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.
