I really love the makeshift belt Aline Weber is wearing with the Hooded Maxi dress! I wish I could see a better picture of it...or that it was a FP item I could buy :) Inspires me to be creative either way, which is one of the many things I love about Free People!

Post image for guest blog post: DIY bleach tie dye

Last summer, we were obsessed with shibori indigo tie dying. No, really . . . we just about dyed anything white in sight. So when Free People asked us to include a DIY in our guest blogger series, we knew a new tie dye project was absolutely in order. Reverse tie dye or extracting color using bleach has intrigued us for some time now and as the weather is warming up, what better time than now than to start experimenting with tie dye again!

To make a reverse tie dyed shirt, we used a black Free People shirt (bleach works best on natural materials, especially cotton), a few cups of bleach, a bucket, a pair of gloves, a few rubber bands and 2 flat shaped objects.

To make a grid-like pattern, fold the shirt like an accordion and bind it between two pieces of wood or any flat shaped object. Hold the shirt in place by wrapping a series of rubber bands around the bind. Anything used to bind the clothing will prevent the bleach from penetrating, so remember, any fabric exposed will bleach and turn color. Click here for more binding methods.

tiedye3

Before you start the process, make sure you are wearing gloves and bleaching outdoors or in a well ventilated area. Dilute approximately 4 cups of bleach with 1 cup of water. Submerge the shirt into the bleach for only a couple of seconds. Watch it very carefully because depending on the thread count of the clothing, the color can turn very quickly and the bleach may start eroding the fabric. As soon the black fabric transforms into a rusty brown color, immediately remove it from the bleach. Unbind it, rinse it with water and let it hang dry.

You’ll notice that the brown color will slowly fade into an even lighter shade over time. Once its dry, run the shirt through the washing machine.

Your reverse bleach tie dye shirt is ready to wear!

Post image for sxsw

music festival season is here! the SXSW music festival kicks off today in austin. this festival has always eluded me – there’s always some reason why i don’t go. last year i was supposed to go, but instead i was on the couch recovering from ankle surgery. anyway, i’m kicking myself for not going this year. the lineup is so extensive it can seem a little overwhelming but there are soooo many good bands playing, and it’s a great opportunity to catch them in a small, intimate venue.

i made a playlist below of some of the bands i’m into who will be there, and if i was going to austin, here are the items i would pack!

for me, the key to packing for festivals is picking a few easy items i can mix and match, like skinny jeans, white top, denim shirt, a little black dress in case i feel like dressing up at night, and a pair of boots.  i would definitely bring the cara pocket hip belt – a perfect festival belt so you don’t need to bother with a bag! and i would accessorize with some rad boot riders and a bag charm by the 2 bandits. throw everything in the mali pattern messenger, along with the aventurine pendant, bowie band ring, sunglasses and a journal, and hit the road!

Post image for the journey

the latest exhibit to go up over in building 543 might be one of my favorites  to date.  it’s impossible not to notice it when you walk in… back in the far corner by the cafeteria, a strange tower appeared last week… upon closer investigation it is revealed to be a tower of books, carefully stacked to form a rainbow of color with their spines.

the opposite wall displays more eye-catching sculptures like these:

and then this appeared above the elevator next to our café…pillows of yarn and crochet hanging like icicles from a dr. seuss book.  this blew me away – it’s called “heaven” by melissa haims.

the exhibition of contemporary sculptures, titled “the journey,” opens today at gallery 543 at the navy yard, which is open monday through friday from 9am to 5pm.

Post image for beach combing

the beach has overtaken my mind! i blame our march catalog for that…but i found this beach combing photo series by quercus design the other day and i think they’re so beautiful! they make me want to go to the beach right now and search for shells and stones and other treasures.

the arrangements are so beautiful…and it’s fascinating to think how the found objects differ depending on the location. what a cool idea… reminds me of our castaway trend!
