Meet Indie Fashionista Chaska Norwood (and Her Style) Before Tonight's B.A.D. Wine Walk

Think of how much you love the Bishop Arts District. Now add wine. It's a can't-fail sitution.

Tonight, the B.A.D. comes alive again with another Wine Walk from 6 to 9 p.m., where you can check out some of Dallas' best independently owned businesses. We caught up with Chaska Norwood, owner of Just Add Jeans, to check out some of the killer styles we can expect to see tonight.

In case you hadn't gleaned it from the store name, the concept is simple: jeans are to Norwood's sexy tops as water is to Ramen. Actually, it's nothing like that. Ramen is gross, and the blouses, flirty dresses and accessories at Just Add Jeans are young, bright and funky.

Norwood opened the Bishop Arts location on April 1, 2010, and has since expanded to the mall in her hometown, Longview. Tonight, she'll host a trunk show for fellow Longview boutique, Lemondrop Lulu's.

"Needless to say, I'm pretty busy," says Norwood, who runs the show as owner, manager, buyer and accountant. But that doesn't stop her from returning lightning-fast responses to questions via the Just Add Jean Facebook page. Because of the store's size, she also tells us that the inventory is constantly in flux, and you never know what you might find. Check out these items -- as well as some of Lemondrop Lulu's jewelry -- and pop in tonight to see what is new.
