The 20th annual Partners Card program, presented by Bank of Texas, will be held Friday, October 26 through Sunday, November 4, 2012.

This year’s New York Fashion Week was a creative parade of classic looks with a focus on the sophisticated lady. The runway featured trendsetters like J. Crew (Level 1) with big, bold florals mixed with stripes and Juicy Couture’s (Level 1) resurrection of the modern-day Pin Up girl with an LA spin on a 1950s color palate. The look was full of silhouettes with over-the-top femininity, a look Dallas women have been gracing for many seasons.
And while Dallas may be a long distance from NYC, let’s face it– Dallas is a destination with its own sense of style. Whether she is sporting her red Louboutins for a night on the town or just grabbing her Louis Vuitton for a run for groceries, nobody does it with the finesse of a Dallas lady. Looking good isn’t just about what she’s wearing, but it’s also about how she feels. So she gets her healthy glow from a customized facial at Halcyon Spa at Saks Fifth Avenue Spa, a little makeup touch up from MAC at Macy’s and off for a little bubbly and relaxation at The Second Floor. When Dallas wants to experience style, they go to Galleria Dallas.
It’s the best mid-week stress reliever in Dallas – girls’ night out at Galleria Dallas! The car service picks us up at our offices, and then we head straight up the Tollway to be dropped off at what has to be the most dramatically-glam entrance in all of DFW! Even if a red carpet isn’t unrolled tonight, just making our appearance under the towering palms of the Alley Entrance makes us feel special.
First stop – Tous, to shop the just-announced Rosa de Abril Collection of unique jeweled pieces inspired by the famed European opera star. We’re also tempted by Tous’ perennially fun and flippant Teddy Bear who appears on adorable pieces from stackable bracelets to pavé black diamond earrings.
Next we’re at Brahmin for the ultimate season extender – a contemporary crossbody bag in an exclusive new angel fish novelty leather print! But we know it’s almost fall, even in Texas, so we head to Saks Fifth Avenue to try on the new Jimmy Choo collection. Will it be the Maury Velvet & Metallic Leather Sandals or the Blair Lace-Covered Mesh and Patent Leather Pumps? Let’s do both!
We’re winded and starving – so our final stop becomes our longest –dinner and drinks at Grill on The Alley. We didn’t think the Wild Berry Mojito and the Trio of Hummus could be topped – until we wrapped our evening with the Fudge Brownie Pie and Red Velvet Martini.
This summer, fashion is all about making a statement, and Galleria Dallas fashion stylist Holly Quartaro shares style secrets to make heads turn wherever you go.
“First, summer is a great time to explore color,” notes Quartaro. “The season’s hottest trends, including breeze summer dresses, bold vertical stripes and color-blocked bolds, all feature an amazing palette of hues.”
Quartaro suggests that trend setters seek to set themselves apart with by approaching the trend with a twist. “Add a texture to make your colors stand out. This season, we’re seeing beautiful crochet, lace and other detailing in bold brights, and those really pop against summer skin and classic neutrals.” She showcases examples in every price point and a broad range of retailers including H&M, Lucky Brand and Kenneth Cole.
For those cautious about diving deeply into color, Quartaro suggests building a look with key accessories in brights. “This season, I found bold turquoise and blue necklaces at J. Crew and statement making bags in bright yellow at Brahmin.”
Whatever your personal style, the unparalleled array of retailers at Galleria Dallas make statement making second nature for savvy shoppers.

MicroPeels encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells while stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. The MicroPeel solution is tailored to fit your individual skin type. MicroPeels are designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discoloration while reducing the appearance of acne scars and damage to the skin.
The benefits of Vivite Peel are increased hydration, improved overall clarity and smoothness of the skin, and reduction of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Expect to see improvements in dry, rough textured, sun damaged, or dull looking skin. It works by accelerating the removal of the dry, damaged outer layer of skin delivering a high glycolic content to maximize results. The botanical antioxidants in the peel rapidly begin to heal and repair the skin.
