Weekend Picks - Saturday, March 9, 2013
What: Though it's only been in stores for a few days, 19th & Whimsy's spring collection is already turning up the heat with handkerchief hem wrap dresses, shimmery raglan tees with tiny flower details, and belted dresses covered in colorful paw prints (left), courtesy of designer Lauren Hayashibara's very own pooch.

Praise the Bar

When: Preliminary rounds begin Tuesday at 7 p.m. and continue March 19 and 26 with the big competition on April 2. Full schedule here.
