    Saturday DO: breathe and smile. I used to always hate pigeon pose – the hip opening exercise which you are supposed to relax into for several minutes at the end of a yoga practice. It hurt me, and having to sit through it for so long just made it worse. I’m already horrible at sitting (…) Read more »

    Style File: Merchandise Assistant – Knits

    I first met this week’s style file girl when she was still an intern. We had one of those classic intern moments with a broken copy machine, ten different types of toner, and too many blinking arrows. We ended up figuring it out while chatting back and forth a bit. She has now been promoted (…) Read more »

    It’s no secret that Free People has some of the best jewelry around. Unique, ethnic-inspired pieces are aplenty on our website. I love the small curated collection of jewelry, Cup of Tea, that is live on the website now, but as usual with Free People jewelry, I’m a bit overwhelmed by the amazing options, and (…) Read more »

    Tons of good fashion inspiration around the office today! From killer gladiator-style shorts to kooky sweaters and pretty prairie dresses I was deeply impressed. What’s your favorite look from the Free People team was wearing today? (…) Read more »

    This recipe idea came to me one day when I was out for drinks with a couple friends sipping on sangria. The restaurant we were at made a carbonated sangria. Sipping it down, I had a stroke of genius right then and there. I wondered what it would be like to use Kombucha instead of (…) Read more »

    DO: look at something that makes you smile. I started these Saturday DOs with the importance of laughter and self entertainment. But there are moments where you have nothing to put that smile on your face, and so you look to other places for that good laugh. I’ve realized how important it is sometimes to (…) Read more »

    Meet this week’s style file girl – the visual merchandising assistant at the Free People home offices. She is one of the sweetest most humble people, and when you visit her desk you’re sure to get licked up and down by her friendly (canine) partner in crime, Dill. I was drawn to her style because (…) Read more »

    Wearing prints can take a certain amount of confidence and skill. Knowing what to pair them with and how to place them on your body takes a good eye. I love getting inspiration from the other ladies around the office who have gotten the trick down. So whether it’s floral, plaid, paisley, or cheetah and (…) Read more »

    One of our favorite trends here at Free People are high waisted pants. They’re great for mixing up those proportions, and can be worn with a variety of looks. Maybe you’re going for super polished, or perhaps you’d rather look like you stepped right out of Woodstock ’69. However you wear them, high waisted pants (…) Read more »

    One day I was on Vogue.com when I saw when of their editors wearing this really cool beaded necklace. It almost looked like it was constructed using safety pins, so I tried them out to see if I could pull off the look by making the necklace myself. The end result is really cool. The (…) Read more »

    I probably should have discovered The Head and the Heart last year when they first came out with their album, but it wasn’t until this year when they remastered a couple of the tracks, added some new ones, and re-released their self-titled album, that I discovered their music. (…) Read more »

    I love spring rolls, but when they’re fried, I can’t really eat them without feeling some guilt. That’s why these rice paper spring rolls are great. Fill them up with fruit and veggies, and you have a guilt free, fresh, summer hors d’oeuvre. You can find the rice paper wrappers at any Asian market, or (…) Read more »
