when we posted photos of our new costa mesa, california, store the other day, you may have noticed these beautiful fabric-covered vases sitting on some of the shelves. i loved them so i did a little digging to find out how are display team made them…

our team used large aluminum vases cast in india – but you can pick up some large inexpensive flower pots at your local gardening shop.

india

next you need some pretty fabric. our team used antique turbans, bridal blouses and quilts they picked up over in india. check out vintage stores and flea markets for pretty vintage fabrics that work just as well :)

fabric

now all you need is some mod podge, which you can order online or get from an arts & crafts store. use the mod podge to coat the fabric so it stays on the vases.  use the fabric however you want- i think it would look cool if you cut different fabrics into strips and collaged them onto the vase for a quilted effect!

What vendor makes these bags? I LOVE them and want something very similar for our wedding favors!
abby -Jul 02, 2010, 7:30PM
first i cut the straps off, then i sew the ends so it doesn't fray. Then i sew a zipper on the opening, tie the strap into a bow, and sew it on to the bag. Finally i put a pillow inside and it makes a beautiful pillow case!

Post image for through our concept intern’s eyes…

I made a collage using photos of scenes and images found around the office. The swatches of embroidery, illustrations, and inventive assortments of trinkets fuse into a colorful blur when I walk past each desk and I hope that the collage recreates that fleeting moment of wonder for you.

Hi there! Not too long ago I was sitting in the same position as many of you, clicking open BLDG 15 and hungrily peaking into the community that is Free People through a film of curiosity soaked in lilac hopes, blue intrigue, and yellow aspirations that blended together until I saw the letters Free People tie-dyed in my dreams. I performed my ritual click on the BLDG 15 link, only to see the opportunity of interning for my favorite company unravel before me; fast forward two months and here I am. Every day this week I arrived home at seven o’clock and collapsed, exhausted, on the sofa, to the confusion of Rambo, a furry black thing with soulful eyes…only to wake up the next morning eager to do it all again.

The first day that I wandered around the office, several vibrant FP girls told me that someone in the building is always with a camera, and everyone loves having their picture taken, even if they claim otherwise. It was this fun, open friendliness that convinced me to shed my hesitant dance in the isle between “pods” and feel at ease when propelling my feet into every workspace where smiling face upon smiling face greeted me and insisted that I click away. What I have enjoyed the most in my first few days in Building 15 is how at every corner, in any nook and every cranny, there is a treasure to be discovered.

I have spotted a streamer cascading from the ceiling, marveled at the aged walls and how much character oozes from their imperfection, and became inspired each time that my eyes landed on the mixed samples draped across walls or gathered in soft heaps of leather and shine on the floor. Perhaps my favorite adventure yet has been the journey on which I embark each time that I explore the workspaces of the individuals whose instinctive creativity drives the company.

101_1949

When passing by desks, I feel as if I am peering through a window into each employee’s life – their haven – learning what inspires and relaxes them. I have witnessed loose pages of artwork; butterflies plucked from their paper origins and perched over organic plants; scraps of dazzling fabric used as a refuge for pins.

Everywhere I turn waits something magical.

“the Let’s Colour Project is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint. a mission to spread colour all over the world.”

i am so in awe of these images! this project is amazing- so far they have transformed spaces in brazil, india, france and the united kingdom, and plans are in the works for many other locations. the above images are of the progress so far in favela santa marta in rio de janeiro.

there’s also a lot of cool stuff on their blog, like this:

berlin-art2-577x769

a bunch of cyclists in berlin splashed 13 gallons of paint on the road in one of the city’s busiest intersections, and the bikes, cars and trucks that drove through created colorful splashes across the street. i love it.

The bodysuit!

Post image for The bodysuit!

The new bodysuit trend is making me go giddy. I’m a huge fan of the bodysuit. It’s just so darn easy and Incredible if you want to show off your figure! I went through a stage when I was 18 of watching Fame and Desperately Seeking Susan with my friends like, nonstop. We would try and imitate the wardrobes then rock out onto the streets thinking we were the coolest EVER! Embarrassing I know, but everyone I guess has been there.

 I love that this 80’s look has made a comeback over the last couple of years and has managed to stick. This time around there’s a fresh new look going on. Sensual lace bodysuits will add a WOW factor to any outfit.

 Many girls wear them with shorts to give an easy slim line look.

They also become great layering pieces too. You can wear then under vests like a second skin. They hold you in well so why not! And give a great little detail around your neckline.

I think this summer I will be wearing my floral bandeau under mine with denim cut offs. DONE!
