Oscar de la Renta Spring 2009 Trunk Show at Nordstrom
The chance to view the entire collection by an internationally-renowned fashion designer up close is a rare opportunity - even if you can't afford to buy any of it. If you're a true fashion lover, samples from Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2009 collection will be on display atNordstrom at the Mall of America (11 a.m.-4 p.m., Feb. 4-5). The Spring 2009 collection features de la Renta's signature luxurious fabrics, embroidery, and ladylike elegance, though it could perhaps stand to loosen up a bit. In these trying economic times, wearability are just as key as quality and design.

Even if you can't afford to take a trip to an exotic locale this winter, you can at least wear a piece of it. Local jewelry line ROX by designer Robyne Robinson fields most of the materials used in her one-of-a-kind designs from Greece to Paris to obscure tiny islands. She'll be showcasing her latest finds in elegant arrangements both delicate and bold at this trunk show Saturday from 12-5 p.m. at Luna Vinca.
