we heart kansas city: kate spade store grand opening

Ampersand Design Studio

(pssst....those our our feet!!)
This past weekend Carrie and I attended the grand opening of our very own Kate Spade store right here in Kansas City on the Country Club Plaza!! As many of you know, Kate is actually from KC, so, needless to say, this has been a long awaited opening! Our dear friend Megan Biram of Mimi + Meg co-hosted this little shin-dig and really helped make it a truly Kansas City event! The insanely gorgeous photos above were taken by another dear friend, Eric, of the awesome duo Lemon Lime Photography! Seriously, these guys are insanely talented! Yet another bestie, Tobe Reed (of Because it's Awesome), and Melanie Bridges, both lettering designers from Hallmark Cards, were on hand to customize Kate Spade totes with a hand-lettered rendition of your name (wishing we had photos of those-but we will share when we find some)! And, last but definitely not least--those beautifully bright French macarons in the photo above? Those are from my very own mom, Barbara Shaw! If you want some of your very own macarons and you live in KC,  you contact her at bonmacaronkc@gmail.com. (her website is not quite up yet)
Now, of course, we couldn't help but do a little bit of shopping while we were there...so here is a special little playing favorites! Lots of the things we really loved were only in store and not online yet, so we couldn't get images to share, so definitely go to the store to find even more goodies (321 Nichols Road, Kansas City, MO)!
And, of course, really the best part is getting to hang out with friends-old and new! Here we are hanging out with two ridiculously stylish KC girls: Jessie Artigue of Style & Pepper and Melanie Knopke of The Shopping Scout (thanks to Melanie for this photo)! Carrie and I both forgot our cameras that night (I know, shame on us), but we will share more pics as we can get our hands on them!)
