If you're needing the addition of a little life to your ensemble, we have one word for you: tote. Lucky for you, our latest line of carry-alls is anything but boring and the definition of fabulous. It's just what you need to liven up your life in honor of the new spring season.

We all love pretty things almost as much as we love the expression of individuality. Isn't that what art, fashion and design is about after all? When pretty meets personalized, it's the winning combination for a piece that is sure to withstand the test of time in the style department. The latest addition to our home collection is anything but ordinary, oh-so pretty and the definition of individualized design. 

petite initial plates

Petite initial plates are a wonderful way to serve snacks, sides or desserts, and the fun and fashion doesn't stop there. They are the perfect shade of stark white, bringing classic chic style to your dinnerware collection, and enough polish and style to bring off the table and onto shelves and walls as the ultimate decorative accent. As if the look and simplistic style weren't enough, the dainty detail around the edge of each plate brings just the right amount of pretty to your kitchen and tabletop routine. 

These plates are not only fabulous, but they're dishwasher and microwave safe, keeping them more than ready to act as serving piece in an instant. As if the style and versatility weren't enough, each plate comes in a set of three, featuring the variety of two square plates and one round plate in each prim and proper box. With one initial per set, how could you not stake your claim to these beauties? 

Go ahead and clear out some cabinet or shelf space, sister. These pretty plates are ready for their big debut, and ready to make you, their namesake, look the part of super chic hostess!
