Isn’t this a clever idea?! Sue of Sue’s Sewing and Happenings used a Vogue jacket pattern and quite a few empty Capri Sun juice packets to create this fun jacket! She looks really cute modeling it too! See a collage of her process here.
I can’t believe this is our fiftieth Thursday Poll! Wow. But here we are! Last time we looked at some of the fun colors of the Cheeky Lace Bra – the Grey came out on top, but not by much! Violet and Pimento were behind by only 20 votes!
This week I’ve been checking out our pretty sparkly headbands! I love the sequins! Have a look at them below…
First is the Sequin Halo Headband, shown here in Gold.
Don’t forget tomorrow is our open model casting in New York City! It will be taking place at our 5th Avenue store from 10am until 2pm! You don’t have to be a model, but on account of the size of our samples, it’s best if you are a US ladies size 4. If you have any questions at all, please post them as a comment here and we will be sure to answer you as quickly as possible! You can also check out the original post for more information!
Can’t wait to see you there! When: Friday July 10th 2009, 10am – 2pm
Where: Free People

This fishbowl is so pretty and cool! The only thing if I had one though is I would be afraid for my fishy if those little legs gave out! They look a bit rickety and suspect to me… Still, what a great concept – it was designed by Amaury Poudray.

These amazing images in rice crops are located in Japan! They are made with careful planning, strategically planting different colors of rice plants so that they grow into a picture. The town of Inakadate in particular is known for its skill in creating rice art, but you can find rice pictures all across the country in the summertime! Check out many more photos of amazing rice paddy crop art on Pink Tentacle.
You may be aware that haute-couture fashion designer Christian LaCroix recently filed for bankruptcy. However, yesterday he showed a really lovely and rather dark collection in Paris in what might have been his last show. Sad! Reportedly a lot of people cried at the end of the show! Still, the clothes were gorgeous! Check out many more of the looks here on Jezebel and here on The Cut!
Above is a prototype of the cool Calyx Umbrella, which is inspired by flower petals! It’s ribs expand sideways as well as radially, and it looks really cute too! Check out the little video they’ve made for it!
Such a clever idea! Make a bit of a larger one, and I’ll take it!
I need to get my hands on these awesome laser-cut acrylic rings by Plastique! The set comes with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, and the Space Needle! See more pictures here. Fun!

Hooray! Our July catalog drops today, and should be hitting your mailboxes any time now! We are so excited about this book because of the wonderful photographers we used! Lina Scheynius is a Swedish photographer who shoots with a free form, sometimes using polaroids! The more close-up studio shots in the catalog were taken by Crackerfarm Photographers, (who often work with us in our web studio as well) and these shots focus on the apparel that we love!
The locations we used for this book were an old brownstone house, and a photography studio in New York, NY. The old brownstone had fabulous old wallpaper, so the walls became a lot of the backdrops in the catalog!
As for apparel themes, jackets are a big part of this book – we love them layered with many items, or even over a simple top or dress! Click here to check out the online version of the catalog!
