It's February, and we are officially in love with not only the new stores in town but the various expansions and pop-ups, too. Which store will you visit to buy yourself a little treat?
Launching on February 16, this brand by Marty McDonald is named for her daughter and features clothing and accessory options for babies, toddlers, and moms. The line also features a book by the founder titled Mama We Made It. The brand is meant to inspire girls of color and their allies to discover and use their voices from a young age and to see true representation.
Flea Style Frisco
The Star's most stylish shop is growing even bigger with the expansion of the hat bar and a renovated event space. The improvement of both spaces allows Flea Style to accommodate more custom hat creations and to host larger groups for custom hat parties. The new 6,200-square-foot event space also includes Heirloom Haul, a restaurant inspired by antique mall tearooms that serves scratch-made food, seasonal lattes, and afternoon tea service.
This classic denim company has opened a gorgeous new NorthPark shop on level one between Macy's and Dillard's. Perhaps most notably, the space features a tailor shop in the middle that allows customers to customize jeans with colorful buttons, waistband patches, Levi's pocket tabs, and more. The store also features traditional tailoring services like hemming and alternations.
It's an installation with a clear and important message — Buy Good, Buy Black. The Plano shop's exciting exciting initiative aims to support underrepresented founders across all backgrounds and demographics. Some of the brands launching include Wrap Life, Aya Paper, Soko, Cadence Candles, and more.

The Planting Hand
Karla Gallegos opened her Greenville Avenue plant shop on February 12. While working at HG Sply Co., Gallegos began taking care of the restaurant's rooftop greenery as a hobby of sorts. By the end of this labor of love, the volunteer project turned in to a thriving herb and vegetable garden that still exists today. This passion project turned into a career as she jumped into this new brick-and-mortar space of her own just down the street.
