Giving Thanks + A HUGE CLEARANCE SALE

November 24, 2014

Flapper Girl Lady Ties

It’s been a wild, wonderful ride these past few years, working towards what Flapper Girl has become. Growth and adventure always leads to more growth and adventure. I’ve got a head full of dreams and plans for creative endeavors for 2015, and part of gearing up for a new, exciting year (and path) is closing up the Flapper Girl shop—for good.

I’d like to thank all of you for your ♥ and support during this amazing journey. It means so much to me that you all believed in what I was creating and putting out there in the world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

If you’d like to get any Flapper Girl neckwear at a deep discount, please check out the huge clearance sale happening over at the Flapper Girl shop, and please spread the word to anyone who might be interested in grabbing a Lady Tie or two for themselves or someone special in their lives.

Everything must go by end of 2014! I’m also open to trade :)

Well, I did it! This weekend I had my hair cut into a bob… and I am absolutely in love with my new hairdo. It’s a nice change.

After I left the salon, I picked out some new vintage eyeglass frames to match my new ‘do. I will show you guys when they come back in a few weeks with my prescription in them.
