THE SCENE: A beautiful Sunday afternoon at the home of Fashion X Austin founders Matt and Kara Swinney was the setting where Austin’s chic were on hand to meet ABC’s The Bachelor winner and Dallas resident Catherine Lowe, who was in town for a launch of her new luxe stationery line, Lowe Co.
THE VIBE: The crowd blended seamlessly with Lowe and her team from Dallas, who along with the Swinney’s, were the consummate hosts who created as warm an environment as the bright sunshine that beamed on the day. The festive mood was accentuated by Chloe Wine Collection, who provided wine and bubbles that perfectly complemented the plethora of delicious sweet treats courtesy of Simon Lee Bakery.
Lowe offered insight of how stationery inspired her courtship on The Bachelor with her now husband, Fort Worth native Sean Lowe…with the quirky and thoughtful notes she passed onto him during their on-air courtship. In doing so, she spotlighted how impactful and important a simple note can go in developing a relationship. Taking a small moment to show someone you care with a written note can not only lift someone’s spirit, but also change their lives in ways they could never imagine.
