Zola’s Everyday Vintage, Dallas
Factor: Co-owner Annette Norman routinely travels to old oil boomtowns
in Mississippi, Oklahoma and East Texas for pricey second-hand fashion. “These
hubs still have a lot of old money, which makes for interesting clothing
acquisitions,” says Norman, who runs the shop with her cousin Diedra Sutton.
What to Grab: John Galanos, Mary McFadden and Diane Von Furstenberg—plus a
dizzying array of Braniff Airlines Pucci fabric and local emerging designers
like cowboy bootmaker Felipe Ramirez.
Holy Grail: A 1972 Judith Leiber Ayers reptile day bag with matching comb and mirror set
