I can't believe the last dress has no votes yet! I like this one second best to the X axis dress. . .but apparently these are unpopular choices thus far! - Lauren Ladaisi Blog

Post image for inspiration from polyvore

hey do you guys remember our concept intern anastasiya? she’s interning for us again during her winter break, and i wanted to share these dreamy collages she made in polyvore. the images she puts together and her writing are always so inspiring!

new romantic

sweeping tulle caresses the skin on her legs as a childlike wonder guides her through the rustic scene. at the far corner of the field glimmer apple trees of a distant orchard. she picks up the hem of her maxi skirt, cradling the ivory mesh between her fingertips, and sets on towards her new destination. bathed in a palette of nudes, burnt sienna, and myrtle, she feigns camouflage and imagines she is of the land.

picking sea shells on the surf

the water dances around her bare ankles as she tiptoes through the sun bleached sand. draped across her frame in soothing shades of coral and mint that reflect the oceanic scene, loose dresses bathe the free people girl in comfort, each fiber tickling her skin. she gently plucks each shell from its bed of sand and muses upon it for a moment, then tucks it into the glistening satchel suspended from her wrist where it settles amid her existing treasures.

snow treader
polyvore4

bursts of color fuse in the intergalactic sky, painting a warm glow over the snow covered field on which she walks. feet snug in her weathered boots, she treads on in the spell of the dewy night, dissolving the snow to sunken footprints that glisten in her wake.

when night falls
polyvore2

when night falls, her wardrobe mimics the moody saturation of the sky. deep jewel tones and dense black slather her skin. the romantic lace and vintage embroidery is protected from the night with buckles and sharp victorian elements from the things she carries.

on the road
polyvore5

the road shrinks in her rearview mirror as the distant call of the west pulls her forward towards new horizons. soft knits cradle her skin, a comfort she cherishes in the midst of the constant change. as she drives, the soft western trinkets cascading from her wrists sound against the steering wheel, filling her mind with images of the landscapes that will soon be hers.

check us out on polyvore, here!

Post image for wednes-diy

you’ve all probably seen an image of photos arranged in a heart shape before… i know it’s been done. i found this one particularly sweet though – i like how it consists of all images of deer. and it got me thinking about other variations you could try this with. i have this one wall in my apartment with nothing on it, so i think i might do something like this but i can’t decide what!

my first inclination was to make a collage of my favorite photos of various places i’ve been… but then i thought this might be a really fun project for the new year – making a collage of photos from the past year. i decided to try it out at work today using some of my favorite images from our 2010 catalogs!

101_5005

it was really cool just looking back through this year’s catalogs and tearing out my favorite images.  i feel like they just kept getting better and better this year -  i didn’t think our team could top the august catalog shot in the desert in morocco, but then i saw september and fell in love.  and wait till you guys see our january 2011 book – it’s breathtaking.

101_5009

i don’t know if there’s a certain way to do this that’s easiest, but i started in the middle. it was a little tricky because my images were all different sizes.  i wanted the camel image to be at the center because i love it,  then i just worked around it, using different image sizes and rearranging them until they formed a heart.

i really like how it came out!

Hey, I'm also working on a collage. I'm so fan on Free People and I would love to complete my collage with various amazing images from Free People catalogues. But there is no shop in France and no stockist. Please could you tell me how I could get some past issues? Thanks for caring x
FP Fan -Dec 31, 2010, 12:44PM
Ah! I've been working on an ongoing collage for a while now made from Free People catalogues. I will send a picture when it's done.

Post image for diy inspiration!

this awesome photo was sent in by our reader jenna, who wrote:

“so i’m on winter break…and have a ton of free time. i bought a cheap ukelele and am currently teaching myself how to play via youtube. anyway, i was still bored, so i decided to decorate my uke using acrylic paint… i think it ended up looking pretty freepeople-esque!”

i agree! i love it so much :)

tunesday

Create a MySpace Playlist at MixPod.com

it’s the last tunesday of 2010!  i was thinking back on the new albums that came out this year, and it’s always interesting to me how listening to certain music can bring back such vivid memories of specific moments.  for instance, the local natives album gorilla manor – i bought it soon after breaking my ankle — and it reminds me of the first time i was able to drive again after the injury.  i had it on in my car, it was sunny and spring was on its way… happy times.  lcd soundsystem’s latest album will always remind me of sitting right here at my desk as they soundchecked next door before doing an end-of-summer show at the navy yard.

so many memories of the past year came rushing back as i compiled some of my favorite songs of 2010 for this playlist. i got to go to some great shows this year, and we had fp girls representing at so many festivals – SXSW, coachella, bonnaroo, wanderlust, XPN, lollapalooza and austin city limits…

what was your favorite song or album of the last year? what’s your favorite music memory from 2010?

Post image for stories from our fans

i asked, and you responded! thank you so, so much to everyone who has sent in stories about their connection with fp! your stories, photos and artwork are beautiful – please keep them coming!

in the meantime, i wanted to share one of the very first emails i got, from sarah:

“I’ve loved FP since about 10th grade in high school and I think the reason is that in a lot of what you all do I see a reflection of myself – especially since reading the blog.  I think the things that inspire you inspire me as well. I recently graduated from UVA with a Studio Art major in painting… I’ve painted since I was little and love it for the creativity and self expression it allows me. My grandmother was also an artist (I still use all of her old paintbrushes and paintbox), so I also appreciate the special inner connection it makes me feel to her. My work is very free, whimsical, feminine, and I am in love with nature so very inspired by that as well. I feel that these are a lot of the qualities that I also see in your brand and that is why I am so drawn to it.. As for other interests, I am currently getting certified to teach yoga classes, love music and going to shows, fashion, snowboarding, anything outdoors and with my friends… I find your blog and everything about FP such an inspiration so just thought I would share the connection I feel to it :)”

and here is some of her lovely artwork:

i am in awe of your art sarah! it is simply stunning.

A wonderful little story, especially the part about using her grandmother's paintbrushes. What a wonderful legacy to carry on!
