Office Style: Neons and Brights

Post image for Office Style: Neons and Brights

Fresh neons and loud brights have been popping all over the office lately. We love a good statement neon top and fun bracelets. We’re even scooping up neon computer cases. How do we like it styled? We love pairing the shades back to black so they really pop. Check out how we’re wearing neon for spring.

How adorable. I adore everything. The outfits, that cute pink pouch, the bracelets, the tank tops, everything. They are all so stinking cute! <3 I want to go to your store and play with everything. I wish I had one closer to home. Corte Madera is too faraway!

I would like the yellow shoes and sweater.
They are beautiful!

wow free people, I sure hope your quality has increased 3x-5x to match the many many many items you are now offering in the $300-$1000 range. Granted quality has never been your strong point but unique and cute items has always been. I’ve just noticed that your prices are getting higher and higher and this is from a very loyal customer. I was wearing free people long before there were free people stores. Just don’t get to crazy with your markups because I won’t buy from you anymore if the quality of the items that you are selling no longer match the prices. Just because you decide that you would like to put a $350 price tag on a dress does not make that dress a $350 dollar worthy dress. Especially when you are buying these dresses for like $10 dollars apiece in Indonesia or something. I love the Free People Brand but your customers are not idiots so watch the greediness factor or you may just lose your following.

I totally agree with Katie. I have also have seen your prices rise!! If they go up any more. I went to College for Fashion Design! I also needlepointe, embroider,knit, crochet, quilt, work with all varity of sewing. I can make a pattern, Fashion Illustration, tailoring, sewing and Modeling. I can do it all. I can make so many of your outfit’s and more. I really can do without FP. It is just: I do not have the time. But,if the price’s go any higher-I may just take my saving’s and start-up my own business!!! Don’t you people know that we are in a Financial downfall and it may get worse????? But, then you raise your price’s/Possibly to pay for rent. Like the FP Store at Somerset. I am sure that your rent/lease is very high for that. Could’nt you have picked a place; that was cheaper-then you could pass on the saving’s to your customer’s! I was going to apply for a job at your Somerset Store. But you probably wouldn’t pay me, what I am worth!!! My talent’s from school and my own experience have taken me far!!!!Thank you for hearing me out.

I have to agree with both Katie and Cherieboo.
I am a HUGE free people fan, I bought my first thermals about 4 years ago I think and I became instantly hooked (the incredible knits, the details, the sturdiness despite the delicateness, etc.)
But things have really changed. Each year the thermals were a little thinner but this year really topped it !!! If you compare a thermal from 3 years ago that has been worn and washed a gazillion times (there’s some slight peeling, at the most), and a new one from this year, the material is WAY WAY thinner this year. I end up constantly grabbing my old ones (from last year and before) and keep the 2 I bought this year for “special occasions” so I don’t ruin them… And same goes for the knits.
The risk here is that Free People will loose all of its youth/student base and appeal to older women, which is fine but I LOVE that Free People used to be precisely appealing to both groups (slightly wealthier people AND still affordable for high quality). Nowadays the quality is going down, and the prices go up with each new catalogue!
There are never any good promotions anymore (even for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, no free shipping weekends anymore).
And I’m saying all this with LOVE!!! Because I love this brand and I can see from many reviews on the net many long term fans think the same. Newbies do fall in love with free People (the designs are still great of course!) but soon they will find another brand and move on. So you should get back to basics and maybe create a line that stands for quality materials and durability (maybe even using organic cotton?) because paying 300$ for a polyester or viscose dress is just plain crazy.
You should hire Cherieboo btw ;)

I couldn’t agree more with Katie. I’ve worked in various boutiques that sell free people, and in years past the quality and craftmanship of each piece COMPLETELY justified the pricetag. In recent shipments, yeah, the things we have gotten are adorable….but move your elbow the wrong way and the piece is ruined. The thin fabrics, the aweful construction ( I recieved a piece in the mail where the stitching is so far apart, it looks like a fifth grader put it together)…I’m a huge fan, and loyal customer but I’ve started looking elsewhere for the product that free people USED to offer.

Such a shame – I love, love, LOVE Free People, and can only afford to buy on occasion. I think times must be hard for everyone, including FP, hence any price hikes? The thing with buying FP though, is that you buy something that is gorgeously quirky, following well-thought out designs – which I think people will always find appealing, even if it means peeps like me might be priced out. I know I’ll always come back for more, even if its for the sales rack! x

I slightly hope this isn’t an indication of 80′s style coming back. I still can’t get over the 70′s! I’m not ready to move on ;)

were those peacock tights stolen from modcloth? http://www.modcloth.com/shop/tights/black-peacock-feather-tights

suomynona -March 12, 2012, 1:44PM

@haley: sure looks like it! get them from Modcloth for a little cheaper and better reviews folks!

Melissa -March 14, 2012, 2:03PM

I’m glad other people are thinking this too- I have been noticing the insane price hikes lately and it is really turning me off of a brand that I have loved for years. I think you guys are going to start losing what was once your target audience here.
And I am especially turned off by your Vintage Loves section. You have pair of Lee denim overalls for $328.00, which I could literally find at any goodwill for ten bucks. It’s making me dislike your company because you are coming across as greedy. It also makes me feel like you are viewing your customers as being so dumb that they will just buy anything you put up as “vintage” for whatever price you think it can fetch. I can’t be the only one thinking this, right? Is anyone else getting alienated by this?!?

Caroline -April 26, 2012, 11:24AM

You guys look so cute!! Love all these looks! I’m so excited to be interning at the URBN home offices this summer and see all this inspiration up close and personal! :)

The peacock tights are everywhere as they are made by a company that sells to many retailers.
