If you follow Style Lush TV, chances are you’ve heard us talk about our friends and partners at OPEN Pop Up Shops. OPEN is an incredible initiative by The City of San Antonio and its Center City Development and Operations Department (CCOD). By partnering with downtown property owners and retailers, they offer local entrepreneurs a no-cost, short-term lease in a vacant downtown property. This initiative, has been so successful that some tenants actually found themselves with a permanent brick and mortar, like two time winner of Retailer of the Year, Elsa Fernandez of Eye Candy Boutique. By introducing new, creative, and temporary retail locations with visual aesthetic, OPEN creates an environment that hits on so many social and economic goals. It brings a progressive-city vibe to downtown, engages customers, both local and tourist, and authenticates downtown as a vibrant urban space, ready for long-term investment. Tis the season for its annual Holiday Market, and we here at Style Lush TV, could not wait for this to begin.

Carefully curated by OPEN’s manager, Cody Shown, the fashionable shopper is sure to find the best of the best when it comes to quality merchandise. From jewelry to apparel, culinary treats and home decor, the gift ideas at this year’s market are endless.

Of course we needed to have some fun with the apparel, so by challenge of OPEN’s Manager, it was our task to create an outfit, using as many local OPEN Holiday Market boutiques as possible. The result? My favorite holiday date night outfit of the year. Five, count ’em, FIVE wonderful local boutiques are featured below and every single piece is still available (but not for long) on Houston St.

One of the great things about OPEN’s Holiday Market is that the apparel styles are, in fact, diverse. Know someone who would love a gorgeous piece of our culture? How about this intricately embroidered work of art from Mexico Lindo?
