the countdown is on.
our beloved customer service manager is pictured on this year’s eagles season tickets! to show their appreciation for their biggest fans, the eagles put their photos on the tickets, saying “we reached out to you to share your eagles stories with us and we were touched by the depths of your passion for eagles football. all ten of this year’s tickets feature fans with a unique perspective on what it means to be an eagles fan.”
bob’s story? “i painted E-A-G-L-E-S on my neighbor’s roof for the planes flying overhead. now did she know about it? well…”
i love it! bob will also get to be on the field at game one to start off the eagles chant :)
the last photo was taken by our videographer and is such a great shot it was posted on jeffrey campbell’s blog!
i’m all about slips right now. they’re light and airy for summer and perfect for carrying over into fall and winter as layering pieces. i have my eye on a couple of these… which one is your favorite?
the fields of lace dress:
or the pointed maxi slip:
the winner of last week’s poll was the vintage mandala bag with 42%!
this week i thought i’d share these posts fp jemma put together about what our stylists are into right now!
first, our assistant stylist:
I am going through a fashion rut right now – I just want to start styling for fall already and start layering! These are some things that I currently love for fall…
Rag and Bone Fall 10
Knee socks, fairisle sweaters, great wovens. Tons of layering. Gothic jewelry. Very much inspired by the Craft right now.
Erin Wasson from November 2006
and our associate stylist:
So I’m currently obsessing over an array of things! Fall is just around the corner and my closet could use some fresh new pieces! Top on my list is crazy big vintage bell bottoms (the bigger the better) and funky graphic tees! I need need need these custom hand knitted bell bottoms from the Etsy designer, Jane Oh.
I’m also loving the lingerie as outerwear trend that happening right now! It’s a great transitional trend that can easily be updated for fall with over the knee socks, big chunky sweaters and boots!
Can I also just say how freakin cool all the August accessories are!! We can’t wait to style with all the Navajo inspired jewelry, bags, and shoes!! Some of my favorite Fall 2010 runway shows so far are Sonia Rykiel (personal fav) and of course Ana Sui with her crazy color palate, mix of texture and print and those crazy printed tights! Oh yeah and last but not least….def jumping on that funky color hair trend! Just need to decide what color…blue or purple??? Ok, I’m rambling now…gotta go!
“we went back to morocco for 7 days to shoot the august catalog. we traveled from marrakesh to morocco’s “hollywood town” of ouarzazate and then 7 hours into the sahara desert from there. it was an amazing trip… we laughed a lot, slept under the most stunning stars, rode camels… i will never forget this adventure.”
much more to come…
on the trek to building 25, sunlight filters down from the sky and presses summer gently on the shoulders. walk through the double doors and you enter a different season entirely. while i was sitting in on a meeting yesterday, i found myself casting wistful glances at the cardigan/sweater/jacket/blanket clad shoulders around me, all the while struggling to banish the impulse to hurl myself at a sweater sample and disappear inside of it. it seems that spending the day in such a boldly air conditioned building has tricked me into thinking that it is winter.
everywhere i look i see plush cardigans and deliciously cozy knits. the we the free navajo cardigan that i have had my eye on since it first appeared on the web has done more than turn me onto the navajo-inspired trend. i now find myself feverishly looking up sweaters and moccasins, dreaming of the warmth and comfort they would bring. from what i have seen of what’s to come, i think free people reads my mind.
i decided to take a walk around the office to see how FP girls keep warm…
roger snug and warm in his fur coat :)
here are some lovely pieces to wrap yourself up in:
be still, my heart, a cozy blanket with sleeves…

fp jemma came in today wearing the cutest outfit – and the best part is she got it all for under $30 at the punk rock flea market in philly this weekend. here are the items she scored:
long smocked maxi dress $5, native indian feather necklace $1, heart bracelets $1, moon stone ring $5 and moccasins $15.
we’re back with another how-to style session! this time jemma took the photos, i was the model, and our assistant stylist and jemma put together some great looks using the buttonfront lace back tank. i’m sold- i’m absolutely going to buy this top because there are SO many ways to wear it. i think my favorite is wearing it backwards so the lace is in the front and the buttons are in the back!
first up, here it is worn as a vest and dressed down with jeans and a tee:
here it’s dressed up with some over-the-knee boots and tucked into a skirt:
my favorite look- worn with the lace in front:
and this was jemma’s look- worn over a cute summery dress with hiking boots:
read more for more photos and for details on each look!
this week’s pick from our stylists is the eternal sunshine shirt! our assistant stylist says “transitioning into fall i love the idea of wearing woven button downs as layering pieces. it’s great for adding pattern and texture to your outfit.”
here are some styling ideas:
i love this shirt, i just can’t decide which color i like better!
