Fabulous Fab.Pony

Back in January I stumbled upon a store called Fab.Pony where I sat in a camping chair and received a dress that I was less than impressed with. I blogged that I wasn't happy with the seams and then kind of forgot about it. I had also picked up a pair of shorts while at the store, and while they aren't part of my regular look, once in a while I still wear them because they're very cute.

Today I received a package from Fab.Pony designer Tatianna Faulkes. Inside was a dress and a note. The note said that she had become aware of my disappointment over the last dress, and she apologized. She also wanted me to have the new camping chair dress without having to wait for it.

Immediately I told my group, and we were all kind of surprised, and favorably impressed. The more likely scenario would have been the designer screaming at me for not liking her work [and she certainly wouldn't have been the first designer to throw a fit over a bad blog review!] and banning me from her store. Instead, Tatianna took the classy way. She took the professional way. I am impressed not just by the way she handled this, but also by the adorable summery dress she gave to me.

The very pretty Tiedye Sundress, in Sorbet, just perfect for the summer sun and the beach! I can already tell this is going to get a lot of use from me when I'm running around the island.

This dress is the new camping chair dress at Fab.Pony and there's a 50 minute wait for it. Well worth it, in my opinion!

Thank you so much, Tatianna, for your lovely gift and for helping me remember that even with all the drama that goes on in the SL fashion world, there are still designers like you that take the high road and believe in your product enough to make things right in a calm, professional way when someone has not been satisfied. I appreciate it and will definitely be dropping by the store again the next time I need to shop!

Very nice! I am definitely going to have to visit Fab Pony. It will be nice to support a creator who stands behind their work and takes constructive feedback like a true professional.

I'm so glad there are designers like her still around. That is a pretty dress!
