The pop-up shop is organized by Barbara Berg, owner of Boutique B’lou, and Wren Solares, who has coordinated many fashion and retail-related events around town. Solares says Tasha Rae, of the eponymous jewelry line, “will be making jewelry with her blowtorch outside so that guests can see how she makes her incredible jewelry. ”

Tonight’s festivities run from 5-9 p.m.
