Free Your Mind Tee

free your mind quote shirt - Free Your Mind Tee

Do you like awesome reminders to live free? Do you like wearing shirts that inspire people to break out in song? Do you look good in blue or black? (of course you do!) If you answered yes to any of the above, then this review is for YOU!

The new ‘Free Your Mind’ tee is the fourth shirt from Soul Flower to have made my face incredibly happy. They were all so diverse with the ‘feel’ being different for each one. The ‘Hunter Tee’ and the ‘Treehugger Tee’ were both very lightweight in construction, and maybe even a little stretchy in composition. The ‘Free’ tee is more like the ‘Soul Flower Block Print’ tee… it feels more like your favorite worn cotton t-shirt. Not too light, not too heavy, but broken in just right.

The design is awesome because it gives off the effect that your t-shirt has been spray-painted. Like, maybe you were just walking to your car one day when out of the blue, someone ran up to you, and tagged your shirt with some fun advice! The process of creation was recently explained on the Soul Flower blog here. The blue and white colors make for a wicked cool contrast. Both are vibrant shades and really Pop! I like a little length to my shirts and this one lands just below my pants pockets. No riding up going on here. It stays just where I like it.

The ‘Free’ tee is my favorite t-shirt so far. I am literally wearing it right now. You should be too. Then, we could sing to each other. ‘Free Your Mind, and the Rest Will Follow.’ You’re singing it right now, aren’t you? 🙂

High-fives, buds…

Peggy is wearing the Waves of Freedom Pants and the Favorite Fairytale Top.

Hey Buds!

Hope you are all enjoying the new year! We’ve got some awesome updates about one of your favorite & most-loved items, the Waves of Freedom Pants

1. Awesome customers love awesome pants:
“These are so comfy and cool! I adore them. Dress ’em up, dress ’em down….can’t get enough!!… Another soul flower winner.”

“I LOVE these pants! … Compliments everywhere I go. They are warm and flowy, a perfect blend of funk and class.”

(Read all reviews of the Waves of Freedom pants)

2. Some customers are awesome tall:
The first time around, these pants ran short. Ya’ll wished they were longer. Well, now you can save your “starlight, starbright”s for world peace & more Nilla Wafers because we made ’em longer! In new shipments of these, each size will be 1 inch longer in length.

3. Long live awesome:
We’ll keep carrying these pants through Spring & Summer 2011.

Peace & Love Hippie Tapestry

Let me tell you about Soul Flower’s Peace & Love Tapestry, buds…

hippie tapestry love - Peace & Love Hippie Tapestry

Can you believe that this is my second tapestry ever? For years, I’ve had a problem narrowing down which one design I liked best, so I would just walk away from ordering one. It was a sad period in my life. When I saw the Peace & Love design, though, I knew that it would be a great addition to our living space. And, that is exactly where it is…draped across the back of our couch. Since our couch floats in the middle of the living room, facing the fireplace, the tapestry is the first place your eyes land as you come into the room. I think it makes a great focal point. It really sets the (jewel) tone of the room, haha!

hippie tapestry peace - Peace & Love Hippie Tapestry

Besides being a Soul Flower Karma Krewe member, blogger, and homeschooling mama, I’m also a budding natural-light photographer. I knew that the Peace & Love tapestry would make an excellent prop. And, I was right because, so far, I’ve taken several awesome pictures with it! At the Grand Canyon, sunset on the California coastline, and surrounded by beautiful colorful fall leaves in my mama’s yard. I cannot wait to continue finding creative photo ops for it!

The fabric is a sturdy cotton. It really feels like a heavyweight bed sheet. The colors are very saturated, and haven’t faded in three washes. There are little loops attached at the top two corners to make hanging it up on your wall a snap! The Soul Flower catalog compares it to a stained glass window, and I think that is a perfect description! The browns, burgundies, reds, blues, and purples are really rich, vibrant colors.

