The Perfect Ballerina Bun: How To DIY

Posted by    |    May 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 am

Ballerina buns are so pretty and chic, but they always looks like a whipping to master yourself.  Long-haired chicks like me often get lazy when it comes to up-dos and simply wear it in the same style over and over out of habit.  Lazy hair lasses, fret no more!  I have the key to perfect ballerina buns (for your head, that is,) that will work for your wedding day, your work-out, or just for those hot summer nights.

Posted by    |    April 9th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

If you saw our fun video on Facelogic Spa, then you know it is an innovative day spa that offers luxurious skin care services and coveted skin care products at an affordable price. Quality treatments such as facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasions, massage, airbrush tan, makeup makeovers and waxing are available in addition to four specialty skin care product lines, cosmetics and varietal spa gift items. Another great thing about the spa is they also have a special place in their heart for helping women rejoin the workforce in style.

Facelogic Spa in Highland Park hosts The Baubles & Bags Celebration where the entry fee is a compassion for women in need and a purse or piece of jewelry. On April 18th, guests can bring a new or used professional style purse or piece of jewelry to be donated to the clients of Attitudes & Attire™.  Guest who bring one of these two items, or a $5 cash donation, can redeem a $29 Glam Microdermabrasion Treatment voucher ($79 value) during the event or at any other time.  Now, I don’t know about you, but I have plenty of lovely handbags that I don’t carry much anymore that I’d gladly trade for that! So ladies, clean out those closets while you’re spring cleaning and use those handbags for a very good cause. (more…)

Vintage is hotter right now than guessing Jessica Simpson’s due date, so if you’re into it and want more, your big chance is coming up this Friday.
From 3:00-8:00 p.m., 50 vendors from Texas and around the country will offer vintage jewelry and clothing dating all the way back from the turn of the century to a decade you were (probably) born in. Local dealers like Janet Swartz (woodlandfarmsantiques.com) will be there selling their wares to give your life a little more of that Anthropologie feel and our planet a little more green by recycling old favorites.

The admission? No sweat, just $6 per person.

Cost Vs. Benefit: Secrets to Save in 2012

Posted by    |    January 3rd, 2012 at 7:00 am

Dallas is a city known for having expensive taste and high style, but not everyone has a Black American Express card to play along.  (Or the Centurion card, for those in the know.)  How do so many people have such fine things?  Are they all just $30,000 millionaires?  Though the affluent abound in our abode, the real secret is cost vs. benefit.  When you know this rule, you too can acquire the upscale brands you love, without racking up credit card debt to do so.

What is cost vs. benefit?  It’s merely taking the price of an item and determining what the cost averages out to “per use” or “per wear”.  If you love these Yves St. Laurent leopard-print calf hair pumps, then take their price ($577.50 on sale,) and divide that cost by how often you project you will wear them.  If you wear these shoes once a month this year, then your “true” cost of these shoes is around $48.  Sure, it’s a large up-front investment, but you won’t need to buy several cheaper pairs of shoes or keep replacing shoes that aren’t made as well.

Kick off your 2012 In Style: A Dinner Party Perfectly Posh for a Purpose!

Posted by    |    January 2nd, 2012 at 11:18 am

III Forks Restaurant is the epitome of deliciousness, so when I heard they were partnering with the  North Texas Food Bank for a good cause, my ears perked up. Girl About Town TV will host its first quarter dinner party there on January 28th starting at 6pm, encouraging socially successful women of Dallas to dine in style and kick off their new year with a healthy dose of Fashion Philanthropy.

In case you don’t know, the NTFB supports the nutritional needs of children, families and seniors through education, advocacy and strategic partnerships. In 2011, the NTFB provided access to nearly 33 million nutritious meals. Each month agency pantries distribute food to more than 53,000 families and on-site meal programs serve 435,000 meals/snacks. That’s certainly something to feel good about, so who wouldn’t want to be a part of something this special?

In October, Raygon Fields hosted her first Girls Bite Out event for the Houston Food Bank at Ruggles Grill. The effort raised close to
$1000 for the food bank and enlisted the help of 50 new volunteers for the adopted charity. Eager to take this endeavor to the next level,Girls Bite Out is coming to Dallas! Learn more http://girlabouttowntv.com/girls-bite-out-2012-dfw
