California’s Johnny Was Opens in NorthPark Center


Straight out of California, luxury boho-chic fashion brand Johnny Was is set to open June 15 at NorthPark Center.

If you aren’t already familiar, Johnny Was is an LA-based lifestyle brand whose collections embody the Southern California aesthetic. Founded in 1987, the brand has a bohemian spirit and a true sense of authenticity and is a favorite with celebrities like Heidi Klum, Hillary Duff, Emily Ratajkowski, Selma Blair, and Mila Kunis who love the brand’s exquisite embroidery and effortless silhouettes.

OUT AND ABOUT: Flex Friday Happy Hours


Going home, snuggling into a pair of pajamas, and binge-watching something on Netflix is how I spend most Friday nights. What can I say, I'm getting old.

But with the sun setting a little later and my favorite summer tradition – flex Friday – in full effect, hanging out a little later to enjoy some of Dallas' best happy hours has proven to be a lot more fun than hanging out with Kimmy Schmidt and Titus Andromedon (sorry guys).

New Zealand Rodd & Gunn Meets NorthPark


Rodd & Gunn, a modern lifestyle-driven menswear brand, is set to open its first Texas location at NorthPark Center.

“We’ve had our eye on Dallas for quite some time as it’s a very progressive and exciting city that we think our brand will resonate with,” said Mike Beagley, CEO of Rodd & Gunn. “We love that Texans are big on style but also know how to have some fun while looking good.”

The Knox Street district already has a reputation as one of Texas’ and Dallas’ most walkable neighborhoods.

Weir’s Furniture and real estate firm Four Rivers Capital have a $150 million-plus plan that could make it more parkable, too.
