Where to shop now
Where to shop in Dallas right now: 8 must-hit stores for December
Give us all the things. No, really. How can anyone go to to one of these stores and not be tempted to shop for themselves in addition to all of those on their Christmas lists? Haven't gotten started on your holiday shopping yet? Don't worry. Amazon Prime is alive and well, but shopping is so much more fun when it's done in person. Many of the stores on this month's list are pop-up shops, so hit them before they're gone. Cheers, Dallas shoppers.
Experience a better way to travel without leaving Dallas when you give this pop-up shop on Knox Street a visit between now and January 5. The brand is gearing up for its opening by offering a sneak peek of the store that brings the best in luggage and other travel accessories. A permanent shop will open in the same space in early 2020.
This beloved lifestyle boutique recently relocated across the street, to 1915 Greenville Ave., in the former Transit Bike Shop location. Shoppers can expect the same on-trend and affordable fashions, in addition to the home decor that has kept Dallas designer Kathy Fielder feeling like Greenville Avenue is home for her brand.
La Vie Style House Pop-Up
This Dallas-based brand is giving the people what they have been desperately wanting — a local pop-up. Nestled in Highland Park Village between Etro and Valentino, it offers fashionistas the chance to fawn over a selection of luxury caftans and kimonos through December 31. Although these luxury pieces are handmade in the United States, each is inspired by world travels. And the fact that they are one-size-fits-all makes them the perfect gift to give the glam gal in your life this holiday season.
Mod + Jo
Branded as "progressive and quality jewelry for modern babes," this quirky line recently opened its first brick-and-mortar shop in Bishop Arts across from Hola Cafe. The boutique is bursting with necklaces, rings, and earrings to complement every look. In addition to offering a chance to see and shop the collection in person, the owner will also offer ring-making classes to the public.
Located in the former On The Border space on Knox Street, this pop-up is all about making new things from old things. Think slippers, sneakers, and even chukka boots made from vintage Turkish rugs. You can also shop luggage, bags, wallets, key chains, and more. This Aspen-based brand is staying put in the Dallas boutique only until December 31.
Shop the store's first-ever museum-styled gift shop offering presents starting at just $25. You can expect everything from essential oils to chocolates. Basically it's a well-edited selection of the store's favorite things to save you the time it usually takes to agonize over what to get each person on your list. (We'll take a Nest Liquidness Diffuser, please and thank you.) Also, brides, Tootsies is hosting two special events for your big day, 10 am-7 pm December 13 and 14. A trunk show by coveted designer Monique Lhuillier will take place at the store for the first time ever, and Lisette Polny will be on hand to show off her Zofia Day holiday collection.
Returning for its fifth year in downtown Dallas, this holiday pop-up shop is better than ever. Located in the historic Dallas Power & Light Building, this marketplace of merch provides free retail space to a rotating group of designers, artists, and entrepreneurs for three weeks. Score everything from jewelry to artwork and even children's gifts now through December 21. Check out the lineup of vendors here.
Y&I Clothing Plano
The West Village is not the only place in DFW to shop this boutique that offers fabulous finds on a budget. Robin Boesch and Robyn Sribhen White recently opened a second location at The Shops at Legacy that features 1,120 square feet of fun and flirty fashion. Whether you are on the hunt for that darling date-night dress or the perfect pair of earrings to complete your look, this new store is stacked with great finds for fall (and beyond).
