Anthropologie, the retailer known for its twee and often vintage-inspired fashions and home goods, opened its first BHLDN "shop within a shop" store in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. The sister label, pronounced “beholden,” launched as an online bridal collection in 2011 and has since expanded to two standalone brick-and-mortar stores in Chicago and Houston. But the Beverly Drive location, taking up 1,000 square feet on the mezzanine level of the existing 10,000-square-feet Anthropologie store, represents the first time both brands have coexisted in the same space.

Anyone who has set foot in Shareen Vintage, a vast downtown warehouse space lined with endless racks of sparkly cocktail frocks, gauzy hippie robes and an eclectic mix of other garments, will hardly be surprised to learn that the shop's owner, Shareen Mitchell, is starring in a new reality show, "Dresscue Me," premiering Tuesday on Discovery's Planet Green channel.

I enjoy the Her World column every week, and I am writing about something I have noticed on so-called "travel clothes" for women: The dresses (and maybe skirts too) don't have any pockets. Who designs these things? Obviously someone who has never been on a plane or stayed in a hotel. Where can I stash my room key if I just want to walk to the hotel lobby for a moment? Men's travel wear usually has numerous pockets, including zippered security ones. I won't buy travel dresses until they put pockets in them.

It's hard to miss those paparazzi shots of celebrity toddlers being toted around by their famous parents, kids who are dressed, well, to look just like mom or dad.
