Did you dress up for Halloween? My weekends of jam-packed Halloween festivities and candy corn binges ended when I moved to Switzerland. But it will always be a special day for me as I met my husband on October 31st exactly four years ago.
Although, we didn’t dress up for Halloween this year in Dallas, the past few months I’ve been paying special attention to fashion in DFW. There is more leather, fringe, tassel, leopard print, gold and bright colors than I’ve seen in years and I love it. My wardrobe turned to black in Europe with the occasional neutral and grey accents, so this is a welcome change. Here’s my top 4 tips (so far) to capture the style and vibe of Dallas (if you’re local, let me know your thoughts and what I’m missing)…
The Scene – One of the cutest coffee shops in Dallas tucked away in the Harwood District called Magnolias – Sous Le Pont. From the marble tables, adorable decor, coffee, and outdoor setting; if you’re a fashion blogger, Magnolias is pure instagram-gold.
1. Nails, nails, nails… It is so nice to be around affordable nail spas again. In Texas, beauty is BIG business, and women have great nails. I carry a mini OPI nail polish around in my purse in case my nails aren’t done before meetings. I’ve been to Posh Nails in Uptown so far where I got this mani (OPI Black Cherry Chutney).
2. Accessorized in Kendra Scott – My rose gold bracelet is the Bianca Cuff in rose gold by Kendra Scott. I’d never heard of Kendra Scott before moving to Dallas, but now I’m convinced that if you live in Texas, you must have at least 1 piece (okay, maybe 15 pieces) of Kendra Scott jewelry. (Bay Area Sidenote) Kendra Scott opened a location in Santana Row if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area.
3. Fringe or Leather Booties – They go with skirts, jeans, dresses and yep – denim shorts for a warm evening out at the Katy Trail Ice House. I see leather and faux leather booties everywhere (especially in brown natural tones.)
4. Dallas Hair & Handbags! – There are SO many LV handbags in Dallas (mainly brown neutral tones) especially this tote. Now let’s talk Dallas hair! I can’t even keep up with the gorgeous hair here. It seems there are high-end hair salons on every corner and I see women who look like they walked out of a Pantene Pro-V commercial daily.
<DETAILS by Dale> jeans & top (last summer) – Zara (I can’t wait for Zara coming to Dallas this winter at the Northpark Mall) / shoes – Report / handbag – Louis Vuitton (first seen here) / lipstick (Rebel by Mac) / Bianca cuff in rose gold – Kendra Scott
Hope you’re having a great week! If you live in the DFW area, what are some of your favorite trends this Fall?
