i really love rompers right now. i definitely want to get a couple and will probably live in them all summer! i was thinking about these special pieces and wondering about when they first came to be… thought i’d share the little history with you.
rompers first became popular in the 1950s as beach/lounge wear! as the trend caught on, designers dressed them up a little so they could also be worn in more formal occasions too.
now, they’re everything from cute, casual, dressy, beachy, and everything in between.
they’re just a great look – and another reason i cannot wait for spring :)

this is such an amazing idea – i saw it on design*sponge a while ago and i’ve always thought about doing it, except i don’t have a dresser like that :) the flowers remind me so much of our one of a kind vintage flower necklace!
for their tutorial, they used some vintage brooches found on ebay, removed the backs and glued screws on. check out the full tutorial here!
such a great way to give your dresser a little free people touch :)
We are featured as one of the best places to work, Which is pretty exciting!!!
I got shown this book today “I Wish I Worked There!” It’s a very cool book by Kursty Groves co founder of Headspace and www.spacehopper.com and Will Knight the founder of Brew, a London and New York based creative collective.
The book reveals some of the world’s most inspiring workplaces and we are in there!
Here’s an excerpt
“An environment that appeals to their imagination and encourages them to explore…
“The Philosophy has fuelled a multitude of creative solutions and whimsical additions to the working environment over and above the restoration and preservation of the buildings themselves. An acid bath is transformed into a fern garden, former wood columns become grand staircases, and an abandoned decompression chamber has a new life as a sculptural piece between buildings”
This book is great – Google’s and Innocent work space looks pretty fun too, but i think we give them a run for their money!

well everyone, march is finally here- which means spring officially starts this month! i am so ready for warmth and sunshine and leaves and flowers…and in that spirit, i made a little mix of music that feels happy and springlike and is brightening my spirits a little bit. hope you like it!
the first music festival of the season is just a couple of weeks away! this year a couple of our fp girls heading down to austin for SXSW and we’re going to be bringing you the SXSW experience …fp style!
i thought for tunesday today i’d feature one of their must-see bands for this year, white denim! they saw this garage/experimental rock trio perform last year and loved them, so they can’t wait to check them out again this year. white denim is also a hometown favorite, being from austin. they’ll be playing this year at emo’s annex, thursday march 18 at 1:00am.
i just listened to their album “fits,” released in october of ’09, and was really impressed- and supposedly they put on a sick live show.
listen to a couple of their songs and let me know what you think!
