Awesome pictures! I haven't been to Paris in a few years but just looking at these photos makes me wish I was there right now. I see that the Louvre is in the background of one picture - seeing the Mona Lisa was an experience of a lifetime! The shopping in Paris is also unreal. I hope to get myself out there soon.

Gare du Nord--eek! I ended up there but nothing bad happened despite all the dire warnings in travel books. These girls are stylin! I love those big glasses. It is so daunting to go to Paris but these girls did well. One thing I brought worked so I wore it over and over. haha

Post image for from jemma: dear diary, this is camden town

Today I headed to Camden to soak up a little bit of Indie rock/ punk culture. It fascinates me every time. I turned up the Foals as I walked up Camden road and soaked in the sub culture that has evolved there. There is a huge punk culture mixed in with a little mod. Expect to see girls and guys wearing Dr martins everywhere or girls adopting that Dita Von Teese look.

It will sure enliven you.

I headed to my favorite cafe the spiral lounge. An all raw and organic cafe which has a beautiful view over the canal - bought my favorite smoothie of almonds, spinach, avocado, wheatgrass, spirulina, chia and xylitol then headed into the hustle and bustle of the Camden stables.

I love vintage shopping in Camden, I always find great things in Episode. There was so many fashion trends that evolved in London which makes for extremely great vintage shopping. The mods, the rockers and the punks! Now all these fashion movements from bygone eras have cumulated into an assortment of eclectic fashions.

The fashion here is influenced by grungy music and indie rock. Long known for its music heritage, certain pubs are favorite meeting spots for local musicians such as Amy Winehouse. There are many live music venues from various pubs to the famous Jazz Cafe, KoKo & The Roundhouse theatre. Boys walk around in the tightest of skinny jeans while girls look they have been rocking out hard to bands all night.

At mid afternoon I headed to The Hawley Arms, where you can experience great British pub food and the indie culture all-in-one. Amy Winehouse is a local while Kelly Osbourne, Katy Perry and the like pop their heads in now and again.

Today was inspiring for sure, the weather is mild and my mind is ticking over time. After some lentil soup, rose wine and my friend flooding the bathroom – I’m ready for some sleep!

Mina -Apr 02, 2011, 6:21AM
So many great pics! Wish I could visit Camden Town. But, er, it's Dr. Martens, not Martins. :)
benny -Mar 31, 2011, 9:34AM
Camden Town is great! Love it there, the home of punk rock. England NOT Philly!

i am completely in love with our latest vintage loves vignette, “namaste!” the selection of indian printed dresses, worn denim and woven bags are right up my alley.  i especially love the length of a lot of the dresses and that they’re shorter for going into spring and summer. perfect summer festival dress, anyone?!?

coincidentally, one of our fp girls came in today wearing a vintage dress just like the ones above! i love how she styled it with a wide belt and boots.

lou just happened to be walking by and we couldn’t resist putting her in the photo :)

I like the white coat in the back...it reminds me of the long one I used to have in my old apartment. I like all the assorted bright pillows. Yes, with the exposed brick it's totally like my old place.
niccole -Mar 30, 2011, 12:25AM
Loving the vintage pieces! I wish I worked at FP everyone there always looks so happy & you can bring your pooch to work... ENVIOUS. Keep sharing the office photos they make me smile.

Post image for Taking the boy approach

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?

Photos taken from turnedout.tv

 

Mina -Apr 01, 2011, 6:23PM
I love wearing mine with rolled skinny jeans and striped sweaters, too, like this: http://theeditrix.tumblr.com/post/4057736357. Though now that Summer's coming it'll be t-shirts and tops. Don't really consider it the "boy approach" though, since I mostly wear flat shoes of some sort, ha ha.
Emily -Mar 26, 2011, 11:07AM
I LOVE wearing skinny jeans and a top! It's comfy, cute and always a great go-to. Sometimes when no heels are wanted it's fun to do the "boy look"! www.mrscapretta.com

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.

Post image for we love marais shoes

lookbook_2010_8

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.

A-street-scene-in-the-Mar-001

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…

I need those gladiator sandals!!! Also the pictures in a picture is pretty awesome. jenny-garbutt.blogspot.com

Post image for inspiration: mood boards

i love mood boards…especially when they incorporate objects and fabrics in addition to just images. i think its why i’m always so drawn to my coworkers’ desk spaces, as they’re each like a little personal mood board. here are some that i’ve collected from around the web.
