Post image for blogger wishlist

when we launched our holiday boutiques this month, i told you guys about a special section for blogger picks, featuring jemma and my favorite items. well today i wanted to share some new additions- we asked a few of our favorite bloggers to pick their favorites as well – here they are!

chantal of cocorosa – i’ve been following her blog for a while now but i had the pleasure of meeting her a few months ago and she is seriously adorable!  if you want to know what she’s like check out this video on her blog. i love people who don’t take themselves too seriously! and she always looks amazing- i think she can pull of any look!

shop chantal’s picks here.

dylana (2)

we met dylana of nana in wonderland when we worked with her and her sister natalie on our october catalog, and we fell in love with both of them! her style is a lovely combination of classic and vintage with a modern twist. she’s also a great photographer and she can play guitar and sing!

our holiday displays are now up in our stores and they are so, so beautiful… like stepping into a magical forest dusted with snow,  where trees drip with crystals and shiny trinkets catch the moonlight and twinkle like stars…

from our display team:

this year’s holiday display was inspired by vintage snowy showgirl dresses mixed in with antique silver and icy blue trinkets. we have intricately cut snowflake curtains paired with sheer glittery booti print panels – inspired by actual indian booti prints. we wanted to balance the delicate dresses and panels with organic branches and rugged cardboard gift boxes.  then to add sparkle and pops of color, we added the neon melon crystal chains to hang in groups from the ceiling.

their inspiration:

and now here are the installed displays at our ardmore and king of prussia, pa stores! i actually drove by our ardmore store saturday night and it looked amazing with the twinkling lights in the dark.

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.

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.
Noelle -Jan 07, 2011, 6:04AM
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:

YOTTER_3 REC_cp

CARRIE_YOTTER RECORDS)

CARRIE_YOTTER RECORDS)2

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

preview_02

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…

three

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!
