What’s on your agenda for the weekend, fashion friends?
Are you planning to hit up your favorite bar or brewery and drink away the chill in the air? Is there a Vikings game on? (Honestly, I have no idea. Please enlighten me.) Are you going to bundle up in layers and go for a run around one of the lakes?
This weekend is full of possibility... and full of shopping events, should you be so inclined to flex your spending muscles.
