Post image for all about georgia

time to get to know our second october catalog model, georgia larsen!

What is your theme song?

At the moment it’s Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s – 40 day dream. It instantly makes me feel on top of the world.

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

I’d love to go to India as I’ve heard it’s a really life changing experience. I’d make sure I picked up some Indian jewelery too!

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

A computer (I’m addicted to the Internet), my dog Dora and a huge set of speakers so I could dance to incredibly loud music.

in philly for the free people shoot this past july.

How would you describe your personal style? What are your favorite items from free people right now?

I’ve always been pretty bohemian – I love messy hair and clothes that look a bit disheveled. I think my favourite look is to mix something pretty with something grungy. I’m totally obsessed with Free People shoes, especially the Doub studded clogs and the sling back wood platforms. I’m also in love with the Fields of Lace dress.

What is your biggest fear?

My biggest fear is boredom – I always need to be on an adventure or doing something that makes me feel inspired.

Winter, spring, summer or fall?

It’s got to be spring. In England, we don’t really get good summers but our spring is beautiful. I love how hopeful and excited people feel in spring as the winter is finally ending and the flowers begin to peek.

What color are you?

Coral. I don’t know why, but I always feel attracted to warm colours. Whenever I see something coral I have to stop and look.

What is your motto?

I know it’s so cliché, but I’ve never found a motto to be as true as “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”. The more experiences I gain, good or bad, the easier things get.

What is your favorite hobby?

I’ve got so many it’s hard to pick one. Traveling is pretty high up there, I’m fascinated by other cultures and addicted to the excitement of it.

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

Probably Devendra Banhart – he looks like he’d be a lot of fun. I love how undeniably eccentric and original he is.

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

The last album I bought was by Natty – he’s a British reggae musician. At the moment my ipod is full of the Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, Kings of Leon and a lot of hip hop.

What is your dream job?

For a while now I’ve been hoping to get into fashion buying. Anything that involves trend prediction, research and travel always gets me excited.

4815421851_c4bbd48cf9_b

What inspired you to start a blog?

Initially my friend Jemma inspired me to start a blog as I was fascinated by her blog, Frontier Magic. I had a desperate need for a creative outlet, and a blog just seemed the perfect solution for that.

What influences your style?

Sometimes I don’t know what influences my style – I just find myself being naturally drawn towards certain looks. But I think the blogging world has had a massive effect on my style as I can easily spend hours looking at blogs. I find them far more interesting than fashion magazines.

How would you define your signature look?

It’s usually a vintage dress teamed with some ankle cowboy boots and socks. I’m also pretty addicted to denim cut offs…

from her blog, dora’s fur.

What designers are you inspired by?

I’m obsessed with anything by Miu Miu. They do the most incredible accessories and print designs. I’m also a fan of Chloe, Alexander Wang, Charlotte Ronson and Christopher Kane.

What’s your most memorable experience whilst blogging?

It’s got to be doing the photoshoot for Free People!

4815918527_b0db22a1dc_b

How was your free people experience?

Incredible. The team who work for Free People are some of the loveliest, most creative people I have ever met. I feel such a connection with the brand and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

apologies for the graininess of these photos… my camera is having a bad day.

I'll be honest, I had no reaction to anything that occurred at that time except being put in the position that I was in on the strange chair that I was on. Dating in today's world can be enough of a challenge of its own...but having HPV, or Herpes in addition to dating can be especially tough.

Post image for behind the scenes – natalie’s shoot

here are some more photos from behind the scenes of natalie suarez’s day of shooting! as mentioned, she was photographed by her sister dylana at the home of our creative director.  and if the location looks familiar, that’s because we featured it in our second episode of home sweet home back in april – if you missed it, check it out here – it’s pretty amazing.

these photos were taken by thomas northcut and i think they capture the atmosphere on this day of shooting beautifully :)

Post image for wednes-diy

as promised, the lovely ladies of free people austin lamar have provided step by step instructions on how to put in these rad feather hair extensions! i’m so bummed i didn’t know how to do this all summer long!

step 1: pick anywhere from 3-5 feathers. you can buy the feathers at some hair salons, or order them from etsy.

step 2: pick a small piece of hair- we suggest either under a layer of hair on top, or a small piece of hair underneath, right by the ear.

59647_156220557742710_130662793631820_328140_3071446_n

Step 3: if you don’t have a fancy tool, you can just take a piece of fishing line and loop it! then place the hair extension bead through both ends. you can find these beads at any beauty supply store that carries hair extensions.

59647_156220561076043_130662793631820_328141_1330244_n

step 4: pull the small piece of hair that you selected through the loop.

59647_156220564409376_130662793631820_328142_7552881_n

step 5: move the bead up the fishing line and onto the piece of hair.

59647_156220567742709_130662793631820_328143_1483832_n

step 6: pull the hair through the bead completely, and make sure it stays about an inch from the scalp.

59647_156220571076042_130662793631820_328144_2558340_n

step 7: take your cluster of feathers, and make sure every feather makes it into the bead!

59647_156220574409375_130662793631820_328145_7939431_n

Step 8: once you make sure all of the feathers are in, you can trim any of the excess that is sticking out of the top of the bead.

59647_156220577742708_130662793631820_328146_2154011_n

step 9: take pliers and squeeze the bead until it is completely closed.

