Brides-to-be and those who love them will want to line up now for Monique Lhuillier's Bliss trunk show
(Today through Saturday, Monique Lhuillier Flagship Salon, 3928 W 50th St, Edina. 612-929-0747, by appointment). The lower-priced line retails for $2,640 to $3,500, but you'd never know these stunners were such a bargain. Do you think we could get away with this lacy number at the Iveys
next week? Too much?
Feel like doing some treasure hunting? Do not pass go, head straight for the Junk Bonanza
(10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, $8 tickets). Thanks to a partnership with Etsy.com, there will also be craft supplies and handmade items available. Vote for the ugliest lamp, snack on seasonal goodies from Marshall's Farm Market
and trade in your old gold and silver
Oh, insanity! We're rarely ever out of town
and two of our faves -- Amy Rice and Jennifer Davis
-- have opened a downtown St. Paul pop-up gallery
. Well, enjoy on our behalf (8 to 6 p.m. today and Saturday, 8 to 9 p.m. Friday, The Historic Minnesota Building, 46 4th Street E, St. Paul).
This Creative Connection
event is pretty cool. We have admired Christina Ferrare for years and not just because she made a version of Nana's pumpkin chiffon pie
." Anyhoo, tons going on for those who like to make things with their own hands. If you happen to be in the crochet slipper class, we'd love a pair in an 8.5.
We're still at Fashion Week. It feels like we've been here forever! We're tweeting
, though. Also, check out the cool local gals
who were part of Elle Fashion Next
. One of them won $25,000. That's a lot of fabric!
