A flock of fashion patron’s descended upon the Hilton Anatole’s Gossip Bar last week for the Fashion Group International of Dallas 2013 Rising Stars announcement party, and black seemed to be the shade de rigueur, no surprise there—yours truly included!
It’s a HUGE birthday celebration for the Dallas Contemporary in November, now housed at the Glass Street location in the trendy Design District for about three years. So for those who think DC is new, guess what, it’s celebrating 35 amazing years with a non-stop party: over 35 hours of exhibitions, learning programs and community events with 35 local artists. This is no snooze-a-thon!
Completely solicited…yes! I am on the board for the Dallas Contemporary, and of course I am going to share details on this special event. Art is for everyone—and Peter Doroshenko and the DC team are busy creating a masterpiece of contemporary programming just for you.
A melting pot of International style hit The Plaza at Preston Center, Wednesday evening with Kira Plastinina celebrating the opening of her flagship boutique: LUBLU by Kira Plastinina—LUBLU means “I love” in Russian.
The young, talented Russian import, and SMU grad shared the evening with hosts: Nasiba Adilova, Anna-Sophia van Zweden, Jessica Nowitski, Laura Noble, Bradley Agather Means, Tanya Foster, and Lucy Wrubel—sans turntable, that rocking task was bequeathed to New York DJ Hannah Bronfman.
For the last five years, I’ve supported the crazy shopping frenzy that happens throughout Dallas and the metroplex every Fall, and now that PinkMemo rests deep within the Internet cemetery, I’ve decided that I will continue to support my favorite charities—especially Partners Card that benefits The Family Place.
I couldn’t attend this event, but I am happy to share photos of all the charitable peeps and friends that celebrated the 21st Annual Partners Card kick-off party at Galleria Dallas on June 5th. This year, co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman will face the challenge of beating last year’s $1,115,854.00 achievement, no small feat I might add.
Copious amounts of champagne overflowed at the Veuve Clicquot bar on the terrace of Arlington Hall to celebrate Derby Day at Lee Park in May. The philanthropic professionals at Lee Park Junior Conservancy certainly know how to great dressed every year for the annual Day at the Races—this year themed “Run for the Roses” was a tribute to honorary chair Caroline Rose Hunt.
Men arrived in dapper suits and donned hats and bowties, and the ladies looked lovely in summer dresses and hats of all proportions, especially fascinating fascinators. I attended as a “Best Hat” judge, along with my fellow judge cohorts Blake Stephenson, Rachael Abrams, and Cynthia Smoot, and mingled through the crowd critiquing each stylish ensemble.
I am addicted to the song Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Ray, so I had to add my little ditty’ness to the title—a perfect summer soundtrack!
With summer comes, the joys of vacation, the sun, traveling, oh and heat—especially if you’re staying at home in Dallas. This July the Spa at Equinox Highland Park has launched the Equinox Blueberry Regenerating Facial—perfect for hydrating hot tired skin. I haven’t tried it yet, but since I’m a member at the Preston Hollow location I might have to venture south to Oak Lawn for a little facial sustenance.
