one potato, two potato…

…three potato four.

i never heard of it until our graphic designer mentioned it as one of her favorite vintage stores, where she finds some of the awesome stuff in her home.

then today i was getting coffee and saw a flyer for a barn sale the store is holding this weekend and i checked out the website… now i know one thing i’m doing saturday!

the shop is full of hand-picked vintage treasures ranging from books, signs, glass bottles and mugs to blankets, furniture and other various oddities.  plus it’s owned by a sweet married couple with two adorable little kids :)  check out their blog too, where they post shop updates and cute family photos.



this is the first barn sale they’re holding – as a change from having normal hours, they will have one of these every month. check out their website for more info!

friday cuteness

one of our fp girls out on the west coast sent me these adorable photos that i had to share…

our so-cal DVM had a day at her daughter’s school called “occupation celebration” where she talked to the kids about her awesome job at FP  – she dressed up the girls like mannequins and chatted all about being a district visual manager – how cute?!

and this is claude, a new pup belonging to our visual manager on the west coast! above is claude as an itty bitty pup, and here is is on his first fp store visit, in santa monica:



this is just too much…i need a puppy!!!

snow city







winter strikes again… a little over a foot fell in the city and i went for a little walk this morning and took some photos before beginning the trek down to the navy yard.  i actually love the brief period of time after a large snowfall when everything is blanketed in white and the snow muffles the usual sounds of the city, creating a peaceful lull.  people even seem to say hi on the street more often, offering a warm smile of commiseration for others out shoveling or trudging through snow up to their knees.

but don’t get me wrong, i am more than ready for spring! enough of this nonsense :)

NYC photo diary

i mentioned last week that i was lucky enough to be able to go to our april catalog shoot in nyc… well here is a little visual diary of the trip!

on the train ride up i could barely contain my excitement for the day ahead…

we shot in milk studios, an amazing warehouse-like space in the meatpacking district.



this was my first time attending a catalog shoot, and i just wanted to soak in every detail.


multi-tasking :)


shoes lined up and ready to go.


our creative director, doub, chats with photographer guy aroch.


the fp crew, pre shooting.


a beautiful day in nyc!

chez miss pandora

ever wish you could take a peek inside the home of a fashion blogger? i always imagine what their homes look like, what they surround themselves with and what inspires them – the way people decorate their place is so indicative of their personality – i love checking out peoples’ music and book collections in particular :)

our stylists snapped some photos at louise ebel’s home in paris and isn’t it charming? i love the little knick knacks everywhere – you can tell she’s a sentimental person who holds on to gifts, treasured items and dried flowers, which i love! i’m the same way.









behind the scenes – january lookbook

in order to capture the magical feel of paris for our january lookbook, our stylists returned to the city to shoot it with french blogger louise ebel, also known as miss pandora! a parisian beauty with striking red hair and eclectic style, she wears the clothes from our january book perfectly. here are some shots of our stylists in paris, and behind the scenes of the lookbook shoot, which was photographed by louise’s friend chloé le drezen who often takes the photos for her blog.

in the mix

it’s a miserable day in philly and after thawing my car out of a block of ice i am stealing the energy and warmth of these behind the scenes pictures from our latest special shoot.  the shoot was for the mixed print trend on our website right now – we love how fresh this trend feels going into spring. to get the amazing special shots our team went to the home of our creative director, which they turned into a bohemian lounge full of rich prints and bold colors. looking at these photos (taken by our talented videographer) my breath was taken away…they look like they’re in a caravan on their way to a festival… with puppies of course :)

p.s. don’t you just want to curl up in some blankets with a book and a warm puppy now?
