So, as I mentioned in one of my previous blog posts, I had the wonderful opportunity to try on some fabulous dresses at Casa de Novia in the River Oaks Shopping Center in Houston. For those of you who’ve never been to Texas, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Everything is big in Texas.” And that’s true, in a sense, because I can attest to the enormous shopping centers with stores and stylists you’d likely find on 5th Avenue.
Atrium Ready to Wear, a satellite company of de Novia, is also located in River Oaks. Not too long ago I did a photo shoot with Atrium, and got to try on their array of classy cocktail dresses and casual wear from fashion powerhouses such as Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung. These are the kinds of pieces you find in a Vogue spread; they’re fresh off the catwalk, and handpicked by the owner Luvi Wheelock herself. How cool is that?
The pieces at Atrium range from tailored professional attire to chunky knitwear to exotic evening dresses. It has the same intimate, boutique-y feel as de Novia, except without the wedding dresses. In that case, I think I know where I’ll be getting my next date night dress 😉1
