Are you as excited as we are? SO. MUCH. FUN. stuff!!!!

And, our limited edition Kansas City tote bags and shirts are BACK!!!

So, what do you guys think? We don’t know about you, but we’re looking for an excuse to throw a party just so we can use the platters! And the phone cases? Already done. You’ll be seeing both Carrie & Morgan sporting their favorite designs. Which one do you want?

We won’t hold you up, head over to the SHOP NOW!
