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?

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!

garment graffitti

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!

Many of you already know what a huge fan I am of Elsa Mora- her wonderful personality, and her artwork! I am a regular reader of her fabulous blog, so you can imagine my delight when she recently introduced her new, additional blog, which is all about paper-cutting! (One of her many skills.) On it, you can find many of her papercuts, all organized by category, as well as all kinds of information about the art of paper-cutting! Of course, as you can see above, my favorite part is browsing all of her paper-cut work… wow! So delicate!

Sorry to jump back to a much older post, but I just came across these, and my goodness gracious, such elaborate delicacy and precise craftsmanship, that is rarely seen such as, rather a lost art form, and a pity that it is so. Thanks for sharing these though, they're gorgeous and quite inspiring! xoxo, S-C

found my animal leashes

A friend of Free People recommended I check out this great company that donates part of their proceeds to the Louis Animal Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to placing animals that have not yet found their humans in loving homes.
Found My Animal sells these beautiful leashes made by New England rope makers, the strong rope being a great alternative to leather. The leashes also feature bronze hardware and brass tags stamped with FOUND, and each is numbered to keep track of the number of animals that have been helped.
Check out their site for more info and pictures of cute doggies!

The Hand Drawn Map Association is a collection of user submitted maps and diagrams drawn by hand. How amazing are these? I love the idea of archiving something that is typically discarded…
Have some of your own hand drawn maps and diagrams? You can submit them to the archive!

I love this. When I was little during car rides I would close my eyes and, pen in hand, let the bumps draw the outline of some land mass. Then I would fill in the space with made up mountain ranges and such. snazzyfashion.blogspot.com

I saw these on Kiosk, and I just love the seller/creator’s description about them…
Clear lollis made in the traditional way with a candy mold, molds which are 100 years old; the maker has a collection of 300 of them. How fast your pour the lollis determines how clear they will be, clearness = perfection.
Colors: clear, red and green. The tradition was brought to America by German immigrants who historically produced them at Christmas, hanging the little ones in the tree.
We chose these forms to represent Massachusetts, the state we focused on for this first collection: windjammer boat = boat = the Mayflower, bear = black bears = the Berkshires, squirrel = the famous black squirrels of Westfield. Flavor = Sugar Beauty = 100%!

Haha! I love it! I want to see what molds they will pick for the rest of the states for sure!
If you want to possess these tasty suckers for yourself, visit their spot on Kiosk.

cute felt

Lusitania makes the cutest little felt-wares! She was featured on Penguin & Fish so I had a look at her Etsy, and now of course I have quite the colorful felt wishlist – especially the little pins and the yellow coin purse at the top!
