time for the last part of our holiday gift guide… it’s cold here in philly but we can’t forget about the sandys out there in warm climates, or who are just beach girls at heart. i’m one of them :)
sandy spends her holiday at – where else? – the beach! she loves going in winter because its quiet and peaceful. she can take a walk on the beach at sunrise and be completely alone with her thoughts, only the sound of crashing waves interrupting her. she lights candles, drinks tea and catches up on her reading, and at night she grabs a blanket and heads to the beach for a bonfire with friends.
one of the coolest things about my job as free people blogger is that i get to interact with so many of our customers and fans. whether it’s through the emails i get every day from blog readers, the comments people leave on blog posts, or photos and artwork people upload to facebook, i am constantly inspired by our fans.
but i want to get to know you even better, and share your stories on the blog so everyone can see them. tell me your story about free people – how you first discovered us, why you love free people, where you like to wear your free people, artwork and photography inspired by free people – you name it, i want to see it and hear it.
you can send your stories, photos, drawings, paintings, DIY projects, and more to firstname.lastname@example.org
i want to compile as many as possible for a little project we’d like to do as an ongoing tribute to you, our readers and fans.

ginger’s favorite part of the holiday season are the parties! whether they’re family parties with her loved ones, work parties or wild parties in the city she loves getting dressed up in her holiday finest and dancing till her feet hurt. christmas is an excuse for her to wear gold and silver sparkles, bright reds and pops of pink to her heart’s content!
A couple of months ago when our team was picking out items and thinking about outfits for our December catalog, some of our home office girls put on the outfits and modeled them – and fortunately our videographer was there to capture the fun on film :) this video is too cute and funny!
we just got in this little velvet romper the other day and it’s the cutest! jemma and i decided to each style an outfit using it – hers is a dressier, going out look that i could totally see her rocking on new years eve – or any night for that matter! my look is a more casual way of wearing it… this was actually a challenge for me, as this isn’t the sort of thing i would normally wear, but once i put on the denim shirt and socks i could definitely imagine wearing this when i’m just hanging around the house. it’s so comfortable and sexy at the same time!
i’m crazy about our collection of old west-inspired accessories. the colors are so beautiful… i don’t know what it is about turquoise and coral but it always draws me in. i love the idea of layering a whole bunch of these necklaces and bracelets. which is your favorite?
meadow loves to spend the holidays outdoors. every year she and her friends take off for a cabin in the woods where they spend nights huddled round bonfires drinking hot chocolate, telling stories and playing songs on guitars and wooden flutes. they wake up early to watch the sun rise before exchanging gifts on christmas morning.
Turquoise and western jewelry always catches my eye, I think it adds a certain special touch to your outfit, and I love to wear it with denim. I was very excited to hear that Ana Saldana from Rejoice the Hands was going to be featured in our December catalog a couple of months back and her pieces look great in the book; they complete the western adventurer we were trying to capture.
Her jewelry is handmade in Orange County California inspired by nature and the diversity of cultures around the world. We love her natural aesthetic and materials like turquoise, brass, silver and found porcupine quills.
We’re very excited to hold her pieces. They are the essence of true America!!!
You should check out Ana Saldana tumblr (link below) after seeing a picture of Devendra Banhart I was hooked :)
