Post image for Store Style: NY & LA, Part 2

Here is part two of store style featuring our lovely New York girls!

“And love won’t play any games with you
Anymore if you don’t want ‘em to
The world won’t wait and I watched you shake
But honey, I don’t blame you
Hell, I still love you, New York”

- Ryan Adams

The sequin button down is perfect for a night out on the town!

The seamless texture top looks too adorable under the velvet overalls.

store-style-nyc

How cool are these two? Get the look: vintage tee worn over a sequin skirt or striped dress, vegan leather buttondown and ankle boots!

store-style-ny4

A similar look, with a vintage tee worn over the scallop lace tube dress with the printed kimono. So cool!

store-style-ny

The ankle crop colored skinny jean, marled yarn pullover and sugar mountain ankle boot.

ny29

I love everything about this – the reverse it kachow thermal with a seamless layering top underneath, vintage wash straight leg denim, flannel and killer boots.

store-style-ny2

Such a cute layered look with the fp skinny cord, sequin cami, anita faux fur jacket and beaded necklace scarf.

ny27

The costas striped maxi dress looks super cool with the marled yarn pullover on top!

store-style-ny5

On the left, get a sophisticated look with the extreme flares by adding a button-down shirt, sweater and fedora. On the right, model off duty Brooke Nesbitt spotted in our chevron sweater dress!

store-style-nyc

From left to right – the printed kimono looks awesome layered under a thick cardigan; vegan leather to the max with the pleated skirt (coming back in stock soon!), lace button down, vegan leather jacket, and beaded necklace scarf (how cute does it look tied in a bow?!); and another vegan leather jacket on the right.

ny26

Lastly, get this awesome look with the medallion seamless slip, flannel and vegan leather buttondown.

We can’t wait for our catalog to drop next week! In anticipation of the January book and its coast to coast theme, I thought it would be fun to check out the style of our California and New York store girls – they all have such amazing style, and you can definitely see the difference in the style of the opposite coasts. I love them both!

“Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
as the children of the sun began to awake.”

- Led Zeppelin

The reverse it kachow thermal screams Cali style – and it goes with everything! Worn here, from left to right, with: the sequin cami, destroyed denim flares and marrakesh floppy hat; denim cutoffs and zigzag turban; pieced lace maxi and headband; zig zag lurex pant and headpiece; extreme flares and hat.

store-style-la6

On the left, a super-cute summery look with the o-town muscle tank, colored skinny jean and straw fedora. The look on the right looks like it’s straight out of our blue hues collection! The destroyed denim flares, seamless texture top and caldra pullover.

store-style-california

Perfectly laid-back cool: the reverse it kachow thermal, extreme flares and galloon lace bralette.

store-style-la

Our California girls can’t get enough of the high waisted extreme flares! So flattering and cool – wear them with a muscle tee and kimono; multi stripe pullover; embellished crop tee and floppy hat.

store-style-la

The printed kimono looks awesome over the graphic moto tank and voile trapeze slip!

store-style-california

Easy dressing perfection! The voile trapeze slip with the cotton fairisle pullover, tall socks and boots.

store-style-la

On the left, the reverse it kachow thermal again, worn over the the sequin cami and ruffle leggings – such a cute laid back outfit! On the right, the zig zag lurex pant worn with a tee and maxi cardigan.

store-style-california

Great minds think alike! Two of our Cali girls wear the fp one pacific trails printed pant with a basic tee and denim button down.

store-style-la

The pieced lace maxi looks lovely paired with the lurex crochet top and a floppy hat.

store-style-california

I love this outfit! The mad cool maxi skirt, crochet bell sleeve top and floppy hat.

store-style-california

The beautiful hauz khas village top is perfect with the extreme velvet flares.

store-style-california

The lace bell bottoms, multi stripe pullover, and some pretty rad street art :)

Stay tuned for some NYC style later today!

My fav. Led Zepplin song and one of my favorite songs all together. It's the ringer on my cell phone : ) My fav. line- Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.

I would like to thnkx for the efforts you have put in writing this website. I'm hoping the same high-grade site post from you in the upcoming as well. Actually your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my own website now. Actually the blogging is spreading its wings quickly. Your write up is a good example of it.
laser hair restoration testimonials -Aug 02, 2014, 2:05AM
This herbal solution will help you achieve picture perfect hair once more. These use a number of techniques to move the natural oils down their hair such as boar bristle brushing and 'scritching' between washes. The doctors and the physicians must be experienced and trained in handling the laser instruments.

“In this modern age everything, everywhere seems to lead the senses outward and away from oneself.  Don’t be afraid of quiet. Find the time for peace and introversion, and life will have new meaning.”

 ~ “The way of Tea” by Aaron Fisher

This Holiday I spent some quality time with my family.  They flew here from Wales and brought with them a new light; I took a step back and soaked in some quiet – we  took peaceful walks  around New York where my eyes were wide open looking for unexpected beauty. And, we snuggled on the sofa with our tummies full of hearty foods until we drifted asleep. Christmas goes way too fast, don’t you think? But hey, another celebration is soon to come, New Years Eve and then a brand new year to look forward too!

Best gift? My dad saw here on the blog that I wanted a vintage camera strap, so he gave me his old one that he has had for years :)

Also really loving this book of photography by Linda McCartney – it begins with her life as a rock photojournalist who was house photographer at the Fillmore East and photographed legends like the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Doors, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, before meeting and falling in love with Paul McCartney.  Paging through the book is literally like a glimpse into her life as she saw it through her camera lens – really beautiful.

What was the best part of your holiday this year? I’d love to hear about it :)

You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am taking a look ahead to your next submit, I will try to get the dangle of it!

Your blog is absolutely amazing! I would love to see some cigar post on here because I am an avid follower!
