Of all the wonderful things to do and see in the Metroplex our very favorite is shoe shopping. Shoes never make you look fat, they always hold you up, and they’ll go anywhere with you, no questions asked. One can never have too many shoes.


Finding great shoes in Dallas is not difficult but there are some spots that just seem to have it all together, all the time. V.O.D. is one of those places. This small boutique has all kinds of clothing and accessories but we’re all about the shoes. At least this week.

Fashion forward styles for women who want more in a shoe than comfort. V.O.D. has what you want — styles by up and coming designers, European designers, and established favorites like Isabel Marant, Inga Savits and Sophia Webster. When you’re looking for the shoes that are inspiring what will be featured next Fall during fashion week?

Stanley Korshak

Old Dallas money has a certain look that you can spot immediately if you’ve lived here more than a month. If you are shopping for that Old Dallas money look then Stanley Korshak is a good place to start. Valentino, Fendi, and Louboutin are just a few of the classics available in this customer service oriented shop. Words like lavish, pampering, and exceptional are the best way to describe the shopping experience at this family owned company. The next time you are invited to a charity ball —

You know where your shoes are coming from, right?

Lou Lou

Did you say trendy?

When the BMW is in the shop for repairs and your big client’s payment is late shoe shopping may seem out of the question. After all, done right, a shoe shopping walk-about can cost about the same as a suburban rental home. No worries, Lou Lou has trendy, affordable shoe styles that will compliment your pedicure nicely.

Who needs comfort food when you’ve got a great pair of shoes?

Neiman Marcus Downtown

There are plenty of Neiman Marcus stores to choose from but if you’ve never shopped downtown Neiman’s, the original, then you are in for a treat. There is something about strolling through the opulent structure and knowing that the very cream of Dallas society was sweeping over those marble floors over a hundred years ago.

The shoe department is ready and waiting for you with shoes by almost any designer you could dream of from Louboutin to St. Laurent. When you’ve found the shoes of your dreams have them walk you up to the Zodiac Room for a light lunch before finishing up your shoe shopping adventure. Once you’ve experienced one of their legendary popovers with strawberry butter you’ll be changed forever.

Neiman Marcus is the best spot for nurturing your inner Auntie Mame.
