Post image for hot hair tip!

so last month we made a little video showing you how to do a fishtail braid – and this month we have a kickass way to spice up your fishtail braid! our stylists and hair/makeup artist are loving this look right now – colorful streaks woven into the braid!

Now this can be done many ways- you can do one color or three, you can actually dye streaks in your hair, or you can put in colored extensions.

for the braid in these images our hair/makeup artist used extensions. she mixed blond, blue, purple and pink extensions together and spread them out before braiding them into a fishtail, which she then clipped into the model’s hair. simple enough, right?

here it is on a larger scale in our august catalog:

i love it and i am definitely going to try it!

Direct sunlight is one of the common causes of hair damage. Even when you are wearing hair extensions, still protect your extensions and most especially your real hair from direct sunlight.

This is lovely! I'm actually about to purchase some purple hair extensions but how did you get the color to be such an earthly, faded color?

Post image for shooting our august catalog

when our team returned from morocco after shooting our latest catalog and shared all of their photos, i was completely blown away. the desert setting in the photos almost looked unreal – like something out of a dream. their experience shooting this book must have been incredible and these behind the scenes photos give you a glimpse of what it was like…

our team flew into marrakesh, and from there they traveled to morocco’s “hollywood town” of ouarzazate.  they then drove seven hours into the desert, arriving in the dark of night.  when they woke up, this is what they saw:

they had the option of sleeping in the tents, or outside!

I second the notion of having an info page with photographer and location info! This catalog has been my new favorite since the one with the pets from the animal shelter months ago!

Post image for camel time

our august catalog is here! i’ve already told you about two of the models in this book, klara wester and hind sahli, but i failed to mention the other model – the camel!

our team named the beautiful “free people” camel who graces the cover and pages of our catalog janis joplin :)

4642469011_8bbde4d0d1_z

i think the name suits her, don’t you?

the reason they thought to call her that is because the other two camels, who our team got to ride, were named jimi hendrix and bob marley!

4643083514_c832012600

i believe that’s jimi on the left and bob on the right :)

Trend Report

Post image for Trend Report

The sales have hit the stores and the Fall collections are slowly creeping in, already?! Yup I know!

It’s rather exciting though, I really like it when the transition time in fashion comes around. You can start fresh and experiment with new looks.

This weekend I fondled the runway shows to see what was cooking on the trends department. There’s a couple of key looks happening for Fall but the two that I’m liking the most are the “man up” look and the “Long View” as categorized by style.com

The sound of light weight, slightly oversized silk, satin and chiffon shirts combined with blazers, cardigans, waisted belts and the MUST HAVE for FALL long mesh or chiffon skirts.

Girls are going crazy over the maxi skirts and I’m one of them. They give a very elegant silhouette that I’m somewhat addicted to.

Below are some of the lovely skirts that are available at Free People and the looks the designers are running down the runway.

 

Carrie -Aug 04, 2010, 3:58AM
Love all the new fall clothing!
-Aug 04, 2010, 3:57AM
I live in Arizona so everyone thinks I'm crazy when I get excited for coats, jackets, and cardis when its still 100+ degrees out! But who can resist all the cute new trends?

Post image for wait a sec, is that BOB?

our beloved customer service manager is pictured on this year’s eagles season tickets! to show their appreciation for their biggest fans, the eagles put their photos on the tickets, saying “we reached out to you to share your eagles stories with us and we were touched by the depths of your passion for eagles football.  all ten of this year’s tickets feature fans with a unique perspective on what it means to be an eagles fan.”

bob’s story? “i painted E-A-G-L-E-S on my neighbor’s roof for the planes flying overhead. now did she know about it? well…”

i love it! bob will also get to be on the field at game one to start off the eagles chant :)

E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!
