What's Haute: The Hostess with the Mostess

Wednesday, December 12, 2012
With only two weeks until Christmas, there will be parties for hosting and happy meetings when friends come to call. Which begs the question, what to wear? Cue our dear friend Katherine Heidt, personal shopper extraordinaire at the Neiman Marcus flagship store downtown. With her brilliant sense of humor and style, it will take two minutes tops before you love her as much as we do. Plus, she has her pulse set on Dallas style. You can go in and say, "Well, I want something glamorous but not over-the-top...maybe lace...or how about leather?" or some kind of sputtering nonsense, and she will pull out the perfect dress in no time. Give her a season or a brand and she'll give you the best look; text her an image of the blouse you saw yesterday and she'll have one waiting for you that no one has seen; show her what purse you want and she'll let you know if it's timeless or a trend. Really, people. Katherine is a wealth of information. Whether you want to stand out or beautifully blend into the stealthy smart dressers of stylish Dallas, Katherine is your gal. Herewith, her picks for smart hostess and guest attire for the holidays.
