coffee filter prom dress!

Aimee Kick, an aspiring designer from Missouri, created the prom dress above for herself out of coffee filters! I think it looks awesome – I love it! I once made myself a dress out of duct tape for a party – not a very original idea, but it was really fun! If I ever find any pictures of it I’ll post them here, though my duct-tape dress wasn’t half as good as Aimee’s coffee-filter dress! Have you guys ever made clothes out of unusual materials? How did it turn out?

coloring shoes

Look closely at these shoes by Lauren Milroy. They’re made of colored pencils! How cool!

These are fun! Not for people who shuffle their feet, unless you want to draw on everything you walk on! :)

I am in love with the color palette of Camilla & Marc‘s Fall ’09 collection! The shoes are fabulous too! What do you guys think? Head over to the always-awesome KnightCat if you want to see more photos from the show!

Pretty much all of Jane South‘s work totally amazes me because it’s made primarily of paper. Yes, paper! They’re visually interesting enough on their own, that just makes them even more impressive! Check out Jane’s site for more incredible art!

I adore your blog! Where do you find all those great artists? I would like to know how to make something like this myself and decorate my wall with it. ;)

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.

Now have a look at the FP Studded Denim Cut Off Short!

Next up is the Blank Studded Short.

So what do you guys think? Which pair of shorts do you prefer?

all very cute shorts. but i must say - there are few things that would be easier to DIY than these items! :)

Boy, if I buy the shorts, can I get the legs to go along with it?

infrared trees

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!

hammer time

This will wake you up right! A group of dancers wearing hammer pants rush into a random store and surprise everyone with an awesome dance!

That made my morning, thanks! I am old enough to have worn a pair of 'hammer pants' (well, in grade 8). Some of the customers at the beginning look scared!

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!

floating gardens

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…

Hi there! I really like the Free People blog and I love all the cool ideas that are posted in it. Since a lot of the blog-items show artwork and creative projects, I figured you might also like the artwork of my father, who is specialized in trompe-l'oeils (French word for illusions created by paintings). Check out his website for all the beautiful projects he has already realized. Unfortunately, this Dutch website hasn't been translated in English yet. But most of the pictures, which you can see in the section called 'open werken', speak for themselves. I especially like his first elevator-project (lift I), the second toilet-project (toilet II) and the guestroom-project (logeerkamer). I'm not trying to get a chance for free publication this way, I just hope that other people can enjoy my father's artwork! http://www.interieurillusies.com/index.php Kind regards from a Belgian free-people-aholic!

Last night our Free People kickball team had it’s final game of the season. Though we lost to Urban Outfitters with a score of 8 to 7, the FP team competed admirably, and had a lot of fun!

Some members of the team get psyched for the game!

Heather gives the ball a good hard kick.
