Head over to Facelogic with your retired (or new!) profesional style purses and jewelry as a donation to Attitudes & Attire, and redeem a $29 Glam Microdermabrasion Treatment voucher. (It’s usually $79.) If doing good isn’t enough to get you there, perhaps a few treats and drinks on the spa will do it. (You only have to bring one item, but let’s be honest, cleaning out the closet won’t kill you.) 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
We’re rolling out another round of Dallas style setters and the current stuff they love. Check ShopTalk every day this week for a fresh face and new favorite things. Next up, Tara McCray, stylish, supermodel-esque contemporary clothing expert at Tootsies.
Charlotte Olympia Rapunzel Braided Raffia Wedge. “I love the basket weave and the black ribbon on the back, super girly!”
Favorite Dallas Shopping Spots:
1. Tootsies. “TOOTSIES of course! It’s your one-stop-shop from designer to denim, handbags, shoes, and jewels. Tootsies has such a fun vibe and caters to all ages. What other place in Dallas can you shop while having a cocktail at a fully stocked bar, listen to some great tunes, and walk out looking like a million bucks?”
2. Vintage Martini. “I’m super into discount shopping and finding that “diamond in the rough.” It’s a great place to find your vintage designer pieces.”
3. The Gypsy Wagon. “Anytime I need to pick up a gift, this is my go to spot.”
Favorite Spring Trend:
Braided hair and bright floral prints. “I love braided hair because its a quick fix on a bad hair day, whimsical and girly. And floral prints are so much fun and it makes me smile.”
Amy Severson from Sevy’s Grill just alerted me to her cool new purchase: a pair of hand-painted, college-themed TOMS. Blossoming entrepreneur, Molly Fisher, only 19 years old, started Painted Pairs, a customization business personalizing TOMS shoes with paint jobs. It sounds simple as pie. Send Molly the size of shoes with a description of the design you’re looking for, and voila! She’ll begin and send you a proof for review. Expect to pay $50 for the famous buy-one-get-one shoes, $30 for the artwork, and $5 postage if they’re being shipped. (If you already have a pair of TOMS you want used, it’s no problem. Send them her way.) Collegiate footwear will make a perfect graduating gift for high schoolers and TOMS lovers (like this Texas Tech pair), but Molly can handle a variety of motifs (sorority? game day apparel?). To get your paws on a pair, email Molly Fisher at email@example.com.
On an unrelated note, I just discovered Sevy’s has a new happy hour every weekday with $7 glasses of wine from 5 pm to 7 pm in the bar, lounge, or patio. Patio, please.
