The Pin Show is an annual event that focuses mainly on Independent Fashion Designers here in Dallas. It started 7 years ago with about 100 attendees and now has a strong following from the who’s who of Dallas fashion. The Good Year Plant was transformed into a local style mecca hosting close to 1,000 fashion lovers this year.
There were over 150 looks (I’ve included my absolute favorites), live music and sponsors including Stilla. One highlight of the night was a surprise marriage proposal between design partners Aldo Sandoval and Annie Barrientos of Sandbarri! The crowd went wild and she said yes!
I ended the night at the The Candle Room after party hosted by the ever impeccable and gracious Jackson Fluent of Fluent Dallas. Energy there mimicked that of the fashion show! Champagne flowed, models danced and we all had such glitzy times!
Happy Monday Bling Lovers!
So I went to the Dallas Galleria this past weekend in search of a sleek black look for an upcoming fashion show. I wanted something edgy, chic and just a tad sexy. What I left with was this in your face, flowing maxi dress.
After trying on what felt like countless dresses, I had thrown in the towel. Then while on my way out of the mall this dress “called” me from the glamorous racks at Marciano by Guess.
I instantly saw myself wearing it with light accessories on an Anniversary trip with my love. I envisioned it with a light denim vest and stacked bracelets for brunching/shopping. I also saw myself sporting it with this moto jacket and a tough handbag for cooler, edgier nights.
This was far from what I set out to buy but I’m certainly not complaining. It’s like when Matthew Perry turns to Selma Hayek in one of my favorite movies Fools Rush In and says, “You’re everything I never knew I always wanted”.
Do you have a piece in your closet like this? One that found you? I’d love to hear about it.
