Thank you to Bloesem for intoducing me to the work of Margo Slinger. You have to check out her website of work. It is so clever and funny and beautiful. All of the buttons on her website are little vintage buttons (an one silly rabbit?). The navigation is a little tricky, and it’s easy to get lost in Slingerland, but so much fun…
The girls at the home office were inspired by the gods to declare last Friday, Mustache Friday. Check out the pics…
The girls at our King of Prussia store hosted a party last week to celebrate their 2 year anniversary. Happy birthday KOP! Here’s a pic of a few of the shop girls sporting their FP face paint.
Our stylists put together some pretty involved outfits on our website. We kept getting questions like “what are those shoes the model is wearing?” or “I can’t find those earrings…” So we created a function to help you find everything else that is styled with a particular item. Like the image above, for instance, is for the FP Super Flare Trouser. But the model is wearing lots of other things. So click on the little T-shirt icon that says “what else is she wearing?”…
…and Voila! Now you know!
Loveforever posted this photo from our catalog on both her blog and her inspiration board. But, she also questioned, is this lace or lace wallpaper? I had no idea, so I asked the catalog team. They said it was wallpaper, and that it looked so real, it even tricked your eyes when you were standing right in front of it. It was in the bathroom of this amazing house they shot at in London…
So we received this anonymous comment on one of the August catalog postings…
“I think you guys should do a write up in the blog on how to tie scarves! There are so many new beautiful scarves in stock now and there put on the models in such a neat way, I would love to know how its done.”
What a great idea! Some girls from our creative team made this little video for you, with one of our web stylists showin how it’s done. Enjoy!
We got a comment asking for more of the watercolors from the catalog. Most of them have been chopped up at this point, but here is one more that is still in tact. Enjoy!
Check out our newest store opening on Monday in Austin, Texas! Here’s where to find it…

We don’t have any good pictures yet because of construction, but I’ll post some soon! This rendering is from our architects…
hayley was blue.

violet hair, violet velvet maxi coat, and violet eyelashes.
betty was yellow.
yellow trench, yellow sunglasses, and yellow canary
feathers in her yellow hair.
the decade that swung.
never knowin what was to come.
i felt alive in these frocks.
all dolled up for a swingin’ party.
walkin down london streets
skippin to the beats.
mini skirts, mini cars
big life and bright stars.
young, fancy, free
my heart belonged to biba,
but my love belonged to me
