good morning! let’s get right to today’s poll, shall we? last week i asked about some of our army surplus styles and the winner, just by ten votes, was the platoon jacket!
this week i want to ask about some of our adorable printed bralettes! we’ve got some great new ones in romantic, pretty prints just in time for valentine’s day. and they look super cute peeking out from under tank tops and sheer tees! so which one do you love most?
the floral lurex bandeau:
or the printed lace racerback bralette:
when we saw how amazing your “fp me” photos were that you posted on facebook, we knew that we had to do something special with them. we are so inspired by seeing how real girls wear free people clothing and love seeing your individual styles. so we are doing it again – this time with a new twist! we will choose some photos to be featured on freepeople.com!
to be considered, please submit photos of yourself showing how you style fp pieces. upload them to the fan page wall on our facebook page between now and 2/12 and label them “fp me”! photos chosen will be featured on freepeople.com later this month.
* also, please note – if you already posted pics for the last fp me, you will be considered for fp me part two, so no need to resubmit them.
can’t wait to see all your photos!
ok so these are kinda similar to the butterfly DIY i posted last week (here) but i wanted to share them because i think they’d be such a cute project for valentine’s day! as decoration or a gift for your loved ones…and it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard to do. you could follow the instructions from last week’s post, or if you want to make something that looks more like these, i think you could just glue the hearts right onto the backing paper, leaving some flat and some only glued on one side to get that cool fluttering effect :)
these images are from sarah and bendrix’s etsy shop – check out more here.
this is an old pair of jeans that i love, but they’ve got three holes in them. i was okay with that for a while but now - maybe because it’s so cold out – i decided it was time to patch them up.
here are some images i found around the web and saved as inspiration for my project:
i really liked the idea of using different shades of denim and prints with blue in them…
this patch of fabric is actually the inside of a pocket from an old pair of jeans, but i love the way it looks – and it fit perfectly over the large hole in the knee of my jeans!
i used scraps of old denim for the other patches:
and here’s the finished product!
i think they look much better. the only thing i’m not sure about is whether i should do something to the bottoms or not – i might attempt something like this (the genetic patched flare):
…but i can’t decide. what do you guys think?
As of late rainbow hair has become a massive trend, I’m constantly stumbling upon this craze on the World Wide Web-bloggers are going crazy for it, Stylists and Magazines are crazy over it and moreover I’m CrAzY over it!
It doesn’t help when I sit next to a FP girl here at the office that has a beautiful faded pink strand in her golden hair. Me want and Me like!

last week i was over in the area where our visual display team works on the amazing creations that you see in our stores, and i spotted boxes and boxes of these colorful little creatures…
so what are they? our new store displays for spring! here’s a look at the installation in our king of prussia, pa store:
i love it! our visual display team always does such an amazing job :)
not everyone likes valentines day, and it can especially be a tough time if you’re alone. so for tunesday today, i put together a playlist of some “anti love songs” for anyone out there who just isn’t feeling the love :)
stay tuned for a love song playlist in a couple weeks!
