For the past 10 days, bloggers from across the nation have been participating in our #FPThermalNation campaign. We took one of our favorite layering pieces – the We The Free Kyoto Cuff Thermal – and sent it out to 10 different fashion and lifestyle bloggers to see how they’d wear it. Read More
In 2006 our Senior Designer — now our Creative Director — Doub was crazy about studs and started to decorate knits with them. Read More
Here at the home office we have completely embraced the grunge trend. I think it’s the time of year, chilly weather and the upcoming holidays lend themselves to comfy layering tinged with cool grunge elements – think ripped tees, vests, cozy flannel & thermals, tights & denim and the ever-present beanie. It’s all in the details…
The tattered flag scarf looks awesome over denim and stripes.
I love how our designer paired the floral chambray overall with a delicate blouse – and I especially love that slightly tattered cuff detail!
Ruby’s got her old grunge sweater on too!
We love doc martens!
I <3 the painted distressed boot.
The striped lovebug thermal looks cute under a hoodie vest.

And not really grunge, but her nails and accessories were too good not to share!

Grunge has been on our minds. It’s the cool revival of the 90’s with an “I don’t give an F” attitude. Washed and distressed pieces – leather and studs. We’re channeling Alice Dellal and Kurt Cobain as we layer it on.
Last week we invited some blogger friends down to help us interpret the look. We piled all of our latest cutoff shorts, leather jackets, grunge tees, boots, and washed pieces into a display – letting them go at it: styling and telling us which items they liked best.
First up: Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge
Christina (pictured above in our Long Sleeved Mixed Graphic Baseball Tee, Gilded Santorini Collar, and her own jeans) took on the grunge trend effortlessly. She looks like one tough chick you wouldn’t want to mess with. Perhaps, because she already has a lot of that come as you are, carelessly sexy look you need to pull it off. The clothes wore so naturally on her, making the trend surprisingly organic and hard feeling at the same time. Below she models in our We the Free Reverse it Kachow Thermal, Denim Cutoff Shorts, and Painted Distress Boot.
After trying on and experimenting with many items, Christina tells us what her top five picks are for grunge:
Before she left we asked Christina to fill out a questionnaire for you all. Time to let her speak for herself!
A beautiful batch of facebook fan photos rocking some great looks for Fall!
Taking a leap in the embroidered mesh crop top (love the new colors of this!)
The pretty vintage lace long sleeve dress.
Lastly, I love this photo and its endless summer vibe :)
Tomorrow is the first day of September! I can’t believe fall is almost upon us. But don’t put away your favorite summer shorts, skirts or tanks just yet! You can still layer with these items going into fall and create some really cute silhouettes that are right on trend. Jemma and I worked with our videographer to make this little video showing how to style your favorite summer outfit into fall!

Look One: Layering with Maxi Skirts
Start with a skirt or similar style like the floral gauchos, one of your favorite dressy tops and heels. Add a thermal, tall boots, leather jacket and scarf to transition to fall.
Look Two: Layering with Pants
Start with any style of bottoms and a tank top and ankle boots. Add a hat, light weight cardigan and jacket to transition to fall.
Look Three: Layering with Shorts
Start with your favorite pair of shorts, summery blouse and boots. Add tights, a loose knit and hat to transition to fall.
Which look is your favorite?
Did you feel it? I felt it…
The chill in the air this morning. No, summer is not over just yet, but fall is definitely creeping in. And that means time to break out the thermals.
FP thermals are my favorite – they always fit perfectly, come in the best colors, and best of all they always have something unique either in the shape or the detailing, that sets them apart and makes them interesting. We have several thermal styles right now so we thought we’d have a little fun and make a video showing different ways to style thermals! They can be worn with shorts (and tights in fall!), skinny jeans, widelegs, tea-length skirts, you name it. Check out the video, which features some of our lovely home office gals!

Under the thermals each girl is wearing one of our seamless intimates.
Shop all fp thermals!
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.
