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!
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!
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.
Thursday already!? Hooray!
We looked last week at the Fan Club Tube and our favorite color was Hot Coral, by a lot! It got 233 votes out of 566!
This week I have been checking out some of our latest sweatshirts. (It may have something to do with how rainy it’s been here lately!) We have a lot of cute styles, and I’m interested to see what tickles your fancy! See a few of our sweatshirts below!
First look at the We The Free Thermal Hoodie in Turquoise.
Next is our Draping Crochet Hoodie!

Last Week we scoped out a few summer dresses, and the One Shoulder Banded Bottom Dress ended up as the favorite, with 157 votes!
This week I am kind of obsessed by our new Fan Club Tube, which is basically the printed version of our fun Solid Banded Tube. I love all the prints, and I am interested to know which color you guys like the most!
First check out the tube in Sky Combo.
Next is the tube shown in Hot Coral Combo.
Finally, here’s the tube in Deep Indigo Combo!
So which color do you prefer?

(See pictures of these items at the bottom of this post and on our site.)

A Few Guidelines
-Your illustration must be your own original design.
-Illustrations may be created with any two-dimensional medium.
Examples of two-dimensional mediums include crayons, markers, paints, pen and ink, computer imaging, chalks, pastels, colored pencils – basically anything that is on paper or computer.
-Illustrations should be no larger than 11×17 inches, or no larger than 6336×9792 pixels.
-Illustrations must include at least one of the following items:
One-Shoulder Banded Bottom Dress,

You do not have to use all three items. For the items that come in multiple colors, you may use any color you like in your illustration. You may also include any other Free People items that you like.
-You may enter more than one illustration, but if you choose to do so, each illustration must be entered on its own, as a separate entry.
This means if you are using snail mail to turn in your entries, they can all be mailed in one envelope, but each illustration needs to have your name and information attached to it.
If you are emailing your entries, each entry needs to be in a separate email.
-You must be at least 13 years old and a resident of the United States of America to enter.
