Post image for store employee profile: kristen from soho!

meet kristen! she’s a sales associate at our soho store and a dj in her spare time.  read on as she answers our free people questionnaire and check out some pics of her rocking fp as she djs and travels around japan!

what is your theme song?
“ice cream” by the australian band muscles has been my theme song ever since i heard it a few years ago. it’s all about my favorite things: having a good time and frozen treats!

if you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?
japan! i have a lot of family there, but i barely get to see them because it’s such an expensive trip. plus, tokyo is the capital of cuteness and the shopping there is incredible! too bad they don’t sell shoes big enough to fit my size 10 feet…

out and about in kyoto, japan – wearing the blank jeggings every day!

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?
moby-dick, a magical fruit tree that grows every type of fruit and SPF 30.

what is your biggest fear?
space! have you SEEN “total recall”??

winter, spring, summer or fall?
living in my own invincible summer!

what color are you?
tie-dye

what is your motto?
always hungry.

what is your favorite hobby?
definitely cooking. i love to host huge sunday meals for my friends so that we can chat and eat all day long. i’ve always been a baker but am currently trying to teach myself french cuisine.

if you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?
bea arthur! who’s funnier than her?

dj
when she’s not working at our free people soho store you can catch kristen dj-ing at the knitting factory in brooklyn, every thursday from 10pm-2am, with her partner in crime emilia (top left).

how would you describe your personal style? what are your favorite items from free people right now?
i was a little bit of a metal-head growing up and never let go of my ripped jeans, studded jackets and loose tees, but now that i’m older, i’ve learned to incorporate floral patterns, bright colors and textures into my outfits.  i LOVE the we the free solid swept away tunic in pink… it’s the exact color of raspberry sherbert and looks amazing with my marbled cross necklace.

i’ve also learned that my into the mystic dress is SO versatile — perfect layered under an a-line skirt or sheer dolman top.

picks

1. blank denim legging; 2. we the free solid swept away tunic; 3. into the mystic dress; 4. bleached keds.

how cute are these shirts? they’re for sale over at print liberation, but more importantly they were designed by our very own lizzy janssen! she’s not only a talented artist but a total sweetheart and very funny…read on for an interview with lizzy and to see more of her amazing work!

where do you draw inspiration for your work?
i get inspiration from nature and science. i like to draw things a little mysterious which seem to have been overtaken by nature and color. in my mind i’m always drawing miss havisham’s house from great expectations.

who are some of your personal favorite artists?
i like artwork that is really colorful and has a sense of humor. lucienne day, maxwell loren holyoke-hirsch, kime buzzelli, betsey walton, margaret killigan, martha rich,  esther pearl watson.

do you listen to music while you work? what do you listen to?
yes lots of music, a lot of times lyrics end up in drawings…
i like folk and blues, the carter family, woody guthrie, hank williams, leadbelly, howlin’ wolf, joan baez, bob dylan, neil young.

what are some of your hobbies?
i like to collect antiques and go to flea markets and auctions with my dad! and mostly reading, hanging out with my cats june and arlo, watching movies, and walking all over philly.

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?
high heels,  my cats standing on top of a record player with bob dylan’s “nashville skyline” …and eyeliner :)

how would you describe your personal style? which free people girl are you?
i’m a little bit country, and i’m a little bit rock and roll! i think i could be a mix of candy and lou – dresses and heels but not too girly.

what is something that most people don’t know about you?
i had a magical childhood living in penang, malaysia, where i was a puzzle box model.

Post image for who’s that girl…

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?
toronto

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!
