Post image for Taking the boy approach

I’m addicted to street style sites; I find them ever so inspiring when it comes to putting together
fresh new looks.

Lately I have been seeing a lot of brogues on girls adopting that Annie Hall
sophisticated tomboy vibe. I like this look going into spring but I’m not sure which way I’d
prefer to take it – do I give my feminine outfit that little bit of attitude or do I go for the full blown tomboy
look, teaming it with denim skinny jeans and shirts?! Either way I think it rocks!

How would you guys wear them?

I love wearing mine with rolled skinny jeans and striped sweaters, too, like this: Though now that Summer's coming it'll be t-shirts and tops. Don't really consider it the "boy approach" though, since I mostly wear flat shoes of some sort, ha ha.

I LOVE wearing skinny jeans and a top! It's comfy, cute and always a great go-to. Sometimes when no heels are wanted it's fun to do the "boy look"!

Post image for reading terminal

i grew up in the city for the earlier part of my childhood, and i’ve always felt really fortunate to have that experience. we lived at the end of a quaint, tree-lined street where everyone knew each other, us kids all played together, and block parties were a common occurrence. i took art classes (and went sledding) at the museum of art, loved riding what i called “accordion buses” and playing at cherry street park, and regularly went shopping at reading terminal. i can’t say that i always loved going there, as it was typically a crowded weekend day, but it always seemed so full of activity and excitement, and of course, delicious food.

it was recently named one of the top ten public markets in all of the united states, so i thought i’d take a trip down memory lane and visit for the first time in years to take some photos.





























reading terminal is located on 12th street between market and arch in philadelphia – check out the website here.

Costa Rican Tarrazú. That's my favorite coffee. I didn't know we exported that! :)

These shots look amazing...I can't say we have anything like that here in Chicago. Food, stuff, fresh vegetables all in one place. Amazing.

Post image for then & now

a little over a year ago one of our fp girls adopted a sweet little bull mastiff puppy named jazmyn…you may remember, i posted some photos of her back then:


jazmyn doesn’t come to work with her mom because she’s got a little too much energy to sit at her desk all day, but she came in today to say hello and look how much she’s grown!!




such a pretty girl :)

Amélie -Mar 27, 2011, 5:59PM
Love the blurry tail on the second to last pic. Happy puppy!
cornelia -Mar 25, 2011, 8:00PM
I have a fawn english mastiff! such great dogs!

Everyone loves engineered prints here at the office teamed with cute crop tops. Check out one of our designers look in the video below –

She has worked this trend into a look that’s totally her own. I love how she has made a vintage skirt into a modern fresh outfit and her ring is to die for!!!

The crop top and shoes are free people check them out here.

platform boot  buttonfront crop top

Post image for we love marais shoes


marais USA was founded in 2007 by two parsons school of design students named catherine chen and haley boyd.  while in school they both worked as waitresses around new york city and throughout their college years of shoe shopping in the city, found a need for simple but fashionable shoe styles that were still affordable. from this discovery their company was born, and they now work in brooklyn designing “essential” shoes for girls like them, who want to be stylish but don’t want to break the bank. their inspiration comes from a summer spent in le marais, the eclectic paris neighborhood known for its shopping, where there is “literally something for everyone” – a philosophy that holds true for their company as well.


le marais, paris

it’s fitting that the three shoe styles we’re carrying right now from marais are each completely different, too. i took some inspiration from their website, where they feature four very different “marais girls,” and found three very different gals here at our office who each loved a different pair of their shoes!

i made a collage for each one of them using images they keep around their desks as inspiration –you can see how different their styles are just looking at these images…




find them on our website: gladiator sandal; peeptoe espadrille bootie; maryjane bow flat

Jenny -Mar 24, 2011, 4:56PM
I need those gladiator sandals!!! Also the pictures in a picture is pretty awesome.
haley -Mar 24, 2011, 3:07PM
we love it!! xx marais usa

Your store is just amazing. I was wondering where you got those coffee tables. They are amazing. I could just live in the store it's so nice and the crew is super sweet. Will for sure spend a lot of time there.
Monie -Mar 25, 2011, 1:37AM
Thanks for opening one in SJ!!!! =] I <3 FP! I was sad that I couldn't attend the grand opening last week, but I had a chance to check it out this evening. Everything was perfect like always when I step into the boutique. It's like walking into a craft/art festival. I love the brick flooring right in front of the store. =)

Felicia -Mar 26, 2011, 3:18AM
I beg with my heart and soul that you PLEASE open up a store in South Florida! It would be a great opportunity, as the economy is getting back on track and there are many FP fans here! I'm not sure if this has been considered, but if so, please do let me know. Thanks :) Felicia
