nest house

nest%20house%203.jpg
So beautiful with the autumn leaves! This nest house was designed by Gerard Moline for Droog. The concept is that you can construct this shelter and use materials from the natural surroundings to complete it. Create your own experience that relates to how the animals are connected to their natural surroundings and gain a better appreciation of your own.

let’s craft together!

Do you love to create and craft? Do you have a favorite craft project? Is there something you’ve made that is so wonderful that you want to show us how? We would love to see it!
We’re looking for all the Free People girls out there to send us their favorite craft projects!
Send us your project with pictures and step-by-step instructions at blog.freepeople@gmail.com! Be sure to include your name, town, and website or blog if you’ve got one!
We will be trying our hand at the projects ourselves, as well as sharing some of them with you on the blog! Think of it as an internet crafting party!
Check out the craft projects created by RubyEllen and NinkyBink if you need inspiration!

It’s getting very autumnal outside, and here at the home office, that means it’s time to paint pumpkins! People from all the brands got together this afternoon and painted pumpkins which will be auctioned off to raise money for the Children’s Scholarship Fund of Philadelphia. The fund provides tuition assistance to help Philadelphia children, in K- 8th grades gain access to safe, high quality schools. We had such a blast painting pumpkins! Some of them turned out to be real works of art!

posted this image of a beach on Thailand. I’ve never been there, but I want to go just to witness this!
They release these lanterns on the beach as a symbol of good luck. How beautiful!

Did you hear that song in Leanne Marshall’s final show on Project Runway?
Well FP girl Meredith is in love and has this to say:
“His name is Nathan W McKee and I bought his song on etsy (what a cool idea is that??!!!). I was going to wait to buy his EP in full when he puts it out soon but at $1.20 I didn’t see a reason not to just buy that now because I HAD TO HAVE IT.
It make me all giddy and happy listening to it, especially since it’s called Cookie Breath!!”

A hearty congratulations to our Free People Fashion Illustration Contest winner, Tuesday Mourning of South Pasadena, California! Hooray!
All of the entries we received were so special, it was really really difficult to pick a winner! You guys are an exceptionally talented bunch, and we had never gotten so many gorgeous illustrations by email and snail-mail before! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated! We truly enjoyed seeing your work!
Since we loved all the entries so much, we are currently in the process of saving them all in a set on our Flickr account, so be sure to check them out!

Hey Nicol! I'm sorry to report that we would like to avoid putting full names and other personal information on the Flickr account. However, if you send the pictures of the artists you are interested in to blog.freepeople@gmail.com, I can email you a couple names if you would like to research their artwork. Hope this helps! Thanks! xo p
nikol -Oct 20, 2008, 11:11PM
Hey, I was one of the artists that submitted and I was wondering if you could switch the names of the files to the name of the artist who's piece it was so that if people want to look at more of their work they know who did it. There were a couple that i would like to look at if they have portfolios. Is there a way we can implement this?

Well, first off I would like to apologize for the lack of a poll last week, and a late poll this week! Last week I am afraid I didn’t notice it was Thursday until it already had become Friday! (I’m so embarrassed!) Then this week I wondered if the polls had perhaps become obsolete – but now I am happy to announce the return of the Thursday Poll in full force, due to popular demand! Hooray! Next week we will be back to normal, with the Thursday Polls showing up on Thursday!
For our fun little Friday poll this week, I wanted to ask you all about jeans, since lately I have been thinking about jean fits. It seemed to me that for a while, flared jeans went ‘out’ and skinny tight jeans were the only style that was ‘in.’ But lately I’ve noticed jeans of all styles and fits are coming ‘in’, and I love the variety!
Shown below are our FP Skinny Denim Jeans, which are a good example of the skinny & straight fit.

Here we have our Distressed Flare Jean by Pratt’s, shown in blue. They are a nice example of a flared or bootcut style of jean.

Finally, below are our FP Stretch Wide-Leg Jeans, which exemplify the wide-leg or boyfriend style of jeans.

So which fit do you prefer to wear?

pruittfpgirl -Oct 17, 2008, 11:26AM
Wow! You guys really do look a lot alike! I am not sure who the model is, since she works for Urban, and we generally try to avoid using the same models as they - but I can ask the girls who hire models around here if they've seen her before, (I bet they have) and see what there is to find out about her. I'll let you know!
Katie Eargle -Oct 17, 2008, 11:14AM
can't go wrong with flared jeans! also, i have to ask you for some help. I saw this model months back and I've always been fascinated to find out who she is, since i look a lot like her her: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30190660_3218.jpg me: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30184251_6326.jpg they say there's a twin for someone in the world and I think she's mine! haha

garment graffitti

nice%20to%20meet%20you%20graffitti.jpg
Artist/designer Thomas Voorn has created this series of “Garment Graffitti” writing messages in candy colored clothing. As the folks at Refinery 29 pointed out, it might remind you of all the pieces of clothing you’ve lost in your travels. Kind of makes you imagine all of our lost clothes have found each other, and banded together to send us these messages!
