Work in Progress Tuesday

Although you can’t tell by walking outside, spring IS coming!! We promise!

We’re working on a few projects right now that will fit right in with your early spring wardrobe.

First up, we’re feeling a little feisty with this animal print purse in progress. Will it stay a clutch? Leather straps perhaps? Jeweled brooch? Email us and let us know what you think, or post your suggestions on Facebook at armcandykc@gmail.com or www.facebook.com/armcandykc !

Now for a little vintage fabric lovin’! If you are a vintage lover like us, you know that finding a gem like this is a pearl beyond price. Great color variation, texture, and look at that hem!! This fabric was found at a little store just outside of Kansas City, and our minds are racing with ideas of accessories to make! We’ll post the finish product ASAP!

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!

First up, just because the air is crisp doesn’t mean you have to put away your cross body bags! These bags can and should be used all year! Amp up the glam with this Russian inspired vegan fur and denim number! $24 USD

In keeping with the glam theme, check out this sequin caramel and cream cowl! Throw this on with simple black, denim or navy and watch your outfit come to life!

Last but certainly not least, a worsted wool single-wrap infinity! And wouldn’t you guess, it’s pumpkin colored! Complete with two vegan leather buttons, this cozy piece can turn any look into a quintessentially fall ensemble.

All of these featured items will be available this weekend at Hickory Dickory in the West Bottoms in Kansas City, Missouri! See you there!

As ever, if you cannot live without these pieces one second longer, feel free to shoot us an email at armcandykc@gmail.com and we will get these items shipped to you ASAP!

October at Hickory Dickory

It is so hard to believe that just a few months ago we were all festival wristlets and family bar-b-que cross body’s. Now, the leaves are changing, our windows are open, and everything we eat begins with the word “Pumpkin.”

At Hickory Dickory this weekend we’re embracing Fall and stocking our shelves with cozy cowls, chunky knits, and felted handbags! Bring your thermos of pumpkin spice latte, fill up on pumpkin bread, and head on down here this weekend for some amazing antiques, inspiration, and of course, a little Arm Candy!

What a Find!

There is nothing better than taking a stroll through a thrift store and finding a GEM!

This Sunday I realized I was running low on feed sack bags….TERRIFYING! So I went to a few local thrift shops in the area and at my last stop, guess what I found!

Had to post….Any suggestions on what this feed sack should become?!
