Au Revoir!

Tomorrow i will be in Paris, so this is a goodbye (for a week)
I´m very excited about it all, specially because i´m going to meet some very special friends,
like Natacha Matic, who is coming to help me with my-non existent-french
Yes! She is that generous as to give me so much of her time,
i hope she doesn´t mind that i´m telling!
And i will be having some other really special visits while i´m there,
but i have to keep some surprises until i come back!

I leave you with Perlita
and, while i´m away, i recommend you that you read

Pretty accurate!

This week i sent the invites to the Prêt-à-Porter Paris show. The D-day is fast aproaching!

Don´t they look cute? The big red card was given by the organizers and i added the black/white tag with the eiffel charm+french flag ribbon. Très charmant, don´t you agree?

Sale is over! wow, it has been pretty intense! You girls love a good sale, don´t you? (me too, btw).

This is a pic of just part of the boxes and envelopes t
hat are ready to be shipped tomorrow. All of them!
I had a lot of fun with this sale, ´twas crazy! :9

Thanks so much to Lucía, Beatriz y Siona for mentioning chicadecanela´s sale on their blogs!

You should know, i really enjoy having the online shop, but this is a time in which i just can´t cope with the retail side of the bussiness if i must attend to the wholesale one. That´s why i have decided to take a break from le boutique: so we´ve hung the "Close for rest" sign. The shop will be back in April with lovely new products and lots of surprises!

And what is keeping me so busy, you may ask? Well... (drum roll, please!)

Yes! chicadecanela will be taking part in the upcoming Prêt-à-Porter fashion show in Paris! O la lá!
This is my first international fashion show and i´m so exhited! Of course, i will tell you all about it in due time :D
We are exhibiting in THE BOX, which is one of the coolest sections, i think, sharing this espace with the likes of Servane Gaxotte, Gaspard Yurkievich or Maloles! (click here for a complete list of exhibitors, including moi).
If you are going to be in Paris between 1-4 February and you would like to come to visit me, send me an email to info[at]chicadecanela[dot]com and i will send you an invite! I´d love to see you all there!

love, love, love.

Well, after some technical problems in my website it´s finally done: THE FIRST EVER CHICADECANELA SALE !

I was really doubting wether to do a sale or not, but then i decided to make it short&sweet. It´s going to last barely a week and it´s not starting timidly with 20% offs, but nearly half price in most of the articles!

There´s little of each article so, if you were ever going to buy that bag, pouch or brooch that you love: now´s the chance to get it for half it´s price, really cheap, ladiez!

After the sale the shop will go on a little vacation: i will tell you why in due time ;)

What are you waiting for? Go shopping !
