The vibe for 2023 is being a well-rounded person. And what better way to illustrate that in our lives than in the places we shop and in the items that we buy. From luxe skincare to fancy dog food and even fancier golf gear, the list this month checks off pretty much every consumer’s box.
Abercrombie & Fitch
Yes, your teenage years are calling, and they wanted to ask you to give your clothes from that time another chance. This new and improved version of the iconic brand is opening in NorthPark Center on level one near Macy’s and invites you to shop for comfy clothes, denim, and that iconic fragrance that will serve up some serious nostalgia.
Where does your meat come from? University Park residents Kate and Jeff Cutshall are challenging Dallasites to know that exact answer by embracing their new whole animal butchery on Lovers Lane. The shop offers meat, milk, eggs, and sauces — some of which are sourced from less than 100 miles away. The store even offers dog food for those who like to give their pets the best bowl of puppy chow on the block.
The Dondolo Love Collection 2023 was the obvious name for the spring collection from a brand that loves details and loves giving back. The outfits were created by designer and owner Catalina Gonzalez as pieces for kids to wear when celebrating beautiful moments in life whether that be a baby shower, baptism, Valentine’s Day, or birthday party.
Just in time for January resolutions comes the first fitness and active collection from the New York-based girly brand. Available at their Highland Park Village boutique, the line includes leggings, sports bras, bike shorts, tank tops, and flippy miniskirts, done in a stretchy polyester-spandex blend, with the sweet florals, pastel colors, and frilly touches that are LoveShack Fancy's trademark.
Kemo Sabe Pop Up
Aspen's not-so-best kept secret has pulled its roving trailer into the Fort Worth Stockyards for a pop-up, stocked with its signature Western goods including cowboy boots, hats belts, buckles, and jewelry. Whether you pick up a Stetson or Kemo Sabe's own Grit hat brand, you can count on the sales wranglers to personalize your purchase on the spot. The pop-up is at 128 E. Exchange Ave. #570 through January 22.
Dallasites go bananas for anything with Parisian roots, and that includes this fashionista name, now with its own dedicated boutique at NorthPark Center, on level one in between Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s in late November. Headed by iconoclastic designer John Galliano, Maison Margiela embraces a classic yet visionary style, both daring and ambiguous, from oversized shirts to smart little ankle boots.
Serena & Lily
Love Serena & Lily but can’t stomach the price tags? Had your eye on a particular piece while doing your weekly Knox District stroll? Run don’t walk to the store's floor model sale to score mega discounts on the products — beds, pillows, dressers, quilts, marble door-stoppers — that are as aesthetically pleasing as any other in the wide world of furniture. It runs through February 16; however, I wouldn’t wait as it's first come first serve and once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
Guys and gals who fancy golf gear and apparel are going to freak when they shop this new shop, now open in Inwood Village. The Dallas location is the first retail shop for Stitch, which was founded in North Carolina, and its branding is inspired by vintage cars. Shoppers can expect bags, high-end travel bags, stylish apparel, and duffer gear that make golfers go gaga.
