good morning! let’s get right to today’s poll, shall we? last week i asked about some of our army surplus styles and the winner, just by ten votes, was the platoon jacket!
this week i want to ask about some of our adorable printed bralettes! we’ve got some great new ones in romantic, pretty prints just in time for valentine’s day. and they look super cute peeking out from under tank tops and sheer tees! so which one do you love most?
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.
we always love the pictures our facebook fans post on our wall, so we thought it would be fun to reach out to some of our biggest fans and get to know them a little better. first up…nicole from california!
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.
happy thursday everyone! it’s poll time…last week i asked about some of the graphic tops we have right now and the winner is the zuma mason tank with 31% of the votes! that was my favorite too :)
this week we’ve had the military trend on the mind…it was a huge trend on the runway for spring/summer 2010, and we’ve got some great pieces right now to help you get this cool, army-inspired look. which of these would you most want to add to your wardrobe?
“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.
so if you’re a fan of free people on facebook, you probably know about a little thing we’ve been doing called “fp me,” where we asked our fans to submit photos of themselves in a free people inspired look. we then randomly selected one each day to be our profile picture for the day. well we got some amazing photos! here are just a few of our beautiful fans…
