Fancy some of the very best people watching LA has to offer? Put this in your calendar. The second Sunday of every month, up to 20,000 people roll in to shop and sort the 2,500 booths of vintage, furniture, antiques, textiles (and much more) of the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Designers, celebrities, stylists, interior decorators… LA’s creatives flock to this (said to be the largest) market once a month, each with their own unique eye for what they are looking to bring home. Me? I prefer to sit in an old vintage recliner, coffee in hand, sunglasses snug and tight… and let the beautiful eclectic people watching begin. Ok, and a chunky piece of turquoise. Come find me next time for a chat will you? Read More

Capture the moment and it will stay with you forever — that’s exactly what we did at Coachella. We gave a selected few the opportunity to document Coachella through their very own eyes for our blog!

What happens when you put two insanely talented and beautiful women together? This shoot…featuring the designer behind Heyoka Leather — Leslie Crow — and shot by photographer Alexandra Valenti (who shot our July ’11 book). I can’t stop looking at these images — they are works of art! Read More

I first discovered Gemma’s blog Fade to Black over a year ago, and fell instantly in love with her style and everything she posts. We’ve emailed each other frequently, but finally the other day we got to meet in person when she came down to our office, or as she calls it, fairy land, for a quick little visit. I asked her to fill out one of our style file questionnaires, and she cracked me up as she did. Get to know a little bit more about Gemma, FP style!
Gemma is also quite a talented artist! Here are a few more photos from her blog…
