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.

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. =)

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_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 :)

i can’t believe thanksgiving is the day after tomorrow… not quite sure where this year went. this time last year, i asked people around the office what they were thankful for. i was thinking about it today and this year i am definitely most thankful for the people in my life – the new ones who have made their way into my heart and the old ones that will never leave.

what are you most thankful for this year?
