Hello, Sunshine

Summer is here, and there’s nothing but sunshine in the forecast, which has us in the mood for bright finds in Pantone Custard !

Read on to see where you can shop Custard finds at The Shops at Park Lane! Jessica Simpson Raj Fringe... Read More

Grillfest Style

“You bring your appetite, we’ll being the meat.” That’s the tagline for D Magazine’s Grillfest 2015 , which just so happens to be going down in our newly completed urban park, The Park at The Shops at Park Lane, on May 2! Who’s bringing the meat exactly? Well, that would be Dallas’ most noteworthy chefs, including names like John Tesar and Kent Rathbun.

Herbal Essence

Easter is right around the corner, and we always picture ourselves in shades of soft pastels for the big day, our favorite among them being lavender. Unlike pastel blue and pink, lavender steers clear of any going-to-a-baby-shower undertones. This season, Pantone has deemed Lavender Herb to be the “It” pastel. A bit warmer than lavender shades of springs past, Lavender Herb feels more sophisticated than its cooler counterparts. We’ll be pairing it with neutrals like Toasted Almond ... Read More

Dive In

Maybe it’s because Spring Break is underway; maybe it’s because we can’t stop thinking about catching some rays by a gleaming blue swimming pool. Either way, fashionable finds in Pantone Scuba Blue seem to be calling our names from the racks! The shade made Pantone’s list of the top fashion colors for spring, and we can see why. It reminds us of diving into a clear blue pool, not to mention it’s totally gorgeous. We’ll be pairing it with orange, lilac and sandy neutrals in the season... Read More

Bridging the Gap

When late February begins to melt into early March, we encounter what we like to think of as "tween" weather. Yes, the term typically reserved for 11 - 13 year-olds applies perfectly to this transitional weather—the kind where it's 50 degrees when you wake up in the morning and 70+ degrees when you leave the office. It's for these days that we like to use a little styling trick called "bridging the gap," which comes down to one simple tip: inject your look with the perfect not-too-winter,... Read More

Mint Condition

This glorious Dallas weather has us rocking flip-flops in February—in February! And quite frankly, it’s also got us in the mood to start filling our closets with spring hues (move over, black! Out of the way, charcoal!). At the moment, we’re really feeling Pantone Lucite Green , a minty-mossy-sea-foamy confection of a color. If we had to define exactly what “spring” green is, it would be this shade, which is probably why Pantone has named it among the top colors for spring.   For... Read More

Shift in to Neutral

Late January tends to be when the novelty of our winter wardrobes starts to fade. What’s a girl to do? Look forward, of course! This is when we start thinking about how we’re going to transition our closets into spring, but we’re not ready for bold florals and pops of pastel—yet. Now is the time to consider neutrals like Toasted Almond , one of Pantone’s hot shades for spring 2015 . Paler than black or gray, but softer than brown and tan, this shade is the perfect way to transition your... Read More

Brrr!-ing on the Aquamarine

This weather has us singing “Ice, Ice, Baby.” Yes, another polar vortex is in full effect, and it has us in the mood to wear icy shades. Conveniently, Aquamarine has been named among the top ten colors in women’s fashion for 2015 by Pantone, so we’ll be able rock the hue now all the way through summer, which means more bang for our buck. Our inspiration is Amy Adams at the 2015 Golden Globes (okay, fine, and maybe Princess Elsa, too). Check out our top Aquamarine picks spotted at The... Read More

Gray Area

It’s been a while since gray has stolen the spotlight from black, camel or even navy as fall/winter’s must-have neutral, but it’s back with a vengeance this season. We can’t help but attribute the shift to a certain global pop culture phenomenon (ahem, “50 Shades,” we’re looking at you).  Softer than black, and cooler than camel, we’re loving the resurgence of gray, whose popularity on the fall runways earned it a spot on Pantone’s Fall 2014 Fashion Color Report .  Read on to see...

We’re finally starting to feel the first hint of fall here in North Texas (okay, it’s not exactly brisk outside, but hopefully we’ve seen the last of the triple-digit days), and the change of season has us in the mood for a new fitness routine.  Just in time for the new season, Studio 6 has opened its doors on the upper deck near Whole Foods.

Why Shopping Online Isn’t Always Best

If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve probably fallen under the spell of websites like Amazon.com and Zappos.com, where you can shop for clothing, shoes, and other accessories at discounted prices without ever leaving your home. It sounds like a deal you can’t refuse, doesn’t it? Well, in a lot of cases, it’s actually not much (if any) cheaper to do your shopping online, and it’s a lot riskier, too. First and foremost, if you’re a smart shopper, you’ll know when to look for coupons, weekly... Read More

Catch a Case of the Blues

If you’re anything like us, you've been patiently waiting to add a little “fall” to your wardrobe. Color is the easiest way to work a seasonal update into your closet (even if the weather hasn't exactly caught up to your sartorial state of mind). It’s at this point each season when we turn to Pantone, the global authority on color, to see which shades are going to be big—make that huge—in the season ahead.

How to Shop for the Perfect Perfume

Buying perfume is one of the most personal shopping experiences you’ll ever have. Unlike some clothing and accessories, there is never a “one size fits all” for fragrances. The same perfume on 5 different people will have 5 different fragrances. It will smell deliciously sultry on one woman, light and airy on another, and overpowering to the point of being noxious on another.  That’s why you can never just buy a perfume for its packaging or brand name, and you should never purchase a...

Store Sales Are Better Than a Tax-Free Weekend

Every year, when it comes time for back-to-school shopping, shoppers all over the country go crazy for the “tax-free” weekend. Now, we’re not ones to throw away a discount, but the smart shopper will look for the best discount possible. Have you ever noticed, for example, that some stores will have sales during the week or a week or two after the tax-free weekend? Sales taxes throughout the United States range from 6-11%. When you look at purchases like houses, cars, or motorcycles, you can... Read More
