Piermarini Boutique, famed for its’ shopping in your best friends closet experience, will be undergoing its seasonal transformation, from wintery woolens to a sophisticated and lively spring collection.

Abi Ferrin and the NFL Wives: Star Studded Combo

Posted by    |    September 27th, 2011 at 2:48 pm

This is Dallas; one minute it’s 100 degrees and the next it’s below freezing. That’s why it really didn’t shock anyone when five inches of snow and ice showed up last February 4th when famed designer Abi Ferrin and more than 30 NFL players’ wives took to the runway at the Fairmont Hotel.
The illustrious hotel was host to The 10th Annual Off The Field Players’ Wives Awards Banquet and Fashion Show in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This cause is especially dear to the hearts of parents everywhere, since St. Jude  means no family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance and families without insurance are never asked to pay.
Those who were lucky enough to attend this glamorous event got to rub elbows with Michelle Witten (wife of Jason Witten), Sherice Brown (wife of Tim Brown), and Romonda Jordan (wife of Randy Jordan). The always stunning Pat Smith (wife of Emmitt Smith) helped hand out several prestigious awards and proclaimed Abi Ferrin as one of her go-to designers when she wants to look her best.

Taking their turn in the spotlight, NFL players’ wives commanded the catwalk in Abi’s latest. See the uncut version of the show here:

What many may not know is women rescued from the sex trade in Nepal and Cambodia are an integral part of helping create Abi’s special line of USA-made garments. Employing people like these women and contributing funds to organizations who help these women are part of Ferrin’s mission, and in turn becomes a beautiful by-product of each purchase of her creations.
As a special surprise, the NFL husbands walked with their wives’ on the runway, as well as Miss USA 2010, Rima Fakih, and Miss Teen USA, Kamie Crawford.

As if that parade of stars wasn’t enough, a live and silent auction featured a rare 6.32 carat pink diamond donated by Worldwide Diamond Ventures and exclusively set by Olschwanger Designs.

To say this event was a success is an understatement; it cemented Abi Ferrin as an icon for glamorous women from all walks of life and generated badly needed proceeds for the nation’s top children’s cancer hospital.  Fashion and purpose…it’s a beautiful combination.

Wear This….Paper Crown

Posted by    |    September 2nd, 2011 at 7:07 am

Lauren Conrad’s new upscale line, Paper Crown is just gorgeous…as evidenced above with that wispy, ethereal dress that whispers “Romance me!” (The romance maker is called the Ella Gown, seen here in Nude.) At this very moment, you can only find Paper Crown in one boutique in Texas, the Aquarius Boutique in San Antonio. Bummer, I know.  But Nordstrom, who carries our local fav Abi Ferrin’s line nationally now, has Paper Crown online. Won’t you join me in emailing Nordy’s to ask them to carry the line in-store?  Sometimes it’s just waaaaay more fun to try on beautiful things and imagine where you’re going to wear it while surrounded by mirrors and elevator music.  I’m just sayin’.

What do you get when two talented people in the fashion world join forces for the betterment of women everywhere? Happy ladies, let me tell you!

Abi Ferrin and John Piermarini have come out with a new line called Abi & John for basic tanks and dresses that are sold in John’s Uptown Dallas Boutique. The two saw a deficit in the marketplace of wearable, age appropriate slip dresses, so they teamed up to solve this harrowing problem. These soft basics are a must have for every woman’s wardrobe, regardless of your age or style.

The talented 20-year-old John Piermarini opened Piermarini Boutique to showcase labels and designers you won’t see anywhere else in town. These comfortable necessities found at Piermarini Boutique are for any woman’s wardrobe, they even give a little needed stretch! Can I get an Amen? With the many styles of tops and dresses nowadays that have such sheer fabric, the ladies are left out to dry when it comes to what goes UNDER these clothes. Thank you, Abi and John, for thinking of us, and making anything wearable!
