Post image for thursday poll – edition 118

i’m normally not a big heels person but we have some amazing party shoes right now that i would absolutely wear if i could walk in them… which ones do you like best?

the velvet crusher peeptoe:

the sicily lace up heels:

the luna pump:

the foxy fabric platform:

or the victorian lace ankle bootie:

time to vote!

last week’s party lookbook poll had a huge turnout- i think the largest for any thursday poll! it was close between looks three and five, but five took it with 25% – i wonder if the cute pup had something to do with it? :)

Post image for november catalog chapter four: wee people

chapter four of our november catalog features our new line for little girls, wee people! as mentioned, this line is the baby of our director of design, who wanted to create a line of clothing for her daughter with free people’s unique aesthetic.  her daughter was her muse, and is also one of the models in our catalog.Read More

oh my Freda is so precious. It is very refreshing to see little girls clothing on little girls and not teen clothing sized down. Kudos to all of you for helping to preserve a child's innocence. Can't wait to be gainfully employed again so my grand magnificents (aka our grand children)can wear wee people fashions.

Hi! I am a student in fashion design at Parsons in NYC, graduating this May, and I love love love your Wee People collection! I have been a fan of Free People since the day I first set foot in one of your shops and it has been my dream to design for you! You can imagine how excited I was-- as I happen to be specializing in children's wear!-- when I saw my favorite brand came out with a children's line! I was wondering if there was anyone I could contact from the Wee People design department to submit my resume and portfolio to? I would really love to be a part of the team!

Post image for three records

there’s a very cool show opening at space 1026 in philly tonight – featuring the work of chrissy piper, an amazing photographer who shot our upcoming december catalog!  the show consists of portraits from her 3 records series, in which she asks the people she photographs to name three records that changed and/or inspired their lives.  i think its such an amazing concept, and makes the portraits so much more personal.

also, two of our very inspiring fp girls were photographed for the 3 records series, so i wanted to share their portraits and their responses with you :)

our creative director:

doub records

and our videographer:




here’s a preview of the show from the space 1026 website:


also check out more of chrissy piper’s work on her website – i can’t wait to show you some shots from our december book, she did such an awesome job!

this of course got me thinking about how i would respond to the 3 records question. my answers are probably pretty typical but i think i would have to say…


bob marley’s legend, not because i think its the best collection of his music, but because that album to me represents my happiest childhood memories, being at the beach with my family. the beatles rubber soul, which my best friend in grade school gave me (on cassette), and sparked my obsession with the band that is still going strong. and bob dylan’s blood on the tracks because it got me through a really difficult time, and still does when i’m having a bad day.

what are three records that changed and/or inspired your life? i’d love to hear :)

Maux -Nov 08, 2010, 3:27AM
1. fleetwood mac, rumours. actually, ALL fleetwood mac 2. "africa" by toto 3. all kings of leon 4. all josh ritter 5. and the song "can't you hear me knocking" by the rolling stones.
Linda -Nov 05, 2010, 10:43PM
Ani difranco changed my life, too ::sigh::! So did Tori Amos' Little Earthquakes and The Cranberries!! It is way too difficult to narrow it down to three :/

Post image for holiday fashion show

a couple of months ago we had a big meeting at the home office with all of our store managers from across the country. as part of the meeting we had a free people holiday fashion show featuring some of the looks from our november catalog on models and on some of the girls who work here in the office. it was so fun seeing everything go down a runway – and now that the catalog’s out i can show you some pictures that one of the managers snapped during the show!













they all looked amazing – but wee people stole the show :)

our holiday displays are going up in all of our stores next week and i can’t wait to show you photos, they’re breathtaking!

elaine -Nov 06, 2010, 3:34AM

Post image for holiday boutiques featuring blogger picks!

have you guys checked out our holiday boutiques online yet? it looks so beautiful- i am in love with the lookbooks, which i’ll post about later on – but also we (jemma and i) got to do something fun and pick our favorite items from the november catalog, which are featured in the blogger picks section of the holiday boutiques! here are the collections i made featuring our picks, which you can also view in the holiday boutiques right here.

my picks:

“my favorite thing about the holiday season is the smell of fresh pine…it reminds me of going to the christmas tree farm to cut down our tree each year when i was little.”

jemma’s picks:

jemma collection

“holiday season brings warm feelings for me – a time that’s reminiscent of great family love. i get really nostalgic when i start to smell the season’s scents; cinnamon, mulled wine, figs and the crispness of the air. i also like that i can get away with wearing a little bit of sparkle almost every day during this season too!”

stay tuned because we’ll be adding picks from some of our favorite bloggers soon!

Post image for free people @ space 15 twenty

on our last day in cali we did some shopping in hollywood and stopped by the free people store at space 15 twenty. i was stoked to see the store because i’ve heard so much about space 15 twenty. it’s a cute little spot with a courtyard where they hold monthly flea markets and live music – there’s also an urban outfitters, an art gallery, and umami burger, which i didn’t try but is supposedly a must when in LA.

and i really can’t say enough how awesome the girls are who work in our stores. they are so warm and friendly and have amazing style – it was lovely meeting you ladies!





















check out space 15 twenty’s blog here!

Are there any plans to open up a store in/near Sacramento? I think The Fountains in Roseville would be a perfect location! I'm dying to shop you guys somewhere other than online! xoxo,Boho Diva

i think their owner might need to get them a shag rug!
