Coming soon is Pickles & Ice Cream, a hip maternity store for fashion-conscious moms-to-be. For great stationery, gifts, and more, PaperGirl (formerly Papertree) is relocating from the Galleria. There’s also a rumor that Esmaili Rugs & Antiques is moving in, too. —S.Q.

Beads and Bags
Handbag and home accents designer Jen Cline got her start at the University of Texas in Austin with a degree in architecture. Her appreciation of color, texture, composition, and unconventional beauty is what inspires her creations. We love her kitschy cigar-box purses and luxurious bed linens and throws made of rare silks and brocades. www.jenclineaustin.com.
T-shirt with a Twist
Arts Institute of Dallas grad Casey Western designs fabulous on-the-go pieces made of a modern t-shirt knit. These threads (think edgy
t-shirt dresses and flattering, asymmetrical skirts) not only fit great, but you can also throw them on for any occasion. www.rubithreads.com.
That’s a Wrap
It took only one day with her newborn for Henley Sims to realize she needed some helping hands. After relentless hours at her sewing machine, the Simple Swaddle was born. This stylish and easy-to-use baby wrap comes in a variety of colors and patterns for discerning mommies and discriminating gift-givers. www.simpleswaddle.com.
