when i posted the photos yesterday of our chicago visual mit’s puppy wearing an fp scarf, a reader wrote in “ohhh polaroids. when will they be back?” funny you should ask…i just heard earlier this week that the impossible project (which has been working tirelessly to bring back production of polaroid film) has encountered some problems that are delaying the project’s timetable. they were planning on holding a press conference this past monday to announce what the future holds for polaroid film, but that event has been postponed until march. i will keep you all posted!
in the meantime, check out the impossible shop where you can still find rare analog polaroid products.
the above images are from the flickr group “save polaroid”, which consists of thousands of self-portraits sent in by polaroid film lovers in an attempt to save the special film.
you may recognize these images from our first episode of home sweet home that was on the blog a little while back. i came back to them recently and wanted to draw out a great decorating tip that might inspire your own efforts at home!
in case you didn’t see it, another fp girl and I went to the home of our director of design and image and took a little tour of her home. one thing that really stood out to me about how her house was decorated was the use of pink tape all over! it is such a cute idea and definitely adds that free people touch to a wall of photos that might otherwise look a little bit plain.
i love how it looks against that blue paint!
if any of you have fun, free people inspired decorating ideas, please do share :)
i found this photography project the other day and it reminds me a lot of the WAFA mail art postcards i posted this morning so i thought it would make a cool DIY project for today! this is something that i definitely want to try- all you need is a camera and a friend!
every week, photographers ian land and caroline hancox each take a photograph and email it to each other. they then create a diptych of the photos and display them on a website, taking turns deciding which photo goes on the left and which one goes on the right. to make things more interesting they live 114 miles apart, have never met and do not know what the other one has taken during the week.
isn’t it weird how even though they aren’t planned, the photos end up looking really good side by side? or do i just think that because that’s the only way i’m seeing them?
regardless, it is such a fun project and a great way for them to collaborate and inspire each other through their work. check out the website here.
this would be such a fun thing to do with a friend- especially one that lives far away! if any of you try it send me your photos :)
postcard collages by wafa, an international artist collective that focuses on collaborative projects. one artist creates something and mails it to another artist to finish, adding an element of surprise and randomness that i think is really interesting.
check out more of their stuff here…it’s pretty sweet.
Surreal, lullingly pleasant, quirky and warm. Were all senses that were provoking the air around me last night.
The night was Vetiver at Johnny Brendas here in Philly.I’ve always been a huge fan of Andy Cabric, I think his voice is something very special and it helps that he can jig around a little with his guitar too!
The evening was magical, especially for a Monday night.
My wandering eye was pinned on this sweet looking folk girl and her beau. How great do they look? I think they must have jumped straight on the bus from Laurel Canyon.
this album isn’t exactly new but i just discovered it and i had to share! the phenomenal handclap band consists of eight core members from new york/brooklyn – it’s sort of a mix of blues, electronic and soul, with a little bit of psychedelic rock – no two songs sound the same.
check out this video for the song “baby” – and tell me you aren’t singing it in your head all day!
the we the free scoop neck tunic is a HUGE hit with fp girls here at the office! we caught seven girls wearing it today! it is super soft and comfy- i’ve been eying it up for a while now, i just can’t decide which color i like best :)
i was looking at some of our stores’ facebook pages the other day and saw that our clarendon store had posted a bunch of really cute pics of themselves trying on some of their favorite new looks from fp! check ‘em out:
