Art Smart: DJ Lucy Wrubel’s Mix Of The Month

Posted in Art Smart by SMUstyle on July 21, 2011

She has deejayed for Cavalli and the Ferragamos. She has played at Cowboys Stadium. She has appeared everywhere from France to Waco. She was named one of the Top 10 deejays in Dallas by D Magazine and has been featured in PaperCity Magazine and on DailyCandy. She is DJ Lucy Wrubel. If you haven’t heard of her Mix of The Month you better keep reading! 

Each month, Wrubel hand picks an 80-minute playlist of songs ranging from party tracks to Sunday afternoon tunes and they can all be added to your iTunes with a simple click… and a check of course. We’re talking everything from euro dance to folk music (because let’s be serious, there is a little song ADD in all of us).

In order to get involved, visit . Although the 2011 subscription started February 1st and goes through January 31st, we found out that it’s not too late and you will get access to all of the previous playlists, not to mention you will be set for the beginning of the school year!

So, if you’re tired of overplaying the same songs on your iTunes or just don’t have the time to look for new songs and make playlists then we suggest you buy into this amazing Mix of the Month deal. Check out for more information.

Fashion Insider: Summer Style Tips from Manolos and Martinis

Posted in Fashion Insider by SMUstyle on July 12, 2011

Fashionista and SMU grad Merritt Beck, the name behind one of our favorite blogs Manolos and Martinis, is here to give us some style tips for summer!

Manolos and Martinis is thrilled to be featured as a guest blogger on SMUStyle! As a 2009 SMU alum and fashion blogger, it is a real treat to get to participate! When we are preparing an ensemble for a beach outing or pool party, we always look to the bathing suit first. Regardless of trends going on, you must buy a suit that looks good on you – don’t worry about what everyone else is wearing, just pick something that you feel comfortable and confident in. Whether it’s a slimming monokini or a belly-bearing bikini, choose the one that’s right for you! I typically pick swimwear with a pattern, so I then select a simple coverup that goes with the swimwear silhouette. Being a matchy-matchy gal, I combine the coverup with a similarly hued pair of sunnies. Finally, I’ll add a little flair with some luxe-looking accessories such as gold sandals, subtle jewelry, and a matching beach bag to throw all of my sunscreen, magazines and other essentials in. These are our picks for a perfect summer pool or beach party. Enjoy!

  1. J.Crew One-Piece, 2. J.Crew Bikini Top and Bottoms, 3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses, 4. MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Cuff, 5. Juicy Couture Coverup, 6. Mar Y Sol Beach Bag, 7. Dolce Vita sandals

Shop Savvy: Vintage Mobile

Posted in Shop Savvy by SMUstyle on July 10, 2011

We thought that food trucks were the new trend, but this bus boutique takes curious things on wheels to a whole new level. The Vintage Mobile, a former 1980 school bus turned into a green-vintage boutique, made its debut this weekend in Dallas.

Located next to the Belmont Hotel and Smoke restaurant,  you can find this green bus full of treasures ranging from 1950’s cowboy boots to tour shirts, purses, belts and more. Vintage Mobile was started by husband and wife Jeremy and Kelsey Turner who find their merchandise in thrift stores, garage sales, and on eBay.

Stop by the bus on Saturdays and Sundays between 11 am and 4 pm and check out their blog Vintage Mobile.
