Post image for our stylists’ picks for fall

our stylists have amazing taste (obviously!) so today i asked them to give their top picks for this fall – and they even modeled them for me! first up, our senior stylist:

“i feel really good about wide leg pants and looser styles going into fall. i’d describe it as victorian mixed with 70s on safari! the coat has a victorian silhouette that looks amazing on any body type because it creates a waist. you can wear it so many different ways, too- belted, open like a cardigan, over a maxi, or with wide leg pants.  and the colors go with everything! i also love the expedition hat and large bags like this that fit everything you would need in case you do actually go on a safari :)”

items pictured above: 1. wide leg easy pant; 2. leather hip belt; 3. ruffled tweed jacket; 4. leather expedition hat; 5. bag coming soon.

and now our assistant stylist:

“i love the long sleeve lace buttondown tunic- it is so versatile! it’s a great piece for layering so you can keep wearing summery items like a printed mini into fall, and the print shows through the lace which is really cute.  just add a cozy cardigan, over-the-knee boots with socks, and a beanie! this leather jacket is AMAZING. it is lined in satin and has a detachable hoodie and has that perfect beaten up quality to it.”

items pictured above: 1. long sleeve lace buttondown tunic; 2. cable beanie; 3. whiplash mini; 4. aralia tall heeled boot; 5. doma hooded biker jacket; 6. far away cable cardigan.

Office Style

Post image for Office Style

My sister has moved  from England to join me here at Free People and I thought I would do a little office style on her. It’s great when you have a sister who is the same size as you and has a similar style to you too. We can borrow and swap clothes until our hearts are content.

It’s great having her here and its lovely having someone who shares the same visual eye as mine.

caroline -Aug 24, 2010, 4:59PM

Post image for purple

when i was in the photo studio last week for our latest how-to style session, i kept finding myself admiring our associate stylist’s hair! she died her ends purple and i think it looks awesome – as a fellow brunette who loves the whole colored hair trend, i’ve often wondered what colors would look good with brown hair and i think purple definitely does! it’s subtle but still catches the eye.

Lucy -Nov 08, 2011, 6:42PM
I love your blog!! its so cute and simple! the pics and the videos are really pretty and simple!! i really really love this photo! i have brown hair and i want to die my hair purple, but im not quite sure how i want to do it! Now I do!! Thanks so muchh!!!
Julia -Sep 18, 2010, 1:38PM
What kind of color did she use to dye her hair, because i tried it with blue and it wouldn't wanted to stay!?

i have a really wierd obsession with woodstock.  i wasn’t even alive back then but it pains me to think i wasn’t able to be a part of that experience.  our vintage buyer took a trip to bethel, new york,  and brought back some photos of the festival site and her friend’s place – i nearly died when i saw them. one day i will get there.

The hippy times were so grovy and the pot so good and the people so cool but all good things have to make way for the bad. Evil invaded all that love and poof it was gone. Yeah I was a part of that happening and now I'm 66 years old and looking back it was the best part of my life.

Post image for Look of the moment

Isabel Lucas rocked out in LA in this adorable little number, there’s something very Annie Hall going on here. I love that she’s added quirky little stripey socks into the mix and that her hair and make up is undone.Cute as a button. I think I might be wearing this look going into Fall.

i LOVE this! its so... dreamy! everything is imperfect in a totally perfect way. <3 the dress must be vintage?

i’m not sure what’s better, their performance of “airplanes” or the guy who chases down a robber to get a girl’s purse back.

Post image for almost famous

one of our newest items is this fuzzy faux fur jacket that we’ve dubbed the almost famous fur jacket. inevitably, images and snippets of the movie of that name come to mind.  there was a period of time when i was in college when i would watch this movie with my roommate to the point where we had it memorized and wanted to get a pet turtle and name it russell. i always felt like i was really meant to be a band-aid, traveling the states in a tour bus with a grungy long-haired band… living for music, love and nothing else.

here are some images, some from the movie and some from elsewhere, that make this feeling come rushing back.
