Looking for a shopping buddy? New Deal Diva shares weekend plans



So, this is kind of a big deal for me. (No pun intended.)

Joining the Deal Divas, who I admire and often opine with about The Bachelorette and fashion victims at large, gives me a legit reason to spend hours staring at clothing and trying to find ways to recreate looks I love. Thank you, merciful fashion over lords, for believing in me. I will try not to offend fans of things I wish didn't exist. (Success not guaranteed.)

But enough about me. It's somehow still only Thursday. :(

Let's make plans for the weekend to brighten our lives. These plans brought to you by the color blue and the letter F for fabulous. 

Cerulean Blu boutique at 400 Beach Drive, Suite 161 in St. Petersburg is planning a weekend long trunk show for the Veronica M line starting Friday morning. That means you can take 10 percent off the grey fringe cardigan,  long sleeve maxi dress or any other Veronica M item you've been eyeballing on the website for months. Trunks shows are fun because they give you not just a chance to see the clothes in person, but to see them on a human up close and know if it was meant for you or if a piece is a dreaded "for stick figures only" style.


Across the bridge,  Bluemercury, 704 S. Village Circle in Tampa, a luxury skin care boutique, is opening its first store in the market in Tampa's Hype Park Village Saturday. Grand openings are what happiness is made of. Not only are stores plying you with giveaways, samples and food and drink to keep you inside longer, owners are also getting a feel for the community and offering a few discounts to get you hooked on products they know will sell well later. #GrangOpeningsRMagic 

Starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, Bluemercury will open its doors to dish out mini makeovers, champagne and cucpakes. As a luxury skin care store, it sells the brands you hear about in Vogue (La Mer, Laura Mercier, Jo Malone, Kiehl’s, Oribe) but can never find during your Target run. So if they're offering samples, stock up, ladies. 

I know I will. If you need me, I'll be the lady who keeps changing sunglasses hoping the clerks don't recognize her as she passes the cupcake table for the third time. Don't judge me.
