But also I can't wait until these become available in stores over here. 
And then I found this gorgeous shop on esty it's called Design's by Pamela it has so many gorgeous types of trims, laces, ribbons and flowers that I so need to go and buy some stuff like this

How gorgeous are these, I of course so love them all.
