Today is a VERY exciting day for us here at Kdottie Designs! We are unveiling PART 1 of our collection from Europe. My mom and I went through quite a few markets to find the perfect knick-knacks to bring back home to share with you.
While people watching in France, (because let us be honest...that's just what you do in french cafes... judge and watch.. :) we noticed that purse/bag charms were really hot. Then we started to notice that both high end and high street stores were carrying various types of bag charms. Kdotties is bringing Bag Charms to the USA! We will be adding to our collection in the upcoming weeks, however we have a few to share with you today! Keep in mind, we are very limited in the number of items we could bring back in our suitcases. Therefore, there are not many in stock- so if you like one make sure and purchase before someone else decides to put it in their shopping cart!
These bag charms are Made in Italy out of genuine leather! SOOO ADORABLE!
You can also use our bag charms as key chains too!
We also purchased a couple of bracelets too!
These bracelets are also Made in Italy out of genuine leather!
We are also introducing our Criss Cross Headband collection. For those of your who want a little more coverage with your headbands, these Criss Cross Headbands are fantastic for you! Wear it everyday or with a special outfit!
We also have cute, purse-sized travel journals for your thoughts, ideas or drawings.
Take a peak inside...
There are more items listed on our Online Store! Go check it out!
As I write this post, I'm sad to say that our European trip has come to a close :( We are back in Chicago (more on that in a later post coming soon!). Sorry for the delay- but Jet Lag is a bitch and a half.
I hope you enjoy our tour through Rome (open bus tour #3 of the trip!), and our tour through the Vatican. Forgive the incorrect day # on the video... blame it on the jet lag. Enjoy!
Our Trip Home, A Look Back & an exciting EUROPEAN GIVEAWAY!
We arrived to Pienza, Italy to discover a charming little town! If you have seen the movie Under the Tuscan Sun, imagine that village and you pretty much get the feeling of Pienza.
Laundry drying outside their windows, neighbors greeting neighbors, and a well loved two hour lunch break for the whole town. This is the life!!! :)
We met an AMAZING leather craftsman (I apologize for not knowing his name, but we'll call him Lorenzo) in Pienza. He handcrafted both Patrick and my dad leather belts. He also gave us a music history lesson while he measured, cut and finished the belts. I miss him already!
After you have enjoyed our video below, go ahead and pour yourself a glass of wine, make some pasta and watch Under The Tuscan Sun. Enjoy :)
For our last day in France, we took a beautiful coastal cruise around Nice & Villefranche. I officially would like to move to Villefranche and have a custom pool made in the sea (yes they have those... it's amazing). Elton John, Sean Connary, and lots of royalty all have places around this area. I think Elton and I would be great neighbors, don't you think?
Enjoy this relaxing, scenic journey around the Cote D'Azur.
*I'm letting this video upload while we sleep with some really slow-speed internet, so if it doesn't upload tonight I will try in the morning.
Day 11 consisted of a trip to Aix-En-Provence for a little brocante flea market journey! We found some pretty cute new Kdottie items for you! We will be posting some photos of our finds in the next few days! They will be on SALE towards the end of October! Just in time of the holidays! :)
(If you live in the STL area, they will also be onsale at our Kdottie Holiday Boutique, at the studio, in November!!)
I have also included a mini-documentary entitled "The Dogs of France" for all of you who love puppies! EVERYONE has a dog in France. They bring their dogs EVERYWHERE! It's AWESOME! We saw so many more, but I felt like a creeper always filming random people & their dogs...
Enjoy! Tomorrow's video will be a coastal cruise around the Cote d'Azure!
