Alive Magazine Handmade Holiday Party!!

This Thursday, December 5th, is this year's Handmade Holiday Party put on by St. Louis' own ALIVE Magazine! Come on down to Monarch and enjoy an amazing night full of amazing vendors, vodka tastings, photo booth, great D.J.s and much much more!

Here is a little more info on what's in store and get your tickets here! 

Join us as we celebrate our readers, clients, friends and family at Monarch in Maplewood.

This year we have revamped our holiday event to include a cocktail party, shopping and live sounds from local acoustic acts as well as DJ TrashTalk.

Handmade Happy Hour welcomes 25 independent purveyors of handmade, locally sourced and ethically imported goods who will be on site from 7:30-10:00pm. Trust us, holiday shopping is better with a Pinnacle Vodka cocktail in hand

Gentleman's Emporium presents a lounge fit for the refined man, featuring complimentary Bud Select, a bourbon tasting boasting Makers Mark, Jim Beam Black and select fine whiskeys, and a bacon bar that can't be missed. Plus, guests can enjoy local acoustic acts and fine men's vendors.

DJ TrashTalk and a special guest will provide entertainment in the bar area all night long, and a free photo booth will be available for guests.

For more information or to apply as a vendor, please email

New product line launching soon!

Hello all! It's been a long time since my last post. I just wanted y'all to know that I'm still here, working hard on a new product line. I have been busy sketching, designing, and sewing up some new styles and creations and getting them ready to stock up a couple local boutiques. I have been posting some pics of my new creations on FlyChicks facebook page to get feedback and ideas from my fans and customers. 
Here are a few pics of a new cross body bag design coming soon to the Etsy shop!
Stay tuned for more from FlyChicks, coming soon!!

And another bag in the works!

Lookbook Samples:


I have been busy working on some custom orders and getting my behind in gear to pitch FlyChicks to some local boutiques! I can’t lie though….I am SUPER nervous. I just have this fear of the unknown and have always had a difficult time with change. I have been going through some pretty serious personal battles over the past few months, but have realized that I am MORE THAN READY to tackle what there is in store for me! Not only ready, but finally excited of what the future holds for me. I’m not sure that I have actually ever been “excited” for the future, but after a few months of self reflection, I have decided that this IS MY YEAR!

Here are some samples pics  of products that I plan on pitching! Feel free to let me know your thoughts! Any feedback is welcome!
