Check out these Twin Cities’ style and shopping events in the next two weeks.
Style Masterclass: Body Types
Learn what silhouettes and clothes best flatter your body type by understanding how you’re built, what’s out there, and how you can go from day to night wear in the latest class in the Silhouettes of a Woman series. If desired, you can also receive measurements from Queen Anna House of Fashion’s in-store seamstress so your shopping can get more precise.
