Lately I’ve been obsessing over Indiana Jones style hats. I recently saw Risko from src783

Looking might fine in one and it just made me WANT one even more. I’m thinking here a perfect shindig outfit or

 a look I would wear late afternoon drinking in a local dive bar. The hat, an oversized denim wrangler shirt with bike shorts underneath of course and

these lovely little clogs.

 All I need now is for Friday to hurry up and get here!!!!!!

Post image for What our Fp girls are into!

Untitled-3

I get a little curious sometimes. I like to get inside the minds of other people here @ the office and find out what’s making them tick  and then maybe it will make me tick too.

I asked one of our Senior Buyers for Web what’s inspiring her at the moment. she’s one of those girls who always look stylish and on trend but adds little bits of quirkiness to her everyday look I sneek a glimpse at her almost everday and I’m never disapointed.

So here’s her lowdown on her style file;

“Hey! I’m loving heavy metal rings, knuckle rings and body armor jewelry and I’m loving big vintage kimonos worn as coats or jackets.

I’m loving the whole Chloe range too :) the little sensible satchels are gorge.

That 70’s mum vibe is rocking me. xxx”

OMG I forgot I am OBSESSED with Isabel Marants Fall collection .

Post image for meet the concept intern!

i am thrilled to introduce you to our new concept intern! i know a lot of you were very interested in this position and curious to see who we hired, so read on to get to know her a little bit and to see more of the beautiful concept boards that she put together. the one below was the overall inspiration board that she submitted with her application for the internship – she did an amazing job!

“When I flipped through magazines in search of tears to use in my inspiration board, I tried to keep an eye out for photos that exuded the Free People energy that has pulled so many hearts toward the brand. I sprinkled elephants, birds, and gems like vintage inspired lockets and beaded silk bracelets here and there to represent the freedom, love of life, and pull towards the one-of-a-kind that is so prevalent in the Free People aesthetic.”


Where are you going to school and what will you study?

I have just graduated high school and will attend the University of Pennsylvania in the fall. I hope to double major in English and Visual Studies.

What is your dream job?

I am floating in it! Ever since I first discovered Free People I have dreamed of becoming a FP girl! Even before I encountered the brand I knew that what I wanted most from a workplace was to be surrounded by an endless outpour of creative energy, and Free People epitomizes this ideal. From the moment I stepped into Building 15 I knew I had found it.

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

I love to wear pieces that are comfortable but make their presence known to me when I’m wearing them—clothes that, when put on, summon images to me and make me feel like I am in some distant land only realized in my dreams. My favorite Free People items now are the Paisly Garden Printed Tank, Vlatava Convertible Skirt, Military Ruffle Jacket, and the New Crinkle Floral Dress.

What color are you?

I’d like to think lime green because that is my favorite color… but I really alternate between mellow yellow and a deep, gray-tinged violet.

What is your motto?

In terms of survival: live and let live :)

In terms of personal philosophy: butterflies are free, and so are we.

What is your favorite hobby?

Running used to put me in my place of Zen, but ever since my shins decided to get injured, I have turned to tennis to fill that role. I also cannot think of a more uplifting activity than playing with my mischief maker, Rambo (who also happens to live up to his name).

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

I would love to spend a day with Roger Waters or David Gilmour of Pink Floyd to learn what went through their head when they wrote such brilliant lyrics and produced such beautiful melodies. I would also have loved to spend a day with the creative genius that was Alexander McQueen.

dreamscapes flattened copy

With this concept I strived to capture the fleeting moment of bliss that, when experienced, seems to last a lifetime. I chose colors and blended photos in order to achieve a mood of serenity, and featured girls adorned in ruffles and lace to characterize the optimistic, girly Free People girl that wears her heart on her sleeve and soaks up life. I chose to accessorize the board with rings and brooches that bring to mind images of translucent waters and cloud-crinkled skies.

Cool chic flattened (2)

this concept board is set in the heart of September—that time when a trace still remains of the warmth of summer but the chill of oncoming October begins to settle over the land. The inspiration centers around a girl who is relaxed, cool, and calm and wears clothes that reflect those same qualities. It is Sunday morning and she runs to the market to pick up fresh vegetables and basks in the tranquility of the a.m.. To balance the tomboy elements in her look, she highlights her femininity (and her rocker edge) through subtle sparkle by implementing marcasite rings and brooches and clothing with stud embellishments into her wardrobe.

fleur flattened

This mood board encompasses everything that is girly and sweet about the Free People Girl. Flowers strike her fancy…so what does the Free People girl do? She wears them, of course. In this collage, the flower child can be found blossoming underwater or else reading within terrestrial jurisdiction, as well as pedaling through the town, leaving a trail of silk behind her.

Post image for thursday poll – edition 98

now that we’ve told you all about the stripes trend we’re loving right now, i want to know which striped item is your favorite!

do you like bold and bright, like the WTF lace and stripe short sleeve top:

barely there stripes like the crinkle tunic:

textured stripes like the downtown date dress:
17959446_040_a

partial stripes like the super tank mini dress:
17674680_004_a

bold, all-over stripes like the dinner time tieback dress:
18640854_040_a

or multicolored stripes like the super stripe tank:
18171975_062_a

the winner of last week’s dress poll was, by far and away, the downtown date dress with 60% of the vote!

Pharmacy technician book -Jun 22, 2010, 11:50AM
Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

A new take on MOD

Post image for A new take on MOD

mod2

Whenever I hear the word ‘stripes’ used in the fashion the thought of Mods and Rockers of the late 1950’s early 60’s spring to mind.

Twiggy, The Who, Edie Sedgwick, Andy Warhol and his Factory are all icons that I associate with this trend.

Stripes are back again but not so 60’s this time around; think subtle, playful, girly stripes that give a pinch of boy, we’re moving away from the bold black and white signature stripe that has been so dominate in the past to a new refreshing, colour palette. Just look at what the designers for Spring Summer 2010 achieved.

Crazy coloured stripes, contrast stripes and stripes worked into knitwear. I think I might be a wee conscious to walk out in the red and blue Marc Jacobs number, However the cute little numbers in our Stripe shop will work just fine for me.

Post image for off the mat into the world

earlier this week i received an email about this amazing cause that i wanted to share.  off the mat into the world is a non-profit organization that uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change.  each year, they sponsor an international service project called the global seva challenge, with a different focus each time.  this year’s seva challenge is focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and education in south africa and one of the many events they are attending to raise awareness for this cause is the wanderlust festival!  the woman who contacted me, christina, also told me about these amazing wristbands and anklets that you can purchase to support the cause that are handwoven from recycled materials. i love them and i think one would make a beautiful addition to the collection of bracelets piling up on my wrist!

Anklet

if you are interested in buying one and supporting the cause check out the website or contact globalwristbands@gmail.com.
