What’s The Best Gift You’ve Ever Given?

I love giving gifts; I love the surprise of a gift and the smile that fills the person you’re giving it to. That’s why Christmas and birthdays are some of my favorite occasions. Whether it’s something small or something more extravagant, it’s always a lovely gesture to give someone a gift. The gifts I love the most are the smallest ones and the most thoughtful. I have received so many gifts throughout my years that I cherish so much, but there’s one that holds on to my heart. Read More

On Our Wishlist

Being surrounded by amazing fashion all day at work, it can be a little overwhelming at times.  I’ll often find myself up in our studio, browsing through the racks, or in meetings, staring longingly at all the upcoming designs and samples hanging on the walls, wishing I could own them all.  With Chanukah upon us and Christmas in just a few days, Jemma, Naomi and I each narrowed it down to a few select items that are on our wishlist this year.

Naomi’s Wishlist

Glitter Mesh Longsleeve Layering Top in Gold – I’ve had my eye on this top for a bit. I love how it’s a regular crew neck tee, but it’s sheer and glittery. I want to juxtapose it’s sparkleyness with some sportswear-ish styling. Since it’s sheer, you can take advantage of that and layer a tank bra or racerback underneath. My inspiration comes from here and here.

Perfume Amulet Necklace – I love the hammered nail form of this necklace. I want to layer it on with mixed metals and necklaces of varying length – something like this. It’s also made from recycled metal which is always a feel good plus.

Lora Cutout Wedges – I’m such a wedge girl – they’re so much more stable and comfortable than regular heels. I can’t get enough of the sweet pattern and ethnic feel of these babies. The stripe up the back and triangle cutouts make them a must have. It’s nice how they’re statement shoes, yet pretty neutral at the same time. I would definitely style them with skinnies to let them shine, but I think you could wear any range of styles on top.

Jemma’s Wishlist

Throughout the holidays I like to feel comfortable with a bit of sass!  The items I’ve chosen make for the day but also can be carried into the evening.

I like to live in jeans a lot and the new vintage washed straight leg thrift jeans are a new move away from my usual skinny jean I opt for. I’d team them with the vegan leather button down shirt to give them an edge and for extra comfort I’d throw this unique fashion sweater kimono over the top. Come the evening I’d put on these Jazzy studded loafers and I’m ready to go to the local bar.

My holiday wishlist is all about comfort with an edge.

Items:  Vegan Leather Button Down Shirt, Vintage Thrift Washed Straight Leg Jean, Kimono Solid Sweater, Hardware Loafer

Vegan 3 Eye Gibson Shoe – I’ve been wanting a pair of doc martens for a while now, and I think I’ve found “the one.” These would go with absolutely everything, and I love that the oxford style as opposed to boots.

We The Free Reverse It Kachow Thermal – Two shirts in one, need I say more?! I love the wash on this thermal and it’s incredibly soft and easy – idea for Christmas morning, or a casual night out.

Tanner Shoulder Bag – This bag reminds me of an older FP bag that I have had for a while now, and have loved to bits – literally.  I can no longer justify using it as my carry-on every time I travel, so I think this is a perfect replacement. I like bags that are brown or neutral in color so they go with everything!
