Dallas designer shares glamorous life and style in new book

Jan Showers’s new book, “Glamorous Living,” is a reminder of why our home interiors are so important. Done well, they can energize us or comfort us on any given day. They can unite families and provide a perfect footprint for great parties, large and small.

Showers is a rock star in the Dallas design world, though she started her firm later than most, waiting until her children were grown. She’d been helping friends with home-decorating projects when in the mid-1980s she realized she could be busy enough to have a full-time job.

Her design firm — Jan Showers and Associates — expanded in 1995 to include a showroom for antiques. A few years later she launched her own furniture collection, the Jan Showers Collection, which has been sold across the country for nearly 20 years.

“Glamorous Living” (Abrams; 224 pp.; $65) is Showers’s third book, following “Glamorous Rooms” in 2009

With Beauty Bar’s Closure, DJs Ponder the Future of Dallas Nightlife

Beauty Bar officially closed the doors to its short-lived Deep Ellum location last week, the latest in a string of devastating closures in the Dallas music and nightlife community. While the club barely survived a year in Deep Ellum, it leaves behind a rich legacy of sleepless nights, mostly thanks to its eight-year run on Henderson Ave. Though the concept didn’t quite translate across town, Beauty Bar always remained a place that anyone and everyone could show up and show out on the dance floor.

For DJs, it was a venue where they could take creative liberties, carve out their niche, and draw in an audience that really cared about music. It was the antithesis of the soulless bottle service clubs that seem to be multiplying across the city, and its absence leaves a gaping hole in the landscape. Reflecting on years of memorable and formidable experiences at the iconic

Arike Ogunbowale Talks Fashion, The Dallas Wings, And Social Justice

Arike Ogunbowale is one of the WNBA’s fastest rising stars. In just her second season in the league, she averaged a league-high 22.8 points on 41% shooting, 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. In doing so, she earned the 2020 WNBA Peak Performer Award for scoring after posting the highest scoring average by a second-year player in league history.

The former Notre Dame guard took over games with ease this season, and was one of the more dependable figures on a young Dallas Wings team that was hindered by injuries this season. In 2020, Ogunbowale had 37 straight games in double-figures scoring, good for the second-longest double-digit streak in franchise history. She also had four games in which she scored at least 30 points.

As she showed this year in Bradenton, Florida, Ogunbowale is a force to be reckoned with in the WNBA. And off the court, she’s making
