we’re very excited to be opening a new store at space 15 twenty in los angeles!
if you’re not familiar with space 15 twenty, its a unique retail setting where each store is connected by an outdoor courtyard, and includes a performance space for live music, an art gallery, and a monthly pop up shop.
stop by tomorrow for the grand opening party, with food, drinks, and vintage vinyl spun by dj dez!
one of the girls here at the office told me about this awesome DIY project that she’s going to try, and i think i might have to try it as well! it is so simple and there are so many fun things you can do with it…
what you need:
1. some pretty paper – this would be a great way to reuse your old free people catalogs!
2. punches in whatever shape or size you want – i love the idea of using varying sizes.
3. some zots (clear adhesive dots) and 3d-dots (sticky foam cubes) to add some dimension by placing the butterflies at varying heights, like this:
4. a picture frame with 3d mat board
once you have your paper picked out, start punching! lay out the shapes on a piece of paper as you punch, in whatever pattern you feel like. then you’re just going to attach them using the zots and 3d dots, placing the shapes at varying heights.
lollychops has a really great step-by-step tutorial if you need more direction:

she also suggests adding an inspirational quote or word – what a great idea!

lately i’ve really been loving the work of scotland-based artist fiona watson, using feathers, flowers, and other found items…
these are from her series called “an unwritten book”

so if you’re a fan of free people on facebook, you probably know about a little thing we’ve been doing called “fp me,” where we asked our fans to submit photos of themselves in a free people inspired look. we then randomly selected one each day to be our profile picture for the day. well we got some amazing photos! here are just a few of our beautiful fans…
