If you ever meet me, you can pretty much assume that the accessories I'll be wearing have come from frances, the adorable boutique on Central and Camelback. It's kind of embarrassing, really. But every time I go there, I find something I just "have to have". And before I know it, I've thrown down some serious cash.
But what's really impressive about frances is that I have never, not once, not ever felt even a slight sting of buyer's remorse.
Frances is that good.
Needless to say, I trust frances to bring about great taste to this town. And now we can join in the creative making process.
Frances is hosting a series of classes on November Fridays. Here's the line-up:
Friday, November 6th, 6-8 p.m.
Finger Knitting with Lynne Bonnell
Friday, November 13, 6-8 p.m.
Vintage Postcard Pockets & Tape Transfers with Josie Cirincione
Friday, November 20th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Beginning Hand Embroidery with Heather Hales
And, of course, you get 20% off of merchandise on class nights. Don't even try to resist the urge to buy something...you will lose, trust me.
