our team took advantage of the nice weather yesterday to get some special web shots outside… the wind wanted to make things a little bit difficult when it came to the backdrop :)
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.
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.
Sweet dreams are made of this – What’s spring without some prettiness and romance. The whimsical season is here and the billowing chiffons are ready to come out. Feel light as a feather in lace, crochet and chiffons. Roughened up with denim, cargo and jersey. Here’s an inspiration round up of our Lace shop (click to go shop)
spotted at sxsw…this is clementine, rocking our side by side dress!
i love how she’s wearing it with minimal accessories and boots…it also looks really cute with sandals and your wrists loaded up with bangles!
the results are in from last week’s patchwork poll and the winner by a longshot were the patchwork rugged cutoffs, with 44% of the vote!
this week i have the beach on my brain… the weather is getting warmer and soon i’ll be spending weekends at the shore and i can’t wait! i also can’t wait to wear some of our comfy beach styles… we have some great new items and i want to know which one you like best:

Who would have thought that Clogs could make such an impact on the fashion scene? They are the type of shoe I usually associated with Milkmaids and Amsterdam.
However, Karl Lagerfeld and Alexa Chung have caused a Storm in the market, by making The Clog look super cool. The models at Chanel’s Spring collection galloped down the runaway in these heavy footed clogs and Alexa has been seen looking mighty fine in them ever since.
We here at Free People fell in Love with them also. With this in mind I thought I would shine a light on the amazing selection we have here on the Free People site (click here). My favorite pair is the Charli Clog that I would wear with distressed boyfriend jeans, high-waisted skirts and pretty floral dresses. These are definitely the shoe off the summer!
the weather forecast for sxsw is looking beeeauuutiful! sunny skies and temperatures in the seventies – could it get any better than that?
with that in mind here is a suitcase of suggestions for what to bring if you’re heading to texas this week…straight from one of our experts who is going and has been there before:
first of all – pack light! bring a backpack. inside she recommends a pair of amazing, wear-anywhere jeans, easy lightweight tops and a good pair of boots and/or sandals. a breezy skirt or dress to wear during the day and into the night, and make sure to bring a light jacket because it gets chilly at night! i also threw in a bandana and a small bag that’s just big enough to hold a wallet, phone and camera for shows. sunglasses are a must and i never go anywhere without a journal – use it to keep track of shows and setlists! oh and the bathing suit in case you take a break and hit up barton springs, or one of the other awesome swimming holes austin has to offer.
the items pictured above are:
1. seneca rising aurora ruffle top; 2. classic aviator; 3. folklore sandal; 4. we the free sargeant jacket; 5. sidewinder slip dress; 6. jonsi distressed bandana; 7. harness harley boot; 8. patch printed onepiece; 9. military patch slouch skinny jeans; 10. studded side sling bag; 11. leather and canvas backpack
i’ve really been loving the photos our fans have been posting on our facebook page! you guys are so beautiful…thanks for sharing your pics :)
we had so much fun giving names and personalities to the different free people girls! (if you missed that blog post, check it out here). we also loved hearing which girl you all think you are! so as an extra special treat, we wanted to share this video one of our talented fpgirls made using some select images from our past catalogs – it gives a little more context to each girl: sandy, meadow, lou, candy & ginger!
i’m a mixture of sandy and meadow myself :)
