    Carolina Herrera celebrates the offical grand opening of her boutique at the Bal Harbour Shops.

    It's Wednesday, which means it's almost time to don the weekend wardrobe!

    If that doesn't get you excited, then you know you need some retail therapy fast.

    Forget Forever 21, if you're a true fashionista, this shopping session should be at no other place than the Carolina Herrera boutique in the Bal Harbour Shops.

    You might be thinking "show me the money," but no moolah is needed for this shopping experience.

    Herrera herself will be there tonight to toast to her 2010 Spring Collection and her "new" store which opened seven months ago.

    Fans of the iconic Venezuelan designer should arrive between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. for a chance to meet her inside the shop.

    The 2,000 square-foot store is her fourth in the US. Others are located in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas.

    Unlike her CH Carolina Herrera boutique at The Village of Merrick Park, this store is stocked with totally different merchandise.

    Inside, find her Carolina Herrera New York collection, the Carolina Herrera Bridal collection and her line of sunglasses.

    The shop also carries accessories by Judith Leiber, Nancy Gonzalez, Manolo Blahnik and Faraone Mennella.
