FIRST TIME’S THE CHARM: Jennifer Meyer was so enthralled with her first visit to Dallas that she was planning a comeback. The designer was feted in Beth Ewing’s home Wednesday at a cocktail party followed by a rooftop dinner for 38 hosted by Ylang 23 atop the Joule Hotel. “It’s a pretty amazing welcome, to say the least,” said a bubbly Meyer. “I’m loving Dallas and bummed that I have just one day here.”
Tobey Maguire, her husband, joined the group for dinner and also stopped by Ylang 23 on Thursday to see the new space, which opened in February. The designer’s entire trunk show was posted on Ylang 23’s Web site, but Meyer didn’t know the retailer had sold one of her $20,000 18 karat gold disc necklaces online.
“It’s crazy, crazy,” said Joanne Teichman, co-owner of the store. “We sold several pieces at $20,000, which is not her normal price point, and people are buying multiples of her regular things and layering them. It’s a love fest.”
