I’m dying to try out the Fitted with Daisies dress in Hibiscus, but it isn’t available in stores yet. Any word on when it will arrive, or is it an online exclusive?

Amber -January 12, 2012, 12:01PM

And by stores, I meant California stores. I can’t be the only Californian who much prefers the “New York look.”

I think the last picture is beautiful but these models were a bit of a disappointment in the catalog :/

me -January 12, 2012, 2:55PM

Sheis scary skinny. That last shot, her arms are rails. A walking skeleton. Scary stuff FP.

rose -January 12, 2012, 3:26PM

i agree. there were some photos that were beautiful but compared to other catalogues this one was a disappointment. the models, although im sure are lovely in real life, were super skinny, scary even. i feel like many of the LA photos were very catalouge-y (i know this is a catalogue but still, its free people).

Anonymous -January 12, 2012, 4:37PM

Yeah, and with great subject matter, LA and New York, I can’t believe that was it! Usually the FP catalogs tell a story and you want to jump in! And wear everything! It just didn’t happen this month…

The pictures if her eating pizza and drinking a soda are HILARIOUS!! What were they thinking?!? I still love FP, I guess they can’t be perfection every month! Almost though…

mel -January 12, 2012, 5:32PM

are you people looking at the same catalog as me because i love it! i was actually kind of disappointed in december’s, but this one is awesome! amazing clothes, amazing models, amazing photos.

EV -January 12, 2012, 6:12PM


Sophy -January 12, 2012, 7:39PM

Does anyone else want to know how she got her hair to look like that in the last photo? It looks like a twist braid on top of her head, but I can’t quite make it out… I am soooooo curious! I want my hair to look like that!!

sarah -January 12, 2012, 8:26PM

I’m sure that somebody with her body type indulges in pizza all the time. Seriously, FP, she is too skinny; this is not a good image to portray to the world.


Anonymous -January 12, 2012, 8:32PM

…And the blank stare with an open mouth

Anne -January 12, 2012, 11:40PM

Sarah, I agree… the models are to thin, disappointing.

me -January 13, 2012, 12:19AM

@sophy, noooooo seems what is most curious here is the sickly stick thin body beneath the hair changing the subject won’t change the posts. @mel perhaps a FP employee? Model thin is never going away and isn’t the issue however how far will we go?? She is ghastly looking. How far will it go?

holly cromer -January 13, 2012, 11:41AM

i madly love all of these photos! i don’t think there was anything wrong with the models. some people are just thin and waifish naturally and i’m sure they feel the same way about people saying they are too thin as you do if someone says you are too fat.

Anonymous -January 13, 2012, 2:37PM

Its not about them being thin, it’s bad modeling

hilary Ludvick -January 13, 2012, 2:52PM

i completely agree, these girls looks sick and emaciated. that is the most commonly used phrase in the fashion business – “oh she’s NATURALLY 100 pounds and 5’11.” very few girls are. most of them are just not eating so they can keep their jobs. gross

emma wubson -January 13, 2012, 2:55PM

the last picture is disgusting. her chest and arms look like a 11 year old boy who is waiting to go through puberty. i realize free people isnt going to start using size 12 girls or anything, they are going to be thin and thats fine, they are models! but this is way too far. send that girl to treatment for an eating disorder.

Me -January 13, 2012, 3:11PM

Bones and arms are not waif even her pose and face look so…well emaciated nothing life affirming in that pose or body. She looks like she is starving for life to enter her bones. Found this online:
There really is only ONE question…. how far will it go?? It gets worse and worse and it is so anti-women anti girls and FP doesn’t have to hire even a size 8 model let alone 12 but can they hire healthy women that aren’t dying in front of the camera? Can’t we send a better message to the age group that buys FP and is also the most vulnerable?

Anonymous -January 13, 2012, 4:23PM

True, FP usually uses cute, and thin (but not too thin) girls who look like they have a lot of life in them! they just dropped the ball this month. Everything about these two girls looked unatatural, besides just too skinny.

Anonymous -January 13, 2012, 4:43PM

I hope FP can appreciate the feedback, I am a huge fan and buy online every month and will remain loyal, with that being said- The catalog just missed the mark, I was expecting something big for LA and New York.

fp julia -January 13, 2012, 4:54PM

hey guys – we hear you and we really appreciate the feedback!

Anonymous -January 13, 2012, 4:58PM

Thanks!!! Dont worry, We still love you!!! Thank you!

Anonymous -January 13, 2012, 5:24PM

Thanks for listening :)

mel -January 13, 2012, 8:34PM

this issue gets so old to me. i hope the opinions of like five people doesn’t alter what free people chooses to do in their future catalogues because i thought this one was really great. the clothes are so amazing this season. and no, just because i think this way doesn’t mean i’m a free people employee. not everyone has a critical opinion of thin. their body types are far closer to a healthy weight that a majority of americans, fyi.

barb -January 13, 2012, 9:42PM

i love this catalog! i love the models! i think they are beautiful pictures!

elaine -January 13, 2012, 10:20PM

could you please do more hair tutorials? i love her hair in the last two pictures!!

madison -January 23, 2012, 1:46PM

honestly i thought it was an amazing catalogue. there are alot of rude opinions about the models. they are really good at what they do in my opinion. and being a girl of not many curves , seeing women with smaller frames that arent as endowed as some looking beautiful and feminine in these clothes is inspiring. and unlively ?!?! they look like pitchers of health. jess looks like sunshine in the look with the crop top and lace skirt with chucks. as does karlie next to the replica of the statue of liberty . some girls are just naturally thin. and healthy. people should really think things through before they open thier trap. this catalogue was overall far from dissapointment. thanks fp :)

Allison -January 25, 2012, 3:02PM

I’m 5’10 and 112 pounds and I eat literally everything. Sometimes it’s just good metabolism and genes.

stephanie -January 25, 2012, 9:02PM

those stacked wingtip shoes remind me of francesca lia block’s, “weetzie bat”.

stephanie -January 25, 2012, 9:05PM

those stacked wingtip shoes remind me of francesca lia block’s book, “weetzie bat”.

ajas -February 3, 2012, 7:11PM
