Making Dallas Even Better

Sea Breeze

After reading Margherita Missoni’s beauty secrets I found myself wanting to drink sheep-based dairy products and wear ethereal dresses barefoot along the beach. Granted, I’m not in my twenties or have an Italian countryside sun-kissed complexion, but we can strive, right? So, first things first. I’m revamping my wardrobe and clearing my closet of all those five year old items that have never been worn. I’m investing in a ridiculously distressed pair of jeans to wear with my gorgeous new beachy sequined clutch that so kindly arrived in the mail. And then I’ll get a Tom Ford Carnal Red pedicure so that I can dance around barefoot and beautiful!

2011’s StyleSheet Favorites

Here’s the roundup! StyleSheet revisits the most memorable pictures of the 2011 Dallas fashion scene.



Silks, Matka, And Crepe/Presenting Prashe:  For all of your eclectic fancies, nobody puts on a show like Jan Strimple and The Fashionistas.


Diffa:  Maybe one of the most creative and inspiring fashion events of the year, DIFFA’s Dramatically Different was truly a sight to behold.



SMU Homecoming:  Where boater’s hats and white after labor day are always in vogue, the Hilltop gets it right!


Fashion’s Night Out:  The New Year’s Eve of New York fashion week. And Dallas rocked it better than any other city!



Elizabeth Anyaa:   The atmosphere at The Trinity River Audubon Center set a magical tone for Elizabeth Anyaa’s fall collection runway show.


FrontRow Live:  Not to toot our own horn, but very few people can throw a legendary party like D Magazine.



House Of Plates Part 2:  Who would have thought to throw a house party in Oak Cliff at the El Sibil with complimentary valet, food trucks, the Vintagemobile, Christopher Wray’s retro-soul sounds, and pop-up fashion shows? House Of Plates did just that and was one of our personal favorite parties of the year.


Derby Days:  Gourmet grits with sloppy joe? Sounds superb at Arlington Hall for the official Kentucky Derby soirée. Gorgeous vintage hats, reminiscent of the bokeh-filled 80’s, turned heads and celebrated the extravagance of the royals.



Mikyung:  No one rocks skinny jeans, a Porsche, and a prince named Romeo like Mikyung.


Jean Paul Gaultier:  Next to Khloe Kardashian, maybe the coolest person to come to Dallas! And his beautiful French dialect resurrected my need to wear la marinière sailor tees.
