There are a few things I could talk about at length and with intense passion: my dogs, pizza, the Bravo Housewives (specifically of Beverly Hills and New York), and my entrepreneurial friends. I've been lucky enough to cross paths with some incredibly talented people who are doing amazing things - and then I've forced said people to become my friends. Though they each run independent brands and create different products, they all have a shared vision in that their goods are produced in far away places (Mexico, India, Turkey, Africa, China, etc.) and they strive to make special, quality designs while also shining a light on the artisans performing time-honored traditions and skillful practices.
When my friends Katie and Erin of MIRTH Caftans mentioned wanting to come to Dallas this spring for a pop-up trunk show I told them that they needed to do it with Mickey and Sabah. Pushy? Yes I am. But I have always thought that my MIRTH caftans and Sabah shoes made for an amazing pairing and I have always loved the idea of seeing my favorite small brands and entrepreneurial friends doing something together.
These three friends met over margaritas in Houston and my matchmaking dreams came true...Sabah House Dallas is hosting MIRTH while they pop into Dallas! Next Wednesday, May 3rd you can stop by the Sabah House and shop a selection of MIRTH's caftans! They'll be there all day (11am to 7pm) and trust me, you will never meet caftans more wearable than these. Their designs are so flattering and the hand-blocked, hand-woven and hand-loomed fabrics are beyond dreamy...I absolutely live in mine. And of course, they look just amazing with a pair of Sabahs! I couldn't be happier to see these two brands get together and feel super honored to play host for the event. Hoping some of you in the Dallas area can join us! (read more to get all the details)
Here are all the event details:
.Place & Time: Sabah House Dallas (2312 Routh Street) will be hosting MIRTH all day on Wednesday, May 3rd from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm! I’ll be at the store (wearing a MIRTH caftan and Sabah shoes, duh) from 4-7 pm!
.Shop MIRTH: MIRTH will be bringing their latest Spring 2017 caftans (beautiful blues, soft corals, the most airy whites, and insanely gorgeous hand-printed and hand-woven fabrics) as well as a selection from from their Resort 2017 collection. Try on and take home!
.Shop Sabah: Being that this pop-up is hosted at the Sabah House, you’ll be able to shop the in-house selection of Sabah shoes…their colorful walls of stacked leather and calf hair soles will give you a whole new appreciation for handmade shoes.
.Enjoy: snack on lite bites (with a taste of India) and sip a libation while you shop and visit…the Prosecco will be poppin’ around happy hour!
Don’t live close to Dallas? We will miss you dearly…but I’ll be sharing some of the fun from the event and you can follow @apieceoftoast on Instagram so you can feel like you’re there!
