Thursday Wrap Up: Bow Ties, Celebrities, and Marquee Grill

Another crazy Thursday in the fashion world of Big D. Other Thursday’s have been busier, but this Thursday was the most interesting. I met some of the most amazing and intriguing people. I have met and interviewed celebrities such as , Tyra Banks, Designer Carmen Marc Valvo,  Mark Cuban,  Dallas Cowboys Player Miles Austin, and First lady Michelle Obama. All unique and interesting, but this Thursday I had the pleasure of meeting some very down to earth and equally amazing people.

First up: Tiffiny Team Motives Interview: I traveled through loads of suburban traffic to  interview the extraordinary  Mrs. Tiffiny from

Next up: Modern Luxury Men of Style @ Neiman Marcus Downtown Dallas– I stayed with Tiffiny from Team Motives a bit too long, and was running fashionable late. I spotted LeeAnne Locken, Hamilton Sneed, and Cynthia Smoot partying and eyeing the tuna tartar. I was surprised how many people where actually eating food. Thanks to Marjon Zabihi ( PR Manager for Neiman Marcus Downtown Dallas) for having some delicious bites. Although I enjoyed the luscious cocktails, a little bit of beef goes a long way.

While at the party I spotted the lovely Courtney Kerr, Allison Volk and crew, and many other  friends.  My favorite DJ was mixing the tunes and the crowd was simply stunning. Being a party that focused on men’s fashions I wanted my look to be men’s wear inspired. I contemplated all week on wearing a bow tie, tux, or dress. I finally settled on  designer Ann Taylor with a twist.

While at the party I ran into the King of Bow Ties Edward Armah. I was just reading about his story in Neiman Marcus Daily last month. He is charming and funny.  I love bow ties and have always been intrigued with their sexy yet classic look. “Don’t worry I have been showing men how to tie these all night, says Armah.”  I felt like a cute playboy bunny after being outfitted by Mr. Edward’s with one of his signature four-way ties. Edward has worked with almost everyone in the business, and is now selling his ties online and at Neiman Marcus stores. I can’t wait to bring you more juicy details about this stylish man.

Anne Fontaine Highland Park, Dallas: Glam in the City– Who knew Highland Park Village was the place to be on a Thursday night? The patios were filled with hungry guests and parking was nearly impossible. The Anne Fontaine store was full of beautiful people with beautiful clothing. The store is a classic  french store with hints black and white  luxury. I felt as if I had just stepped into a Parisian boutique. The visual manager deserves an A  for  the beautiful styling of the store. Some pieces where pricey, but as I continue to look around I found options in every price range. Of course the store was closing, but I can’t go back for some power shopping!!!

Marquee Grill Dallas, Tx

Marquee Grill in Highland Park Village: Most Celebrity Chefs aren’t in their restaurant’s anymore. We want even mention that Top Chef  finalist, who had a restaurant in Fort Worth, but was always in CALIFORNIA.  I wonder how she’s doing?  Seems Chef Tre Wilcox knows he needs to be in his restaurant. We caught up for a few minutes and then off to meet my party. I spotted Hamilton Sneed and friends, and thus the charity conversations began. Hamilton talks so much about his  signature cocktail  that I have been dying to try one. It was refreshing and delicious.  

Back to Marquee Grill, I love the contrast between day and night at Marquee Grill. The main dining room is white and plush,and the bar is dark with a sexy atmosphere. My guest and I tried the buffalo sliders, sushi and the fries. I must admit I ate way too many fries. Whether you go for drinks or dinner, Marquee Grill is the perfect place for a night-cap.
