hey! been loving the calenders, but this one feels off season to me...the colors remind me of spring, not fall! needs more coziness and darker, warmer tones and textures...

Post image for blogger field trip

yesterday morning jemma and i went on a little field trip in old city, philadelphia, to visit some of our favorite shops and take photos for the blog!

five

first we went to vagabond boutique and yarn shop, which is definitely one of my favorites. they carry brand names and vintage pieces as well as yarn and knitting supplies, and i love the way the interior is decorated – lots of wood and natural touches like antlers.

the other store i wanted to mention is called art in the age of mechanical production. this place is really cool – it’s a combined store and gallery space, based on the idea of offering artwork in a broader context. it is also the home of alcoholic root tea – an herbal remedy first created by native americans. during prohibition, the alcohol was removed by a philadelphia pharmacist and re-introduced as the root beer we are familiar with – until art in the age brought it back. entering the store almost feels like going back to the pre-temperance time period – it’s full of antique trinkets and artistic displays.

we also met one of the sweet employees at the store, erin, who just happened to be wearing free people!

while in the shop we both found ourselves admiring these adorable little leather books, and erin informed us that the artist who makes the books would be holding a show at the store for first friday, along with her husband. walter and margaux kent are the philly-based artists behind peg and awl and the black spot books. i definitely recommend checking out both etsy shops, their stuff is adorable! margaux makes the books out of found leather items like shoes, moccasins, wallets and sofas – some are small enough to wear on a necklace, so you always have it at your disposal if you want to write something down or draw :)

i definitely plan on stopping by tomorrow evening – for more info on the event, click here.

art in the age of mechanical production is so awesome and their "Root" is so good, and the wall paper with the letters A, T, and I are really clever. Love the clothes too

Post image for a baby shower, fp style

today our team held a baby shower for our visual display and store design manager – one of the very talented creative ladies behind our incredible stores!  as you can imagine, our visual team went all out for her baby shower.  they even decorated a golf cart that they drove straight up to her desk to pick her up and drive her over to the outdoor location where the shower was set up! here are some photos from the celebration.

kaitlin, a sales associate at our roosevelt field mall store in NY, uses old free people catalogs to make these awesome notebooks and frames! i keep all of my old fp catalogs and use them in collages, but i might have to try this instead…

I can't believe other people collect freepeople catalogs too! lol i felt kinda weird til now doing that but they are so beautiful and stylish in a not going out soon unique way the outfits are put together they just always inspire me so i have them back a few years. At least til before the first (an only i think) intimately free catalog...

Post image for have a good weekend, folks!

spent the last couple of hours listening to lcd soundsystem sound-checking next door.  torture, but also pretty cool. tried to sneak onto the tourbus or into the building as they were setting up… and failed.  oh well, happy friday!

AH where can i get those little black booties on the right!?!?
Maria -Sep 26, 2010, 5:06PM
I wish my Friday's looked like that! I have a question about look 4 from the lookbook on the FP website-- I know the jacket/vest is from the Muubaa Convertible Leather Trench Coat, but where can a girl on a budget find something like that?? Would free people make that piece as a separate?! The whole jacket is fabulous and with so many wearable options, well worth the price, just not in my price range...Thank you!!
