vintage fp

i’ve been on a search for vintage items lately, and i asked people around the office if they had any old free people items. here are some of the things i’ve found so far…

how cool is this sticker? it looks like it’s from the 70′s but it’s actually from the 90′s.

the one on the left was one of our most popular thermals :)

i’m not sure when exactly this skirt is from but it’s pretty old…i love the cats on the back!
do any of you have any vintage free people items? send me your pics!

I love the thermals! There was a free people top a long time ago, I don't remember when...but it was called the Festival Top, and I am still looking for it today. I ordered it back when it was at FP, but later they told me they were actually out of stock. It was the cutest thing ever and I want it so bad!! If I found somebody with it, especially in eggplant, I would probably beg them to sell it to me.

our new december catalog was photographed by david mushegain, an extremely talented photographer based in new york. our team discovered him when they saw these photos he took of model angela lindvall at her home in topanga california for the july 2009 british vogue. here are some of the photos from that shoot, which served as inspiration behind our december catalog.

Post image for new catalog is here!

the theme for our december catalog (shot in california) was road tripping up the coast from los angeles to san francisco…which could not fit more perfectly with our first book club selection, on the road :)

Love the images. I road tripped up the coast last spring! I read on the Road a few years ago n hold it very dear - I love the beat generation - Kerouac, Ginsberg, the Merry Prankster. Amazing people who truly transformed a nation. xx

squint

one of our readers informed me of this amazing company called squint, located in england, that makes furniture, light fixtures and home accessories. they look like they would be a perfect fit for a free people store! their collections use a mix of contemporary and vintage fabrics, as well as woven english damasks, 19th century french trimmings, and japanese ceremonial kimono silks. i am in love with the dresser…

erickson beamon

Post image for erickson beamon

erickson beamon jewelry is founded and designed by karen erickson, eric erickson and vicki beamon. as the story is told, their jewelry business was born out of necessity. while working with a designer for their premiere apparel runway show they found no one would lend them jewelry to accessorize with, so they strung crystals and beads on suede and launched their first jewelry line. immediately the jewelry took off and was noticed for its fashion forward, edgy quality. their trademark are handcrafted beaded necklaces, which are meticulously assembled by hand using tiny crystals and semi-precious stones. the unique, handmade yet fashionable quality of the pieces has drawn the attention of some of the most well-known designers in the fashion world, who have had erickson beamon design custom pieces for their shows. they have one retail store located in london that is described as “a place where people can have their fantasy come to life in jewels.”
we are thrilled to have their designs here at free people! view our full selection of erickson beamon here.

i’m a vegetarian so i really don’t get too into the whole thanksgiving meal, and i never have the problem of figuring out what to do with lots of leftover turkey, stuffing, etc…but i found this recipe for thanksgiving leftover pizza on savoryreviews.com that sounds really good- even to me. here’s a recipe to give you an idea, but really this is something you can be creative with and come up with your own recipe!

thanksgiving leftover pizza
• 1 biscuit dough (or use store bought pizza crust)
• 1 cup leftover gravy – plus a little extra for drizzling
• 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
• 1 cup leftover stuffing
• 1 cup leftover turkey
• 1 cup cheddar cheese
• 1 cup leftover cranberry sauce
- pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
- in a bowl combine biscuit ingredients and form a dough. next turn the dough out onto a pizza pan. since biscuit dough is fragile and sticky, it is best not to use a pizza peel and stone. form a pizza dough.
- bake the dough for 5-7 minutes, until it starts to get a little firm.
- remove the dough from the oven and coat with the gravy or cranberry sauce- your choice!
- spoon the potatoes, turkey and stuffing onto the pizza. spread it out evenly over the whole pizza.
- top with the cheese (again, optional, and use whatever kind of cheese you like).
- bake in the preheated oven for 12-18 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.
- remove the pizza from the oven and let cool for a minute before cutting. serve with a side of gravy for dipping or with dollops of cranberry sauce.

- enjoy!

ice ice baby

philly’s own outdoor olympic-sized skating rink, the blue cross riverrink, reopens today for three months of ice skating enjoyment! located at penn’s landing (where market st. meets columbus blvd.) the ice rink is right on the delaware river and has beautiful views of the ben franklin bridge and philly skyline. plus, if you go on friday or saturday nights between 8:30pm and 1:00am, there’s a live dj and/or karaoke.
even if you’re not great at ice skating, it’s a ton of fun to try and a great workout as well :)

so so so fun. i love the river rink!

no, it isn’t thursday. but did you really think we’d miss the weekly poll?
last week i asked which holiday outfit you loved the most and the winner was pretty clear…the vast majority of the votes went to the cabin fever look (which was also my favorite – i just ordered the faux fur earflap hat…i can’t wait to get it)!
this week i was looking at all of the cute, colorful coin purses and pouches we have…they’d be such a great gift for friends and family! which one do you like best?

Post image for happy thanksgiving!

this is from a few years ago but it’s pretty funny/interesting…
apparently, the person responsible for photocopying for a penn psychology 101 class took the liberty of adding the instructions “draw a turkey” to the last page, and the results were scanned and posted on flickr.
here are some of my favorites:

and here are some numbers from the results:
9 hungry folks drew a cooked butterball turkey
5 had their turkey saying “eat me!” … but 6 had the turkey protest “don’t eat me!”
17 turkeys were gobble, gobble-ing
21 wished a happy thanksgiving
8 wore a hat
6 found themselves with a few more legs than you might expect
108 were “left handed” … 72 were “right handed” … although I counted freehand-drawn hands too, and wasn’t very exact about how I chose some of the blobbier ones.
click here to see them all.
hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday :)
