Post image for canada here we come!

very exciting news! we just opened a new free people in toronto’s hudson bay flagship store – the first fp in canada!

free people officially launched its 1,000 sq. ft. hardshop on the much talked about contemporary floor, which houses brands such as opening ceremony, McQ, LnA, halston heritage, tucker, catherine malandrino, vena cava and doo ri.

reflective of our creative roots, this shop is truly one-of-a-kind.  it is a beautiful blend of modern and vintage, mixing the earthiness of our teak tables and cane globe lanterns, with linear designed wood and metal racks.  our fabulous team of artists worked their magic, painting columns and back walls with gorgeous green flora and fauna, creating that special free people experience that keeps our girl coming back for more!

canada is big country, so stay tuned for more exciting free people launches where hockey may be golden, but sparkles and crochet will always be the way to a girl’s heart.

I also saw a few fp items in the Bay on Rideau st in Ottawa. Would love to see some more.

There is the FP line on St.Catherine's street at The Bay in Downtown Montreal since over a year ago, which nobody seems to talk about for some reason, even though Montreal is one of the world's most fashionable cities! I now live in SW Missouri, where there is no FP stores (or even Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie stores) so I really appreciate visiting The Bay when I fly home :)

“don’t cry because it’s over.  smile because it happened.”  – dr. seuss

what was your favorite dr. seuss book?  mine was always the cat in the hat…i loved thing 1 and thing 2  :)

I like "the Lorax" very much. Theres a quote I thought would go good on this site. My friend told me about it a while ago and we cried when we heard it. "Today you are you that is truer than true there is no one alive that is youer than you"-Dr. Seuss
Marilyn -Mar 03, 2010, 9:19PM
My favorite was The Five Hundred Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. :D Its the best! Its about a kid who tried to take off his hat for the king but there is always a hat underneath. Most of the book is the king trying to take his hat off.

hey everyone! sorry for the delay in posting today… i spent the morning in the hospital with a broken ankle :( but that wont stop me from posting the thursday poll!

so last week i asked about some of our cute sandals and the results were very close between the tahoe bootie, mindy beaded, and folklore sandals, but the tahoe bootie sandal came out on top.  those are my favorite too! i think i definitely might have to get them.

this week i’ve been eyeing up our rompers, and i want to know which one you guys like best…

Post image for instant love

when i posted the photos yesterday of our chicago visual mit’s puppy wearing an fp scarf, a reader wrote in “ohhh polaroids. when will they be back?” funny you should ask…i just heard earlier this week that the impossible project (which has been working tirelessly to bring back production of polaroid film) has encountered some problems that are delaying the project’s timetable.  they were planning on holding a press conference this past monday to announce what the future holds for polaroid film, but that event has been postponed until march.  i will keep you all posted!

in the meantime, check out the impossible shop where you can still find rare analog polaroid products.

the above images are from the flickr group “save polaroid”, which consists of thousands of self-portraits sent in by polaroid film lovers in an attempt to save the special film.

alyssa -Feb 25, 2010, 5:06PM
i'm the employee who sent in those polaroids, i actually used the new fujifilm camera that can be purchased at urban outfitters, the polaroid film is about the size of a credit card and the film can also be purchased at urban! its totally available! as far as the old polaroid film goes, i miss it, but this keeps me happy in the meantime. :)
Arlie -Feb 25, 2010, 3:55PM
found this a few days ago.... not a huge fan of Gaga but Polaroid has a very smart marketing team :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTVLVoepKRM

Post image for end of the day cuteness

how cute are these pics? they were sent to me by the visual mit at our chicago store, who says:

i went home recently and dressed my little yorkie-poo in a free people scarf, and he ran around in it for hours it was so comfy to him!

i love it! thanks for sharing :)

freeargentinian -Feb 24, 2010, 10:02AM
ohhh Polaroids. when will they be back? you should update on that!
Wrecked Stellar -Feb 24, 2010, 7:59AM
Too cute! I'd be running around too trying to show off my pretty, cozy scarf!
