Post image for rumi at free people

you guys might remember a while back, we had a couple of our summer interns set up a makeshift “store” in our office, filled with items that were actually going to be used in our october catalog.  well the purpose was to create a really nice environment for when rumi neely came into our office, so she could experiment with all of the items and choose her outfits for the shoot!  i went up and hung out with her for a little bit and snapped some photos. both rumi and her boyfriend colin are incredibly sweet and down to earth people and work so well together, they’re fun to watch :)

Post image for sneak peek – home sweet home

for rumi neely’s shoot in the october catalog, our team went to the home of our senior designer behind our fp one line and store design.  located in mt. airy, philadelphia, her house is everything you would imagine for someone with her creative spirit.  from the outside it looks like villa you’d see in the south of france, and on the inside it is full of treasures she has collected during her travels (she spends six months of each year in india).

a video is coming soon, but here is a special preview of her beautiful home.

Post image for all about rumi

If you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?

Stockholm – They have amazing street style! I love checking out Swedish blogs.

If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?

My cat, kumo, my ipod, and sunscreen.

photos from her blog, fashiontoast.

How would you describe your personal style? What are your favorite items from Free People right now?

I like really casual pieces with slightly off silhouettes and details that set them apart. I love platform heels.  It’s slightly grungy or hippie, whatever mood I am in that day. My favorite item from the free people shoot were the gee wawa fatale platform boots!

P7121386-1

What is your biggest fear?

Being buried alive!

Winter, spring, summer or fall?

Blue…not to sound depressing.

What is your favorite hobby?

Going to thrift stores! I love the randomness of thrift stores and seeing what your instinct guides you towards.

If you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?

Andy Warhol.

What’s the last album you bought? What else is on your ipod right now?

The last album I bought was Monsters of Folk…some other bands on my ipod are Band of Horses, Julian Casablancas and Sigur Ros.

If you weren’t a fashion blogger what would you do?

Focus more on my vintage store. I’d love to be a vintage buyer or photographer.

When you started your blog did you ever think it would become the sensation it is today?

Never! I’ve thought about changing the name but I don’t think I can now.

Post image for It’s getting cold outside

But I still want to be sensual! When it gets cold out I usually live in the same outfit every single day… it consist of Skinny jeans, hoody, pea coat and warm boots.

 This time around however I want to get a little creative with our lingerie, though – adding a little bit of cuteness to the everyday denims and sweaters. Here’re some looks that our stylist in the studio hellped us create in our studio the other day, we were in awe of all the delicate items so we decided to make them come to life by creating little outfit ideas!

 Silky slips and velvet bralettes add a touchy/feely vibe to your winter wardrobe.

 Not all items are online yet but will be pretty soon, I can’t wait!

Post image for fp loves…herno puffer jackets


image by jess gough

i wanted to tell you guys a little bit more about these awesome herno puffer jackets we have right now!

herno was founded in italy in 1948 and originally specialized in men’s raincoats. over the years the company evolved to offer a women’s collection and in the last decade has conducted advanced research on performance – in their new range they are introducing high tech fabrics like polyamide to create high quality jackets that are a fusion of tradition and modernity. these are the ultimate winter jackets – not only will tthey keep  you dry and warm, they will last you for years and years.

we have two styles of herno jackets- the reversible down hoodie and the down blazer.  i especially love the reversible one because you can change it up with different looks! i hate winter but these jackets are almost making me look forward to snowy days and weekend ski trips… hanging at the lodge by a fire with a cup of hot chocolate.

i love how the jackets look paired with a body con skirt, over the knee socks and tall boots, or with skinny jeans and a flannel! here are some fp items i’d style them with:

style

items pictured: long sleeve reversible down hoodie; long sleeve down blazer; we the free plaid button down; rich & skinny moto crop; webs we weave topsonia bracelet; fairisle reversible beanie; textured body con skirt; plaid and flower tall sock; rogan tall hiker.

bon voyage…
