Hooray! It’s time for our Thursday Poll! Last week we looked at a bunch of our summer dresses, and Pattra is going to be psyched, because Pattra’s Criss Cross Dress was the favorite by far, with 44% of the vote!
This week I’m obsessing over bright colors. I mean, I always am to some degree, but especially lately – maybe because of the upcoming colorful fireworks? At any rate, I noticed today that our Cheeky Lace Bra comes in many appealing colors, and I still haven’t decided which color is my favorite! Below are five of the colors – it actually comes in more than five, I just picked the brightest!
First check out Violet!

Next is Pimento.

Now shown below is Green. (Yes, Green. I am not sure why we called it Green, maybe the trim… He he!)

Now have a look at the Hot Pink!

Finally, here’s a pretty Grey!

So which of these colors do you prefer?

This is a cute little montage of our Visual Display team creating some signage for our stores using stencils and spray-paint! Look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor in stores soon! The cool song is called Ride an Old Paint, by Pete Seeger!

Welcome to our Thursday poll!
Last week we checked out some of our hoodies, and our favorite by far was the We The Free Thermal Hoodie! It got 41% of the vote with 259 people picking it as their favorite!
It might be because it’s been raining all week, keeping me in pants, but I have been eyeing our shorts a lot lately! The jean shorts in particular! Check them out with me!
First scope out our FP Acid Wash Cut Off Short.

Now have a look at the FP Studded Denim Cut Off Short!

Next up is the Blank Studded Short.

Bri -Jun 18, 2009, 3:47PM
Boy, if I buy the shorts, can I get the legs to go along with it?

hammer time

This will wake you up right! A group of dancers wearing hammer pants rush into a random store and surprise everyone with an awesome dance!

Sara -Jun 18, 2009, 8:13AM
That made my morning, thanks! I am old enough to have worn a pair of 'hammer pants' (well, in grade 8). Some of the customers at the beginning look scared!

I’m not sure I can explain The Uniform Project any better than the woman herself, so here is a quote from the website:
Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accoutrements, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade’s boudoir.
The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

So freaking awesome! Check out all her outfits so far here.
