UPDATE: This post previously ran on November the 2nd because we love the culture of Indian so much we brought it back to inspire you this weekend.

It is really a lovely thing, just too tedious and time-consuming. So, now you know why it is applied only for special occasions. :)

Very nice mehndi art. Mehndi is a very popular art of Indian tradition. I really love it.

Always look for the extra in the ordinary, go beyond the norm and think deeper and a whole new world will appear. Never just look, examine, discuss, and open your imagination. Read more »

Post image for Sneak Peek At Our December Book With Lily Donaldson

Following the luxury and sparkle of the November holiday book, our December catalog always feels like a breath of fresh air.  It has a refreshing lightness to it, like a step in the direction of spring, but full of easy, comfortable looks that are all I want to wear this winter. Read more »

I love the belt shown in the fourth picture. Is it braided or dyed? It also looks somewhat masculine, though I love the effect. The Boho chic look has always been my preferred look for kicking around and running errands, attending casual backyard parties, etc. This belt reminds me of one I got for my boyfriend only weeks ago, a Jack Spade wingfield belt (,default,sc.html) that I quickly appropriated and began working into my early winter outfits. BTW, it's merely days until January and 2013; anybody know if the December book is still available?

Post image for Starry Eyed: Holiday Makeup Tutorial

I am not a makeup person – I think it’s beautiful on other people but I’ve just never been able to master it. However, this season I’ve been really inspired by statement makeup for holiday parties and New Year’s Eve. Read more »

Post image for Inspiration—Our Moms

UPDATE: This post previously ran on October the 15th but because our Mom’s are always a huge inspiration to us we have brought it back.

For the second post in the Our Moms series, I asked our assistant designer for color and print and FP Julia what they loved about their moms and their fashion style. The photos are beautiful, nostalgic and inspiring. Here’s our mom’s, an inspiration part two. Read more »

What a cool idea to post on. I love old pictures. So nice :)
Annusya -Dec 09, 2012, 8:25PM
These pictures are great! I wasn't born yet in the '70s and barely caught the end of the '80s, but it's so strange to see pictures of teenage girls from the '70s and early '80s and imagining that they're moms of adults! It's so...weird, lol ^-^ ♥ Annusya ♥

All of the outfits are great, but the tunic and glitter pants would be good for pretty much all ages and sizes, so that one is my favorite.

Post image for How To Create The Ultimate Layered Outfit

I might just be the queen of layering. I wear layers upon layers on a daily basis and have been doing so for as long as I can remember. Read more »

Love this so so much. Hope to see more layered outfit how-tos!

Ella, the truth about thigh highs is that you can literally wear them with ANY shoes! I personally opt for boots that are 2-3 inches above the ankle. Those are what seem to be most flattering on me -- maybe you should start there!

Post image for Guest Post: DIY Birdseed Bombs

This is a guest post from Johnie of

Going on a winter hike can be magical: the snow falling all around you, cozy mittens on your hands, hot cocoa in your thermos. But it can be disheartening to watch winter animals search for hard-to-find food. Give them a hand by mixing up a batch of birdseed bombs before you head out—tie them on trees or drop them behind you as you walk. Read more »

I know, right? Have feeders everywhere & the wildlife that visit are astounding & daily put a smile on my heart. I make a varety of suets, serve corncobs & raw peanuts to the squirrels (I have a new addition--a WHITE squirrel; turns out there are several colonies here in FL), mix all my seed with different varieties & berries, even put mealworms out for the bluebirds. Even though I do incorporate fruit, I simply never thought of using it as a "dip". Thanks for a GREAT idea. By the way, I make my own peanut butter for the wild children. The Internet has a plethora of recipes ;)
Johnie Gall -Jan 15, 2013, 1:21PM
Hey guys, Sorry to cause so much drama! I doubled checked with a wildlife rehab center in my area after writing this and they said this practice is safe and harmless as long as you use all-natural ingredients (you should only buy all-natural peanut butter anyway!) and seed formulated for wild birds. Thanks for having so much concern for the critters! JG
