when i was looking through the photos of our new scottsdale, arizona, store i was completely captivated by this little “display moment” created by fp girl courtney.
for today’s poll i thought i’d ask you guys about denim. fp denim in particular. which of these styles would you wear the most this fall?
the fp pull on flare:
the fp textured skinny:
or the fp seamed skinny:
last week i asked which of our 3 trends for fall you loved most out of 70s groupie, sports utility and underwear as outerwear. 54 % are digging the underwear as outerwear trend, 29% 70′s groupie and 17% sports utility.
as promised, some more shots of the amazing displays in our new scottsdale, arizona store!
turbans hang in and outside the store :)
our team found these awesome vintage crates at the rose bowl flea market in california!
they used them to hold accessories…
…and as risers for the window forms :)
they even painted the heads of the pins hot pink!
isn’t this amazing? our visual display & store design assistant created this using orange plastic netting from home depot woven with turbans!
they used extra sock hangers to hang bandeaus :)
fitting room detail.
i swear they are creative geniuses. more to come… i haven’t showed you my favorite part yet!
september is yoga month! the purpose of the national yoga campaign is to educate people about the many benefits of yoga and inspire them to live healthier, happier lives. and part of this is to offer one week of free yoga at 1000+ participating studios nationwide! this is for new students, but all you have to do is take this card to your local yoga studio during the month of september. amazing!
stay tuned for some more yoga centric posts this month in celebration :)
anyone going to bumbershoot this weekend? it is the 40th anniversary of the seattle music and arts festival, and they’ve gathered a really interesting lineup- different from most of the festival lineups i’ve seen this season. here’s a look at some of the acts who will be performing, and a playlist of their music!
our newest store opened on friday in scottsdale arizona and our visual manager for the west coast sent along some great photos of the setup! she also got some amazing detail shots of the displays so stay tuned for those :)

our team gets to work :)
about to cut a rug into a circle :)
turbans about to be hung.
and they’re open for business!

what’s everyone up to this weekend? i am seeing one of my favorite bands, my morning jacket, at penn’s landing on sunday and i can’t wait!!! i have loved them for years and seeing them at this venue (which is pretty small) should be amazing. i haven’t seen them since bonnaroo ’08, when they released their last album evil urges, so i’m curious to see what songs they play.
i’m trying to get there early to get good seats so i can take pics!
if i wasn’t doing that, i would probably take a day trip to bethel, new york, for their harvest festival. our vintage buyer told me about it – it takes place on sunday at the site of the original woodstock festival and there’s a farmers market,crafts, live music and more. sounds like so much fun!
