Photos are slowly trickling in from the Valentine’s 2009 craft swap, and there are some truly creative and amazing crafts. I really love the stuffed bird from recylced fabrics! Check them all out in our flickr group, and leave some comment love for the crafters:)

Be sure to check out our Falling in Love playlist and our Breaking Up playlist too!

A hearty congratulations to the winner of the Free People Best or Worst Date Ever Video Contest, Molly! Check out her video below!
All of the entries we received were so special, it was really really difficult to pick a winner! You guys have had some crazy dates, good and bad! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated!
And if you weren’t a winner, fear not! There are more contests and giveaways in the making! Stay tuned!

Comments are now closed for the February catalog giveaway. The lucky winner is Priscilla! Her comment was randomly chosen by random.org and she wins these trinkets our creative director brought back from the photoshoot in Mexico.
Here was her answer to the question “What is your favorite thing about the beach?”
My favorite thing about the beach is the sounds. Obviously, the ocean waves, the screech of seagulls and small children, pieces of conversation… I am so ready for summer to be here already. :P
This was fun! The answers to the animal question were hilarious. Scroll down a few entries and read them all.

Hourray! :D And thanks (again)!

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is nearing a close and that means it’s time for our Thursday poll!
For last week’s poll, I wondered which of our new swim suits was your favorite. It was actually a really close vote, with the Rubix Cutaway One Piece winning by 15 votes, with 139 votes total!
Lately I have been loving all the printed tights we have, they really make a dull outfit a lot more exciting! So, this week I wanted to ask you about our printed tights and see which ones you find most appealing!
First take a look at our Pondi Cherry Paisley Tight, shown here in grey.

Now, see our New Wings Footless Tights below.

Next, check out our Rainbow Fade Footless Tights.

Finally, shown here are our Courtneyrose Footless Tights.

So, which of these tights do you like the best?

Love these tights. I can't wait to buy them at Olive-couture.com or just in their store. They are the only store in Chico CA that carries the awesome Free People line. Love the first pair by the way!!!!!
Shelley -Feb 12, 2009, 2:22PM
The Pondi Cherry Paisley Tights are really cute they almost look like tatoos!

Do you have a couple minutes? (Just a couple!) Do you like filling out surveys? Take our blog survey!
We came up with this survey to see what you think of the blog and of Free People, so that we can keep coming with what you like, and improve too! Needless to say, we are really anxious to see your survey responses because we really want to know your opinions! So please, if you have a moment, take our survey! We’d really appreciate it!
P.S. The cute picture of the kitty with the Atari (I like to think he’s trying to take a survey,) is from here.

Today I bring you the second of our trio of Valentine’s Day playlists: the Breaking Up Playlist! Sad as it is, the fact of the matter is that sometimes love stinks, and sometimes we dump or get dumped. So, we asked everyone at Free People to tell us their favorite breaking up songs, and have compiled them into this playlist for you! Don’t miss our Falling in Love playlist from earlier this week, also!

I love the print on this tote! It reminds me a little bit of Elsita’s papercuts, and it would be pretty cute for keeping valentine’s too! Agree?

Cadah -Feb 11, 2009, 2:51PM

It’s time for our Thursday Poll!
Last week I asked which drapey top out of four that we are currently selling appealed to you the most. Your favorites were the Double Drape Tank, with 164 votes, and the Embroidered Floral Hoodie with 136 votes. Excellent choices- especially the Embroidered Hoodie I think, since I have one myself! ;)
This week, I am trying to get myself out of this wintry mood and into a more springy frame of mind. We recently started coming out with our beach line for this year, and I am obsessed! I have been perusing all of our bathing suits with interest as they come out, and of course I want to know which one is your favorite so far!
First, have a look at the Sandy Dot Cut-Out One Piece below.

Next up is the Full Fringe Bandeau Bikini.

Below, check out the Stardust Fringe One Piece!

Next is our Feather Frill Bandeau Bikini.

Finally, see our Rubix Cutaway One Piece below.

So what do you guys think? They’re so cute, right?! Which one is your favorite?

P.S. Ever wanted to know more about our model Jenny (above), since you see her around so much? A few months ago we profiled her and made a fun video! See it here.

One Piece Bikinis -Feb 28, 2013, 4:35PM

Alyssa Mrozek -Feb 06, 2009, 7:34AM
Hey I was just wondering what the brand name is for the Feather Frill Bandeau Bikini, because I love it sooo much, but I think it sold out already! Thanks!

The West Virginia University has created this awesome online library of vintage Valentines! There are three categories: cards, 3-D cards, and postcards. The postcards are some of my favorite. You can even send one of the vintage Valentines via email from the website.
I love the hot air balloon the best! Do you have a favorite??

I know I’ve mentioned the indie craft DIY documentary Handmade Nation. There has been a lot of buzz and some clips released, but the official screenings are finally happening!
In Milwaukee at Oriental Theater 2230 N Farwell Ave. on February 5th!
If you’re near New York, the film debuts on February 12 at the Museum of Arts and Design.
Following the screening, Faythe Levine (the filmmaker!) will be joined in a post-film panel discussion about the indie craft movement by artist Mandy Greer, and Kate Bingaman-Burt, Handmade Nation typographer. The discussion will be moderated by essayist Callie Janoff.
There are some other screenings listed on the blog (including Canada and Spain) so check it out. I can’t wait!
