These fancy cupcakes were photographed by Therese Aldgard and styled by Lisa Edsalv. They were reportedly inspired by Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin and Betsey Johnson, but I couldn’t find any shots of the Betsey Johnson ones, rather I found the Agent Provocateur cupcakes on Lisa’s site. So perhaps my source had it mixed up! At any rate, I would love to have a print of one of these photos! The Chanel or Louboutin shots especially would spruce my apartment right up! After these and the fashion lollipops, I wonder what kind of fashion foods are next!

Style Bubble posted these amazing hats by Carianne Moore, and I love the pictures as much as the hats! I would never have an occasion to wear such a hat, if I ever got my hands on one. I’d wear it anyway though. The first one especially catches my eye – it’s like an outrageous harp crown.
Also, check out these funny hats I saw on Jezebel today! Too cute!

Ali and Free People! Thanks for sharing and making me feel jealous of your office "outfits". You look hot. You should see what I wear to work everyday. I have to look like a man to fit in at my job. Day One - Black Blazer, white collared shirt, black pants, black heels. Day Two - Black Blazer, Light Blue collared shirt, black pants, black heels. Day Three - you get the picture.

Good morning! This song, Melody Day, by Caribou is the perfect way to start the day! If you haven’t heard Caribou I bet you will like them! The video is pretty neat too! Enjoy!

It’s Thursday already, and it’s time for our poll! Hooray!
Last Week we scoped out a few summer dresses, and the One Shoulder Banded Bottom Dress ended up as the favorite, with 157 votes!
This week I am kind of obsessed by our new Fan Club Tube, which is basically the printed version of our fun Solid Banded Tube. I love all the prints, and I am interested to know which color you guys like the most!
First check out the tube in Sky Combo.

Next is the tube shown in Hot Coral Combo.

Finally, here’s the tube in Deep Indigo Combo!

So which color do you prefer?

We had another Free People spotting over at Perez Hilton – this time it’s Kelly Clarkson! I really like her! She seems like a real sweet woman. She is wearing our Poets Society Gauze Top in teal.
(FYI, this top is only sold online – it’s not in our stores.)

Ah! Kelly looks so cute, especially in the “say cheese” shot! Jessica is the designer who created this top, and when I showed her the Perez article she was so excited! She told me this is her “first celebrity”, as in the first time she’s had one of her designs worn by a celebrity! Too cute! Here’s Jessica below, being happy!

These beautiful works are by artist Mars-1, a.k.a. Mario Martinez. Don’t you love them? Check out his site, it has a blog-like format and much more unworldly art!

This staircase is amazing and I’ve never seen anything like it! It was designed by HŠH architects, and is made of 10mm thick sheet metal. I’d love to see it in real life!

I’m really entranced by these pictures from the show for Chanel’s resort fashions. I keep coming back to them! The hairstyles seem to call back to the early 20th century, or at least, they do to me! Every time I look at them I’m reminded of the flappers, or even faintly of the Gibson Girls.

The clothes seem kind of inspired by these eras as well – is this just me? Do you guys see it too? What do you think?
I saw this gorgeous set on The Moldy Doily. (She always posts awesome pictures!) Head over there to see many more shots from this show!

I am totally pumped to announce our second Free People Fashion Illustration Contest!
Create an original fashion illustration that includes at least one of the following three items:
the One-Shoulder Banded Bottom Dress, Lace Tulip Mini Skirt or Jacquard Princess Cami.
(See pictures of these items at the bottom of this post and on our site.)
Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, artistic rendering, and appropriateness to the Free People aesthetic.
The winner will receive a goody-box filled with all kinds of awesome surprises from all of us at Free People, valued at $100!
A Few Guidelines
-Your illustration must be your own original design.
