For years, only kiddos could experience the joy of slithering through the famous Neiman Marcus Holiday Window Display downtown. Not this year. Finally, we’re invited. In partnership with the North Texas Food Bank, Neiman Marcus Downtown is opening up the festive jungle gym to us big kids on each Thursday before Christmas. (That’s tonight!) Bring a $20 donation (for the NTFB), and from 5 pm to 7 pm, enjoy Adult Crawl Night, where you can sip a complimentary beverage at the NM Espresso Bar and go clambering through the tube. FYI: Bring a pair of pants. No one looks ladylike crawling through tunnels in a dress. Not even if it’s Dolce & Gabbana.
I could find one thousand ways to put these tri-colored, heart-cutout bags from NewbarK to use. What I can’t find is the cash to fork over. (They ring up at $395, $450, and $495 from smallest to largest.) But maybe you can. And if so, you should. NewbarK handbags are the project of sister stylists Maryam and Marjan Malakpour, based in L.A. The line of shoes and bags is simple, sophisticated, and, in this case, totally cute. Naturally, new Number One/Le Jus in Highland Park Village is the only place stocking the line. While you’re there, grab a green juice. It’s under $10.
