Blushington Dallas

We’re so excited about the recent opening of Blushington in Dallas at The Shops of Highland Park- the second location for the Hollywood based beauty boutique.  Enjoy makeup applications (after reviewing a glamorous lookbook of signature styles) by professional artists in a chic and glamorous setting.  Founder Stephi Maron launched the company after realizing there wasn’t a convenient place to have her makeup professionally done at an affordable price.

A full face for makeup is just $40 and you may select the “just eyes” option as well. Blushington also offers lash application, waxing, and tweezing too.   You can also schedule professional makeup classes and private parties.  And, ready for your holiday wish list, Blushington offers gift cards as well!

Lela Rose Pre-Fall 2013

Heightening our Lela Rose obsession is the pre-fall 2013 collection.  We loved viewing these images in rich mustard hues, cobalt blues, and charcoals - in the most beautiful and artistically inspired prints. There’s a gorgeous mix of color play that comprises the unique array of graphics in this collection.

Lela Rose pre-fall 2013 was inspired by the Abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still.  His use of jagged edges and large expanses of color inspired many of the prints and fabrics, as well as the dripped paint embroideries.  We can’t wait to shop these styles in our boutique.
