Post image for Office Style

Tons of good fashion inspiration around the office today! From killer gladiator-style shorts to kooky sweaters and pretty prairie dresses I was deeply impressed. What’s your favorite look from the Free People team was wearing today?

Post image for Trendspotting: Colored Suede Shoes

I’ve always been a little scared to be adventurous with shoes; I’m a plain Jane kind of girl when it comes to that department, usually sticking to black or brown, flats or boots.
however this Fall the trend on everyone’s minds is jeweled colored suede shoes in rich tones — emerald green, smokey grey, rust, and cherry red.

It’s a trend that ran wild off the runway with the likes of marni, prada and miu miu all casting a rainbow of delight below the ankle. we love the idea of mixing them with prints or even brightening up you basic day look.

Would you wear a pair of colored heels or wedges?

I love heels, but I'm so tall (5'8), and I always feel awkward in heels! ;) The second picture from the bottom is so pretty! Love the towering heels with the tights and long skirt! xoxo

I do not know whether it's just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your site. It looks like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen previously. Kudos

Post image for Vintage Mendocino Wedding

I swear, I was just thinking the other day about how it had been a while since I posted about a wedding and lo and behold, one of our lovely readers named Sascha sent me an email.

“I just recently got married to my special sweetheart. I have been so inspired by Free People whether its your blog, stores, catalogs, and of course the clothes that I have been rockin’ for the past twelve years. My inspiration definitely shined through while preparing for one of the biggest days of my life.  I just wanted to share my special day with you and say thank you for empowering us ladies and our creative minds.”

She included a link to her wedding photos and they completely melted my heart. The enchanted-forest-like setting, vintage decor and casual touches, plus the love that simply radiates from the photos.  I had to share with you guys!

Sascha’s now sister-in-law and close friend found her dress at a vintage store, La Rosa, in Haight Ashbury in San Francisco – how cool is that?

Post image for Style File: Visual Merchandiser

Meet this week’s style file girl – the visual merchandising assistant at the Free People home offices. She is one of the sweetest most humble people, and when you visit her desk you’re sure to get licked up and down by her friendly (canine) partner in crime, Dill. I was drawn to her style because of the perfect blend of classic elements and rocker edge that she seems to have mastered. You can almost bet she’ll have on at least one piece that you want to rip off of her for yourself – namely, the abundance of statement necklaces, hair pieces, and perfect tees that she has collected over the years. Another thing I love about her style is the hair. She has mastered the art of hair pinning for awesome intricate up-dos, and has tons of neat head bands, scarves, turbans, and hats that she works in. Maybe it’s her easy personality that makes it all look so effortless, but she sure knows how to top off a look achieving great results.

Her styling skills don’t just keep her looking like perfection each day, but they also keep our stores looking like perfection. In her job as a visual merchandiser, she styles mannequins with outfit ideas and comes up with merchandising concepts and color stories for our stores. Another cool part of her job involves selecting all of the music to be played in Free People stores. Every other Friday she and the visual team go through their new selections and choose their favorites. After all the ideas have been developed she maintains communication with store contacts, so they are well aware of the big ideas and everything going on.

Post image for Office Style: Perfect Prints

Wearing prints can take a certain amount of confidence and skill. Knowing what to pair them with and how to place them on your body takes a good eye. I love getting inspiration from the other ladies around the office who have gotten the trick down. So whether it’s floral, plaid, paisley, or cheetah and whether it’s all over or a strategic print pop, these ladies can show you how it’s done.

Post image for Thursday Poll: High Waisted Edition

One of our favorite trends here at Free People are high waisted pants. They’re great for mixing up those proportions, and can be worn with a variety of looks. Maybe you’re going for super polished, or perhaps you’d rather look like you stepped right out of Woodstock ’69. However you wear them, high waisted pants are extremely comfortable and flattering. We love them so much that we’ve have them in all different materials now at Free People. So which will you be wearing?
