Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
Remember a little while back, we shared a guest post from one of our stores associates in Brooklyn who makes really amazing crochet vests? Well our SoHo store is having a cool event this weekend and she will be raffling off four of her beautiful creations!
Stop by the store this weekend (November 19th & 20th) and purchase a “Cozy” Product: Sweaters, Scarves, Cold, Weather, Socks, etc – and we will enter your name in the raffle to win one of the four vests! Enjoy some hot cocoa and apple cider while you shop as well :)

Our friend Elsa of the blog Styleabaad put together this awesome guest post. Enjoy!
Philadelphia Style Through Swedish Eyes
If Stockholm was a garment it would without a doubt be a black leather jacket – classic, chic and a safe style bet. Philadelphia on the other hand would be something more complex, like a multicolored romper – experimental, colorful and a bit risky.
Moving from my native Sweden to Philadelphia was a cultural shock in several ways. Never had I talked to strangers in elevators before or got a compliment for my hat from someone on the street. I also quickly realized that when my beau and I went out for a bite at night people thought we were attending a black tie event rather than having an evening snack. The 60’s vintage silk dresses I felt so comfortable wearing for dinners in Stockholm suddenly made me feel like a snob in the bar next to people in flannel shirts and flip-flops.
Stockholm is known worldwide for it’s phenomenal street style and I couldn’t agree more. The streets are crowded with well-groomed guys in slim fitted jeans and 5.8 ft. women looking like they’ve just stepped out of an edgy editorial. However Sweden has always been a homogenous society, at least compared to the multicultural United States. This may be the reason why I’ve always thought that the Stockholm style was so uniform; everyone seems to have such similar idea of fashion, to the degree that I’m wondering where the creativity is. Maybe the carbon copy fashion is in our Swedish genes because of our society’s homogenous history… but one style fits all? I don’t believe so.
In Philadelphia I found myself reinventing my style. I had been detoxed of the minimalistic and formal Stockholm style and now felt this new city inviting me to express my personal style. Philadelphia is such a diverse city. Cultures, styles and trends all blend into a mix that might not necessarily be the most trendy but has influenced me to experiment more with how I dress. In Philadelphia I dress more casual, I wear more colors and I care way less about what everyone else is wearing. I’m thankful for the inspiration my new city has given me and I kind of like what my personal style has transformed into. In fact I’ve never expressed myself more through my style than I do today.
Such an interesting perspective!! Thank you Elsa <3
Here’s the second batch of behind the scenes photos from the 1970s portion of our holiday catalog shoot in Morocco… from a scorching desert landscape to a serene oasis.
This looks so peaceful.
The Gola Retro Sneakers are my fave.

Sheer layers have been making a fashion statement around the home offices as a must-have trend. Whether worn underneath or on top, these pieces are good ways of inciting mystery. The eye gets a peek into what’s underneath, maybe a fun bandeau print or lacey detail, but never fully gets a good look. Checkout the many garments and ways in which we’re sporting the trend…

The latest trend we can’t get enough of is Snow Angel. With a new chilliness to the air and less hours of sunshine in the day, we’re brightening our spirits with shades of pink, ivory and icy blue and cozy, comfy textures that warm our souls. Winter doesn’t have to be about black, gray and deep tones, it can be as light and airy as the snow outside :) This trend makes me think of sledding all day, rosy cheeks, icicles and candy canes!
Here are some of our beautiful store girls rocking the snow angel trend.
On the left, the scallop lace tube dress with the amazing casablanca cape and faux fur arm warmers; on the right, the voile and lace slip worn with tights, legwarmers, the kimono cardigan and adorable ear flap beanie.

And our favorite snow angel layering piece, the fp one smocked beaded bandeau!

When I think of a snow angel I think of a soft wanderer, she walks quietly and oozes curiosity.
Our Snow Angel trend derived from all things soft and pretty, beautiful cozy textures hang softly
while pastels shades capture the nostalgic feeling of a dream like world. Snow Angel is about comfort,
comfort in the most beautiful light.
