Fashion Dictionary: British Fashion Terms You Need To Know!

With the launch of our new UK microsite (and ecommerce coming this fall!), we started thinking. There is a verbal fashion gap when it comes to the names of certain key clothing items. Something you’ve worn your whole life might go by a completely different name across the pond, and we want to make sure that nothing gets lost in translation. Read More

Video: Who’s That Girl?

 

We’re not sure what we love more. The video for our September catalogue, or the fact that you can actually shop it. September is full of good news for us, as you can see by the video above we’ve got England on our minds in a major way. Today marks the launch of Free People UK, and make sure to pay close attention to the “Spot The It Girl” contest we’re running, too. One lucky UK resident will win one year of Free People clothing! In the meantime, watch the video above and see our September catalogue in (paparazzi-crazed) action.

Make Your Own A-Frame Tent

Okay, I’m fairly certain this is meant for kids, but I am a huge fan of grown-ups getting in on the fun, too. The link below will lead you to instructions on how to create your own A-frame tent. I’m thinking  few modifications could have something like this ready to go for a trip to the beach or a picnic, too.

If you have a spare Saturday (perhaps over a holiday weekend?), give it a try and let us know how it goes. (A Beautiful Mess)
