Looking for Saturday plans? Go ahead and add these to your calendar:

*The Wearable Art fashion show returns for its 10th year Saturday at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd. Known for stretching the definition of "garment," the show challenges local artists and designers to transform everyday items -- think cotton balls, mops, table doilies -- into haute couture.

The runway portion is at 8:30 p.m., sandwiched between a 7 p.m. pre-party and a 9:30 p.m. after-party. Catwalk seats are sold out, but you can still snag bleacher seats for $40 or standing-room tickets for $20. Click here for more information.

*Need something to wear to the show? Or just prefer to stay in? Macy's has got you covered!

The retailer is offering 25 percent discounts Saturday to customers who make a $5 donation to the March of Dimes either in stores or online. The ninth annual "Shop for a Cause" event benefits local charities that support pregnancy and baby health.

Last year's event raised more than $200,000 across Florida alone, officials said. More info here.
