Stay inspired and dont miss a thing. Weekly updates from BLDG 25

Post image for Style File: Assistant Designer (Lou)

This week’s StyleFile is an effortless beauty who’s style has a laid back California beach vibe. I don’t know if it’s her long, wavy blonde locks, the colorful friendship bracelets, or the heart tattoo on her wrist that scream Cali, but it’s definitely there. She wears a lot of stellar grunge pieces – ripped and splattered jeans, a slouchy knit hat, baggy tees, and kicks. She’ll then mix it up with an awesome Native American inspired necklace or poncho. There’s no doubt, she looks like your quintessential American girl – active and full of life. Her vivacity can’t be restricted with pompous or tailored clothing – she has no time for that.

These jeans are perfectly slouchy and distressed. Get the look with a grungy graphic tee, hat, and Converses.




This photo makes me want Summer. And colorful bracelets

In this cold Winter weather, everyone needs a good throw on poncho to stay warm.

She loves her Native American accessories just as much as the rest of us at Free People. Some great variations are on our website right now here, here, and here.

We love loafers and the cozy eagle fairisle tunic

…and floral button up shirts…


…and doc martens!


pretty little details…


Great layering basics: the peter pan lace top (looks great on its own or under other tops and dresses!), the super-comfy laguna coast pullover, model Pania Rose in her favorite, the crafty cuff thermal, and the awesome Pink Floyd tee.


Cute glasses and hair :)


The embroidered midtown jacket looks so cool with a plaid shirt and slouchy jeans!

The lady who is pregnant is SO beautiful! She looks great and seems so confident! I hope everything is/goes well with her pregnancy! :)

Oops... I should specify. I love the print of the one that is paired with the pleated skirt.

Post image for Office Style: American vs. British

In line with our catalog theme this month, I thought I would do some fun vs. themed office styles. Our home office has a surprisingly bountiful population of Brits who’ve crossed the big pond to work for Free People. They all have great style, so I thought that for this week I would do British vs. American style. I love them both, but tell us, which do you relate to more??

The Brits:

Welsh sisters! Both wearing an FP intimates top. Shop the updated version here.


The Hand Crochet Maxi Dress layered over an old FP beach style.




The Americans:


Get the look with our Destroyer Tee, FP High Waisted Printed Shorts, Eloise Platforms, and Sheer Tights


Liking the poncho? We have a great selection here.


The American Rebel Tee gone good girl



The Tattered Flag Scarf puts the Americana cherry atop this look.



The FP Skinny Cords in dusty rose look great with this muted and soft look.

Post image for Style File: Senior Graphic Designer

I’ve always thought that our Senior Graphic Designer has amazing style, but for some reason I was under the impression that she was one of those who aren’t a big fan of having their photo taken. I’ve since discovered that I was wrong, and so to make up for lack of showcasing this woman’s amazing style, I decided to feature her as this week’s Style File.

One great aspect to our Graphic Designer’s fashion is her keen eye for texture and pattern. She understands pieces, and how to show off their interesting features. For example, she’ll layer a fun color underneath to show off a top layer’s loose knit, or she’ll call attention to a bold, retro-inspired pattern by stacking it up with basics. Either way, she’s great at creating a balance so that her looks never look like too much.

I’m also a HUGE fan of this woman’s ring collection. She has a great assortment of chunky knuckle decoration full of cute animals and edgy cuts. She’s not afraid to pile on the rings, and will often pair them back to a sweet choker.

Equally as impressive, is her awesome shoe collection. She’s a big heel girl, and her shoes always have attitude. The good sturdy heel gives her look a nicely confident spin.

Overall, her wardrobe of fun pieces is gutsy and playful. It never gets boring seeing what this girl is going to wear to the office.

The Polka Dot Blouse pops perfectly with her bright red booties







Get the look with a large gauge knit like this and the a fun colored buttondown like our Sheer Buttondown Tunic in Mint Julep.






Here she updates the poncho by wearing it in a totally modern way layered over a basic button up and shorts.




Try a great choker with a collared shirt to get the look. The Tribal Triangle Collar is a great option to do it with at an easy price .

Sundal -Feb 02, 2012, 7:20AM
Amazing, just so damn chic.

Winter has most definitely hit here in Philadelphia. We’re snuggling up in sweaters, jackets, and lush vests here at the office. I noticed a lot of café au lait hues mixed in amongst the stripes and fun patterns that we’re falling for.


