Editor’s note: Another week has come and gone, and there’s a lot we all probably missed. But we’re looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:

1. Dallas-area model strikes a pose as fashion world's next 'It' girl. Top models can be discovered everywhere from the mall to a McDonald’s, but in the case of Bedford teenager Sara Grace Wallerstedt, it took a sharp eye at an open call to recognize superstardom was in her future. 

2. Dallas needs to roll over its policy on dog-friendly businesses. Dallas loves its dogs, and you can find man's best friend pretty much everywhere — on coffeehouse patios, at festivals, and sometimes, unfortunately, loose on the street. But one business where you will no longer find them is Lakewood Growler. 

3. Rachel Zoe charms Dallas at Italian-themed garden extravaganza. Event chairs Linda Spina and Sharla Bush happily welcomed guests to this year's stunning Under the Tuscan Sun-themed Mad Hatters Tea Party, which took place at the Dallas Arboretum on what can only be described as a picture-perfect spring day. And the men and women of Dallas didn't disappoint either, as they streamed in with mile-high hat creations and chic, bespoke toppers that had to be seen to be believed.

4. Famed Dallas shaved ice stand Aunt Stelle's closes abruptly for 2017. A major tradition of summer in Dallas has been broken: In a very last-minute decision, Aunt Stelle's Sno-Cones has decided not to open in the summer of 2017.

5. Design District restaurant from Tim Headington jumps on Italian bandwagon. A second Design District eatery from Tim Headington is here. Called Sassetta, it's an Italian restaurant and it opened on May 2. Tucked inside the Decorative Center at the corner of Oak Lawn Avenue and Hi Line Drive, it joins Wheelhouse, Headington's recently opened gastropub, and a grab-and-go market called Go Go, which will open soon.
