Post image for Free Shipping to Australia and New Zealand!

We’re already missing summer and longing for a trip down under! But since we can’t travel to the other side of the world for free, we can at least ship there for free :)  Starting today Free People is offering free shipping and 10% off on all orders over $100 to Australia and New Zealand through November 1st!

Really I appreciate the effort you made to share the knowledge. The topic here i found was really effective to the topic which i was researching for a long time.Though recently I came across a company Affordable Shipping Pty Ltd. . They are Australia based international shipping company providing a wide range of services such as: Shipping containers (20ft,40ft,40ft high cube), shipping boxes, crates or pallets, relocating overseas, shipping vehicles & house hold goods shipping from Australia (Sydney Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide & Fremantle) to Asia, Africa, West Africa, Europe, Middle East, South America, Pacific Islands & USA or anywhere in the world. They also handle both personal effects and commercial cargo.

This is awesome! I don't live in NZ at the moment, but right before I left to return to the states, I ordered a pair of FP jeans and had them shipped to my parents, and when I got there it was like a homecoming gift. Now when I go back to NZ for good I hope FP does this at least once a year! Pretty please?

Wow Shelby! You are spot on with that! I was just there last week shopping for my daughter and those girls in there were snobby and stuck up. They were closing in 20 minutes and they made me feel unwanted in the store, as if I was keeping them from closing! SO RUDE!!! Maybe I should try their other stores next time.
Shelby -Dec 20, 2011, 2:53AM
Im sorry to say this but i will no longer be shopping at the studio city location because of how rude everyone is that works here, I love freepeoples clothing but I would rather drive to woodlandhills even if i live in studio city.All the girls that work at studio city make people feel uncomfortable and not helpful. I hope they hire some nice people soon because I wont shop there till they get a new staff,including new manager. I have never felt so uncomfortable shopping.

Post image for Snapshot: Christopher Phelps, London

I first became familiar with Christopher’s work through his girlfriend’s blog, and I’m hooked! I love the candidness of his photos and how they serve as a visual diary of his life.

Lives in: London.

Shoots with: Over the years I have used a few different camera’s. I use a Canon SLR  for most of my photographs, however I love shooting in 35mm more recently. I also have some vintage cameras that are over 30 years old. My secret weapon is disposable cameras.

Favorite Subject: My girlfriend. She is also a great photographer, so when we go away or spend the weekend together, we like to take photos. It’s great to be able to look back at experiences you shared together and have some cool snaps.

Inspired by: My father used to be a semi-professional photographer in the 70’s, and he has taught me much of what I know. I would say he has been a big influence. Aside from that, I am easily inspired by the blogs I revisit, as well as my friends and family.

Random Fact: I’m obsessed with chilli peppers.

Check out more of his work on his blog!

Post image for Desk Top: Office Coordinator

I love to hear the meaning and stories behind the little things people keep at their desks. Everyone’s desk space here is so unique and full of tiny, fascinating details. Here’s a look at the Free People office coordinator’s desk top!

1. The headphones were actually a Christmas present from my father last year.  They help when I’m looking for new store music!

2. This little giraffe statue was given to me by our creative director.  She’s having a baby (!) and gave away little things after she baby-proofed her home.

3. This is a photo of my friend/coworker. His last day is on Friday (he’s going to grad school) so I snagged it off his desk so I can still see him every day.

4. It’s a pin that says, “Happiness is a warm puppy”.  I bought it from a thrift store, it makes me smile :)

5. A photo of my little kitten, Walker <3

6. A piece of my mom’s artwork that she did in college. Unfortunately, artistic ability is not hereditary.

7. A Swedish wooden horse my grandparents brought back from their visit to Sweden.

8. As the office coordinator, people often come to me asking for candles when they have office parties, so I keep them at my desk.

9. I get migraines all the time! My mom sent me this holistic Migraine Tonic recently- hopefully it works! (fingers crossed)

10. Worry doll- I think this came off of a cupcake from an old office party. They remind me of my childhood.

11. Photo of Audrey Hepburn- She’s one of 11 women I have hanging above my desk as my eyebrow inspiration #dontjudgeme

12 . One of our first round discs for a store mix cd

13. This finger puppet needed a home, so I adopted it.

Post image for Inspiration: NeSpoon

What if there was a magical spider that weaved its webs into intricately beautiful creations resembling lace doilies and delicate crochet… transforming abandoned or un-remarkable places into a beautiful work of art…and instead of being repulsed or scared, people would stop to admire its work…

Post image for Guest Post: DIY Fishtail Maxi

The lovely and creative Geneva of A Pair and a Spare contributed this amazing guest post for our blog!

