Well, they both have stores that the other doesn't. They are about the same, but the Galleria is bigger.

Tyson's Corner Mall in Northern Virginia could give both those aformentioned malls a run as well.
Are you kidding me? Please, Dallas doesn't even have a YSL...Houston does. Plus, Houston is also getting a Valentino next year, another Prada, and possibly a Marc Jacobs (though I doubt it). Dallas couldn't even get in on this chance. I'll give them the fact that they have more high end anchor stores, but the highest end boutiques come to Houston. And for a good reason, too.

(And I looked up that mall in Virginia...they don't even have a Ralph Lauren. That's probably like the easiest upscale store to get, but they didn't get one. So back to what I was saying...

That's because Ralph Lauren is in the Tyson's Galleria which is directly arcross the street from Tyson's Corner Center. So imo Tyson's is the most complete mall experience. There's plenty of upscale, Versace, Chanel, Ferragamo, Hugo Boss, Burberry and many others if thats what you like. All the malls mentioned like Tyson's, Galleria Houston, King of P, Northpark and others have upscale but they have plenty of affordable stores too. When I think of upscale I think of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Americana Manhasset, The Shops at Bal Harbour, Rodeo Drive, Highland Park Village in Dallas and a fews others I can't think of right now.

But does their Ralph Lauren offer Purple Label sales? I'm pretty positive they don't. I also checked out the Tyson Galleria website and it still is not as high end as Houston Galleria.

But Galleria Houston has Popeye's Fried Chicken and Tyson's Galleria doesn't.

Houston has clothing lines that Dallas does not have. Dallas has clothing lines than Houston does not have. They both are great shopping areas. I stand by my statement though, Northpark would give the Galleria a run for it's money as far as upscale.

*edit* from looking at the Northpark Mall Stores. They will infact be receiving a Valentino's. I will not be surprised that all the other high end stores you mentioned opens in the new Victory Park.

Oh and I got this from another site
Quote:
Houston Texas exclusives- Bvlgari, Giorgio Armani, David Yurman, YSL, Fendi, Carolina Herrera, Bally, Feragamo

Dallas Texas exclusives- Faconable, Calvin Klein, Escada (2), Calypso, Anne Fontaine, Porthault, Robert Talbot, Custo Barcelona, Via Spiga, Celine, Hugo Boss,
Tod's (soon) Loro Piano
Again, Dallas hold it's own.

Actually NorthPark is getting a Valentino's. It could easily give the Houston Galleria a run for its' money and even win. Don't underestimate.

It's in uptown. What do you think lol. Seriously, I believe the person developing Victory Park said he wanted to get some stores that cater to OUR crowd this year. Everyone will not afford the resturants and the shops they are building now. But I still want to try those steakhouses.
