Actually, that is my father! he is a big fan of DogTALK so we thought we could let his wolf-form have a cameo! :) I am not real sure where the mask came from, I think my sister found it somewhere in New York City...

Lip Dub Pop Muzik from fredasterical on Vimeo.
You might remember this entry we did about Victorian paper masks one of our designers brought back from the Netherlands. Check out this lip dub video using similar masks from fredasterical! Why didn’t we think of this?

See more pics of our design team in those silly masks.

After a hectic holiday season, the Thursday Poll is back with a vengeance! Last time, I asked whether you liked the Floral Tiered Convertible Skirt styled as a dress or a skirt, and the preference was overwhelmingly for the styling as a dress, with 351 votes! Having it styled as a skirt got 41 votes, with 2 votes for “other.”
This week, I have been admiring all of our slips! We recently came out with a bunch of new ones, and I’m real curious to know what types of styles you like!
First, check out our Solid Stretch Lace Slip below, in washed berry.

Next is our Tie-Dye Ruffles Slip in violet.

Finally, below is our Solid Lace Bandeau Slip in red.

beaded trees

A lot of you have a little break next week, and maybe you want a fun holiday craft to do? I posted these a couple years ago and everyone loved them, so I thought I’d share again!
Our display team made these beaded trees with those styrofoam cones you can buy at the craft store, a bunch of beads, and straight pins. They are SO easy to make and look so pretty and festive. Dump out that bead box and start pinning!
I can see these looking really pretty in more specific colors too, like if you did one all white and sparkly, or used just a few colors instead of the rainbow.

First of all, I HEART FREE PEOPLE. I've known about you guys when you were just sold in Urban and now you're all grown up! Congrats. So when I noticed you had a blog (that I'm so embarrassed I just found out about) I went straight to December hoping you had info on the wonderful decorations you guys have in your stores, and what do you know, here is one. I would like to get more detailed info on how to do this. So and I literally get cones, putting the beads in the push pin and than stabbing the cones with the push pin beads? Just want to make sure I have it right, I'm definitely doing this for the holidays and just because I secretly want my house to look like a free people store. =) Any additional info in this craft would be appreciated. Thanks!

I couldn’t resist sharing this photo of our “pet wall” with you! One of our accessories designers got the idea to put pictures of all the pets belonging to girls in the accessories room up on the wall in the hallway, and soon it spread to include pictures of everyone’s pets! It’s especially fun to see pictures of everyone’s kitties, since they don’t get to come to work like the doggies do!

You might remember when we put up our FP Community Tree a while back. It includes a picture of each FP home office employee. Recently, it got updated for the holidays, and it now has a picture of each FP home office employee as a child! It is so much fun to see how everyone looked as a little one!

Our lobby has recently been updated for more holiday fun too! I am crazy about all the hanging lights and garlands! They are such eye-candy- our Visual Display Team did a great job! (Thank you!)

Dominique DjeDje -Feb 25, 2009, 11:52PM
Ditto! I saw this in the store over the holidays and I wanted to take the whole store home. S'il vous plait (PLEASE) find out who and how they put these garlands and all the decorations together. Merci!
Anna McCaleb -Jan 04, 2009, 9:22PM
OKAY these garlands! WHERE WHERE WHERE can i find them! I am madly in love with them and i need need need them

FP Holiday Playlist!

We have yet another fun holiday diversion for you! I recently went around and asked everyone here at the home office for their favorite holiday or wintertime songs! We have put them together on a playlist for you, which you can access by clicking here. Please note however, that you need to have iTunes installed on your computer to be able to view the playlist. We have been experimenting with different ways to put up playlists for you, so we of course welcome any feedback!
At any rate, check out the playlist! It includes over 30 songs, including this awesome classic sung by Eartha Kitt below…

-Jan 17, 2009, 10:29PM
can you put up a store playlist? I love the music that is played in the store, but i never know the names
Tracy -Dec 03, 2008, 4:57PM
Found your clothes on a web search - LOVE THEM!! Would you consider an outlet site - for those who are financially challanged??!!

space 15 twenty

Our third We the Free store will open this Friday in an exciting new space on Cahuenga Blvd in LA. More on the We the Free store later, but here is some info about the new space created by our parent company, Urban Outfitters.
A new retail experiment in Hollywood, CA, Space 15 Twenty creates an opportunity for Urban Outfitters to collaborate with creative brands we find inspiring and interesting.
A courtyard leads from each store to an outdoor performance space and adjoining gallery. Both of which encourage designers and artists to become part of a curated environment. Working with neighboring music, film and art establishments, both courtyard and adjoining gallery will present a rotating cast of local musicians and artists.
The Urban Outfitters store will feature one-off installations by a new designer every few months. Alongside the 11,000 square foot Urban Outfitters store, Space 15 Twenty will host a selection of vendors. The revolving brands utilizing these spaces will reflect and compliment Urban Outfitters and present our customers with an overarching view of people and brands which are excited to be aligned with.
Check out the space15twenty for info on the other tenants and the great events the space will host.

LA Gossips -Nov 20, 2008, 12:05AM
I hear that the Urban Outfitters has amazing installations inside the store. I was told about a wall made of prom dresses inside that was a must see. How do they keep doing it season after season!? My staff and I can't wait to visit the space on Friday night!
