SHOPPING TRIP: Mexco, Uptown Dallas

I love exploring Dallas and all the BEAUTIFUL home goods stores that they have! While having brunch in uptown I stopped in Mecox, an interior decorating store full of ALL the things I would want for my home. Its the kind of place that you could go and decorate your whole home or just find a few quirky pieces to make your house unique.

I found out that there are several locations of Mecox stores! I visited the Dallas one but there are other retail locations in Chicago, NYC, South Hampton and East Hampton, LA, Houston, and Palm Beach.

I know it sounds crazy... but after each holiday is a great time to stock up on decorations for the next year! They usually have AMAZING discounts on decorations because they are trying to move in the next season's merchandise. Definitely check this out at Target, Walmart, or any home goods store.
