One of my most favorite locally owned Kansas City boutique's on the Plaza has moved locations. Tulip, a hand-curated shop of women's classic and trendy clothing and accessories, is still on the Plaza, but they are now off of Ward Parkway, just east of Season's 52. You can still find them by their adorable black and white stripe awning our front.
Something fun that Tulip does is host shopping events for groups (of friends, family, co-workers, etc) that include wine, snacks, shopping discounts and giveaways. You can also do a social gathering as a way to contribute to your favorite fundraiser! Tulip will make percentage of sales donations to the charity of your choice. I'm always looking for unique friend get togethers, and this is high on my list! Just contact Tulip to plan your event - visit their Facebook page to message them there, or give them a call!
I stopped in a couple of weeks ago to check out their new digs, and new transitional/fall pieces, and walked away wanting the whole store. I honed it in though, and actually took home something I can wear now, and later!
I picked up this season's perfect item to layer with, a gray sweater vest! I love it now over light fabrics, short sleeves and/or more summery looking pieces to help fall-up. Later, I envision layering the piece over a turtleneck top or long sleeve shirt-dress and boots!
I also couldn't leave without grabbing a black-fringe dress from the sale rack, and a long gold necklace with marble-looking pendant. They have so many cute things for now (that you can also wear later), with a constant influx of new goodies coming in. I know I can always find cute clothes and accessories to go with it.
