Party Pics: Thrift Studio’s 2015 Preview Party

Dwell with Dignity’s annual pop-up shop, Thrift Studio, kicked off last night with a lively preview party. Suite 749 was filled with design loving partygoers who were quick to hunt down the fabulous finds found at each vignette. Amidst the lucky shoppers were the talented designers and artists themselves along with D Magazine’s own Matt Shelley, who was there to capture all excitement. Click here to view the party pics.

Thrift studio will continue its thrifty reign at the Dallas Design Center through May 23rd, but move fast, my friends. Though many items are replenished over the month, these deeply discounted treasures will go fast.

Book Club: The Best of People Weekly/The First Decade

Did you know that actress-singer Ronee Blakley and German film director Wim Wenders married in Caldwell, Idaho in 1979 and their marriage only lasted 12 months? Do you know who actress-singer Ronee Blakley is? I’m betting the answer to both of those questions is a resounding “No.” But if you had The Best of People/The First Decade you could learn about that, read about Miss Piggy, check out covers featuring C-3PO and ET, and read long articles about Patricia Neal and Irene Gubrud. It really is a super fun book for any Gen Xer who grew up with a mom who got a subscription every week. It was published in 1984 (around the time most of the D Home team was born—aside from sad old me. Yay!), and it’s full of good stuff about Alan Alda, Jane Fonda, Michael Jackson, Liz Taylor, Ed Asner, and so many more folks that maybe you haven’t thought about in a while. Whenever I have company, they are drawn to this book (as well as Glamour’s Big Book of Dos and Don’ts, also vintage) because it’s hilarious. So that’s my recommendation for the day: Go check out that vintage coffee table books at Half Price Books, get some that make you happy, and then mix them in with your fancy Tom Ford book.

Get the Vibe: Read Between the Lines’ Flagship Store

We’re big fans of Melinda Jones here at D Home. Her joyful expressions are the driving energy behind her company Read Between the Lines, a local source for bold prints, thoughtful cards, and hilarious wine and spirit bags. After managing the online company out of her living room for the past two years, Jones decided it was time to open shop, literally, with RBTL’s very first brick and mortar store in Victory Park.

I caught up with the talented wordsmith to talk about the inspiration behind the space as well as her most popular expressions.
