Party! West Elm opened in Kansas City! I was invited to the opening night and it was nothing short of a party. They had food, drinks, a DJ and photo booth all featuring local vendors. Local merchants were focused and one of my favorites was Ampersand. Their Kansas City tote for West Elm was too hip and in my favorite colors. It was a quick walk through for Jessica and myself as we slowly fought the crowd to see their newest furniture items, always perfect trays and latest kitchenware. I was off to Chicago the next day but was glad I squeezed this in, confirming it is still one of my favorite spots for affordable decorating. So be sure to go to check out the new store.
