Don't forget to head over to Soigne Boutique (4800 Burnet Rd., 300-2929) between 4-7pm today for the happy hour showcase of Austin jewelry designer Tracy Tenpenny's beautiful collection of calcedony necklaces and other natural mineral pieces. All clothing, shoes, and purses will be 20% off, so we'll be browsing while sipping champagne and cheating on our diets with chocolates from RIX Chocolates. Then we're heading over to Avenue Five Institute (8620 Burnet Rd., 968-2835) by 7pm for the Vaudevillians Fashion Show. The theme for the catwalk is said to be old Hollywood glamour meets Heirloom Jewelry designs. We're more curious, though, to see the Cabaret-inspired show put on by Avenue Five students. The night will be emceed by Felony Convictions with a special appearance by Ruby Collins from Cap City Comedy Club. All this plus free drinks! Both events are free.
