Post image for wait a sec, is that BOB?

our beloved customer service manager is pictured on this year’s eagles season tickets! to show their appreciation for their biggest fans, the eagles put their photos on the tickets, saying “we reached out to you to share your eagles stories with us and we were touched by the depths of your passion for eagles football.  all ten of this year’s tickets feature fans with a unique perspective on what it means to be an eagles fan.”

bob’s story? “i painted E-A-G-L-E-S on my neighbor’s roof for the planes flying overhead. now did she know about it? well…”

i love it! bob will also get to be on the field at game one to start off the eagles chant :)

Post image for thursday poll – edition 103

i’m all about slips right now.  they’re light and airy for summer and perfect for carrying over into fall and winter as layering pieces. i have my eye on a couple of these… which one is your favorite?

the loving tulle layering slip:

the fields of lace dress:

the chiffon and lace tiered ruffle slip:

the sleeveless ruffle up solid tunic:

or the pointed maxi slip:

the winner of last week’s poll was the vintage mandala bag with 42%!

Post image for style file

this week i thought i’d share these posts fp jemma put together about what our stylists are into right now!

first, our assistant stylist:



I am going through a fashion rut right now – I just want to start styling for fall already and start layering! These are some things that I currently love for fall…

Rag and Bone Fall 10

Knee socks, fairisle sweaters, great wovens. Tons of layering. Gothic jewelry. Very much inspired by the Craft right now.

Erin Wasson from November 2006

and our associate stylist:



So I’m currently obsessing over an array of things!  Fall is just around the corner and my closet could use some fresh new pieces!  Top on my list is crazy big vintage bell bottoms (the bigger the better) and funky graphic tees!  I need need need these custom hand knitted bell bottoms from the Etsy designer, Jane Oh.

I’m also loving the lingerie as outerwear trend that happening right now!  It’s a great transitional trend that can easily be updated for fall with over the knee socks, big chunky sweaters and boots!

Can I also just say how freakin cool all the August accessories are!!  We can’t wait to style with all the Navajo inspired jewelry, bags, and shoes!!  Some of my favorite Fall 2010 runway shows so far are Sonia Rykiel (personal fav) and of course Ana Sui with her crazy color palate, mix of texture and print and those crazy printed tights! Oh yeah and last but not least….def jumping on that funky color hair trend!  Just need to decide what color…blue or purple???  Ok, I’m rambling now…gotta go!

Post image for free people august catalog sneak peak

“we went back to morocco for 7 days to shoot the august catalog. we traveled from marrakesh to morocco’s “hollywood town” of ouarzazate and then 7 hours into the sahara desert from there. it was an amazing trip… we laughed a lot, slept under the most stunning stars, rode camels… i will never forget this adventure.”








much more to come…

Post image for hot and cold

on the trek to building 25, sunlight filters down from the sky and presses summer gently on the shoulders. walk through the double doors and you enter a different season entirely. while i was sitting in on a meeting yesterday, i found myself casting wistful glances at the cardigan/sweater/jacket/blanket clad shoulders around me, all the while struggling to banish the impulse to hurl myself at a sweater sample and disappear inside of it. it seems that spending the day in such a boldly air conditioned building has tricked me into thinking that it is winter.

everywhere i look i see plush cardigans and deliciously cozy knits. the we the free navajo cardigan that i have had my eye on since it first appeared on the web has done more than turn me onto the navajo-inspired trend. i now find myself feverishly looking up sweaters and moccasins, dreaming of the warmth and comfort they would bring. from what i have seen of what’s to come, i think free people reads my mind.

i decided to take a walk around the office to see how FP girls keep warm…






roger snug and warm in his fur coat :)

here are some lovely pieces to wrap yourself up in:


left to right: we the free navajo cardigan, desert drifter cardigan, southwest poncho.

be still, my heart, a cozy blanket with sleeves…

Julia, you really should think about writing a book. You are a terrific writer. You have a magical way of describing things which really goes with the FP ethic. Thank you for inspiring me!

what are some of your favorite things?

tummy rubs are my favorite, and i like the dog park, the ocean, and just straight chillin’.

what do you do during the day?

cheese.  i will work for cheese.

what are your least favorite things?

i don’t like strangers, especially when they come in my house. and i don’t like my neighbors.

I love that he has a lady friend!!! I am disappointed he hasn't fallen for that teensy yorkie a few desks over, though!

so i saw these friendship necklaces on honestly…wtf last week and i’ve been thinking about them ever since.  they definitely bring back memories of grade school – although i actually still wear friendship bracelets that i made back in those days. what excited me about this was the idea of making lots of extra long necklaces to layer… and then i got to thinking… what if i tried it in my hair?

all you need to do this is some string – and if you want to make necklaces like the ones above, rope or hemp cord. if you don’t know how to make these, it’s incredibly simple and you can find an excellent tutorial right here.

during my lunch break i drove over to a.c. moore to pick up some string – so many colors to choose from!


i got some hemp cord too for when i make the necklaces.


these are the colors i’m going with for the hair wrap.


i took a small section of hair, wet it and twisted it up, and then just knotted the three strings around it – warning- it might not be easy to take out :)

now use your hair as if its the rope in the tutorial, and start wrapping! use one color at a time, holding the others in with the section of hair until you want to change them up.



another cool idea- wear the necklaces as belts:

putting a charm or pretty pendant on the end also gives it a little something extra
Megan -Jan 11, 2012, 4:48PM
I did this to my hair this last summer (2011) because i was really bored and it looked so pretty in some pic i had looked awesome (to me) but no one else really noticed it..maybe next time i'll put it on the top layer instead of underneath because no one could really see it..when my mom seen it, she did think it looked really cute...I also braided the strip of hair before I wrapped it, it made it alot easier to work with :)
