FP Holiday Playlist!

We have yet another fun holiday diversion for you! I recently went around and asked everyone here at the home office for their favorite holiday or wintertime songs! We have put them together on a playlist for you, which you can access by clicking here. Please note however, that you need to have iTunes installed on your computer to be able to view the playlist. We have been experimenting with different ways to put up playlists for you, so we of course welcome any feedback!
At any rate, check out the playlist! It includes over 30 songs, including this awesome classic sung by Eartha Kitt below…

What is your job here at FP?
web producer/nerd/sarcastic jerk
What is your current state of mind?
I sort of feel like crawling under a rock today, but also I’m excited about Thanksgiving.
Who are your heroes?
Conan O’Brian. Bob Dylan. I know I have plenty, but my mind is blanking.
If you could choose what to come back to life as, what would you be?
I might be a hawk, so I could fly but not be afraid of being eaten. Or maybe a gibbon. So I could sing all day and swing through the trees.
What or who is your greatest love?
My mom.
Name one thing necessary to your happiness.
Animals, hugs, pizza – oh crap, that’s 3 things – oh, and laughing, sleeping… I need a lot of things.
What do you hate the most?
People who are unable to see the world though other people’s eyes. Also, people on cellphones.
What would the name of your band be and what genre? What instrument do you play in this band?
“expired medicine” – I don’t remember why, but I remember deciding that. I’d play the drums, even though I don’t know how to play…
What color are you?
Green.
What is your motto?
It might sound hackneyed, but really I believe deeply in The Golden Rule. Although “Get Over It” is a close second.

space 15 twenty

Our third We the Free store will open this Friday in an exciting new space on Cahuenga Blvd in LA. More on the We the Free store later, but here is some info about the new space created by our parent company, Urban Outfitters.
A new retail experiment in Hollywood, CA, Space 15 Twenty creates an opportunity for Urban Outfitters to collaborate with creative brands we find inspiring and interesting.
A courtyard leads from each store to an outdoor performance space and adjoining gallery. Both of which encourage designers and artists to become part of a curated environment. Working with neighboring music, film and art establishments, both courtyard and adjoining gallery will present a rotating cast of local musicians and artists.
The Urban Outfitters store will feature one-off installations by a new designer every few months. Alongside the 11,000 square foot Urban Outfitters store, Space 15 Twenty will host a selection of vendors. The revolving brands utilizing these spaces will reflect and compliment Urban Outfitters and present our customers with an overarching view of people and brands which are excited to be aligned with.
Check out the space15twenty for info on the other tenants and the great events the space will host.

I hear that the Urban Outfitters has amazing installations inside the store. I was told about a wall made of prom dresses inside that was a must see. How do they keep doing it season after season!? My staff and I can't wait to visit the space on Friday night!

Here’s a few extra shots from our November Intimates catalog taken by photographer Chrissy Piper. (check out her site too!)

a quick make-up how-to

A few days ago, our customer service representatives received this little note:
Dear Free People,
I receive your catalogs in the mail…thank you. I have a question in regards to your November 2008 catalog.
On pages 25 and 35, is it possible for you to tell me what lipstick color/brand they are?
Thank you.

We asked our make-up artist, Deanna, to help us out with this question, and she told us exactly how she made-up the model’s lips! I thought I’d share her answer with you:
Prepare the lip with a little Eucerin ointment- just enough to moisten the lip.
Then press Make Up For Ever Star powder (loose) in iridescent fuschia into lip, concentrating color more on the center of lips, then build to desired intensity.
Most Make Up For Ever products can be purchased at Sephora!

Thanks Deanna!

This video of the Reno Balloon Race makes me happy. It’s all sped up, and the balloons look really cute and cheerful zipping and bounding around so quickly! Enjoy!

Anyone thinking of the dancing mushrooms from the original Fantasia? The video should have that music to it.

First a few behind the scenes pictures: shooting outside, a firefly (how Free People!) and the sunset in Virginia, the same location that we shot our We the Free catalog. They shot inside and outside of these abandoned houses. It rained a little bit, but they made the best of it!
Our photographer was Michael Dwornik from New York (a great guy and wonderful photographer!).

whoa.

So I’ve been a fan of Julian Vallée‘s artwork for a while now – he is a master of working with cut and paste, and uses lots of really bright colors! When I saw this piece on Booooooom my first reaction was whoa, and then I knew I had to share it with you! I want to live in a world where that’s what it looks like when you spray paint from a can. Check out Julian’s website to see more of his work – total eye candy.

I looove Julien Vallee's work! I had the same reaction when I say that, I was like OH DANG.

shredded t tutorial


I’m totally inspired by this tutorial on childhood flames for artfully shredding a t-shirt. Check out her blog for the step by step, or just checkout the video. It takes hours, but looks amazing!

The day after I saw this my bestie and I decided to make spirit shirts for our last football game.. we took large shirts and cut, tied, braided, and every thing you can imagine to them.. I started pulling at mine and we both added it.. I played with it during every class so far (did I mention im wearing it right now?) and its about halfway up the shirt on the front!!! LOVE IT!!
Julie -Nov 05, 2008, 5:49PM

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!
