The SIL (an acronym for “Stuff I Love”) offers exclusive pieces that can’t be found anywhere else — even on the internet. Natalie Bloomingdale launched the online shop in 2017 to share all of her favorite things, one of which happened to be the works of philanthropic Dallas designer Tish Cox. Since then, The SIL seal of approval has carried significant weight for under-the-radar labels. So when Bloomingdale tapped a slew of beloved Texas brands for her latest holiday collection, it’s clear cause for a Ranch Water toast.
Each year, Bloomindale partners with a brand that inspires her (past collabs include the Beverly Hills Hotel and The Future Perfect). This year’s pick: Charleston-based lifestyle publication Garden & Gun. Together, the brands have launched The SIL Fieldshop, showcasing artisan clothing line Mi Golondrina (Dallas), luxury apparel brand Tish Cox (Dallas), and Hayden Lasher’s luxe Italian handbags (Houston).
We spoke with Bloomingdale to learn more about the art of e-commerce curation and what she loves most about Dallas — her new hometown.
PC: What are some of your must-hit Dallas spots?
NB: Roma’s Boots, Beretta Gallery, and the bar at The Mansion. I time my trips to Dallas around Joanna Czech’s availability. I know that sounds ridiculous, but she is that incredible.
