They’re so amazing! I can’t imagine all the work involved to figure out exactly where to place each part of the design! Check out Felice’s website for more.

Wow! That is truly amazing. It's great to see such a talented individual make art accessible to everyone!

This is by far one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Aside from those 3D sidewalk chalk designs. http://www.toxel.com/inspiration/2008/05/18/3d-sidewalk-chalk-art/

Definitely going to try this! I would loooove if you guys would come out with a doggie line! Cute little collars and leashes! The stuff you find in the pet stores are just so cheesy : /

It’s time again for our Thursday Poll! Last week, I wondered which color of our Solid Pullover Poncho you liked the most. Coral and Bark were very close, with votes of 108 and 104, respectively. However, they were the winners by far, with Midnight getting 83 votes, and Grey Heather only 52! Bright colors ruled the day!
Lately, I’ve noticed harem pants starting to come into style. We recently came out with a few different pairs ourselves, and this week I wondered which ones you preferred!
First, have a look at our Linen Harem Pants.

Next are the We The Free Crinkle Jersey Harem Pants.

Shown below are the Pocket Harem Pants.

Finally, check out our Cropped Harem Pants shown here in Slate.

I wouldn't wear them on a regular basis, but are great for performance stuff like flow arts

Meet our featured Facebook friend – Myra!

We found Myra, (or rather, she found us) after she posted some amazing photos of her clothing designs on our Facebook page! She also wrote us a little note about how her designs and photo shoots are inspired by Free People! We could totally tell, and were very flattered!
Myra is from Chesterfield, Missouri, and is creating things all the time! She starts out her process by envisioning a story, which includes a specific model and setting, and goes from there. She has been designing ever since she received her first sewing machine in 2004! She will be attending school for fashion design starting this fall, and is currently planning a booth for her wares at a local art fair!
Myra was so sweet as to put together an awesome how-to for the camisole tank dress that she makes! You can see examples of how cute the dress looks when it’s finished in the pictures above and below! We just love the details on this dress! I can’t wait to make my own! Myra even shows us how to cinch the tank at the top! Click here for all the instructions on how to make the dress, with a ton more pictures too!

Just for fun, we asked Myra a few interview-type questions!
What is your current state of mind?
I am enthused about my future for the endless possibilities!
Do you have any pets?
I have a big black cat, named Big Boy
What inspires you?
Nature, vintage photos, vintage styles, and of course Free People!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Sewing, going to music stores, shopping for vintage clothing, eating at places I’ve never been to.

Erté a French designer and artist in the early 1900’s, and Mucha
Who are your favorite designers?
Free people, Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, and myself.
Who is your favorite celebrity inspiration?
Kate Moss, Sienna Miller
What did you want to be as a child?
I wanted to be an elementary teacher I thought it would be fun to create activities for kids to do.
What do you like best about where you live now?
My friends and family, and the inspiring mid-west countryside
What superpower would you most like to have?
Definitely to fly, I’ve had dreams of flying and it’s the craziest feeling to be above everything.
What is your favorite article of clothing that you own right now?
My collection of vintage plaid shirt’s, I can’t just pick one!
What is your motto?
Out of good comes good
And the mysterious fate

Yay! Thank you so much for sharing one of your beautiful designs with us Myra! I can’t wait to work on my own camisole tank dress!

light lane

Isn’t this such a smart idea? I love it! I think the Free People girl needs one of these Light Lanes to keep safe on her bike! This would help so so much when there is no bike lane! What do you guys think?

These awesome photos are by New York City photographer Sam Bassett. He seems to do more portraits than anything else, but as you can see, they are really unusual and interesting portraits! I have been wandering around his site for a chunk of this afternoon, and if you liked these pictures at all, you will definitely enjoy looking around it yourself!

…and you were interested, I thought I would post these pictures of First Lady Obama in the ensemble she chose for the inauguration yesterday. There was much discussion about who would be the lucky designer of the outfit she would wear, and the lucky designer ended up being Isabel Toledo!
I like the material she used, and the color too! The body and shape are a little old fashioned for me, but I do think she looked very appropriately dressed for the occasion! And the coat was to die for!
The girls were wearing J. Crew.
So what did you guys think?
The first picture is a Getty Image, the other two are from AP.

What was she thinking!?!
Julianna -Jan 21, 2009, 3:06PM
Michelle is wearing matching green gloves as well. She's so beautiful. I can't wait for 4 years of Michelle Obama fashion! Also the youngest daughter was so cute when she hopped up on the platform when Obama was getting ready to be signed in!

Don’t you love these pictures? I think they are so gorgeous! They are the work of L Filipe dos Santos of Corcoise, and if not for Penguin & Fish I would never have found him! If you are into them too, be sure to check out his blog and his Flickr photostream- there are a lot more beautiful pieces to be found there!

We had lots of requests for a Valentine Swap, so here it is! Sign up, I’ll match you with a partner, you make your partner a Valentine gift, they make you one, and you both have a happy Valentine’s Day.
Sign up here.
Sign up is open for one week only, so spread the news to fellow crafty friends so we can get as many people involved in the week. Get your creative juices flowing and I’ll send you your partner’s info next week, and of course the craft will be “due” on (around) February 14th.
Here are some past Vday swap flickr groups for some ideas. Here and here.

My son and I just made some great cards with his photo and candy. I love DIY projects that mean more because you make them yourself. http://jenparkerphotography.wordpress.com/2011/02/03/i-heart-valentines-day-still/

Today the United States inaugurates it’s first African-American president! Everyone here at the home office will be able watch on a big projector in Building 543. It’s very exciting!
The little video above is of an amazing model at Legoland in California. It’s an all lego miniature of the inauguration! For being a miniature, it’s pretty large, and real impressive! It even has a mini presidential motorcade!
