2nd Birthday!!!!!

WOW! I have posted on this blog since the Collegiate photo shoot! That was ages ago!!!

Quick recap to bring you up to speed!! After the Collegiate wear photo shoot I quickly transitioned into Summer Collection mode, sought out some contract seamstresses to help me out AND got busy!! I decided to actually try production runs this time around.. I liked the idea of just being able to go to my "stash" and pull something out and ship it to a customer!!! As with anything new, there were lessons to be learned!!

We also started full swing into our Trunk Show/Home Parties!! I love this aspect of the business. I love being able to go out and meet new people, share stories.. Girl talk.... playing with lots of cute kiddos..

Fast Forward... to N-O-W.. Its almost Halloween- Which I've never been a fan of.. I guess I was a weird kid, I don't know!!
We recently launched our Fall and Christmas Collections!!! Holy Cow-- that was a busy couple of months!!! BUT I was determined to get the holiday goodies out WAYYY before the holiday-- for once!!
make sure you head over to our etsy shop and like our facebook page!!!

Here is a SNEAK of a few of our Christmas Collection Pieces!!!  btw- aren't these the cutest kids EVER!!

This is just a taste of whats in store!!!

Next weekend we are heading to Kingsport, TN to the Christmas Connection Festival along with Monograms by Megan!!! We are super excited! This will be our FIRST Festival!!

Before I go, FNF would like to give a shout out to Pink Door Fabrics!!! They are one of our FAVORITE places to get fabric from!!! If your in the market for GREAT quality fabrics, head over their way!!

Hopefully, I'll post again before Christmas!!;)

Peace, Love and Frills N Fluff ;)

Collegiate Wear Time

So my hope was to be able to blog weekly, well as life would have it, that didnt work out!

But Im here and writing so that's better than totally forgetting, right?

To catch you up on the life and times of Frills N Fluff. We shot our first live photo shoot in Nashville, TN on May 12, 2012 for my summer collection Gypsy Bandana. The day was rainy and yucky, but the kids did great and were such troopers! there were 9 kids all under 6!

This past weekend we did our 2nd live photoshoot, this time here in Knoxville. My friend and aspiring photographer Liza Hutchison graciously offered to shoot this collection for me. Can you imagine??!?! We had 4 little ones that ALL have just recently turned 2, along with a 3, 4 and 7 year old.. I was BEYOND impressed at how well behaved these children were! They've got some good mommies and daddies!!! Liza did an AMAZING job taking the photos for this shoot. I was shocked!!We were able to use her inlaws home on the lake and it was just beautiful!

I had this vision in my head to get them walking, holding hands.. this was about as close to my vision as we could get!!! But it's perfect!!

We had a really fun time!! I cant wait to do it again!!

FNF has started a newsletter, so make sure if you havent already you leave me your email address so that I can sign you up. With all the facebook changes and customers not seeing posts, I'll be sending alot more newsletters with coupons, sneak peeks and lots of other things!!!

Here are a few more photos to leave you with!

These will all be available in my etsy shop at

Week 2... I did it!!!

AHHH, I was about to miss my attempt to blog once a week!! But Im here, and typing away!!!

My FIRST ever Trunk Show event was this past Monday night at my friend Liza's house. She and Cory were the host's and it was a GREAT time. I was overwhelmed with the success of this first show... I had an open house event back in Feb. and there wasnt a very good turn out. I was SO afraid that is how it would be this time around too! I think I came away with around 15 orders!!! SO super excited!!!

Here are a few photos of the Show @ Liza's House!!

My next trunk show is TOMORROW!!! A previous customer, Micki is hosting it in Athens, TN. Im not even sure where Athens is BUT i'll find it! Im super excited for this trunk show! For one, it will be a totally new atmosphere to show off my AWESOME (in my opinion!!) designs!!! Micki has 2 twin boys that I am dieing to meet too!!!

I have been steadily searching for FALL fabrics!! I am trying to start preparing in advance so that I am on top of my game. I have found some GREAT fabrics, gotten LOTS of samples and even ordered enough to make a test design!!! YAY!! I think you're really going to love whats in store for the Fall!!!

Im going to leave you with 2 things.. A sneaker of a modeled set from the Summer Gypsy Collection AND a question..

What would you LOVE to see as far as styles for the Fall!!!
