Each week, DFW Style Daily reveals the fashion fixations of our city’s top trendsetters. Today, Lindsay Jenkins and Michelle Parker, founders of vintage hotspot Pocketful of Pearls, take the plunge.
Read on for these rising style stars’ enviable picks, and click here to shop their online vintage and resale boutique. It may just become one of your obsessions. We couldn’t agree more with their philosophy: “Great style should be affordable and accessible to everyone.”
1. Beauty Bar
Jenkins and Parker adore the ‘60s salon-inspired décor at Dallas’ Beauty Bar. The ladies cite the hotspot’s cool tunes and “Martinis and Manicures” happy hours among the many reasons they’re addicted. Make sure you wave to their favorite bartender Dave when you visit 1924 Henderson Avenue in Dallas.
Commenting on their blogging preferences, Jenkins and Parker note, “For those who don’t have a lot of time to commit to the world of blogging, Tumblr is perfect!” Pocketful of Pearls uses Tumblr as a virtual parking lot for many stylish inspirations, which you can access by selecting the Inspiration tab on the boutique’s website.
3. Beyoncé’s “4” Album.
As self-proclaimed Beyoncé stalkers, the Pocketful of Pearls girls can’t get enough of this album. “There is a song here for every kind of mood,” they explain. “Our faves are Run the World (Girls), Party, and Countdown.” Snag the album from Target or iTunes via BeyonceOnline.com.
4. Sequins and Bold Colors
“Why should New Year’s Eve parties have all the fun? Sequins and bright colors are something we both love and we wish more people would embrace them on a regular basis,” say Jenkins and Parker. Browse the Pocketful of Pearls closet for eye-catching finds like those pictured here.
Finally, the ladies are all over this Fall 2011 mega-trend. They love the sexy, sassy, bossy edge that defines masculine-inspired dressing. Not to mention that a tailored blazer is the staple item in both of their respective wardrobes.
