I agree we cameragirl. For these reasons, I love Free People.

woah... after all that ...I just wanted to state i have been a longtime FP lover. I STILL OWN AND WEAR my first FP dress from 13- 15 years ago! (Someday i'll photo it and send it) .It's timeless, as i have found most FP clothing to be, or at least the pieces i have chosen. An example:the WTF Lace up Henley is like a favorite top i wore in high school.I do not think i have thrown out or given away any of my FP sweaters, tops, dresses, etc. that i have, and i can think of only once or twice having to mend anything, and it was because my daughter who is bigger than me was wearing my clothing. Yes, she became a FP lover also at an early age, with tanks, sweaters, tights, jackets too. 15 years wear is definite quality, not flimsy. I certainly cannot come near buying everything i want, but i also don't have time to actually sew everything unique that i would like. FP is as close as i can get to actual handmade without the work, cost, search time. Thank you FP for the discount, it comes in handy. P.S. love Urban and Anthro too, there is no age on clothing- i exposed my daughter and her friend to them as well at least 10 years ago...

Post image for iceland destination: the blue lagoon

i am sooo jealous because while they were in iceland our team got to visit the blue lagoon! one of iceland’s top attractions, the blue lagoon is a natural hot spring of geothermal seawater that is probably not only incredibly relaxing, but its really good for your skin too. the lagoon is situated in a lava field, and the water temperature ranges from 98-102 degrees! it sounds, and looks, heavenly. plus there’s a restaurant and hotel there that overlook the lagoon!









images, except for top two, via the blue lagoon website. can someone take me there now, please?

I have been there on 2006 and it is phenominal exciting, enjoyed the nature and the high cost of what they had to serve turist with. Not much, but that doesn't matter. It's just something to talk about. I loved it!!!
maureen -Aug 23, 2012, 1:32PM
Does anyone know what is the name of the hotel there and how much does it cost a night?

Post image for wednes-diy

for today’s DIY i want to show you guys how to make snowflake panels like the ones in our new store displays! it’s actually really not as difficult as it looks, it just requires a lot of patience and good cutting skills :)


image via design sponge.

these panels immediately reminded me of a DIY i saw a while ago on design sponge – the only difference being the material.  our team actually made ours out of paper first, and then had them laser cut out of felt.


what you need: paper or felt or whatever material you want to use (this is a great way to re-use old scrap paper or junk mail!), scissors, and glue or tape!

start by making as many paper snowflakes as you desire, in varying sizes, patterns and shapes – because no two snowflakes are alike ;) if you’ve never made a paper snowflake before, check out this tutorial.






once you have a bunch of snowflakes, start gluing them together where they overlap, alternating shapes and sizes as you please.




i’m going to keep adding to mine over the next few weeks!

for best results, hang your panel in front of a window and enjoy the patterns the sun leaves on the floor :)

Tasha -Nov 29, 2011, 2:39PM
I love this so much. Where can I get mine laser cut into felt?
Caroline -Aug 27, 2011, 5:52AM
What I would like to know looking at these images is how did you cover the seats. As we have the same ones but in brown (fake) leather and I would love to put a nice fabric on mine.

Post image for nothing short of magical

the dramatic landscape of iceland was the perfect backdrop for the final chapter of our november catalog, wrap me in a sweater.  rocky cliffs, open fields, wild horses, snow-capped glaciers, icy blue water that blends into the sky and a dreamy mist settling over it all…

…these photos taken by our producer don’t even look real.

approaching iceland.




i love this photo of our creative director.

















claudia -Dec 15, 2010, 10:15PM
Wow!!!Beautiful pictures...makes me want to go to photography school and of course to Iceland.
Roxanne -Nov 20, 2010, 10:46AM

Post image for november catalog chapter six: the photographer

as mentioned, chapter six of our november book was shot by eric kvatek.  whenever i find out who is shooting our catalogs i immediately look up their websites to check out their work, because our team always picks such amazing photographers to work with.  well this one is no different- here’s some of his photography that i love.



wrap me in a sweater


eric also shot our october 2008 catalog which featured we the free and is one of my personal favorites:



i think he does an amazing job integrating the models and clothing and the surrounding landscape in his work.

here he is with model jessica mau in iceland during the shoot (via his blog):


i love these off duty shots he took of jessica mau and julia hafstrom:
