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 helps them to produce the required results for their clients and offer top quality images or photos. If you need a particularly large job in data outsourcing, it would take a lot of time and will require overtime for your staff if you do it in-house. Photoshop is obviously one of the best ways a specialist uses to resize.

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!).

The props were all made by FP girls Mackenzie and Kara. They glittered everything! Pinecones and sticks all tied up with yarn

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!

A hearty congratulations to our Free People Fashion Illustration Contest winner, Tuesday Mourning of South Pasadena, California! Hooray!
All of the entries we received were so special, it was really really difficult to pick a winner! You guys are an exceptionally talented bunch, and we had never gotten so many gorgeous illustrations by email and snail-mail before! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated! We truly enjoyed seeing your work!
Since we loved all the entries so much, we are currently in the process of saving them all in a set on our Flickr account, so be sure to check them out!

Hey Nicol! I'm sorry to report that we would like to avoid putting full names and other personal information on the Flickr account. However, if you send the pictures of the artists you are interested in to blog.freepeople@gmail.com, I can email you a couple names if you would like to research their artwork. Hope this helps! Thanks! xo p
nikol -Oct 20, 2008, 11:11PM
Hey, I was one of the artists that submitted and I was wondering if you could switch the names of the files to the name of the artist who's piece it was so that if people want to look at more of their work they know who did it. There were a couple that i would like to look at if they have portfolios. Is there a way we can implement this?

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?

pruittfpgirl -Oct 17, 2008, 11:26AM
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!
Katie Eargle -Oct 17, 2008, 11:14AM
can't go wrong with flared jeans! also, i have to ask you for some help. I saw this model months back and I've always been fascinated to find out who she is, since i look a lot like her her: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30190660_3218.jpg me: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/spaceangel/n1570620176_30184251_6326.jpg they say there's a twin for someone in the world and I think she's mine! haha
