We've been roaming the lush green landscapes, enjoying the beautiful weather and cozy outside seating of Houston's City Centre since the Spring season commenced. Located right at I-10 and Beltway 8 bordering Memorial, Westchase and Bunker Hill neighborhoods, City Centre is the ultimate indoor/outdoor shop and dine playground. City Centre houses the beautiful Hotel Sorella, luxury brownstones, and some of Houston's great restaurant's such as Eddie V's, RA Sushi, Cyclone Aynayas, Straits, Ruggles Green, Bistro Alex, The Tasting Room and our personal favorite Flora & Muse. Each restaurant manages to have an awesome dining patio and there are the extra perks in the Centre known as Red Mango Yogurt and Sweet Cupcakes. Amongst these great dining spots, City Centre's best kept secret is the wealth of chic fashion boutiques to shop from. Now you won't see any mega billboards or signs from the freeway/tollway stating the fashion finds, but just pull into any one of the many valet spots or free parking garage, step out and you'll be in shopper's paradise. Precisely positioned in all the right places, you will find hipster Free People, the gorgeous Anthropologie, the very chic Elaine Turner, LMD and oh yes Urban Outfitters opening this summer (we've been stalking the construction)!
Shop, sip, eat and relax, we love this place! We love City Centre so much we hosted our "Confessions of the Collection" Spring Preview in the beautiful Geisha Lounge of RA Sushi City Centre. In addition to our own event, we've been to several fabulous fashion previews at City Centre inside of Hotel Sorella and Mona Lisa Lounge. The latest fashion show we attended at City Centre was on Thursday, May 19th, hosted by Modern Luxury and featuring designs from LMD, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. The fashion show was actually outside in the centre's outdoor entertainment area, with the runway leading from Hotel Sorella and LG Entertainment centered on the stage surrounded by the centre's beautiful fountains; it was a gorgeous sight. White lawn chairs were set up on the greens for attendees as we were offered lite bites from the food station provided by Ruggles Green. Anywhere you were seated or stood you had a great view, LG Entertainment was on point with the beats and the models looked great. The boutiques showcased an adequate eclectic mix of fashion trends predicted for the warmer season of Summer with hair and makeup reflecting the 2011 trend of easy, laid back sophistication. So it's safe to say you don't have to run out into the congested hustle & bustle of the Galleria or Rice Village shopping areas. We are sure you can find all of your fashion needs right in the lovely convenience of City Centre. Check out the pics of some our favorite outfits and hopefully we will see you at the Centre soon!
Our Confession: We love to mix Q's Collections' clothing and accessories with hippy accessories from Free People & Anthropologie.
