The Elements — believed to mirror the most essential foundations on which all matter is built; Earth, Fire, Air, Water (not pictured here)… and what I like to think of as the fifth element, Spirit. The fifth element (in both Buddhism and Hinduism) is said to represent that which is beyond the physical or material. The Spirit goes far beyond our grasping or understanding in a scientific matter, extending to a realm that cannot be measured or quantified. Read More

I took so many photos of this one wall in our Philly store, I felt like I needed to give it its own post. There was so much to look at, it took my breath away. Artwork, potted plants, memorabilia from around the world had my eyes darting back and forth, snapping away with my camera trying to capture it all. One of the coolest parts? Some of the artwork is actually for sale!
Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia. We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place. If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!

The upstairs fitting room area is cozy and tranquil – I literally could live here. The fitting rooms were painted by five of our amazing fp girls, who made them truly special and unique.

How amazing are the patchwork rugs?! A great DIY project, perhaps…
I adore the brick wall and necklaces hanging from nails – I bought one of these zodiac necklaces – you can only find them in our stores! I also love the falling whistles.
Former Belle put on an awesome show!
It was such a magical night. Stay tuned for another post, on two of my favorite parts of the store!