59647_156220584409374_130662793631820_328148_2248823_n

VOILA!!! you have beautiful feathers in your hair!!

34709_155783974453035_130662793631820_325624_4271115_n

now if you want to take it a step further, put some feathers on both sides of your head and put your hair into a french braid:

34709_155783961119703_130662793631820_325620_1481755_n

peace of cake ;)

*update*

to remove the feathers you can just pinch the bead with pliers in the other direction to open it and they slide right out. or after a week or two they might slide out on their own.

the feather can get wet, washed, brushed, blown dry and straightened! you can pretty much just treat them like your own hair.

Post image for all about natalie

get to know the first of our three october catalog models, natalie suarez!

What is your theme song?

I’m in love with all Bob Dylan songs. He explains things about life so clearly in his music. My two favorites are “Don’t think twice, it’s all right” and “Like a rolling stone.”

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

I would go to Europe! It would be a dream trip for me.

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

If I were stranded on an island, I would want to have food, shelter, and possibly a computer, though there probably wouldn’t be wifi. Maybe even a guitar just to keep me occupied!

with her sister dylana outside the free people home office.

How would you describe your personal style? What are your favorite items from free people right now?

My personal style is really a mix of everything. I don’t just stick to one particular look. I wear a lot of vintage pieces that I mix in with designer finds and basics. I like to wear things that are unique so that I stand out from a crowd. My favorite items from Free People right now would have to be the gorgeous BodyCon dresses and the fitted lace blouses. I love how you can layer anything with Free People and it looks totally cool and beautiful. I love Free People’s soft fabrics and vintage inspired prints.

Oct Catalog Shoot 7-10 047

Oct Catalog Shoot 7-10 043

What is your biggest fear?

Hmm, my biggest fear would probably be to lose someone I really love. I need my family and friends to keep me grounded.

Winter, spring, summer or fall?

That’s hard to pick. I love Spring and Fall. Both such beautiful seasons.

What color are you?

I would say my color is Green. I don’t know, I’ve always had this thing for dark olive or forest green shades.

What is your motto?

Just go with the flow. Try not to take everything so seriously. Things always happen for a reason.

What is your favorite hobby?

My favorite hobby would be singing and playing my guitar. It’s such a great way to release my energy and just let go. It gets me to really feel my emotions. And it’s really something so personal to me.

125e15b1b9c94b26_jane-birkin-011

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

I would spend the day with Jane Birkin. She seems like such a beautiful soul with so much talent. I would love to hear her story. She was an icon, but has so much mystery.

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

I recently got all the Rilo Kiley music. I’m obsessed with them. All their songs are great for driving in the car or just sitting in the subway. I also really love M.I.A, Vampire Weekend, Sun-kil Moon, Led Zeppelin, Paolo Nutini, and of course Bob Dylan. I really like all kinds of music.

If you weren’t a model what would you do?

If I weren’t a model, I would probably be focusing on music more. Also, I have always loved the whole college atmosphere. It seems like so much fun and I do enjoy learning and doing normal things like attending class. I plan on finishing college in the future. But for now, I’ve been really lucky with modeling and I love that I get to constantly meet new people and see new places.

4816386010_60a86e7f4b_b

4816392450_18b8523265_b

What inspired you to start a blog?

My sister, Dylana of the fashion blog, “Nana in Wonderland” first had a blog. She introduced me to the whole blogging community and I was fascinated. The photography and styling was so inspiring. I started blogging a bit on her blog, then decided to start my own. I’m so happy I did start blogging. It has brought me so many amazing opportunities.

What influences your style?

So many things influence my style. Editorials, street style photos, and music influence my style. Some days I’ll feel like dressing down if I’m having a mellow day and others I’ll throw on some heels and some really amazing vintage. The blogs influence my style as well. People are constantly updating with the latest images and you can’t help but take note of what looks amazing in the photographs and embracing that into your own personal style.

4816375320_29901c7766_b

What designers are you inspired by?

I’m inspired by Alexander Wang, Dries Van Noten, and Miu Miu. Those are just a few of my favorites.

What’s your most memorable experience whilst blogging?

My most memorable experience while blogging was getting contacted by Free People to appear in the October catalog. It was such a dream come true. I couldn’t believe it when I got the message. I feel so lucky and am so happy! I’ve been collecting Free People catalogs for years. I find them so inspiring. The styling and photography are so beautiful every single time. I’m a huge fan.

4815843781_6f39c3a1e3_b

4815847653_6fef6e22f1_b

How was your free people experience?

It was truly amazing. Everyone at Free People was so inviting and just so much fun to work with. We had a lot of laughs! The Free People clothes are also so so beautiful. I loved every piece I put on and they all work so well together, mixed and matched. It was amazing to be shot by my sister, Dylana, as well. I feel we really captured my personal style and the Free People vibe. We all worked together really well and nailed the shoot! I loved working with everyone at the team in Philadelphia and I hope to work with Free People again in the future. The whole experience was just something I will never forget.

I’m sorry for the constant update lately on Abbey Lee wearing Free People but I cant help but gloat.

How often to you get a profound Fashion model wearing a brand non stop at the worlds biggest fashion event ‘Fashion week’?!

Here she’s a eclectic beauty, mixing our leaves of memory skirt with a jersey top and velvet jacket… kinda like the one that’s coming to us for Holiday :)
