Rocking covetable couture on behalf of local luminaries like Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak is de rigueur for Marisa Seaman Howard. Making today’s Obsession Confession, however, the Campbell Agency model also reveals that her daily work provides the perfect cover for a fashionable addiction.
Sharing a secret with DFW Style Daily, Howard cops to hoarding haute goods – and names the legendary label that’s turned her affinity for accessories into an obsession. Read on for the stylish scoop and click here for more Obsession Confessions!
The Obsession: Pinning her taste for French fashion on her family’s international influence, this Dallas tastemaker is fixated on all things Hermès.
The Confession: “It’s timeless and classic,” noted Howard of Hermès’ elite equestrian-inspired collections. “The quality is unparalleled.”
The Rationalization: Citing the label’s sophisticated yet sporty approach to luxury, she enthused, “Hermès is the epitome of relaxed glamour!”
The Collection: Whether bangles, belts, or blankets bearing the famed French logo, Howard’s obsession extends from closet to home. Her most prized piece is both sentimental and sartorial. The newlywed explains, “My husband bought me a gorgeous orange Hermès scarf just before we got married, and I wore it everyday of my honeymoon.”
Shop It: Howard’s current favorites include the limited edition Birkin bag by Jean Paul Gaultier, the Clic H enamel bracelet, and signature hammered belt buckles in gold and silver. You can snag your own posh picks online, or here in town at Hermès in Highland Park Village.
