Post image for new website feature!

we have a new feature on our website!  now when you review an item you have the option of uploading a photo with your review!  this is a great way to see how other fp girls are wearing a product you’re thinking of purchasing, or just to share images of items you bought- click here and follow the link for the customer reviews for an example.  i personally find the reviews to be extremely helpful when i’m shopping online, so i think this is a great addition!

happy reviewing!

Hey! I know you guys love feedback, and after going through all 243 pages of the blog over winter break, I thought I'd give you guys some! I love seeing the home office and all of the employees working there. Be sure to keep us updated on the new building! Also, I'd love to see more profiles of the people actually updating the blog! It was hard to see when Pruitt stopped updating, and half the time I didn't even know who was doing it! If you guys have new writers, I would love to be informed of who is doing the blog and when the person changes. Just a few ideas! The blog is so inspiring. Keep it up.

The ruffle dress & the tutu skirt are perfect, but I wouldn't wear them nearly as often as the tee!

Post image for final jeweler bios

erica pena and melissa joy manning are the final two jewelry designers to be featured on the blog, and it makes sense to put them together as they are both female artists who create very feminine, romantic pieces that any girl would be lucky to own, and both designers also make an effort to be socially and environmentally friendly.

the inspiration behind erica pena’s first collection came from her move from manhattan to puerto rico, as she conveys this experience through jewelry that is a mix of new york’s rough edginess and the caribbean’s light airiness. her travels to places like bali continue to influence her designs and stimulate her to create unique and spiritual pieces that are chic, girly and bohemian. her travels have also influenced her to incorporate social and environmental causes into her work, and she joined with yayasan membina api cinta kasih (YAMACK), a non-profit organization in bali. one of the projects she has worked on in conjunction with this organization is building a unit/school for disabled children financed by the sales of a necklace and bracelet designed specifically for the cause.

we are very excited to be working with melissa joy manning, a US jewelry designer who creates one-of-a-kind pieces that are feminine and girly but with an edge, often mixing modern and traditional elements. she says that her jewelry “is not an accessory, but an expression… [it’s] about finding a piece that speaks to the individual and echoes their personality. i believe that jewelry can influence the way you feel; it can say and mean something different to every wearer.” the one-of-a-kind aspect of her items enhances this idea, as each piece and takes on a meaning entirely exclusive to its owner. she also uses stones believed to hold healing energy, and places tiny holes in the design of her work to allow the stone’s energy to flow through the metal and into the wearer. each piece of her jewelry is handmade in her studio in oakland, ca by an in-house production staff and using materials from only domestic suppliers. this is something melissa joy manning feels strongly about, as she pays close attention to running an environmentally responsible business.

having a real christmas tree is nice, but not everyone has the time or resources to go out and get one and haul it home.   luckily, there are plenty of DIY options out there for alternative “christmas trees” that look just as pretty and would be a really fun craft project that you can still do in time for christmas!

i love the idea of finding branches lying around outside and using them to create a very natural, earthy looking tree like this one, with some paper snowflakes for a delicate touch.

another really cool idea…suspend the branch over a table with some string and hang ornaments from it.

this awesome tree is a branch from outside, painted white and decorated with garlands and various found items like vintage potholders, crocheted doilies, cotton spools, buttons and thrift store figurines.

a neat idea, if you’re willing to nail a bunch of branches to your wall…

…or a bunch of items in the shape of a Christmas tree.

i think this might be the most creative idea of them all!

last but not least…a printable tree that you can actually download, here!

The first photo brings a lot of memories to me. Since I live in Southeast Asia, there's no pine trees to be found. Back in my teen years, we can't really buy the ones sold at the mall. So, what we did was cut up a nice looking tree branch at our backyard, wrapped it with a white crepe paper, hang a lot of cute vintage stuff on it, put smooth white stones at the base of the tree and voila, a white Christmas tree. =)
