Whether August for you means back-to-school or just surviving this heat, you've got a reason to shop these stores. As if you really ever "needed" a reason.
We heart Abi because she supports other women. Case and point: La Viajera, aka the cutest bag company based in East Dallas, is heading to the West Village style staple for an epic pop-up shop from August 24-27. These Colombian-made bags will surely be your new obsession. Enjoy We The Birds Macarons and cocktails on August 24 and then swing by to shop the oh-so-adorable mochilas bag throughout the rest of the weekend.
Dallas' Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection has an Hermès scarf collection that just launched, and you know we are all about supporting local. The scarf, Parures de Samouraïs, features a design by artist Aline Honoré that pays homage to samurai warrior adornments from the 14th and 18th century. The silk twill design retails for $395, is available in 12 color varieties, and will be sold online and at select Hermès boutiques (including this one at Highland Park Village).
Heading back to school or just craving a little organization as fall approaches? You must head into the Lauren James boutique at the Shops of Legacy and pick up the Lauren James lifestyle planner. It's way more than a 12-month planner, with a place to write down goals, track water consumption, and plan meals for the week. The best news? It will only cost you $28, which is way less than the competition.
This hand-embroidered clothing company is exactly what we need to help survive the dog days of summer. Specifically the new arrivals, which include easy, breezy, extremely beautiful dresses that fit every body type perfectly. Buy online or visit the showroom Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
Highland Park Village scored the first standalone store outside of New York, and its doors are officially open. The company is known for its signature Dickey jacket and expertly tailored tops, pants, dresses, and more. Veronica Beard was founded in 2010 by sister-in-laws Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard after noticing a void in the market for cool, classic, and chic clothing that you could actually live in.
William Noble is moving back to where it all began for the brand in Highland Park Village, until mid-2018 when its permanent showroom is ready. Until then, shoppers get to benefit from the store's divine selection of rare jewels, estate jewelry, engagement rings, everyday essentials, and statement pieces. And for those who can't make it into the store, the brand (which has now dropped the "Rare Jewels" from its name) has become the first Dallas-based luxury jeweler to launch an online shop.
The earring-obsessed should travel to the Plaza at Preston Center for Maria Tash's piercing event August 23-26. Haven't heard of Maria Tash? Christina Aguilera, Ruby Rose, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Beyoncé all have — they're just a few of the celebs who go wild for the jewelry designer's elegant, stylish, and slightly edgy earrings, many of which are designed specifically for cartilage piercings. Tash has stores in New York and London, but this is the first time her piercers are heading out on the road to Texas. Piercings range in price from $15-$35, and there will be a small selection of gold hoops starting at $60 and traditional earrings for first and second lobes starting at $50 per piece. Cartilage studs will start at $100.
