Please let me know if you're looking for a author for your weblog. You have some really great articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an email if interested. Thanks!

cherry pasta?

Post image for cherry pasta?

who would think to put cherries in pasta? this sounds like the perfect end of summer/start of fall dish.

  • 1 serving udon noodles
  • 1 T evoo, plus more for sautéing
  • 1/3 c sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/3 c white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 c arugula
  • a few cherries, quartered
  • 2-3 T chopped walnuts
  • a few fresh basil leaves
  • grated parmesan

1) Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil in saucepan.  Boil for 5 minutes to reduce; remove from heat and let cool 5 to 10 minutes, until it thickens.  [You’re making a balsamic reduction.]

2) Sauté onion over medium heat until browned.  Add arugula and sauté until wilted.

3) Cook udon noodles according to package directions.  Drain and return to pot.

4) Toss noodles with olive oil, onion, arugula, cherries, and walnuts.  Transfer to plate; drizzle with balsamic reduction.  Garnish with basil and parmesan, if desired.

AH where can i get those little black booties on the right!?!?
Maria -Sep 26, 2010, 5:06PM
I wish my Friday's looked like that! I have a question about look 4 from the lookbook on the FP website-- I know the jacket/vest is from the Muubaa Convertible Leather Trench Coat, but where can a girl on a budget find something like that?? Would free people make that piece as a separate?! The whole jacket is fabulous and with so many wearable options, well worth the price, just not in my price range...Thank you!!

Post image for Abbey Lee wearing our Solid Chiffion Skirt

Abbey Lee was caught off duty wearing our chiffon maxi skirt that was also featured in our changing rooms video.

Her high low jumper and metallic bronze jacket compliments the look, very Star Trek esque.

Her style is great !

Post image for how to style: the lace mock neck top!

more styling inspiration for you today! we had our stylists demonstrate four ways to wear the lace mock neck top – one of our favorite layering pieces for fall and winter. featuring our lovely web merchandiser as model :)

look one:

101_4025

the lace mock neck adds a touch of sexiness to a casual look of jeans and a plaid button down. i love how our stylists layered two plaid shirts to get a mix of prints! perfect the look with a pair of rad platforms :)

in this look: lace mock neck top; levi’s 606 painted skinny; trimmed in gingham shirt; ever plaid shirt; wani slouch knee sock; miramar straps platform.

look two:
101_4048
101_4053
101_4054
101_4049

still want to wear your spring and summer dresses in fall and winter? just layer the lace mock neck underneath and add some tall socks and heels!

in this look: lace mock neck top; aran sheer tall cable sock; ballet platform; egyptian printed bodycon dress; ring coming soon.

look three:
101_4067
101_4068
101_4083
101_4082
101_4080
101_4091

this look was all of our favorites :) pair the lace mock neck with a maxi skirt, tee and biker boots for the ultimate casual cool outfit.  isn’t that necklace amazing too?

in this look: lace mock neck top; cp shades plaid maxi skirt; we the free graphic a-line tee; CP Shades Clothingsport stripe slouch sock; brit boot (no longer avail.); grecian circle ring; metal leaf ring; necklace coming soon.

look four:
101_4098
101_4099
101_4110
101_4106
101_4103

the last look is all about the layers – a lace maxi dress over the mock neck top, the striped tee to dress it down a little, a tweed jacket and over-the-knee boots! she looks amazing.

in this look: lace mock neck top; daughters of the revolution lace maxi dress; we the free gathered stripes top; tweed jacket; joe lace up over the knee boot; ring coming soon.

thanks ladies!

Post image for An errie sky and the harvest moon

Did you guys see the beautiful sky last night?

I have never experienced the Harvest moon before, and it was pretty magical.

After work last night I had a little test drive in the parking lot and had to push the break down to capture the magnificent sky that I could see through the side mirror, a deep orange glow bursting through soft grey clouds deserved to be captured on the i-phone to be kept safe in the nostalgic folder.

I wished I was laying in a corn field last night, way out in the middle of nowhere to dwell on the full evening but a crazy storm blew into Philly and swallowed up the view of the harvest moon.

However the early evening was pretty incredible!
