THE ART OF ELISE FRANCESCA.....PLUS A TANK DRESS GIVEAWAY!!!


Happy Wednesday my dear friends! I'm so EXCITED today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to "THE ART OF ELISE FRANCESCA".

Elise recently found my blog and contacted me about her designs, as they are a PERFECT match for all things Spring and Preppy!  A little information about Elise's designs and business, directly from her Facebook page:

Elise Francesca Fargnoli co-founded FRANCESCA JOY, with Carolyn Roy, an interior designer in Palm Beach. They came together with their love for design, couture, and color.


FJ is a home decor/lifestyle collection based on Elise's designs and paintings. The collection includes tote bags, t-shirts, and chemises- all of which are hand painted and designed by Elise. Tote bags are currently sold in South Florida, while the home decor line (including items for pets) will launch March 2010 in Designer Avenue, Palm Beach.

Along with starting her own company, Elise is currently represented by Agora Gallery, in the heart of the art district of NYC. Exhibitions are expected for this July 2010.

Elise designs some of the most gorgeous bags in delightful designs. The prices range from $120-$160 for the small and large totes, respectively. 

You can view the artist website HERE. If you're interested in viewing more of the designs, become a fan of Elise on Facebook HERE where you can see even more photos!

Elise has branched out into clothing! Her first pieces are the tank dress and t-shirt shown below, which comes in sizes S-XL and are priced at $60 for the tank/dress and $75 for the t-shirt. If you order prior to March 19, you will also receive $10 off! You can contact Elise directly to place your order at : francescaelise@hotmail.com.

As an added bonus, Elise is generously sponsoring a GIVEAWAY for Shopaholic readers!!! You will receive the tank dress (in your size, of course) shown in the very first photo of this post. Elise will ship the tank directly to you! :-)

  3. I'm already a fan on facebook. I love both of them, but if I had to pick, I'd say the tank dress. I'm entering in all the other ways, except twitter, because I don't have one, and don't plan on getting one.

  44. Well this is strange, but it looks like my first entry disappeared! I chose the gorgeous tank/chemise as my fave even though I adore the totes. I live in Palm Beach and would love to visit her new boutique soon. If I can get special permission to take some photos and do a short intervivew, I will do a social media review and send it to you!

  53. two last week I've looked some info about Elisa Francesca, until for a stroke of luck I found your page, where I definitely get the exact information of what I was looking for.

    However, the most incredible is the quantity of buy viagra blogs that I had to evade to find the correct blog.
    Thanks for the info!
