Could this be the best-looking cast of any show on TV right now?

The stars of HBO's "True Blood" donned their finest Tuesday night at the L.A. premiere of the show's fourth season. And everyone -- well, almost everyone (I'm looking at you, Brandon Routh) -- looked amazing. Here's a look at some of the highlights. Let me know who you like and who you don't:

It's entirely possible this blog post is just an excuse to run photo of Alexander Skarsgard. The man can't really look bad, let's be honest, but he looks especially yummy in this dark blue suit, accented beautifully with a plaid shirt and soft, quilted tie. Matt Sayles~AP

Boutique shoppers: Make sure to check out the Warehouse Sale at Veruca Salt, 520 N. Kingsbury, this weekend for up to 90 percent off the store's clothing.

The sale will be up on the 8th floor of the building, but you have to check in at the shop before you can head upstairs.

Hours are 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. today; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

As always, if you go, let me know what you find!

Take a much-needed break from the heat this Saturday and pop into Gurnee Mills for a free Summer Fashion Show. You'll find out what's new at stores such as Lane Bryant Outlet, dressbarn, Group USA, Motherhood Maternity, Fan's Edge and Time Factory Watch Outlet.

Shoppers will receive free goodie bags at the event. Plus, sign up for a chance to win prizes such as a women's watch from Movado Company Store, a gift certificate to E'Lan Nails, a watch from Time Factory Watch Outlet, sunglasses, accessories and a gift certificate to Lane Bryant Outlet, free passes to Serpent Safari, and other gifts from Nancy's Travel and Black Market Minerals.

The show begins at 2 p.m. Saturday at the food court at Gurnee Mills, 6170 W. Grand in Gurnee.

Ever wonder what 'B-Girls' in Wolfbait & B-Girls refers too? Could it be "Bike Girls?" From now until July 27, anyone who bicycles to the Logan Square boutique will score 20 percent off any one item.

Woldbait & B-Girls, which sells works from more than 170 Chicago artisans, is at 3131 W. Logan. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday; closed Monday

Re.Stock Shop
-- a sneaky little designer sample sale that travels around Chicago, popping up in vacant storefronts for a few months at a time -- is celebrating its two-year anniversary with a party from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, June 23, at their current showroom at 1452 N. Milwaukee.

Snack on treats while you score up to 90 percent off fashion and accessories for men and women. The first 50 customers will score goodie bags. This month, designers include Five Crown, Modern Amusement, Alberto Makali, Objects d' Envy, Eva Khurshid, Lewis Cho and Heatherette.

If you can't make the party and still want to check out the savings, you can stop by from now until the end of June. Hours are noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday).

If you make it there, send me a note to let me know what you found!
