On Trend: Textured Florals


The floral trend is certainly here to stay, and this season we saw many iterations of the pretty pattern taking on an even more pronounced form by way of ultra textured finishes and bold embellishments.

Backstage at Chanel S/S 2013

Dries van Noten worked the textured floral in intricate, rose-adorned midi skirts and spring jackets.

Chloé debuted a super-cute floral detailing across chic separates. We’re loving that divine mustard trouser with floral appliqué accents down one pant leg.

Karl Lagerfeld brought his simple flower prints to life via intricate beading in rich, vivid hues at Chanel.

Phillip Lim brought the textured floral together with another key trend for summer 2013 – sheer everything.

Bottega Veneta brought the romance with floral lace frocks with gorgeously feminine detailing.

There was a folky-feminine vibe at Dolce & Gabbana, who worked pops of vivid textured florals on tunics and boho fused swing dresses.

Walnut Street Wall

January 27th, 2012 / Posted by fp julia / Permalink

I took so many photos of this one wall in our Philly store, I felt like I needed to give it its own post.  There was so much to look at, it took my breath away.  Artwork, potted plants, memorabilia from around the world had my eyes darting back and forth, snapping away with my camera trying to capture it all. One of the coolest parts? Some of the artwork is actually for sale!

Resurrection Fern…Free People…

DIY Inspiration: Resurrection Fern

February 29th, 2012 / Posted by fp julia / Permalink

I first discovered Resurrection Fern a couple of years ago, and the woman behind it, Margaret Oomen, has been inspiring me ever since. Her blog is full of beautiful photography, nature, DIY ideas, and of course her many amazing crochet covered rocks. One of the coolest things about her little projects is that she uses fabrics and materials that she dyed herself using natural ingredients – it was her blog that inspired me to try out my own natural dye experiment! Since I have not yet mastered the art of crochet, I thought I’d share some inspiration – and you can check out a tutorial Margaret put together for some of her stones here, and photos documenting the process of her “missing pieces stone” here.

How pretty are these – she simply put the leaves on the stone, covered with a layer of cheese cloth, and hammered them!
