Clothes Circuit >>
in the affluent Park Cities, the upscale women’s resale shop has
catered to Dallas socialites for 21 years. On the racks are gently used
designer names such as Chanel, Roberto Cavalli, Michael Kors, and Lela
Rose at 30 to 40 percent off original retail prices. A pair of beige
and black Chanel sling-backs and Bruno Magli beaded thong heels in pink
stopped us in our tracks. At the biannual “Backroom Sale” (there’s one
this month), you’ll save mega bucks on in-season items. 6105 Sherry Ln.

At this North Dallas
resale shop, couture and designer labels like Gucci, Versace, and Prada
are racked separately so you don’t have to dig to find them. A side
room is stocked with small gift items, shoes, handbags, and
accessories. We walked away with a leather and grommet Miu Miu handbag
for only $50, and for well below retail we got a Jil Sander suit with
the tags still on. 1413 Preston Forest Square.
Puttin’ on the Ritz
It may be small, but it’s chock-full
of heirloom-quality clothes. If you’re looking for something in the way
of a wedding dress, you’ve hit the jackpot. The back room is stocked
with beautiful antique gowns and accessories, including pillbox hats
and gloves. The owners travel often to Europe on buying sprees. 6621
Snider Plaza. 214-369-4015.
Zola’s Everyday Vintage >>
only one year, this Bishop Arts District boutique is thriving. Check
out the wall of vintage ties by Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and
Thomas Pink. We spotted scarves and brooches and shoes by Chanel and
Manolo Blahnik. But our best finds were a Jean Paul Gaultier
slip dress for $175 and a Halston jacket for $75. 414 N. Bishop Ave. 214-943-6643. www.zolaseverydayvintage.com.
