Post image for what’s in your bag?

i always loved that scene from the breakfast club where ally sheedy dumps out her giant bag, revealing all the clutter she carried around.  maybe because i’m the same way… my friends make fun of me because i always have so much pointless stuff in my bag and it takes me forever to find my keys in it.

it’s fascinating to see what’s inside peoples’ bags, it gives you a little peek into their personality. here our some of ours!

I love that!! I have been obsessed with "whats' in your purse" for a long time ! And I love free people. I get inspiration from them. When I want to be inspired I go to the website and poke around. I have some items from the vintage loves, which is an amazing part of free people. I have those tea tree toothpicks in my bag too.I have a teeny tiny crossbody! Thanks for sharing! <3

Post image for desk space

i could spend hours wandering around our building checking out peoples’ desks… each one is like a window into who that person is – what they love and choose to surround themselves with and the things that inspire them when they’re creating.  here are just a few of the amazing desk spaces from around the office…

A few points in response to Anonymous: 1) Not all hippies are concerned about the environment, and not all environmentalists are hippies. 2) Free People doesn't market itself as an environmentally friendly brand. It sells upscale hippie-inspired clothing. 3) There are more ways to be environmentally friendly than just using a Klean Kanteen. Like by buying used items, and limiting your purchases to what's really necessary. Hop off that treadmill of consumption! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GorqroigqM

Post image for feng shui at work

our vintage buyer brought an article over to jemma about how to feng shui your desk at work, and i immediately decided my desk needed a makeover. my feng shui was all wrong… and with the beautiful weather we’re having today it felt like a good time to do some spring cleaning!

feng shui3_2

(the article is from whole living magazine)

here’s what my workspace looked like before – a cluttered mess!

IMG_3384

to feng shui my desk i followed the instructions above as well as i could with what i have here at work.  i put my plant, dreamcatcher and buddha figurine in the back left (or top left) area, with a photo of the sunset over the pacific in the background to make it feel as zen as possible. the bottom left area has a collage of photos from my latest trip, just kids, “music we like” from amoeba (a great music reference), my little journal and peaceful accents of blue. at the top right i have photos of loved ones and notes and cards from friends at work, and at the bottom right i hung some scraps of fabric to inspire creativity.

here’s the end result:

it may not look much different but it sure feels better! now i just need to feng shui my apartment…

Isabel -Feb 06, 2013, 8:35PM
This article was super helpful! I'm moving into an apartment and this is the perfect time to de-clutter and give my space a fresh new look!

rare rabbits

Post image for rare rabbits

this month when walking into our cafeteria you must pass by a brigade of jackrabbits, perched alertly on their haunches with their ears straight up in the air, like they’re about to take off running.  i looked up the artist who makes them, and the story behind them is pretty cool.

artist beau buck uses recycled materials, including hunting vests, denim, mexican blankets, and even remnants of a betsy ross american flag.  he also collects coats, bags and other fashion items that are made with fur, leather, teeth and feathers, and repurposes them as sculptures of the animals they originate from. very neat idea!

the flag poles outside building 543 down here at the navy yard got a little makeover today! this “yarn bomb” is the work of artist jessie hemmons of ishknits. i’ve posted about yarn bombing before – i think its such an interesting phenomenon that has been growing in recent years, with various crocheted objects popping up all over the world – a lot of it done anonymously.

ishknits

if you live in the philadelphia area, chances are you’ve seen some of jessie’s work (pictured above).  however, she told me that in some areas (like old city, where i live), city officials will have the artwork removed when they spot it. why would anyone want to do that? i think it’s beautiful, and i’m thrilled that we now have bright pink flag poles at the navy yard as it feels very appropriate for free people :)

check out the ishknits website here.
