Halloween in Philadelphia always brings talk of the Eastern State Penitentiary, a creepy old historical prison where they do a haunted house every year.
Right now you can also view an exhibit called Ghost Cats by Linda Brenner. The work consists of a series of white cat sculptures, representing the colony of cats that lived on the prison grounds until the closing in 1971.
The photos are by Freddy Sarabia on JPG

I am sure my passed cat still lives in the bedroom

Eastern State Penitentiary is one of my favorite places to photograph. I hope that people enjoy my Ghost Cat pictures. Thanks for the post.

This last week in Philadelphia it finally started to get genuinely cold outside, and I imagine it has probably gotten at least a little bit cooler everywhere else too! With the cold weather comes outerwear in various guises, and there are quite a few different ways of keeping warm!
One way to keep warm is by wearing a cute coat, like our Parker Plaid Overcoat, shown here in charcoal.

You can also wear a nice thick hoodie, like the We The Free Shining Star Hoodie shown below.

Another cozy option is a warm sweater, like the Walk in the Park Sweater Coat, which is shown below in spruce heather.

So how do you like to keep warm?

I’ve posted one of Ann Wood’s castles and a boat before, but this one was made for Halloween! Ann constructed this cardboard wonder for the window at the Lower East Side shop Johnson (you can see it in person until Halloween).
Check out her blog for some detail shots and to hear about the hidden ghosts and enchanted horse!

It’s getting very autumnal outside, and here at the home office, that means it’s time to paint pumpkins! People from all the brands got together this afternoon and painted pumpkins which will be auctioned off to raise money for the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Philadelphia. The fund provides tuition assistance to help Philadelphia children, in K- 8th grades gain access to safe, high quality schools. We had such a blast painting pumpkins! Some of them turned out to be real works of art!

A hearty congratulations to our Free People Fashion Illustration Contest winner, Tuesday Mourning of South Pasadena, California! Hooray!
All of the entries we received were so special, it was really really difficult to pick a winner! You guys are an exceptionally talented bunch, and we had never gotten so many gorgeous illustrations by email and snail-mail before! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated! We truly enjoyed seeing your work!
Since we loved all the entries so much, we are currently in the process of saving them all in a set on our Flickr account, so be sure to check them out!

Hey Nicol! I'm sorry to report that we would like to avoid putting full names and other personal information on the Flickr account. However, if you send the pictures of the artists you are interested in to blog.freepeople@gmail.com, I can email you a couple names if you would like to research their artwork. Hope this helps! Thanks! xo p

Hey, I was one of the artists that submitted and I was wondering if you could switch the names of the files to the name of the artist who's piece it was so that if people want to look at more of their work they know who did it. There were a couple that i would like to look at if they have portfolios. Is there a way we can implement this?

Well, first off I would like to apologize for the lack of a poll last week, and a late poll this week! Last week I am afraid I didn’t notice it was Thursday until it already had become Friday! (I’m so embarrassed!) Then this week I wondered if the polls had perhaps become obsolete – but now I am happy to announce the return of the Thursday Poll in full force, due to popular demand! Hooray! Next week we will be back to normal, with the Thursday Polls showing up on Thursday!
For our fun little Friday poll this week, I wanted to ask you all about jeans, since lately I have been thinking about jean fits. It seemed to me that for a while, flared jeans went ‘out’ and skinny tight jeans were the only style that was ‘in.’ But lately I’ve noticed jeans of all styles and fits are coming ‘in’, and I love the variety!
Shown below are our FP Skinny Denim Jeans, which are a good example of the skinny & straight fit.

Here we have our Distressed Flare Jean by Pratt’s, shown in blue. They are a nice example of a flared or bootcut style of jean.

Finally, below are our FP Stretch Wide-Leg Jeans, which exemplify the wide-leg or boyfriend style of jeans.

So which fit do you prefer to wear?

pruittfpgirl -Oct 17, 2008, 11:26AM
Wow! You guys really do look a lot alike! I am not sure who the model is, since she works for Urban, and we generally try to avoid using the same models as they - but I can ask the girls who hire models around here if they've seen her before, (I bet they have) and see what there is to find out about her. I'll let you know!
Katie Eargle -Oct 17, 2008, 11:14AM
can't go wrong with flared jeans! also, i have to ask you for some help. I saw this model months back and I've always been fascinated to find out who she is, since i look a lot like her her: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30190660_3218.jpg me: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30184251_6326.jpg they say there's a twin for someone in the world and I think she's mine! haha
