Rio Ritz brings Brazilian chic to West Village

If Thais Moses looks familiar, it might be because you've seen her on Bravo's Courtney Loves Dallas as one of Courtney Kerr's no-nonsense besties. Looking to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, Moses plans to be known as the go-to girl for approachable and fashionable styles on a budget, backed by her ability as a talented buyer.  Her effortless style will be made available to the public with the opening of her new boutique, Rio Ritz located in Uptown on Saturday, April 5 (1pm).

Moses likes to say she was “made in America, born in Brazil”  and with this new store she is bringing sought after fashion accessories and apparel, already available online, to the consumer directly. Rio Ritz plans to stand apart with its exclusive styles and offer a trendy yet refreshing line of products.

The inspiration behind the name ‘Rio Ritz’ stems from Thais’ home country of Brazil, where she gained invaluable exposure to the fashion and textile industries at an early age through her family’s business.

“As a young mom of three children under age three, it’s hard for me to ever find anything inexpensive that I feel great in, so I just divert back to the old t-shirt and heels. I want to make a point of delivering quality, stylish and affordable items in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere,” Moses says of her store. Rio Ritz also differentiates itself by carrying a limited supply of hand-made accessories and apparel in support of local and international small businesswomen.  Rio Ritz offers competitive pricing, with most items ranging from $25 - $75.

Rio Ritz Boutique is located at 2722 Routh Street, Dallas, TX 75201, (469) 458-3570.
