i may be biased by my love for san francisco and marin county, but our new store in corte madera, california is stunningly beautiful. here are some gorgeous photos taken by our visual display manager on the west coast!

i love the stack of fabric covered suitcases!
i love this photo :)
our fp girls created a beautiful “white shop” in the area of the store with this gorgeous tiled floor, keeping the theme of the white story currently on our website! looks lovely.
and this…is just amazing.
the colorful central display is illuminated by the sky light above it on sunny days.
can you guess what day this photo was taken?
one of our fp girls puts the finishing touches on a display…and the checklist is complete!
and i had to include this photo… this is the superintendent dave who helped our team with the opening, standing next to a sign he made (that did not stay up long). love it :)
one more shot of the beautiful bridge… congrats to our team for another awesome store, i can’t wait to visit next time i’m out there!
i have a confession… i am a terrible, awful cook. i burn everything. but one thing i can do is pasta, and one of my favorite spring/summer dishes is lemon pasta. i know it sounds really simple – and it is – but i’d never had it until a guy made it for me and to this day i still can’t make it as well as he did, but i’m sure you guys can.
all i really do is make pasta as i would normally (my favorite kind is angel hair pasta), and for sauce i mix together some butter, olive oil and lemon juice in a pan and drizzle on top, add some pepper and that’s it. but i was looking around online, and i think this would be amazing with some snow peas or edamame mixed in, and apparently some chopped parsley makes a great garnish :)
i found a few yummy recipes around the web if you want to try them, here, here and here.
“temari is an ancient folk art form originating in china and later introduced to japan by traveling chinese monks. first crafted as a child’s toy from remnants of old silk kimonos, temari evolved into an art form adopted by noble women in japan’s imperial society and handed down from mother to daughter.”
awesome. must learn how to do this. all of the above by julie and co.
one of our fp girls sent me these photos the other day, saying she was inspired by my vintage loves bag post last week me to make these cupcakes! she made them for the staff and customers at roosevelt field this weekend. don’t they look amazing?! i totally want to try to make some.
here’s how to make them!
buy a box of yellow cake mix and separate the batter into 6 bowls. add food coloring for red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green. fill the cupcake liners with a little bit of each color – but don’t mix the colors! and there you go… tie dye cupcakes :)
Our lingerie buyer has teamed one of our latest bralettes with items that archieve a very fashion forward demure look. We couldn’t think of a more stylish way to
channel this lingerie as outerwear trend.
Teamed with a simple tea length black skirt a leopard belt and block heels. It’s a perrrrfect transitional piece as the warmer days are slowly creeping in!
