Girl Two Doors Down:

CELEBRITY-APPROVED, DESIGNER FLIP FLOPS FOR BEACH WEDDINGS AND EVERYDAY GLAMOUR

What do Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, and Jessica Alba have in common? They’re just a few celebrity fans who wear Girl Two Doors Down sparkly flip flops.

Oh and myself! Obsessed with the Leopard print shoes.

Featuring witty slogans like:

“I believe in a total body workout. Currently my finger benches 3 carats.”
“The only thing better than one, is two cabana boys.”
“How do you like it? Straight up, or extra dirty?” (their Martini shoe!)
“The best thing about being a bride is it’s all about me!”

Add oomph to any outfit, dance your wedding night away in comfort and laugh out loud from their sassy shoe sayings.

You deserve the best designer flip flops – this is accessible glamour that won’t break the bank!

Find a sexy shoe you love whether it’s wedding, flat or platform flip flops.

These luxurious hand poured candles will remind you every day, that life is indeed, beautiful.

Currently we are coveting the Joyeux Noel Candle!

For the Influencer & Fashionista!

 

Tina Frantz Designs
@tinafrantzdesigns


Enter Promo code HOLIDAZE for 30% off, good thru end of the month

At the core of their exceptionally handcrafted designs lies fabric that has outlasted its shelf life in the interior design industry.

Founder Tina Frantz, former decorator, worked in design showrooms in Manhattan and Southern California, and became aware of the hundreds of beautiful upholstery hanging swatches being tossed aside once they were retired from the mill. With an innate love of fabrics and a healthy eco-consciousness, she began to save and collect them, knowing something amazing could be done with them. Eventually discovering that they were the perfect size for a fabulous clutch, she began to create clutch after clutch.

We love that Tina is reducing the landfill and aiming to be the top choice in eco-conscious, luxury fashion accessories with affordable pricing.
