Post image for Style File: Fashion Blogger & Creative Researcher

The fashion blogger and creative researcher here at Free People is a little pixie with amazing style. Using her sharp British eye she blends rich colors and details, and always knows how to style vintage pieces in a way that strays from dowdy. She’s one of those select few who can pull of a vintage floral-print jumpsuit and make it look modernly chic. She rocks the borrowed from the boy look with nostalgic touches of corduroy, elbow patches, and canvas – keeping her silhouette streamlined, but relaxed. A lot of her clothes she either makes herself or she’s picked up on a vintage store run. And then there are those pieces it seems that she is religiously attached to. You can almost bet she’ll have on her black lace-up walking boots and silver rings. They seem to go with everything she wears, always adapting to the spirit of each outfit.

Post image for Follow Your Feet

What is everybody doing this weekend? It’s First Friday in Philly, it’s Fall – meaning fun stuff like apple picking and pumpkin carving – and Monday is a holiday (for some)!

We just launched this shoe lookbook on our website and I can’t stop looking at it. I love all the little scenarios they created, depicting pretty much everything I want to be doing this weekend – zipping around the city on a scooter or bike, chilling in the park with a book and a puppy, picking up groceries for a dinner party, hitting up a concert, or having brunch with a best friend or loved one.

Post image for Office Style: It’s a Wash

There’s something so hot about denim. The laid back approach to style has always been a favorite of mine. It’s never over or under dressed, you look casual and cool, but fashionable and chic at the same time. Denim just never looks bad…

Check out how we’re styling it here at the home offices this week.

Layering perfection paired with a sheer black dress and Joe Lace Up Over the Knee Boots

Denim and stripes, a classic combo that never fails

How badass is the attitude of this vest?

This tough girl look is spot on in fashion right now. Just throw on some tights and ankle boots with those cutoffs, and you’re good to go!

The chambray button-down crochet – it goes so well with everything!

Post image for Thursday Poll: La-la-legs

It might be fall, but I don’t know that we’re completely ready to fully cover up those legs. Tights are a great way to bring shorts and other summer items into the cooler weather. They’re also really fun to wear with all the different statements they can make. Will your legs be sexy, loud, fun, or warm – what kind of tight are you wearing for fall?

Post image for Fall Fashion from our Favorite Bloggers

This week’s featured blogger is our good friend Natalie of the blog Natalie Off Duty! Here’s one of her favorite looks for fall (featuring our polka dot boho top!) and what she’s most excited about this season.

What trend are  you most excited about for Fall?

For Fall, I am sooo excited to get back into layering, especially with knits. I love something chunky on top with something a little more fitted at the bottom. Playing around with proportions is great for fall weather. Right now, I love mixing something very classic with something totally unexpected and fun. I look forward to everything from printed blouses to shearling coats!

Favorite designers right now?

My favorite designers right now are Chloe, Stella McCartney, Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang, and Isabel Marant.

Your must have Free People item for Fall?

The Genteel V-Neck Sweater. It’s super classic and looks great with just about everything. It also looks like something I could just cuddle in!

What is your favorite Fall activity?

I LOVE playing in ball pits or riding my bike through the parks!

I love how she styled the polka dot blouse! Thank you Natalie!

moonchild -Apr 08, 2012, 11:11PM
^ sooo ball pits and people riding their bikes through parks are non existent in the east coast? how pretentious

Post image for Milan Fashion Week

Milan’s fashion week has come to a close and I’ve been scrolling through the shows for inspiration. It was bright and glitzy, everything that you would expect from a city that enjoys the finest things in life.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Marni, there’s something so incredibly quirky going on with it aesthetics; whether it’s the unique colour palette or the juxtaposition of ad-hoc accessories against geometric prints. In this collection I was seeing a little touch of 60’s housewife which worked in a weird kind of way – that’s what to expect from Consuelo Castiglioni.

Roberto Cavalli’s show brought glitz to my eyes the artisanship won me. The collection seemed like it belonged at the couture shows at times. I loved the contrast of gold with leopard and florals against the black. It was a dream to look at.

Milan shone bright, next stop Paris!

The textiles are so intriguing... I love that last dress especially. I love the idea of combining black with pastels! Very interesting silhouettes as well. www.forsurejadore.blogspot.com

Post image for Designer Jewelry by DANNIJO

This month’s featured jewelry designer is one of my personal favorites – Dannijo. The New York based label was founded by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder, self-taught jewelry designers who learned how to wirework by playing with their father’s medical tools as kids. Their pieces are handmade using various metals – oxidized silver, gold and gunmetal – mixed with bold colorful elements like druzy quartz, crystals, aqua aura and pearls.

A combination of bohemian whimsy and old-world sophistication, their pieces are incredibly beautiful and eye-catching, making them a favorite among celebrities and fashion designers.

Their inspiration:

“For SS12 we were really inspired by Indonesian surf culture, western elements and Aztec artifacts — think masks, fossils and ancient jewelry dug up from the past. We wanted the collection to be really wearable and able to be stacked and layered as always so we had fun with color and silhouettes while keeping the collection very signature Dannijo. It’s sort of a modern take on remnants of the past.”

I love how the necklaces are styled with vintage tees and faux fur in our October catalog – on the left, the Stella Collar, and on the right, the Tribal Rhaise Pendant.

And the rings? The rings are out of this world!

Lucas Stone Ring, Dai Ring, Jacinda Ring.

Post image for Style File: Meadow Design Assistant

Style file this week is dedicated to the design assistant on our meadow team. She’s a fabulous dresser with extremely feminine taste. Dresses are her specialty, and her collection is out of this world. Delicate lace, dainty peter pan collars, and retro polka dots are just the details that showed up in her numbers this week. Everything she wears feels like something you’ve never seen before – it looks like a vintage piece with a great story behind it, or a uniquely handmade piece. It’s like she finds special pieces and gives them a home. Her collection of feminine ankle socks is another great aspect to her style. She’s often wearing a pair, and manages to pull off the look so well. No doubt, she has a great wardrobe, and her styling is on point, but her best accessory is the huge smile that lights up every outfit she wears and brings it to life.

I fell in love with delicate beauty of this lace on her vintage dress!
