The Farm House Fresh product line  has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and countless magazines including Redbook, Elle,  and InStyle.  One whiff of their vanilla scented  products, and you’ll want to dig in with a spoon. This companies line of  products claim to  have the freshest ingredients on the farm and I am a believer.  I was worried the Honey Hazel Glaze would be sticky and messy, instead it reminded me of the honey without all the mess. My favorite product is the  Fluffy Bunny Cream which is Paraben & Sulfate free. Most of their products also get the Vegan seal of approval and make great gifts for love ones.  I found this amazing product line at the ZaSpa at Hotel ZaZa in Dallas, but you can purchase this line straight from their website. If you happen to live in Dallas or Houston just ask the  spa receptionist for a few samples of the Farm House Fresh line.

Katy Messersmith first arrived on the fashion scene in 2002 quite by accident. While volunteering at a women’s prenatal clinic in Africa, her life took a dramatic turn.

Her luggage was lost and she was soon collaborating with local seamstresses.  She launched an apparel business in one room of her house nine years ago. Soon, it took over the entire house and the garage, so she rented an apartment and moved out. Her designs are youthful, and edgy with vibrant colors. My favorite dress from the summer collection is  the Zig Zag Halter Maxi dress.

The light weight dresses are made from the highest quality of fabrics, and flatter every figure.  The dresses are perfect for traveling, shopping, or even a night on the town. The lifestyle brand includes children’s apparel, women’s and men’s clothing, and small accessories. The label is sold in more than 10,000 boutiques across the nation and at a price that fits into every fashionistas budget. Katy Messersmith also gives back in big ways through organizations like Dress for Success Dallas, and designing Power Pink tee shirts for breast cancer

Abi Ferrin, Dallas Texas
Favorite Item: Nicki 5 -Ways Dress $258
Where to Buy: Nordstrom, The Ritz Carlton Spa Dallas, Stanley Korshak, Malouf’s in Southlake, and online at Abi Ferrin 
 

My stylist at Stanley Korshak introduced me to designer Abi Ferrin two years ago, and her easy breezy style of dressing. She’s a role model; who won a fashion contest, and turned her dreams into reality. It sounds like a fairy tale, but I am sure it involved lot’s of hard work.   I now proudly own three  of her dresses, and couldn’t imagine my life without them. I could post pictures of myself photographed in her  lovely dress many times, but I want bore you with any of those

. I will just say every time I wear her dresses  people often think I am wearing a brand new dress. Her collection is more expensive than the brands above, but totally worth the investment.

The collection features form flattering dresses, tops, skirts, and pants, all made using the finest fabrications. They are lightweight and never seem to wrinkle.  Her motto, Fashion with Freedom and Purpose, is the driving force behind her brand.  Abi Ferrin started the Freedom Project which empowers and employs women rescued from the sex trade in Nepal by incorporating their hand-made buttons into her designs.    We salute you Abi Ferrin for changing the world one outfit at a time.
