After serious success at a Dallas pop-up last year, this fashionable shoe brand opened a permanent boutique on level two of NorthPark Center, between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. The Dallas location marks Sarah Flint's second permanent storefront opening behind its store in Nashville.

Millington was inspired by the wildly popular Juicy Couture sweatpants and track suits of the early 2000s, which have been making a comeback. Read more about the designer and brand here.
