“We want you to have that shirt, that dress, that pair of jeans, that just lights your face up and makes you feel good when you put it on.” - Denise, ownerWe’ve all been there. Some of us go there every morning. Others only make occasional visits for dress-uppy occasions. And all of us have been there on behalf of someone else, as in, “I can’t believe he’s going to wear THAT to meet my friends.” Yes, folks – we’re talking about the Village of Nothing-Looks-Good-on-Me-Today, in the Land of Nothing- Decent-to-Wear-Might-As-Well-Stay-Home. And you don’t ever have to go back there if you don’t want to. Indigo 1745 in Bishop Arts is a safe, cozy, fun haven of accessible Dallas style. Owner Denise Manoy, her husband Keith, their in-house stylist Willie Johnson and the local students they employ are all waiting to welcome you.
Denise’s current favorites for women include: “handbags, of course,” adorable tops and skirts from Corpus Christi’s Chasensully, breezy, sassy, infinitely wearable tunics and dresses from Dallas’ own Uncle Frank Apparel and unique, modern fragrances from Juliette Has a Gun, a brand that’s already attracting rabid devotion.
And the menswear? Just the right amount of attitude and TOTALLY non-showy. Which, let’s be honest, can be a bit hard to find. Favorites for men right now include Jet Lag shorts, Kasil jeans, and shirts from George Roth that are perfect for spring and summer: lightweight, with prints that are surprising and fun but not too over the top. Think great details, contrasting cuffs, mother-of-pearl snap buttons and the occasional bit of Western flair. Now take that boy to brunch with your friends with pride.
