In a girl's world

Just recently Little Choopie had a photo shoot with my very talented and gorgeous friend, Michelle of Mishkyah Photography.

With a lack of girls in this household (besides - Mumma Choopie, that's me!) its often hard to capture the beauty of our accessories as they are made. As much as my Little Choopie loves to pick up a new creation and say "Lucca wear pretty" it doesn't really cut it when trying to photograph the sweetness of our new clips. So when my lovely friend Michelle started posting some amazing photos of her little girl, I knew I had to ask if she would like to do a mini Little Choopie photo shoot. In the process of starting up her own photography business she more than came to the party. And brought two stunning Little Choopie models along with her.

Michelle has effortlessly captured the detail of each new product on these delightful little girls, and as each new photo lands in my email, I fall more in love with it than the one previous. And whilst I wont bombard you with a gazillion new Little Choopie photos, I will leave you with this beautiful photo of two little girls (wearing Little Choopie of course) and swallowing up all life has to offer.

If you would like to see more of the Little Choopie photo shoot or become a 'liker' of Michelle's new business, Mishkyah Photography you can visit her over here on facebook.

And you can always stayed tuned to the Little Choopie website where many of and new and old accessories have been photographed with these princesses wearing them ;)

The whimsy and wonder of KUP KUP

I can not begin to tell you how excited we are to have KUP KUP Land, the amazing works of Joaquima Casas Bo arrive at Little Choopie. From the moment I first laid eyes on Joaquima's work I knew it was the "something" I needed at Little Choopie.

The details and fun of Joaquima's "art" takes you on a journey to another place. Each piece has been meticulously crafted by hand and the love taken in the packaging.. well that's just another story altogether. Truly if packaging were an Olympic sport the gorgeous accessories packed at KUP KUP would win hands down.

In a world where everyone is searching for the wow factor, I think I found it. Delightful hand crafted felt and beautiful delicate paper brooches won't rain on your parade but really take any outfit or bag to that next level with a true uniqueness.

The attention to detail of Joaquima's pin-back buttons really has me smiling every time I pick one up. They really do transport you to a place that's quirky and fun and whimsical. Each one a one of a kind and as special as the first. Created from felt and beads these are a grown up princess's must.

I have purposefully saved my favourite piece to last (do you do that or is it just crazy old me wanting to savour the good things at the end?). Kup Kup's owl pendants have my heart jumping for joy. Made with oodles of love from fabric, felt and studded with swarovski beads and tied with a simple string, these pendants are just divine. Each one unique to its owner and with a very limited amount available on the website they are sure to sell quickly. You can call them what you like, but I have taken a liking this this one in particular and called him Bernie.

If you love him as much as I do, why not head over to the Little Choopie website here and see what else we have in store from KUP KUP land.

I really hope you are loving the gorgeous new brands we are bringing into Little Choopie. For me its a whole new world of excitement bringing them to you and I can't wait to bring you more.

There's something about Ella and Kate

Lucky for us we have just discovered it in all its gorgeousness. Ella and Kate - accessories for little girls has arrived at Little Choopie and we couldn't be more stoked.

Always a fan of the simple bow in any little girls hair, I was extra pleased when I came across Ella and Kate's most delightful Signature bows and Classic bows.

With a definite quality to match there designer beauty I knew the Little Choopie shelves just had to have a few of these for ourselves. I'm just so thankful that Tamara, the gorgeous designer and owner behind Ella and Kate said yes.

Available now at Little Choopie, both classic bows and signature bows in stunning colour combinations are priced at only $11.95. Such a small price to pay for a delightful pair of high quality alligator grossgrain ribbon bow clips.

If you'd like to see more, you can find them over at the Little Choopie website, here.

The Detail and Design

Fresh to the Little Choopie store is the amazing works of Israeli artist and designer, Yali Paz Gilboa.

Aimed at an older more sophisticated wearer (but most definitely suitable for our little princesses), Yali's hand crafted pieces are simple yet acutely stunning. The detail in each one of a kind piece is simply beyond belief. I truly wish my photo's did them more justice for up close each piece is a little wonder and true work of art.

At Little Choopie, we will be stocking Yali's hand crafted felt double headed bobby pins and vintage embroided felt rings. If an extreme love of these products was converted into money, I would have imported her whole stock line. It is simply divine.

For now I would love to give you a peak of what you can find in store. Firstly Yali's beautiful double headed flower bobbies.

Each stunning bobby is one of a kind and there are no repeat of colour-ways in store, so you can be sure that your piece is truly unique to you. They are available for immediate purchase here.

The next products were so hard to list, because if truth were to be known, I would love to keep each stunning vintage style felt ring for myself. Hand-crafted on felt from tiny pieces of lace and appliqué and embroided with such attention to detail, Yali has created something so stunning but unlike anything I have seen on the market before.

Each piece is again one of a kind to the Little Choopie store with each piece being as delightful as the next. But as numbers are limited, it would be wise to get your purchases in early to avoid disappointment (and maybe from me wanting to keep them all to myself!).

With gorgeous introductions like Yali Paz Giboa to the Little Choopie website its hard not to be excited where the future is headed for us. Certainly many more new introductions to the store to be told in the coming weeks, making Little Choopie the place for both young and old fashionista's to source their accessory needs.
