It’s been a weird year to be a Lana Del Rey fan — in addition to just being a year. There was that highly memeable “question for the culture” and the fishnet face mask that, while chic, was filled with literal holes. But my favorite moody chanteuse has finally made a 2020 choice I can fully support: Lana shopped at Dallas vintage treasure Dolly Python.
I mean, I’m pretty sure she did. She was pictured outside of Dolly’s new Bishop Arts outpost with friend and singer-songwriter Nikki Lane, who just played a socially distanced show at Lamberts in Austin. The Cali resident was wearing a Harley Davidson belt buckle and a cowboy hat (a Charlie 1 Horse no less!) — the universal sign of a Dallas tourist. Plus, the @dolly_bishop_arts account dubbed her a “customer of the day,” so surely she bought something. The Instagram evidence checks out!

Lana joins an illustrious list of celebrities who dig Dolly Python. Kacey Musgraves is a big fan, as is Leon Bridges and French couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier. Dallas is full of vintage gems, but Dolly’s well-edited collection of oddities and found treasures spanning everything from Moulin Rouge-approved boudoir lamps to clever tees has made the store, first opened in Old East Dallas by Gretchen Hinkle Bell in 2005, a retail institution.
But still, what is Lana doing in Dallas? Wasn’t she supposed to be releasing Chemtrails Over the Country Club like yesterday? To quote another memeable pop star moment: “Go girl give us nothing!”
