my two cents: brian bolke


Possibly the biggest event in Dallas fashion history, the Chanel Metiers d’Arts collection, has come in gone. What an amazing blockbuster and gift to the city. Thank you, Karl Lagerfeld! It was spectacular.

For one too brief moment, the entire fashion world descended on an icy Dallas. Anna, Andre, Hamish….everyone and anyone. But who blew my mind when she walked in our door? The incomparable Giovanna Battaglia. The editor of L’Uomo Vogue and editor of W….perhaps the chicest woman on the planet. And immediately gravitated to our incredible vintage Balmain Mongolian fur from Decades. She put it on and it was done. She wore it to Chanel that night and looked like a million bucks.

As the fashion world turns…

book club: beyond extravagance



There’s still plenty of time to finish up those last minute gifts. Our pick for the girl who has everything? Assouline’s newest volume: Beyond Extravagance: A Royal Collection of Gems and Jewels. The 416-page tome presents the rich tradition of Indian jeweled objects. Spanning over 400 years of history, this book includes key pieces such as a carved jade dagger owned by the builder of Taj Mahal, the Arcot II diamond, a Cartier choker made for the Maharaja of Patiala, and more.

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has officially hit. With the long hours at the office, the holiday shopping, the cocktail parties (and the after parties!), we’re in need of some sustenance. Since we’ve had our fill of holiday sugar, we’re heading to Number One to enjoy a veggie sandwich and a cup of tomato soup instead.
