Post image for rose bowl treasures

prior to opening our new store in costa mesa, ca, a couple of our display team members who work out on the west coast made a trip to the rose bowl flea market to pick up some props for the store.  one of them shared her photos from the shopping excursion and i found myself practically drooling over the blankets, accessories and various little trinkets she found.  philly needs a (monthly!!) flea market like this! i would be in heaven.

read more to see lots more photos!

In any case…it would be nice to see more of a variety of women on the blog. Different sizes, shapes, races, and styles. I think some of you are missing the point of the critique on the “skinny models” in these comments. Summer is amazing…and it is enjoyed by all girls and womem… Not just skinny, tall, WHITE, women. Give the readers some curves and women of color too!
fp julia -Jul 04, 2010, 11:32AM
hi everyone! thank you for your opinions i will keep them in mind. just for the record these are not our models and i posted these pics because i think they're beautiful and capture the attitude of carefree summer fun.

Post image for thursday poll – edition 100!

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 solid v tank bodysuit:

the lace cami bodysuit:

19067578_001_b

or the solid short sleeve scoop bodysuit:

19080126_001_a

and in case you missed it check out our blog post on bodysuit styling :)


the winner of our patchwork poll was the patchwork paisley necklace dress with 27% of the vote :)

Post image for style how-to! the lace & chiffon slip

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!)

wear it over the ruffle up solid tunic to get a cute “little black dress” look! accessorized here with the reese woven leather belt and peacock charm necklace.

32207_439041090860_139404335860_6109083_5886140_n
dress it down over the fp lightweight super skinny jeans and calluna lace tank, with the linked leather stretch belt over top.

32207_439041685860_139404335860_6109111_4332985_n
doesn’t it look adorable with the floral peeking through the lace??

32207_439041700860_139404335860_6109112_4597662_n
this might be my favorite – worn over skinny jeans with the we the free tiger’s eye tunic over top. such a great idea!

32207_439041710860_139404335860_6109114_2768080_n

32207_439041720860_139404335860_6109115_3393427_n
on the left – get a more boyish look with skinny jeans and we the free graphic tee underneath.
on the right – get girly with a printed mini under the slip and the medallion tunic over top.

32207_439042025860_139404335860_6109120_1277672_n
another amazing idea! throw it over the new crinkle floral dress for a totally unique look!

32207_439042070860_139404335860_6109126_740576_n
and last but certainly not least – the slip adds cute femininity to cargo shorts and the short sleeve scoop front tunic!

fantastic ideas, ladies!!

let’s color!

Post image for let’s color!

“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.

there’s also a lot of cool stuff on their blog, like this:

berlin-art2-577x769

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.

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.

night and day

Post image for night and day

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…

here is the malawi vines dress, looking cute and casual with boots, carrie’s woven fedora and a crossbody bag for the daytime.  at night keep it simple with a waist belt and some layered necklaces!

two

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.

three

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 :)

thanks ladies!
