Look Great for Less: Weekend Shopping in Houston
It's Friday, and the weekend is upon us. If you've got time on your hands and money burning a hole in your pocket, allow us to share a few suggestions on how to spend both.
Whether you're looking for new shoes, a new haircut or a new look from top to bottom, there are plenty of great deals to be had in and around Houston this weekend. And a few of them can be found without ever leaving your house -- hermits rejoice!
From big department stores to boutique shops, there's something for the shopper in all of us.
Okay, everyone, warm up your credit cards.

Cheeky Vintage via Houston Tidbits
Just as we were compiling this little shopping list, the folks over at Houston Tidbits sent us an e-mail letting us know that we can score 25 percent off at Cheeky Vintage -- online or in-store. The sale is a continuation of yesterday's offer, so get on that.
Elaine Turner is holding their semi-annual handbag sale, where you can save up to 50 percent online or in-store. Keep an eye out next week, when you can shop Elaine Turner for a cause. On Thursday, June 27, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., you can stop by Elaine Turner's Rice Village location, where your purchase will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Enjoy light bites and cocktails, and 20 percent of your purchase will go to LLS.
Sephora is celebrating 15 years, offering a host of products for $15 or less. There are lots of goodies to be had here, and we particularly love the Caudalie Divine Oil ($9), the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray ($15) and the Julep Shades of Grey Nail Polish Set ($15 -- a $42 value!).
