A Little Bit of Paris in Dallas

May 6, 2009 by


One of my favorite designers here in Paris is Isabel Marant. She is the queen of Parisian cool and season after season she rules the runway with her laid-back yet classic, chic collections.


Good news for Dallas– A little bit of Paris has been brought to Texas. The Dallas boutique, V.O.D., now carries Isabel Marant. The owner of V.O.D. feels that, “Isabel Marant is all about easy, cool pieces you can wear every day. We are absolutely crazy for everything she does and she has a cult following at V.O.D.”


They made sure to buy only the best pieces. “For spring 09 we loved her gauze dress in poppy, all the plaids and the perfect black blazer and cropped pants from her Etoile collection.” (Her more budget friendly collection)


Her favorite runway collection pieces include “the short quilted skirt and crochet top and the velvet plaid shrunken vest with silk stripe dress. We also loved her oversized slouchy suede bag and of course those boots with the chains are perfection!”


V.O.D. plays host to the many modern designers and Isabel Marant fits right in with the unique, and classic feel that the boutique has. So this weekend, channel your inner Parisian and go check it out!


To see the talked about Isabel Marant items, make sure to visit V.O.D. located at 2418 Victory Park Lane.
