who says you have to carve a pumpkin?
i’m not good with knives, so i really love these creative ideas for decorating pumpkins that don’t involve carving :)

pumpkin penguin! for a step by step look at how its made, click here.

these stenciled pumpkins can be done with stencils like the ones found here.

accessorize your pumpkin with beads, jewels and charms!

decorate your pumpkin with lace patterns! this can be done really easily with paper doilies, as demonstrated here.

finally, decoupage your pumpkin with whatever you want…i really like the edgar allen poe theme in this one.
i want to try all of the above…if any of you have some cool pumpkin decorating or carving ideas and pictures, send them my way!

oo! i think you'd get a kick outta this. i paint pumpkins every year for a group called "andys pumpkin express", to help raise money for juvenile diabetes. these are some of the ones i did for the past 2 years, enjoy! http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/againurg053.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/andypumpkin2.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/earlyfall.jpg

another trend we’re excited about right now is shoes in all different shades of brown…whether they’re hazel, chestnut, chocolate, tan or caramel, brown shoes look good with any fall look!
i was inspired to search for brown shoes around the office and found quite a few…so here’s a look at office style, brown shoe edition…

can you guess what the weather is like in philly today?
hunter boots are the best.

last week i asked you all to send in some of your halloween costume ideas and pictures. i’ve gotten some great ideas so far, but i’m giving you more time to send ideas and pics, seeing as halloween is this weekend. so for now, here are some of the ideas from our readers and home office employees to get the creative juices flowing…
oh and the rad robot costume was one of our home office employees last year…can’t wait to see what people have in store for this year!
homemade raggedy ann and andy costumes – ann hair was done by tying red yarn to a filigree-styled headband and bowing it at top. only cost was matching socks ($5) and sailor hat ($5) – from janella
for halloween, i’m going to the beaux arts ball here in lexington (the hood internet is going to be there!) & i’m going as a g lion. i spray-painted a party dress gold today and made a gold petticoat to go underneath, as well as spray-painted a tail and ears. i have really african-inspired earrings and lots of gold makeup, and i’m going to tease my hair to no end! last year i was amelia earhart, before that laura ingalls wilder, marie antoinette and elizabeth I. loving those historical female figures! – from leslie
my boyfriend and i are going as peace and quiet: i’ll be a hippie and he’ll be a mime! – from alyssa
i’m being a star trek geek! – anonymous
wednesday adams – from employee
little bo peep and her sheep – from employee and friends
as for me…i’m going to be at a pearl jam show on halloween, so i’m taking that opportunity to dress in 90s grunge gear…my inspiration is rayanne graff from my so called life.

some of you might be familiar with the awesome blog that is summer teeth…it is full of inspirational and fashionable images that always amaze me. we love it so much we decided to ask the awesome person behind the blog, dana, to do a guest post for our blog. but first, we wanted to know about her likes, dislikes, and more…read below to learn more about dana and stay tuned for her blog post later this week!

what is your first memory of free people?
age 15 or so. falling in love with, having to have, couldn’t leave behind so many of the free people tank tops and sweaters that i had a pile of about 20 in my arms. i was at the neighborhood loehmann’s (a discount mecca for the fashion-frenzied) and was dropping bits of clothing as i walked around the store.
what is the inspiration behind your blog?
my blog, as its been said before by many bloggers, started as a place to productively and effectively organize the thousands of images i had been accumulating in a few ‘inspiration’ folders on my computer. i comb the internet like a mad woman, and will save up to 20 photos to that folder a day. i had to find something that would make all the procrastinating from school work worthwhile! that, and for the last two years or so, i’ve been really trying to pick up photography. the best thing i’ve discovered for expanding your own aesthetic is by being exposed to the aesthetic of others. the blog was a way for me to compile this, and create a sort of inspiration board day by day.
what is your current state of mind?
expectant. i’m heading to a dirty projectors concert here in baltimore later tonight!
who are your heroes?
people who have the courage to go their own way, explore, be their own person, discover or at least hope to discover what makes them tick, and pursue it.
if you could choose what to come back to life as, what would you be?
this is a hard question! maybe a beautiful perennial flower. then, i could hide underground in the warm dirt during cold, wet months, regroup, and leap to life again every spring season. though the dying every winter thing might be tricky…
what or who is your greatest love?
john cusack, say anything.
name one thing necessary to your happiness.
things to look forward to (whether it’s a concert, going shopping, meeting up with friends, cooking some fancy and over-my-head recipe… etc.)
what do you hate the most?
cheese on pizza. and musicians who look horridly bored when performing in front of a crowd.
what would the name of your band be and what genre? what instruments do you play in this band?
summer teeth. oops! that’s the name of my blog… oops! that’s the name of a wilco album! actually, i really don’t know what i’d call it, but i think i’d design the sets and try and have a hand in the wardrobe of the band. i’m not so musically-endowed. But i do like to be surrounded by music.
what color are you?
iridescent. depends on which angle and in what light you look!
what is your motto?
don’t feel guilty for being a dreamer in a harsh world.
what is the one article of clothing you can’t live without?
this is much too hard. can i give three articles of clothing for this fall season instead? i’d say: well-fitting, worn-in jeans, my perforated oxford flats, and chunky knits (socks… sweaters… scarves).

devendra banhart – what will we be

what will we be is devendra banhart’s seventh studio album, but it is his first major label release, and has drawn mixed reviews from critics and fans who were expecting more of the raw, bohemian weirdness that banhart is known for. the overall sound of what will we be has a clarity unlike his previous albums and the vocals are smooth and relaxed, but the freak-folk moments and international influences are still there. the album starts out strong – the first few songs are like a breath of fresh air and the first single, “baby”, is addicting. “rats” is unexpected but interesting, starting out slow and then rocking out like a zeppelin tune…but for me, towards the end, the album sort of lost its excitement.

listen to the album here and let me know if you agree or disagree!

we hope to see you there!

we just posted a pic of her wearing free people a couple of weeks ago…and here she is again, wearing one of my fave new we the free shirts!

you can find the shirt on our website here.

after 42 years of sports and musical history, this week the beloved philly venue will host its final concerts before being torn down early next year. pearl jam will play tuesday, wednesday, friday and saturday night, and rumors are swirling about possible guest appearances on the final night. the spectrum is known amongst performers for its excellent acoustics, and some of the most legendary musical acts of the ’60s and ’70s have played there- including led zeppelin, the doors, jimi hendrix, pink floyd, the who, eric clapton, bob dylan, neil young, the beach boys, frank sinatra, the jackson five, elvis, the band and bob marley and the wailers. the grateful dead played there 53 times, more than any other musical act.
i’ll be attending all four shows this week and will be sure to report back on the blog!
here are some of the greats who played the spectrum…
