11 a.m.: We put our turkey caps on to talk Black Friday with retail guru Tina Wilcox of Black Retail, on Shop Girls, myTalk107.1. From the left: Wilcox, my co-host Alexis Walsko and me. Wilcox says tweens are the ones to watch this holiday season–they have long wish lists and few practical concerns about spending. (Check out the December issue of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine for more shopping insights from Wilcox.)
2 p.m.: Costume change! Slipped into Michael Kors sequins to host Herberger’s fashion show–a splashy way to mark the opening of the Southdale Center store.
Oh my. It’s Will Deifel, whom you may recognize from the Calvin Klein ads. (Of course I look possessed.):
Right. The fashion. Lots of faux fur, sparkle, shades of grey, and more sparkle and faux fur:
7 p.m.: One more change, this time to my own dress (from the BCBG clearance rack)…for the Fraser Gala, where I “judged” a fashion show of dresses from Glitz at Mall of America with the evening’s emcee, designer and Project Runway alum Christopher Straub. (Look for his first collection for Maurice’s in stores on Friday.)
