Post image for How To Style FP Thermals: 5 Ways to Wear

Did you feel it? I felt it…

The chill in the air this morning. No, summer is not over just yet, but fall is definitely creeping in. And that means time to break out the thermals.

FP thermals are my favorite – they always fit perfectly, come in the best colors, and best of all they always have something unique either in the shape or the detailing, that sets them apart and makes them interesting. We have several thermal styles right now so we thought we’d have a little fun and make a video showing different ways to style thermals! They can be worn with shorts (and tights in fall!), skinny jeans, widelegs, tea-length skirts, you name it. Check out the video, which features some of our lovely home office gals!

Song is “So Long” by the Fruit Bats.

Outfit One: we the free lou flannel cuff thermal worn with quilted leather pant, levon platform and jenoah floppy brim hat.

Outfit Two: crafted cuff thermal worn with rangers high rise wideleg jean,cara pocket hip belt and tapestry tote.

Outfit Three: stripe love bug thermal worn with fp vegan leather shorts.

Outfit Four: solid love bug thermal worn with high waisted zippered wideleg jean and trimmed tapestry duffel.

Outfit Five: lou flannel cuff thermal worn with the floral print sheer gaucho, jeanoah floppy brim hat and tapestry tote.

Under the thermals each girl is wearing one of our seamless intimates.

Shop all fp thermals!

Post image for Office Style

Despite the fact that the weather has been a little strange lately, the fashion in the office has still been quite innovative;

Cute beach dresses found in surf shacks by the oceans worn with biker boots, heavy vibrant embroidery, denim skirts tied in knots and texture in lace.

Come rain or shine we still get inspired.

Post image for Store Style: The Extreme Vintage Flares

One of our favorite fashion trends going into fall is the wideleg pant. We have several wideleg styles right now, including one of my personal favorites, the extreme vintage flares (and their new cousin, the extreme corduroy flare!). These jeans can be a little intimidating if you don’t now how to style them, and luckily our store girls are here to help out with just that! They always have great styling ideas, and these photos demonstrate our love for another trend as well – the crop top! In particular, one of our newest, cutest ones – the thermal love crop top. We love pairing wideleg bottoms with cropped tops, adding extra layers over top or underneath as the weather gets cooler.

From San Jose: The extreme vintage flares worn with the thermal love crop top, arizona blanket wrap and jenoah floppy brim hat.

From Burlington, MA: the extreme vintage flares worn with the stripe cowl neck sweater.


From Pittsburgh: the extreme vintage flares worn with the cannaregio mesh top and tribal triangle collar.


From Costa Mesa, CA: the extreme vintage flares worn with the vivaldi voile and lace slip and thermal love crop top.


From Bucktown, IL: the extreme vintage flares worn with the shrunken stripe pullover, ancient stone pendant and eagle gem bib necklace.


From San Vincente, CA: the extreme vintage flares worn with the crochet fringe tunic, the we the free lou flannel cuff thermal and ancient stone pendant.


From Natick, MA: the extreme vintage flares worn with the rialto bridge crop top and colorblock cardigan.


From Studio City, CA: left; the extreme vintage flares worn with the open stitch pullover, right; the extreme vintage flares worn with the thermal love crop top and dursoduro maxi cardigan.


From Towson, MD: again, the extreme vintage flares worn with the vivaldi voile and lace slip and thermal love crop top!

shop all wideleg denim and wideleg bottoms.

so from what I can tell, my photos have been removed from every blog post that I was in. If you guys wanted to erase me from FP history, maybe you should have deleted the caption too. Work your ass off for the company for 4 years with SHIT pay and then get deleted. Is that how this works? really smooth guys.

THIS IS JUST SOO ME! :) Cannot wait to finally go CRAZZZY in a STORE!! Everything just ~speaks~

Post image for Fall Fashion Trends: Monochromatic Color Palette

After the light and dreamy summer fabrics in pastels and muted shades, the colors of fall always seem so rich and bold. This year is certainly no exception, but we’re taking it a step further: make a fashion statement this fall by stepping out in head-to-toe emerald, mustard, maroon, cerulean, or whatever color you are feeling that day. Wearing one color from head to toe is daring – chances are you will be noticed as you walk down the street, but when it’s done well it’s perfectly chic and fashionable. Break up a monochromatic ensemble with a little dash of black or beige to lessen the dramatic look or go all out and make that fashion statement. Here’s a look at some of our favorite shades of color to wear from head-to-toe this fall!

shop seafoam and emerald shades of color.



shop mustard and camel shades of color.


shop blush and rust shades of color.


shop all shades of color.

