Post image for born to roam

i’m sure some of you may have been curious as to what ROAM hawaii is when brooke mentioned it in her post- i was too and checked out the website, and i got completely lost going through their photos. ROAM is a “mobile marketplace” from which brooke and a few of her friends sell handmade and one of a kind pieces from its traveling van (their “tiger mobile”!) that roams around the island. how cool is that?! do you ladies have room for one more? ;)

Post image for summer layering with ponchos

ponchos are typically thought of as a fall/winter thing, at least in my mind, but with our may catalog we decided to breathe some new life into the poncho as a light and easy summer layer – and the perfect beach cover-up. the idea of ponchos on the beach was first introduced to the fashion world back in the 70s – check out these images i found on tumblr!

these definitely play on the idea of using the poncho as a cover up and when you take it off, using it as a beach blanket – the boxy shape of ponchos makes them perfect for this. but that’s just one reason why they’re so great- in addition to being functional, they can also be really cute and sexy. here are some images I love of stylish gals rocking ponchos the summer way!

even heavier ponchos can work on a cooler spring/summer day- love how they look with shorts or a skirt and bare legs!

personally i can’t get over how this poncho is styled on our website with the nightcap lace bellbottoms. i would definitely wear this for a laid-back night out in summer after spending the day lounging on the beach!

items pictured: kona pointelle poncho, nightcap lace bell bottom – color coming soon!, on the fringe poncho, miranda sun hat, loa woven bracelets, fresno aviators, vacancy bustier bikini, arrow straw beach tote, terry cloth lined towel.

LOVE! P.S. The Rum Diary is one of my all time favorite books! I can't wait until it's released as a movie, I've heard Johnny Depp is playing the lead <3

Post image for Macrame anyone?

Macramé has landed on our fp page bringing a little bit of unique texture to our summer feet. Many people get confused with Macramé and crochet so here’s a little about its background. Macramé is an art of decorative knotting without using needles or hooks. By using a series of knots, it can be created using any kind of material. You can use fine thread or even use leather strips. The outcome – a truly unique texture that creates interest.

We love the 1970’s influence and the workmanship aesthetic it portrays deriving from the early sailors of the seven seas.  Sailors made macramé objects in off hours while at sea, and sold or bartered them when they landed, thus spreading the art to places like China and the New World. Nineteenth-century British and American sailors made hammocks, bell fringes, and belts from macramé. They called the process “square knotting”, after the knot they used most frequently.

However, the trend has made its way back and made an impact on the runaways for spring/summer 2011, but how do you wear such an intricate look?

Let the texture tell the story of your outfit; team with a simple sundress and brown satchel, maybe a no print outfit would work best avoiding over busy-ness or run wild with the 70’s look and team some cute little Macramé shoes with bell bottoms and a simple tee.

We’re loving the shoes that are featured here they’re the ideal summer shoe!

That brown macrame dress is really cool, but it looks kind of heavy at the top? Macrame is definitely hot for this summer!

We have the uber cool Ruby Aldridge in our studio today. She screams rock chic and she’s adding a cutting edge to our looks. She’s having a blast dancing around to the NY Dolls, she’s full of energy I can’t wait to see her styled up on our web.

I got to take this picture of Ruby! Thanks so much Jemma :) Fun fact: She made the necklaces she's wearing! She found the charms at flea markets and fashioned them together herself, Très chic!

Post image for A photo diary from Australia Fashion Week

We reached out to Mandy, our blogger friend at Oracle Fox, to guest blog for Free People from Australia Fashion Week. I was super excited that she was willing to do this for us, as it’s one of my favorite fashion weeks around, and we knew she would do a stellar job documenting it!

She documented the scene of great fashion and the beautiful relaxed lifestyle Australia has to offer. Here’s round 1 of her favorite shows. If you could go to any fashion week which one would you choose? Mine would definitely be Australia.

“The styling at the Miss Unkon show was spectacular!! I loved the beautiful earth tone colour palette and the way the show was accessorized with long delicate necklaces, tribal braiding and incredible body art!”

FreePeopleRAFW-Unkon4

“I love this shot of Ivan Rodic taking Nicole from Gary Pepper Vintage’s picture, I think this piccies sums up the whole Australian fashion week vibe…amazing street photographer-check, amazing fashion blogger-check, amazing style-check, opera house-check”

FreePeopleRAFW-street6

Post image for seamless style

here at the home office we’re crazy about our seamless intimates.  they’re very “ginger” pieces on their own but are essential layering pieces for all the fp girls.  today some of our buyers all came in wearing their favorite seamless piece styled in some very different but equally awesome ways  – check it out…

a seamless bodysuit is perfect for layering under something semi-sheer like the finale in fringe slip!

she’s wearing the seamless tupelo honey top over the seamless scoop tank – a great combo with a printed skirt!

the seamless bodysuits are perfect to wear under a skirt too.

Post image for guest blog post: the gold coast

australia’s gold coast is located in south east queensland, on the country’s eastern shore. with 35 miles of coastline that includes some of the most popular surf breaks in australia and the world, the area has been a huge draw for both tourists and surfers all over the world. it was also inspiration for a special shop launching today on our website that is our nod to surfer girls everywhere – denim shorts in bright colors, easy knits, bathing suits, summery shoes and pops of neon, its a collection that screams summer fun and adventure.

for her second guest post for us, mandy of the amazing blog oracle fox went down to the gold coast and took some beautiful photos to capture the atmosphere there. i am thinking a trip to australia is definitely in order!
