Houston’s abuzz as everyone gets ready for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the world’s largest livestock show and richest regular-season rodeo. This unmatched, multi-week event kicks off on Tuesday, February 27 with Garth Brooks’ sold-out concert, and the good times (which include a big-purse Rodeo, some of the biggest names in the music industry, the largest Western shopping mall, a carnival, and amazing food) roll on through March 18.
Just in time for Mardi Gras, New Orleans-based purveyor of sleek sunnies and stylish opticals, KREWE, is coming to Houston! Their too-cute-to-be-true mobile Tiny House boutique will land in the high-end River Oaks District on Saturday, February 10, and you’re invited to their launch party.
To know West Houston is to love it. One of the city’s most affluent parts of town, West Houston is home to some of the most swank real estate, best restaurants, and world-class hotels. It also boasts fantastic shopping.
Meet CITYCENTRE, a premier destination for everything from shopping to dining to accomodations. This season, head west and take care of your holiday shopping at one of Houston’s best stops for all things high-end and fabulous.
Everything old becomes new again.
This Golden Rule of style is a testament to the value of luxury goods, those exquisite bags, accessories, and timepieces that transcend the test of time. These days, the most coveted pieces are on the vintage market—just ask the queen of pre-loved luxury, Houston’s own Donae Cangelosi Chramosta, co-owner of The Vintage Contessa & Times Past.
Despite thermometers indicating otherwise, it is officially fall! Because of the Houston heat, you will need transitional pieces that can be draped on or taken off when temperatures are sliding between 85 and 60 degrees. These pieces probably already have a place in your closet, so in that spirit, I’ve featured some wardrobe items from my own closet with suggestions on where you can shop around Houston to grab similar looks of your own! Here are three staples to keep close at hand as the seasons (slowly) turn.
Houston is the most diverse city in the United States, and proud of it.
Evidence of its rich culture abounds, making it one of the most exciting destinations in which to dine and shop. Furthermore, it’s a bustling scene for what’s next—creative new concepts favor Houston’s enthusiastic audience and strong economy, bringing new stars to a sky that’s shining brighter by the moment. One of the city’s latest and greatest style debuts? Collectivo.
It’s only natural that one of Houston’s favorite shopping destinations should spread its wings. Tootsies Takes Off landed last season in an annex right across from its flagship namesake in the beautiful West Ave development, just below Milk + Honey.
As you travel east on Westheimer from ritzy River Oaks into arty Montrose, you’ll find the street studded with shops: vintage boutiques, cafés, and antique stores adorn the sidewalk, like so many jewels on a bracelet. On weekends, the area is abuzz with shoppers and brunchers enjoying the sunshine as they browse from door to door.
