this is heidi – an adorable customer who came into our bucktown, chicago store already wearing our lightshow babydoll tank and raving about how much she LOVES free people! our fp girls got to know her while she had fun modeling some outfits for them…
where are you from?
what is it that draws you to free people?
i love the attention to detail!
what’s your favorite free people item in your closet?
i’m buying it right now! these jeans are amazing!
in case you’re wondering, heidi walked out with the FP destroyed skinny jeans she’s wearing in the photo. the other items she’s modeling with the jeans are the rib & lace tank in citron over the pucker up corset cami with the pacific coast jacket, and on the right she’s wearing the floral tiered halter dress. she looks great!
the girls who work in our virginia stores sent me the following writeup on an event taking place in their area that they love – the national cherry blossom festival!
on march 27th, people began to flock to the DC metropolitan area to witness a breathtaking event – the flowering of the cherry blossoms along the tidal basin! in 1912, japan gave the cherry blossom trees to the citizens of the united states a gift of friendship. the cherry blossom festival is held every year – this year from march 27th until april 11th, and is located just 5 minutes from our free people store in clarendon, va, and 20 minutes from our tyson’s corner, va location. throughout the two-week festival, customers who visit the stores are inspired by the cherry blossoms, which symbolize the fresh, bright renewal that spring delivers. the free people girl loves venturing into DC to enjoy the colorful blossoms blooming in her path and to fulfill her love of nature.
read more to see some stunning photos and a selection of free people items that evoke the spirit and beauty of the cherry blossoms!
the lollapalooza lineup is here!
green day and lady gaga? no thank you. soundgarden, arcade fire, strokes, phoenix, MGMT, jimmy cliff, black keys, national, spoon, grizzly bear, wolfmother, yeasayer, the XX, edward sharpe (and i could keep going)? YES PLEASE.
one of the hardest things about festival season is deciding which one to go to, because only in my wildest dreams can i attend them all. this just might be a lollapalooza year, although i still think the sasquatch lineup is the best… lollapalooza will take place august 6th-8th in grant park, chicago.
don’t forget to stay tuned to the blog as a couple of our girls are headed to coachella next weekend – and if you’re going, maybe we’ll see you there!
cara has been with us at king of prussia, pa as an associate for quite a while now and has been a great part of our team. her hard work and love for the brand has landed her an operations internship at the home office this summer – we look forward to having you here, cara!
read on to get to know her a little bit better :)
happy april 1st! let’s start out the day and the month with a thursday poll, shall we? now that it’s getting warm out i’m taking out all my spring clothes and one thing i find i always need a new version of is a staple tank top that goes with almost anything. i could see myself living in any one of these this summer…which do you like best?
the sparkle heart tank:
the ruffleback cami:
the horizon tank:
or the sweet thing tank:
i was looking around online last week for instructions on tie-dying easter eggs- as in this kind of tie-dye:
instead i found this. i’ve never seen this before… apparently silk ties have another purpose- they can be used to create amazingly beautiful easter eggs! i found a great tutorial on our best bites that walks you through the process.
thanks to everyone who posted a comment telling us what color of the rainbow you are!
most of you have got the blues… blue had the most responses by far, followed by purple and green.
our winner, chosen at random, is leslie from ohio – who said she was “definitely green.” congrats leslie!
