Lover Mixes Dance and Fashion

Posted by    |    August 15th, 2011 at 6:30 pm

Australian clothier, Lover, reminds me of a mix between The Row and Anthropologie. You’ve probably never heard of the label-right now they only ship within their country.  Seeing the obvious correlation between art and fashion, the clothes they create are poised for the constant day to day movements we make and the need for them to be striking statements. What would be the best way to demonstrate these elements for fashionistas? With a clever video starring Amber Scott, Senior Artist with The Australian Ballet as their model, of course.  You can enjoy the beauty of their collection and relive your dreams of being a ballerina through their collection launch video, A Dance For One.

All the Hip Chix Will Be There: Launch Party This Friday

Posted by    |    August 4th, 2011 at 1:56 am

Here at You Plus Dallas, we have an on-going love affair with denim.  We wear it to the office, we shoot in it, we write style blogs about it. (Ahem.)  So, it’s no surprise that we became big-time fans of The Blues Jean Bar a while back, and can’t get enough of their amazing selection and hard-to-find designers that make our derrieres look dashing.  Fast forward to this Friday, August 5th, and you can be present for the launch of another soon-to-be swoon-worthy denim brand, Hip Chix Denim.  Soft, flattering, and created by local designers Aimee Miller and Megan Carrecker, these jeans are a must try.  Meet the lovely designers in person, find the fit that makes you feel like a million from 6:30-8:30 at the Blues Jean Bar in Snider Plaza.
