My Thoughts: K.slademade

I first heard about K.slademade back in October. As I was flipping through OK Magazine. The K.slademade Pale Pink Tip Pouch & Tassel were featured in OK Magazine's Gift Guide in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 
The cute pink leather pouch and matching tassel instantly caught my eye and I immediately headed over to my computer so I could browse the K.slademade website. Talk about love at first sight, I fell in love with everything and I had such a hard time choosing what I wanted... all I knew is that I needed to buy something from her shop. I initially wanted to purchase a bag/clutch but I couldn't decide between The Brooklyn Foldover & The Heather Crossbody. Since I couldn't seem to make a decision, I decided to keep my first purchase small. 

Before purchasing, I did a little research. I read that all orders are MADE UPON PURCHASE. It can take up to two weeks for Kelsea, the owner of K.slademade, to fulfill your order. 

My first purchase from her shop was The Pale Pink Tassel.
It took a little over a week before I got an email saying that my order was shipped. Kelsea, ships her orders via USPS Priority Mail. I know that Priority Mail can take anywhere from 2-4 days for delivery. I was surprised that my order arrived from Indiana to Hawaii in just TWO DAYS! 
The tassel arrived in a box, tied in a ribbon & adorned with a monogram K sticker. Perfectly wrapped for gift giving. The tassel keychain looks exactly as pictured and would make the perfect bag charm or keychain. I use my K.slademade tassel as a keychain- it makes finding my keys easier & much more fun!

My Second Purchase was The Heather Crossbody in Black.
I decided to get it with the short 18" chain, because I wanted to use it as a shoulder bag, rather than as a crossbody. 
The turnaround time was quick, it took about a week for her to ship my order! I received my order in about 5 days. The Heather Crossbody came wrapped in navy blue tissue paper, secured in a plastic sleeve! 
I am head over heels in love with this bag. I am usually a sucker for large totes, but for a long time now I have been looking for something on the smaller side that will fit only my necessities. Also, an added bonus, I don't have any black purses... this is my very first! I love everything about this bag- the quality, the chain detail, the tassel & the simplicity of it. I love that it forces me to only carry the things I need, rather than carrying my whole life in my bag like I tend to do. 

If you'd like to see what I carry in my Heather Crossbody, leave a comment below and I'll be sure to do a quick post on it! 

Anyways, all in all, I am a huge fan of K.slademade and I highly recommend her shop to all you bag lovers! I love her shop so much that I already have a list of K.slademade goodies that I want to buy next! 

Be sure to check out K.slademade!
I'd love to know, what are your favorites from K.slademade?
