BETTER THAN EVER

BETTER THAN EVER

Fabulous fashion is back this fall, bold and beautiful. Now that we are returning to board rooms and ballrooms, we’re craving connection and communication—optimistic expression through fabulous flair. Our vivacious style hunter Eleanora Morrison, of Eleanora.co., weighs in with her boisterous recommendations.

A DOLL’S HOUSE

For a Texas fall, we always love a billowy blouse. Perfect for the days when the heat starts to subside, and the breezes begin to blow like this Loewe Doll House Printed Oversized Shirt for your transitional seasonal wardrobe.

THAT MAKES TOTAL SCENTS

The best accessory to any room is a vibrant scent that evokes your mood. We recommend Set To Jet, the 100% environmentally safe soy, long-burning candle. It was created by Dirty Bartender Candles and The Society Chronicles for the brand-new luxury candle collection, Social-Lite Candles. There are many gorgeous scents from which to choose, in 11 oz. platinum glass.

FALL’S PICK-ME-UP

An easy way to perk up any outfit is with a colorful pair of earrings that makes your gorgeous face the focus. We love these perennially happy and hand-crafted creations from Cassandra Collections. These 14k gold-filled, multi-floral earrings with pearls are a delight.

GOOD FOR BEAUTY

The Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Campaign has created a global impact since 1992. When you purchase the company’s product, a portion of the purchase price will raise funds towards the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).
