Post image for fp holiday gift guide: ginger

ginger’s favorite part of the holiday season are the parties! whether they’re family parties with her loved ones, work parties or wild parties in the city she loves getting dressed up in her holiday finest and dancing till her feet hurt.  christmas is an excuse for her to wear gold and silver sparkles, bright reds and pops of pink to her heart’s content!

spice up ginger’s christmas by giving her a shiny chainmail bag from our vintage loves collection or some dazzling earrings.  our snake armbands will bring out her coy side and she’d flip over our leopard mini taco coin pouch filled with a necklace or ring and some gold nail polish.  ginger’s already counting down the days till bikini season so get her started with the sophia top, which she can layer with other items if she can’t wait till summer to wear it. she’d love our body con easy rider dress or flirty little numbers like the one shoulder lace trim tunic.  finally, the perfect accessories for ginger are some sheer socks to wear with her little black dress to a holiday party, a feather fedora and aviators!

in case you missed them, check out our gift guides for lou, candy and meadow as well.

i’m crazy about our collection of old west-inspired accessories.  the colors are so beautiful… i don’t know what it is about turquoise and coral but it always draws me in.  i love the idea of layering a whole bunch of these necklaces and bracelets. which is your favorite?

the sliding rock layering necklace by vanessa mooney:

the four corners bangles by sibilia:

the isis breeze necklace by rejoice the hands:

the fiesta bangles by vanessa mooney:

the peoria necklace by archive:

or the rocky canyon arm cuff by cleobella:

and here are the results from last week’s lookbook poll – only 6 votes separated the top two looks but the winner was look 6! i’m a big fan of that one :)

ah! loving these little magazine christmas trees and how easy they are to make! i saw them on the blog green eyed monster and thought it was such an awesome idea for using old magazines. i of course have a ton of free people catalogs lying around so i thought… why not? i decided to use our november catalog since its nice and thick and i knew it would make a great tree.


start by folding the first page over as pictured above.


next fold the same page over again, and then fold up the part hanging over the bottom so that you have a straight edge along the bottom.


repeat this step on every page of the magazine – i actually thought it was kinda cool to see how different pages looked folded together like a collage.


once all your pages are folded, stand the tree up and spread out the pages until you’re happy with how it looks! and of course, the more the merrier :)

Post image for holiday downloads for you!

good morning! we have a new graphic design assistant and she made these adorable holiday downloads for the blog – the smaller one is iphone wallpaper and the larger one is for your computer desktop. but as our graphic designer suggested (and i agree) it would make such cute wrapping paper, don’t you think? just print some out and use it to wrap small gifts!

click on the images to go to our flickr page and download them. enjoy!

she made a really cute card too, i’ll post that next week :)

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: meadow

meadow loves to spend the holidays outdoors. every year she and her friends take off for a cabin in the woods where they spend nights huddled round bonfires drinking hot chocolate, telling stories and playing songs on guitars and wooden flutes.  they wake up early to watch the sun rise before exchanging gifts on christmas morning.

meadow wishlist

win meadow over with gifts that appeal to her creative side and connection with nature.  the vintage peter max postcards would inspire her artistically, as would a journal to record her thoughts and dreams.  she would love our western-inspired jewelry like turquoise necklaces and rings, the native gypsy cuff and meeko feather earring. The lasso pony holders will keep her hair out of her face on adventures and she’d love the gretta over the knee slipper socks because they’re cute, comfy and environmentally friendly. meadow wears clothing that is special and unique like her, and the fp one desert florals maxi skirt would remind her of a field of wildflowers. the fp one bandana tie halter has the creative details she is drawn to, and she would live in the desert peasant tunic. finally, tough accessories like a leather crossbody or hat that will last her a lifetime.

I view all the design! I am also a meadow girl and like the meadow design and fashions. Thanks for providing such useful information. I really appreciate your professional approach.

I always thought I was most of a Meadow girl, and this description just proves it! Most of the things were already on my wishlist. And drinking hot chocolate around the fireside - what could be better? :)! LOVE IT !

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: candy

candy dreams all year long of a white christmas and counts down the days until its time to decorate for the holidays.  tradition is important to her and even hanging ornaments on the tree is special to her as each ornament  holds sentimental value, reminding her of her childhood and years passed. on the weekend she’ll put on christmas carols and fill her home with the scents of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg as she bakes cookies and then walks from door to door offering them to her neighbors.

she loves nothing more than giving gifts to her loved ones, and when it comes to receiving, her favorite gifts are the ones that are the most thoughtful and meaningful.

candy wishlist

sentimental gifts like a ring with her initial or a bracelet with gems the color of her birth stone will mean the world to candy.  a vintage tin full of her favorite candy and sweet greeting cards so she can send her love to her friends and family are gifts she will cherish.  soft, girly items like our centered pullover in soft pink, the heart on your sleeve thermal, lacey layering skort and crochet socks and hat will appeal to her fashion sense and top it all off with the perfect stocking stuffer – our mini taco coin pouch. fill it with barrettes, a filigree hair comb and some nail polish for an added surprise!

p.s. in case you missed it, check out our lou gift guide. sandy, ginger and meadow comiong soon!

I thought I was Candy for awhile, but not this one because I never really liked the holidays. I dream of things but just not the holidays. I like Candy, more so, when she wears very passionate, romantic styles..

I love this! I actually really love the dress on the right on the little "fp holiday gift guide" sign. Is that made by free people and do they still make it? :)

the holiday decorations are up in building 543 and it looks lovely… the trees, garlands and twinkling lights bring a warmth to the space that is very comforting as it gets colder and colder outside…

Amanda -Dec 10, 2010, 2:44PM
