Thought the Olympian looked good winning at the recent BET Awards? It was the work of a Carytown store.
“Her mother and her two sisters and her brother came in,” said Gigi Wall, manager at Lex’s of Carytown. “They wanted a fun and young look, but also classic and tasteful.”
What piqued their attention was a black and white Sherri Hill on a store mannequin. Douglas’s mother texted images of the dress to her daughter and “we got one of the sisters to try it on for Gabby,” Wall said.
The store manager said the entire family was a dream to deal with it. “They were very polite and awesome,” Wall said. She added that the store was excited to help the famous athlete because “we were all ‘Team Gabby’ during the Olympics.”
Lex’s of Carytown is located at 3020 W. Cary Street.
