Dallas

Archive

Kerry Bonnell managed Resurrection in NYC before branching out on her own, which means she has a well-honed eye for sourcing collectible vintage—of which there seems to be an abundance in Dallas. The shop has a gold mine of Chanel jackets and Ossie Clark gowns, plus rotating collections in LA's TenOverSix and NYC's Creatures of Comfort.

Cabana

So named because Cabana originally occupied the pool house at owner Merry Vose's home, the shop's newer, more spacious digs maintain the same vacation-centric vibe—aided by the beaded Megan Park belts and intricately embroidered Antik Batik caftans that line the racks.

Dolly Python

Dolly Python takes a semi-chaotic, hipster spin on an antiques mall. More than 20 dealers offer fun polyester dresses galore, rounded out with taxidermic coyotes, old cameras, and tons of vintage toys.

Forty Five Ten

Part high-end boutique, part gift store, and part tea shop, Forty Five Ten is one of the only boutiques in the country where you can score lunch, a Rag & Bone blazer, and an R. Wood plate in one very fun swoop.

Grange Hall

Styled like a spooky-meets-glamorous apothecary, Grange Hall's cabinets of curiosity are filled with everything from otherworldly floral arrangements to ultraluxe Cire Trudon candles.

Gratitude

At first glance, this packed-to-the-rafters vintage store seems totally overwhelming, but patience and tenacity are rewarded: On a recent excursion, we unearthed a YSL dress and an Issey Miyake jacket.

Neiman Marcus

Dallas is the birthplace of Neiman's, and no trip is complete without a pit stop at either the original downtown flagship or its anchoring megastore at the North Park mall (arguably the best in the country).

1618 Main St., 214-741-6911; 400 North Park Ctr., 214-363-8311, neimanmarcus.com

Stella Dallas

Office accessories compelling enough to make you want to go to work, crisp wrapping papers, and exuberantly-patterned pillows by Missoni and the Stella Dallas house line are standouts here.

The Shak

This hip offshoot of old-guard Dallas retailer Stanley Korshak has quickly proven to be one of the most on-point places in town to turn up refined small labels like Gryphon and A.L.C.

Studio Sebastian

Long a standout for upstart labels, this University Park mainstay is also allegiant to more established names like Mayle and Jill Stuart. But its biggest draw is its shoe salon, which has all the heavy hitters, from Christian Louboutin to Marc Jacobs, yet tends toward an edgier buy.

Krimson & Klover

Housed in a pastel Victorian clapboard house in a residential Dallas hood, the various rooms hold Shoshanna and Tibi dresses, along with Hudson jeans.

V.O.D.

The hyper-slick V.O.D. stocks pieces you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the state, including Isabel Marant tunics and architectural dresses by Zero + Maria Cornejo.

We Are 1976

1976 marked the launch of Apple, which is just one of the reasons for the name—and sensibility—of this newcomer. Graphic Japanese toys, adorably illustrated stationery, and retro-cute homewares abound.
