I’m addicted to street style sites; I find them ever so inspiring when it comes to putting together
fresh new looks.
Lately I have been seeing a lot of brogues on girls adopting that Annie Hall
sophisticated tomboy vibe. I like this look going into spring but I’m not sure which way I’d
prefer to take it – do I give my feminine outfit that little bit of attitude or do I go for the full blown tomboy
look, teaming it with denim skinny jeans and shirts?! Either way I think it rocks!
How would you guys wear them?

i grew up in the city for the earlier part of my childhood, and i’ve always felt really fortunate to have that experience. we lived at the end of a quaint, tree-lined street where everyone knew each other, us kids all played together, and block parties were a common occurrence. i took art classes (and went sledding) at the museum of art, loved riding what i called “accordion buses” and playing at cherry street park, and regularly went shopping at reading terminal. i can’t say that i always loved going there, as it was typically a crowded weekend day, but it always seemed so full of activity and excitement, and of course, delicious food.
it was recently named one of the top ten public markets in all of the united states, so i thought i’d take a trip down memory lane and visit for the first time in years to take some photos.
reading terminal is located on 12th street between market and arch in philadelphia – check out the website here.
a little over a year ago one of our fp girls adopted a sweet little bull mastiff puppy named jazmyn…you may remember, i posted some photos of her back then:
jazmyn doesn’t come to work with her mom because she’s got a little too much energy to sit at her desk all day, but she came in today to say hello and look how much she’s grown!!
such a pretty girl :)
Everyone loves engineered prints here at the office teamed with cute crop tops. Check out one of our designers look in the video below –
She has worked this trend into a look that’s totally her own. I love how she has made a vintage skirt into a modern fresh outfit and her ring is to die for!!!
The crop top and shoes are free people check them out here.
marais USA was founded in 2007 by two parsons school of design students named catherine chen and haley boyd. while in school they both worked as waitresses around new york city and throughout their college years of shoe shopping in the city, found a need for simple but fashionable shoe styles that were still affordable. from this discovery their company was born, and they now work in brooklyn designing “essential” shoes for girls like them, who want to be stylish but don’t want to break the bank. their inspiration comes from a summer spent in le marais, the eclectic paris neighborhood known for its shopping, where there is “literally something for everyone” – a philosophy that holds true for their company as well.
le marais, paris
it’s fitting that the three shoe styles we’re carrying right now from marais are each completely different, too. i took some inspiration from their website, where they feature four very different “marais girls,” and found three very different gals here at our office who each loved a different pair of their shoes!
i made a collage for each one of them using images they keep around their desks as inspiration –you can see how different their styles are just looking at these images…
one last batch of behind the scenes photos from our march catalog shoot… i know i say this every month but i seriously can’t wait for our april catalog. it might be my favorite one ever…stay tuned ;)
