Post image for real fp girls – part 7

my greatest loves are my family and good friends – but i also love rice, japanese restaurants and flip flops (slippers)! my favorite place in the world is probably the beach, the couch with my brother, or my bed. i love sleep, even though i don’t always get a lot! a big hobby of mine is definitely sports. i was always a bit of a jock, playing my whole life and through college. my family has always been pretty athletic.   right now i’m still living at home and enjoying my relaxing saturdays! on a typical day off i’ll sleep in, mostly spend the day with my little cousins that are the cutest, funniest kids in the world (that ranges from playing pretty pretty princess to kickball). end the day with a movie, a beer and some laughs…i call that a good day! i’m inspired on a daily basis by my mood. depending on how i’m feeling on a certain day is what probably makes me notice certain things i might not on another day.  also just working here is very inspirational – everyone’s tastes are so different and exciting to see!

my greatest loves are my boyfriend, my mom and dexter terrier – one of my hobbies is terrier care and maintenance! i also love voraciously reading books about assorted topics. lately i have been obsessed with henry VIII and his various wives and children. cooking delicious food, watching law and order and going to scooter rallies are some of my other hobbies. on a typical day off i’ll be doing one of those things- if i am feeling lazy, then watching any incarnation of law and order on the couch. if i am feeling spry… hanging out with friends or family, wandering around south philly…having adventures! one of my favorite places is the beach – my secret dream is to be an old lady in a mumu on the jersey shore. i like music from hip hop to riot girl to metal to old reggae and soul. some favs are desmond dekker, bikini kill, new york dolls, the modern lovers, bratmobile, skatalites, biggie smalls, lil kim, toots and the maytals, peaches, guns n roses, the smiths, sean paul, the pogues, the clash, stevie wonder, alton ellis, john holt… my ipod is a hot mess!

To be free is to wear Brit boots with heat seal panties- and nothing else.

the orangery in london is my favorite place in the world – it overlooks kensington palace. they serve afternoon tea and have the best cucumber sandwiches i have ever tasted! i love photography, traveling, cooking, painting… i like making stuff. on a typical day off i’ll wake up and go to the corner diner for breakfast. then go to reading terminal and buy fresh fruit and then walk around philly and head to the park or water. i probably would end the night with dinner with some friends. i have some bizarre taste in music – i like ALL kinds. taylor swift, phil collins, edward sharpe, mariah carey, wendy rene are some of my favorites. the people i work with inspire me on a daily basis – seeing what these girls wear to work is inspiration enough!

Post image for Aztec me – Tribal Jewelry Trend

Untitled-3

Untitled-4

Tribal jewelry is the expression of faith, articulation of culture and rendition of archetypal imagination of human beings in its most primal form.

 

When it comes to tribal you have to think statement! Bold accessories that will scream warrior queen.

 

Don’t be scared of going big. I’ve always been a huge fan of Marni when it comes to getting courage to wear quirky, bold accessories. Consuelo Castiglioni adds a new meaning to the notion of wearing accessories. Her creations are always pieces of art with intense tribal eccentricity, beautiful and artistically chosen.

 

We have an amazing selection of African inspired jewelry in our accessories shop at the moment. We believe in piling high all the bracelets to give your summer wardrobe that added Aztec feel.

my greatest loves are my fiancé, family, friends and my cat. i’m a huge phillies fan and seeing them win the world series a couple of years ago was incredible! i also love spending time with friends and traveling. i recently went to seattle and dublin for the first time, which was amazing – but my favorite place in the world is definitely ocean city, NJ! i spend as many weekends there as i can. being on or near the beach is so relaxing and peaceful. i mostly listen to classic rock and some of my favorite bands are U2, the rolling stones, tom petty, the black crowes and radiohead. i’m a member of the world wildlife fund, and protecting the environment has always been one of the most important causes to me. the work this organization does to preserve nature and protect endangered species around the world is really inspiring to me!

As a free people girl of color, i was very disappointed to see that this "real girls" catalouge only featured white and asian girls... although they were all beautiful, i would have liked to see a more colorful representation of your behind the scenes fp girls! :/ beautiful catalougue though!!!
Deb -May 13, 2010, 8:21PM
I received my May catalog this week...it's one of my favorites to date. Your catalogs are always so gorgeous and I love your clothing, the whole Free People aesthetic is so me. I only wish I were 30 years younger:(

sun is shining, the weather is sweet… makes you want to put on a pair of sunglasses! probably the most important accessory for the summer months… so which ones do you love most?

the solid stendhal vintage with stones:

my greatest loves are my yorkie, art, traveling, swings, anything vintage, and all my nieces and nephews. i also love to bake and am always looking for new things to try – dessert is my weakness! on weekends i love to go out and explore the suburbs of philadelphia looking for new places to eat, shop, or just to take a nice walk. at night you will most likely find me downtown philadelphia at a bar where my boyfriend is DJ-ing having drinks with friends!

as mentioned, our may catalog features real girls who work for free people.  this month on the blog we’ll be profiling these lovely ladies and learning more about their life and style… starting with our web merchandiser!

i am inspired daily by the people i surround myself with. i have some very special people in my life, whether they are best friends, family members or work acquaintances, they’re all here for a reason.

i LOVE to travel… the pure, clean, crisp air of the colorado mountains gives me a feeling i can’t describe. a close second would have to be the redwood national forest in california- a magical place for sure! i also love going out to eat and trying new restaurants, and cooking.  i’m just starting to teach myself, so i started a cooking club dinner night with my girlfriends. some of my favorite things are live music, dancing at concerts with friends, pilates, riding my bike and hikes with my new pup… and flipping through fashion mags, which thankfully has become part of my job!  on a typical day off i sleep in with my dog, cat and boyfriend – yes,all in one bed – make banana pancakes and take a walk to the farmer’s market, then maybe stroll around the city with a girlfriend, checking out shops and getting manicures.  then out to see a show with some friends at night or dinner with my boyfriend!

rebecca1

i love lots of kinds of music – everything  from biggie smalls to hank williams jr.  some of my all-time favorites: the disco biscuits (i have followed them on tour for the past 10 years… so yeah, i guess i like them) phish- they changed my life, grateful dead, pink floyd, radiohead, muse, zeppelin, the doors, jay z, beck, nirvana…

and some newer favorites: phoenix, gorillaz, MGMT, hot chip, passion pit

my style…

rebecca5

1. genetic kelly patched flare; 2. easy corset slip; 3. printed smocked bandeau; 4. charli clogs.

Just going through this blog for the first time although I've loved Free People for longer. Used to go to a lot of Disco Biscuits shows myself (don't personally know Elisa although I did take a picture for her and a mutual friend) and am wearing a Free People dress to the Phish show I'm going to tonight :)

Marisa~~ I know your sister and husband very well! My boyfriend, Johnny is the godfather for Sophie!...we are going out to visit them at the end of the month in good old Colorado! I was at their wedding here in Philly, so I'm sure we have met! xo
