The New York Times just posted a piece on designer Billy Reid, who peddles his "dressy-casual whiskey-soaked style" in NorthPark Center, one of only six outlets in the U.S. Which reminds dressy-casual, whiskey-soaked me: Over the weekend I received via postcard a reminder that tomorrow through Saturday is Billy Reid's Best of Dallas-winning semi-annual clearance sale at its Canton Street corporate office. Note to bossmens: Will be late in the morning. "Blogging," ahem.
Alas, this sad note: This will be the final warehouse sale in Dallas. Reid, who studied fashion design and mechandising at the Art Institute of Dallas, is relocating his corporate offices from Deep Ellum to Reid's home base of Florence, Alabama. Which sucks.
