Post image for february catalog drops tomorrow!

the theme for the catalog is “raw,” heavily inspired by nature – flowers, feathers, shells and raw materials, as well as lace, crochet and fringe.  the above beach shots were very inspirational, as well as the photographer dan martensen’s past shoots at the bonnaroo festival and with fashion muse erin wasson.

i think the end result is lovely!

Post image for eggs with love

how cute is this for a valentine’s day breakfast?!

instructions:

heat up a pan with a little bit of oil. set your cooker to a low heat or you will burn the eggs. place your heart shaped cookie cutter in to the center of the pan, with the smooth side down or you might end up scratching the pan.

crack an egg and pour it in to the center of the cookie cutter. a bit of egg will probably slip under the cutter so hold it down to ensure that most of it doesn’t.

use a spatula to remove any excess egg from the outside of the cookie cutter. remove the cookie cutter and let the egg cook for a few more seconds before removing it with the spatula.

you can use this same method for heart-shaped pancakes too!

Post image for winter wonderland…

i am in awe of these sculptures…the timing is also pretty appropriate, seeing as we’re expecting a bit of snow here in the northeast this weekend…

they’re from the sapporo snow festival, an annual event in japan that attracts about two million people who come to see incredible snow statues and sculptures like these.  this year’s snow festival actually starts today and lasts through thursday february 11.

Post image for an artist we love…

kris chau is one of our fp girls, and she’s also a really talented artist.  she has a show opening tonight at topstitch boutique in philly (54 n. 3rd) called “puppy face” featuring some of her new works, so i thought i’d ask her a few questions!

where do you draw inspiration for your work?
i draw inspiration from the girls around me, lyrics from hilarious songs, my dog, flowers i see, and artists i admire.

who are some of the artists you admire?
yuko shimizu, zeloot, genevieve castree, tim gough, rob sato, ako castuera.

what is your favorite thing to draw?
well ladies of course. ladies, ruffles, shoes, and puppies.

with a full time job here at fp, when do you find time for your artwork?
sigh, that is a question i get quite a bit and i ask myself the same thing. i give up a lot of social things and maybe grooming to do both. my life at free people gives me many opportunities that i will forever be grateful for, and due to my lack of free time making art has become incredibly important to me. it becomes something very serious in a way, i now create things that i do not compromise, i’ve taken a less illustrative and more arty route these days. my position at free people is also creative, so creatively i feel like every week i run a marathon and i am constantly trying to balance it all.

do you listen to music while you draw? what do you listen to?
i listen to a lot of podcasts (thank you fresh air and ira glass i will send you more money) as well as booty shakin jams to keep my spirits up.

what are some of your other hobbies?
gardening and playing with my sweet sweet puppy.

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?
my sweet tim, my sweet puppy, and a lifetime supply of cucumber soda.

if you’re in philly stop by topstitch boutique tonight between 6 and 10pm!  a bunch of us fp girls will be there :)

also check out more of chau’s amazing work on her website!

heather rae -Feb 12, 2010, 12:21AM
Kris Chau! I have an art crush on you that spans the states! You are literally the best.

i'm excited to see her amazing art first hand tonight! :)

An Item Of LOVE

Post image for An Item Of LOVE

I’m head over heels in LOVE with the Lucky Charm Romper. Cleverly enough it can become two outfits for the price of one!

Wear it under denim shorts to reveal a cute peek-a-boo of ditsy print or just on its own- I’ll be wearing mine with barely there blank tights, seductively loose slouchy socks and ankle boots, with a big chunky cardigan, until the sun starts to give warmth.

Oh and keep your eyes open for the piece in the up and coming Feb Catalog- It’s candy to the eyes!
