Awesome Event in SoHo This Weekend!

Remember a little while back, we shared a guest post from one of our stores associates in Brooklyn who makes really amazing crochet vests? Well our SoHo store is having a cool event this weekend and she will be raffling off four of her beautiful creations!

Stop by the store this weekend (November 19th & 20th) and purchase a “Cozy” Product: Sweaters, Scarves, Cold, Weather, Socks, etc – and we will enter your name in the raffle to win one of the four vests! Enjoy some hot cocoa and apple cider while you shop as well :)

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!

On the left, the scallop lace tube dress with the amazing casablanca cape and faux fur arm warmers; on the right, the voile and lace slip worn with tights, legwarmers, the kimono cardigan and adorable ear flap beanie.

A perfect holiday party dress: the new romantics foiled maxi; get the goddess look by adding a head piece :)

LOVE this look: fp spun sequin knit short, tights, fp one smocked beaded bandeau, plaid shirt, beanie and arm warmers.

Here’s a thought – the embellished romper with the fp one smocked beaded bandeau over top! Accessorized with a beanie and bracelets.

Wear the sequin bodycon with the faux fur jacket, weather boots and floppy hat!

Love this pairing of embellished romper with the fairisle maxi cardigan over top!

This is a great idea – the fp one smocked beaded bandeau turned backwards, peeks out from under the lurex crochet top.

Snow Angel textures: fairisle triangle scarf, faux fur jacket, icy embellished dress, charm and chain cluster necklace, new romantics chiffon capelet.

Our much-loved voile and lace slip in all its pretty colorways.

Cambridge Crafting Party Photo Diary!

Early Saturday morning I flew to Boston for our Holiday Crafting Party at Free People Cambridge. It was such an amazing day – we were blown away by the creativity of everyone who came to the event, and it was so great to just sit around a table, talking and crafting for a few hours! Here’s a photo diary of the day :)

It was an early flight…very early… but this sunrise made it ok.

One of our crafters, Nicole, blew me away with her style and creativity! She made the following braided hat band, necklace and bracelet. And her rad printed jacket is actually a men’s shirt that she found in Africa – amazing.

One girl used the embroidery thread and tied a bunch of tiny bows that she glued to the inside of the ornament – soooo beautiful.
