If you've been waiting for the perfect occasion to pull that never-been-worn, over-the-top (in a good way) dress out of your closet, wait no longer: Glamorama is the occasion to do so. The fashion-forward variety show benefits the Children's Cancer Research Fund, and has raised over $41 million in the last 30 years. The event only takes place in four cities, and Minneapolis is one of the lucky stops.

This year's theme is British Invasion, which pays homage to some of the most influential Brit pop artists of the past 50 years. The event is being held at the historical Orpheum Theatre, and musical headliners include American pop duo Karmin and R&B artist Robin Thicke. (Yes, Alan Thicke from Growing Pains has a platinum album-selling musician for a son.)

If you don't own the perfect never-been-worn, over-the-top dress, then you need to go find something. With six locations in the Twin Cities area, Macy's has the selection, credibility, and staff to get you dressed up for Glamorama in a way that makes you feel like you should be on the runway yourself.

Many fashion-forward guys and gals maintain their personal style by trying to tell a story in their look. Combining a collection of high-end and affordable brands that work in unison is one popular approach. Macy's is a shop that allows people to create a stylish masterpiece that pulls from all categories and budgets, with brands including Rachel Roy, Marc Jacobs, and Theory. Macy's private brand, Bar III, will be on the runway at Glamorama's show, so be sure to get a closer look at it beforehand in the store.

Before heading to the Orpheum for your style-infused evening, grab your group and enjoy the last of this warm summer weather on the rooftop at Solera. Known for its Spanish focused tapas menu, the downtown restaurant is perfect for a group looking to share and savor a variety of delicious flavors. The menu features fresh, locally farmed ingredients, and is always evolving with interesting combinations. Executive Chef Jorge Guzman is as humble as he is talented, stating that he "just makes simple food with great ingredients."

Don't forget to try one of their infamous Sangrias. Our favorite? The S&M, which is a mix of Verdejo, strawberry, and mint.
