For this month's Where To Shop, we explore an eclectic mix of shops that have popped up around town, from makeup and skincare for the ladies to suits for the gents to home decor for anyone who wants to turn a house into a sanctuary.
This luxury, one-stop beauty shop has opened its first Texas location in Highland Park Village (with another coming to Southlake in the fall). It offers more than 90 skincare and cosmetics brands like Laura Mercier, Nars and its signature M-61 brand, along with a laundry list of spa services. Bet you can't walk out empty-handed.
The Texas designer, whom we love for her shoes and accessories, has added clothes to the mix. The spring 2015 collection includes easy-to-wear separates for every body type in multiple silhouettes, including kaftan-inspired dresses, tunic tops, and chic pajama-style pants and shorts.
Jan Barboglio Warehouse
The Dallas designer is holding a sale at her Design District warehouse nicknamed "Beauty of the Fire," as a nod to last year's fire at the Jan Barboglio facility in Mexico. Dallas shoppers have a limited-time opportunity to own her collectibles, furnishings and decor at a major discount, including tableware, lighting accessories, mirrors, tables and chairs. Also shop 20 years of products that have never been seen before. The collection is entirely handmade with forged iron, blown glass, wax castings and more. The sale runs June 11-13.
This fair trade store in the Bishop Arts District has reopened after a big renovation. It is connected to approximately a thousand global and local causes, and every item, down to the materials and the beads, have meaning. We dig the jewelry and the stories behind the women who make it.
Frisco shoppers in need of a heartfelt card or good set of stationery have a new option with the opening of this boutique at Stonebriar Centre, the third of its kind and the first in Texas. Paper Destiny also has a selection of gifts and offers gift-wrapping services.
On June 4, NorthPark Center debuts this showroom dedicated to at-home fitness and on-demand spin classes. Peloton has transformed the at-home fitness experience by creating a bike that merges high design with modern technology to provide access to live streaming and on-demand classes by top instructors. The bike costs $1,995 and customers pay $39 a month for unlimited live streaming and on-demand rides out of the New York City studio.
Set & Co.
Interior designer Jennifer Littke has opened a seriously stunning home decor shop in Oak Cliff. The store features textiles, cutlery, handmade ceramics and more. If you're in need of a housewarming gift for a new neighbor, they can whip up the most beautiful gift box you ever did see.
Detroit-based accessories brand Shinola opened its first Texas outpost in downtown Plano last month. Whatever you are in the market for — watches, leather goods, even bicycles — you can be sure that these products are made in America, and made well.
Suitsupply West Village
This European brand is moving into Uptown to dress our businessmen. The store claims to offer real suiting for real men that really fits, at great prices that compromise neither quality nor fabric.
Sisters Britni and Kelsey Wood and their mother, Joni, opened the loveliest (pun intended) little shop in Uptown, focusing on textiles, embroidering and monogramming. The shop has 120 colors of thread and 40 monograms, and the in-house embroidery machine enables them to turn out a monogram on the spot.
