Ladies, Strap on those Sky High Heels, the Stiletto Strut is Back!

Posted by    |    March 1st, 2013 at 4:53 pm

If a woman were to have only one pair of shoes in her closet (gasp!), it should be a pair of killer stilettos. Preferably platforms, according to Senior Vice President and Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus Ken Downing. “The platform has transcended trend, because when you get three or four extra inches, who wants to give it up?”

The 6th annual Neiman Marcus’ Stiletto Strut is absolutely about rocking a pair of sky highs, but it’s also about raising awareness and money for The Family Place, an organization aspiring to end family violence since 1978. The stylish event brings hundreds of gals to the streets of downtown Dallas for a sassy walk down Main Street. The event originated in Dallas, but stilettos are now being strutted all across the country.

Dallas Stars Host Ladies’ Night

Posted by    |    February 9th, 2012 at 10:10 am

I always take advantage of opportunities where my inner tomboy and flirty girlish sides get to come out to play together. There is one of such opportunities happening this month, Dallas Stars’ Ladies Night.

On February 23, round up all your gal-pals for a unique experience at the American Airlines Center. A $70 ticket gets you behind-the-scenes with a tour of the Dallas Stars’ locker room, then takes you out onto the ice for an unheard of Hockey 101 tutorial with former players. It wouldn’t be a true ladies’ night without some vino running through our veins, right? After cooling off on the ice, warm up with wine tasting and a fabulous fashion show. In addition to these perks, your ticket will also reserve two plaza tickets to the Stars vs. San Jose Sharks game on March 8.

While the festivities are taking place, crazy door prizes are being given away all night. Would you like to cruise around town all weekend in an Audi? Or have a lunch date with Adam Burish (sigh, yes please)? Count me in.

This exclusive event has limited space, so registration is encouraged. Check out www.DallasStars.com/HEELS or call 214-387-5646 for more information.

Abi Ferrin Brand Launch Party and Fashion Show

Posted by    |    February 18th, 2011 at 5:27 pm

As long as there is a mandatory need for society to be clothed, there will be a high demand for fashion designers. Fortunately, Dallas has a fabulous designer all it’s own to clothe us in luxury and keep us stylish. If you’re wondering why there has recently been an influx of in-the-know women to Nordstrom at NorthPark Center, it’s primarily because Dallas designer Abi Ferrin has recently received some exciting news: the exclusive department store has picked up her fun, flirty fashions.

Atop the 2nd floor, the Savvy department houses Ferrin’s designs based on Super Bowl team colors, as well as hersignature 5-way dresses, hand painted 5-way tops and hand painted pattern dresses, straight out of her South Side on Lamar studio.

Ferrin’s brand launch party was held at Nordstrom earlier this month; her name featured around the room, models and NFL wives alike wearing her fashions. The launch party was one of Ferrin’s many exciting events leading up to her Off The Field Players’ Wives Association fashion show. (more…)

The Fashionistas cure the post-holiday blues

Posted by    |    January 19th, 2011 at 6:05 pm

Well, it’s official. The holiday parties have long since ceased for the season, and I have nowhere to wear my fancy dresses, nor do I have an excuse to get really dolled up and twirl around in front of obvious gawkers. For a girl, this is truly a tragedy.

But this is Dallas we’re talking about, and I needn’t wallow in sadness for long. The Fashionistas are hosting a party to unveil their 2011 plans. ZOUK will host the event, where The Fashionistas will announce the spring runway show designer, and celebrate their members, including Executive Director, Megan McQuery.

The New Member Party will take place Thursday, January 20th from 6:30pm-9:30pm
