Best cocktail? Bowen House. I get the “Oh, My Darjeeling Clementine.”
Fitness spot? I like to work out at the Cooper Clinic, and I like to walk the Katy Trail with my dogs, Rupert and Bruno.
Best shopping? The vintage store Lula B’s, Clotheshorse Anonymous, Dolly Python, and Forty Five Ten.
For the perfect pair: My favorite place to go shoe shopping is Forty Five Ten. Their shoes are amazing.
Go-to activity during the hot, humid days of July: Very weird, but King Spa (a large facility that offers different types of saunas, acupuncture, massages, food and beverage and a waterpark).
Best part of Dallas to explore: I like the museums in Fort Worth a lot, and I really like the Bishop Arts District.
Girl’s night out? If I have friends in town and want them to get the real Texan experience, I’ll take them to the bar at Dunston’s Steak House. I also like Nobu’s happy hour, Le Bilbouquet and Niwa Japanese BBQ. Oh! and Kaze on Greenville for karaoke, it’s so much fun.
Spa? The Spa at Hotel Crescent Court. I also like to get facials at Enlighten Med Spa.
Favorite galleries and current exhibits? I really like the exhibits at The Meadows Museum at SMU right now and the Dior: From Paris to the World show at the Dallas Museum of Art, I love going to the Tate Modern in Fort Worth too. Gallery-wise, I like the Ginger Fox Gallery and Samuel Lynne Gallery.
Which artist would you love to own a piece from? Francis Bacon, Franz Kline, and Richard Serra. Jeff Koons for more contemporary stuff.
Favorite piece hanging in your home right now? Probably this piece that my mom gave me by Pam Nelson. It has to do with my birth month and was made in my birth year. She gave one to all of my siblings for their birthdays.
Destination you can’t get enough of? Sardinia and Capri in Italy; Ibiza in Spain; San Miguel de Allende in Mexico; Fez in Morocco; Cairo and Gouna in Egypt; and Buenos Aires in Argentina.
