How Fairfax fans are surviving lockdown.

The perfect quote from the Fairfax and Favor showroom.

During these unprecedented times, and as a result of lockdown, it is so important to keep ones morale up. Members of the Fairfax and Favor Club on Facebook are no exception. Posting their wonderful collections, their new purchases and outfit inspirations, the club has become quite a social community. With new friendships being made, and experiences shared, the club has certainly come into it’s own.

A privilege that only club members have access to🤫

Helped along the way with the introduction of the devine new S/S 2020 collections, which we have all been chomping at the bit to get, and there is still more to follow shortly. The guys at F&F have pulled out all the stops to bring us together, and get us talking. #getbritaintalking.

As a group and club we are all doing “our bit” too, as each time you buy, 10% of the money from your purchase is going straight to the NHS charities. What a wonderful thing for F&F to do, but lets face it, that’s what makes this brand so special to us all.

Throughout all walks of life, from the all important NHS staff and key workers (to whom we are all eternally greatful💙💙💙), to those of us who are safe indoors. Whether we have a good salary, or (like myself) have to save hard or buy via Klarna, we all have this one thing in common; we are passionate about Fairfax & Favor. Regardless of if we have 10 pairs of boots, or one purse, we are proud of our own purchases.

One of the most important emails any Fairfax & Favor fan loves to receive. There are always plenty shown on the club’s posts.

From that first purchase. We have all started with just one pair of shoes or boots, one bag, belt or purse. Then creeps in a pair of tassels, and so it begins….you are hooked. The Fairfax and Favor mantra for so many of us is, “Once you shop, You can’t stop”. Now though, we have become excited for each other.

It has to match. With so many colours of tassels to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice, and never short of ones to match to outfits. A lot of the members have very impressive collections, but will always find a place for one or two new pairs.

A perfectly matched outfit. Navy Amiras with Burgundy tassels and Cap, to go with a Burgundy Sweatshirt, and dark jeans.

Krystal,(who is new to F&F; is already matching tassels to clothes). It’s a wonderful group, everyone so nice and inspiring and it’s even lovely everyone praises everyone’s outfits and gives advise and shows there own styles it great!! So very happy to be a part of things 😍

This is my first pair of Regina’s I’ve seen so many around and thought I’d match mine with my Musto Skeet vest, I’m very proud of how they’ve turned out and that I’m now apart of a family. I don’t look at it like a group more lots of friends with the same interests xx

Claire Louise. Another lady who loves to have things matching. Unable to find the mini Windsor to match her Hemsbys, decided to reach out to another group member, thus proving you only have to ask. That is the beauty of the club.

I have been after a Coral or Tangerine Mini for months. I asked this lovely lady who posted a pic if she wanted to sell hers. I told her how much I wanted one and that I had bought the Hemsbys and never managed to get the mini. She said I needed it more than her. So kind. Cheered me up during lockdown xx

Audrey. Some members will put outfits together to show on the club’s page, as an inspiration for others. It’s lovely to see how many different combinations crop up on the page. Matching colours, and styles, giving ideas you may not have thought of.

Vicky. Resplendent in her leather Reginas, before lockdown and during lockdown. Like most members, because we have to stay in, it doesn’t mean we can’t wear our F&F’s. Just like when we were little girls, we love to dress up.

The advice and support from this amazing group helped me to make my first purchase and I’ve never looked back!

The Blue Box Obsession. Are collections your thing? There are no shortage of photos within the club. The boxes and their contents, and not forgetting the all important tassels. After all, who could forget them? It doesn’t matter how many, or how few items you have, you will always receive loads of praise from your fellow members, and the all important conversations will organically flow.

The Blue Box obsession is very very real
The now iconic “Blue Box”. Originally the boxes were white, and some of us have at least.

From the Blue Box to it’s content. One thing I love, is when members post a photo of their collections. Not just laid out, but like here, in a wonderful display. The pride is palpable.

Ellie Mae.I love Fairfax and Favor for their continuous quality and variety of products, my favourite definitely has to be the Explorers because they are so versatile and can dress up or down even sludge through mud and cow poo and then simply just wash off with hosepipe thank you x

Ellie Mae’s pride and joy. Her wonderful collection, which I have no doubt will continue to grow.

Ali Being part of ‘the club’ has made me feel less of a freak tbh. I have had a love of F&F boots since the first pair that my husband bought me (Tan Reginas). I find the support, and positivity, from everyone so empowering. We don’t dash anyone… and the best bit is that you don’t need to be a twiglet model to actually look and feel good in a pair of F&F boots xx

Ali’s collection thus far. Impressive isn’t it?

The all important accessory… The Boot Tassel. This is another item whereby we all have something in common. It will all start with just one pair, but we all know ‘From little acorns, mighty oaks grow’ so it is the same with tassel collections. We are all guilty of encouragement on this score. The inevitable “Oh! Go on, get them” comment will crop up, time and again. But with such myriad of colours to choose from, it’s hard to resist.

Just a few members’ collections. Our very own rainbows of hope🌈

We have even started getting our pets involved. Just to cheer each other up, and break the monotony of the lockdown days, I’ve noticed we’ve started to see what our pets look like in the Signature cap and I am no exception, even putting matching scarves on my two… “they all look quite dashing if truth be told”.

Finally:- To the unsung heroes, who are keeping us all talking, and brightening our days…. The DPD drivers. These wonderful courier drivers are often overlooked as regards Covid-19. Yes they deliver our fabulous purchases all of the time, but now we are mentioning them in our posts. Without these guys our long days would be a lot longer. So hats off to the key workers.

Our lovely courier drivers. Let us give these guys a round of applause. It’s because of the DPD drivers, we wouldn’t be talking so much.

I’d like to thank all members involved in this blog for their photos, and their comments. It just goes to show how much we do have in common. So come on people, let’s keep talking.

Until next time, always remember Be happy. Stay happy, and most of all Have fun.

Happy Easter one and all. Stay safe, and stay home🌈. Let’s do our best to help the NHS💙💙💙