Decked out in FP wearing the Fairisle Pullover (similar one here) and Brit Boot


She made this necklace! Sweet, right? I love how it plays together with the other textures of her outfit.






jess -Jan 06, 2012, 12:28PM
okay, her boy name sweater is kick a**. I think Seattle needs a little more grunge, way to go PA
-Jan 06, 2012, 2:02AM

Post image for 1 Day, 2 Parties

We had two reasons to celebrate today! First we had a birthday breakfast celebration for our amazing office coordinator, and then we had a baby shower at lunch for our email marketing manager who is expecting very soon. You ladies both rock!!





She loves scooters and scooter rallies, so one of our co-workers brought in this adorable Barbie scooter for her! I’m so jealous I never had one of these!

A big congrats to the mom-to-be :) xo

Nikki Qiao -Jan 06, 2012, 12:37AM

Post image for Style File: Design Assistant – Ginger

This week’s style file is no wuss. She’s decorated with tats, and sports a dark bob which give a toughness to any look she wears. The actual outfits she pulls together tend to lean on the girly side, creating a nice balance with the permanent edgyness. She loves tights and cute flared mini’s. She peppers in ditzy prints, lace, and feminine detailing. And then there are the shoes, she has a collection of stunners – your ordinary black ankle boot wedges, but with badass elements. Overall, she has a great mix of tough and sweet. Check out her week in style:



















Gina -Apr 01, 2014, 8:20PM
Great style! NB: Minis is plural, not possessive (mini's).
Sundal -Feb 02, 2012, 8:00AM
She is GORGEOUS. Very Bettie Page.

Post image for Braving the Elements

Sometimes, as winter blankets our surroundings with its bitter chill, it’s tough to stay fashionably motivated. Rising out of bed in the morning involves a laborious upheaval from an all-too-comfortable toasty nest. The last thing you want to do is spend time, half-naked in a drafty bedroom, pulling an outfit together. It tends to turn into, “grab the first items in your drawer, and pile them on as fast as you can.”

To dress well as the air gets chillier though, we’ve come to realize that the under layer becomes less important. To pull off a great look that won’t leave you freezing, it’s all about that top winter layer. Here, some of the Free People girls show us how to move into the new season while keeping it fresh with a few of our favorite jackets. They remind us that a good scarf and hat can go a long way to trap in heat, and, don’t forget, the season’s must-have item – a pair of killer close-toed boots. All of these things – jacket, boots, and winter accessories – will help you bring those easy under layers into the new season.

So chill and relaxed! Our sweater designer is wearing: The Vintage Wine Leather Jacket, Pink Floyd Tee, Joan of Arctic Boot, Loop Knit Beanie, Crystal Honeycomb Bib necklace, and her own pants.




Oh yes, the jacket is reversible! This look on our New Romantics Design Assistant is perfect for heading out to a holiday party. She’s wearing: Ana’s Beaded Party Dress, FP One Reversible Fur Parka, Jonesy Heeled Hiker boots, and an old Free People necklace much like this one.



Our Visual Merchandiser is the master of layering and quirky details. She’s wearing: The Royal Blue PeacoatFP Skinny Cords, Lacy Layering Top, cropped tank like this one, La Bourse Plaid Button-Down, Northern Lights Boots, and the Regal Stone Necklace.



FP Julia is rocking an Americana look in our: IRO Denim Sherpa Jacket, Tory Fringe Boot, and upcoming American Flag Scarf.



Looking rock-n-roll ready, our Sample Coordinator is wearing: the Embellished Leather Jacket, Fishnet Long Sleeve Top, FP High Waisted Textured Shorts, London Opaque Tights, Vegan Docs, and the Eclipse Necklace.

Post image for Style File: Merchandising Intern

Fresh out of college, our merchandising intern here at the office has sleek, cool-girl style. She pulls looks together with the ease of an off-duty model – rarely sporting color, and rocking a repertoire of easy tees, skinny jeans, ankle boots, and leather. Tattoos pepper her body with an added edge that’s subtle, but present. Behind all that seriousness is a sweet girl ready to ask you how your weekend was and share a funny story behind the pieces she’s wearing. Seeing her outfit each day was an excitement – I hope it you all think so too!

The Free People Pretty Suede Ankle Boot :)

We’re layering up to brace the elements here in Philly today. It’s one of the coolest days we’ve had yet this fall and boy is that wind slap-in-the-face cold. There’s no doubt we have tights on underneath our shorts, and those jackets are no longer an option, but a necessity. Of course, that doesn’t stop the lovely Free People ladies from throwing on an ace outfit. Check out how we’re doing it today…

The Jenny Floppy Hat gets me every time…

This is the very first vintage dress she ever bought, and now she has a whole closet full. I love pieces with great stories like this.

There’s a cool factor to leather jackets that nothing else quit seems to pull off.
