Store Openings and Events This Weekend!

The day is finally here! We will be heading over to our brand new Philly store in a little bit for a private celebration, and the doors officially open tomorrow morning at 10am! The store is full of special touches – one thing I’m excited to see, is some of our incredibly talented fp girls painted the walls of the dressing rooms. From what I’ve seen in photos (above right), they look incredible. I also can’t wait to see the Love Letters installation, made up of all the amazing letters you guys sent us! And the necklaces pictured above were made by local jewelry designer and friend of fp, Sarah Lewis, who specially designed them to represent our Candy, Lou, Meadow and Ginger fp girls! I’ll take some photos of the store tonight so stay tuned for a peek at the store tomorrow :)

Store Style: Slip It On

This week we are featuring our variety of slips on our website – we truly do have a style for each type of girl! Slips are ideal for third piece layering – throw it on over or under your outfit to add texture and a bit of flirtiness. We asked our California fpgirls for some inspiration on how they’d style these beauties…

The fp one flock dot house slip is one of our new favorites… throw it on over a little black bodycon or a tank and shorts.

And on the right, the fp one poison pintuck slip looks super cute with a belt and tall boots!

Here’s a sweet look with the pintuck slip, cable pullover, polka dot tie turban and ankle boots.

The voile trapeze slip gets a fresh update with the western buttondown and vegan leather jacket.

Store Style: NY & LA, Part 2

Here is part two of store style featuring our lovely New York girls!

“And love won’t play any games with you
Anymore if you don’t want ’em to
The world won’t wait and I watched you shake
But honey, I don’t blame you
Hell, I still love you, New York”

Store Style: NY & LA

We can’t wait for our catalog to drop next week! In anticipation of the January book and its coast to coast theme, I thought it would be fun to check out the style of our California and New York store girls – they all have such amazing style, and you can definitely see the difference in the style of the opposite coasts. I love them both!

“Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
as the children of the sun began to awake.”

– Led Zeppelin
