fp fashion at coachella!

even though we didn’t get to go to coachella this year, we were still there in spirit, and in the form of these lovely ladies rocking free people at the festival!

i am in love with this look! our eyelet crop top looks amazing with a printed skirt, and bare feet are a bonus :)

left – our runaway lace kaftan is perfect for the beach or festivals; right – head to toe fp in the directions in lace maxi skirt and fp-1 bralette from our holiday book.


lovely lace! the dress on the left is a january item that’s currently unavailable but we will be getting more in june! the maxi on the right is a may catalog item – it has arrived in some of our stores and should be online soon :)


cute skirts and dresses look awesome paired with converse kicks.


this is one of my fave fp tops ever – i wore it all last summer! love how it looks with the polka dot shorts.

a bag for coachella

who’s going to coachella this weekend?! unfortunately we aren’t going this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the mindset… here’s a look at what i would bring if i were heading to coachella…

i drew most of my inspiration from the two outfits pictured above.  the outfit at far right is PERFECT- our little plaid cropped bralettes can be worn on their own, over a tank, or under some cute overalls like the puddle jumper romper! add the romana fest sandal and gorgeous rio brillante bag to complete the look. then the next day, wear it with some bright blue cutoff shorts and the embroidered mesh crop top like sasha pivovarova from our april catalog :)

packing lightly and being able to mix and match is key for music festivals – the sophia bikini top would look great with the overalls or just with the cutoffs as well! i would also bring a scarf to either sit on or cover up my hair, which would surely be a mess after dancing in the hot sun all day and into the night. the feather straw fedora and sunglasses would also be in my bag to keep the california sun out of my eyes. and in addition to the sandals i’d bring along some comfy kicks like the muddy waters sneakers.

when i’m at a festival, sometimes i don’t want to worry about carrying a bag so the artists and revolutionaries fanny pack would be ideal, and would hold my small journal and some sunblock. and i’m loving these candy-colored shades of nail polish by chanel! finally, i’m obsessed with the bag charms by the 2 bandits and the cute saba feather clips (on the straw hat and in sasha’s hair above)! clip ’em to your bag, hat, belt loop or right into your hair! the perfect festival accessory.

those are my picks,  click here to go to our festival shop for more inspiration :)
