I’m loving this amazing work by London-based artist Kate MccGwire! To create these pieces she used thousands of discarded pigeon feathers, and they seem to create so much movement! I especially love how they look flowing out of pipes! See more of Kate’s work here.

Aaron at Color Schemer has created an awesome list of all the Crayola Crayon colors, with hex codes. For me the fun is reading all the different names! ColourLovers has the whole list right here, as well as a bunch of pictures like those shown above, and some random crayon facts. Fun!
You may remember a while back when we talked about all the cool sequined and embellished tights that hit the runway during fashion week… Well, Park & Cube has a really handy tutorial showing how she embellished the fabulous tights shown above! It has awesome pictures and some handy tips for those of us who feel the urge to DIY some cool tights for ourselves! Check it out here.

This interesting building is, rather fittingly, the offices of Spanish Selgas Cano Architecture. Naturally, they designed it themselves. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I kind of like it, I like that you can see the scenery around it anyway, but it seems maybe small and narrow… What do you think?
Either way, an interesting concept! Via.
These spools of ribbon from Felt at Home are so awesome! It’s such a beautiful way to send someone a message! You can get ribbons with poetry printed on them, or get your own things printed on them, like invitations or birth announcements! Imagine the love notes one could get! The wooden spools are vintage, and so are the buttons. No wonder they look so pretty! You can get yours at Felt at Home’s shop.
These photographs by Elena Kalis are so beautiful! The dress looks so delicate and light in the water! The colors are gorgeous too. Be sure to check out Elena’s website – her other work is equally dreamy.

Recently, one of our Facebook friends wrote in and asked if we had some photos of the Free People line from back in the 1980′s! Luckily for her, and for all of us, our Assistant Art Director Carrie was kind enough to put together this little video! It features items from the very beginning, when Urban Outfitters was just starting back in the 70′s and had one little shop in West Philadelphia, called The Free People’s Store. Then it moves on through the 1980′s to our inception as a separate brand, and evolves on to now! It’s really fun to see our development over time and look at all the vintage Free People styles! Enjoy!
I can’t stop admiring these rather surreal pieces by Tyson Skross. After moving to rural Switzerland from Texas at the age of nine, he became intrigued with the odd natural phenomena that he often witnessed. This sort of altered reality and intangibility is what he tries to bring to his work. So strangely beautiful! See more here and here.
