Many of us who work at URBN Inc. have little brothers or sisters through the local Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. They have a wonderful program where they even bus the children to our office from their school, twice a month to eat lunch with us! After lunch, Bigs and Littles just hang out together and do their own thing, or they can do whatever the fun scheduled activity is for that day.
At the end of last week, our Littles came, and the activity was so fun! It was a newspaper fashion show! Bigs and Littles made outfits out of newspaper and then walked the runway! There are so many adorable and funny pictures from it, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you! I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of them too!
Black*Eiffel spotted these sweet old cartography maps, so carefully made by Harold Fisk in 1944! They portray the alluvial valley of the lower Mississippi River, and the ribbons of color are the banks of the river at various times in history. Very interesting, and very very pretty. See the whole set at Radical Cartography!
This video is really fun! I’ve seen these giant pianos for dancing before, but I’ve sure never seen anyone playing it with such skill! These folks do a little routine and play Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor on it! Sweet!
One of our designers brought the picture below to my attention – it’s so fun to see people out and about wearing FP! It came from a Perez Hilton post about Kate’s new brunette hairdo – but check out her shirt! It’s our Printed Dreamweaver Tank in Purple Sun!
Ryanne, who designed the tank, was really psyched! And what’s extra cute is that she happens to be wearing that very tank, in that color, today! So random!
Here she is being happy and cute below!
Why don’t people do more things like this? I love it! Artist Posterchild turned this abandoned newspaper box into a planter, with the help of a couple pieces of wood! There are so many empty newspaper boxes around Philly – I think we need some flowers for them! Click here for better pictures.
One of Design*Sponge‘s guest bloggers, (I can’t figure out who,) made these adorable sheep crackers at home! Aren’t they totally awesome?! She was kind enough to post a how-to as well, be sure to check it out!
This video is so funny and cool! It’s an old clip from the 1930’s, in which a few fashion designers predicted what they thought people would be wearing in the future! For being so far back as the 30’s, their predictions weren’t totally off base, I thought. Enjoy!
Due in part to her fascination with the stage shows she saw as a girl in which the animals would come on stage with little outfits on, designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who usually designs for women, has started making Dirndl dresses for horses! The horse looks so cute in her dress! Hee hee! Check out Oddly Enough Blog for more.
