last week i received an email from a reader who said that she got married last summer and wore a free people dress before the ceremony, and that it helped to make her special day even better. she also sent a link to her photo album and i was completely blown away – i always find myself drawn to the small details that people put into their wedding day to make it personal and special.
you may remember, one of our fp girls wore this same dress for her wedding too! i can see why, it’s beautiful. i love the blue shoes she paired it with, and the groom’s converse sneakers!
the location looks stunning too! thanks for sharing :)

our director of design and image is taking part in an event this weekend called “yoga stops traffick,” with the goal of helping the odanadi organization put an end to human trafficking in india. last year 1,500 people joined together in yoga studios, parks, beaches and mountaintops around the world to show their support. the event takes place tomorrow, march 12th, all over the world. here in philly you can join in at mount airy yoga between noon and 2 pm, and provide a suggested donation of $20. for more info click here.
*UPDATE 3/14 – congrats to our winner, fariza from california!*
i love everything about our spring store displays, but my favorite part are the amazing fabric covered suitcases. so i was very excited that our display team brought this beauty over to me for us to give away on the blog! can you imagine waiting for your luggage at baggage claim and seeing one of these come around on the conveyor belt?! talk about one of a kind!
underneath the fabric is a durable plastic suitcase, so these can be used although i’d recommend being gentle with it, due to the delicate nature of the hand-sewn fabric and embellishments.
to enter the giveaway, click here and fill out the simple form. we will leave it open for a week and i’ll pick a winner at random on monday. good luck!

monday’s can be a little rough so i thought i’d try to make it a little better by giving you the march calendar a day early :)
i love march…those first few days when you realize a light jacket is enough, the trees begin to come alive again and the air isn’t quite so bitter, you leave work and it’s still light outside…it’s the best feeling. i am very much anti-winter but it’s worth suffering through just for the sweet feeling when spring thaws the earth.
i think our graphic designers captured that feeling perfectly with the march calendar… click here to go to our flickr page, where you have the choice of downloading either the regular or widescreen version.
