Where to Shop in Kansas City | Racked Feature

Shop Kansas City

“For those outside the Midwest, Kansas City has a pretty indistinguishable reputation; in most people’s minds, it’s a flyover state, if it’s anything at all. But the rest of the country would be wise to pay attention, because Kansas City has some serious style.

The City of Fountains is made up of distinct districts that reach from the River Market (located on the Missouri River) to the Country Club Plaza, an outdoor shopping space with architecture modeled after Seville, Spain; there’s also the more industrial West and East Bottoms. Each neighborhood has its own character reflected in the eclectic mix of boutiques, shops, and general stores scattered throughout.

Here, we’ve put together a guide that shows off the best stores “Paris of the Plains” has to offer, from homegrown denim brands to vintage emporiums and design stores. Put it to use next time you decide to stay over, instead of just flying over.”

The Key to a Successful Getaway

I just got back from a 4-day girl’s trip to Key West, Florida. 8 girls, 2 hotel rooms,  and 1 agenda….to celebrate. And that we did!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun we had, from start to finish. It can always be a challenge when traveling with such a large group, not to mention all females, but it was a team effort and we triumphed.

What was so great about this vacation was the balance of it all. We were able to snorkel, sunbathe, sight-see, and jet-ski. Oh. And I forgot to mention Duvall Street….if any of you have ever visited Duvall Street, you know what I am talking about. Wow! One of my favorite parts about this trip was the faithfully gorgeous sunset every evening. I don’t think I have ever seen such a picturesque sunset in my life. And I am so happy I was able to experience it with such wonderful friends. A few moments captured…

Hemingway’s Key West

By this time tomorrow, my girlfriends and I will be on a plane headed to Key West for a few days to soak in some sun and celebrate our successes of the past year. I cannot wait for our Rum & Reggae Cruise tomorrow evening followed by my first time ever snorkeling. Do they still make waterproof disposable cameras? I am going to need to stock up!!

While we are at the “Southernmost Point of the Contiguous 48 States”, I would really love to tour Ernest Hemingway’s Key West home which still houses his cat Snowball’s descendents, over 9,000 books, and an abundance of animal heads. Given to he and his second wife, Pauline, as a wedding gift in 1931, many of Hemingway’s most famous works like Death in the Afternoon, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro were written or worked on here. Let’s hope I can convince a friend or two to stroll over to what is guaranteed to be an inspiring place!
