Nothing says back-to-school for the babies like a trip with mom or grandma to this darling Dallas boutique. This sophisticated and strategically stacked store makes shopping a breeze for the entire clam of kiddos thanks to color-coordinated outfits for boys and girls. In addition to outfit staples and stand-out pieces perfect for picture day, the flagship store (at 7801 Inwood Rd.) also is full of great gifts like books, games, classic toys, and stuffed animals.
This is not your average store opening in NorthPark Center. Located on level on between Neiman Marcus and Dillard's, this custom piercing experience combines the best of science and art. Head in to the 3,000-square-foot space to learn more about the brand's Curated Ear technique that Maria herself developed, in which clients combine studs and rings in unique stylings that reflect their personal aesthetics. Pieces for the boutique were selected by Maria, and customers can expect a lot of diamonds.
Rag & Bone
Fresh off of store refresh that includes new fixtures, furniture and rugs, the Rag & Bone in Highland Park Village is ready to welcome shoppers to celebrate the ICONS Collection. These pieces, which will be live in store for the remainder of the year, feature pieces rooted in the brand's most iconic pieces. Think blazers, bombers, denim, and leather. The fall looks are also in store with a theme of patchwork Americana, heritage fabrics, and military detail.
Men, it is your lucky day. Head to the Highland Park Village boutique to shop the Mr Turk collection, now here to stay after a smashing success at an earlier pop-up. Mr Turk is designed for men who want to make a statement with their wardrobe, featuring simple silhouettes in unique patterns, textures, and colors. The looks are inspired by California’s cocktail culture and outdoor-indoor lifestyle.
