The Big D is clearly one of the best cities out there. We basically have it all- the restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, shops- yet here at SMUStyle we still have a request or two. We believe there’s a tiny bit room for improvement and ahhh if only Dallas had these places, everything would be so much better.
As far as I’m concerned, yesterday’s cool weather marked the beginning of fall in Dallas. Uncle Ben said it best, “with great power comes great responsibility.” Don’t let your four years at SMU pass you by without experiencing all the great things Dallas has to offer. Yes, there is a world outside of Homebar and Uptown. So throw on a sweater and check out my list of fall to-dos in Dallas!
Bonjour mes amis!
In preparation for the upcoming Paris Spring 2017 fashion week, I thought I’d take you all on a little trip down memory lane with me as I describe my experience living in Paris during the Fall 2016 fashion week last spring. Excuse me if I shed a few tears, post abroad depression is real.
To all the ladies out there with the big hair that you spend 2 hours creating to only let it fall, get greasy and frizzy due to humidity and sun, I feel your pain. Getting hair to be ~on fleek~ at all times is a mystery rocket scientists wouldn’t even be able to solve. Boulevards are like an automatic death for hair. We might as well just give up and spend our time focusing on what’s really important…NOT.
Family Weekend is upon us! Which usually means a lot of alcohol upon us, as well. Looking back, I have memories here and there of my dad’s frustrated face smashed in a crowd at Barley and my mother looking disdainfully upon the Coors light in her hand mid-Montaigne Club. So let’s be honest, your parents are not trying to turn up at Avenu or get down at Homebar this weekend. Spare them (and you) the embarrassment and bad alcohol and take them somewhere a little *swankier* to sip up some luxurious libations. And maybe let them pick up the tab, too.
Trendy + Fun + Hot
It is quite an honor to introduce to you our IT girl of the week- Isabella Gerstein. This Mexican sophomore transfer is far from ordinary, trust me. Her beauty has captured many at the Boulevard, as has her killer personality. And have I mentioned how strong her Instagram game is? Ohh it’s #GOALS.
Isa’s incredible taste for fashion, killer bod, très chic looks, and amazing photography skills make her 100p blogger material. I caught up with Isa just yesterday for a quick Q&A and shoot session, and one thing is certain- this girl is nothing short of fabulous.
Last weekend, Emily, Addison and I ventured over to Highland Park Village to check out what was going on over at Theory. I quickly realized that Theory has something for every occasion in your jam-packed life. Who knew that there was a top out there you can wear from an interview to Avenu? These looks are perfect for all you crazy college kids.
Ever look at someone’s flawless makeup in awe and confusion as to why you can’t get yours to look that perfect? Well, Maddie Rice is that girl we’ve all caught ourselves staring at and this week I was lucky enough to get the inside scoop on all of her secrets. Follow Maddie’s steps for “going out” makeup and prepare to wow the crowd at Homebar this Thursday, or at least the few that will remember.
