Deal Divas hosting free spring fashion show at Macy's Saturday!



You knew it was only a matter of time before you stumbled into Macy's on a Saturday to pick up a pair of leggings and saw our festive faces staring back at you, announcing trends into microphones. Friends, that time is upon us.

The Times Deal Divas are BACK, live and in person, hosting another fabulous fashion show this weekend at Macy's. This time, we're taking the show on the road to Westfield Countryside, 7001 US Highway 19 in Clearwater. The fun starts at 2 p.m. on the second floor in the Impulse department.

Making things even sweeter, we're hosting this show with our fashiony friend Kristin Swenson from BonBon Rose Girls (follow this awesome blog if you don't already). We can't wait to induct her into our Macy's backstage hijinks, slathering on eye shadow while we practice saying "PALAZZO PANTS" without popping our p's. Relive our past Macy's shows here and here.

The theme for the spring show is The Secret Garden. That means florals galore, lace, eyelets, pale pink shoes (need), stacked wooden heels, bold blocking, white pants (WHO WILL BE BRAVE?), plus some zoo-fancy motifs in animal prints and khakis. One look I'm personally excited for? Blousy trousers, just the thing to ease into spring after a winter spent eating our weights in cream cheese spreads and Riesling. You can get a preview some of the trends in the slideshow above.

I'm thrilled/scared about the new location, thrilled because Countryside is my favorite hometown mall, scared because I'm ATTEMPTING a spending freeze after my vacation last week filled with Sea Bass Oscar and $12 margaritas. We'll see how it goes. The last two Macy's shows we hosted, I don't think any of us Deal Divas left without buying something modeled off our own backs. Lord, charge me strength.

However, you are certainly invited, nay, encouraged, to shop. All the trends we feature in the show will be for sale, and when you spend $75 or more in the women's department, you get a fun gift. Clinique consultants will be on hand to give spring makeup tips, and there will be a candy station, I REPEAT, CANDY STATION.

See you at 2 p.m. Saturday in the Impulse department on the second floor! We'll be the ones dancing and taking lots of pictures, pockets of our palazzo pants bulging with candy.
