Post image for thursday poll – edition 83

hey everyone! sorry for the delay in posting today… i spent the morning in the hospital with a broken ankle :( but that wont stop me from posting the thursday poll!

so last week i asked about some of our cute sandals and the results were very close between the tahoe bootie, mindy beaded, and folklore sandals, but the tahoe bootie sandal came out on top.  those are my favorite too! i think i definitely might have to get them.

this week i’ve been eyeing up our rompers, and i want to know which one you guys like best…

the crochet romper:

the cat and mouse romper:


the linen corset romper

Post image for instant love

when i posted the photos yesterday of our chicago visual mit’s puppy wearing an fp scarf, a reader wrote in “ohhh polaroids. when will they be back?” funny you should ask…i just heard earlier this week that the impossible project (which has been working tirelessly to bring back production of polaroid film) has encountered some problems that are delaying the project’s timetable.  they were planning on holding a press conference this past monday to announce what the future holds for polaroid film, but that event has been postponed until march.  i will keep you all posted!

in the meantime, check out the impossible shop where you can still find rare analog polaroid products.

the above images are from the flickr group “save polaroid”, which consists of thousands of self-portraits sent in by polaroid film lovers in an attempt to save the special film.

i'm the employee who sent in those polaroids, i actually used the new fujifilm camera that can be purchased at urban outfitters, the polaroid film is about the size of a credit card and the film can also be purchased at urban! its totally available! as far as the old polaroid film goes, i miss it, but this keeps me happy in the meantime. :)

found this a few days ago.... not a huge fan of Gaga but Polaroid has a very smart marketing team :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTVLVoepKRM

Post image for a touch of pink

you may recognize these images from our first episode of home sweet home that was on the blog a little while back.  i came back to them recently and wanted to draw out a great decorating tip that might inspire your own efforts at home!

in case you didn’t see it, another fp girl and I went to the home of our director of design and image and took a little tour of her home. one thing that really stood out to me about how her house was decorated was the use of pink tape all over!  it is such a cute idea and definitely adds that free people touch to a wall of photos that might otherwise look a little bit plain.

i love how it looks against that blue paint!

if any of you have fun, free people inspired decorating ideas, please do share :)

that is such a cute idea! I love hangin pictures and doing cute stuff too.I'm moving so maybe i will try that also.Because i was using double sided tape such a cuter idea to use colored tape.Thanks

that's a really great idea. i have a big screaming bare wall that i have been trying to figure out what to do. love the pink, but love the scarf idea too! it will really add some color!

i found this photography project the other day and it reminds me a lot of the WAFA mail art postcards i posted this morning so i thought it would make a cool DIY project for today! this is something that i definitely want to try- all you need is a camera and a friend!

every week, photographers ian land and caroline hancox each take a photograph and email it to each other.  they then create a diptych of the photos and display them on a website, taking turns deciding which photo goes on the left and which one goes on the right. to make things more interesting they live 114 miles apart, have never met and do not know what the other one has taken during the week.

week16

week10

week 3

isn’t it weird how even though they aren’t planned, the photos end up looking really good side by side? or do i just think that because that’s the only way i’m seeing them?

regardless, it is such a fun project and a great way for them to collaborate and inspire each other through their work.  check out the website here.

this would be such a fun thing to do with a friend- especially one that lives far away! if any of you try it send me your photos :)

postcard collages by wafa, an international artist collective that focuses on collaborative projects.  one artist creates something and mails it to another artist to finish, adding an element of surprise and randomness that i think is really interesting.

check out more of their stuff here…it’s pretty sweet.

oh and wafa stands for we are f—ing awesome :)

how cute are these pics? they were sent to me by the visual mit at our chicago store, who says:

i went home recently and dressed my little yorkie-poo in a free people scarf, and he ran around in it for hours it was so comfy to him!

i love it! thanks for sharing :)

Wrecked Stellar -Feb 24, 2010, 7:59AM
Too cute! I'd be running around too trying to show off my pretty, cozy scarf!

The photo of the window sill reminds me of a shot I love from "The Virgin Suicides" which I was just re-watching http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pjDTl8xJS5Y/SKTr4J2NjmI/AAAAAAAAAQA/ENfxlCjVX5M/s1600-h/333hoc2.jpg (not my blog)

Post image for i still miss you kurt.

news came out last week that universal studios is finally moving forward with a biopic about kurt cobain, just days before what would have been his 43rd birthday (this past saturday).

who do you think should play him?

Mary Taylor -Mar 04, 2010, 2:19PM
Hands down Joe Anderson. It was said earlier, but it can't be said enough. He was in Across The Universe and even did a movie called "The 27 Club" I most definitely think he can handle the intensity of the role, he looks and sounds identical to Kurt, it's almost scary. Michael Pitt played a roll similar to Kurt in Gus Van Sant's "Last Days." He doesn't look like Kurt but can handle dark characters better than any other actor I know, and he's not mainstream which would be key for this movie. You can't have someone with a status like Brad Pitt's playing Kurt Cobain or it will not tribute him the way he deserves. But my vote is for Joe Anderson. If he doesn't take the role, I don't know who else would.
chantel -Feb 25, 2010, 11:26PM
WOW, my heart sinks..that's a lovely picture of him. He was such an amazing artist. I don't know who should play him. Honestly no one compares.

Surreal, lullingly pleasant, quirky and warm. Were all senses that were provoking the air around me last night.

The night was Vetiver at Johnny Brendas here in Philly.I’ve always been a huge fan of Andy Cabric, I think his voice is something very special and it helps that he can jig around a little with his guitar too!

The evening was magical, especially for a Monday night.

My wandering eye was pinned on this sweet looking folk girl and her beau. How great do they look? I think they must have jumped straight on the bus from Laurel Canyon.

A Perfect folk outfit don’t you think?

this album isn’t exactly new but i just discovered it and i had to share! the phenomenal handclap band consists of eight core members from new york/brooklyn – it’s sort of a mix of blues,  electronic and soul, with a little bit of psychedelic rock – no two songs sound the same.

check out this video for the song “baby” – and tell me you aren’t singing it in your head all day!
