If there is a video of a model wearing the item you want to buy, always watch it. You’ll get a good idea of the weight and quality of the fabric as they walk. Asos , for example, have catwalk videos of almost everything. Thin material wafting around legs won’t be what you want come October.

They need to elevate their look from J Crew. They want something that states their individuality.” Double R will be among several retailers and restaurants making their first foray into Fort Worth at the upscale Shops at Clearfork , a mixed-use development in the southwest part of the city. Clearfork already has commitments from brands such as Burberry, Tiffany, Tory Burch and Louis Vuitton and is anchored by a sparkling new 95,000-square-foot Neiman Marcus . Rise No. 1 , a popular Dallas souffle spot, has applied for a liquor license to open its new location in Clearfork, and so has Malai Kitchen , a critically acclaimed Vietnamese-Thai fusion restaurant with locations in Dallas’ West Village and Southlake.
