In case you haven't seen them on our website, we have these gorgeous all leather handbags available for sale. They are made to order so you can customize certain elements. All photography by Corey Szopinski.
my new mailbox is so small and the mailperson insists on cramming it full so checking the box lately is mostly annoying.....but today I remembered that LUCKY had called in a "Carina" clutch that might have been shot for the January issue and lo and behold, there it was! The girls at LUCKY have treated us so well, we really appreciate them and all they've done for F&M. Check out this gorgeous shot! You can order this bag online in many colors, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Every shoot has challenges and this one was no exception. We shot in a gorgeous Fort Greene brownstone (thanx Rachel & David) and had 12 changes and 3 sets of stairs and tons of clothing and equipment. Major thanx goes to Corey, our fantastic photographer (among other things) and Heather Palmeri, one of our very own textile designers who worked tirelessly last Saturday. The results are stunning...and I found one more way to make use of the vintage crinolines I love so much.
I have a really good excuse for my lack of blogs posts...well, I suppose my birthday is not a good excuse, but I was jumping all around for 2 weeks speaking at colleges about Freddy&Ma and how I made my "mark", sponsored by Cosmopolitan magazine and Mark cosmetics. Both of these companies are amazing because they really want to promote women and individuality and they thought that I would be "inspiring" to young girls...needless to say, I was EXTREMELY flattered and a bit nervous but thanx to the fabulous crews from Mark/Cosmo, I got thru it and had a lot of fun....went to University of South Carolina (mom drove down to cheer me on), Johns Hopkins and University of Ohio (got to see my bff cate!). Met some great people and gained a new respect for people that travel several times a week for work, it's exhausting!!
We have decided to combine our two best sellers, the Hazel purse and our Gift Card Kit to create a special promotion for the holidays this year. From today through December 20th, we will be offering a Gift Card Kit to create a Hazel purse for $100.00. That is over 25% off the standard price and is the perfect gift for anyone on your Christmas shopping list. Our gift kits contain swatches of the fabrics and leathers used in our bags and are much nicer than a plain old gift certificate. Plus, the recipient gets to go to our website and design exactly what they want their bag to look like! Click here to purchase a custom gift card kit!
