you guys have probably heard of erica domesek of the blog p.s. – i made this… by now – she’s a DIY genius. i love how she can make a project i’d never even think of seem so easy and do-able.  for example, this feather headpiece – with spring and festival season creeping up on us it definitely has the wheels in my head turning, thinking of fun headpieces i can make and wear all summer long.

p.s. i made this…

Post image for model off duty

our creative design assistant snapped a couple pics of model sasha pivovarova when she arrived for our catalog shoot on thursday… she looks effortlessly cool in leather pants, black shoes, tank and messy braid – and the tiger on her shirt was definitely appropriate!

i snapped this photo of her bracelets and rings on the makeup table – i love that she just wears a couple of friendship bracelets!

and jemma took this photo when she arrived on day two, looking nice and cozy for the cold day in nyc!

Post image for Extreme series part one: Boxy Shapes

I have always been a fan of the oversized look. I usually opt for the two sizes bigger idea when it comes to buying tops  -  I like the way they fall and how much freedom I have to play around with different silhouettes.

Lately bloggers have been catching my eye and the ways they have been styling these extreme XL ideas.

I love this look with maxi skirts with a small section of the top tucked in to give a draping effect or just worn loose to give that relaxed and comfortable feel.

It’s quite a bold idea… how do you guys feel about this look???

I love it. Even when an item is meant to have a loose fit, I always go for the largest size possible.
Dee -Jan 25, 2011, 5:35PM
I can't remember the last time I wore something fitted. I love the oversize look. Not only is it comfortable but you're right; you can play around with so many types of silhouettes. This makes it such a great trend for any fashion forward girl!

I absolutely love free people. Your clothes are amazing, I love the vintage style. Sadly, It is so darn expensive. But I go into your store and get great ideas about clothing, and splurge on one product, and go buy cheaper versions of your products at others stores!

Post image for chez miss pandora

ever wish you could take a peek inside the home of a fashion blogger? i always imagine what their homes look like, what they surround themselves with and what inspires them – the way people decorate their place is so indicative of their personality – i love checking out peoples’ music and book collections in particular :)

our stylists snapped some photos at louise ebel’s home in paris and isn’t it charming? i love the little knick knacks everywhere – you can tell she’s a sentimental person who holds on to gifts, treasured items and dried flowers, which i love! i’m the same way.

Post image for Lovely Leopard

Animal Print would you wear it??

Leopard is the type of print I have a love/hate relationship with. I can’t decide… I look at it and think naaaaaaaaaah, and then my conscious slaps me in the face and says “hang on a minute this can be cool”. Then, I bounce around with ideas of how to wear it.

I’m consciously seeing it everywhere lately, and I think it’s growing into a big trend.
I think the way I would wear it would be… in chiffon. It would have to be muted. If I were to go bold with the print it would have to be in sneak peek accessories.

I like seeing people wearing chiffon leopard maxi dresses and shirts too. Ahhhhh, see my mind is all over the place with this print.

I’m very intrigued to see if any of you Fp girls would wear animal print and if so how??

there was more at this show - but sharing my faves & one scary one. http://www.flickr.com/photos/chloe-and-ivan/5389437138/ the girl with the Grey stripes and the Leopard skirt looked great. the coulda' been FP girl in her leopard jacket looked great amongnst the Barbie girls.
Gianna -Jan 20, 2011, 1:41PM
Just got a leopard fur coat for christmas- it is muted like you said. with darkerbrowns. I love it. Also, I always imagine myself in leapord skinny jeans, an oversized white tee, and red lips.

Post image for in the mix

it’s a miserable day in philly and after thawing my car out of a block of ice i am stealing the energy and warmth of these behind the scenes pictures from our latest special shoot.  the shoot was for the mixed print trend on our website right now – we love how fresh this trend feels going into spring. to get the amazing special shots our team went to the home of our creative director, which they turned into a bohemian lounge full of rich prints and bold colors. looking at these photos (taken by our talented videographer) my breath was taken away…they look like they’re in a caravan on their way to a festival… with puppies of course :)
