A hearty congratulations to the winner of the Free People Best or Worst Date Ever Video Contest, Molly! Check out her video below!
All of the entries we received were so special, it was really really difficult to pick a winner! You guys have had some crazy dates, good and bad! Thank you so very much to everyone who participated!
And if you weren’t a winner, fear not! There are more contests and giveaways in the making! Stay tuned!
Comments are now closed for the February catalog giveaway. The lucky winner is Priscilla! Her comment was randomly chosen by random.org and she wins these trinkets our creative director brought back from the photoshoot in Mexico.
Here was her answer to the question “What is your favorite thing about the beach?” My favorite thing about the beach is the sounds. Obviously, the ocean waves, the screech of seagulls and small children, pieces of conversation… I am so ready for summer to be here already. :P
This was fun! The answers to the animal question were hilarious. Scroll down a few entries and read them all.
Do you have a couple minutes? (Just a couple!) Do you like filling out surveys? Take our blog survey!
We came up with this survey to see what you think of the blog and of Free People, so that we can keep coming with what you like, and improve too! Needless to say, we are really anxious to see your survey responses because we really want to know your opinions! So please, if you have a moment, take our survey! We’d really appreciate it! P.S. The cute picture of the kitty with the Atari (I like to think he’s trying to take a survey,) is from here.
Thank you all so much for participating in the little hair clip and nail file giveaway!
It was so much fun to read everyone’s favorite current silhouettes!
And now for the winners, chosen at random:
Congratulations to Ariel! My favorite silhouette is probably an empire waisted dress/tunic.
Congratulations to Angela T! I’m loving tunics right now, as well as comfy tops with skinny pants. My favorite Free People item right now my crimson/purple velvet leggings. They are SO cool.
Congratulations to Kaleigh! tunics with printed/colorful leggings or tights
Everyone else, don’t lose hope! We will be doing another giveaway very soon! Stay tuned, and thank you!
Valentine’s Day is closer than you think, and to get in the spirit, we have put together a little contest for you!
It’s my pleasure to announce Free People’s Best or Worst Date Ever Video Contest!
What was the worst date you have ever had? How about the best? Tell us about it for a chance to win a Free People Valentine Goody Box, including some cute Free People intimates wear and many other treats!
Make a little video in which you tell us about the best or worst date you ever had. What was so awful or so great about it? Why was it your worst or best date ever?
To get your wheels turning, we made a little video of our own worst and best dates! Check it out above, it’s really cute! A few requirements for entries:
-You must be 18 or older to enter, and you must be a United States resident.
-Only one entry per person.
-Videos must be 3 minutes or less.
-Videos should not have music in them. Unless you are singing unaccompanied. ;)
-Please do not mention the real name or nickname of your date. Don’t show pictures of your date either!
-No offensive, lewd language or stories please! Keep it classy.
-Only you should appear in the video.
-Videos emailed to us as attachments must be in .mov or .avi format, and be no larger than 10MB.
Videos will be judged based on their relevance to the question at hand and their creativity in telling the story, at 40% each. They will also be judged a tiny little bit on humor and production quality, at 10% each.
The video with the highest score wins you a Free People Valentine Goody Box, worth approximately 100$! Who needs a good valentine when you have your FP goody box?! How to submit:

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.
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!
