Dress for Less

Looking like a million bucks doesn’t have to cost a lot. Kansas City has an array of resale and consignment shops that are more like upscale, chic boutiques than bland, stockroom thrift stores.

You can find fantastic deals on a variety of stylish, quality designer brands. Her Majesty’s Closet carries high-end labels like Armani, Chanel and St. John. Fashionista Exchange and Lulu’s Boutique offer trendy brands such as BCBG, Free People and those you might find at Anthropologie.

You can look fashionably fabulous at the fraction of the price and express your personal style, from sassy and in vogue to groovy and mod.

Dress is the important factor comes in mind when heading towards any destination. And when it comes to a party dress, it ranges from the simple to the dramatic, from the modest to the stylish. Kim Kardashian Bio

I adore this line of the clothing items. I love the idea of choosing your own style, because you look better on what it fits you better. I've seen similar items on the festivals of Jaipur, where the women wear colorful clothes, with a lot of flower imprint.
