The Men Behind Lounge County on Why We All Love Waffle Weave

Girls, remember how attached we were to our velour Juicy sweatpants? We wore them everywhere, often with a color coordinating velour jacket. The grocery store, Starbucks, Blockbuster… Juicy tracksuit. They were just so darn comfortable. But I believe in gender equality, and I believe that men should have something just as comfy as our velour tracksuits, except maybe a little easier on the eyes. Okay, a lot easier on the eyes.

Enter Lounge County, the new loungewear brand offering menfolk the luxury of comfy threads that don’t sacrifice style. Imagine a waffle weave so wonderfully tailored, you wouldn’t be alarmed (or embarrassed) to see a gentleman caller showing up to take you to dinner and a movie in them. But a man in sweats, off the couch?! It’s not the easiest concept to grasp. So I caught up with the men behind the comfy collection, Texas natives Zach Redington and Andy Archer, to learn more about their new venture, the future of Lounge County, and whether or not the logo is indeed an octopus. (Spoiler alert: It is not. But close!)

Libertine Now Available at Neiman Marcus

It’s Arts Week here in Dallas, and don’t think that doesn’t extend to fashion, as well. Johnson Hartig, the pattern-mixing pro and founder of the Libertine label (and soon-to-be author) is in-store at Neiman Marcus Downtown to mark the induction of his line into the store. His artistic mix of graphics and embellishments make his arrival in Dallas more than timely as we take an artistic eye to all that Dallas has to offer.

Gwyneth Paltrow Visits Highland Park Village

It’s been a big year for Gwyneth Paltrow. From coining the term “conscious uncoupling” to opening a new pop-up shop in Dallas, the mother of two has a résumé filled with titles like “actress,” “singer,” and “lifestyle guru.” The Highland Park Village Goop store opened on Monday, but it wasn’t until Thursday night that Dallas’ style stars […]

The Show Me Your Mumu Designers on Lip Balm, Skinny Margaritas, and Their Dream Collaboration

Girl crush alert. I recently sat down with Cammy Hebert and Cologne Schmidt, the designers behind playful bohemian line, Show Me Your Mumu. The two are college classmates (Berkley, specifically), business partners, part-time models (spot them posing in their own lookbooks), and still, somehow, besties. (They even complete each others’ sentences.) While they were in Dallas, as the featured designers during the Fashion Industry Gallery’s market, I got to chat with the two peas in a pod and walk through the racks of fall samples–where I promptly fell head-over-heels in love a purple-flecked velvet burnout kimono. Show Me Your Mumu has a music festival vibe–especially when topped with flower headbands–but break down the looks, and you have perfect everyday wear: brunch maxis, vacay staples, breathable separates for surviving upcoming summer months, pretty fall prints, and cozy rompers. Shop the line locally at Hemline, L. Bartlett, and The Gypsy Wagon. Read our Q&A with the design duo.

Q&A with Jewelry Designer Eddie Borgo (Plus, Meet Him Tomorrow!)

Eddie Borgo was making cool jewels for photo shoots before he launched his designs for his masses. Editorially-inspired, he makes collections with rock-and-roll edge: slightly dangerous, totally glamorous (hello, gold five-finger ring draped in a strand of pavé crystals). Additionally, Eddie Borgo’s line is on the affordable side (so I actually knock these rose gold spike earrings off my wish list). Meet the main man and shop his designs tomorrow at Neiman Marcus Downtown from 10 am to 3 pm. In the meantime, get to know him with our quick Q&A. (We too love a minimal wardrobe and vintage Levi’s.)
