Turkish Delight

Post image for Turkish Delight

My eyes keep dazzling over these beautiful Mediterranean inspired rings, they look like heirlooms that have come from some royal Turkish family. I tried every single one on my fingers and was captivated with their presence. They look so powerful as if they could cast magic at any given time!

Here’s a little about the designer.

Bora

Born in Turkey, Bora’s experience immersed in Mediterranean culture is one of the many things that inspires the jewelry that he makes today. His dream when coming to the US was to be a musician, but his creativity and imagination led him towards jewelry design, allowing him to use his engineering background to carefully craft his designs with close attention to detail and dimensions. His favorite material to “play” with is oxidized silver as he appreciates the historic quality of the metal, and his pieces are an abstract and interesting addition to any look.

 He works from his studio in Brooklyn, NY to create statement jewelry reminiscent of textiles and motifs found in the Mediterranean and his home country of Turkey.

 We hear at home office love his work they look extra special on too.

I bought several of his pieces this weekend. I am entranced with his work!

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: sandy

time for the last part of our holiday gift guide… it’s cold here in philly but we can’t forget about the sandys out there in warm climates, or who are just beach girls at heart. i’m one of them :)

sandy spends her holiday at – where else? – the beach! she loves going in winter because its quiet and peaceful.  she can take a walk on the beach at sunrise and be completely alone with her thoughts, only the sound of crashing waves interrupting her. she lights candles, drinks tea and catches up on her reading, and at night she grabs a blanket and heads to the beach for a bonfire with friends.

sandy can never have too many bathing suits, and our new swim shop has some beauties – she’d love them all but the mantauk reversible bikini is like two in one! she’s always losing her shades at the beach so a new pair of sunglasses is a great stocking stuffer, and she always needs more surf wax. sandy lives in our beach line and the move west maxi dress is a piece she can layer with in winter or wear over her bikini as a beach cover up.  the sundial tee and cassidy hoodie are other great layering pieces she’ll love, and the croft felt hat will keep the sun out of her eyes! sandy’s a big fan of our bralettes, especially the bandeaus – sometimes she wears them as bikini topsstraw bags are her favorite for days at the beach and she can take the pendleton blanket along with her to bonfires.  she likes natural, rustic accessories so she’d love the studded yuma ring, foothills leather cuff or mayan medallion necklace. finally,  she’d love the wool and the gang knit-your-own-bag kit for rainy days when she can’t surf!

check out the gift guides for lou, candy, meadow and ginger too.

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: ginger

ginger’s favorite part of the holiday season are the parties! whether they’re family parties with her loved ones, work parties or wild parties in the city she loves getting dressed up in her holiday finest and dancing till her feet hurt.  christmas is an excuse for her to wear gold and silver sparkles, bright reds and pops of pink to her heart’s content!

spice up ginger’s christmas by giving her a shiny chainmail bag from our vintage loves collection or some dazzling earrings.  our snake armbands will bring out her coy side and she’d flip over our leopard mini taco coin pouch filled with a necklace or ring and some gold nail polish.  ginger’s already counting down the days till bikini season so get her started with the sophia top, which she can layer with other items if she can’t wait till summer to wear it. she’d love our body con easy rider dress or flirty little numbers like the one shoulder lace trim tunic.  finally, the perfect accessories for ginger are some sheer socks to wear with her little black dress to a holiday party, a feather fedora and aviators!

in case you missed them, check out our gift guides for lou, candy and meadow as well.

thanks marci!!
Marci -Dec 25, 2010, 2:21AM
@alison - The name of the nail polish is most likely 'Hi-Tek'. China Glaze released it's "Khrome" collection sometime ago. The 'Robotika' shade has a more coppery tone to it and 'High-Tek' a more neutral tone..that's why I am pretty sure it's 'High-Tek' based on the pics in the post and the pics in the catalog (but it's hard to tell with the lighting). Hope this helps and Happy Shade Picking :-)

A couple of months ago when our team was picking out items and thinking about outfits for our December catalog, some of our home office girls put on the outfits and modeled them – and fortunately our videographer was there to capture the fun on film :) this video is too cute and funny!

we just got in this little velvet romper the other day and it’s the cutest! jemma and i decided to each style an outfit using it – hers is a dressier, going out look that i could totally see her rocking on new years eve – or any night for that matter! my look is a more casual way of wearing it… this was actually a challenge for me, as this isn’t the sort of thing i would normally wear, but once i put on the denim shirt and socks i could definitely imagine wearing this when i’m just hanging around the house. it’s so comfortable and sexy at the same time!

on jemma: velvet romper; doma studded leather jacket; croft felt hat; luna pump.

on julia: velvet romper; levi’s sawtooth denim top; zigzag reversible beanie; santa fe leather cuff; romi sheer rib tall socklink lace up camp boot.
