“don’t cry because it’s over. smile because it happened.” – dr. seuss
what was your favorite dr. seuss book? mine was always the cat in the hat…i loved thing 1 and thing 2 :)
the first music festival of the season is just a couple of weeks away! this year a couple of our fp girls heading down to austin for SXSW and we’re going to be bringing you the SXSW experience …fp style!
i thought for tunesday today i’d feature one of their must-see bands for this year, white denim! they saw this garage/experimental rock trio perform last year and loved them, so they can’t wait to check them out again this year. white denim is also a hometown favorite, being from austin. they’ll be playing this year at emo’s annex, thursday march 18 at 1:00am.
i just listened to their album “fits,” released in october of ’09, and was really impressed- and supposedly they put on a sick live show.
listen to a couple of their songs and let me know what you think!
you may remember i posted some photos not too long ago giving you a little sneak peak at a fun new video we did for the blog that follows one of our fp girls around at work for a few days to give you a little glimpse into her world. well today i’ve got the video for you!
i’m very excited to bring you a (few) day(s) in the life of a free people designer!
song is “end of the world” by shocking pinks.
i know you’ve all been asking and waiting for it…well here it is! the march calendar for you to download! just click the image to go to our flickr page and get the large size. enjoy :)
oh and in case you missed january and february, you can find those on our flickr page (in fp downloads) or in the post here.

i posted one of tessar lo’s paintings a while back…but i keep coming back to his work so i wanted to post some more. i love the elephants that are in a lot of his work!
view more of his work here.
One of our creative’s put together a lovely snapshot of each girl that categorizes each of our trends. So now you can put a visual image to each name.The girls are all from past catalogs, which is even better!
I thought they were kinda cool and a good way to adapt to the looks in the future. So here you go. Maybe they’ll stick in your mind too.
Candy = the lacey, pretty girl
Meadow = the bohemian girl
Ginger = the body con girl
Sandy = the beach girl
Lou = the boy girl
Which girl do you think you are?
We’d love to know!
“My turquoise ring was made and purchased in my hometown…from the very rare star turquoise. I may have the only one of its kind.
The other is a wolf ring purchased in the company of my friend and co-worker kris chau whilst perusing the shops on chestnut st in philadelphia.
The silver buckle-y bracelet was a thrift shop find (also in philadelphia) thanks to the good eye of my friend kim williams.
The leather tooled bracelet and I love america bracelet are both from thrift shops? I think.
And my ribbon/braided bracelets are there because I am constantly wishing for peace on earth and endless love and I decided I needed to make them come true
By placing wishes on material things that will fall off and therefore render my dream true. Though if I just shared my dreams out loud, did I void them? “:(
