Rachel Zoe brought more style to the 3rd Annual Dallas Startup Week! I've attended the mini, Dallas-based "SXSW" each year and, as a born-and-raised Dallasite, I'm proud to see the event grow in attendee size and with major brand collaborations. The sessions for aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike are impeccable. Anyone interested in tech, marketing, social media, or entrepreneurship should be here during this annual week of knowledge!

The Box of Style party brought to Dallas Startup Week by Rachel Zoe's team and Style Track Captain, Leah Frazier, was quickly stamped FULL on the event schedule and had a pretty lengthy waitlist of stylish hopefuls. If you weren't able to attend, I managed to get the details for you.

After fighting Dallas traffic, I arrived at the Chase Basecamp and was whisked by elevator to the second floor lounge. The panel discussing the rise of ethical fashion led by Leah Frazier with Carly Burson (Founder of Tribe Alive) and Marissa Heyl (Creative-in-Chief of Symbology Clothing) had already begun, so I waited patiently until the party kicked off. Once the panel was over and attendees started to flood the lounge, the festivities were on!

The gift bag included Craft + Foster 'Champagne Blush' tin candle, a pair of super cute YHF Los Angeles sunnies (mine are name 'Stephanie'), and a few Butter London makeup goodies including the 'Plush Rush' Lip Gloss in First Kiss and the new Oh My, How High! Lengthening Mascara.

I can't wait to see what Dallas Startup Week has up their sleeve for 2018! The next day, I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel about content creation powered by Samsung with their new Gear 360 device. The brand sponsorships and partnerships this year were amazing...and the crowd grows with excitement by the year. Piece of advice: make your Dallas Startup Week schedules as early as possible to get the best event access, or you just might find yourself missing out on another fabulous party.

H&M Opening at Golden Triangle in Denton on August 6th

As you've probably heard a few months ago, Denton's Golden Triangle mall is opening an H&M! After four years of attending school at UNT, I'm actually happy that Golden Triangle has been undergoing a revamp and will have some new stores that will be much more attractive to students and younger people. The company is proud to have added 30 employees to the ever-expanding 15,000 US employees (for available opportunities, visit careers.hm.com) and this will be their 15th Texas location. The new 23,000 sq. ft. H&M location will open tomorrow at noon but, as always, there are perks for waiting in line early! 

  • If you're one of the first 100 shoppers in line, you'll receive an all-access pass valued up to $300
  • Did you know that you can bring in old garments for the chance to win gift cards? Save mo' money!

I'm super excited about this opening since it's in Denton and hope some of my fellow UNT & TWU students will take advantage of the opening day discounts (there are always some really great ones)! The openings are always so high-energy with great shopping and beats, so this is the best time to build your wardrobe before the semester starts. Even though I don't think I'll be attending the opening tomorrow, I'm really excited to bring some new content and fall looks your way soon!

Will you be there?