Stay tuned for a post showing how we’d wear monochromatic outfits this fall – and tell us, what do you think of this trend? Would you wear it?

samantha -Sep 04, 2011, 6:11PM
I love the dark blues. where can i find that dark blue velvet blazer??
jenny -Aug 25, 2011, 5:30PM
Hell Ya I'd wear it. I'm always "drinking the Kool-Aid" when it comes to Free People!~ Show me how to put together lots of outfits...maybe like 20 from each color group?? Keep in mind, many peeps aren't creative like you girls. Do it for me, and I'll buy it up!~

Post image for Thursday Poll: La Dolce Vita

I’m in love with our new August lookbook that just dropped this week. Titled, La Dolce Vita, it literally means “the sweet life” – and it is exactly that. The rich colors, elegant details, and luxe fabrics make me want to escape to a chateau in the brisk cool of fall. Once I was there, I’d put my feet up and munch on elegant sweets just because I could. If you were able to pull together any one of these looks, what would be your outfit for living La Dolce Vita?

Look 1

Look 2

Look 3


Look 4


Look 5

Opps...I meant to vote for Look 3! The photo numbers are kinda confusing :/

Post image for About a Girl: Amy Soderlind of San Francisco

Not long before I went to San Francisco for Outside Lands, one of my co-workers sent me a link to a blog that she thought was worth checking out, called Refuses to Label. I clicked on the link and spent the next hour or so perusing the inspirational posts and photos on the blog. The writer, Amy Soderlind, is a stylist and writer living right outside of San Francisco on a beautiful farm. Her style is impeccable and I love her poetic way of writing – check out some photos below, along with a writeup about what she loves most about her city.

San Francisco carries character and integrity in every little crevasse of her small size. Take a walk and in just two blocks you are in another world. New smells, subcultures that I must sit and appreciate, really take in. I go nowhere without my note/sketch pad, and I do say: the most incredible quotes come from some of the crazies on the morning MUNI rides. I love that I can get from one end of the city to the other in less than 30 minutes.

The history that she holds also brings many like minded free spirits to live and create… the Beat Generation AND the Summer of Love?  yes please.

Taking Sundays to myself… City Lights Books, Trieste and Vesuvio: reels playing in my mind of Kerouac perusing the shelves and writing on the small table tops… Ginsberg spitting out words and phrases that still blow our minds today. The De Young or MOMA…. and yes, the many many beautiful small ma and pa vintage shops that I tend to spend far too much time in.

My favorite thing about this city? The beautiful people that are apart of my life here…. extraordinary talents that make my life rich with happiness.

Dressing in San Francisco is a year round challenge. Our summers are in October (for 3 short weeks) and the rest of the year is unpredictable with certainty of daily fog. I actually love this very variable when it comes to dressing – You can wear boots! Socks! Hats! Scarves! Jeans! Layers…. opens up doors of options that usually are shut tightly in August.


In this Look: Vintage Crochet Dress, Vintage black leather belt, AA Hat, Vintage combat boots, Afghan Necklace


In this Look:Thrifted Harem Pant, AA Tank, Vintage Cord Bomber, Diesel Boots, Panama Bag, Painted Bird Glasses, All Vintage Jewelry from around the Globe.

In this Look: Ernest Sewn High Waist Denim, Crop Tee, Vintage Bag, Vintage Belt, Vintage Jewelry Africa and Bali, Printed Silk Jacket.

Here are my current Free People favorites:


Stretch Suede Leggings, Zipper Ankle Boot, New Romantics Pleated Tunic, Nova Drawstring Bucket Bag.

Girl’s got good taste! I’m telling you, she is one to watch… refinery 29 just featured her this week! And be sure to check out her amazing blog, Refuses to Label. Thank you Amy!

Ruby van Dort -Oct 19, 2014, 2:21PM
Hi, I have a slightly strange question. First of all i apologize if my english isn't perfect! I am from holland so i make some mistakes now and then. I was wondering if you could help me out, i have tried to get in contact with amy a few times now(email/facebook) but i am affraid my messages get delivered in her spam folder. The reason i am trying to get in contact with her is this: A while ago i saw a picture of Amy on Pinterest in a awesomeeee white dress. Now i have been looking for this dress everywhere in The netherlands but can not find it. So i wanted to ask her where she bought her dress so maybe i can order it online or something. Now i am writing to you because maybe you know where the white dress comes from. Hmm i now realise i can't add a picture to this post uhm. Omg i am just looking to find a picture online to add the link ans i think i found it on your site?it is the white dress she is wearing.. I think it is called the "mexican wedding dress" but when i clicked on the link i see that it is unavailable:( is there a way that i can buy this dress maybe via via someone? I love it sooooo much! Sorry for the long and crazy questions hope you guys can help me out or can get me in contact woth Amy so she can maybe help me out. I have been looking for 2 months already so i am kind of on a mission right now haha. Hope to hear from you, Cheers from the cold Netherlands! Ruby
