Wow! Now these are wallets for me! This is exactly what I need. These clever and very useful wallets cane be found at the Etsy store of treeswithknees.
I saw them on Happy Cavalier.

pop pillows

These pillows by Matt Jones crack me up! If I were to get a set I think I’d get the headphones/plugged ears ones, though the angel/devil ones are sweet too! Fun!

These are ok. There is a company called Snooze City that has tons of cool pillowcases that are better.....

These cool photos are all pictures of the reflections in a puddle! It’s such a clever idea, and now I of course am anxious to go outside and take some puddle pictures of my own! These shots are by photographer Vlado Marinkovic, and you can see the whole set, which is quite beautiful, here.

Dazed Digital has a really good collection of videos from Fashion Week in Paris which is worth checking out! Above is a short video of Dior’s Spring 2009 show, filmed by Pierre Debusschere. The clothes are awesome, and the song is great too! Head on over to Dazed Digital to see video of other Fashion Week shows.

How beautiful are the paper hats from the Chanel Couture show? Designed by Katsuyo Kamo who also did the hair and other flower ornaments. I love how most of them are white and then the black ones look more interesting against all of the white.
I guess these hats are no good for the rain.

I couldn’t resist posting this video of the Thames River in London in 1935! The film is an early color video; it used Gasparcolor, which is a very rare and old way of adding color to film. You can read a very detailed and admiring article about Gasparcolor here.
I find old color pictures and videos like this very intriguing, because one seldom gets a glimpse of the reality of life back then… it’s like a visual history lesson. If you are into stuff like this too, be sure to check out this old post about autochrome pictures.

For whatever reason, I was kind of surprised to see that Louis Vuitton has come out with this skateboard, which comes in its own little LV case. It’s cute though, right? I do like it, but at a price of $8,250, I don’t think I’ll be seeing one in person any time soon!

The new BLDG15 Threads is out today, and this month it’s all about Home Office Style! We asked six different Home Office employees to go the racks and pick out a Free People outfit for spring, and to tell us a little bit about their own personal style! We made a really sweet little video of our endeavors, and got really inspired to keep making up fun outfits! To watch the video and get inspired yourself, head over to BLDG 15 Threads!

My friends, it’s time again for our Thursday Poll!
Last week I asked for your opinion on a number of harem pants we are currently selling, and the majority of you responded that harem pants are not for you, with that option getting 283 votes! Very interesting! Those of you who did like the look of harem pants favored the We The Free Crinkle Jersey Harem Pants, with 95 votes!
This week, I’ve been thinking about drapey, voluminous tops. I love them right now, and I actually have not yet talked to anyone that does not! They are definitely a major trend right now! I think it may be because they are flattering on so many body types.
We have a number of drapey tops in our collection right now, and I’d be interested to know which one you find most appealing!
First, take a look at our Angel Dolman Top shown here in white.

Next, check out our Double Drape Tank, also shown in white.

Shown below is the Embroidered Floral Hoodie in oatmeal.

Finally, have a look at the Drapey Muscle Tee, here in black.

Which one of these do you like the most?

The talented Portuguese carpenter Carlos Alberto created the awesome wood Mota and wood Vespa shown above. Aren’t they beautiful? I want one! His ‘normal’ carpenter work is also very impressive. See more pictures of all at his site.

As the admin of this site is working, no doubt very rapidly it will be renowned, due to its feature contents.

I've been absorbing you're website for a few days now, from page to page, not wanting to stop until I see everything you've posted. I was truly amazed by all the ideas that you have here and I was planning to send you an e-mail asking when are you going to extend this "diy-philosophy" to Portugal. I would love to have a place like Free People to share this kind of things and even more, to work in a place like that. After 30-something pages I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a post about a Portuguese. I'm so happy that we get some recognition for our artists! Congratulations on all your work. :) Mia
