less zombie-like, we're in! Tickets are $40 and include a superfood-enhanced dinner, plus wine.

Callus Vintage Market
This one's for the vintage hunter-gatherers out there. In Pioneer Square, this corner shop will be hosting some of Seattle's loveliest purveyors of bygone goods—think high-waisted woven slacks, silk blazers, and slouchy linen everything. Yes, there will be one-of-a-kind jewelry, too. The vintage market goes from 11 to 5pm all weekend.
