Preppy is back in a big way this year, and nothing says classic chic more than Sperry-Topsider. Since 1935, this company has been bringing comfortable, colorful footwear that is associated with those who yacht and play tennis at the club. Now, Sperry brings their high-brow value and style to Northpark Center in Dallas, it’s only Texas boutique. These kicks are no longer just the nautical fare the brand is so closely identified with. Metallics, bright colors, creative embellishments…all these fun additions make for a prepster’s fashion obsession. If you want to wear a piece of American history and also have feet that will thank you, then join the cool kids at Sperry-Topsider.
Northpark Center is a staple for Dallas shopping. The store directory alone has its own bragging rights with representation from top designers such as Betsy Johnson, Versace, Gucci and the list goes on. Northpark Center also dons a collection of fine art and installations throughout the building with acquisitions by Nancy A. Nasher. Northpark’s restaurants and eateries are also better-than-your-average food court. The official food court has a Paciugo, a Which Which and a Snappy Salads, and their restaurants include fancy favorites Luna De Noche, Maggiano’s and McKormick and Schmick’s Seafood. As if all that wasn’t enough, Northpark is the future home to Dallas’ first and only H&M opening later this year. Pardon me while I squeal with excitement.
