Crazy for Cozy!!

Here in Kansas City we seem to be having a bit of Indian Summer this week! But across the country, the weather is getting chilly, leaves are falling, and pumpkin spice is fast becoming the official national drink. ‘Tis the season of cold weather accessories, and we are embracing it with mulled wine in hand!

For this week’s sneak peak Tuesday, we are breaking out the riding boots and cable knits, because baby, it’s cold outside!

Sneak Peak Monday!!

The slightly cooler weather has us creating up a storm! Get ready for tons of chunky knits and animal print from us this pre-holiday season. The fall collection will be officially debuting our fall collection at Hickory Dickory, October 4th, 5th, and 6th so be sure to come down to the West Bottoms!

In the meantime, though, we decided to post a few sneak peak photos to get your blood pumping for the upcoming First Weekend!

 

UGH! OK. Let’s get real here for a second. That first day the temperature is below 60 degrees, don’t you just want to go into full chicken-noodle-soup-pot-roast -meatloaf hibernation mode?! Unfortunately though, we can’t all just take a sabbatical from October to May, so head to work and run your errands in comfortable, cozy style with this decadent, buttery-soft knit cowl. It will take the chill out right out of your bones, but please, don’t blame us if you fall asleep at your desk wearing it 😉

$39 USD- Will be at Hickory Dickory during the October First Weekend, if you are interested but can not attend, please send us a message and we will send it to you!

Falling For Fall

Fall is almost here and we have been designing and creating up a STORM! Dare we say The Holidays are just around the corner?! OK fine, we take it back.

Since the Holidays are practically years away, let’s think Fall for now! We’re creating some amazing layering pieces for fall including cozy cowls, caplets, and extra-long scarves! As ever, we’ve got your favorite clutches and felted bags hot off the knitting needles as well!

We have so many events in the works for fall, but you can always find us at Hickory Dickory in the West Bottoms of Kansas City, every first weekend of the month. By the holidays we will be in several stores around the country and will definitely keep you posted!

We hope you enjoy falling for fall as much as we are!
