Russian born, Dallas-based Nasiba Adilova is co-founder of The Tot and formerly the Director of Business Development at Buro 24/7. A street style darling, Nasiba has been photographed for the industry’s top news outlets including The Covetuer, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Departures and Town & Country among others.
As then a mother to a young toddler and now a second newborn, Nasiba wanted to build an online luxury destination that promoted safe, clean and health conscious products for children and moms. The Tot was born in 2016 out of this desire and it has swiftly become a one-stop-shop for women everywhere seeking not only the best brands for children but also a place to connect with each other.
Foodie Favorite: Bullion
“My new favorite will be the restaurant we are opening with chef Bruno Davaillon, Bullion!,” Nasiba shared. “But I also love to have lunch at, Grange Hall, Mirador at Forty Five Ten, Hillstone, or R+D Kitchen,” she said. “For dinner, Tei-An or Town Hearth,” she said are her favs.
Cocktail Culture: The GEM
“As far as bars, I like The Mansion and The Joule,” Nasiba told us. “But truly my kind of cocktail is green juices so I’d have to say, The GEM” she said. Not only does the GEM sell fresh juices but offer counseling services for a healthy lifestyle.
Artistic Addiction: DMA
“Dallas Contemporary, DMA, The Modern” she told us. Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion exhibition is running until August 20. Iris van Herpen combines fashion, design, technology, and science. This is an exhibition you don’t want to miss!
Decor Destination: Madison 214
“Madison for adorable holiday things, I love working with two amazing interior designers in Dallas: Angeline Guido Designs and Kelli Ford at Kristen Kelli” Nasiba said.
Bargain Hunter: Dolly Python Vintage
“I love Dolly Python Vintage!,” Nasiba said. The store carries 30 different antique dealers and consignors, who restock their booths regularly. She also raved about Vintage Martini, a used- clothing boutique with antique and vintage pieces for women.
Brain Candy: Bookstore at the Joule
Nasiba loves “The bookstore at the Joule”. It’s full of stylish coffee books and seating for a relaxing read. She also enjoys “the Taschen Library and reading a book at the Nasher Sculpture Garden”.
I Heart Dallas: The Arboretum
Nasiba’s fave is The Arboretum. She also enjoys the Nasher Sculpture Garden, Highland Park Village, The Warehouse and Deep Ellum.
