The weather finally cooled off, and, to our dismay, stores have already begun stocking Christmas decor. But those are not the places we are visiting this month. We are exploring new arrivals to Fort Worth and new product arrivals at some tried-and-true favorites.

This sunny boutique feels like a curated H&M or Zara. New fall arrivals include lots of ​’60s-inspired shapes, fall florals, and mustard and olive green options. Shop sweaters, jackets, dresses, blouses, and skirts that are great for work and play. Plus, if you need jewelry (and new sunglasses!) to tie your outfit together, Beehive has them.

Coyote Urban Boutique
Novelty dress socks have replaced pocket squares as the men’s accessory of the season, and Coyote in Sundance Square is now stocking some of the hottest styles around. From the silly dog- and taco-patterned to the hilarious I Heart Spam and Zero Fox Given, these socks are sure to start conversations. Plenty of new arrivals for the ladies stay true to Coyote’s signature urban/rustic blend.

Daiso Japan
Shop everything from groceries to home décor to beauty products and more at this Japan-based dollar (or $1.50) store, where the majority of products cost exactly six quarters. (The first one in North Texas opened in Carrollton in July 2015.) It opens November 18 on Tarrant Parkway at Interstate 35 in Fort Worth, with plenty of swag bags, giveaways, and samples.

Pax & Parker
This men’s and women’s fashion boutique founded by two TCU alumni stocks Rebecca Taylor textiles for the first (and hopefully not the last) time in a capsule pop-up. Shop work pants, silk tops, date-night blouses, and more until November 15. Owner and women’s buyer Alari Paxson’s favorite piece? A leather moto jacket with lots of zipper detail and a jersey lining.

TCU Florist
Is your usual hostess gift routine — flowers or a bottle of bubbly — getting stale? TCU Florist has a recently expanded offering of gift baskets featuring a number of new vendors, such as Fort Worth Fudge Co. Shop themed baskets like Coffee, Toffee & Fruits with Cowtown-roasted Rodak’s Coffee, or build your own basket with made-to-order Lady Jane Scones. You can buy online, but if you shop in store, you can also browse the greeting cards and holiday décor.

Golden Globes 2016: Best and worst fashions from the red carpet

Golden Globes Fashion

The 73rd Golden Globes red carpet gave onlookers a lot to love — and hate. These are the best and worst dressed from the 2016 awards show.

From a fashion perspective, the 73rd Golden Globes [http: /www.goldenglobes.com/] was a checkbox of runway trends — plunging necklines or high-neck gowns with capes, skirts with pockets, wispy slip dresses and goddess gowns in pastel shades — along with eye-catching looks in a mustard color and serious gowns in black or white (or both). There was plenty to love — and hate. Here are some of our observations from the big evening. --- "It's just so different than anything I've ever done," Jennifer Lopez said about her Giambattista Valli gown that evoked a bit of '40s Hollywood glamour with a cape over the shoulders and skirt with flowing train. The color, which Lopez described as "mustard yellow/marigold" is a hard one to wear, but she pulled it off. And the thigh high slit evoked memories of Angelina Jolie's famous Oscar skirt [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2107113/Oscars-2012-Angelina-Jolies-right-leg-attracts-attention-mocking-15-000-Twitter-followers.html].

It's the second year in a row for Hauser to appear at FWSSR; in 2022, he and fellow cast mates drew huge crowds.

Frontier Airlines clears cheap, unlimited travel pass for takeoff from Dallas-Fort Worth

All you can fly

Cheap flights are at North Texas travelers' fingertips as Frontier Airlines offers its all-you-can-fly summer and annual passes. The “Go Wild” passes really do offer unlimited flights to unbounded destinations — both international and domestic — starting May 2.

Both passes are currently deeply discounted. The summer pass, which runs from May 2 to September 30, is available for $399 (compared with $999), and the year-round pass starting on the same day is going for $1,299 (formerly $1,999).

This deal is best for people who travel light and plan fast. Booking options allow domestic flights to be purchased one day in advance, while international gives a little more leeway, with 10 days, and neither include luggage allowances. Still, bags can be purchased as usual, and since the passes cost about as much as an average or slightly higher flight in their respective farthest reaches, it would only take a few uses to practically pay for itself.

Another consideration is blackout dates; not an insignificant number. There is at least one every month, with other, more restrictive months like March, 2024, blacked out on about a third of dates. The pass also auto-renews, so buyers will need to pay attention or be prepared to extend their travel marathon.

Frontier flies out of Terminal E at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. In November 2022, the airlines introduced new service from DFW to Baltimore (BWI), Orange County, Calif. (SNA), New York City (LGA), Raleigh-Durham (RDU), and Montego Bay (MBJ). With the new routes, Frontier now serves 19 destinations from DFW.

“Frontier’s consistent growth at DFW is a tremendous success story,” said Daniel Shurz, senior vice president, commercial, Frontier Airlines, said in a statement at the time of the announcement. “It’s clear DFW will serve a central role in the expansion of our network for years to come."

The straightforward all-you-can-fly deal prioritizes flexible travelers, but offers extensive usefulness to someone willing to work around common travel dates and spend a few extra dollars to pack comfortably. More information about the “Go Wild” passes is available at flyfrontier.com.
