Dallas/Fort Worth Shopping Musts

If you haven’t spent a lot of time in the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area then you probably don’t know or haven’t even heard of the two shopping musts I am going to tell you about. There are two jewelry/accessory stores that have multiple locations to satisfy your accessory fix. I am an accessory whore that loves scarves, rings, necklaces, big earrings and purses/bags that are all CHEAP and I find just that at Sam Moon and Charming Charlie. Sam Moon - Yes ladies, there is a website, but the website really doesn’t do the store justice. There is row after row of purses and small suitcases and two full walls of necklaces, earrings, etc. Not to mention, scarves, belts, hair accessories, wallets, cell phone cases, wigs (if your into that sort of thing) and hats of all kinds. Pack your patience because I have never been in the store without being there with 100+ of my closest friends and plan ahead and bring cash if you want to limit your spending because I’ve never left there without spending more than $100. Prices vary, but you can find great earrings for $2-3 and bling purses for $25-50, but some extend into the $100’s as well. Charming Charlie's - I would consider Charming Charlie’s a sophisticated aunt of Sam Moon, it is way more organized and elegant when you walk in with some of the same great deals but including some apparel thrown in the mix. This is a great place to go to find something specific because they have organized their store by color pallet so you can find what you are looking for quickly. It would be a great place to find costume jewelry or jewelry for a special occasion that you want to look nice but don’t want to spend a lot of money. I realize there is so much more to DFW and many other things to entertain yourself with, but these are two must-have stops for a girl’s weekend.


  1. I truly enjoy a store that is organized to a fault. I have plenty of clothes that need some kind of accessory, jacket, or shoes that match the theme of the outfit that I am trying to complete.
    I get tired of stores that sell all sorts of separates that have not continuity to their pattern, style, or even color!!!! I have purchased an impossible wonderful color in a skirt, for instance, and there is no coordinating any thing available and I end up with a ho-hum white jacket that is okay, but, not interesting. If I could find a coordinating jacket in a floral that had the colors that I purchased already in a stripe for instance, in that earlier mentioned skirt, it could become a fashion statement.
