You are over summer fashion. The maxi skirt trend is responsible for two recent face-plants; the white jeans Dallas ladies seem to relish are a no-go for someone with a sangria obsession; and if you see one more adult woman wearing a romper, you will blog about the evils of Lena Dunham SO hard. You’re craving fall and the softer, cozier clothing it heralds. Sate your appetite for autumnal apparel at The Fashion Show on Friday at South Side on Lamar, 1409 S. Lamar St. Starting at 7 p.m., you can immerse yourself in style with a bevy of beauty vendors, a variety of cocktails and a runway show by Don’Chunte Foster, who will showcase her label “Muse by Don’Chunte.” Foster’s fall collection will take front and center, giving you ample inspiration for the coming months — and if you’re compelled to take something home with you, pieces will be available at a discount for attendees. The event will be hosted by KKDA-FM 104.5 K104’s Hollywood. Tickets are $15 at the door. For more information, visit themusefeed-esm.eventbrite.com.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
