Print Shop for Impressed App!


This is big you guys...

So big, I'm double posting.
 I'm excited to announce that a set of 12 of my Instagram prints (above) are being sold in a set for $24, exclusively through Impressed App. I've always wanted to do something like this, so when the opportunity presented itself, how could I not! These 12 prints are some of my favorites and I could not be happier to share them with you. The set of prints come with some black and white striped washi tape so you can hang up your prints on a wall! Please share your prints (hoping you will get a set ;)) on social media so I can see them. Please tag me, @stripesandpeonies! 


You can shop my prints here: http://shop.impressedapp.com/products/stripesandpeonies

Gift Guide: my picks


Today I thought it would be nice to switch things up and let you guys now a few of the things on my Christmas list this year. I've been eyeing this Comme de Garcons sweater for awhile and it's the perfect basic that has a little twist. I also love this pasty cookbook from Anthropologie, which would be the perfect thing to help inspire me to actually start cooking in 2015. What's on your Christmas list this year?

P.S. stay tuned for tomorrow's post aka part II of #dwcxmas!

{a chat with}: Patricia Maristch

Today's interview is with the founder of Piqued PR, Patricia. I love having people in different careers featured on this series, so here is a PR maven who established the company in 2013 after graduating from Immaculata University with a degree in fashion merchandizing and French minor. If you have ever been curious about the PR world, this is the post for you. Enjoy!


*******

The three words that best describe your style are…

 colorful, preppy, girly


I loved the name Piqued PR, how did you come up with it?
As a publicist my job is to pique the interest of press and consumers... it seemed like the perfect name. Plus, I love words that start with the letter "P".


What would your advice be for anyone interested in entering the PR business?
 My number one advice is to get out there; network, gain as much experience as possible and use social media to your advantage. 


What's been the hardest part about running your own business?
I think balance is always a challenge with business, finding enough time to do everything, be successful and enjoy life.


What does your daily work schedule?
Everyday is different for me but typically I start with looking at social media and reading blogs to stay up to date. Then get to emails and delegating jobs. Everyday I'm pitching press, writing press releases, planning social media and coordinating schedules. Most days I also have events or meetings to attend.


What exactly does a PR company do for their clients?
Piqued pr's job is to pique the interest of press and consumers. We find unique ways to attract eyes for our clients and get editors and writers to feature them in magazines, websites, news shows, radio, etc. We also handle social media management, event planning, branding and styling.


On a lazy sunday I...
 Watch reruns of the Real Housewives, do some online shopping and plan for the week ahead


What's the best business advice you've ever gotten?
"you get more bees with honey than vinegar" -my mom 


What are a few things on your Christmas list this year?

#dwcxmas: holiday dressing






Welcome to #dwcxmas. My blogger pals & I have teamed up to bring you guys 5 different holiday party looks. Please scroll down to see each of their links to see their look! 

First of all, let me tell you that this is the only red item in my closet. I'm not really a red gal. I saw this BB Dakota number for 40% off (original price $85) at the Shopbop sale and I immediately clicked purchase. After hanging in my closet for a few months, I thought it was time to bring this baby out for some holiday cheer. Also, you might ask "why the coffee?'. It's finals week. #hustle

Check out these lovely ladies below to see their outfit:

Sloane | Sailing the Sea of Style

Caroline | Citrus & Style

Sammy | Preptista

Frannie | The Blonde Prep

Come back Thursday (12/11) for part 2 of #dwcxmas, you won't want to miss it!

Gift guide: stocking stuffers


Now that holiday season is in full force, you're probably starting to scramble for gifts or you're the person that has already bought and wrapped the gifts. Most of us probably fall into the first category, so I've put together my edit for the best stocking stuffers and little gifts. These are also a good idea for gifts for friends or family. This Henri Bendel portable charger is so cute, and it's solar powered! I don't know about you, but I can't stand having a dead phone. Blogger Kat Tanita & Graphic Image recently launched a collection, and I thought this pink leather monogrammed agenda would be a perfect gift for anyone. Start off 2015 organized (and stylish). Another thing I love are these Gap pj leggings (not pictured), how festive? 

P.S. Remember you can get 15% off that Daniel Wellington watch with code holidaystripesandpeonies until the end of December!
