Post image for rose bowl treasures

prior to opening our new store in costa mesa, ca, a couple of our display team members who work out on the west coast made a trip to the rose bowl flea market to pick up some props for the store.  one of them shared her photos from the shopping excursion and i found myself practically drooling over the blankets, accessories and various little trinkets she found.  philly needs a (monthly!!) flea market like this! i would be in heaven.

read more to see lots more photos!

just across the mountains from telluride, dunton hot springs resort is a romantic ghost town set in an extraordinary alpine valley. it is described as a town that thrives on contradictions. the rugged, hand constructed exterior shields comfortable, exquisitely furnished rooms, and a saloon worn down over time by visitors serves fresh, mouth watering food.  guests can take long, grueling hikes followed by soothing massages and look out at snowcapped mountains while resting weary bones in steaming natural hot springs.

sounds like heaven to me.

all photos taken by our producer.

hello the july catalog was really neat i like the indian feel, i could not help to notice on the first picture i liked it so much - the ghost & black background & haunted feel, however what a curious ''conical'' shaped hat that ghost wears, (very funny no one else noticed ) it reminds me of something...

I want to be in Colorado...right....now.

Post image for july catalog inspiration

our july catalog is now out! today i wanted to share some of the images and words that fp jemma put together about the inspiration behind this beautiful book…

the feeling:

wind swept, romantic with a ghostly bohemian spirit. horse riding and voodoo dancing in a wood smoked air.

the personality:

sweet and sultry with a native indian stroke. tasseled windy hair caught with braids of wisdom. they evoke the spirit of the wind, and wondrous journeys.

julycatalog1sized

the styling  – a mixture of military and american cool. fur, feathers, military tags, horns, work boots, leather bags.

the photographer: benjamin alexander huseby. ghostly and sun drenched. a feeling of nostalgia.

~

this catalog will have the impact of a stampede, hitting you right off your feet and into a world of “quilted dreams”

view the catalog; shop the items.

kristina -Jul 06, 2010, 3:12PM
i love you so much free people. for real. you're beautiful.<3

i have been dying to learn how to do this ever since i first saw it on some of the models on our website! watch as our makeup artist (and fishtail braid expert!) deanna demonstrates how to do a fishtail braid like the ones on our website and in the pages of our july catalog. featuring our lovely shoe buyer :)

song is “dream baby dream” by black tambourine.

Shannon -Jan 18, 2013, 6:31PM
I love the look, but the video didn't help me understand it . I think it would help if, instead of music, the stylist was speaking and explaining how to do it step by step. I have to say watching it being quickly braided with loud music didn't help at all.
Rosalie -Aug 07, 2010, 4:55PM
yay im so excited i finally figuured out how to do it! if only i didnt have so many layers ! :)

Post image for talking with our interns!

left: carolina, right: nicole

say hello to two of our sweet and adorable interns, carolina and nicole! they are going into their senior year of high school and have spent the last two weeks interning here at free people. these best friends had a unique and exciting internship that allowed them to experience several departments here at the home office.  i spent a little time with them today to talk about their experience!

what was your favorite part of your internship here?

both: being in the photo studio! watching the stylists at work and seeing the models was really exciting.

nicole: i actually loved hanging up all the clothes when they were finished shooting with them! i loved getting to see all the beautiful clothing up close.

carolina: it’s been amazing, we’ll never get an experience like this again!

both: spending time with the designers was really cool too because we got to see just how much they do! they showed us items online that they had designed and you never really think about that, it’s crazy.  we’re not the most talented with our hands and we tried to sew a sweater – it was a disaster.

talking about high school and proms with our senior stylist!

what is your dream job?

carolina: after this experience, i think i would love to be a designer or a buyer.

nicole: i would definitely want to be a stylist or buyer if i worked for a clothing company, but my dream has always been to be a doctor!

their collage of free people girls.

which free people girl are you?

nicole: i’m definitely lou during the day and ginger at night!

carolina: i think a little bit of all of them, except for lou.

nicole: you’re a mix of candy and ginger for sure :)

what is your favorite free people item?

nicole: i am completely obsessed with the coachella boots (pictured below on candy).  they’re all i can think about. my dad finally agreed to get them for me as an early birthday present and i am SO excited!

carolina: i love the green motorcuff thermal (pictured below on lou)! but i want every color, i’d wear them all the time.

Picture 4
with one of our models  :)

now check out the outfits they styled for each free people girl! they did an amazing job – i would wear every single one of these outfits.

Hey, I LOVE THE FIRST PICTURE of the girl with the pink hair. Is there any way in the next "Office Style" that you could put up a picture of her hair down? I was thinking of doing the same thing to my hair and I just want to see what it looks like. Thanks!
fp julia -Jul 06, 2010, 11:01AM