Whatever purpose your tapestry needs are, the Peace & Love tapestry from Soul Flower is definitely the solution! Another solid reason added to why I love Soul Flower! Peace, Love, and Tapestries, buds!!

Peace Fingers Tee Review

Peace Hand Symbol Tee shirt

One thing my wardrobe is lacking in is cute tee shirts. I am overloaded with baggy tees from high school that I only wear to bed. So, when I saw the Peace Fingers Tee I knew it would be the perfect addition to my clothing collection. I was super excited about how vibrate the red color is. I love bright colors and this one just happened to be the exact hue of red that was in a skirt I bought at Harvest Fest. It was immediately my favorite outfit!

I also love the attention to detail that was paid in all the designs within the fingers. Every time I look at it I spot something I didn’t see before. This tee is also very well made, not one of those flimsy tees that you can see right through. What’s great about this tee is that you can wear it pretty much anywhere. I wear it to lounge around the house, run errands, go to school, and even to shows at my favorite bar. I most recently wore it when I saw the Flavor Savers and Bumpus play at the Iowa City Yacht Club and I got compliments on it from a few members in both bands! This tee is a great choice for anyone who likes to look awesome with little effort while still being extremely comfortable.

Fair Trade Hippie Skirt Review

Prairie Home Skirt


This five tiered skirt is made using beautiful earthy colors. This flowing, long broom skirt is the perfect addition for fall or any season. The skirt is made of soft cotton; each tier separated by a raw hem. The fabric has beautiful floral patterns and the skirt features an elastic & drawstring waist. I’ve danced many nights away in this flowing skirt. With its floral patterns of blues, greens, & browns this skirt allows me to wear so many different color tops.

I also love the fact that this skirt is part of the fair trade movement. I know when I spend my money on fair trade clothing, the artists that hard work went into making it were compensated fairly. It is important to me to not only take care of mother earth, but to take care of our fellow brothers and sisters as well. Another reason I love shopping at Soulflower! They make it so easy to fill my wardrobe with super cute, eco-friendly, fair trade clothing that makes me smile 🙂

Your bud,

Hemp Style – the Sadie Tunic

hemp style hoodie - Hemp Style - the Sadie Tunic

I have a new favorite Soul Flower item!
Okay, okay…I know I say that every time, but they just basically ROCK! 🙂

I love, love, love my Sadie Tunic!!

hemp style tunic 2 - Hemp Style - the Sadie Tunic

The Sadie tunic is so versatile! Wear it by itself on warmer days, throw a t-shirt on underneath it for days with a slight chill, or pair it with your favorite long-sleeves for colder days. It works in any weather! On my recent Route 66 trip, I wore it when there was snow & ice in the Grand Canyon and on a sunny day in San Francisco! My sister even wore it as a dress with cowgirl boots, and she looked amazing! My favorite way to wear it, because I live in warm coastal Georgia, is with a t-shirt and jeans. It makes one awesome combination!

hemp sweatshirt 2 - Hemp Style - the Sadie Tunic

Once again, Soul Flower shows love to Mama Earth in the construction of the fabric. It is made up of 55% hemp & 45% organic cotton. You can feel good about the kindness of your purchase! The color is definitely more of a gray tone than beige. I was expecting it to be more beige. It is a sturdy fabric that has held up (without shrinking!) for a couple of months now. I am about 5’5″, so you can guess by my picture about what the length will be on your frame. The wood buttons have the coolest scroll design, and are almost a copper-ish color. The hood comes in handy for anytime the weather gets inclement or you just need a few minutes incognito. 🙂

comfy hemp sweater - Hemp Style - the Sadie Tunic

I’ve been getting compliments on it, wherever I go. I throw on my green jeans, the Sadie tunic, and my mandala bag to match. Tres hippie chic, buds! You should order the Sadie tunic for any lovely lady in your life, and be sure to include one for yourself!

