It hardly seems anywhere NEAR time to even think about the holidays with the summer temps we have in Dallas, but this wonderful thing we have called Partners Card is all the catalyst Dallasites need to roust themselves out of the office or house to start–> and complete holiday preparations.  Partners Card offers 20% off at multiple retail locations, benefitting The Family Place to help victims of family violence, for ten days of shopping on sale. The city goes mad. The smart head straight to Mecox to complete their gift shopping and freshen up their homes before their guests arrive.

Slim Aarons on www.CourtneyPrice.comSlim Aarons is all the rage… and while one can buy Slim Aarons prints at various other locations, MECOX can order these fab prints in custom sizes of your choice– we’re talking BIG. With Slim, bigger is always better.

This one measures at 54 X 76  and makes quite the statement.
