Since their inception, The Shoppes at BLU Water Creek have been the premier shopping location for all lifestyle needs of local women. Dash & White is the newest shop at the center and has already been stirring a buzz in the community. At the helm of this mid-century modern home decor haven is owner Kelsey Rasco. Rasco lived in Portland for some years before moving back to Fargo and such West Coast ideals are reflective of the merchandise you can find at the store. Dash & White carries goods from eco-friendly products like reusable sandwich bags to products made by sustainable small businesses to stylish (and pastel) appliances. If you follow along with the shop on social media, you probably have a good idea of who Rasco is, with her pastel pink hair and welcoming and authentic personality. If her zest for life hasn’t led you into the shop yet, come with us as we introduce you to offerings you can find when you step foot into Dash & White.
Fill your home with mid-century modern statement pieces, whether it be a buffet table, ottoman or even some down-filled throw pillows. Mid-Century modern designs have been trending in our area and make for the perfect blend of the sleekness of modernity but with the warmth we crave in the cold months.
Set the scene for your perfect brew to start the day. Dash & White is the only certified Smeg dealer in North Dakota, supplying goods like this stunning espresso machine, along with their signature toasters, mini-refrigerators, electric kettles, blenders and more. Sip your brews from a golden-detailed “From Fran” mug, handmade in Queens, New York. To complete the scene, purchase some humorous beans from Harry Potter-inspired coffee roaster, 9 3/4 Coffee & Tea Co and sweeten the cup with chic Luxe Cube sweeteners.
Dash & White celebrates the concept of self-pampering and encourages its customers to live a little. Rather than cracking open a can after a long day, concoct yourself a craft cocktail from your home. Dash & White carries the brand Viski, a line coming in various metals and designed for the upscale bartender in all of us. Shake and strain your beverage in their gold shaker and matching Hawthorne strainer, also available in gunmetal and rose gold. For a simpler process, but just as upscale of an outcome, pour a glass of wine in these ombre wine glasses and drop in some rose quartz wine gems to make it the perfect temperature.
While Dash & White is located at The Shoppes at BLU Water Creek, a primarily women-centric shopping center, the store has a variety of masculine and neutral products. Leather, wood and matte black always make for a sophisticated scene and Dash & White has no shortage of such.
