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
Motives by Loren Ridinger Tiffiny has worked with Lala Anthony, Ivanka Trump, Kim Kardashian, and many others. I can’t wait to bring all my readers the tips, tricks and story of Mrs Tiffiny.
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 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.
