if you’re in new york this weekend you should check out score! at 3rd ward- it’s a massive free exchange where you can bring your old clothing, records, books, housewares, etc and swap them for other people’s old stuff.
not to mention you get one of these free tote bags:

AND, bread & butter collective will be there doing live screenprinting.
you really can’t beat it…all items are free, and all remaining goods go to charity…plus all proceeds from the event go to city harvest, the world’s first food rescue organization dedicated to feeding new york city’s hungry men, women, and children.
so gather up your junk and head over to 3rd ward tomorrow between 1pm and 7pm…entry is just $3, and you can rsvp here.

it’s thursday…you know what that means…tomorrow is friday!!!
…and, it’s time for another thursday poll :)
last week we asked about party dresses and got a whopping 741 votes! the winner is the on the fringe lace dress with 28%! the moonlight tiers dress was a close second with 23%.
this week…it is cold and rainy in philly so i thought it would be appropriate to ask which sweater you all want to cozy up in…
the cut out cape hoodie:

the v neck fairisle sweater:

the pieced cardigan:

the voluminous fairisle sweater:

I wish fp had more fairisle styles this year like they did in the Nov 08 catalogue. The styles this year seem more city/clubby and less pretty/fantasy/comfy for my taste.

new store playlist!

Post image for new store playlist!

check out this sweet new playlist of music we’re listening to in our stores…


Standalone player Get Ringtones

enjoy!

Chantelle -Nov 11, 2009, 6:42PM
I love it! Especially the Rapture, Matt & Kim and BoA! All artists I know of but songs I did not, thanks Free People xoxo
Jennifer -Nov 11, 2009, 1:18PM
it is so weird how this new autumn playlist is so entirely different from what i listen to in the autumn time. i start to get all relaxed (i go into hibernation mode or something) and make myself a playlist of vast, massive attack, soft zeppelin, blue oyster cult, zero 7, atmospheric music. this playlist was so pop-fun music, its just interesting to hear what someone else's take on seasonal music is.

yoga for a cause

do you love animals? do you love yoga? do you live in philly? then you’ll love this event…

this saturday, practice yoga studio and the monster minders present upward dog: a yoga benefit for paws. the event will take place in the beautiful sanctuary at fleisher art memorial (8th and catherine) at 4pm, with two full hours of yoga led by ellen greenberg, owner of practice yoga studio on fabric row.
this event is free but there is a suggested donation of $25 that will go to the philadelphia animal welfare society to aid in their efforts to save shelter animals.
you can rsvp for the event here.
sounds like a win win situation to me :) is anyone attending any cool yoga events this week/weekend?

Megan -Nov 11, 2009, 1:49PM
I'm not attending anything new, but I did start 40 days in a row of yoga yesterday! The more people I tell, the more I am committed...I hope I can do it

siren nation

if you’re in the portland area this weekend, the 3rd annual siren nation women’s music and art festival is taking place through sunday. this year’s festival includes an art and craft sale showcasing women artisans from the northwest, an art show featuring local portland artists (female of course), a film festival featuring documentaries about four female pioneers in politics, performance, poetry and partisanship, and a music festival featuring an all female lineup.

siren nation’s mission is to inspire and empower women of all ages to create their own art and to highlight the many achievements of women in the arts. the organization showcases and creates performance and exhibition opportunities for women throughout the year, and it is the only women’s collective that produces an annual festival showcasing the original work of women in music, film, performance and visual art.
for more info check out their website.

one of my co-workers sent me this really cool video from the chanel spring/summer 2010 show during paris fashion week…they put a spy camera in the model’s hair before her runway walk! it’s really interesting to see from her perspective…