Patchwork Skirt Review

hippie patchwork skirt

It’s OK, I’m in the Band(ana) Skirt…
My I’m in the Bandana Skirt is my favorite Soulflower item! Autumn is one of my favorite seasons and its all about color! I have had so much fun accessorizing this patchwork skirt because there are so many bold colors that I can really mix it up and create so many different looks! I dressed it up with my favorite autumn boots for a crisp autumn day of meandering along Philadelphia’s famous South Street. South Street is super artsy, eccentric, and colorful, so it was great to be able to feel so comfortable while also rocking amazing style!


The I’m in the Bandana Skirt has a light-weight lining that provides a bit of extra warmth which make this the perfect skirt for the cooler seasons. This skirt is also great for more casual looks. Throw on a cute hoodie, and some clogs and you’ve got a great casual Autumn look perfect for heading to the orchard to pick a pumpkin!

Autumn has been so much fun this year! I have had more events this autumn than ever before and my I’m in the Bandana Skirt has made it to easy to quickly switch up my look to head from Fall Festivals, to family reunions, to dinner with friends!

In 2 weeks, the hubby and I have a wedding to attend in Northern Florida and then we’re road tripping down the east coast of Florida to Miami. This skirt is the first thing on my list to pack! The weather will be uncertain and my I’m in the Bandana Skirt is great for both warm and cool temperatures. Boots or flip flops!?!? I don’t have to choose because both look great with my I’m in the Bandana Skirt!

Bring on the Funk Fleece Jacket Review

funky jacket 2 - Bring on the Funk Fleece Jacket Review

Brrrr! Autumn in Philly sure got chilly quick this year! My new Bring On The Funk Jacket is super warm and soft. What more could you ask for?!? The cozy fleece makes this the perfect outerwear for the cooler seasons. Friends have been having so many impromptu get togethers this holiday season, and my new Bring On The Funk Jacket has kept me looking fresh with no effort on my part! This jacket looks great with jeans, and is also a great match to my SoulFlower “I’m in the Bandana Skirt”! No matter what I’m wearing, I can quickly grab my Bring On The Funk Jacket and head out the door knowing I’ll be in style. The wood buttons on this jacket are so hip & funky and I love the unique patterns on each button! The large collar is my favorite part because the festive colors & detailed patterns celebrate the holiday season.

funky jacket 1 - Bring on the Funk Fleece Jacket Review

Winter in Philly is usually a sea of neutral colored peacoats and individuality seems to get lost in the mix. I love that SoulFlower allows me to express my creativity by offering such amazing and unique gear! I get so many compliments when I wear this jacket and I’m sure to tell everyone to visit Soul Flower.

Hippie Maternity Ideas by soul-flower featuring peasant tops

Recently, one of our buds on Facebook asked if we carry any cool maternity clothes. While we don’t specifically stock “maternity” clothes, we do have a lot of items that would work for mamas-to-be.

We’ve created a new Pregnancy Clothing Ideas category on the site with a selection of tees, tanks, skirts, and pants that’ll work for you when you’re expecting (and even when you’re not)!

When choosing items to be pregnancy-friendly, we looked for stretchy fabrics (that retain their shape after washing), long tunic-style t-shirts, forgiving waistbands, and flowy tops that aren’t too constricting. If you’re a hippie expecting mother or just love that boho style, we hope you can find something that works for you at Soul Flower.

As always, if you have any questions about fit or sizing, contact us.

Now we’ll throw it to all the mamas out there: What items from Soul Flower would you recommend for pregnancy? Did you have any favorites while you were expecting?

Patchwork Pants Review – she was a daytripper….

hippie patchwork pantsI LOVE the Daytripper Patch Pants! These patchwork pants are so comfortable and the quality is amazing. As a return customer to Soul-flower, I shop with the confidence of knowing that I will get a quality product every time. You can tell these pants were made to last! Good thing, because I’m in them all the time! From running errands, to hooping, to dancing the night away these pants are versatile and go with almost everything.

