Post image for holiday boutiques featuring blogger picks!

have you guys checked out our holiday boutiques online yet? it looks so beautiful- i am in love with the lookbooks, which i’ll post about later on – but also we (jemma and i) got to do something fun and pick our favorite items from the november catalog, which are featured in the blogger picks section of the holiday boutiques! here are the collections i made featuring our picks, which you can also view in the holiday boutiques right here.

my picks:

“my favorite thing about the holiday season is the smell of fresh pine…it reminds me of going to the christmas tree farm to cut down our tree each year when i was little.”

jemma’s picks:

jemma collection

“holiday season brings warm feelings for me – a time that’s reminiscent of great family love. i get really nostalgic when i start to smell the season’s scents; cinnamon, mulled wine, figs and the crispness of the air. i also like that i can get away with wearing a little bit of sparkle almost every day during this season too!”

stay tuned because we’ll be adding picks from some of our favorite bloggers soon!

Post image for holiday catalog drops today!

this is our biggest book to date, and there’s so much t want to tell you about it,  from the photographers to the models to the locations.  starting with chapter one…

“the center of attention, she glistens in the night.  she is a cinderella star in a beautiful dress. She’s the special one, the one with magic all around her.”

to achieve an atmosphere of holiday magic and fantasy, our team went to northumberland england and shot part of this section at eglingham hall – a location known for being the backdrop to many of tim walker’s magical shoots.

the location was perfect to capture the essence of a girl who awakes to find herself in a fairytale, the lines between reality and dreams are blurred. she dons a beautiful dress and dances off into the night like cinderella.

the photographer for the shoot at eglingham hall was benjamin huseby, who’s dreamy photography captured the spirit of the belle of the ball beautifully, as brought to life by models julia hafstrom and jessica mau.

the third model in this section, who also graces the cover, is the lovely zippora seven. she was shot wearing some of our gorgeous holiday dresses here at the home office in philly by our photographer anthony nocella. she’s done so many great shoots, but these two photos have always been among my favorites:

Post image for introducing wee people!

i am so excited to introduce wee people… a line for our tiniest muses!

the collection captures the spirit of the free people girl in her earliest stages, when fairy tales are real and imagination knows no boundaries.  whimsical party dresses to release her inner princess, cozy sweaters and items with free people’s unique details and elements to make her feel as special as she is.

the line is the baby of our managing director of design and image, who drew her inspiration from her daughter and the desire to create a wardrobe for her that had the same uniqueness as free people. the focus of the first collection, which falls during holiday season, are girly party dresses countered with cozy, comfy items made to be played in all winter long.

the size range for wee people is 2t – 6t. the collection will debut online and in our november catalog on november 2nd.

here are some outtakes from our wee people photo shoot, featuring some of the cutest little models you’ll ever see!

The kitten Trend

Post image for The kitten Trend

Soft and Silky

There’s a new rule in town for delicate slips: Wear your sheerest of fabrics with soft and cozy knits

Sounds a little intimidating but looks very sweet. Layer lace over thermals and wear under your favorite sweaters.

A sensual and soft look we can’t get enough of.

Why we love it…

What’s not to love? I love being  cozy, and I love soft fabrics on my skin.

How we’ll be wearing it?

Lacey slips and long maxi sheer skirts with biker boots and chunky socks, super soft knitwear, and thermals.

I’m completely seduced by this trend!

This is exactly what I will be pulling off all winter, its lovely.

she is very thin... women with a bit more of realistic curves? i am a big fan and she is lovely, it fits her bone frame, but i would love to see curvy women on the pages of free people <3
