CLASSY CASSIE: Custom cocktail fedoras from the House Of MacGregor are the ultimate finishing touch. Trained in NYC, milliner Cassie MacGregor’s stylish hats have been featured in the glossy pages of W and Italian Vogue, and now she’s crafting these one-of-a-kind works of art in a private studio in Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts District. Her “Alice” Mini Top Hat ($250, pictured above) is sure to be the hit of any New Years Eve bash, or play it simply chic in a stunning Raspberry Felt Cloche ($210). Shop online or in person at 614 Davis Street, #203 in Dallas, Monday through Friday from 10-6.
SUGAR AND SPICE: Tressa LeBoeuf’s Citizen Sweet is another local gem we’re falling for. Baked from scratch every day, this six-month-old company’s cupcakes, muffins, cookies and more are delivered right to your door. Or your clients’ doors. Or to your favorite teacher or a neighbor or – you get the idea. The “Bundle” of Gingerbread Men ($9) is perfect for the holidays, but then again so are the cranberry muffins and pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes. Have fun making your mouthwatering decision at citizensweet.com.
SHOPPING TRYST: Make a date with beautiful L. Bartlett in the West Village to find tempting holiday gifts at a very nice price. Among plenty of gorgeous give-ables for under $100, we’re particularly smitten with Kendra Scott’s “Otylia” cocktail ring ($75) and David Aubrey’s initial charm necklaces ($59). Shop to your heart’s content at 3699 McKinney Avenue, #302 in Dallas.
