real fp girls – part 1

as mentioned, our may catalog features real girls who work for free people.  this month on the blog we’ll be profiling these lovely ladies and learning more about their life and style… starting with our web merchandiser!

i am inspired daily by the people i surround myself with. i have some very special people in my life, whether they are best friends, family members or work acquaintances, they’re all here for a reason.

i LOVE to travel… the pure, clean, crisp air of the colorado mountains gives me a feeling i can’t describe. a close second would have to be the redwood national forest in california- a magical place for sure! i also love going out to eat and trying new restaurants, and cooking.  i’m just starting to teach myself, so i started a cooking club dinner night with my girlfriends. some of my favorite things are live music, dancing at concerts with friends, pilates, riding my bike and hikes with my new pup… and flipping through fashion mags, which thankfully has become part of my job!  on a typical day off i sleep in with my dog, cat and boyfriend – yes,all in one bed – make banana pancakes and take a walk to the farmer’s market, then maybe stroll around the city with a girlfriend, checking out shops and getting manicures.  then out to see a show with some friends at night or dinner with my boyfriend!


i love lots of kinds of music – everything  from biggie smalls to hank williams jr.  some of my all-time favorites: the disco biscuits (i have followed them on tour for the past 10 years… so yeah, i guess i like them) phish- they changed my life, grateful dead, pink floyd, radiohead, muse, zeppelin, the doors, jay z, beck, nirvana…

and some newer favorites: phoenix, gorillaz, MGMT, hot chip, passion pit

my style…


1. genetic kelly patched flare; 2. easy corset slip; 3. printed smocked bandeau; 4. charli clogs.



  1. Cute! i enjoyed reading it. I’m a Florida gal but can relate to the way cool crisp clean air just instantly makes you feel gooooood :)

  2. Disco biscuits represent!!! Brownie is my favorite!! Maybe you know my sister!? She’s been a “band-aid” for them for years now. Got me into them when I was 16 and not I’m 24. Her name is Elisa and I believe her husband did the sound recording at their shows. He might still do it. Anyway, cute clothes, cool bio. Have a great day!

  3. Marisa~~ I know your sister and husband very well! My boyfriend, Johnny is the godfather for Sophie!…we are going out to visit them at the end of the month in good old Colorado! I was at their wedding here in Philly, so I’m sure we have met! xo

  4. Just going through this blog for the first time although I’ve loved Free People for longer. Used to go to a lot of Disco Biscuits shows myself (don’t personally know Elisa although I did take a picture for her and a mutual friend) and am wearing a Free People dress to the Phish show I’m going to tonight :)
