I liked seeing all the different age groups and the clothes that were paired for them. I want to see more of this.

I live in one and absolutely love it! I was fortunate enough to find one that was built well and maintained.
claudia -Mar 02, 2011, 2:07PM
these were invented by buckminster fuller, who had amazing, forward-thinking ideas about sustainability, urban crowding, and eco-preservation. he used these structures because triangles are the cheapest, strongest, most versatile shape to build with--not like the rectangles we mostly see today.

i didn’t have a chance to do a diy project this week, so i thought i’d share some diy inspiration from around the web that i have saved and would like to try at some point…i’ve got my work cut out for me!

make your own hangers simply by gathering sticks and twisting hooks into them!  this is exactly the kind of makeover my closet needs for spring- these hangers are perfect for little strappy tanks that slide off the sides of normal hangers! plus i always love the rustic feel of using bits of nature inside the home.

for an added touch, paint the sticks!

i found these sweet rings on etsy and i think they’d be pretty easy to make on your own! cut a thin slice of wood from a stick and either draw on it with a sharpie, OR – wouldn’t it be cute to carve the initials into it like you would with an actual tree?

Post image for Our wholesale team at Coterie NYC

The Free People Wholesale team is at Coterie in NYC, it’s a massive trade show filled with exciting labels.  Department stores such as Saks, Harvey Nicholas and many other cute little boutiques and department stores from around the world visit to see what labels they would like to buy and showcase.

The wholesale team set up a beautiful booth accessorized with ipads so customers can view our digital Fp lifestyle and beautiful fashion forward lookbooks. Whilst I was there, I snapped the style of our girls. Don’t they look adorable!?

Post image for just kids: part four

i finished just kids somewhere over the midwest, during my flight to san francisco. if you’re familiar with the story or with robert mapplethorpe, you know that it is not the happiest of endings, but instead of leaving me with teary eyes and an empty pit in my stomach, i felt hopeful and inspired.

to me this book was not about what patti and robert went through or the careers they found success in, it was about their relationship. two people who could only be described as soulmates, who found each other and through each other, found what they were meant to do with their lives. and while their paths split and they went in different directions, they were still joined at the heart.

it reminded me very much of the quote I posted a few weeks ago:
“a true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. but to live with a soul mate forever? nah. too painful. soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. a soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, and make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.”

Post image for vintage tees are here!

if there was one article of vintage women’s clothing i was going to collect, it would be vintage tshirts. i love them and can never get enough…  each one is a little piece of history.  the ones i own each have a story behind them that makes them incredibly special… a bar in somer’s point NJ where my parents used to hang out, a tom petty shirt from his “last dance with mary jane” tour that a boyfriend gave to me and is full of holes , a pink floyd tee i found in brooklyn, and my favorite- and perhaps the most random – a tshirt my uncle picked up in wyoming years ago that ended up in my mom’s possession, and now mine.

so when i found out we’d be selling vintage t-shirts as part of our vintage loves collection, you can imagine how excited i was. our vintage buyer did an amazing job hand picking these rare and perfectly broken in tshirts… i’ll admit it, i bought two the moment they went on sale… check them all out here!

you should also check out our homepage right now, it’s pretty neat :)

Free people honestly are so greedy i am a vintage shop owner and i know how much shops buy these for and it makes me sick that they sell them for this price, sham on you free people
laura -Feb 26, 2011, 10:42AM
i went to purchase a few of these yesterday but all the ones i wanted are gone! is there a plan to consistently get more vintage tees to sell or is this just a one time thing. i love them!
