Two years ago I travelled to India with Ben, so yes this post is way overdue! I am getting ready for another amazing trip, so I thought I would finally share a few great photos that I took from India. For me, vacations are about exploring the world, not sunbathing by the pool, very bad for your skin, and boring! The best part of this trip was the very beginning—meeting my IT team in Delhi, and finally putting a face to the name after six years of communicating via email. After visiting the Delhi office, Ben and I began our whirlwind trip, named by travelers as The Golden Triangle—we travelled from Delhi, to Agra, across to Jaipur, and back to Delhi.
Last week, Hotel ZaZa and The Sessions hosted SXSW indie musician Emily Wolfe poolside at a private listening lounge. The Sessions partners CJ Vinson and Lauren Bucherie created the Austin-based production company to fuel their passion for the music industry by discovering emerging talent, and Miss Wolfe, their current protégé certainly tantalized guest.
Jamming her new EP, Mechanical Hands, guests Benji and Wren Homsey, Kristie and Tom Hoitsma, Missy Rogers, Nadia Dabbakeh, Haley Schultheis, Stephanie Quadri, and Sabrina Dee witnessed the raw talent as she rocked her guitar and the evening away.
Pajamas—my new obsession, well pajama-style pants at least. I’ll leave the full throttle pajama party mood to Marc Jacobs, but show me loose fitting, printed drawstring pants, and I’m interested. I recently made three purchases—camouflage at Haute Hippie, black and white swirl print at DVF, and all black tuxedo style at Vince. I’ve definitely got comfort on my mind; add a couple of layers, long shirt, t-shirt and a cropped jacket—easy breezy.
The challenge—to reinvent the iconic, classic, little black dress, and the winners: five lucky students. The House of Blues, set a stylish tone on Wednesday, May 22nd as LBDD founder Jeff Shell and his team produced the Dallas edition of Texas’ largest fashion design competition—Little Black Dress Designer.
Presented by Audi, the evening commenced with a well-edited short film showcased on the backdrop of the runway, that featured students, judges and the selection process of choosing five lucky winners from the ten students that participated—filmed at Hotel Adolphus on April 8.
The glass lobby of the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall gleamed last night for the 2013 CFDA awards—underwritten quite brightly by Swarovski. With red carpet arrivals of stylish proportions, guests posed against the red step and repeat, which told a bold story for those in black, white and red.
Did you know, every year Fashion Group International of Dallas hosts the longest running and largest fashion career event of its kind in the country? This year on April 12 over 1,200 students from more than 44 colleges and universities across 12 states, participated in the Fashion Group International of Dallas, 45th Annual Career Day to compete for scholarships of over $40,000.
The 2013 co-chairs Rosanne Hart, Marilyn Stewart and Rhonda Sargent Chambers worked tirelessly all year, and the event was a huge success thanks to presenting sponsor J.C. Penneyand the scholarships sponsors that awarded the deserving students. The daylong event, after months of planning, and preparing by all, ended with a runway fashion show finale that showcased performances by students from the Dallas Black Dance Theatre and honored the winning students—produced by RSC Productions.
