Post image for A Dreamy Night at FP Portland

Remember how I told you our Portland store was having an awesome event with artist Rachael Rice? Well she was kind enough to send me a little write up and some photos from the event! I’m so sad I wasn’t there, it looks like it was a magical night :)Read More

My goodness. Coming from a 'real live native' myself, I'd like to say that the comments provided by the other 'real live natives' are very angry and rude! We have no idea what others have been throug, regardless of skin colour, so saying 'priveledged white girls' is extremely uneducated and a little hateful. I think you ladies are absolutely adorable! Keep up the good work!

My best friend's uncle used to make these back when we were kids. He admitted dream catchers were not a tradition of his particular people. But he said none of his customers questioned the authenticity of his art since he was an old "indian" guy. Don't think that this cultural appropriation is something that only privileged whites do. Very little in this world is ever authentic.

Post image for Blogger Diary: Home Sweet Home

This weekend I suffered from nostalgia, thoughts of home over consumed me and made me quite homesick heavy; it’s always this time of year that I feel this way maybe it’s the dark nights or the grey dreary weather that brings England into my mind… who knows. I spent my days this weekend thinking about Sunday Roasts, long strolls around Notting Hill, and lazy days inside a cozy pub chatting with friends. Here are some snap shots that helped me get through the feeling this weekend. Even though I get like this from time to time, America is where I am and I’m going to give it my all. You only live once, right?

 America and British love!

Post image for Store Style: Intimately FP

As I mentioned the other day, we can’t get enough of our new intimates.  We love them for lounging around the house, but we also love wearing them out – adding little touches of velvet and sparkle that are perfect this time of year.  We decided to ask our California FP girls to give us some styling inspiration on how they would wear their intimates all year round!

One of our favorites this holiday season is the beaded bandeau – it looks adorable peeking out under a plaid buttondown, worn with a lace maxi skirt!

This is such a cute layered look: the sequin cami worn with the lovebug striped thermal, victorian angel cardigan, tall socks and boots.

intimates

The dotted lace tee looks lovely with the pleated wideleg pant and a vest.

intimates

A delicate slip and sequin cami look perfect under the gorgeous long chiffon bed jacket, topped off with a headpiece.

intimates

I love this romantic outfit! The velvet extreme flares and new romantics chiffon capelet with the printed velvet bralette underneath.

intimates

Get festive for the holidays in the voile and lace slip worn over dainty shorts with knee high socks and the fairisle maxi cardigan when it gets chilly!

intimates

Perfect for a night out: the medallion seamless slip worn with a slip in a contrasting color underneath, the joe lace up boot (the new black/brown color is gorgeous), statement necklace and headpiece!

intimates

Here’s a great idea – wear a long sleeved layering tee under a cropped bralette! Add the reversible fur vest and pile on the rings and necklaces for this cool layered look.

intimates

Layering tops like the floral burnout henley are also great for taking your favorite summer tank into fall and winter!

intimates

Add a little sparkle to a tomboy look of destroyed denim and the open lace sleeve top with the sequin cami.

intimates

The long chiffon bed jacket looks amazing over the beaded bandeau and cutoffs with cute little ankle boots!

intimates

And lastly, we have the sequin cami paired with the adorable high waisted textured shorts and fairisle maxi cardigan. Love!

Lauren -Dec 11, 2011, 3:22PM
The last look is so fantastic - Love the colours of the cami/ shorts/ nails/ hair!

Post image for Happy Friday!

What’s everyone doing this weekend? I wanted to tell you about an amazing art show taking place in Philadelphia so if you live in the area listen up!

Two of our fp girls have teamed up to put on a show at Reward in Old City, Philadelphia, called “A Distant Land to Roam.” The opening is tonight and several of us fp girls will be there. I can’t wait – to say these girls are talented is an understatement! Here’s a little sneak peek:

So amazing – I’m going to take some photos at the show to share with you guys!

nyc

On Saturday morning I’m heading to New York City! On Saturday I plan on spending some time in my favorite part of the city, Brooklyn, and doing some vintage shopping and maybe hitting up an art show. I’m staying at the Bowery House – I’m excited to check this place out, it’s a great option for anyone on a budget, and looks super cool.

Then on Sunday I’m heading to the Upper East Side for the event at Free People 3rd Ave, where I’ll be running a DIY ornament station from 12-5pm! If you’re in the area come hang out!!

Post image for A Walk in the Woods

I am 100% without a doubt a summer person – I love the heat, I love the sun and the feeling of freedom that hangs in the humid air, even though you still have work. But I will admit, there is no better time of year for a good weekend hike than the fall. The crisp air is much more comfortable to work up a slight sweat, and the scenery is breathtaking. Not to mention, I love the sound of leaves shuffling under foot.  Here are some photos from a fall hike in Fairmount Park – a place that lets you forget you’re in a city and reconnect with nature.