They sit low on the waist and feature cute embroidery throughout. The colors are absolutely beautiful! I got the sage and mine appear a little darker then the website & catalog, but they are perfect! Thanks again Soul-flower for another lovely, heady addition to my wardrobe!

Your Bud,
Trish

Hippie Backpack Review: it’s Da Bomb!

tie dye hippie backpackEven though I’m a student I haven’t used a backpack in probably six years. Most of them I’ve seen are pretty unattractive and bulky. But while browsing through some of Soul Flower’s new goods I came across the “Da Bomb Tie Dye Backpack”. It was instant love for me. This bag has tons of room for pretty much anything you need as well as two front pockets for those little things that get lost in a big sack.

boho overnight bagI love how versatile this bag is too. I take it to class, over night trips, even festivals and this bag will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. I just went to Kansas City this past weekend to see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and I brought my Da Bomb bag along for the trip. I fit everything I needed for the weekend with room to spare! I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on it already and I’ve only had it for a few weeks.

hippie school bagMost backpacks I’ve had throughout my career as a student make me feel like I have a box attached to my back. But since this is a soft bag you can barley even tell you’re wearing it which I love because I hate being weighed down by the bag I’m carrying. Fortunately I don’t have to bring many books to my classes so it’s perfect for me, but if you have to lug around a ton of text books this wouldn’t be the ideal bag for you. This is such a funky bag and you will absolutely love all the attention you get from it.

Take a Hike! T-Shirt Review

As a mother I am always on the lookout for clothing that is as unique as my children. Soul-Flower always solves that dilemma and the Take a Hike shirt is no exception. When I saw that they also had the same print in adult sizes, I was ecstatic! I had visions of dressing my husband and two year old in the same outfits and well, look for yourself how that turned out!

matching - Take a Hike! T-Shirt Review
What I love most about the shirts are their vibrant fall-like colors and the fact that they fit true-to-size. My 2 year old is very large on top but some 2Ts fit well and some 3Ts are too small. This shirt was perfect in a 2T! My husband’s large was also a perfect fit. We went out and about for the day with the boys in their shirts and they sure got a lot of compliments. I am sure it has nothing to do with how much they look alike 😉

Dexter, being 2 1/2 is really starting to come into himself. He is noticing everything and is talking a whole lot more. Nothing gets passed him really. When I first opened the box that contained the two shirts I told Dexter that I had a surprise for him in there. He is so used to seeing packages come for the new baby that he was ecstatic to see something for him. He first pulled out my husband’s shirt and he looked at it weird and said “no me shirt” and I said, “no, thats Daddy’s shirt” He looked puzzled until I gave him his shirt out of the box. He immediately looked at it and then turned and looked at the bigger shirt. He then looked at me and yelled “Dada Dexter same!” It was priceless.

Party Like a Folk Star T Shirt Review

folk3 - Party Like a Folk Star T Shirt Review folk2 - Party Like a Folk Star T Shirt Review

My Folk Star ecoHeather Tee has taken me from Summer on the beaches of beautiful Sea Isle City, NJ, to Autumn in the hip Northern Liberties of Philadelphia. This soft and eco friendly tee is perfect for a casual day outdoors. Add a pashmina and throw on your favorite autumn boots and you quickly have an urban look perfect for lunch in the city. This tee is a subtle hue of light blue that matches perfectly with other muted colors that are so fashionable this Autumn. My favorite thing about this tee is that I get to represent SoulFlower, while also repping my love of folk music! So whether I’m relaxing on the beach or stomping around Philly, everyone will know that I’m a fashionable music-loving chick! One thing to mention is that this this tee perfectly matches my other SoulFlower eco-friendly items! When the chilly Autumn evening air breezes by, i can throw on my Music is Life Eco Hoody over my Folk Star ecoHeather Tee and i am perfectly coordinated! For me, its all about effortless fashion and comfort, so the Folk Star ecoHeather Tee has been a great addition to my Autumn gear.

