Where to shop
October is the month that Texans live for: The patios. The sweaters. The outdoor activities galore. And speaking of outdoor activities, shopping seems to be a favorite one among Dallasites due, in large part, to fun stores like the ones featured this month. From openings to anniversaries and everything in between, the must-shop list this month is as sweet as a piping hot pumpkin spice latte.
Designed and manufactured in Florence, Italy, the latest collection by stationery queen Heather Wise is driven by her passion for “responsible luxury” and features leather accessories like laptop cases, journal covers, luggage tags, totes, and more. And while you're shopping, don’t forget to make an appointment to visit the Dallas Design District-based store to get your Christmas cards in order. Prices range from $115 to $950.
