Post image for daughters of the revolution

There are two beautiful dresses in our March book from the label Daughters of the Revolution – beautiful graphic dresses that are ideal for a vacation as beach cover ups or dressed up for a day to night look.

Here’s a little about the designers;

Daughters of the Revolution designer, Emily Cadenhead, creates her clothes to evoke the sensibility of freedom, nature, love, and femininity that have marked her life. Her parents are hippies who live an environmentally friendly lifestyle, which liberally encourages creativity. Growing up in Malibu and Palm Springs with nature outside her window, Emily spent most of her upbringing painting and drawing. In 2007, she started Daughters of the Revolution with a small collection of hand painted dresses.

Daughters of the Revolution is a family business committed to sustainable design. The team works on a micro-level carefully selecting ethically and environmentally responsible techniques for their garments. Daughters of the Revolution uses a combination of organic clothes, natural fibers and silks. Much of their sequins and beadwork are made of recycled materials. Emily’s print designs echo nature and fairytale with recurring motifs of flowers, seashells, feathers, animal and ethic prints. The focus of the design is comfort above all else therefore developing a loyal following of women from around the world who love the collection. Daughters of the Revolution is now carried in over 200 stores worldwide as a celebration of the female form, freedom, nature, love and happiness!

Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to strt myy own website soon but I'm a liuttle lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

Post image for march moodboards

our creative team sent me some outtakes from the march catalog that they didn’t end up using, so i decided to have a little fun with them and create some mood boards – each centered around a theme: castaway, in the city, and swim.

castaway

she treads barefoot through the sand, her skin tickled by the salt and sand.  she dances along, dipping her toes in the ocean and stopping to pick up sea shells that shine like pearls. she drapes herself in sheer fabrics that don’t add any weight, so she can take off in whatever direction the breeze blows her.

(items pictured: summer layers skirt, fp-1 rainforest maxi dress, starlight lovers dress, fp-1 tie dye sunburst maxi, open stitch beach tunic)

the city

evening sets in and the temperature in the air cools as she steps out for a night on the town. dressed in bold colors and patterns, crimped hair and red lips, skin glowing from the day’s sun and eyes alive with excitement,  she dances down narrow streets into the magical night.

(items pictured: fp-1 tie dye sunburst maxi, rugby stripe column, sheer yoke floral skort, seneca rising live twice short, pleated florals top, buttoned up in pleats skirt, crosswords maxi tube dress, daughters of the revolution striped tunic, lady in leopard dress)

swim

swim

she takes a breath and dives deep, the cool water shocking her skin after the sun’s intense heat.  she savors every second of the feeling of freedom one gets when they hit the water.  all other sounds are drowned out, it’s just her and her thoughts as she moves languidly under the surface.

(items pictured: fp-1 wavebreak smocked tube dress, crochet bikini, summer layers skirt, lace cropped kaftan)

which of these mood boards/ lifestyles do you guys identify with most?

destiny -Mar 20, 2011, 5:24PM
Swim is my favorite... being in water is the most blissful thing for me. And I absolutely love all of the clothes! I can't wait for summer! Castaway is definitely a close second :)
Senna -Mar 13, 2011, 1:24AM
I really feel a connection to cast away... But I love swimming

Post image for wedding details

last week i received an email from a reader who said that she got married last summer and wore a free people dress before the ceremony, and that it helped to make her special day even better. she also sent a link to her photo album and i was completely blown away – i always find myself drawn to the small details that people put into their wedding day to make it personal and special.

35133_414456476897_518316897_5314547_5699349_n

you may remember, one of our fp girls wore this same dress for her wedding too! i can see why, it’s beautiful. i love the blue shoes she paired it with, and the groom’s converse sneakers!

Does anyone know who makes this dress? I am getting married in Sept 2012 and am absolutely in love with it!! Thank you! xo
Debbie -Mar 12, 2011, 10:06PM
You mentioned that the bride wore this dress (which I own and adore) "before the ceremoney". Does that mean she changed into something else for the actual ceremony or was this the wedding dress? The photographers portfolio is amazing! I only got as far as her engagement shots, but they are all so unique! I love her use of light. :-))

Post image for A weekend makeup thought

Our model Martha Hunt styled herself in the studio on Friday. Her look – reminiscent of a 90’s Debbie Harry consisted of strong bronzed eyes and a rough and ready hairstyle.

The way she teases the camera lens when she’s in front out it is breathtaking. She totally set the mood for a Friday night.

Below is the product that was used to create her look. Stay tuned to see the look book of the style she put together.

Post image for an item we love: mochila bags

the amazing mochila bags featured in our march catalog are a true labor of love.

each bag is hand woven by tribeswomen of the sierra nevada de santa marta in northern colombia, an act of tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of preserving their culture and earning a livelihood.  they believe that the act of weaving is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is passed on from one generation to the next, and the patterns woven into the bags are said to have a spiritual and cosmological significance. the history of these bags and all of the care that goes into them makes them extremely special – something to be cherished for a lifetime.

a third of the profits for each bag sold go to different community-based initiatives aimed at children and at supporting female artisans from indigenous communities in south america.

bag

i love how they look styled in our march catalog – the prints on the bags look awesome mixed with some of the bolder black and white prints in the clothing.

personally, i’ve got my eye on this one… i think it’s the beach bag i’ve been looking for my whole life. the perfect colors, the perfect size…i laid out what i’d pack for a day at the beach.

items pictured: crochet bikini, borderline fringe sweater, daisy chain shorts, mandy braided sandal, sunglasses, lorimer straw hat, raggy desert scarf, pattern mochila woven bucket.
