Welcome to our Thursday poll! Last week we checked out some of our hoodies, and our favorite by far was the We The Free Thermal Hoodie! It got 41% of the vote with 259 people picking it as their favorite!
It might be because it’s been raining all week, keeping me in pants, but I have been eyeing our shorts a lot lately! The jean shorts in particular! Check them out with me!
First scope out our FP Acid Wash Cut Off Short.
These gorgeous images were all taken using infrared photography, which uses an image sensor or film that is sensitive to infrared light, as opposed to normal visible light. The way various objects reflect infrared light is quite different from how they reflect visible light, which is why the green on the trees turns white, and the sky looks much darker. Learn more about infrared photography here and here!

I am obsessed with these collages by Sarah Ogren! I love animal heads on human bodies. I don’t know why, they’re just really appealing – don’t you agree? Don’t miss Sarah’s blog, and check out her Etsy shop too!

I don’t quite understand how, but apparently this cool garden on top of an aquarium serves as the filter for the water! I already thought it was a great design just from the photo, but when I read that I was extra-impressed! It’s so pretty! This idea was by Benjamin Grandorge, with some help from Duende Studio.

How would you like to live in one of these painted apartment buildings in Russia? I love all the eye popping colors! Check out this blog for many more great photos! I think my car needs a paint job like this… Via.
Ever since Lark About posted a few shots of British supermodel Jean Shrimpton the other day, I have been on a kick, collecting images of her! They’re great old fashion photos, and she has such a classic look! Love!
I’m really excited to try out this tutorial from ThreadBanger- it shows how to knit your own bikini top! They go along very slowly and explain clearly what to do! The only thing is that there is a quick advertisement in the middle, but it’s worth it because the tutorial is good. If you need a little basic knitting instruction first, check out our learn-to-knit videos here, here, and here!
Our friend Lisa at Bazaarvoice, (the company that hosts our product reviews for our site,) used this fun generator at Wordle to make the word collage above. She took all of the product reviews on our website from the last few months or so, and entered them in the generator. The more a word was used, the bigger it appears in the image! It’s pretty fun! Plus, it made a cool visual of what our reviewers are saying.
Use the generator here to make your own word collages! It would be fun to take all the text on your Facebook profile, for example, and see what words come up the most!
These collages by Sarah Bridgland really caught my eye! To make them she uses all kinds of discarded paper, stationary, old books, newspapers, comics, you name it. The old staple boxes used for these particular pieces are really cool too!
I’ve enjoyed browsing through Polanoid, where these pictures are from, for a good part of this morning! Polanoid is in the process of building the biggest Polaroid-picture-collection on the planet to celebrate the magic of instant photography. I don’t know that it beats Flickr, but I like it! Check it out if you are a fan of photos!
