Each week, DFW Style Daily reveals the fashion obsessions of our city’s top trendsetters. Today, Annie Potasznik, Dallas style star and former reporter for NBC 5, shares her fall fixations.
Read on to find out what Annie’s shopping for right now, plus where you might spot her out on the town. Hint: Look for the beautiful brunette in black leather.
1. Leather Pants by Helmut Lang
Annie is “unabashedly obsessed” with her Helmut Lang leath-ahs. “I wear them to brunch with a feminine floral blouse, to a show with my vintage KISS tee, or to dinner with a Dries Van Noten top,” she says of her versatile, body-conscious buy. Snag a pair for yourself a Saks Fifth Avenue ($920).
2. Beach Bumming
Though she describes herself as the consummate city girl, our expert can’t wait to get away to the nearest beach. She names Miami, Los Angeles, Monte Carlo, and anywhere in Southern France among her favorite beachside hot spots.
3. Reading & Radio Resource
This self-professed bookworm is a supporter of the free radio programming and affordable audio books for the blind provided by Reading & Radio Resource. “I used to read some of my grandfather’s favorite poetry, like ‘Le Lac’ by Alphonse de LaMartine, to him after he lost his sight,” Annie recalls. “The sound of my voice and the beauty of those words brought him so much joy.”
4. “That Salad” from Bailey’s Prime Plus
Annie’s weekly reports for NBC 5 focused on her search for the most delicious dishes in Dallas. One that remains front-of-mind is “That Salad” from Bailey’s Prime Plus Steakhouse. “It’s made with baby greens and brandied Michigan cherries. Candied pistachios give it the perfect crunch, and Oregon blue cheese adds creamy goodness,” she describes. Our mouths are already watering.
5. Electrolux Airstream Vacuums
Lastly, in perhaps our most unique obsession yet, this adorable domestic goddess is officially obsessed with her vintage Electrolux vacuum cleaner. “It doesn’t suck,” she confesses. “As in, it’s not the best for picking up dirt — but it’s still awesome! It looks like an Airstream trailer, and it feeds my need for all things pre-WWII.”
