Our lingerie buyer has teamed one of our latest bralettes with items that archieve a very fashion forward demure look. We couldn’t think of a more stylish way to
channel this lingerie as outerwear trend.

Teamed with a simple tea length black skirt a leopard belt and block heels. It’s a perrrrfect transitional piece as the warmer days are slowly creeping in!

I really love the makeshift belt Aline Weber is wearing with the Hooded Maxi dress! I wish I could see a better picture of it...or that it was a FP item I could buy :) Inspires me to be creative either way, which is one of the many things I love about Free People!
catie -Mar 18, 2011, 3:51PM

Post image for sxsw

music festival season is here! the SXSW music festival kicks off today in austin. this festival has always eluded me – there’s always some reason why i don’t go. last year i was supposed to go, but instead i was on the couch recovering from ankle surgery. anyway, i’m kicking myself for not going this year. the lineup is so extensive it can seem a little overwhelming but there are soooo many good bands playing, and it’s a great opportunity to catch them in a small, intimate venue.

i made a playlist below of some of the bands i’m into who will be there, and if i was going to austin, here are the items i would pack!

for me, the key to packing for festivals is picking a few easy items i can mix and match, like skinny jeans, white top, denim shirt, a little black dress in case i feel like dressing up at night, and a pair of boots.  i would definitely bring the cara pocket hip belt – a perfect festival belt so you don’t need to bother with a bag! and i would accessorize with some rad boot riders and a bag charm by the 2 bandits. throw everything in the mali pattern messenger, along with the aventurine pendant, bowie band ring, sunglasses and a journal, and hit the road!

Post image for daughters of the revolution

There are two beautiful dresses in our March book from the label Daughters of the Revolution – beautiful graphic dresses that are ideal for a vacation as beach cover ups or dressed up for a day to night look.

Here’s a little about the designers;

Daughters of the Revolution designer, Emily Cadenhead, creates her clothes to evoke the sensibility of freedom, nature, love, and femininity that have marked her life. Her parents are hippies who live an environmentally friendly lifestyle, which liberally encourages creativity. Growing up in Malibu and Palm Springs with nature outside her window, Emily spent most of her upbringing painting and drawing. In 2007, she started Daughters of the Revolution with a small collection of hand painted dresses.

Daughters of the Revolution is a family business committed to sustainable design. The team works on a micro-level carefully selecting ethically and environmentally responsible techniques for their garments. Daughters of the Revolution uses a combination of organic clothes, natural fibers and silks. Much of their sequins and beadwork are made of recycled materials. Emily’s print designs echo nature and fairytale with recurring motifs of flowers, seashells, feathers, animal and ethic prints. The focus of the design is comfort above all else therefore developing a loyal following of women from around the world who love the collection. Daughters of the Revolution is now carried in over 200 stores worldwide as a celebration of the female form, freedom, nature, love and happiness!

Post image for march moodboards

our creative team sent me some outtakes from the march catalog that they didn’t end up using, so i decided to have a little fun with them and create some mood boards – each centered around a theme: castaway, in the city, and swim.

castaway

she treads barefoot through the sand, her skin tickled by the salt and sand.  she dances along, dipping her toes in the ocean and stopping to pick up sea shells that shine like pearls. she drapes herself in sheer fabrics that don’t add any weight, so she can take off in whatever direction the breeze blows her.

(items pictured: summer layers skirt, fp-1 rainforest maxi dress, starlight lovers dress, fp-1 tie dye sunburst maxi, open stitch beach tunic)

the city

evening sets in and the temperature in the air cools as she steps out for a night on the town. dressed in bold colors and patterns, crimped hair and red lips, skin glowing from the day’s sun and eyes alive with excitement,  she dances down narrow streets into the magical night.

(items pictured: fp-1 tie dye sunburst maxi, rugby stripe column, sheer yoke floral skort, seneca rising live twice short, pleated florals top, buttoned up in pleats skirt, crosswords maxi tube dress, daughters of the revolution striped tunic, lady in leopard dress)

swim

swim

she takes a breath and dives deep, the cool water shocking her skin after the sun’s intense heat.  she savors every second of the feeling of freedom one gets when they hit the water.  all other sounds are drowned out, it’s just her and her thoughts as she moves languidly under the surface.

(items pictured: fp-1 wavebreak smocked tube dress, crochet bikini, summer layers skirt, lace cropped kaftan)

which of these mood boards/ lifestyles do you guys identify with most?

destiny -Mar 20, 2011, 5:24PM
Swim is my favorite... being in water is the most blissful thing for me. And I absolutely love all of the clothes! I can't wait for summer! Castaway is definitely a close second :)
Senna -Mar 13, 2011, 1:24AM
I really feel a connection to cast away... But I love swimming

Post image for A weekend makeup thought

Our model Martha Hunt styled herself in the studio on Friday. Her look – reminiscent of a 90’s Debbie Harry consisted of strong bronzed eyes and a rough and ready hairstyle.

The way she teases the camera lens when she’s in front out it is breathtaking. She totally set the mood for a Friday night.

Below is the product that was used to create her look. Stay tuned to see the look book of the style she put together.

Post image for an item we love: mochila bags

the amazing mochila bags featured in our march catalog are a true labor of love.

each bag is hand woven by tribeswomen of the sierra nevada de santa marta in northern colombia, an act of tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of preserving their culture and earning a livelihood.  they believe that the act of weaving is a symbol of creativity, intelligence and wisdom, a practice that is passed on from one generation to the next, and the patterns woven into the bags are said to have a spiritual and cosmological significance. the history of these bags and all of the care that goes into them makes them extremely special – something to be cherished for a lifetime.

a third of the profits for each bag sold go to different community-based initiatives aimed at children and at supporting female artisans from indigenous communities in south america.

bag

i love how they look styled in our march catalog – the prints on the bags look awesome mixed with some of the bolder black and white prints in the clothing.

personally, i’ve got my eye on this one… i think it’s the beach bag i’ve been looking for my whole life. the perfect colors, the perfect size…i laid out what i’d pack for a day at the beach.

items pictured: crochet bikini, borderline fringe sweater, daisy chain shorts, mandy braided sandal, sunglasses, lorimer straw hat, raggy desert scarf, pattern mochila woven bucket.

Odylyne

Post image for Odylyne

Here’s another designer that we have featured in our March book –

ODYLYNE, is derived from all things beautiful. A simple concept and blend of bohemian and vintage styles with a touch of modern, clean lines. The inspiration behind the designs are also deeply rooted in the hippie chic world…where female artist set trends while breaking the rules of tongue-in-cheek fashion. The concept stays true to its original theme of creating the whimsical drama of mystery and sexiness without all the fuss. It just feels good and makes being a goddess pretty damn effortless. 

The dress is a show stopper and can be easily dressed up or down. Here’s a little interview about the brand
