Post image for fp holiday gift guide: meadow

meadow loves to spend the holidays outdoors. every year she and her friends take off for a cabin in the woods where they spend nights huddled round bonfires drinking hot chocolate, telling stories and playing songs on guitars and wooden flutes.  they wake up early to watch the sun rise before exchanging gifts on christmas morning.

meadow wishlist

win meadow over with gifts that appeal to her creative side and connection with nature.  the vintage peter max postcards would inspire her artistically, as would a journal to record her thoughts and dreams.  she would love our western-inspired jewelry like turquoise necklaces and rings, the native gypsy cuff and meeko feather earring. The lasso pony holders will keep her hair out of her face on adventures and she’d love the gretta over the knee slipper socks because they’re cute, comfy and environmentally friendly. meadow wears clothing that is special and unique like her, and the fp one desert florals maxi skirt would remind her of a field of wildflowers. the fp one bandana tie halter has the creative details she is drawn to, and she would live in the desert peasant tunic. finally, tough accessories like a leather crossbody or hat that will last her a lifetime.

I view all the design! I am also a meadow girl and like the meadow design and fashions. Thanks for providing such useful information. I really appreciate your professional approach.

I always thought I was most of a Meadow girl, and this description just proves it! Most of the things were already on my wishlist. And drinking hot chocolate around the fireside - what could be better? :)! LOVE IT !

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: candy

candy dreams all year long of a white christmas and counts down the days until its time to decorate for the holidays.  tradition is important to her and even hanging ornaments on the tree is special to her as each ornament  holds sentimental value, reminding her of her childhood and years passed. on the weekend she’ll put on christmas carols and fill her home with the scents of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg as she bakes cookies and then walks from door to door offering them to her neighbors.

she loves nothing more than giving gifts to her loved ones, and when it comes to receiving, her favorite gifts are the ones that are the most thoughtful and meaningful.

candy wishlist

sentimental gifts like a ring with her initial or a bracelet with gems the color of her birth stone will mean the world to candy.  a vintage tin full of her favorite candy and sweet greeting cards so she can send her love to her friends and family are gifts she will cherish.  soft, girly items like our centered pullover in soft pink, the heart on your sleeve thermal, lacey layering skort and crochet socks and hat will appeal to her fashion sense and top it all off with the perfect stocking stuffer – our mini taco coin pouch. fill it with barrettes, a filigree hair comb and some nail polish for an added surprise!

p.s. in case you missed it, check out our lou gift guide. sandy, ginger and meadow comiong soon!

I thought I was Candy for awhile, but not this one because I never really liked the holidays. I dream of things but just not the holidays. I like Candy, more so, when she wears very passionate, romantic styles..
zoos -Dec 10, 2010, 8:25PM
I love this! I actually really love the dress on the right on the little "fp holiday gift guide" sign. Is that made by free people and do they still make it? :)

the holiday decorations are up in building 543 and it looks lovely… the trees, garlands and twinkling lights bring a warmth to the space that is very comforting as it gets colder and colder outside…

Post image for fun giveaway on twitter!

we’re doing another giveaway – this time on twitter!

a lot of you have been asking about the amazing saddle bag on the back of the motorcycle on the cover of our december catalog.  this one of a kind piece was made in india, using the same antique quilts used in many of our store displays and embellished with studs and leather fringe.  this bag has seen some wear and tear but that just makes it look even cooler! can you imagine having this on the back of your bike?!?

bag

to win all you have to do is head over to our twitter page and tweet a story or memory involving a motorcycle @ us with this link: http://ow.ly/3kGYq. if you don’t already, make sure you follow us on twitter so you don’t miss out on fun stuff like this!

i thought this one was pretty cute:

“im secretly in love with my boyfriend’s motorcycle & i pretend to ride it while it’s stationed in the garage.”

the winner will be selected at random on friday. good luck!

fp julia -Dec 08, 2010, 10:19AM
i guess maybe it's a bag/case? haha...the interior is a sturdy plastic.
Cat horn -Dec 08, 2010, 8:20AM
Those are absolutely awesome! I really wish I had a motorcycle to put them on :-)

Post image for holiday getaways – lou

lou would be in her element at a ski resort where she can snowboard to her heart’s content, and one of the best places for winter activities is lake tahoe. we love squaw valley – which is also where the wanderlust yoga and music festival takes place. lou could stay at the squaw valley lodge where she can ski right out onto the mountain. when she gets tired, she can relax in the outdoor hot tub and then cozy up by the fire in an armchair with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book… even lou needs to indulge herself every once in a while, and for that there’s a fireside indoor spa!

other activities that lou will love can be found at high camp.  a scenic ride up the mountain in the squaw valley cable car and she can enjoy ice skating, snow tubing and moonlit snowshoe tours, all with panoramic views of lake tahoe and the high sierra.

for more info on squaw valley click here. the website is referring to this past month as “snowvember” because they’ve already gotten eleven feet of snow – and counting!

Keri -Dec 04, 2010, 6:19PM
squaw valley is only 3/4 hrs from me and I first went in summer when I was 17 and even then it was magical and have been dying to go back sense...I <3 tahoe!!!!

I have purchased a couple of slips and LOVE them! I also cannot wait for the December catalog. Anxiously! *Sidenote* What I really really want to see is a wardrobe mix. 10-12 items... (including slips) and different ways to wear all of the items. I used to love when FP did that, it always helped me out with new ideas. Plus you can buy all of the pieces in the wardrobe. Please consider doing that again soon. =)
fionazhou201 -Dec 03, 2010, 3:51AM
I like fp one clara in lace dress, simple and fashionable.

i’m sure some of you remember these adorable stockings we sold a few years back.  i’ve been kicking myself ever since for not buying one – so i finally decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own free people stocking inspired by the ones above!

i went over to a.c. moore during my lunch break in search of a stocking and embellishments.  they didn’t have the plain old red stockings i had in mind, but this knit one worked just as well. i also got some fake fur trim, ribbon, feathers, sequin trim, and some tassels and pom poms i didn’t end up using.

IMG_1445

IMG_1453

the only items i used from here at the office were a free people bag (which many of you may have!) and some strips of fabric from our display team.

IMG_1449

the only other things you need for this project are scissors and fabric glue! your stocking might come out a little bit prettier if you sew things onto it but the glue worked just fine and was quicker :)

IMG_1451

i started out by gluing the fur trim to the top and then worked my way down by adding different embellishments at random. it only took a little over an hour, and here’s the end result!

IMG_1459

i’m really happy with it and it will look lovely hanging by my desk. now i want to make more!

IMG_1460

if any of you are inspired to make your own stockings i would love to see photos! you can send them to blog@freepeople.com :)

debbie -Oct 20, 2014, 6:10PM
I want to buy !!! Does anyone know where to go to buy stockings like this one? I too should have purchased years ago when I saw these fabulous stockings in the FP catalog! Thanks Debbie
Alysaa -May 05, 2011, 1:00AM
