Brittaney resides in Bellingham, Washington, and is one of the star item reviewers on our website! She reviews using the nickname mushroommoon, and is a total Free People girl, who loves to create and be outside!
She writes: I appreciate dark, earthy, grungy clothing with a fine feminine touch.
To our delight, Brittaney agreed to do a mini-interview with us and tell us a little more about herself! Read on… So, what do you do for a living?
I am currently attending Western Washington University for a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Studio Art. What do you like to do for fun?
When I’m not doing homework, I paint, cycle with my fiance Adam, roll around on the bed with our corgi Morton, obsessively read Marx, and garden. :)
What music do you enjoy?
My favorite bands are Joy Division, New Order, Talking Heads, Neil Young, Can, and Nick Drake! Who is your style star?
David Byrne and Siouxsie Sioux! What inspires you?
Working on a project in studio with filthy hands and filthy clothes… Describe your style in 3 words.
grunge, flowers, earthy Name 3 wardrobe essentials for summer!
Flip Flops, flowers in my hair, and mismatched, bright accessories! Some final thoughts to share?
I only shop at the local Food Co-op. I buy organic, grow my own food, and I never eat factory farmed meat. Environmentalism is very important to me.
Yay! Thank you for sharing all this with us Brittaney! It’s been a pleasure!

Thanks again Brittaney!
One of our designers brought the picture below to my attention – it’s so fun to see people out and about wearing FP! It came from a Perez Hilton post about Kate’s new brunette hairdo – but check out her shirt! It’s our Printed Dreamweaver Tank in Purple Sun!
Ryanne, who designed the tank, was really psyched! And what’s extra cute is that she happens to be wearing that very tank, in that color, today! So random!
Here she is being happy and cute below!
Hooray! It’s Thursday, and it’s time for our Thursday Poll! Last week we took a look at some of the many ways to wear our Riding Hood Convertible Tee, and decisively chose the racerback tank styling as our favorite! It got 253 votes!
This week I want to ask you about some of our summer dresses and see which ones you guys really like!
Check out the Night Out Dress, shown here in Butter.
These pieces by Ulrik Martin Larsen are so carefully made and interesting! They look really intricate and delicate and yet the chains give a lot of them a very tough feel! They’re so inspiring – people have been doing such great things with chains lately! I also really, really like the one in the second picture down because of those little wood fingers along the edges! What do you guys think?
Via Garbage Dress.
The designs on these (very) old calling cards are gorgeous! I love the thought of a time when people would come see you, and leave cards to say they came by if you weren’t there, or to invite you to parties, or better yet, make romantic advances! Maybe sometime, somehow, calling cards will come back…
Anyhow, these beauties came from Dull Tool Dim Bulb – check it out for a few more.
This video is so funny and cool! It’s an old clip from the 1930’s, in which a few fashion designers predicted what they thought people would be wearing in the future! For being so far back as the 30’s, their predictions weren’t totally off base, I thought. Enjoy!
Due in part to her fascination with the stage shows she saw as a girl in which the animals would come on stage with little outfits on, designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who usually designs for women, has started making Dirndl dresses for horses! The horse looks so cute in her dress! Hee hee! Check out Oddly Enough Blog for more.
I absolutely adore this editorial from Cream Magazine! It was photographed by Macushla Burke, and the wonderful illustrations on top, the birds and such, are by artist KellySmith. I saw them on KnightCat and I keep going back to look at them more – they’re so inspiring!
