The weather is cooling down just in time for fashion season in Houston to heat up! Clear your calendars (and your credit card balance) because in addition to this onslaught of fashion--Christmas is coming. You know it, I know it, and the retailers in the Galleria know it. (Seriously, the decorations are going up already).
The first stop on our November fashion tour requires fast action--you only have until Sunday, November 2, to pick up (and use!) your Houston Holiday Shopping Card. Purchase the card for $75 and start shopping: you enjoy 20 percent off of purchases at hundreds of area stores, and a donation will be made to the American Cancer Society for each purchase. The card is only valid through November 2, so get to it!
Now, let's go get us some fashion.

Oscar de la Renta Trunk Show at Neiman Marcus at The Galleria on Tuesday, November 11
When Oscar de la Renta died earlier this month, the world took notice--and not just the fashion world. His elegance was demonstrated in both his clothes, and his own life.

On Tuesday, November 11, visit Neiman Marcus at the Galleria for what is sure to be a memorable trunk show of OdlR designer jewelry. (10 p.m. through 5 p.m., Level One)

Faberge at HMNS, Through 2015
Sometimes fashion moves much too fast, so it's great when it sits conveniently still for you, allowing you to ogle it for hours on end. If you need time to really absorb your fashion, we must recommend the latest Fabergé exhibit at HMNS. Over 150 new pieces have been added, and you will see everything from fabulous jewelry to opulent, everyday items--jewel-encrusted, of course. The exhibit is on display now through 2015, and is free to HMNS members.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
