Post image for home sweet home – episode 2 preview!

for the second episode of home sweet home we paid a visit to one of our most inspirational fp girls – our creative director.  now, before we went to her place i was told what it looked like, but if i hadn’t known i’m sure i would have thought we were lost when we pulled up out front.  she lives in a large, renovated garage that it is by far one of the coolest spaces i have ever seen.   like a geode, it appears a little rough on the outside but crack it open and the beauty inside will take your breath away…i could have spent an entire day exploring the treasures that abound throughout her home – it is full of trinkets that she has picked up throughout her travels and i can only imagine the stories that lie behind each tiny detail.

in her words…

“i always love places that are not so pretty on the outside. i like to surprise people with the interiors. don’t judge a book by its cover.

when i was little my father lived in key west, florida. i went to visit him and was surprised to see his house was hardly painted and looked kind of haunted. i said, “daddy! you live here!?” and then when he brought me inside it was quite nice. he told me back in the day it was a way to deter the tax collectors from knocking on your door. so now i just surprise my friends and they say the same thing – “you live here!?”

what sold her on this place?

“it was the big cast iron beams! i saw great potential in the ceiling.”

it took quite a bit of work to transform the space into what it is now – and lucky for us, she has pictures of the progress. read on for many more photos, and stay tuned for the video coming later today!

WOW, that is truly awesome, I would love to live in a garage especially that one, I have seen some really cool places to live in my time but I think that tops it all. Having the ability to park your car in front of the T.V has always been a dream of mine. Thanks for sharing this.

how to layer

Post image for how to layer

we have a really great new feature on our website- when you go to our layering section, you’ll see artwork that gives ideas on how to layer a certain item!  right now check out all the cute ways to layer the raw seamed corset, and make sure you keep coming back for new ideas as the artwork will change from time to time :)

Nichole -May 30, 2013, 2:19AM
That is not a corset, it is simply a seamed tank top. Even if it laces up in the back it is not a corset because it has no boning in it and does not bring in the waist at all.

A Music Monday

Post image for A Music Monday

26th April Phoenix live @ the Constitution Hall. We headed there straight after work. A road trip from Philly to Washington to go and see a band that I’ve been lusting over for quite some time now – Phoenix.

An amazing soundtrack was played while driving there as my eyes striped the America land passing by. America is new to me so it doesn’t take much to intrigue me eyes. Both sight and sound senses were tickled during this trip.

Washington is a nice place full of profoundness. The Venue where Phoenix was playing ( DAR Constitution Hall) was to, a place of great character.

We were second row from the front which equals great photo opportunity; I could almost smell Thomas Mars!!!

 They played a number of my favorite songs including 1901 and Too Young, which I was reminded, was played in the film Lost in Translation and Shallow Hal

 The atmosphere was great and I had a blast, not bad for a Monday night, work night.

 IMG_0240Untitled-3

The evening finished with everyone being invited onto the stage, yes that’s right the entire hall was crawling forward to join them on the stage.

Phoenix sure knows how to make their fans happy!!!

Stay tuned for more free people gig reviews in the future we plan to go to many during the summer months.

I saw them April 22nd in Louisville! Basically the same setlist, as I hurried to get one too! Then we met the guys! They were super type French and super type awesome! There were a few bros that turned into Humbledbros when they met the lead singer. Tooooo cute.

Wow! When I was creating my inspiration board for the concept internship, I almost used the same picture of Brooke Shields in the Blue Lagoon that you posted! It ended up not fitting in with the composition but it's such a cool coincidence nonetheless! :D

Post image for tunesday: the national

of all the albums coming out this year one of the ones i am most excited about is the national’s high violet. as far as i’m concerned this band can do no wrong – especially led by frontman matt berninger, who’s deep baritone and blue-eyed, sandy-haired good looks are enough to make any girl swoon.  i’ve always been fascinated by him, because he’s very private and actually terrified of being on stage, but you’d never know it when you see him perform. their music is slightly melancholy and a good listen when you’re feeling down – and the lyrics are sometimes deeply personal – but i’ve seen them play live and they can rock out and get you dancing during songs like “secret meeting.”  their new album comes out may 11th but you can actually stream the entire thing now at nytimes.com.  i just listened and now i am itching to get my hands on a copy – it sounds amazing.

i also definitely recommend checking out the documentary about them filmed by vincent moon of la blogotheque, called “a skin, a night.” it’s really beautifully done. in fact, the first music video moon ever filmed was the national’s “daughters of the soho riots,” one of my favorite songs. check it out:

now listen to a couple of their new songs that i’m really digging…

That's a great playlist!! The Daredevil Christopher Wright is an awesome band.. from Wisconsin too so all the better! Another band from Wisconsin: Trapper Schoepp and The Shades. They're from Milwaukee and they're one of the best bands around. Check 'em out and maybe feature them in a playlist?.. P.s. This blog is beautiful. :)

A festival wrap up

Post image for A festival wrap up

blog152sized

It’s been 1 week since we’ve been back from Coachella and I am having massive withdrawal symptoms.  I’ve been shifting through my pictures and reminiscing almost every day.

One thing’s for sure the music was insane and fueled a lot of inspirational thought, from fashion to feeling.

These are some bands I am aspiring to at the moment. Individualism makes me tick and these guys sure have it.

Coachella has been a blast for us and we’re hoping these become a more frequent topic of conversation on the blog. Anyone going to upcoming festivals, we’d love to know?

fp julia -May 17, 2010, 6:11PM
hi samantha! you're welcome, thanks for sharing them :) we will be at bonnaroo too!!! keep an eye out for us there....
Samantha -May 17, 2010, 5:57PM
first of all THANKS for posting 2 of my Coachella pictures! That was awesome to see, & coachella was absolutely AMAZING. Some of my favorites were Passion PIt, Phoenix, Bassnectar, Deadmau5 and MGMT. I'm also going to Bonnarroo in less than a month. I'll send in pictures! xxx

a reader sent me the link to these beautiful photos taken by katie stoops, using some of our clothing! i love the outdoor setting of the photos but i think my favorites are the close-ups because they really show the beautiful details of some of our pieces. check out more of katie’s work here.

the free people items pictured are the stitched boho tank, embellished tube dress, lacey insets dress, ends in sequins dress.

speaking of details
