Where can I get a watch like the one in the second picture from the bottom on the right? Is it made entirely out of watch faces?

It’s easy to see why this week’s style file landed a job as Free People’s intimates designer. She won’t just look at a piece as something to be worn underneath your clothing, but she also has the creative mind that can look at it in different contexts, and style it in completely unexpected ways that work. Her everyday wear mixes great intimates pieces – think slips, lace, and bloomers – with more conservative pieces and funky accessories. Her style borders the line between graceful beauty and edgy tough girl. It’s that deep understanding of intimates, and amazing ability to style them in a variety of ways, that explains perfectly why this is her area of expertise.


Her mom gave her this gorgeous vintage night gown. I think it might be one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve ever seen.





I would have never thought to pair bloomers with tights and a sweater for day – brilliant idea! Try the Floral Bloomers and the Easy Days Off the Should Sweater to get the look.

It’s definitely fall. The office was filled with cozy looks to prove it. Sweaters, boots, and jackets were at every turn.

I knew I loved these boots, they give this outfit that special added touch.

Her knit hat is so cute! And I love the surprise detailing in her tights.


The Embroidered Midtown Jacket – perfect for fall!

Her top was so cool. I love how intricate it is in its detailing.

I love to hear the meaning and stories behind the little things people keep at their desks. Everyone’s desk space here is so unique and full of tiny, fascinating details. Here’s a look at the Free People office coordinator’s desk top!

1. The headphones were actually a Christmas present from my father last year.  They help when I’m looking for new store music!

2. This little giraffe statue was given to me by our creative director.  She’s having a baby (!) and gave away little things after she baby-proofed her home.

3. This is a photo of my friend/coworker. His last day is on Friday (he’s going to grad school) so I snagged it off his desk so I can still see him every day.

4. It’s a pin that says, “Happiness is a warm puppy”.  I bought it from a thrift store, it makes me smile :)

5. A photo of my little kitten, Walker <3

6. A piece of my mom’s artwork that she did in college. Unfortunately, artistic ability is not hereditary.

7. A Swedish wooden horse my grandparents brought back from their visit to Sweden.

8. As the office coordinator, people often come to me asking for candles when they have office parties, so I keep them at my desk.

9. I get migraines all the time! My mom sent me this holistic Migraine Tonic recently- hopefully it works! (fingers crossed)

10. Worry doll- I think this came off of a cupcake from an old office party. They remind me of my childhood.

11. Photo of Audrey Hepburn- She’s one of 11 women I have hanging above my desk as my eyebrow inspiration #dontjudgeme

12 . One of our first round discs for a store mix cd

13. This finger puppet needed a home, so I adopted it.

The worry doll is wicked so is the tonic drink. LOL

The fashion blogger and creative researcher here at Free People is a little pixie with amazing style. Using her sharp British eye she blends rich colors and details, and always knows how to style vintage pieces in a way that strays from dowdy. She’s one of those select few who can pull of a vintage floral-print jumpsuit and make it look modernly chic. She rocks the borrowed from the boy look with nostalgic touches of corduroy, elbow patches, and canvas – keeping her silhouette streamlined, but relaxed. A lot of her clothes she either makes herself or she’s picked up on a vintage store run. And then there are those pieces it seems that she is religiously attached to. You can almost bet she’ll have on her black lace-up walking boots and silver rings. They seem to go with everything she wears, always adapting to the spirit of each outfit.

There’s something so hot about denim. The laid back approach to style has always been a favorite of mine. It’s never over or under dressed, you look casual and cool, but fashionable and chic at the same time. Denim just never looks bad…

Check out how we’re styling it here at the home offices this week.

Layering perfection paired with a sheer black dress and Joe Lace Up Over the Knee Boots

Denim and stripes, a classic combo that never fails

How badass is the attitude of this vest?

This tough girl look is spot on in fashion right now. Just throw on some tights and ankle boots with those cutoffs, and you’re good to go!

The chambray button-down crochet – it goes so well with everything!

A few weeks ago I told you about a little installation we started in our lobby.  Well most of our objects have been hung by now and it’s so fun looking at them and trying to guess what belongs to who! Here’s a little peek at some of the things we love about our jobs :)

Day by day I’m so impressed by all of the amazing fashion I come across here at the office. Everywhere there are items that make you want to melt. The styling is so fresh. I find myself staring just taking in the aesthetic of it all.

She was a little camera shy, but I had to capture this necklace for you all. How amazing?!

Picture 008

I love how she knotted the dress and wore it with printed boots to give this look a laidback feel.

This crazy mix match of prints is so daring and perfect. I love how the prints have a funky feel yet the look remains retro and feminine overall.

How stylish is this pairing of the ruffle legging with chambray and booties?Picture 004

I love this dressed down look with the lacey layering skort for fall.

Joe -Oct 01, 2011, 7:04AM
The necklace is awesome. The knotted dress looks great!

This week’s style file is for all of you Lou’s out there who find inspiration in menswear. Believe it or not, there are a decent amount of men working around this office, and their fashion is just as much fun to observe as the ladies.

Our (fairly new) production assistant is one of the sharp men making a statement here. He has an eye for good fashion with tailored pieces, luxe sweaters, and vintage details. I love that he’s not afraid to wear a patterned sock, and how sharp does he look in those men’s high-water pants??  You can pretty much bet he’ll have a button-up shirt on, but the range of color, pattern, and fabric combinations in the outfit as a whole steer it away from ever getting boring. There’s a true refined quality to the way he dresses that takes a good eye to pull off.
