Fotostrap Designer & Fotolanthropy Founder, Katie Norris, Awarded Baylor University's Young Alumna Award!

Posted on October 22, 2014 by FOTO

We are so excited and honored to share with our readers that Katie Norris, our Founder of Fotostrap has been given the Young Alumna of the Year Award from Baylor University! Katie's efforts through Fotostrap, Fotolanthropy and producing the award-winning documentary Travis: A Soldier's Story has gained nationwide exposure and we are excited that she is being recognized for her service.



In response to her award, Katie said, "This award would not have been possible without my husband Reece by my side, my incredible team, my folks for giving me the opportunity to attend Baylor, the Fotolanthropy families that so bravely shared their inspiring stories, all of those that have supported ‪#‎travisthemovie‬, and most importantly the Lord's guidance. I'm looking forward to the Homecoming festivities!  Thank you Baylor!!


The Bagby Fotostrap, our first dual-toned camera strap was crafted as a way to express our appreciation to Baylor University and to say thank you for this recognition.  For those who may not know, Bagby is a major street that runs through campus, and so many memories have been made there.  We believe that this camera strap will resonate with alumni across the country, as a way to "fling our green and gold afar, to light the waves of time." (From the Baylor Line School Song.)




Since the Baylor Football team is 6 and 1 with a new stadium that offers students and fans to walk to the game on campus for the first time in Baylor history, we thought this would be a great way to share with our friends there a way to show their love for Baylor.  Purchase your Baylor-inspired Bagby Fotostrap today and monogram it with your name or initials!

Fall Style for Men

Posted on October 14, 2014 by FOTO

Today we've picked some great finds for the guys this Fall.  Check it out:

Gap & GQ have combined forces again to bring in collections from new Menswear Desginers in America.  We are really liking the En|Noir + Gap  collection.

These new Ray Ban Sunglasses are on our list for the men in our life!

We love the large face on the  Fossil Mens Watch  and the detail on the wrist band.

The Lux Collection  from Fotostrap boasts two all-leather options: Bear (pictured) and James (brown leather).  Be sure and look through all 17 of the classic options as well--there are great colors for fall that guys will love!

This Bleeker Flap Briefcase  from Coach makes weekday commutes & business travel a breeze. 


We're always a fan of Toms because they give back, like Fotostrap does, and they're always coming out with great new options.  These wingtips from  Nordstrom  are a great staple for the Fall wardrobe. 

And last but not least, we thought we'd share with you about Foot Cardigan , an awesome sock subscription company.  This would make a great gift for a guy who's really in to details or who has just about everything.

    Four Fall Details For Your Wardrobe

    Posted on October 01, 2014 by FOTO

    Happy October!  

    Since the Fall season is here, we thought we'd look at some trends to incorporate into your wardrobe in the coming months.  By simply adding something here or there to your closet, you can really take it up a notch.



    Our first trend is leather.  You can start small with a leather boots, or a leather jacket.  Leather leggings are great for layering and look great when paired with long shirts.   We love leather accents, like this great leather wallet from the Etsy shop Harlex that could also be used as a clutch, and our leather Fotostrap is a great accessory to up the lux factor, too.


    Layering is practical and fashionable--a great combination.  Practically speaking, it keeps you warmer and allows you to easily adapt as the weather changes throughout the day.  Cool in the morning and evening?  A vest is a great choice.  If you're walking in the park, though, you might get a little toasty, and a vest is easy to take off, and not cumbersome to tote around.


    Texture is easily added in layers--whether it's a chunky necklace, like the one paired with the leather dress, or a faux fur vest, you can add as much or as little as you'd like, depending on your style and taste.


    Details are key.  Here at Fotostrap, we value details, whether it's monogramming, or stitching or styling--that's just part of our brand.  Take notes from the pictures above and see the contrasting zipper in the Burberry boots, or the gold chain of the purse.  Details elevate a simple style and add another dimension to your outfits.


    What do you see trending this Fall?  Tell us in the comments.
