hope everyone’s day is full of fireworks :)
what is everyone doing for the 4th of july weekend?
the nateva camping and music festival starts today in oxford, maine with artists including furthur, the flaming lips, she & him, passion pit and grizzly bear – sounds like a great time. and if you’re in philly, the annual free concert on the parkway takes place on sunday night.
we’re out at noon today and i’m heading to the beach!!! can’t wait…i’ll be posting throughout the weekend so don’t worry! :)
till then… these photos by christopher ferguson really capture what this weekend is all about.
it’s the 100th thursday poll! wooohoooo… so we told you the other day about how much we love bodysuits right now and we have three adorable options! which one rocks YOUR body?
the lace cami bodysuit:
and in case you missed it check out our blog post on bodysuit styling :)
the chiffon and lace slip dress is without a doubt one of our most versatile items. it’s all about the layering and how you style it – and fortunately we have the girls of free people highland park to offer up some fabulous ideas! (you may remember these very same girls showing multiple ways to wear the ruffle bottom slip not too long ago!)
doesn’t it look adorable with the floral peeking through the lace??
this might be my favorite – worn over skinny jeans with the we the free tiger’s eye tunic over top. such a great idea!
another amazing idea! throw it over the new crinkle floral dress for a totally unique look!
fantastic ideas, ladies!!
happy 1st of july! head over to our flickr page to download the large size of the calendar. i think this one is my favorite so far!
“the Let’s Colour Project is a worldwide initiative to transform grey spaces with colourful paint. a mission to spread colour all over the world.”
i am so in awe of these images! this project is amazing- so far they have transformed spaces in brazil, india, france and the united kingdom, and plans are in the works for many other locations. the above images are of the progress so far in favela santa marta in rio de janeiro.

even the drop cloths look beautiful!
there’s also a lot of cool stuff on their blog, like this:
a bunch of cyclists in berlin splashed 13 gallons of paint on the road in one of the city’s busiest intersections, and the bikes, cars and trucks that drove through created colorful splashes across the street. i love it.
our store in costa mesa, california, is now open! let’s take a look inside…
i love how they used these antique frames as display cases for jewelry! this would be fun to do at home, too!
all you’d need to do is cut some cork board, cover it in some fabric to look prettier, and frame it- then pin your jewelry inside!
pretty vintage pin cushions :) our team went to the rose bowl flea market in california to pick up some of the props for the new store.
doesn’t it look beautiful??
the girls of our san antonio store sent some cute photos showing how to style different items during the day and at night! check it out…
wear the downtown date dress during the day with the v cardi and patterned seed bead stretch waist belt. at night this dress is so perfect it doesn’t need much embellishment- wear it with sandals and a simple necklace like the neon druzy drip necklace.
the printed body con skirt looks sooo cute with the we the free lace and stripe short sleeve top for the daytime! at night, pair it with the seamless tupelo honey top and reese woven leather belt – you’ll turn some heads for sure :)
right now we’re really loving patchwork prints- colorful, nostalgic and perfect for a sweet summer picnic. which patchwork print is your favorite?
the paisley floral skirt:
or the patchwork paisley necklace dress:
the winner of our stripes poll was the we the free lace & stripe short sleeve top, with 44% of the vote!
