Dallas is home to more designer boutiques than you know what to do with — not that that's such a bad thing. If you're looking for high-end designers, my first suggestion is heading straight to Highland Park Village. Set in the tony neighborhood of Highland Park, this ritzy outdoor shopping center boasts labels such as Yves Saint Laurent, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Ralph Lauren and Chanel. There's also Scoop NYC, which carries contemporary fashion labels, and is always a great place to hit. And if all that shopping works up an appetite, you can indulge in top-notch Tex-Mex at Mi Cocina (one of my favorites).
Of course, NorthPark Mall is home to tons of designers. In fact, strolling through the mall is more like attending a fashion show. Whether you're looking for Louis Vuitton, Burberry and Hervé Leger or Versace, Valentino and Carolina Herrera, you'll find it at NorthPark. There's also Barneys New York and Neiman Marcus within the mall.
If you're looking to find it all in one place, you'll want to head to Preston Center and check out Tootsies. The exclusive boutique carries top-of-the-line designers from formal wear to contemporary clothing. It's a must-hit.
