Accessories from Across the Pond

In your quest for the perfect Christmas gifts for your nearest and dearest, Arlington-based website,The British Chick, is a must. Started by Samantha Holland - a lovely, blonde expat and mom from across the pond - The British Chick offers a quirky selection of imported handbags, jewelry, and other trinkets for home and office that are perfect for any girly-girl on your list.

Our top pick online now is the Pretty City London Make-Up Case with leather trim; though it's labeled a cosmetics accessory, we can easily envision this oversized case as a clutch instead. It's a steal for $19.99.

We also adore the candy-colored headbands with a variety of kitschy charms and the Flutter and Fancies Weekend Bag which is a cotton, cherry print on one side and a precious kitchen scene on the reverse. And for the aspiring chef in your life, pick up the pink Ooh La La Recipe Book with cupcake charm trim.

It's worth mentioning that the Paper Plane line Holland carries is beyond fabulous (see their weekender bag and satchel in the gallery), but it's largely sold out at present. The British Chick expects new shipments of the label prior to Christmas. Also keep your browsers cued for the arrival of a new line launching at The British Chick very soon; it's called Wagtail, and they'll be the exclusive distributor for the bird-themed label.

Want to shop The British Chick merchandise in person? She's got a very busy weekend planned; catch her in Hurst during their annual Craft Show at L.D. Bell High School this Saturday or at the Keller Indianette Christmas Craft Bazaar on Sunday at Keller High School.
