How does your job influence your personal style?

When I’m coming to work I’m dressing for comfort, some days I’m running all over the office & others I’m sitting at the computer for hours on end, either way I like to be comfy & cozy.

 

 

What is your personal style?

When I’m working @ FP – it’s comfort.

When I’m DJing – it’s sequined & bright.

When I’m going out – it’s easy, boxy tee’s or oversized tanks mixed with tiny shorts or mini dresses always paired back to a punchy fun accessory or shoe or bright color to add interest.

100% of the time it’s based off mood, sometimes a girly side of me strikes at times and you’ll find me in a dress or something embroidered. Lately I’ve been obsessed with anything red & purple (esp. lilac). I’m famous for always wearing XXL t-shirts as dresses, pants are the enemy (but it’s all good – I’m only 5’2!) ……..and I’m warming up to the idea of pants for this fall only *IF* they are widelegs!

Go-to fashion rule or styling trick?

Wear things that make you happy – and don’t be afraid to change up your vibe when the mood strikes – it keeps your overall wardrobe eclectic ! 

 

 

Favorite part about your job?

Taking all the pieces and putting them together in a creative & cohesive way, finding inspiration & story telling through our product. I also love that every day feels fast-paced and different from the day before it. I’m naturally a high energy person so this works for me!

Most challenging part of your job?

I’m multi-tasking about 90% of the time, sometimes it’s hard to keep your brain straight and stay organized, most of the time, there are *too* many things happening at once, it definitely gets overwhelming.

One thing in your closet that you could not live without?

I have this XXL black tee shirt that has a giant eagle on it & says Las Vegas (kind of a random pairing ), I can’t remember where I got it but I’ve had it for as long as I can remember, it’s my favorite because it’s the PERFECT ‘kind of big’ and I’m from Vegas so it feels like home  – recently when I was packing for a trip and realized that *every* time I pack for a trip – this tee comes with me, sometimes to wear out as a dress, sometimes to sleep, sometimes to wear on the plane. It just always comes along with me. So I guess I can’t live without it.

Trend Alert: Why Flowy Pants Are the New Leggings + Introducing Our Well+Good Partnership!

Trend Alert: Why Flowy Pants Are the New Leggings + Introducing Our Well+Good Partnership!

This month, we kick off a collaboration with one of our favorite wellness sites, Well+Good…  

Say hello to Well+Good. The leading source of intel on the wellness world, with all the latest on fitness fashion, natural beauty, and healthy food trends in your inbox and online. Check back with us throughout the month for more articles curated by our friends and wellness partners, Well+Good.
 
An impressive leggings collection is a testament to how trend-savvy you are, but if you never thought you’d stray from your tried-and-true, second-skin tights, we have big news: Flowy pants are in — and they’re making a major play for workout-wardrobe domination.

Because while leggings are definitely a comfier alternative to your stiff vintage denim, sometimes you’re going for a work leisure look, and can read a little too sporty when you’re heading to rooftop drinks.

That’s why FP Movement is changing the game with its totally fresh flare silhouettes — roomy and breathable, while still holding up to your sweatiest workouts (plus, the style factor will make you want to wear them on your next sushi date).

The full activewear collection is made for studio-to-street versatility. The best part? You can easily transition these wide-leg styles from an everyday look to a workout outfit. Swap a blazer and heels for a sweat-wicking tank and sneakers and boom: You’re hot-yoga ready faster than you can say savasana.

Scroll down for three on-trend pants that will have you turning heads from sidewalk to studio (and back again).

Chica Lyrical Flow Pant

No judgement if you want to skip your workout and stay curled up with Netflix in these eco-friendly tencel gems — but, chances are, you’re going to want to show them off. The vented leg design puts its spin on the girly activewear craze, and the super-soft ribbed waistband is flexible enough for every body-bending move. Pair the pants with the high-necked Lua Bra for a statement look that still provide support.

Shade Flare

Because layering is key for a successful quick change, these side-zip flares are about to become your new BFF. Slip them on over your Backless Onesie, spritz some dry shampoo in your hair, and your barista will be none the wiser that you were just sweating to Drake at Y7.

Attitude Flare 

This billowy pant plus the corset-style Lira Sports Bra will have you feeling like an IRL ballerina during barre class (to the point we bet you’ll forget how much those piles burn). The sporty fleece fabric is specifically designed for ease of movement, so post-class you can swap your grippy socks for your dancing shoes and head out on the town.
