Galleria Dallas Presents DFW Style Daily’s 2013 Best Dressed

DFW Style Daily Galleria 2013 Best Dressed

Galleria Dallas and DFW Style Daily knows how to put up a great party. Last Thursday, September 26, I was invited to one of can’t-miss fashion events in the Big D of Texas. It’s DFW Style Daily’s 2013 Best Dressed, presented by the Galleria Dallas. 13 Best Dressed honorees were presented along with a couple of pop-up fashion shows produced by the great Jan Strimple. Special cocktails, wine, and delicious and yummy bites were offered by Galleria’s best restaurants including Oceanaire, Mi Cocina, The Grill and The 2nd Floor. And of course, the crowd was flocked by Dallas’ trendsetters who all had a great time. This special evening benefits the Dallas Can Academies and Suicide Crisis Center of North Texas. So it was definitely one fashionable charity fête too. Here’s what went down!

DFW Style Daily hosted their annual Best Dressed event right in the middle of Galleria Dallas‘ ice rink. How cool! Great job on making this space one fashionable scene complete with the red carpet, U-shape runway, DJ booth, cocktail bars, food spread, and gorgeous white, lucite, and mirrored furniture. It felt just like my home.

Of course, a party wouldn’t be complete without great music. How cool is that DJ equipment used by celebrity DJ Brandon Olds?
