america continues to inspire and enchant.
since i last wrote, my friends and i were in virginia. our next stop was asheville, nc. this is rebel, my backseat travel companion.

our blue ridge mt morning was unbelievable.

from there, we ended up in new orleans. thanks to aforementioned cat, we got a sweet pet-friendly hotel room just outside the french quarter.

and then…we hit austin. and while we were at dinner, my friend spotted an aspiring designer – christie – who was wearing one of our knit tops. she loves fp, and i appreciate that she let me take her pic for the blog. :)

Heh, your backseat companion looks scared. Or maybe that's just a wide eyed cat thing. I have two cats and I can't even get them to stay in the house, much less a back seat. Cool cat!

I'm so jealous of your road trip adventures! i'm itching to plan one now :)

monday quote

“the art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.”
- charles langbridge morgan

i absolutely love this quote, i think i'm going to make a mural of it on my wall ;D

what’s the story?

before my friends’ and my spiritual reading (!), we decided to get some breakfast…i haven’t been to morning glory in a long, long time. but it’s just as good every time i go. this was our server…kind of a character, but super nice.

close-up of my southern frittata – incredible. full of sausage and okra and goodness knows what…

and look at – even a straight-up scrambled egg looks delicous. (the biscuits are killer)

unicorn diaries

i am in love with this blog – the unicorn diaries.

totally satisfies my sweet tooth…

That's a very interesting blog. It reminds me of another blog, My Milk Toof. Though they are different in content, they have the same way of expressing their creative juices on their brains, which is very awesome.

copy – desert

luren, who used to work for our store display team, is curating a show at copy gallery
it’s called desert. and it will probably leave you thirsty for more…
sorry, that sounds silly.
if you’re in philly, make it part of your first friday festivities. there, that’s better…
artists from philadelphia and los angeles are creating sculptures inspired by plants and structures of the desert using commonly found materials.

copy gallery, 319 n 11th st. 3rd floor. 6-11pm.

roadtripping

hi all…
this is the first chance i’ve had to post some pix…as of tonight, i am in tuscaloosa, alabama. it has been absolutely incredible thus far; i am already planning my next road trip. but anyway…just a few images to share.
first, waiting for my ride on my porch. wearing some sweet converse that i think are going on sale in the october catalog…not an advertisement for ‘em, but they look great with everything. :)

our first (and maybe only) toll booth operator…definitely has the most coiffed ‘do i’ve ever seen in one of those booths.

this is on the road in virginia…reminded me of maxfield parrish or something…
trip3.jpg
we capped off our first night in harrisonburg, va…where they served some of the best bar food i ever ate – this is a gouda grilled cheese from the blue nile.

more later…hope everyone’s happy. :)

forgive me…this poll was created a few days early (b/c of my road trip) so i don’t have the results for last week’s poll…but, if you’re curious, you can look at edition 61 and find out what tight/sock was your favorite.
this week, we wanted to know what you thought about these shirt/dress/skirts! we love convertibility and versatility these days; hoping you do, as well. but which do you like the best?
the graphic cutout ponte dress

the color block tank dress

the flirty organza dress

or, the two timing mini dress…

thank you!!
