Office Style

First off – I just have to post the phenomenon that was the cold shoulder denim shirt today. Everywhere you turned it was like there were clones wandering the building. Each girl styled it differently, just going to show how much of a personal thing style can be – even when you’re all wearing the same item.

The top looks great paired with a statement necklace. The use of the Tribal Collar Necklace is great here.

Our assistant stylist changed it up by layering the Dotty Lace Tee underneath.

It’s not cold shoulder, but everywhere I turned there was chambray today, so I had to include this one. Below, more double – or should I say “triple” – vision. We’re all rocking the Boucle Textured Jacket (pssst… it’s on sale)

And now, a few more fashion moments that caught my eye this week..

Not sure how to wear the sheer NR Glamourai Pant? I think this might be the perfect example.

I’ve noticed this look (pumps and anklet) on Ashley Olsen, and when I saw our intimates buyer sporting it, I think I got a bit too excited.

Thursday Poll: Western-Inspired Jewels

You all saw our December Catalog last week. Its pages are full of western-inspired apparel, but what you may not have noticed is that we’re also showing some pretty awesome jewels to go along with it. These pieces combine Native American influences with leather-clad, tobacco spittin’ cowboys to form what we now think of as western jewelry.  To get the right feel, it’s about rough organic elements with a sort of practicality to them. The pieces combine tarnished metals and statement leather with hints of turquoise and ivory.  Did I mention that these would make great gift items for a special someone? Which is your favorite western-inspired piece?

FASHION trend: Colored shirts and high neck jewelry!

As of late I’m pretty much all about shirts, I feel like I’m back in my school days again but I like it. I button them right up to the top, wear them under dresses or sweaters with the collar peeking out or just on their own with jeans. My new obsession is collar detail and finding ways to jazz up the collar and make it stand out a little. High neck necklaces are perfect for this; I like to wear them under the collar so it achieves a lovely centre piece. It’s sophisticated but with a bit of fun.  To wear with these shirts to finish the look off I’m addicted to cobalt blue nail polish just like in our December book!

Would you wear this look?

Fashion Bloggers invade Free People Home Office!

Yesterday was such a fun work day! We invited New York City based fashion bloggers Natalie of Natalie Off Duty, Christina of Trop Rouge and Claire of De Lune to come down to our home office for a day of styling with some of our newest product.  These girls are beautiful and SO much fun! We had a blast hanging out with them and they went to town trying on clothes and taking photos around our home office. We ended the day by taking them to one of our favorite restaurants in Philly, Parc, a Parisian style Brasserie on Rittenhouse Square, for delicious food and drinks.

Here are some photos from the day, and stay tuned because next week we’ll show you some of the outfits they put together and which items they liked best!

Shoe Style: Western Boots

If you follow us on twitter, you know that today is a little thing called “Tuesday Shoesday” – a celebration of awesome shoe style :) With that in mind, today I thought I’d highlight some of our newest boots that are right up my alley! We love western style boots right now – they are perfect to take your basic jeans and tee up a notch, adding a little something cool and special to a simple look. The pattern inset boots add some funky print and color, and a little bit of stitching or a buckle adds a unique touch.

The Caballero Ankle Boot worn with FP Skinny Cords.

The Hayden Stitch Boot looks awesome with some colored denim! Also shown is the Sixties Roller Bag.

Can’t wait to share photos with all of you. Another 5 hour drive ahead, and then we’re off on an 8 hour night train to Sa Pa.  See you soon!
