Post image for camel time

our august catalog is here! i’ve already told you about two of the models in this book, klara wester and hind sahli, but i failed to mention the other model – the camel!

our team named the beautiful “free people” camel who graces the cover and pages of our catalog janis joplin :)

i think the name suits her, don’t you?

the reason they thought to call her that is because the other two camels, who our team got to ride, were named jimi hendrix and bob marley!

i believe that’s jimi on the left and bob on the right :)

Post image for a few from the black keys

P1010046

i saw the black keys this past friday night at great plaza at penn’s landing in philly. i got there right as they went onstage and by then the venue was packed – my one complaint about this venue is that if you get there late, you will not be able to see the stage.  it’s a great spot though, right on the river, and it was a beautiful night! the next show i’m going to at great plaza is my morning jacket and i will be sure to get there early for that one :)

the best part of the show for me was the beginning – they opened with “thickfreakness,” “girl is on my mind” and “10 a.m. automatic,” all awesome songs. they played a lot from their new album too and it sounded great!

this friday is local natives at first unitarian church yay!

Trend Report

Post image for Trend Report

The sales have hit the stores and the Fall collections are slowly creeping in, already?! Yup I know!

It’s rather exciting though, I really like it when the transition time in fashion comes around. You can start fresh and experiment with new looks.

This weekend I fondled the runway shows to see what was cooking on the trends department. There’s a couple of key looks happening for Fall but the two that I’m liking the most are the “man up” look and the “Long View” as categorized by style.com

The sound of light weight, slightly oversized silk, satin and chiffon shirts combined with blazers, cardigans, waisted belts and the MUST HAVE for FALL long mesh or chiffon skirts.

Girls are going crazy over the maxi skirts and I’m one of them. They give a very elegant silhouette that I’m somewhat addicted to.

Below are some of the lovely skirts that are available at Free People and the looks the designers are running down the runway.

Love all the new fall clothing!
-Aug 04, 2010, 3:57AM
I live in Arizona so everyone thinks I'm crazy when I get excited for coats, jackets, and cardis when its still 100+ degrees out! But who can resist all the cute new trends?

Post image for i like to dream…

here is some imagery, words and music that inspired our new web theme, “magic carpet ride.”

last night i had the most magical dream.

i laid down my head and my eyes filled with beauty. i felt as if i was spinning in the air and when i looked down i was traveling the sky on my magic carpet…

the sun warmed my face as i swept through the air, my long hair glistened in the sun, trailing behind me. my rug danced around the clouds as i struggled to hold on. i was soaring fast, the wind fleeting past me over the sea and mountains, so fast yet so light. the lights of the cities created circles of lights spinning around in my mind. hanging high the stars created enchanting patterns on the streets below.

so far away, yet i could touch the colors of the world.

i was almost engulfed in the waves of the sea below but i flew so fast the breeze took me in. mist in my hair and eyes all the while spinning lights burned into my eyes creating color on the ocean floor.

i woke with the essence of my dream still in the air around me. when i woke everything came to life. deep passionate colors, exquisite tiles… so inspired i reached for my paintbox drawing from the energy, passion and memories of my magical ride.

i started to paint the patterns of the lights below me. i painted the beauty i saw in the moroccan landscape below, the patterns the tiles made in my eyes. the colors of my dream so bright yet muted by the sea. painting with watercolor my magic carpet patterns, persian rugs and textiles.

my dream is to never be forgotten…i will never let go of this magic carpet ride.

- words written by fp girls here at the home office.

and here is a playlist i put together using some of the songs that inspired our creative team, as well as some that this theme brought to my mind.

goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Post image for i saw a dancer

more inspiration for your monday, courtesy of our amazing creative intern mallie.

I saw a dancer…
Flickering across a field, pillow clouds floated above her head as blossomed buds flirted with her tiny, bare feet. Her body became illuminated by the fluorescent light of the shimmering moon.
She danced between the bark of the whispering trees, laughing and humming as nature continued to tickle her toes.
I watched her there, slowly growing calm until she laid her body down and gazed up into the rainbow sky, intertwining her tangled hair amidst the long stems of grass.
And the dancer shut her wild eyes, breathed in the beat of the whimsical rhythm; absorbing the essence of this mystical, magical night.

I love this!
