Our Second Short Film & A Giveaway – Roshambo: Rock!

In Roshambo: Rock, we go back in time to uncover a piece in Sheila and Chris’s relationship history before they were reunited so serendipitously on a street in New York. At this point in time, Sheila and Chris have just parted ways, and she finds her world crumbling down. To get him off of her mind, her best friends, played by Michele Ouellet and Britt Maren, swoop in and whisk her away to Rio de Janeiro. The three beauties wander the city, throw on electric bikinis to hit the water, and dance the night away when an intriguing love interest, played by Spanish polo player, Diego Osorio, makes his way into picture…

Watch the short film below and then tweet this post with the hashtag #RoshamboRock – one winner will receive a $100 Free People gift card and a goodie bag of summer essentials!

Her flashbacks are short clips from Roshambo…was this second film originally suppose to take place right after the second and then that idea was scraped?

it’s funny that they´re in rio and you can´t listen a brazilian song, can´t see a carioca girl… only boys playing samba.. this video really sucks.

Tweeted this great video!!!! Been anticipating it and was definitely not disappointed <3

Faith -May 6, 2013, 4:14PM

Dang! What if we don’t have a twitter account!

Such a dreamy video though.


Victoria Luna -May 6, 2013, 4:31PM

aaawww man this was too dreamy and magical, made my monday!

sedona -May 6, 2013, 4:47PM

Super cool! I loved the flash backs.

Jenny ekberg -May 6, 2013, 5:10PM

Hi there, loved it, wrote about it in my blog immediately I saw it a few days ago:

Jenny ekberg -May 6, 2013, 5:14PM

Hi FP, I really, really, REALLY :0) want to order the FP one Corset Ribbon maxi skirt, but in the darker colour that the model is wearing in the photo with the super cute fringe bralette. I have 3 year old twins so I know that the ivory colour will not stay that colour for very long if I buy it. Do you know when the peach/clay colour will be available? Thanks, Jenny

fp julia -May 6, 2013, 6:10PM

Hey Jenny! Should be online in the next couple of days!!

jenny ekberg -May 6, 2013, 7:57PM

Thanks Julia, I am very excited!

Marie -May 6, 2013, 7:58PM

This was fantastic!!!!!!! I am now dying to know what happens next?! The ending was perfect and left me wondering what happened with the guy in Rio and the guy in Paris. There weren’t many words, but for this story had there been, it would have ruined the beautiful city of Rio and the masterful film. I love the video FP and I hope you make another following up this video

Archer -May 6, 2013, 8:19PM

now i want to see what’s to come next.
i just had a baby and this left me aching for my pre-baby days where i travelled with my three best friends. those were the best days of my life…. as much as i love my baby, its bittersweet knowing it’ll be a while before i can travel sans bébé again

Alexie -May 6, 2013, 8:58PM

really beautiful film. it’ll leave me dreaming until the next one

rae -May 6, 2013, 9:02PM

“In Roshambo: Rock, we go back in time to uncover a piece in Sheila and Chris’s relationship history before they were reunited so serendipitously on a street in New York.” Woah, our the first commenter and I alone in noticing that the flash backs are FROM Roshambo. Whats the word FP? Kind of disappointed. Was never a fan of prequels anyway.

Taylor -May 7, 2013, 1:35AM

While I do indeed love these beautiful films, I have to say that I loved the first one more. This one was a great story but I think what captivated me about the first one was that it REALLY showcased the clothing. Honestly watching Roshambo was the deciding factor on a shirt that I ended up purchasing. In the catalogue and online it looked plain but when I saw the model wearing it in the film I saw the fabric move and the top really work its magic. The only piece that really caught my eye was her dress in the party scene. I had to go back and re-watch it a few times just to see the other pieces and even still, it wasn’t focused on the other girls clothing at all. I love these stories but would definitely love if the next video added a little more clothing shots as well as the story :)

Sophie Milan -May 7, 2013, 2:36AM

I’ll be waiting for the next installment! :) ♥

Shaelyn -May 7, 2013, 3:01AM

The epitome of first-world problems. Oh nooo….I’m so beautiful, I have amazing friends, I have a wardrobe full of amazing clothing, my friends and I can just up-and-leave for Rio, and this amazingly sexy Brazilian guy likes me. Why is the world so hard?

But gosh darn it, I loved the cinematography. Well played, Free People. Well played.

Victoria -May 7, 2013, 8:33AM


Beautiful video! Though it definitely seems like a sequel, not a prequel. Typo?

yuka -May 7, 2013, 10:17AM

tweeted :) and its really an amazing video! i love it!!!

Jen -May 7, 2013, 11:37AM

So cheesy

helena -May 7, 2013, 1:49PM

just so you know, in brazil we speak portuguese, not spanish…

Rosalie -May 7, 2013, 8:11PM

I tweeted! :) love these videos, keep them coming please! :D <3

rodrigo -May 8, 2013, 2:38PM

For those of you who didnt get it… it seems to me that the characters are not intended to speak portuguese, sheila is playing sheila from spain, chris is playing chris from brooklyn, and diego is playing diego from spain… if you find out a bit more about who plays who this will come clear to you, @helena. the characters go to brazil to have a good time, not to pretend to be brazilian… :) hope this clear you from the chip in your shoulder!

Amelie -May 9, 2013, 10:07AM

much, much better the first one! I love the first one! photography, clothes, actors, story…
Diego Osorio!!??… come on! he’s a spoilt brat! and a bad actor… nada que ver con la filosofia Free People!
I’ll be waiting for the next… :)

Lizzie -May 13, 2013, 2:00PM

Hi could you do one of your great hair tutorials on how to do Sheila’s hair? As I’ve just put in a new fringe and the combo of curly/waves and fringe look great. :)

Erica H. -May 15, 2013, 8:18AM

Rita -May 22, 2013, 1:34PM
