This is a postcard we got from our agents in Taiwan! Yay! They are so sweet!
The story behind the picture is that they held a fashion show for the Urban Outfitters Executives – with the agents for each brand modeling those particular clothes – Free People girls in Free People, Anthropologie girls in Anthro, etc… By all accounts it was a great show! And they sure look cute all dressed in Free People!

Check out these adorable Sheer Dip Dye Tanks! They are SO SOFT! Gabrielle, the designer mostly responsible for their creation, had this to tell us about them:
“To make these tops we used transparent jersey, a special fabric that we developed just for We the Free. It’s a burnout poly-cotton blend that has a super soft hand feel. To get the print and color, we used a dip dye technique, and used discharge printing for the designs. The printed designs were inspired by organic prints, as well as text. One of the tanks has a text based print that we found in the lining of a vintage Russian military jacket. We think it was the soldier’s name and ID number.”
“We love the different tie dye techniques that we used! It’s an easy basic tank with an amazing fit; fitted on the top with a more easy fit in the body. You can layer it or just wear on its own.”
Thanks Gabrielle! We love these tanks too!

I got one of those tanktops from the Spring season and they are SO comfy. I wore it under one of your dresses to my graduation.

solar vintage

Elena Corchero is a designer working with technology and incorporating traditional craft techniques, combining solar technology and textiles. Here are some of her beautiful accessories, that collect energy during the day, and become luminescent decorations in the dark. I love that these are completely beautiful on their own, and their function and technology do not define the design. Check out the lost values projects for more information.

Well the contest is officially over, (except for the last few mail-in entries that are coming in, which had to be postmarked by June 27th,) and we are so happy and excited about the responses we’ve received! We got more than ninety entries, and we are so so impressed with all of them!
You can expect to see a post announcing which design was the winner by July 15th, though possibly before that – maybe even next week!
You can also look forward to seeing a Flickr account go up with all the entries on it after the winner is announced!
Thank you ALL so very much, from all of us here at Free People.
It has been such a pleasure to have the contest and to interact with you all!
We love you!

nelson bc

Head on over to Poppy Talk and read the week’s worth of guest postings from Cartolina Cards designer Fiona Richards. Fiona takes us on a blogging journey of her small artist community of Nelson BC. I loved seeing all of the beautiful scenery, buildings, art, craft and businesses flourishing in the remote town.
Go see for yourself!

And I do hope you'll develop some of your concepts about this topic and I will sure come back and browse it. Thanks for the effort and time.

very beautiful and inspiring. Thank you! Long ago I was hiding out in Canada for a stretch of time and had to walk out of BC back to the States in my moccasins...a long story that my (grown) children don't quite appreciate - but I still am certain that British Columbia is the most beautiful place in North America.

Lobster Hats!

Our Senior Stylist and our Senior Graphic Designer went on a trip to Maine last week, and to our delight and amusement, they brought back a bunch of lobster hats!
Above are a couple pictures of us enjoying our hats! It made the morning a touch more fun and unusual!

it's nice to see that people enjoy those hats, us mainers tend to avoid them as much as possible. lol

These photos are so beautiful I can’t even stand it! From a Japanese fashion label called writtenafterwards. Can you believe the last photo is the original piece of lace used to make the globe??

This reminds me of a passage from Daniel Pinkwater's "The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death", in which an artist painted a room and everything in it white and then painted it on a canvas.

Check out these women’s tops:

Very cool. I like them a lot. But have a look at what I didn’t notice until later:
Wow! I love it! On the first two in particular, I definitely thought the prints were stripes and spots, not horses and skulls. It just goes to show you! If you’d like to see more of the Hawkins Trio Cami, click here!

embroidery by nea

Nea makes these “wall wear” cross stitch embroidery decorations, and has transformed the idea into a necklace as well! I love the metal details mixed in with the threads! Check out the nea etsy shop and the creativadoration blog for more info. (The blog is half in French and half English, but you can always enjoy the pictures!)

Aren’t these frames so cool? Recently we got an email from Free People girl Chelsea Wilcox, who asked us if we might like to see some picture frames she made out of Free People catalogs. We did, and we loved them so much, we wanted to share them with you!
Here’s a little note from Chelsea, who is pictured on the right in the top two photos:
“I’m 18 years old and an avid lover of Free People clothes! I recently made a bunch of frames decorated with snippets from the two most recent Free People magazines. I just cut out all the designs I liked into squares and rectangles from clothes and patterns that were within the magazine. Then I placed the cut-outs on a photo matte-board that had been cut to place a picture inside. You don’t really have to use a matte-board, a hard piece of cardboard would work as well. And, you do not have to have the matte-board pre-cut, you could also glue your photo in the center and work around it–but having it pre-cut makes the photo a lot more evenly placed!”
I think this is such a cool idea. Thank you for sharing Chelsea!
Check out this older post for another cool way to craft with Free People catalogs!
