Blogging from Brookside in Kansas City

Brookside Welcomes Lady Bye - New Women's Boutique

"Would Kate Middleton wear it?"  That's part of the criteria owner Abby Flores has when choosing clothes for her new Brookside shop, Lady Bye.    Located in the former Shopgirls space at 6245 Brookside Plaza (near Foos and 5B Candles), Lady Bye opened last week and the buzz is spreading.  When I stopped by, two ladies from my office were browsing in the store!

As Abby explained, Lady Bye offers clothes with a classic, "east coast" feel, inspired by the elegance and beauty of style icons like Princess DIana, Jackie Kennedy and...Kate Middleton.  Inside this cozy shop you'll see jackets, sweaters, dresses, tops, and a few jeans--mostly casual and business attire that feels current, sophisticated yet comfortable and approachable.  A couple of Abby's favorite clothing lines, Mod Ref and All Row are featured, which she feels offers great quality for the price.  Sizes range from petite to 3X, depending on the manufacturer, and she will do personal shopping for time pressed clients.  The medium sales price is $69.

 

 

In addition to the clothes, Lady Bye offers some accessories:  a few purses, shoes, candles, jewelry and perfume. Friendly, personal service is offered to every customer as well!

 

Abby also owns Coco, another clothing shop (temporarily relocated to 407 W Gregory next to Classic Cookie), which has a more casual, 'west coast' feel.  She is thrilled to be back in Brookside -- neighbors are so supportive as well as fellow Brookside business owners. 

 

 

Plan to stop by Lady Bye and check out their classic clothes.   Hours are 11-7pm Mon-Sat and 12-5 on Sunday. The grand opening is this Saturday Feb 10, 2018!
