The stars at night are big and bright..(clap clap clap clap) deep in the heart of Texas
Also, no trip to Dallas is complete without some shopping. It is the home of Neiman Marcus- to be sure. I grew up in Oklahoma, so when I was a little girl, Dallas was like my New York City. I have since grown up, but Dallas still excites me in a very nostalgic, and familar kind of way. Dallas has some of the best shopping in the South --Neiman Marcus, Saks, Barneys New York --etc.
When I first spotted these Chie Mihara Saigion boots at Neiman Marcus, I had a very "Carrie Bradshaw Hello Lover" kind of moment. If you know me at all, then you know I love shoes and these were love at first sight. To me, these boots look very Parisian and feminine and beautiful. By the way, Andy Choate of the shoe department at the Neiman Marcus in NorthPark Center in Dallas is wonderful. He searched the country to find me a size 8 in these beauties...and he found them. Thanks Andy.
I also got some of the super cute Harajuku Lovers fragrances. The fragrances themselves are not bad, but honestly I got them for the cute bottles. "Baby" is the one pictured and I got it for myself. I got the "Love" one for my cousin Lily because it looks just like her.
I took a trip to Downtown Dallas to the Flagship Neiman Marcus too. It was a treasure trove of fabulous beauty finds. The SA, Amanda -who helped me was a doll and she had the most fabulous (and shocking) lashes on. I loved her.
I got the new Bobbi Brown Shimmering Nudes Palette and I love it. Every color is wearable and beautiful and perfect for Fall, not to mention perfect for a redhead.
I also fell in love with Guerlain Cologne du 68-Matieres Premieres. It is named after the famed address on the Champs -Elysees in Paris, plus it is said to have 68 ingredients that make up the beautiful scent. It is fresh and floral and creamy and wonderful. I have worn it almost every day since I purchased it.
This is the gorgeous Chanel Smokey Eye Quad. I thought I was not going to be able to find this gem, but Chanel always comes through. Rimmel also has a beautiful quad that resembles this one very much if you cannot find the Chanel one. I will post pics of the Rimmel one sometime this week for comparison.
Now that Fall is almost here, I am getting excited about coats and boots and cashmere- however working on Fashion Week stuff almost has me craving Spring again.
September is always such a fun month.
Oh and for you music fans, check out the song "September" by Kalai. It is lovley. I have been a fan of Kalai for a long time. He is very unique and he is from Alaska--but then again, isn't everyone these days?
Have a wonderful day.
