Vampire fashion? Designer Twilight clothing and an advanced movie screening hit Houston

This time of year signals the great social slowdown, but don't put away those cute shoes yet. There's still plenty of places to drop some cash and even scoop up some sneak peek movie tickets too.

Twilight Fashion

Bye-bye Biebs. Sayonara Jo Bros. Edward and Jacob are set to steal your thunder with the release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opening June 30.

If you want to indulge in the age-old vampire versus werewolf debate with zillion of squealing tweens, head to Nordstrom Friday for the unveiling of clothing inspired by Bella and Alice and score a pass to an advanced screening June 29 with any $50 purchase. Head up to the Brass Plum department (a great place to land amazing and inexpensive accessories BTW) and go early to get movie passes.

Bag Discount

Local bag designer Beth Younger is offering a 20-percent discount on all JulieBeth bags through Sunday. Her bags are handmade in New York from Italian leather and range from the roomy Aspen bag to the Versailles, perfect for jaunts to Europe or just the local wine bar. Enter JBFRIEND at checkout for the discount.

 PetSet Kickoff 

Muse Boutique is keeping the social spirit alive this month with fetes for two and four-legged friends. We have a whole summer to sweat through, but it’s worth checking out the Alicia Bell trunk show June 8-10 for pieces designed to transition from summer to fall.

The PetSet Soiree isn’t until Sept. 11 but every gala needs a kickoff party, so Muse is holding a night of Chardonnay and shopping June 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. Billy, the Muppet-like Labradoodle, serves as a friendly greeter every day and on this special kickoff night, pet owners are encouraged to bring their own pets to the party.
