There are so many people wearing sweaters in our office today. It’s indicative of a real mind over matter situation (if we pretend it feels like fall, it will come), but it’s also making us happy. There’s a lot of local goodness bringing us joy this week, though, so to kick off what might potentially become a weekly series of editorial roundups (let’s just see how this goes!), we’re sharing them with you here. Happy Friday!
Rob Wilson Art in Royal Blue Grocery
We love Rob Wilson. We love the Dallas artist’s bold, graphic designs, and we really love seeing them hanging in our favorite places around town. One recent spotting: The walls of Royal Blue Grocery in Highland Park Village, which currently sport Wilson’s Texas Icons prints.
Talulah & Hess’ Reopening
Lakewood’s lovely, longstanding lifestyle stores, Talulah Belle and its more furniture-focused sister Hess, have been moving towards merging for a while now, but the two finally became one this fall inside a welcoming new space just blocks away from their original homes. Stop by for tonight for a grand opening fete starting at 5:30pm, and maybe pick up a gift or two (or twelve) while you’re there.
Set & Co. on Spotify
We know Adam and Jen Littke are pros at curating their Oak Cliff kitchen and home boutique, but they can put together a mean playlist as well. Follow Set & Co.’s Spotify profile for monthly mixes as cool as the shop.
Though the female-first dating app has moved its headquarters from Dallas to Austin, we still like to keepup with everything SMU grad and Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd has been working on. (Which can be tough; the folks at Bumble always seem to have something new to announce.) The latest: Bumble Bizz, which offers a shift in focus from dating to networking. We like the way it may take some of the anxiety out of the often-dreaded act, and continues to establish the app as a way to meet cool people, not just potential dates.
2018 Calendars at All Good Things
It’s never too early to start looking forward to 2018, especially when there are adorable desk calendars just waiting to be broken out.
Just one week after hosting an amazing online raffle to help raise money for Puerto Rico, GAIA continues to prove itself as a feel-good Instagram account.
Tenacious with a capital 'T' right here 👆 Meet Gul, our refugee artisan from Afghanistan, who after mere months of sewing with GAIA, just mastered the toughest item in our collection: The Roundie ⚪️😱 (see last post). Sewing a handbag into a perfect circle on a basic sewing machine has stumped many, but this one rose to the challenge… you go, Gul! 🙌 🏆 ⭐️ #GAIAgoodness #withrefugees #empoweringwomen
