I love the look of this floor mat, and to my delight, Instructables has easy directions for making your own – out of the old seams and waistbands from jeans! What a smart idea!
I am really excited to announce the winner of the Free People Fashion Illustration Contest!
It was wonderful to see how talented all the Free People girls out there are, and it was hard to pick a winner because there were so many amazing illustrations!
And now without further ado, our winner, Katie Rodgers!
You can check out all the entries right here on our Flickr account- they’re awesome, have a look!
And if you didn’t win this time around, don’t lose hope! We have more events in the works. Stay tuned!
I love this cool idea from Merel Karhof! They have built a machine that uses the power of the wind to knit a long scarf along the side of their building. Periodically they take down the long knitting and separate it into scarves, each with a label that tells how long it took to knit and when! Very awesome.

What do you guys think of these creations from Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s recent show in Paris? They’re so dramatic! I can’t get over those unusual materials used to make the overalls! Not to mention the headpieces! I could never wear any of it, but the pieces sure do make for interesting visuals! See many more looks from the show over on Jezebel.
I was poking around on Penguin & Fish (one of my favorites) when I saw her post about illustrator Anneka Tran – responsible for the playful work above. Aren’t they great? I especially love the miso mermaid at the top – apparently she is a favorite of many others as well! Check out the rest of Anneka’s work on her site and her blog.
