“certain things, they should stay the way they are. you ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.” – j.d. salinger

j.d. salinger, author of my favorite book of all time, passed away yesterday at age 91.

This was such a great book, i'm really glad they made us read this in school. My favorite quote is: If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody.

I've heard mentions of this book, for almost as long as I can remember, however, just the other day, I finally added it to my list of "books-to-read", (unfortunately, it was never assigned to me to read, in school or I may have found it long ago), and now to hear he's passed is really quite sad, but hearing everyone talk about the book, and him, once again, really motivates me to go read it already! :) xoxo, S-C

Post image for another new store opening!

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!

Post image for not just any book

after today’s DIY post, an fp girl here at the home office showed me a project she did, also involving butterflies. at first glance, it’s a normal book…

…but then you open it:

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!

punches

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:

6a00e553eafb068833011278dc8b9828a4-800wi

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:

read the full tutorial here.

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

Thanks for featuring my tutorial!

I too reuse FP and Anthropologie catalogue for art projects. Also I am tickled pink with the butterflies. I am in the process of redecorating my daughters room and I have also used butterflies as part of the theme. In addition to the butterflies, birds and birdcages will also be used. I can't wait to share the end products with FP facebook someday when I finish. I could only do a little bit at a time. You cannot hurry art, it just has to evolve. Wow I think this is why everything I do takes so long to finish !

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…