Note from your buds at Soul Flower: The Folk Star shirt that Sheila is wearing is our older style tee that we no longer carry. We still have the Folk Star design available, but we are now printing it on an even better and more eco-friendly shirt! (The fabric of this new shirt is made from a combination of recycled plastic water bottles and recycled cotton!)

Tree of Life Hemp Necklace Review

tree700 - Tree of Life Hemp Necklace Review treeoflife800 - Tree of Life Hemp Necklace Review wood700 - Tree of Life Hemp Necklace Review
The Tree of Life hemp necklace is already a much loved accessory for Autumn. The earth-tone beads are ideal for this season. If you look around Mama Earth right now, you will see the exact same hues! Very scenic, Soul-Flower!

The pendant is of medium thickness, not too thin & not too bulky. The circle around the tree almost has the appearance of twisted rope. It’s wicked cool and very dimensional! Deeper lines start on the trunk of the tree and extend up the branches. Five polished beads are lined up on each side of the pendant. The beads have a little spotted color to them, giving them a neat-o variegated appearance. The necklace itself is also not too thin, or thick, and likely to endure. It is also not too scratchy, which some hemp necklaces like to be. Luckily, one size fits all, and it is completely apropos for both gals and guys. It might even be 100% kosher, so all of our bases should be covered here. 🙂 All buds can enjoy this one!

I sure am gleeful and chipper to own this one, so order one today for yourself, or as a gift to someone else you want to see get chirpy! High-fives, Soul-Flower…this one ROCKS!

Ride the Waves Teal Tomorrow! review

As my final “hooray” of summer I attended Harvest Fest at Harmony Park in Geneva, MN. This was my first time there and it was absolutely spectacular. I have never been filled with so much love for people I had never met before. The performances by Xavier Rudd, Trevor Hall and Wookiefoot blew me away. Even though it was a little chilly and rained quite a bit on Friday nobody’s spirits got dampened and I was lucky enough to have some of my awesome Soul Flower goods to keep me warm throughout the weekend. We showed up on Thursday for the pre-party and I was definitely ready to party in my “Ride the Waves” skirt. I was a little concerned that it wouldn’t be comfortable for me because of the high was but boy was I wrong. This skirt is extremely comfortable and I swear this thing is indestructible. This is probably one of the most well made pieces of clothing I own and everyone was loving it. They all loved it even more when I told them it was Fair Trade. The thing I love about skirts and dresses is that you can wear them all year long, just throw on a pair of tights or leggings on underneath and you are set to rock your style all year long. When it got a little colder at night, Soul Flower had my back again and I just threw on my “Teal Tomorrow Kurta”. This is one beautiful piece of clothing. You can tell how much attention to detail is paid when you see all the white embroidery around the neckline and it contrasts wonderfully with the teal. This kurta is extremely breathable so it can be worn all year long, not just in the cooler months of the year. These are both fantastic pieces of clothing that I look forward to wearing into the fall and winter months!

Siera and Dakota: The Soul Flower Kiddos

Siera & Dakota have been around Soul Flower since they were just babes. Really – they both spent their earliest years in our old shop on Grand Avenue. And even though they moved, they still love to visit the warehouse whenever they are in the Twin Cities, creating havok among the aisles of clothes and riding around on our warehouse carts. They especially enjoy chase, hide-and-seek and coloring your invoices. Once in a while, they even help weigh your packages, with Brit’s support of course.