 

Fishtail skirts have dominated the recent SS12 runways and are oh so sexy. What better way to jazz up a thrifted skirt than by creating your own fishtail style? Follow my steps below, it’s incredibly simple!

You need:

A thrifted skirt (I picked one with some subtle pleating)
A pair of scissors
needle and thread
an iron.

How to:

1. Put your skirt on and mark where you want the front, and shortest, part of the skirt to finish.

2. Take the skirt off and fold in it half down the front of the skirt – so rather than the back and front lying against each other, it’s the two sides that face each other – the way you might fold trousers before you put them on a coat hanger. Make sure the fold is directly in the middle of the front of the skirt.

3. Lay the skirt on the floor and cut out the front of the skirt – you want a straight line for the first 30cm or so to create the mini part of the skirt, then tapering down to the back and bottom of the skirt.

4. Try the skirt on to see if the cut out is big enough. I did this a few times, cutting more away to suit what I wanted it to look like. It’s always best to take this part slowly and do small amounts at a time.

5. Once you have a cut out that you like, fold over the edge of the skirt about 1cm and iron. You may want to double over twice but my skirt was made out of a fabric that didn’t fray too badly so once was enough.

6. Sew a small stitch all the way around the hem.

7. Iron flat again.

apairasparediyfishtailskirt5

Voila! All done.

Now wasn’t that simple? I absolutely love how this style moves around when you walk! Now that I’ve tested the process I’m going to make a few different coloured versions too.

Amazing!! thank you so much Geneva!

Read on to find the vocabulary you will need and links to sites with house plans. Cabinetry alone accounts for close to 50% of the total cost of the project - eating up half of your budget before you even blink. Investment in flooring can be really useful as it would enhance the lifespan of your floor.

Sensors in doctor's surgical gloves can help prevent accidents or assist a surgical procedure. When you get in touch with them, they will want to understand what size panel (wattage) you have and what the voltage is. A bigger fridge costs more to run, especially if it's mostly empty (as more cold air escapes when you open it) so if you live alone, a fridge which is only a quarter full is costing you too much money to run.

Post image for Paris Fashion Week: Highlights

Paris fashion week to me has a certain unique edge to it that gives the glamorous silhouettes a bit of funk. From tinsel skirts at Balenciaga worn with a structured top half to Chambray denim worn with foiled gold at Balmain, The designers featured at Paris always know how to mix the young with the old.

Valentino brought 1920’s lace back into the picture and wasn’t scared to hit the ground with it, while Chloe brought interested and unique proportions down the runway;  I love the exaggerated details in the garments – why not call out a great waistband or a cool sleeve.

Here’re my highlights from Paris, what did you guys think?

Post image for Trend Spotting: Fairisle

Fairisle is one of those words that awakens certain senses… it symbolizes chilly weather, playing in the snow and bundling up by a fire to warm your bones,  crisp air and red cheeks.

I never knew this, but fairisle is named after a small island in northern Scotland. The traditional knitting technique uses multiple colors to create the signature fairisle patterns, and first gained popularity when worn by the Prince of Wales in the early 1920s. Today its one of our favorite patterns for knitwear and we love it in all different forms – sweaters, leggings, socks, bags, you name it – it adds pattern, color and a touch of coziness to a basic outfit.

Here’s how some of us are rocking fairisle in the Free People office!

We love this cropped pullover to pieces! It’s the perfect sweater to throw on over a tank and jeans all fall and winter long.

I had to get a close-up of these amazing studded ankle boots too!

We’re dying over the new colors in the Pocono sweater leggings – These have snow day written all over them :)

fairisle3

Add some color to your outfit with a fairisle bag like the Peruvian ski satchel!

fairisle-sweater

Lastly, this fairisle tunic is amazing! Just throw it on over some tights and boots, and you’re set!

Are you guys into the Fairisle Trend?

Post image for Tunesday: Wye Oak

A few weeks ago I went to see one of my favorite bands, The National, play at the Academy of Music. There were two opening acts, and the first one was called Wye Oak, a band I’d never heard of. We missed their set, but I was curious so I looked them up. Big mistake – I totally regret not catching them live. Read more »

Maia -Oct 12, 2011, 3:15PM
Sooo happy to see a post on these guys. I live in Baltimore, where they're from, I've seen them a few times and they're one of my favorites. Glad they're getting the recognition they deserve!
