Put a Feather in Your Hat at FleaStyle’s Expanded Frisco Shop

When founder Brittany Cobb first opened the Frisco edition of Flea Style back in 2019, folks were excited about the gameday looks on offer. Frisco’s location in The Star has seen a major renovation and expansion. Late last month, Flea Style completely revamped its hat bar and event space, adding 500 square feet.

The expanded 6,200-square-foot space will accommodate larger build-your-own hat parties (reservations are $20 per person and a custom hat can range between $150–$300), in addition to the new event area, called The Gallery. That space is a boho, dusty rose Pinterest dream with a gallery wall, pendant lights, and rustic-chic farm tables. Seating 32 for private events, The Gallery serves brunch boards, cocktails, sandwiches, and more from the in-store restaurant, Heirloom Haul.

While this news is nothing to hang your hat on, FleaStyle isn’t done. Besides opening two Fort Worth stores last year, Flea Style’s Deep Ellum location is currently undergoing an expansion of its own and is set to reopen in early March.

Nicole Kwon’s Is Headed to North Park Center 

If you’re part of Nicole Kwon’s loyal following, you might already know the news, but Kwon’s concept shop is opening a second brick-and-mortar shop at North Park Center later this spring. She opened her first store in West Village in 2011, building a following through its trendy, ready-to-wear clothing for the jet-setting woman.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kwon studied at the London College of Fashion, worked for several fashion houses in New York City and London—including Vivienne Westwood—and launched her first line in 2008. Her first store in Dallas’ West Village came three years later. The new, 2,000-square-foot North Park Center store, between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, will carry her everyday basics collection, NKC, which launched last summer. You can also find her vegan handbag line, KWONN, as well many hard-to-find international brands and pieces exclusive to that location.

Better Your Skin with Dr. Barbara Sturm New Vitamin B3 Serum

We all know the adage: too much of a good thing can be harmful. Take Vitamin B3, or niacinamide. In proper dosage, the nutrient can hydrate the skin, smooth lines, refine pores, control oil, and more. But too much of it can cause redness, irritation, and sensitivity. Aiming to just reap B3’s rewards, the eponymously named German skincare giant Dr. Barbara Sturm launched a new “The Better B Niacinamide Serum” February 10. The serum targets your pores, using B3 and Ectoin (an amino acid), plankton, and more to sooth and protect the skin. The Better B is available online and in-person at Sturm’s Boutique and Spa in Highland Park Village. Opened in November 2021, the flagship spa features treatments like supplements and tea bars, anti-inflammatory spa wave bed, medical skincare lines, and more.

Do It for the ‘Gram Really Did It for Sessions Pilates

There are a lot of things we do just so we can do it for the ‘gram—like taking 957 pics of the same pose at varying angles—but sometimes our clout-chasing can do some good for a local business. Case in point: On February 9, Sessions Pilates was named one of the most Instagrammable studios across the country in the 2021 ClassPass Awards
