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

The reverse it kachow thermal screams Cali style – and it goes with everything! Worn here, from left to right, with: the sequin cami, destroyed denim flares and marrakesh floppy hat; denim cutoffs and zigzag turban; pieced lace maxi and headband; zig zag lurex pant and headpiece; extreme flares and hat.

Store Style: Grunge

Our store girls are great at styling looks, so I was really excited to see what they’d come up with for our grunge trend. They did not disappoint!

Kassandra works in our Seattle store – located in the birthplace of grunge at its best, no wonder she rocks the trend so well :)

Here she wears skinny jeans, the imagine me graphic tee, the caldra layer pullover and plaid buttondown.

Here she pairs the imagine me graphic tee with the floral widelegs, stripe hooded cardigan and open knit beret.

For her third look she’s wearing skinny jeans, the lace buttondown over a floral tank with a leather jacket and beanie.

Store Style: Intimately FP

As I mentioned the other day, we can’t get enough of our new intimates.  We love them for lounging around the house, but we also love wearing them out – adding little touches of velvet and sparkle that are perfect this time of year.  We decided to ask our California FP girls to give us some styling inspiration on how they would wear their intimates all year round!

One of our favorites this holiday season is the beaded bandeau – it looks adorable peeking out under a plaid buttondown, worn with a lace maxi skirt!

This is such a cute layered look: the sequin cami worn with the lovebug striped thermal, victorian angel cardigan, tall socks and boots.

intimates

The dotted lace tee looks lovely with the pleated wideleg pant and a vest.

A delicate slip and sequin cami look perfect under the gorgeous long chiffon bed jacket, topped off with a headpiece.

intimates

I love this romantic outfit! The velvet extreme flares and new romantics chiffon capelet with the printed velvet bralette underneath.

intimates

Get festive for the holidays in the voile and lace slip worn over dainty shorts with knee high socks and the fairisle maxi cardigan when it gets chilly!

intimates

Perfect for a night out: the medallion seamless slip worn with a slip in a contrasting color underneath, the joe lace up boot (the new black/brown color is gorgeous), statement necklace and headpiece!

intimates

Here’s a great idea – wear a long sleeved layering tee under a cropped bralette! Add the reversible fur vest and pile on the rings and necklaces for this cool layered look.

intimates

Layering tops like the floral burnout henley are also great for taking your favorite summer tank into fall and winter!

intimates

Add a little sparkle to a tomboy look of destroyed denim and the open lace sleeve top with the sequin cami.

intimates

The long chiffon bed jacket looks amazing over the beaded bandeau and cutoffs with cute little ankle boots!

And lastly, we have the sequin cami paired with the adorable high waisted textured shorts and fairisle maxi cardigan. Love!

Store Style: Snow Angel

The latest trend we can’t get enough of is Snow Angel. With a new chilliness to the air and less hours of sunshine in the day, we’re brightening our spirits with shades of pink, ivory and icy blue and cozy, comfy textures that warm our souls. Winter doesn’t have to be about black, gray and deep tones, it can be as light and airy as the snow outside :)  This trend makes me think of sledding all day, rosy cheeks, icicles and candy canes!

Here are some of our beautiful store girls rocking the snow angel trend.

A dreamy shot… wearing the scallop strapless dress with a sweater and adorable faux fur arm warmers.

We adore the new romantics embellished romper! Worn here with the cropped cardigan and a beanie.

The embellished romper also looks awesome with the anita faux fur jacket!

Store Style: The Extreme Vintage Flares

One of our favorite fashion trends going into fall is the wideleg pant. We have several wideleg styles right now, including one of my personal favorites, the extreme vintage flares (and their new cousin, the extreme corduroy flare!). These jeans can be a little intimidating if you don’t now how to style them, and luckily our store girls are here to help out with just that! They always have great styling ideas, and these photos demonstrate our love for another trend as well – the crop top! In particular, one of our newest, cutest ones – the thermal love crop top. We love pairing wideleg bottoms with cropped tops, adding extra layers over top or underneath as the weather gets cooler.
