Some of the newest fitting room art from out Carlsbad, CA store! Which one is your favorite? I love the last one…
Heather at the home office recommends checking out this Philly photographer this week before his show ends! Manuel Dominguez Jr.‘s photography is currently on display at Benna’s Cafe in South Philly. Heather also recommends trying the most delicious coffee and tea beverages she has ever tasted, especially the Open Fire made with soy milk.
Heather bought a print of the photo above! Her favorite part is that they are watching Rock of Love on the TV!
A comment on uwishunu (a Philly happenings blog) claims Manuel is the modern Norman Rockwell, so get there this week to check it out (show ends May 8).

We first posted photos of the sequined canvases when our NYC store opened. Now they are part of all of the FP stores’ spring display. A reader commented asking how to make these, and one of our talented display girls had some great advice I wanted to share with everyone.
For our proto, our designer actually hand sewed each sequin on by hand, and then left a space for the screen printed flower applique. She does not recommend doing that yourself! Luren suggests going to a fabric store and buying a small amount of sequined fabric, maybe the stretchy variety. This could be a little expensive, so another great alternative would be to find some sequined wonder of a dress at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. That way you would be recycling material and not spending much $$. The fabric can them be fixed onto a frame of canvas stretchers and decorated as you like.
Hope that helps! If you end up making the project, you should send me the photos and I’ll post them on the blog! Just leave your email address in a comment and I will get in touch. Happy crafting!
Here’s the latest from our display team. The stores are decorated to complement our “I Want Candy” concept and the February catalog shot in India.
Spring Display is sparkly and colorful, with sequin canvases, neon lotus lanterns floating along the walls and above the tables, and hand-printed gauze fabric yardage draped on the walls. The front window’s mannequins are surrounded by a swirl of floating bright blossoms. The stores feel bright and magical and each sequin canvas catches your eye with a unique floral print appliquéd on a bed of shimmering sequins. What do you think???
