It might be chilly outside, but River Oaks District just got a fresh dose of California sunshine. Planet Blue officially launched their new Houston store this past Wednesday, bringing with it the bohemian beach culture of Malibu and a laid-back yet creative California attitude. It's been a highly anticipated opening, as the store has a passionate online following due in part to its wide variety of designers.
The Houston location is definitely a feast for the senses—not just the store itself, but its site on the northwest edge of River Oaks District, necessitating a lovely stroll across the shopping center. It's well worth the trip—and the traffic. Planet Blue’s interior is adorned with long tables of comfy sweaters and cardigans to wrap yourself in, unique leggings and gypsy skirts, and racks and racks of dresses. So many dresses!
Whether you're planning a night out on the town or a night in, I need a moment here to really salivate over Planet Blue's huge selection of flowing, lacy, textured and otherwise fun frocks. As a dress person who tends towards the bohemian, Planet Blue's Blue Life line is a dream for boho chic—maxis, minis, you can take your pick, again and again.
To pair with your dress, Planet Blue carries a large assortment of accessories to make you swoon. From the statement necklaces of Vanessa Mooney, to the wrap-yourself-up-by-a-bonfire blankets by Jen's Pirate Booty—seriously it's about to get cold in Houston, you need to pick up one of these—to the adorable, felt Lovely Bird Hats, there is so much to choose from.
When it comes to potential gifts, I fell in love with the assortment of makeup bags with catchphrases like "Meow, I mean roar" that were on display throughout the store—too cute for words under $30 each, a must as far as I'm concerned! With the holiday season fast upon us, bringing social events, work events and family gatherings, Planet Blue is the ultimate new destination to find both something to wear and something to wrap up.
