The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has amazing shopping. There are so many one of a kind boutiques and name brand stores that line the streets, that it's hard for a girl to keep track of! Before I had this job (where I have to wear steel toed boots and old t-shirts and old jeans) I had a job where I could actually dress nice. So shopping was a weekly habit and I just know you're going to LOVE these places in Dallas. So if you're ever in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area these are the places you want to shop till you drop.
The Shops at Highland Village
Sounds fancy already right? Super cute village-type shopping where you can park and walk all over. It's an outdoor mall with anchor stores like Banana Republic and Barnes & Nobles, but also has totally awesome boutiques like Apricot Lane and Francesca's. Restaurants are strewn about the village and this is also where you can find Patrizio's, one of my fave restaurants I told you about here. There's also a beautiful movie theater and TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Ross, and Marshalls are all across the street too!
Ever heard of this one? It's Amaze-Balls. If you're looking for a new purse or accessory like bracelets, watches, or earrings this is the place to go. It's inexpensive and but totally fashion forward. The stores are huge too so if you have a man who doesn't like to shop, send him to go watch a baseball game at one of the nearby restaurants...you're gonna be in here a long time!
City of Denton, TX Town Square & City of McKinney, TX Town Square
The picturesque town squares you see on postcards. With historic buildings, quaint antique shops, mom & pop restaurants, and fun boutiques, these two are definitely a good choice for lazy Saturday afternoons. Lots of really nice people, good food, and unique finds are what you'll encounter in these town squares. If you're in the area, these are a must see!
Denton in the evening during the holidays
Southlake Town Square, Southlake, TX
For the ultimate in high end shopping you should head to Southlake. Their town square has it all. With shops like Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, and Impeccable Pig who wouldn't want to shop there? Impeccable Pig is one of my favorites! Boutiques, designer stores, mall regulars, nightlife bars and clubs, and fabulous dining. Definitely a fun place to take all your friends to!
There's SO many other places to shop in Dallas I'll have to do a Part II on Where to Shop! Hope you enjoyed and don't take my word for it...go find out for yourselves how awesome these places are!
