Here's what she had to say:
Thought the folks at Farylrobin would appreciate my cat, Niko, and
her love of your shoes! She rolls all over them and loves the straps.
The funny thing is that they are the only pair to which she pays any
attention. I can't believe how appropriate that they are farylrobins.
Thanks for making shoes that all species love!
Here are some photos of Niko with the shoes. All I can say is CUUUTTTEEE!
Thanks Parrish for the photos.

Then this past friday, we celebrated my 24th B-day. I want to wish Kelly, a Happy Birthday because we share the same birthday, Aug. 25th. If she had only stayed one more week, we could of had a really big celebration. Everyone at the office surprised me with cupcakes and a gift certificate to Mood Fabrics. I love to sew and I love looking at fabric, so I was so excited...which I think is obvious from the smile on my face. Thanks guys! The card I loved. It said "Holy Cow its your birthday!" Jackie found the perfect card for the Wisconsin girl in me. I had a wonderful birthday. From what I hear 24 is a good age to be.

An already exciting year at Farylrobin just got a little better!

From cross-country plane rides to late-nights at the office, this is truly the culmination of five years worth of hard work by our entire team. We also have to thank our amazing customers; you buy the shoes we work so hard to make sure you love. We would never have received this honor if it wasn’t for you!

Here is a random group of photos from Brighte:
Kokin: A wonderful neighbor and milliner extraordinaire!
Taryn closing up our booth at the end of the day, she is clipping a sheet to the outside of the booth so strangers and design thieves can not get in…unless they really wanted to.
Me and Woody: Woody went to ski High school with Nick, not only is he an old friend but he now works for Seychelles shoes. Lucky them!
OK, I am lusting over this Kokin top hat. I love, love, love it!

I look like hell because I have been up since 5 am! I have the option of snacking on animal crackers, Dorito’s munchee mix, biscotti, chocolate chip cookies, and of course peanuts. I love Jet blue! Anyway, I flew to Oakland on the 9:30 out of JFK landed 2:00 California time, went to downtown San Fran to meet with Kimberly and Kristi at Nordstrom and am now in a middle seat (boo) on the 6 o’clock flight to LA. Taryn is going to pick me up and tomorrow we are going to The Brighte trade show. So… the high of the day was logistically managing to get things done and the low of the day…every time I bend over to pick up a bag, my dress strap rips a little. I have no idea why. It’s not even tight. On the contrary it is a little loose. I’m bummed.
Peace out, Faryl

On another note, I thought I better get these photos posted from our semiannual sales dinner from July 23rd. We had a blast at Freeman's Alley in the Lower Eastside. The food was amazing...especially the dessert!
Almost all of the Farylrobin gang
Devin, Jackie, and Taryn
Fabia (our beautiful shoe model for WSA) and Jarrid (our distributor in Canada)
Kelly (our summer intern) and Faryl
Everyone's busy talking...but wait I think Donna may be addicted to her Blackberry and Jarrid's on his cell....see we are always working even when we're having fun!
Jim, I caught in mid-sentence and Lisa
If you enjoyed these photos, make sure to come back. Our sales team is getting back on Friday from their trip to WSA in Las Vegas. We will definitely have some pics to share and possibly a story or two.
