Dallas shopping
I noticed we have no general thread on Dallas shopping, so thought I'd start one ...

The expanded/expanding Northpark is probably our current bright spot ... I'm loving the new Nordstrom's ... has anyone tried Bistro N yet? I hear they are excavating as I type for the return of Barneys ...

There's a lot missing in Dallas, but what are your favorite spots?

Hey there! I am in Dallas.

I love love love love the store Forty Five Ten. That is my store. Love it to death.

I actually haven't been into the new Norstroms. I need to go.

I promised myself I would stay out of Neimans for awhile. Ha So I stay out of the mall.

I might stop into that one store in Snyder Plaza every once and awhile. They have Louboutins and things here and there. I can't recall the name...oh Sebastian's....

...and I have never been into the store in the Gallaria....that is located right by the Westin...why can't I remember the name? I called them to get a Novak by Mcqueen and the owner told me he wouldn't let me buy it unless I bought things from then...so screw that.

I basically....just shop at Neimans....and basically 4510 ...and have the rest shipped in. Dont like anything else.

Aha! Finally someone in Dallas ...

Yes, I like Forty Five Ten too, and one of the things I like is they're friendly and don't march to the Dallas drummer there ...

I'll have to check out Sebastian's, haven't been there I don't think ...

Yeah, Gregory's ... hmmm, not nice! Their stuff is not really to my taste, but I was thinking of some YSL shoes and imagine I'd be able to find them there. It seems that even when they buy lines I like, they head in exactly the opposite direction that I would ...

But yeah, I find too that I end up ordering stuff from NY that's not available here. It's sad that we have all these designer boutiques and they're not at all the ones I want :p I grew up in the Midwest & we moved back here in the 80s, which was a real culture shock ... so it's kind of surprising now as my own style gets less and less conservative to realize how provincial big-haired Dallas really is

I agree, Neiman's is a good source, and it's really almost annoying, because I would rather shop at a mom & pop specialty store, but their buyers are really good.

I was noticing recently in back issue of D that Stanley Korshak carries Lanvin ... have you tried them?

I was also hoping someone might post here who does vintage in Dallas ...

oh yeah Stanley Korshak....I always forget to go there. I live seriously 2 seconds from there....just get in my car drive 2 seconds and part. I never ever ever go there. I went one time and liked it.

Lanvin..great...I am going to go this weekend and get myself in trouble.

I posted somewhere about vintage in Dallas did you see it?

But yeah I hate Gregorys. The owner is an #@$%$#%$.

They opened one in Houston...and the asst manager used to be my Jimmy Choo guy..he calls me all the time...and I am like so sorry but I hate the owner...and I will never buy from you.

plus I went in the Gregory's houston..and they carry all the high end stuff...but they had high end fake paddingings by Chloe for $600 and I am like..screw that...you sell YSL and Mcqueen and have fake bags. cya later.

Sebastain's is okay....its nice for a top of 2 or if you want Louboutins...the owner's wife is the buyer and she has horrible taste. The SMU girls LOVE it...its really cutesy stuff and that isn't me.

anyway...love dallas. love Texas. Its a me thing.

does anyone ever go to Austin....I recommend By George. Love it.

the uptown green house is ahab bowen (good dresses, tshirts, i can always find something there)

i suggest pandamoneum for jewelry (yes, its all funky, yes you have to search)

Zolas-- lots of stuff, in oakcliff i think

ragwear on preston? i think now--- its by preston and lbj

hmmm, Garland Road Thrift Store is like my absolute fav. i love searching and looking through everything!

i think Gratitude is the store someone else was talking about in another thread across from the exxon.

Be sure to report back & let us know what kinda trouble you got in As mentioned elsewhere, I loved Lanvin resort but *not* spring, looking forward to seeing fall.

You know, speaking of Gregory's ... isn't it illegal to require people to buy other merchandise in order to get the good stuff? I seem to remember some big scandal about Hummel dealers (you know, the figurines) who required people to buy the less-desirable stuff in order to get the good stuff ... Something to look into on a day when you're feeling evil ...

I do like Louboutins, esp the espadrilles, that's what I have ... I must say you said the magic kiss of death word, SMU girls love it

Have to tell you a story ... I went to TCU & shortly after I graduated a friend & I were in Harolds on University in FW on Sat afternoon. An SMU girl was in there (I guess she got lost), wearing this flashy silk dress & heels considerably more appropriate for evening. She was going off about how badly TCU girls dress, actually wearing sweats to class rather than dressing properly I'm afraid I made a sarcastic comment or two, and my friend (a TCU student) & I were most amused ...

Speaking of Austin, I like how women in Austin dress, it's so cheerful.

As far as restaurants, I'm probably not very hip--OK make that definitely. I'm still mourning the demise of the Riviera. Uptown one of my favorite places is the Highland Park Pharmacy. When I go to the hospital district I like to stop by Two Sisters. When I try someplace fancy like Aurora I'm almost inevitably disappointed ... and I do not like being disappointed

Thanks for all the vintage tips I haven't explored vintage in quite awhile & I want to ...

I will def let you know how I am bad. I am feeling its a good Saturday to run over to Stanley...then Neimans and maybe Snyder Plaza. I might do it!

I think Gregory's we should just go in there..and try on like 50 things and be like...ah I will just get them in NY to save tax. bye! hahaha. that would be soooo funny!

I love Austin. I went to school there.....its nice and casual. The nice thing about dallas is it isn't casual.....so that is fun. I wear all my fun clothes.

I have been to the green house vintage store. I am highly prone to smells and it had the smell of a vintage store and it freaked me out! the jewelry and handbags are cute!!!!

That is funny about the TCU story. When you go into Sebastians there is always a mother daughter combo....also in there buying a million things and the girl like oh this would be great for a mixer and this for a formal blah blah. cracks me up. I am sure I was like that when I was in college.

as far as restaurants go...I love Cafe Toulesse and
Hibiscus on Know/Henderson. Its yummy!
