Leather Bomber Jacket || RD STYLE || Tulip
Black Shift Dress || Lumiere || Tulip




If you follow along with my Fashion blog in Herlife magazine, then you know that I love supporting local Kansas City businesses. In fact, in the August issue I wrote an article about some of my go-to places to shop. One of those places is Tulip! Locally owned, Tulip carries a carefully curated selection of on-trend, yet accessible items for a large age group. From cheeky novelty t-shirts to formal and feminine dresses, there is surely something for everyone. Right after I wrote my article, something super exciting happened. Tulip re-located to an EVEN BETTER location on the Country Club Plaza! It is now located at 316 Ward Pkwy which is towards the east side of the plaza right next to Seasons 52. Look for the darling black and white striped awning at the end of Ward Parkway and you can’t miss it!

Wanting to check out the new location and refresh some of my Fall wardrobe items, I decided to pop into Tulip! Right away, I fell in love with a short sleeved Olive faux suede shift dress, an off the shoulder denim blouse, a cream sleeveless sweater with open sides (super cute on too), plaid tops with pockets and much, much more. But, there were two pieces that stole my heart that day. Spoiler alert: they were both under $100!

I was in the market for a new LBD that I could wear dressed up or dressed down. When I saw this cute frock, I was immediately drawn to its simplicity and also its versatility. I love the wide white windowpane check that offers just a hint of sophistication. The fabric is high quality polyester so I can wash it myself and I know it won’t wrinkle. YES!!!

What was the other winning piece? This bomb bomber jacket in black vegan leather! The best part is that it is lined with faux shearling. I am cold all the time so this is going to be perfect for fall and layered with a sweater in the winter! Bomber jackets are everywhere right now due to the huge 90’s movement happening in fashion. If you aren’t into 90’s fashion but want to stay on trend, the bomber jacket is a great investment piece that can be worn with jeans or as a fun way to update a dress! That’s what I did!

If you are interested in adding some unique pieces that can’t be found at a chain department store, make sure to go see my girls at Tulip. They love what they do and it shows! And if you go…tell them your friend Abby said Hi!
