Post image for A weekend makeup thought

Our model Martha Hunt styled herself in the studio on Friday. Her look – reminiscent of a 90’s Debbie Harry consisted of strong bronzed eyes and a rough and ready hairstyle.

The way she teases the camera lens when she’s in front out it is breathtaking. She totally set the mood for a Friday night.

Below is the product that was used to create her look. Stay tuned to see the look book of the style she put together.

Post image for an item we love: mochila bags

the amazing mochila bags featured in our march catalog are a true labor of love.

each bag is hand woven by tribeswomen of the sierra nevada de santa marta in northern colombia, an act of tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of preserving their culture and earning a livelihood.  they believe that the act of weaving is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is passed on from one generation to the next, and the patterns woven into the bags are said to have a spiritual and cosmological significance. the history of these bags and all of the care that goes into them makes them extremely special – something to be cherished for a lifetime.

a third of the profits for each bag sold go to different community-based initiatives aimed at children and at supporting female artisans from indigenous communities in south america.



i love how they look styled in our march catalog – the prints on the bags look awesome mixed with some of the bolder black and white prints in the clothing.

personally, i’ve got my eye on this one… i think it’s the beach bag i’ve been looking for my whole life. the perfect colors, the perfect size…i laid out what i’d pack for a day at the beach.


items pictured: crochet bikini, borderline fringe sweater, daisy chain shorts, mandy braided sandal, sunglasses, lorimer straw hat, raggy desert scarf, pattern mochila woven bucket.


check out our two kinds of mochila bags, here and here.

Post image for Odylyne

Here’s another designer that we have featured in our March book –

ODYLYNE, is derived from all things beautiful. A simple concept and blend of bohemian and vintage styles with a touch of modern, clean lines. The inspiration behind the designs are also deeply rooted in the hippie chic world…where female artist set trends while breaking the rules of tongue-in-cheek fashion. The concept stays true to its original theme of creating the whimsical drama of mystery and sexiness without all the fuss. It just feels good and makes being a goddess pretty damn effortless. 

The dress is a show stopper and can be easily dressed up or down. Here’s a little interview about the brand

Post image for sweet lou

there’s a new girl in the office, and i am in love.  meet louisiana, lou for short, the newest member of the fp pup family! she belongs to our retail operations coordinator and is a cairn terrier and australian shepherd mix.  her markings and colors are so unique she almost looks wild! but she is the softest and sweetest thing ever…she was so sleepy when i took these pictures.

why are you waking me?




and here she is hard at work on mom’s desk today…


she kills me.

Ambre -Oct 21, 2014, 11:12PM
Hi, Lou! I stumbled across your post while browsing my dog's alleged mix, who happens to be Lou's littermate from the Simpson's litter. :) Hope all is well!!!!!

i made my first vintage loves purchase the other week and i was so happy when it arrived in its lovely little tie dye bag! i totally forgot about them! i adore the colors and i want to be able to use it as a tote bag this summer, so i decided i’d add a handle!

this is super easy. all you need is a needle and thread, and whatever you want to use for the handle. i used a fabric belt that was part of an old coat i don’t even have anymore, but for some reason i kept the belt.


i sewed the strap onto the inside of the bag, below the drawstring – i wanted to still be able to pull the bag closed with the drawstring.


and that’s it!



in case you missed it, check out our post from this summer when we showed you how we make the tie-dye bags!

Post image for old san juan
