Post image for ‘fp me’ part two!

when we saw how amazing your “fp me” photos were that you posted on facebook, we knew that we had to do something special with them. we are so inspired by seeing how real girls wear free people clothing and love seeing your individual styles. so we are doing it again – this time with a new twist! we will choose some photos to be featured on freepeople.com!

to be considered, please submit photos of yourself showing how you style fp pieces. upload them to the fan page wall on our facebook page between now and 2/12 and label them “fp me”! photos chosen will be featured on freepeople.com later this month.

* also, please note – if you already posted pics for the last fp me, you will be considered for fp me part two, so no need to resubmit them.

can’t wait to see all your photos!

hi elizabeth! can you go back and label it as "fp me?" or just put "fp me" in the comment section? we are only going to use photos with that label, just to be safe so we don't end up using someone's photo who didn't want to :)
Elizabeth -Feb 05, 2010, 7:11PM
What if we uploaded a picture but didn't include "FP me" in the fb post? is it still okay? :( Thanks!

this is an old pair of jeans that i love, but they’ve got three holes in them.  i was okay with that for a while but now -  maybe because it’s so cold out – i decided it was time to patch them up.

here are some images i found around the web and saved as inspiration for my project:

i really liked the idea of using different shades of denim and prints with blue in them…

this patch of fabric is actually the inside of a pocket from an old pair of jeans, but i love the way it looks – and it fit perfectly over the large hole in the knee of my jeans!

i used scraps of old denim for the other patches:

and here’s the finished product!

i think they look much better.  the only thing i’m not sure about is whether i should do something to the bottoms or not – i might attempt something like this (the genetic patched flare):

…but i can’t decide. what do you guys think?

Post image for fp loves…jessica seaton

we’re so excited to introduce you to our new favorite jewelry designer – jessica seaton! here’s the story of jessica, how we found her, and why we love her work.

one fateful day, we were on a shopping trip in venice, CA when we went into a cute little boutique. we stumbled upon some of jessica’s brass & bones collection, and instantly fell in love. jessica happened to be in that very boutique when we were shopping…and the rest is history. she showed us some more of her collection and we knew we had to feature her in our boutique!

jessica, originally a fellow east coast girl who is now living on the west coast, moved to los angeles to pursue a career as a makeup artist. she took up sculpture as her art form, which in turn led her to jewelry design. her current collection was entirely hand sculpted using the method of ‘lost wax’. (lost-wax casting is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist’s sculpture.) in jessica’s own words, “the collection is entirely hand sculpted using the method of ‘lost wax’, which is a dying art because we live in the day and age of computer generated design and laser cutting…but i think you can feel the energy that was put into the handmade pieces, they carry the energy. i started the collection while i was on a short sabbatical in big sur, ca…finding dropped antler’s around the cabin and property i was living at…people responded to the pieces, which were bit more dramatic back then… and now we have brass and bones…the collection.”

jessica seaton currently lives in venice, CA with her cat bernadette.

check out our collection of jessica seaton’s designs here.

From my experience, I would recommend NOT using her to build custom anything. I used her to make an engagement ring for me and she ruined my plans because she would not communicate with me at all. Never responded to emails. She let me know the day of my proposal that the ring wasn't coming. Now 3 weeks later I just got it. It wasn't what I was wanting but she never would send me pictures during the process so I was never able to give input when in the wax stage. Read the full story here http://jessicaseatondesigns.com

“certain things, they should stay the way they are. you ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.” – j.d. salinger

j.d. salinger, author of my favorite book of all time, passed away yesterday at age 91.

-Jan 29, 2010, 5:02PM
This was such a great book, i'm really glad they made us read this in school. My favorite quote is: If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody.
Susanna-Cole -Jan 28, 2010, 7:34PM
I've heard mentions of this book, for almost as long as I can remember, however, just the other day, I finally added it to my list of "books-to-read", (unfortunately, it was never assigned to me to read, in school or I may have found it long ago), and now to hear he's passed is really quite sad, but hearing everyone talk about the book, and him, once again, really motivates me to go read it already! :) xoxo, S-C

fp loves…

Post image for fp loves…

another new feature on the blog!

“fp loves” will take a look at an item we’re really excited about and get word from the buyer on why they love it so much!  first up: the beryll vintage artisan asphalt boots… hand-distressed from restored leather sourced from the 60’s and 70s.

and, it turns out vogue italia loves the beryll boots too! they were featured in the cover story, shot by steven miesel, for the january 2010 issue!

the beryll boots are available on our website, here.

moo -Feb 05, 2010, 7:31PM
I can't believe how horrific that model looks.... it's hard to imagine talking about her stylish boots in the post and missing the point that she looks like death walking. It is the saddest statement on where a women's body image has been shoved to. In a corner with nowhere to go.
Taylor -Feb 04, 2010, 10:50AM
Wow those models look sick!!
