UNDER THE LITTLE TOP: Cycling was the theme at Lela Rose’s store opening party at Highland Park Village in Dallas. Unicyclists zipped along the parking lot and adult trikes adorned the white tent in front of the store. “It was so hard to find unicyclists,” Lela Rose said. “My idea was to have them serving drinks on trays, but then I learned that there are unicyclists who idle and those who move. These move.” Rose isn’t just an avid cyclist, she’s are also a tequila aficionado, and guests were treated to ultra smooth Casa Dragones. “We have a tequila room at our place,” she confessed. Longtime friends and family turned out to support the designer, the daughter of top Dallas philanthropist Deedie Rose and financier Rusty Rose. They included Hunt Petroleum heir Heather Washburne, an owner of the shopping center, who admired the white holiday lights illuminating the trees. “I’m so glad they’re still on,” she said.