These two have grown from our Baby Buds to Soul Flower Kids. Check out a few of photos of Siera & Dakota from our catalog shoot at their house in DSM:

Bob Marley T-Shirt Review

I was lucky to be able to spend most of the weekends this Summer on the beaches of Sea Isle City, NJ. We roadtripped from Philly to Sea Isle every weekend listening to my man Bob Marley both in the car & on the beach! The influence of Sea Isle’s laid-back vibe can be seen all over town, and especially in the beach fashion. Sea Isle style is super relaxed, super comfortable. In a small beach town, everyone ends up chillin in tye-dye, so I was ready for something a little bit different just to keep it fresh. I’m also always happy to represent for Soul-Flower and Mr. Marley, so my new Kaya Tie-Top Blouse was the perfect addition to my beach wardrobe! The bright colors matched all of my favorite Summer accessories. The tie-top is cute and flirty and the material is soft and light, making this blouse perfect for any Summer event. I’m so happy to be rockin’ my sweet new Bob gear from Soul-Flower!

Review of Soul Flower Screenprinted Tee

Soul Flower Screenprinted Tee ReviewBe Yourself TShirt | Manifesto Slouch Tee | Soul Flower
The word is definitely out now…I am a little bit in love with Soulflower! When Peggy shared a link on Facebook about their new Soulflower Screenprinted Tee, I knew exactly what I would like to review next. I think I’ve mentioned before that, to me, even just the word ‘soulflower’ gives off such a positive vibe. In my mind’s eye, I see this gigantic cosmic bloom. So, when I had the chance to really let my Soulflower love~light shine…I went for it! And, you know, if you are really passionate about a design, or company, there is no better way to spread the word about them than to just turn yourself into a walking~talking billboard. This tee has definitely opened up more dialogue with others. And, I’ve given away more catalogs while wearing it than ever before! It’s totally win-win!

One of the things I dig most about the tee is something that happened before it ever arrived. There is such a creative process in its construction. It seems so old school to actually carve out a linoleum block as a template, and then to roll the ink onto it. Everything they used came from an art supply store.

When the tee arrived, I noticed an apparent goof on my part. I thought this was a woman’s size tee when I requested it, but it isn’t. I got online immediately to see if there had been a mistake in shipping, and saw straight away that I had failed to see Junior on the sizes! I have a pretty small frame, but this Large is very snug on me. I definitely should have asked for the XLarge. The good news is…I’ve washed it three times (just to be sure) and it did not shrink at all. It isn’t as lightweight as the Treehugger tee, but it not a thick tee either. It’s still in the 90’s down here in Georgia, and the tee has been perfectly fine to wear out. It hits me about midway on my jeans zipper, and it stays there. No problems with riding up, unless you are jumping on a trampoline, which I occasionally do. There is plenty of room, even with its snugginess, for my neck & arms. The color on the website is pretty right on. It isn’t lighter or darker, you get what you see. All in all, it’s another sweet tee from Soulflower. I recommend it. 🙂

I’m heading out on a Route 66 trip across America soon, and my Soulflower threads will be the first thing I throw in the bag to take with me. Based on this tee alone, you’ll definitely know it’s me if I come to a town near you! Don’t be afraid to walk up and give me a high-five!! Peace, buds!

Patchwork Duffle Back Pack


As soon as I received my new patchwork backpack, I had a full on bag argument at my house. Oh how my daughter wanted the new backpack. She went on and on about how useful it would be that I eventually gave in. She is the very happy owner of the Soul Flower Duffle Pack backpack. This super cute bag is just the right size for her and has the perfect amount of pockets and space. The adorable straps synch at the top, so she never loses her stuff! Here is her review…enjoy!

alyssa trish - Patchwork Duffle Back Pack
I love this bag because it`s fashionable, and the perfect size. I can use it if I am just going shopping or if I am going to the mountains for the day. It has lots of space for me to put magazines, books, and whatever else I want. The front pocket is perfect for my wallet, cell phone, camera, and iPod. The colors are amazing, they all look good together. Also it`s made excellently so I don’t have to worry about the quality. The synch at the top is great so nothing falls out. The big pocket is a great size not too big and not too small. And those are all the reasons I love this bag. Thanks for giving in Mom!
