Cynthia Sakai, designer of Vita Fede—one of our favorite jewelry lines—is constantly traveling the globe for business. On a recent trip to Dallas, she documented her stay and compiled a list of her favorite places which is chock-full of noteworthy gems from the best cocktail in town to a tiny art gallery with big-time inspiration. The next time you’re in the Lone Star state, use this as your guide for where to go and what to wear.
"A few of my travel essentials—Mansur Gavriel bag, Manolo Blahnik sandals, light jewelry to match all my outfits and of course, I can't go anywhere without my Sony camera to capture special moments!"
"The Joule is my go-to hotel whenever I’m in Dallas. I love its boutique vibe while still offering all the amenities—including a cool rooftop lounge and a glass-bottom pool on a balcony overlooking Main Street.”
"Always searching for inspiration everywhere I go. A visit to Taschen Books definitely gets my creative juices flowing."
"A strong arm stack doesn't have to be heavy to create an impact. Love layering a few different styles to make a statement!"
"When on vacation, do as the locals do! In this case it was enjoying this delicious margarita at Stampede 66."
"I am always looking for inspiration and in Dallas the Nasher Sculpture Center is it. The gallery is small but presents a stimulating dose of art all in one place."
