One of the many things that I love about being a personal wardrobe stylist is the SHOPPING. I love the hunt of finding unique pieces that I know will enhance my clients’ wardrobes. And when I go hunting, I hunt at MULTIPLE places. I mean we are talking: department stores, online, big box stores and my new favorite, locally owned boutiques.

I am not going to lie. I will forever be a Nordy girl. I loved working for a company that that put an emphasis on getting to know your customers. I loved the spectacular merchandise. And, I loved the fact that excellent customer service was an expectation. ALWAYS. Now that my Nordstrom days are behind me, I am still looking for places to shop that will measure up to these high expectations. Luckily I have found a couple of places that fit the bill, and they are all small locally owned KC boutiques! So, with small business Saturday coming up tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to share with you my fave go-to local stores to shop in KC.

From the first time I stopped in to visit this tiny boutique, I fell in love with not only the merchandise but the vibe as well. The owner Meagan is always cheerful and greets you by name. She always takes the time to chat with me and show me all of the new goodies (new stuff comes in every week!). She loves her store and it shows. If you are looking for fun, on trend pieces at a great price point, this place is for you! The top I am wearing above just so happens to be from there too!

Small Biz Saturday Special: Stop in to the store for 15% off your purchase all weekend long. Then, on Saturday every purchase will be entered to win a $100 gift card. What a great reason to go shopping!


Scoobie, is a fashion forward, 70’s inspired brand owned by Sarah Jabbour. Besides being one of the sweetest girls ever, she is also really good at what she does.

You can find the adorable and hip styling’s of this brand at Trendz, the KC Garment District or online!

Located on the KC’s coveted Country Club Plaza (right next to the Better Chedder…yum), Tulip offers a sophisticated more mature selection of clothing and accessories.
