If you’re anything like us, you love nothing better than a good old nosey through somebody else’s wardrobe. We always end up feeling inspired! Here’s a little tour though my wardrobe. We hope to post more of these from some of our favorite Free People muses.
My style inspiration is a Rock ‘N’ Roll chic verses a hippie folklore rebel. Tattered sweaters mixed with ditsy florals, holey rock Tees and denim shirts.
My dad is a huge Eagles fan so owning this very rare Eagles in concert shirt is extra special to me. Pattern and texture consume the majority of my wardrobe. I have a huge love for crochet – my favorite item is the crochet swing top that I bought from Free People last summer. I own bags that look like they have been traveled and been on an adventure throughout life, old satchels and run down rucksacks. I collect Native American jewelry, Turquoise and necklaces that have been made in Indian pow wows.
My style developed from looking at Vogue from the tender age of 13, and my dad’s collection of American rock vinyls and books – I used to admire Joni Mitchell, The Stones and get a kick out of seeing bad ass rebel films such as The Wild One with Marlon Brando; I like how denim and leather give you an attitude. Fashion excites me every day and I love owning pieces that are extra special and have meaning behind them.
we have another new lookbook up online! “la boheme” is a gorgeous mix of airy fabrics, soft colors, crochet, animal and floral prints. it’s romantic and sweet and i could easily see these outfits floating down the streets of paris. which one is your favorite?

after jemma posted about our extreme series oversized and boxy tees the other day i went and checked out the shop online and started thinking about how i’d wear some of these items. like she said, i also tend to over-size it when i buy shirts because i like them a little baggier – so these extreme tees are right up my alley! we had a little fun today trying some outfits on, and with the color scheme of the items we picked, the bamboo forest at the end of the hall beckoned to us…
you guys have probably heard of erica domesek of the blog p.s. – i made this… by now – she’s a DIY genius. i love how she can make a project i’d never even think of seem so easy and do-able. for example, this feather headpiece – with spring and festival season creeping up on us it definitely has the wheels in my head turning, thinking of fun headpieces i can make and wear all summer long.
our creative design assistant snapped a couple pics of model sasha pivovarova when she arrived for our catalog shoot on thursday… she looks effortlessly cool in leather pants, black shoes, tank and messy braid – and the tiger on her shirt was definitely appropriate!
i snapped this photo of her bracelets and rings on the makeup table – i love that she just wears a couple of friendship bracelets!
and jemma took this photo when she arrived on day two, looking nice and cozy for the cold day in nyc!
i know you guys want to see more of the april catalog but you’re going to have to wait a little bit! don’t worry though because i’ll have a sneak peek of our february book soon (maybe next week!) and it is amazing :)
I have always been a fan of the oversized look. I usually opt for the two sizes bigger idea when it comes to buying tops - I like the way they fall and how much freedom I have to play around with different silhouettes.
Lately bloggers have been catching my eye and the ways they have been styling these extreme XL ideas.
I love this look with maxi skirts with a small section of the top tucked in to give a draping effect or just worn loose to give that relaxed and comfortable feel.
It’s quite a bold idea… how do you guys feel about this look???
