Set your valentine’s heart aflutter with something special from one of these Dallas stores. There are a few new names to the lineup, along with old friends boasting new launches and not-to-be-missed special events. Here’s where to shop in Dallas this month:
Cool kids, rejoice. Hipster Baby is expanding its online business with a brick-and-mortar location on Custer Parkway in Richardson. Look for apparel newborns to size 6 — think Grateful Dead Tees and AC/DC onesies — and accessories and baby shower gifts. Though clothes for girls were added to the mix last year, the store is best known for its vast assortment for boys. Owner Mary Bowen founded the online boutique three years ago after having her son, the original Hipster Baby.
Forty Five Ten on Main
In case you needed another reason to visit Main Street’s glittery new attraction, Forty Five Ten is hosting a pop-up event with Leatherology February 10-11. Launched in 2008, Leatherology prides itself on providing full-grain leather goods — work totes, wallets, card cases, and more — with a luxury edge. A variety of products in a rainbow of colors will be available at the pop-up, with complimentary personalization offered on all items purchased during the event.
It’d be easy to miss it at first. Across from Forty Five Ten, tucked beneath The Joule, Le Labo is small and unassuming. But venture inside and you’ll find a treasure trove of fragrances created in collaboration with the world’s top perfumers. A first-of-its-kind concept, Le Labo blends each fragrance at the time of purchase to ensure ultimate freshness. Be sure to sample Aldehyde 44. Previously discontinued, the scent was reintroduced in honor of the store’s recent opening — and can only be found in Dallas.
Be among the first to snatch up goods from two new-to-Nordstrom collections. For her: Rosie HW x Paige. From model Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Paige, the denim-centric collection features pieces designed to take you from day to night. For him: Mizzen+Main, a line of American-made sportswear for the classic man. Both collections launch at the Nordstrom in NorthPark Center on February 15. Stop by the Men’s Sportwear department for a Mizzen+Main launch event featuring a DJ, drinks, and bites.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, NorthPark Center gets its very own Sugarfina. Known for cocktail candies, such as cordials made with single malt scotch and gummies made with champagne and peach bellinis, the Beverly Hills-based confectioner first launched in 2012 with an online store. It’s since expanded to nearly 40 locations including 15 shops inside Nordstrom stores. Lucky for you, NorthPark is home to Sugarfina’s first standalone store.
St. Michael Woman's Exchange
Gray Malin's latest is landing at St. Michael's Woman's Exchange in Highland Park Village. Complementing the Gray Malin Home Collection, the travel collection features some of the Dallas-based photographer's most iconic shots on leather luggage tags and other travel wares. Sweetening the deal, every dollar you spend in St. Michael's will be donated to someone in need. It's a model that the store, which is entirely volunteer run, has followed since 1958.
