We love a list and a Best in Dallas list is even better! Today, Courtney and Allison Edwards, fashion-savvy twins and jewelry connoisseurs, share their favorite Dallas hot spots for brunch, popsicle cocktails, and more:
You’ve probably seen this pair of multifaceted twins around town, frequenting Dallas’ top restaurants, fashion events, and concerts . The sisters started as the fashion blogger duo behind Where Wear in the City, which began as a blog but grew into a popular website for all things in travel, fashion, and the arts. After years of written endeavors under their belts, the two were motivated to take their talents to the next level. Their skyline jewelry collection, City + Sky, was launched in 2014 to show their love of the city and a worldly view of the sky. Most recently, the uber-fashionable twins decided to add yet another creative feather to their collective hat, as personal stylists at Threads Refined, a Dallas-based company founded in 2015 that offers your very own personal stylist on command. The new styling company was recently called upon to outfit lifestyle expert/TV coach Josh McBride on both The Wendy Williams Show and The TODAY Show!

With so many tasty options to choose from, the sisters agreed that their favorite place to brunch is Le Bilbouquet. “[They] have the best Cajun Chicken Salad with fries,” the power sister duo shared with us of the restaurant’s breakfast fare. The French, by way of Dallas, eatery is known for its top knotch cuisine and outdoor dining. A monthly Brunch Club, fully equipped with a DJ, is held one Saturday out of every month – sign us up!
“Best craft cocktails in the city,” exclaimed Courtney of Bowen House, Cocktails & Kitchen on Boll St. With a new menu of specialty eats and a swoon-worthy cocktails, the two fun-loving gals suggest taking a look at their new popsicle cocktails to beat the heat.
For artistic inspiration, the twins head to the Design District to Edo Popken of Switzerland for the designer’s Artist in Session series. “He just hosted artist Matthew Brinston and last week hosted Artist in Session, JoJo Herda who will be featured at the store until early August,” shared Allison of the current events happening at the menswear store. In addition to the artist sessions, the shop specializes in quality menswear styles and accessories for the fashion-forward.
Bargain hunting for designer duds might seem like a feat, but the two stylish fashionistas have just the solution. “[It’s the] best retail consignment place to find designer duds,” exclaimed the twin stylists of Clotheshorse Anonymous. The consignment shop has an inventory of gently loved clothes and accessories from top designers, including Celestina, Chloe, Manolo Blahnik, and YSL. Located on Preston Rd., this shopping paradise is one of Dallas’ best kept secrets for the consignors and brand lovers throughout the Metroplex.
Located inside the swanky Joule Hotel, the TASCHEN Library is full of a wide array of mind-expanding books from art book publisher TASCHEN. “[It’s the] best place to find coffee table books,” touts Allison of the shop. With a number of page- perusing titles to stimulate every book lover’s interests and intellect, the shop’s soft sofas and chairs offer a warm and welcoming space for readers to grab a book, flip to the pages, and relax. On Saturdays, the library hosts Tea at TASCHEN that features a menu of exotic and rare tea blends and pastries served in and atop colorful China.
