When Ralph Lauren in the Galleria invited the founders of Dec My Room to hold a benefit shopping night in the sleek boutique, Susan Plank and daughter Kendall Plank were on it. Building support for their non-profit, which decorates hospital rooms for youthful patients receiving long-term care, is at the top of their wish list.

For the event, Kendall, a freshman at Texas A&M University, dressed the Ralph Lauren part in an iconic Black Label open cardigan worn over a white silk top by Rag & Bone, fitted jeans by Vince and stylish wedge boots from Fendi. The sunglasses, matching those of the mannequin, are Ralph Lauren as well.

The designer connection could not have been more appropriate for Kendall, a starter for the A&M polo team. No surprise, Ralph Lauren is her favorite.
