I could spend days in Trousseau of Dallas, marveling at all the exquisite lingerie sets. I love pretty under things. When it comes to editing a collection down to the best, owner Nasrin Hormozi has mastered it, stocking her silk and lace-filled boutique with the best lines, both well known and locally under-the-radar. If you head in TODAY, Thursday, Feb. 7, from 5 pm to 7 pm, you’ll find all merchandise at 20 percent off along. Plus, there will be champagne, makeup touch-ups courtesy Blushington, and goodies from Chocolate Secrets.
playful: Damaris Vegas bra ($148) and knicker ($120)
sweet: (left) Mimi Holliday Bloss bra ($110) and hipster ($75) and (right) Les Jupons de Tess ruffle bra ($235) and tie-back thong ($185)
hot: Les Jupons de Tess Culotte balconnet bra ($298) and panty ($228)
A note regarding price points: I went with my whimsy, picking all my favorite pieces regardless of price tag, but there are items for budgets across the board.
There’s still a void in my soul from the closing of Ahab Bowen, but my heart is open and willing to love anew. I’m looking forward to shopping the scene at new Thrift Kitten (update: now named Mieux & Mieux) on Boll Street. Owned and operated by local gal Kelsey McLain, the store offers “new and gently loved brand name women’s clothing and accessories.” I suggest you make a post-work pit stop this Friday for champagne, cupcakes, and a storewide 10 percent discount. To RSVP, text 214-886-1377.
I’m beyond smitten with this enamel bangle with emerald and diamond details. It’s so Art Deco/Great Gatsby, and I just want to run off into the sunset with it. Designer Heather Asbury designs and imports her collection from India, which is handmade using precious and semi-precious stones. And if this isn’t enough proof that you can trust Asbury to know beautiful things, rely on her resume, which boasts stints as a couture buyer for Neiman Marcus, manager of Beretta Gallery in Highland Park Village, and owner of her own interior design firm, Asbury Interiors. But back to the bracelet. Swoon. $4,981 online at raregemsofindia.com. And then I’ll take the cameo owl and emerald earrings.
