If you haven’t heard about Brooklyn-based band TEEN yet, you will soon. The band was formed by former Here We Go Magic keyboard-player Teeny Lieberson, who wrote a solo EP and recruited her sisters Lizzie and Katherine and longtime friend Jane Herships to round out the band with instruments and more vocals. The EP would be the foundation of the band’s debut album, In Limbo, which came out on August 28th. Read More
It’s official: fall is upon us, and one thing we are excited about here at Free People is the return of sweater season! There’s nothing better than that cozy, comfy sweater that you can throw on over anything and cuddle up in against the cool air. I love the weather in September and October because you can still wear some of your summer clothes, but just add an extra layer of warmth with a good sweater. Here’s a closer look at some of our favorites… Read More

I go through phases every once in a while when I get really sick of my apartment, and that’s when I know it’s time for some redecorating. It tends to happen around the turn of the season, which makes sense. As the weather and our wardrobes are changing, spring’s pastel palette and neon summer hues are replaced by rustic, muted shades and cozy textures. For my home, though, I want to bring some green indoors so that I can still enjoy it once the leaves fall from the trees. Here’s some of my current home décor inspiration!
Light hair decorated in pastel tones is a look we love, softly twisted into sweet braids. The colors are subtle and dreamlike – My Little Pony comes to mind. We’re huge fans of colored hair here at Free People, whether its dip dye, streaks or full color. So when we saw a lot of inspiration tears showing pastel-colored hair twisted into braids, we fell more in love. Read More
Runway shows for Spring/Summer 2013 are well underway, and the style on the runway – as well off the runway – has been quite inspiring. From New York to London and now Milan, it’s the time of year that fashion comes alive. We love looking to the streets to see what real girls are wearing. Read More
We love the look and feel of dream catchers. They add a positive, creative energy to any space. We’re especially fond of the dream catchers made by Catherine Rising, the designer we’ve worked with to offer our fans the chance to shop for a dream catcher of their own. We wanted to know more about Catherine and her creative process, and if you read the interview below, you’ll get to know more about this creative soul and what inspires her. Read More
If you’re nail polish obsessed like we are, get excited about the new shades that are coming in for fall. Think deep, dark and mysterious in shades of red, navy and green, offset by cooler tones. This season nail color will become darker and more romantic to go along with your fall wardrobe. Read More
UPDATE: This previously ran on August the 30th but we thought we’d bring it back for a little DIY you can do this Sunday. Go out for a stroll and collect some small twigs and get DIY bus.
Do you ever want to fill the air with something delicate, just have something drifting back and forth freely in a little space in your home, desk space, or backyard? I find it relaxing watching something move gently in the air; it’s peaceful and helps create a peaceful mind.
UPDATE: This post originally ran on July 25 2012, but beautiful music never gets old and we wanted to share it again!
Family Band released their new album Grace & Lies yesterday and it is a beautiful record of haunting music that stays with you long after you stop listening. Read More
