love our fan photos :)
fp jemma came in today wearing the cutest outfit – and the best part is she got it all for under $30 at the punk rock flea market in philly this weekend. here are the items she scored:
long smocked maxi dress $5, native indian feather necklace $1, heart bracelets $1, moon stone ring $5 and moccasins $15.
quirky but incredibly cute! an fp girl who works in one of our stores sent me the following…
“on friday i got promoted from the part-time MIT to full-time MIT and one of the associates said congrats with the cutest little present – an old glass jar filled with pink flowers & broccoli! … so strange but so fitting, i love flowers, and broccoli is my favorite food ever. i thought i’d share these pictures with you because i’ve never seen anyone arrange something like this before, and it made me smile!”
i’ve never seen anything like that either! so original and sweet. thanks for sharing :)
dj mama on the turntables – too cute not to share. happy friday!
we’re back with another how-to style session! this time jemma took the photos, i was the model, and our assistant stylist and jemma put together some great looks using the buttonfront lace back tank. i’m sold- i’m absolutely going to buy this top because there are SO many ways to wear it. i think my favorite is wearing it backwards so the lace is in the front and the buttons are in the back!
first up, here it is worn as a vest and dressed down with jeans and a tee:
here it’s dressed up with some over-the-knee boots and tucked into a skirt:
my favorite look- worn with the lace in front:
and this was jemma’s look- worn over a cute summery dress with hiking boots:

this week’s pick from our stylists is the eternal sunshine shirt! our assistant stylist says “transitioning into fall i love the idea of wearing woven button downs as layering pieces. it’s great for adding pattern and texture to your outfit.”
here are some styling ideas:
i love this shirt, i just can’t decide which color i like better!
next to one of the urban buildings there is a row of lavender bushes. now that we’ve moved i pass them on the way to and from our new building and each time, i breathe in their wonderful scent. scent is one of the most powerful triggers of memory for me and every time i smell lavender i am taken back to the south of france where i was fortunate enough to spend some time during my childhood.
the heat of the sun bearing down on my shoulders, the dust from dirt roads kicking up around my bare feet, and fields of the brightest purple lavender as far as the eye can see.
take me back.
speaking of lavender…have you ever had lavender lemonade? it’s delicious.
to make it from scratch you just need water, lemons and sugar. bring to a simmer in a saucepan and throw in five or six fresh pieces of lavender. if you’re using dried lavender, put it in a tea ball. let sit for a bit and then cool, and add a sprig of lavender for garnish.
