Dallas Market Recap

Hey Everyone!

Last week we told you about our Atlanta experience and the next day we were on a flight to Dallas to display our Fall 2012 Collection. It’s amazing how cities can have different personalities and yet remain equally exciting.

We stayed at the Hilton Anatole (absolutely stunning hotel!) and upon arrival, we spotted two of our dresses in M Shop’s windows! Although we hear about our dresses in window displays, we never really got a chance to see it in person. It was such an amazing feeling to see such a lovely display.

Once we settled in, we went to set up our booth for the next day. It’s an exhausting process, but totally worth it once we see it finalized. Our excitement carried over from Atlanta and we hoped the Dallas crowd would feel the same way about our collection as the Atlanta crowd did.

When you go with a brand new collection, it’s always a nerve-wracking experience because you aren’t sure whether or not people would like it. After the first day, we were pleased to find out that the Dallas crowd loved our Fall 2012 collection (phew!).

After a long day of work, the Dallas Market treated all the exhibitors and buyers to a beautiful 1920’s themed cocktail hour with live models, a live band and delicious appetizers and drinks. We didn’t want to leave!

People were dancing, people were laughing… Just having a good time!

And like always – we enjoyed our food in Dallas. We have to say there are fabulous restaurants in Los Angeles, but the restaurants in Dallas are something extraordinary. We had trouble deciding what to eat because everything looked so good!

To top it off, Dallas restaurants were on their A-game because of restaurant week, in which they offered customers a 3-4 course meal for only $35! For the entire week, you were able to have a meal worth $50-$100 (depending on the restaurant) for only $35!

We’re already missing Dallas – especially its food – and we can’t wait to be back in October.

See you soon!

Summer Treats

Yesterday marked the first day of summer, and there is nothing more relaxing than enjoying the blazing sun with a group of close friends. Since we already know what we’re wearing (yes, we’ve got our 2tee Couture cover-ups and dresses completely planned out), we decided to look for some treats to snack on while we’re lounging by the pool or hosting a summer party.

Browsing the web for some inspiration, we stumbled across some amazing ideas- like these watermelon ice pops.

Don’t you think these ice pops would work perfectly with these strawberry wine coolers?

We’re feeling refreshed just looking at these pictures. What do you think? Would you try these out? Do you have any other ideas for summer treats?
