Christmas Lights From Around The World

 Lights from Barcelona

Every year I look forward to cities turning on their Christmas lights. It makes me feel all festive and happy and brings a coating of magic over the streets. For me, it kicks off Christmas and puts an extra bit of enjoyment to going out and shopping for gifts, and relieves some of the stress. Read More

Lazy Afternoon

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!! I thought I’d share a few photos from my weekend, I couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing and fun couple of days with family and friends.

Best gift? My dad saw here on the blog that I wanted a vintage camera strap, so he gave me his old one that he has had for years :)

Also really loving this book of photography by Linda McCartney – it begins with her life as a rock photojournalist who was house photographer at the Fillmore East and photographed legends like the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Doors, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, before meeting and falling in love with Paul McCartney.  Paging through the book is literally like a glimpse into her life as she saw it through her camera lens – really beautiful.

What was the best part of your holiday this year? I’d love to hear about it :)

From Our Store Girls: The Perfect Gifts

It’s the season for giving gifts, and we just launched our Holiday Boutiques last week full of great gift ideas. It can be a little overwhelming when it comes to picking out the perfect present, so we decided to ask our store ladies across the country what would be on their wishlist this year!

Haley, Farmington CT: Socks!

“I just bought both colors of the broken arrow soft socks! And i know once my sisters see them they’ll want them too, so I think they are the perfect gift/stocking stuffer!”

(I have to agree, I am wearing these socks today and they are the BEST.)

Brandi, Shrewsbury NJ: Bralettes

“Our bralettes are the best FP gift for the holiday season – they are the perfect add-on to any outfit for a pop of print or a dash of sparkle!”

Brooke, Tyson’s Corner VA: Multi Stripe Pullover, Lace Buttondown, Feather Hair Clip

“I love the idea of these three pieces as a gift together – each item is really unique and versatile or can be worn on its own; the pullover sweater with a pair of denim shorts and tights, the lace buttondown with a beautiful black skirt and the feather clip on any day of the week. But the beautiful thing is that if someone wanted to put a look together as a gift all of these items would look amazing put together.”

Raven, Atlanta GA: The Ruffle Legging

“The ruffle leggings are fun, funky and sexy! I think every lady should rock a pair of these.”

Morgan, Portland OR: Stockings for your stockings!

Socks are a great way to help your loved ones stay cozy this holiday season! Socks are one of life’s often over-looked luxuries that many don’t often splurge on for themselves.  Such an easy way to feel pampered and spoiled! Plus, sizing is usually not an issue :) ”

Niree, Hollywood CA:

“In the top photo I’m wearing our Faux Sheepskin Earmuffs and gloves – they are the best stocking stuffers and make great gifts, especially as it gets colder!

The second photo are my top gift giving picks! They include the Voile and Lace Slip, Floral Kimono, the MUST HAVE Miles of Lace Dress, the amazing Crafty Cuff Thermal in mustard, Legwarmers, Feather Hair Clips, the Chain Double Wrap Belt and an amazing Scarf. You can’t go wrong with any of these items!!!”
