Uptown Boutique

Uptown Boutique is located in Independence, MO. They specialize in creating a balance between classic chic pieces mixed with new fresh items as well. They also carry some really great brands such as: Joe's Jeans, Free People, and Eight Sixty just to name a few. With carrying all of these higher priced brands come higher prices in the merchandise, but don't worry they have sale items as well that can be marked down to about 50% off. Even though the prices are high, I'm excited to go and check it out for myself.

They had a variety of jackets, blazers, tanks, tees and dresses. Most of the items were dressier, but there were some casual pieces thrown into the mix. They also carry many different handbags, jewelry and random accessories here and there. I thought alot of their things were reasonably priced as well. I will definitely be shopping here again.
