Pretty Please

frances elizabeth originals!

You’re teaching them not to name-drop or talk behind a bud’s back. So getting busted for leering at little Lucy’s label was not the model behavior you’ve been preaching.

Such an unfortunate slipup can be explained only by the captivating cuteness of Frances Elizabeth Originals.

Local designer Ashley Williams first learned to smock and sew to outfit her two daughters. From swingy frocks in cheery patterns to playtime separates for boys and girls, Williams’s traditional silhouettes are as refined as your polite progeny. If you favor couture over off-the-rack, Williams will custom cut your order and ship direct.

Just remember to say thank you.

Available at Pink Crocodile, 5330 Brookstone Drive, suite 230, Acworth (770-424-1702). For more information, go to franceselizabethoriginals.com.
