It’s 5:45 on a Tuesday and the CUSP department at Neiman Marcus NorthPark is brimming with women dressed in brightly printed wrap dresses. No, this isn’t a society event for which your invite got lost in the mail, it’s a personal appearance by design royalty Diane von Furstenberg. Between her new television show and memoir and the 40th anniversary of the […]

Snakes, Black Diamonds, and Moody Jewels Abound on New Barbed Wire E-Shop

You know I was always swooning walking into Cicada Collection in Snider Plaza. No recognizable designers, no flashy colors; just beautifully made things in subtle color palettes with architectural, head-turning shapes. It was a one-of-a-kind shop. (Well, except for the Sante Fe location, which still stands.) Anyway, it closed, and I was sad to stop being introduced […]

Exclusively at Stanley Korshak: Ela Mirrored Rose Gold Studded Pouch

Stanley Korshak is now the exclusive purveyor of Ela handbags in Dallas. The line, a collaborative endeavor of wife and hubby, Ela and Martin Aldorsson, is a medley of simple, sophisticated bags with a just-right amount of trend. I am completely in a tizzy over the mirrored rose gold studded Editor’s pouch (see above). If you haven’t been bitten by the rose gold bug, you’ll surely be wooed by the clean, minimalistic look of the cream studded pouch or the edgy star-embossed black version. I want all three. And the price points aren’t mind-blowing. Editor’s pouches (about 11 inches long) ring up at $225; Senior Editor’s pouches (about 13 inches) ring up at $325 to $345.

Come Shop Pretty Floral Perfumes with Us on Friday at LAFCO New York

Highland Park Village’s LAFCO New York storefront is one of my favorite shops in town, and I am beyond delighted to be helping host their spring fragrance party this Friday, May 2. The petite apothecary stocks the shelves with their pretty house brand perfumes, candles, diffusers, soap bars, and new body creams and hand soaps; boutique fragrance collections; and very special Santa Maria Novella line, whose products have been hand-crafted in a Florentine monastery since 1221. Everything in this boutique smells magical.

Pop in anytime this Friday, grab a glass of bubbles, ditch your exhausted designer perfume, and pick a new signature scent. Perhaps a spring-friendly floral? I’ll be in the shop from 4 pm to 6 pm, in a state of aroma-induced bliss, loading up on my favorite things (namely, Santa Maria Novella colognes in violet and rose and everything in LAFCO’s Fleur de Baies scent of bayberry, rose, currant, and raspberry). If you settle on the perfect scent, you’ll receive a gift with purchase. If you don’t need anything for yourself, this is a gift-giver’s haven, and Mother’s Day is around the corner. But, really. Who couldn’t use a little luxury for herself? More details here.
