HHH found a great accessory, especially for those clingy sweater tunics--tummy control leggings! The Marlo Miller boutique carries them, and they come in black, brown and velvet--perfect for the holidays.

Did you make it to the hip and modern Texas Contemporary Art Fair? If not, you missed a weekend-long event of art from galleries here and around the country. With a reported attendance of 10,000 (at the GRB and the off-site events) they are already committed to return in 2012. Over 3,500 Houstonians attended the opening night festivities, making it one of the most talked about events of the art season. That evening, $20,000 was raised for the night's beneficiary, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, and additional Houston area non-profits benefitted through the lively MRKTworks auction.

Texas Contemporary co-founders Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause, of Brooklyn-based artMRKT Productions, were delighted with the outcome of the fair, which featured 55 contemporary exhibitors from Houston and throughout the country and took place October 20-23 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. As the third of three art fairs presented by artMRKT Productions this year, Texas Contemporary drew considerable attention and praise from attendees and exhibitors alike, who responded to its sleek look and progressive environment. Participating dealers from the United States and abroad reported significant sales, including David Shelton Gallery who sold a suite of six Vincent Valdez drawings within the first half hour of opening night.

The Nature Conservancy of Texas hosted its 19th-annual Conservation Luncheon, sponsored by Chevron on Oct. 27 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston. Five hundred Houston-area supporters attended the event, to hear keynote speaker Jeff Corwin environmental adventurer, Animal Planet Host and NBC News Environment & Science correspondent. Kim and Dan Tutcher chaired the luncheon with Honorary Chairs, Jana and J. Scott Arnoldy. Corwin’s stories of his adventures with animals and how he became a conservationist enthralled the audience. Laura Huffman, state director of The Nature Conservancy of Texas spoke about conserving Texas’ irreplaceable natural heritage. “We are so grateful to have the opportunity to thank the leadership, intelligence and dedication of our supporters as they embrace conservation as more than a social obligation but as sound business management that inspires other business leaders in a variety of industries,” said Huffman.
