the free people family extends far beyond the home office – the girls that work in our stores are amazing and they make shopping at the stores a special experience for everyone who walks in the door. today i’d like to introduce you to kim, from our torrance, CA store! read on to learn a little bit more about her and her personal style.

“i love delicate and light fabrics like lace, silk and chiffon.  i toughen it up by adding mixed-metal jewelry and accessories.  i am a juxtaposition of candy and lou by day and ginger by night!”

what is your theme song?

“head on” by the jesus and mary chain- this song gets me movin and groovin. (listen below!)

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

cambodia to visit the motherland for the first time.

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

laptop with internet access for unlimited entertainment, my boyfriend for companionship and a vintage, champagne colored beaded gown.

what is the one article of clothing you can’t live without?

even though i’m a fashion junkie, this is a surprisingly difficult question to answer- everything i own i can’t live without! for the sake of answering this question i will say my stuart weitzman suede ankle boots because i can wear them from dawn to dusk and still dance in them all night long.

what is your biggest fear?

dying young :(

winter, spring, summer or fall?

spring- a season of celebration, rebirth and dewy flowers.

what color are you?

violet is harmonious and splendid and my favorite color.

what is your motto?

“the world is a playground and life is pushing my swing” – natalie kocsis.

what is your favorite hobby?

writing, living and dreaming of fashion.

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

my dad, who passed away when i was 8 – i’d love to spend a day as daddy’s little girl!

Post image for alexandra in the forest

i’m in awe over this photography by alexandra valenti.  sunsoaked and infused with bohemian spirit, her images evoke summer and hikes in the woods, cooling off in hidden springs, and backyard barbecues with friends.  i want to step inside these photos and be a part of them.

check out her website here.

Post image for california girls

as you may have seen by now, free people has categorized our customers into 5 different styles and given them names. well today for the blog our carlsbad, california, location put together an outfit for each style using their favorite fp items! check out the five fp girls: california style!

sandy is the beach-going, laid back surfer girl. she is usually outfitted in our beach line or our sundresses but plays them down with sandals or flip-flops. here she is wearing the gorgeous lace embrace skirt as a dress, with the seed bead stretch waist belt and charlie hat!

lou is a tomboy and she loves we the free – she wears tees and boyfriend jeans and throws on a pair of converse or funky boots to complete her look. she lives in our jersey raglan top, shown here with the acid wash knit pant!

meadow
meadow is bohemian and she loves our flower headbands, crochet tops and woodstock-inspired clothing. she pairs her outfits with gladiators or cowboy boots and she most definitely is attending coachella! she adores tops like the lace flutter tunic or chrissy lace drape top, worn here with a crochet flower on lace headband and patchwork rugged cutoffs, and hippie jewelry like the devandra layered necklace.

ginger
ginger is the girl that comes in looking for a stunning dress to wear out on the town! she loves our tight-fitting dresses like the downtown date dress and sexy tops that show off her figure. here she’s wearing the poison ivy tunic (similar to the ruffled flowers shift dress) over the ruffled layers skirt.

candy
candy is our pretty in pink girl – everything she picks out has beautiful detailing and is very girly! she loves sweet floral and ruffle dresses like the dazzling ditsy dress and the streamer ruffle dress, shown here with the field of dreams necklace.

Post image for fp style spotting!

check out vanessa hudgens looking very bohemian cool in our janis brimmed hat! i love how she paired it with a boyish shirt-dress, belt and sandals – it’s such a relaxed and stylish look for spring.

get her look with the fp items pictured above: janis brimmed hat; nicholas k fredda shirt; long gypsy ring; vintage studded belt; libia wrap sandal; tumbleweed tote.

Post image for celebrities craft for a cause

wouldn’t you like to own an item hand crafted or signed by one of your favorite musicians?

crafts for a cause is an online charity auction organized by binki shapiro of the band little joy. she gathered together a bunch of fellow musicians to craft items like tshirts, totebags, and artwork, or contribute photos and items – and it’s all up for bidding now here.

they may be a little pricey, but it’s for a good cause — all proceeds go towards relief efforts in haiti.

more info about crafts for a cause can be found on the website here.
