Abi Ferrin: 10 Things I Love

Occupation: Fashion Designer
The Scoop: In 2006, Ferrin was named Texas’ Next Top Designer by Stanley Korshak and the Dallas Fashion Incubator. This fall, her fashion fortune came true as she made her debut at New York Fashion Week.

1. Marisa Belz at Solstice Salon
“Her cutting and coloring techniques are the best. And it grows out gracefully so you don’t have to race back every two weeks—astonishing and wonderful for a girl on the go!”

2. Organicare Energeyes
“It immediately fills in lines and reduces puffiness, and the green and white tea extracts energize the skin and help your eyes look and feel refreshed.”

3. The Deluxe Manicure and  Pedicure at Candle Nails
“My cousin Lisa and I have been going here for more than two years. The service is great, and they always make you feel special and relaxed, besides doing a wonderful job on your nails.”

4. Myra at Fabulous Faces
“She does an awesome makeup job and will come to your office, house, or wherever on the fly.”

5. Tsada Yoga Workouts
“I can’t make it through the week without at least one visit to this life-giving yoga studio. For yang workouts, I love Chinook; for nurturing yin workouts, I go to Barb.”

6. Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Juice and Emergen-C
“I start every morning off with warm water mixed with a splash of the lemon juice and a packet of Emergen-C. It helps me begin my day with energy and is a good way to jump-start my metabolism.”

“It’s like a dentist’s office whitening system you use at home five days in a row. It has the same blue light dentists use to activate white teeth, and it’s available at CVS.”

8. Rachelle Dauphinée Jewelry
“Kalypso cuff and Demetra earrings are my favorites from this Dallas-based designer. They’re available at Stanley Korshak and Saks.”

9. Hard Night Good Morning
“D’Andra Simmons’ new product made such a difference for my skin after all of the hard nights that I had leading up to New York Fashion Week.”

10. Fashion Optical, The Art of Eyewear Sunglasses
“Owner Morgan Metcalf has a gift for picking out the perfect frames for your face shape, so go in and let him work his magic.”
