thanksgiving day began with a light snowfall outside the window and ended with a fire-lit private gathering at my favorite philly bar… i hate winter but it made me long for a blizzard. there’s nothing better than a snow day that shuts down the city… sleeping in, playing in the snow till your cheeks are rosy and warming up by the fire. have a great weekend! xoxo

Post image for black friday

the office is deserted today – everyone’s either off for the holiday or working in our stores. the few of us that are here feel a little lonely, but the quiet is kinda nice compared to the craziness that’s probably going on at stores today…

cute shirt on our creative design assistant :)

some of you asked for a tutorial on how to make the sequin hangers in our holiday displays… well ask and you shall receive! one of our lovely visual display gals was kind enough to put this together for the blog. the hangers are actually quite easy to make!

a hanger, scissors, needle & thread, marker, pins and fabric! we obviously used sequin fabric, but any kind of fabric works and would look great. i’m already thinking about all the other fun fabrics i want to try :) and if you can’t find sequin fabric, try looking for a sequin top at thrift stores!

steps

steps (pictured above):
1. trace outline onto fabric 1/2” around outside edge of hanger – do this twice for front and back pieces.
2. cut out both pattern pieces on marker outline.
3. place the two patterns on top of each other, with insides of fabric facing out. pin together. sew tops together only, 1/4” in from edge of fabric, along pink dotted line.  if you are using sequin fabric, we suggest sewing by hand – the sequins might break your sewing machine needle!
4. turn cover right side out.
5. cut small hole in top center of hanger cover.  poke metal hanger through hole.
6. cover hanger with fabric.  sew bottom shut by hand.

all done!

bari- i think you could probably do that :)

omg I was wondering how these were made...Omg I'm so excited...now I need to find sequin fabric!!! :) <3

Post image for In touch with our designers

We caught up with our crafty knits designer to find out what she is inspired by.

In the outside world, what inspires me?…

I’m really loving all the costumes on Boardwalk Empire. The girls are dreamy, milky white skin with burgundy lips, and then all of the amazing 20s styling, oooh! So inspiring. Also loving the outdoorsy/early 90s styling on the classic TV series Twin Peaks for Fall. There were at least 3 awesome boxy tops I wanted in my closet from season one alone.

Sheer sheer sheer legs! Sheer stockings, maxis, skirts, pants & leggings. I know after the fall silhouette meeting the girls were feeling this way, but personally I think it might have more to do with my relatively new leg tattoo?!

I’m always listening to New Order, Morrissey, The Stone Roses, etc. but lately I can’t stop listening to oldies and lady gaga! Go figure! I can’t get enough of the color red. Red lips, and accessories. And ginger boys and girls too. Hehe ;)

Design-wise I’m going crazy over doing really fashion forward bodies with embellishment/ fp trim details. Finding the perfect combination of cool body with cool artwork/trims details is the best – It feels so fresh and makes me really happy!

I absolutely loveeee fp!!!!(: it has pretty much made my life...i'd loveeee to be a fp model. god i can't even imagine.. <3
Claire Anne -Nov 29, 2010, 8:19PM
I also get inspired by the women and styling on boardwalk empire, many times the costumes have reminded me of the fp style :)

i can’t believe thanksgiving is the day after tomorrow… not quite sure where this year went. this time last year, i asked people around the office what they were thankful for. i was thinking about it today and this year i am definitely most thankful for the people in my life – the new ones who have made their way into my heart and the old ones that will never leave.

what are you most thankful for this year?

Post image for tunesday

today’s tunesday post is from fp jemma!

A blend of hazily new wave-tinged pop, Twin Shadow has become a constant play on my ipod.

Swooning tunes with a sweetened distortion, it’s hard not to groove along to this band.

Honey coated lyrics and soft space-like light made my night last Wednesday, when I went to see this band at Johnny Brenda’s.

(a local philly pub where many up and coming artists pass through)

Definitely a band to get in your playlist.

check out some tunes below!

We love this Fp one Bralette here at the office. Our lingerie buyer is wearing hers with a leather skirts.

It’s such a beautiful little item that can make such a big difference to a simple outfit whether you choose to wear it under a basic tee or laying it over your tops and dresses. It’s a little festive gem that will put a smile on anyone’s face whether you’re looking at it or wearing it!

We Love It!
