Necklace Questions.

 Yesterday a reader who'd had a preventative mastectomy and subsequent boob job left a comment asking for advice on how to wear her beads with her new figure. Good question. I contacted our resident necklace expert Lotus who actioned an immediate and entire blog post in answer to this important issue. 
 Someone asked if Red Phoenix Emporium ship overseas- they do. People in America and Europe and China are walking about the traps with these gorgeous necklaces draped around their necks.

Happy Tuesday.

    1. we don't muck around- a few phone calls, a few texts and hey presto we had a solution!

      Imagine if you gave us a municipality to run.

      We really could accomplish things.

    2. Ahhh a mythical municipality - Faux Red Phoenix - where everything is overflowing with necklaces, butter, champers and all the other good things.

    3. Haha so funny, I reckon give us some high speed Internet access, couple of iPhones and some top shelf accessories and we could probably achieve world peace. FF can take the morning shift and I will do the night shift (I rarely go to bed before midnight). L xx

    1. couldn't sleep awake at 4 here, sun was already streaming in

      wish we had daylight savings.

      I am very sensitive wit respect to mastectomy/fake boobs because my mum's been down this road with breast cancer.

  6. FF,
    I'm over here in the USA, and I ordered one of those Faux Fuchsia necklaces from RPE when I saw it on your blog. I wear it with EVERYTHING and get tons of complements when I do.

      Surgery is challenging- the last thing you need after it is to be in a position where you can't accessorise and just get your life back to normal x

  17. That's all so lovely, I just send to RPE post to my aunt, who recently got her new boobs a few years after her mastectomy. She's very glam so I know she'll appreciate it!

    Loving all the recent posts!

  18. These are important fashion tips. I don't go in much for short necklaces and it's always handy to take the temperature of public opinion. Not that I would take advice slavishly, it's just good to know what people are thinking. Especially an expert.

  22. Its that dark, wet and windy here I have come back to bed and on the laptop tucked in with breakfast tv - feel very lazy! It's 08.15 and still darkish here :-(

    Beautiful post from you and RPE - it was so brilliantly written it made me chuckle. Loving the new tassle necklaces too.

  23. Fantastic post combination FF and Lotus! I find long styles most flattering on my largish boobs but after reading this think I need a bit more weight in my necklaces to help them sit better. Thanks!

  24. Ah you just can't beat a lovely bright necklace! I saw the latest instyle magazine with RPE looking stunning! Elective mastectomy is a big decision . Very brave. I do know someone that has done that and there ate no regrets . She has 4 children to leave behind if she got breast cancer
    Congrats ff on a brilliantly happy and bright blog!

  25. Dear FF, this is a completely gratuitous comment and pls don't use if you think it inappropriate. But on Sunday I am swimming 10km to raise money for motor neurone disease. I will be the oldest woman swimming the individual marathon, which makes me think that maybe I haven't thought this one through. I am not sure of the oldest female swimmer in the teams but I could even be that too. Anyway, if any of your caring readers would like to donate to the cause, which is completely run by volunteers, they can go here: http://www.everydayhero.com.au/paddy_hintz
    Luv ya!

  26. Hats off to the twins with their suggestions on necklace-wearing!

    You are desperate for some darkness, and we here in Scotland are desperate for some light. Some sun. Some beautiful sun!!!! *sigh* I shall just have to settle for pix of your beautiful garden. I can send you pix of this wet, dark and rainy part of the world :-D

  28. I found your blog a few months ago (via the equally fab Tabs at B&P!) and love its cheeriness. In a world of gloom and recession it is a beacon of light! Although living in Belgium I have a sister in Sydney who I would love to win the oven clean - she is a very busy bunny what with working full time in child-protection and having two wee ones herself and it would make her day!
    Here's to the next three years!

  29. My mom's had a mastectomy - they really suck. This post is awesome and practical. The worse things get, the more you need Glamour and Dignity. Wish there were a better range of lovely post op bathing suits out there... Kathleen

  36. I wore my Little Windows necklace today, I always get comps when I do. I must say, that ordering from RPE is a treat, that Lotus one is the loveliest to deal with over the web.
