Spanish Accessories Trunk Show at Meadows Museum: We don’t have a problem with department store jewelry counters. It’s just that sometimes we need something more special. Like the dual trunk shows of Spanish fashion designer Marta de Diego and Spanish jewelry designer Vicente Gracia this Saturday at SMU’s Meadows Museum. In collaboration with the museum’s Sorolla and America exhibit, the shop will offer the likes of “green lambskin gloves, reversible scarves, skullcap hats with canard feathers, hair spikes in pearl with Swarovski crystal, and one-of-kind earrings, necklaces and rings featuring colorful fish, bird and nature motifs,” all inspired by the work of artist Joaquín Sorolla. We love accessories with a story. Happening this Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Jingle Bells Bazaar: The sun is coming back out this weekend, so put on your happy face and head to this outdoor market in Bishop Arts. Shop local makers like f. is for frank, Dowdy Studio, Three Yellow Starfish, Sarah Briggs, and more.
H.D.’s Clothing Company Canned Food Drive: Into its 25th year, H.D.’s (both ladies’ and men’s shops) are taking cans for in-store discounts. Bring 25 and receive 25 percent off your order. Don’t have a wheel barrow to bring in the cans? Bring $25 cash. That’ll work, too. Donations benefit West Dallas Multipurpose Center and AIDS Resource Center and the discount benefits your closet.
Blogger Connect Party at Blues Jean Bar: The more bloggers there seem to crop up, the more blogger soirees that pop up. The Snider Plaza boutique (Sarah Hepola’s new favorite denim digs) is hosting this mix and mingle. A “How to Wear the Perfect Jean for your Body” presentation is in cue.

That’ll do.
