This past February, I was kindly invited to attend an event at one of Dallas’ best boutiques, called LUBLU located in the Plaza at Preston Center. As a huge advocate and supporter of upcoming new stores, I was excited to see what this line was all about!
Named after the Russian term, “I Love,” LUBLU has become one of the most well established fashion lines among many American fashionistas. Starting in 2007, the “Kira Plastinina Fashion House” was established in Russia under their youngest designer, Kira Plastinina. As a young Russian-born designer, Kira manages two brands – LUBLU Kira Plastinina premium line and Kira Plastinina, a younger fast fashion line. Also being “rated among the top ten fashion companies in Russia by Forbes magazine,” we’re sure to see this store skyrocket here in the Big D too!
My LUBLU FAVS!
During the event I was able to see and try on a number of new pieces from their spring/summer 2014 collection. My heart skipped a beat when I tried on their selection of romantic and exquisite line of party skirts and floral dresses! One of my many favorites was this Silk Amour Party Skirt In Black and Digital Blossom Tee. I loved how versatile it was and best of all, it had pockets!
Here were a few of my other favorites pieces that can easily be found online or in-store depending on availability (call store for details).
Gotta LOVE the TEXAS support!
I Texas LUBLU Tees!

For all you Sex and The City fans out there, this is one post you’ll just die over! I actually got to meet Sarah Jessica Parker at the signing of her new shoe line, The SJP Collection at Nordstrom NorthPark Center this past weekend! I couldn’t believe it!
If you notice her outfit, I was digging her look of stirrup tights with heels! So cute!
I came to find out that her shoe line also includes several handbags and a classic trench style coat that comes in two colors. Created in partnership with Parker’s business partner, George Malkemus, CEO of Blahnik USA the line was exclusively launched at Nordstrom’s and Nordstrom online. Her shoe line features a variety of wedges, flats, and even a lace up bootie made exclusively at Nordstrom.
On a side note, I thought it was interesting how she kept her heels at a moderate to low height vs. the high heels that we're used to seeing her wear on TV. In an article from Latimes.com she mentioned that she “wanted to show that you can have a shoe that’s not sky-high that is still significant and still feels sexy and powerful and feminine [without being] impossible to navigate the streets [in]…” I also loved how the line was created for a more “budget conscious shopper” with prices ranging as low as $195(flip flops) - $495(coats).
I couldn’t of been more impressed on how sweet and thoughtful she was! Her voice sounded just like you hear on TV and when you saw her, you couldn’t help but notice how stylish and genuine she was. When I went up to say hello I called her “Mrs. Parker” (that's the Texas in me)..haha.. and she even complimented me on how “cute my outfit was.” Wow! A compliment from Sarah Jessica Parker... I was floating on a cloud ladies!
I highly encourage anyone to check out her line. You’ll find a number of adorable styles and options of colors that are great for this coming new spring season! Here were a few of my favorites and the ones I purchased. (images from http://shop.nordstrom.com/)
