DFW Style Daily delights in revealing the fabulous fixations of our city’s top trendsetters. Today, we’ll share the style obsession of Dallas’ most famous real estate reporter, Candy Evans.
Evans’ popular blogs, Second Shelters and Candy’s Dirt, are notable for their candid and colorful banter. To wit, the professional real estalker describes herself as “the woman who brought house porn to the Bible Belt”. Naturally, Evans’ confession reflects her unique perspective, but her polished style picks also speak to her top-notch taste in homes and her time in the trenches as an editor for D Magazine.
The Obsession: Stylish switch-ups, courtesy of wardrobe swaps with her daughter and fashionable advice from her Goddaughter.
The Confession: “I guess I’m addicted to changing my style as much as possible, just as I do houses,” Evans admits of her fashion identity crisis.
The Rationalization: Evans explained her strategy for creating stylish diversions without overhauling her wardrobe, stating, “My daughter, Cassie Evans Decker, is a lawyer who worked part-time at Lilly Pulitzer just for the discounts. In a fun role reversal, I get her hand me downs!”
The Collection: “I love almost anything by Lilly, Kate Spade, and Tory Burch, but I also adore Ralph Lauren and Armani. I’ve also recently discovered Vince, thanks to my Goddaughter, Caroline Dietrich,” notes our expert. “I think it depends on the homes I’m writing about. For example, if the property is sleek and modern, I’ll instantly gravitate to simple, chic, monotone beige or black selections.”
Shop It: Evans loves Tory Burch in Highland Park Village, exclaiming, “Keep me out of that store!” You can also shop her faves Kate Spade and Ralph Lauren at Northpark Center, or peruse all her picks in one spot with a trip to Neiman Marcus.
