Eileen Fisher, Fiesta and Gigi!!

Yes!  It’s Friday and it has been a long traumatic week…so I am happy to bring you a little joy! 
I praised Goodwill yesterday for all they do for the community, so please allow me to also praise Eileen Fisher for the same reason.  Eileen Fisher represents more than great clothes, she has designed her company to be one with depth. 
Her vision includes helping to protect the environment, empower women and girls, and preserve traditional crafts and cultures.  She promises to provide women with beautiful clothes, while maintaining a commitment to responsible business practices and choices …including selecting organic, sustainable materials and creating partnerships with socially-conscious vendors.
Her Director of Social Consciousness, Amy Hall, has worked effectively for fifteen years by looking at their own practices through the eyes of farmers, factory workers, NGOS, and CFOS.  She has taken their department from just a dream to a four-woman team with an increasingly ambitious agenda.

Add her impeccable style to a this solid dedication to improve the world, and you can rest assured that you have made an excellent decision when you shop Eileen Fisher.
I think Eileen would love the vibrant multi-culture city I live in, San Antonio.  It is that time of year again…FIESTA!!  This two week celebration is packed with all kinds of EVENTS…two huge parades, three large fashion shows, oyster bakes, carnivals, and who knows how many parties.  As I have done the last two years, I hope to once again bring you a taste of this major event.  

The most popular Fiesta accessories are the many, many medals worn by participants.  Each event and business give out their own specially designed medals.  My first one for Fiesta 2013 comes to me from Goodwill…thanks guys!!  I will wear it on Saturday to my first event!

Finally, last week I told you that Gigi found a new boho boutique, Earth Art,  she loves in Bryan, Texas.  She wore another outfit from her shopping trip today!!  Fabulous as always!!!

Have a wonderful Friday…please check in tomorrow…I am going to introduce to you the most innovative skin care line I have seen to date.  They literally blew me away when they invited me over for an afternoon!!  It’s good to know we can still be surprised when it comes to beauty and fashion….see you tomorrow!!

Thank you to the sweet and fabulous, Ariane, for including me in her weekly LIST OF FABULOUS WOMEN!!  Such an honor!


  1. It's great to hear about a brand truly invested in social good!

  2. I love the way you've introduced me to Fiesta - you really bring it home, Pam. And you've just taught me more about EF's clothing - besides the fact that it's lovely and well-crafted. Thanks, and I'll be looking for your new skin care info : >

  3. Hi Pam-I so agree about Eileen Fisher is a fashion icon with a conscious heart. So smart!
    Looking forward to hearing your skin care innovations-sounds like an amazing line.
    xx, Heather

  4. I'm not trying to be a troll, but I don't believe this company is quite as it presents itself.

    Many of her clothes are viscose (rayon) which uses carbon disulfide in the manufacture of the product, which does not help with a sustainable environment. Many home sewers have moved away from rayon because of the environmental practices and impact.


  5. ooh, Pam, I LOVE that hi-lo dress!!! I must find it asap :) - Have a great weekend!!!
    Reva :)

  6. Sounds like fun Pam...looking forward to reading about your Fiesta Fun ;-)
    Eileen Fisher sounds an amazing and talented lady.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Nice to see Eileen Fisher is joining the environmental lobby and has a conscience. I like her clothes but they tend to be quite pricey over here.

  8. I have GOT to get familiar with Eilleen Fisher. That hi-low orange dress in the first pic made me salivate a little.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
