We love a list, and one exclusively curated by one of Fort Worth’s top fashion bloggers is even better. Today, DFW Style Daily digs its heels into Fort Worth – a city deeply rooted in culture, Western heritage, and more than just the cliché of its more noticeable nickname, CowTown.
As we press into more coverage of this unique city, we teamed up with Style of Sam Founder, local fashion blogger, and part-time pharmacist, Samantha Stewart (pictured above) to get a prescribed dosage on top haute shopping stops in Fort Worth. Featured as a go-to source for Neiman Marcus, Tootsies, and Vanity Fair (just to name a few), our feelers tell us that Sam’s picks will be right on the money. Read on as our Fort Worth expert grants you exclusive access to where the trendsetters roam when looking to make a one-of-a-kind style statement.
Lane Knight: Wishing that she could “wake up to this boutique in [her] closet,” Sam dishes that this is the must-visit shopping destination for the style-savvy gal. Located in the bustling West 7th shopping and entertainment district, this carefully curated boutique not only houses beautiful designer clothing and accessories, but also a creative mixture of housewares. From Zimmerman to Lizzie Fortunado to Jonathan Adler, Lane Knight is stocked sky high with all of the must-haves and wants on any shopper’s seasonal list.
ReVint: It’s an immediate blast from the past once all of the well-heeled darlings of Fort Worth step through this vintage boutique’s doors. According to Sam, get ready! “It’s impossible to make a quick stop [here] because the boutique is full of hanger after hanger amazing pieces,” claims the top blogger honoree. Boasting designer labels from Dior, Escada, Louis Vuitton, Celine, and Chanel, it’s no wonder why this local boutique is frequented by those in search of coveted designer finds. Our advice: run, don’t walk to ReVint. From what our sources spill, there’s a hot pink silk Escada jacket with feather trimmed sleeves screaming your name.
Esther Penn: We always encourage our readers to shop and support local, as it’s widely known that DFW houses some of the best designers in the industry. As we digress from the obvious, this local shopper’s haven channels everything from the minimalist at heart, all the way to the bohemian, with walls lined from front to back displaying locally sourced talent. In need of a gold pleather midi skirt, or better yet white leather overalls for an over-the-top style statement? Then Esther Penn is the perfect addition to your already growing must-stop-and-shop list!
Beehive: Ready to get groovy baby? Pony up your platforms and shuffle down to this Fort Worth gem named after the popular 60’s hairdo. With an assortment of accessories and apparel adorned in graphic prints and textures, our go-to Fort Worth guru hints that this Austin-based destination is definitely “fresh and groovy.” While Sam recently admits to having her eye on a Marsala sequined romper in honor of Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, others are scurrying to Beehive to gather up the best in on-trend pieces at wallet friendly prices.
Prim & Proper: Giving an obvious nod to its noticeable name, this Fort Worth gift shop stays true to form as the one-stop shopping spot for everyone on your list. From friends to babies to even pets, Sam touts that Prim & Proper is where she “may have found one too many things for [herself],” like her newly purchased Brevity “Texan” necklace – an exclusive find she grabbed while shopping for others. It happens, we understand. The atmosphere begs shoppers to browse the unique selection of letter press cards or even the newest collection of bespoke art by Helvius Thompson, which Sam swoons is “too good for words.” Enjoy the offerings of professional gift wrap services and head to Prim & Proper to explore more at this treasure trove destination.
