i can’t believe thanksgiving is the day after tomorrow… not quite sure where this year went. this time last year, i asked people around the office what they were thankful for. i was thinking about it today and this year i am definitely most thankful for the people in my life – the new ones who have made their way into my heart and the old ones that will never leave.

what are you most thankful for this year?

the “wild streak” display wall – our visual display girls made this from different yarns, fabric strips, trims, and tinsel that they fingerbraided (crochet) miscellaneous pieces of to make long braids. they also bought some plastic animals, spray painted them silver, hot glued some glitter and yarn on them and hung them into the mix. there are about 100 braids in this display stapled into the ceiling. amazing!

cameragirl -Nov 28, 2010, 5:10PM
woah... after all that ...I just wanted to state i have been a longtime FP lover. I STILL OWN AND WEAR my first FP dress from 13- 15 years ago! (Someday i'll photo it and send it) .It's timeless, as i have found most FP clothing to be, or at least the pieces i have chosen. An example:the WTF Lace up Henley is like a favorite top i wore in high school.I do not think i have thrown out or given away any of my FP sweaters, tops, dresses, etc. that i have, and i can think of only once or twice having to mend anything, and it was because my daughter who is bigger than me was wearing my clothing. Yes, she became a FP lover also at an early age, with tanks, sweaters, tights, jackets too. 15 years wear is definite quality, not flimsy. I certainly cannot come near buying everything i want, but i also don't have time to actually sew everything unique that i would like. FP is as close as i can get to actual handmade without the work, cost, search time. Thank you FP for the discount, it comes in handy. P.S. love Urban and Anthro too, there is no age on clothing- i exposed my daughter and her friend to them as well at least 10 years ago...

for today’s DIY i want to show you guys how to make snowflake panels like the ones in our new store displays! it’s actually really not as difficult as it looks, it just requires a lot of patience and good cutting skills :)

snowflake-panel

image via design sponge.

these panels immediately reminded me of a DIY i saw a while ago on design sponge – the only difference being the material.  our team actually made ours out of paper first, and then had them laser cut out of felt.

IMG_0748

what you need: paper or felt or whatever material you want to use (this is a great way to re-use old scrap paper or junk mail!), scissors, and glue or tape!

start by making as many paper snowflakes as you desire, in varying sizes, patterns and shapes – because no two snowflakes are alike ;) if you’ve never made a paper snowflake before, check out this tutorial.

IMG_0760

IMG_0764

IMG_0768

IMG_0770

IMG_0776

once you have a bunch of snowflakes, start gluing them together where they overlap, alternating shapes and sizes as you please.

IMG_0779

IMG_0780

IMG_0781

i’m going to keep adding to mine over the next few weeks!

for best results, hang your panel in front of a window and enjoy the patterns the sun leaves on the floor :)

I love this so much. Where can I get mine laser cut into felt?
Caroline -Aug 27, 2011, 5:52AM
What I would like to know looking at these images is how did you cover the seats. As we have the same ones but in brown (fake) leather and I would love to put a nice fabric on mine.

Post image for blogger wishlist

when we launched our holiday boutiques this month, i told you guys about a special section for blogger picks, featuring jemma and my favorite items. well today i wanted to share some new additions- we asked a few of our favorite bloggers to pick their favorites as well – here they are!

chantal of cocorosa – i’ve been following her blog for a while now but i had the pleasure of meeting her a few months ago and she is seriously adorable!  if you want to know what she’s like check out this video on her blog. i love people who don’t take themselves too seriously! and she always looks amazing- i think she can pull of any look!

shop chantal’s picks here.

dylana (2)

we met dylana of nana in wonderland when we worked with her and her sister natalie on our october catalog, and we fell in love with both of them! her style is a lovely combination of classic and vintage with a modern twist. she’s also a great photographer and she can play guitar and sing!

gemma

gemma of fade to black – i’ve been hooked on her blog ever since i discovered it! she has amazing style – like bohemian meets new york cool.  and she’s got serious artistic talent- check out the dreamcatcher she drew!

our holiday displays are now up in our stores and they are so, so beautiful… like stepping into a magical forest dusted with snow,  where trees drip with crystals and shiny trinkets catch the moonlight and twinkle like stars…

from our display team:

this year’s holiday display was inspired by vintage snowy showgirl dresses mixed in with antique silver and icy blue trinkets. we have intricately cut snowflake curtains paired with sheer glittery booti print panels – inspired by actual indian booti prints. we wanted to balance the delicate dresses and panels with organic branches and rugged cardboard gift boxes.  then to add sparkle and pops of color, we added the neon melon crystal chains to hang in groups from the ceiling.

their inspiration:

and now here are the installed displays at our ardmore and king of prussia, pa stores! i actually drove by our ardmore store saturday night and it looked amazing with the twinkling lights in the dark.

Yellow bridesmaid dresses are great for summer and spring weddings because they add flair and class to your wedding. We're wanting to help save money, but still appear wonderful appropriate. There are certain styles of skirts that are appropriate for most office settings and those which are not.

They might be a good fashion declaration at home however, not in Spain. So try to follow the tips aforementioned to get rid of the farmer’s tan. Back to your skin check, the first time you do the check be sure to take as many pictures as possible to show what your skin looks like.
