Here’s eight where to shoptions for July:

I Am Clothesminded Vintage
Cute vintage boutique has opened in Richardson in the Promenade North Plaza at 650 N. Coit Rd. #2381 — a new storefront that not only gives them a better way to display their clothes, shoes, and accessories from the ’60s to the ’00s, but also to improve the customer experience, allowing room for thumbing through, trying on, and hanging out. They have new stuff coming in all the time and owners John and Jill Morrow Titus have a fabulous eye — check out this adorable patchwork vest and skirt.

Kendra Scott
Lifestyle and accessories brand has opened a store in NorthPark Center — its eighth in DFW and 140th store the across the U.S. The NorthPark store offers the full expression of Kendra Scott’s retail experiences: from Kendra Scott Color Bar design studio to Kendra’s latest brand collections, including The Fragrance Collection, The Watch Collection by Kendra Scott, and
Yellow Rose by Kendra Scott, featuring jewelry pieces made with turquoise, oxidized silver, and vintage gold.

Luxury home shop first opened in 2003 by sisters Kelli Ford and Kirsten Fitzgibbons, departed its longtime quarters in Highland Park Village for more spacious digs in the Dallas Design District, at 114 Express St., in a former furniture space. They now have 8,000 square feet to showcase not only their staple gifts and home decor — monogrammed linen napkins, embellished photo frames, gilded candle holders, and more — but now also artwork. More home accessories — pillows, chairs. And a lot more furniture, all one-of-a-kind.

Neiman Marcus
Legendary Dallas retailer is changing hands: Neiman Marcus Group, which includes fashion retailers Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, has
sold to Saks Fifth Avenue parent company HBC to create a luxury retail and real estate company, to combat the online world. Go support your team with a purchase at either their classic downtown location or NorthPark Center. Maybe pick up a Judith Leiber crystal beaded handbag that looks like an order of French fries, $5,995 (before tax). Come on, you know you want it.

Sue Sartor
New Orleans dress shop has opened what is only its second location in the U.S. in Dallas’ Snider Plaza at 3408 Milton Ave. Sartor is famous for those effortless dresses and kaftans that are all the rage, featuring vivid yet muted block-printed patterns made in Jaipur, India — vaguely ethnic and fairly girly, with tie bodices and the random ruffle on the sleeve. Very “summer dress” — very patio-party-hostess garb, very “you can wear sneakers with this,” and very forgiving, no matter what your body type, all priced from $125 to $400.
