Style Profile [Page Walker]

Posted by on March 25, 2015 | No Comments »



Page Walker is everything; she’s smart, gorgeous, creative, sweet, and trés chic. She’s a member of SMU’s Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, competes on the Ad team, has interned for D Magazine, styled for Free People, along with a slew of other credentials that set her above the rest. Even with the pressures of school, her extra-curriculars, a social life, and the need for sleep, she maintains her poised demeanor. PAGE4


Her wardrobe never disappoints and seems to have an infinite number of combinations that always keep her looking so stylish. She’s an accessory type, so looking put together is second nature to her. 

If you haven’t met her I’d have to say you’re definitely missing out.

Keep killin’ em Page!




Music Monday: Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers Take Dallas

Posted by on March 23, 2015 | No Comments »

DSC_0281You know your Wednesday was well spent when you head out to N Lamar street to see live music in intimate quarters. Shannon and I had the pleasure of watching Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers do their thing in Dallas last week. The band’s tour kicked off just a couple weeks ago, so we were extra fortunate to get the opportunity to sit down and speak with them before the show started.

SS: How’s Dallas treating you?

JH: Well we just kinda got here. We went to a comic store, bought some cool magic cards. We also went to a coffee shop. We haven’t had much time to do stuff. DSC_0295

SS: What has it been like since the release of Terra Incognita?

JH: I think it’s going to take a while for it to take momentum. It’s sorta going to take a lot of hard work. It is our first time touring like this for just being a regional Michigan band.

SS: Have you had a favorite stop on tour so far?

JH: Well we have been away on tour for six days so far; it’s a two month tour. Nashville was pretty cool but there was a lot of exercising. We went bike riding uphill and downhill. Carbondale, CO was also great. There was super nice people and a very receptive crowd. Touring is all about the cool people you meet.

SS: Do you have a favorite song to perform?

JH: Ahhh that’s hard. They’re all super fun to perform. It does take two to three times of playing to fill up a room. I guess I have to say Feel is definitely the most fun on stage.


DSC_0306SS: So we have to ask… what are you guys wearing?

JH: Well we have these super cool kicks…. (referring to their tennis shoes). I’m not going to lie, I usually wear wings but they have been misplaced. We believe costumes transforms us into stage creatures. I love etsy. If we had a bigger budget, we would so hire costume people. It would get weird REAL quick.

SS: Is there a dream venue you all wish to play at in the future?

JH: I mean we would love to play at RedRocks… we also would love to take it back home and hit the big spots- The Fillmore, Sonic Temple.

DSC_0313DSC_0331SS: Are you excited to play SXSW?

JH: As intense as it is, its exciting to play. Feels like work while we are there, but we hope to have time to enjoy it this year. I hope to see Future Islands. I’m going to make it my goal to see them live and a few other DJs.

 After watching them play, Joe and the boys mingled with the crowd. They played songs from their new album, and a few songs from their past works. I really believe they sound exactly, if not better live. They truly are a humble band and are just happy to do what they love- play music.

Transferring to Public School

Posted by on March 3, 2015 | No Comments »

Word on the street is Public School 214 is the new hot spot in West Village, so the SMUStyle team stopped by on Sunday to see what all the hype is about. Easy to say, we approve and will be back for “Recess” soon.

 We always appreciate cute table papers.

The mezze plate is perfect for sharing between friends over a (first) round of drinks – crispy chickpeas are a must.

The Crushed Velvet is a sure to be favorite drink of the girls’ night out – think of it as a Moscow mule with a sweet twist. Adorable presentation complimentary with all drink purchases.

Daniela had fun getting ready for spring break with her festive Jungle Juice.

Chorizo Mac and Cheese with potato chips was a crowd favorite – leave the calorie counter and regrets at home on this one.

The salads were a popular choice that evening, with plenty of options for the health inclined – something about our weekends made us strive for skinny on Sunday night.

Taylor loooved his brown bag fries – sriracha ketchup for the win.

Public School is an incredibly versatile location, perfect for a girls’ night on the town or throwing back a few brews with the bros. I’d even propose this spot as a sweet first date solution. The menu offers tons of variety to please a crowd, and the craft beer enthusiasts will rejoice at the lengthy list of lager options. Be sure to make a reservation, PS is always full, even early on a Sunday night.
