Here are two restaurants I love, Malaga Tapas & Bar in Austin and Samar by Stephan Pyles in Dallas. Both equally exotic and delicious, they’re perfect downtown hot spots to dine and shine in your most fashionable ensemble. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Samar, so the menu may have changed, but I’m sure whatever they’re serving is phenomenal. Malaga favorite: breaded and fried goat cheese drizzled with honey. It will change your life. Samar favorite: Potatoes and chorizo with egg. So good, it’s on the lunch and dinner menu. Enjoy!

I’m still in the middle of surviving SXSW and setting up an online vintage store with my friend (yay! super excited about this project), but wanted to share a few things that came across my desk recently.
March 16-17 in Grapevine Convention Center, 1209 South Main Street, Grapevine TX
Friday 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
(advance tickets $20, $8 at the door)
I missed the Austin Vintage Glamporium back in October and I’m thrilled to see that another vintage event is happening in Grapevine. I believe Vintage Martini will be one of the many fab vendors, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about them.
Mar 17-18 – Austin – Palmer Events Center
Austin Show Hours — Saturday 10a – 5p Sunday 11a – 5p Early Shopper Hours — Saturday 8:30a-10a Early Shopper Fee-$10
I’ve gotten mixed reviews about the City-Wide Garage Sale- sometimes there are great finds and sometimes there doesn’t seem to be much variety. But all in all, I think it’s worth the $5 bucks to go inside and see if you can find that special piece. I found an incredible gold and coral brooch the last time I went and got a great bargain on it!

Dolly Python…just by the name, you know you’re in for something unusual and amazing. In the same vein of vintage wackiness as Austin’s Uncommon Objects, Dolly Python is a mecca of rare clothing, accessories, furniture and other fun tchotchkes. Located at 1916 N. Haskell Avenue in Dallas, Dolly does have one thing that Uncommon Objects doesn’t: Melinda the psychic. Every Saturday she does palm readings- $15 for 15 minutes. So while at Dolly Python, you can shop for things from the past and get a glimpse of your future.

We were at Sunday’s Mavs Game, which was also the debut of reality stars Lamar and Khloe Kardashian Odom in Dallas. We thought it odd that Khloe was not at the game, but as it turns out she was in an area under our suite. So no wonder we never saw her!
If you’d like to meet Khloe and embrace the Holiday’s spirit of giving, she is also having a toy drive at City Hall Plaza tomorrow, Wednesday, December 21, from 12pm – 2pm to benefit Children’s Hospital of Dallas.

This week marked a momentous occasion for thread-conscious fashion enthusiasts in Texas… our H&M has finally arrived.
If you’re like me, chances are you’ve been waiting years for H&M to move to Texas. And while it’s been a long time coming, I can tell you, it was worth the wait. (Even socialite Gregg Asher made an appearance.)
So, why Dallas, why now? Well as it turns out, H&M has been eyeing the Dallas market since it opened its first U.S. location (New York) in 2000. And the clothing giant has plans to expand to even more Texas markets in the future, said spokeswoman Jennifer Ward.
The two-story, 24,000 square-foot shopping mecca is brimming with a variety of styles to suit every discriminating Dallasites’ taste, at any age (teens, adults and children) and for any occasion (casual, business, and party wear). Fortunately, H&M will continue its practice of collaborating with the world’s hottest designers to bring us high-end, yet affordable, clothing. (BTW, I died for the Lanvin collection.)
After all, high-end, yet affordable, fashion is what H&M is known for and what sets it apart from other retailers world-wide. Accessories start as low as $5, denim as low as $15 and dresses $30…you can spend less than $100 for an entire ensemble and still look like you stepped off the runway. This is the magic of H&M, which I witnessed firsthand during its Papercity Preview Party this week.
So without further adieu, I present to you our H&M.
