After a white knuckle drive to Kansas City through an ice storm, we made it safely. The trees were unbelievably gorgeous, sparkling with ice. (pics to come after editing)
After my work duties were fulfilled, I made my first trip to The Plaza which is the shopping mecca of KC. I stumbled upon two of the neatest shops I have seen in a while.
My first find, was The Paper Source. I knew I was in heaven when I first saw their logo, “Do something creative everyday.” This was my kind of store! I walked away with a couple of treasures…and a book I have been eyeing for a couple of months. I am inspired already–it was a great buy.
The second store I found gave me heart palpitations. Fabric is one of the things that leaves me sleepless at night. I think forever about the endless possibilites of combinations! I found a store called 1154 LILL that was one of the most creative concepts I have ever seen. She has walls of fabric in the store and about 50 different handbag designs. You choose the handbag design and then you can choose ANY combination of fabric to cover the bag-inside & out. It was a designers dream come true! The fabrics were dreamy and I swear, I could have spent hours there. I was dragged out by my husband after about 45 minutes, but the website is just another dream come true! If you are a gal that likes things to be uniquely yours…and unlike anything that you will see on the street, you have got to check this out! She has everything from makeup bags to clutches to laptop bags and diaperbags. I was so excited about this find!
