Fall Sales for Columbus Day

Well October just began and already there are sales out there for fall.  We like the fall sale that is up to 40% off coats at Saks Off Fifth…and the sales at Club Monaco and BodenUSA.   Here are a few that are good weight for your early fall chilly days…

White Leather Present

Thank you Canary Dallas for bringing in this white leather skirt. It is so very comfortable and actually lightweight. We are always looking for a silk blouse or shell and this one from Abi Ferrin (on sale) makes my day. The Akola Project has just opened its storefront in Deep Ellum in Dallas. [...]

Navy Days

Navy is a great color for many folks.. It can be paired with brights as here, or toned down with black. Many thanks to Erin at the Jimmy Choo store in Dallas for helping me choose bright shoes for a plain dress. I would have probably just tried to match the dress, but she convinced me that pink is [...]

J. McLaughlin Dallas Attire

We are so lucky to have the J. McLaughlin store in Dallas!. Their wearable apparel is great, with both solids and prints. I love the Catalina Cloth, which is very travel friendly. Julie and Tina have both helped me shop in the Preston Center Dallas location. Their scarves have become some of my favorites.. Maybe this dress will go [...]

This is an everyday outfit that you can wear early fall now and later with a blazer and boots. Boden USA makes many bright tops and the length of this one suits for the skinny jeans from AG (one of my favorite brands). The sunglasses are made from a company in New Orleans, Krewe du [...]

Canary Dallas and Marissa Webb

We are delighted to tell you about the Canary Dallas  with its many unique designers. Molly, Grace, and Merry all make shopping at this boutique really fun. They are fun to follow on instagram too, with pictures of some of their new items. Marissa Webb is the designer of this fall dress.

Dress::

Nili Lotan for kids and adults

Nili Lotan has some things that are my favorite for now and for later fall. Their materials are divine, with the cotton of this dress being very lightweight (perhaps for an early fall football game). The children’s dress reminds me of one my sisters and I wore as children..
Available at J. Crew, Steven Alan, [...]
