Post image for Free People Style Icons, Illustrated

This week, we pay homage to three of our favorite iconic figures in style and music: Janis, Patti, and Twiggy. These women share a timeless individuality, a spirit that doesn’t conform to what the norms of dressing or creating art SHOULD be. Through fearless self-expression, they paved way for generations past, present, and future… to tread with inspired minds and open hearts. Read more »

Post image for Step By Step: Moving Your Plants Indoors For Winter

Before “moving day,” decide where you are going to place each of the plants you will bring inside. It’s always challenging to find the best place for a particular plant, Taylor says. A guide to doing that, he advises, is to place plants that require full sun near south-facing windows and plants that only need partial sun in an east- or west-facing window. One other option he suggests homeowners consider is to use indoor plant lights, which, he adds, are a popular and affordable solution when you’re faced with less-than-ideal locations for houseplants.

Post image for About A Girl: Lana, Our Senior Store Manager

You all know this instance… when you meet someone for the first time, yet it feels like just yesterday the two of you were reminiscing on family and childhood fun. Yes, those that you’ve known for seconds are also subsequently the same person you’ve known for years.

Lana is one of these souls. Read more »

Post image for When Music Takes You Back

Have you ever had a time when your ears caught a piece of a song and immediately you’re swept away to an experience in your past? The time, the place, the faces… the sights, the smells, the feeling. Music has an incredible power to take us back; to allow our minds to revisit a deep memory that we may not have thought about in quite some time. I’ve always found this to be such a magical thing, and I was curious to discover the songs, bands, and experiences that are forever linked in the minds of others… so I turned to five girls right here in our home office.

I too love this experience. It can be a very bittersweet emotion when it overcomes you but i embrace it fully. I have so many songs that take me back. I cried at a Shins show once when James Mercer began singing New Slang because it brought me back. The strongest musical connection I have though is with Death Cab for Cutie's album "Plans". Any of those songs play and I'm mentally transported to my beat up '92 Nissan convertible with the top down and I'm driving too fast down the back roads on my way home from a night with my friends and the first boy who made me say "I love you". I was 16 and alive and free.

The one song that always takes me back to one of the best summers I've ever had, the summer of just having graduated high school, is the song 'Sea Legs' by The Shins. I was driving in my little, white Ford Ranger with the windows down to go see my boyfriend at the time. I was going over the bridge that connects my city to the next and as I was crossing over it, ‘Sea Legs’ started playing. It was perfect. I was wearing my favorite sundress, the sun was shining, and boats were sailing by, my hair long and blonde blowing in the wind. I can still feel the warmth of the summer heat and the sun's rays kissing my skin just thinking about it.

Post image for Local Gem: Soy Cafe

On a main street in Philly’s Northern Liberties neighborhood is a quiet café that has my heart: Soy Café. It’s one of those places where you walk in for the first time and immediately feel like you’ve been there before. Like the home of an old friend. It’s comfortable. Bursting with shape and color left and right, the décor is an eclectic mix of new and vintage furniture and wall art made by local artists. There’s a small area where you can buy little creations from local artists, as well – like pressed-flower cards and handmade jewelry. I love the idea of local businesses supporting other local businesses — so sweet. Read more »

Now is the perfect time to start preparing your house for fall festivities, and with Halloween just around the corner, we wanted to share a few alternative ideas for decorating pumpkins and gourds! Read more »

All great ideas!
Arlene -Oct 23, 2013, 1:11AM
All three are very nice. When I yarn wrap my pumpkins, I hot-glue the beginning of the yarn only, then tuck it under at the end. When I'm done using it for decoration, just unwind and the yarn lives to become another project. I am so happy to have discovered your blog!

Post image for Easy Beauty Trick: DIY Smudge Eyeliner

We love easy beauty tricks here at Free People, and today I’m sharing one that was introduced to me in my teenage years. In the girls’ bathroom at school one day, my friend whipped a lighter out of her back pocket. I freaked out for a quick second, but then I saw where this was going, and I was in total awe. She was making her own smudge eyeliner. Read more »

I just burn a stick mash it into a powder and apply it with a Q tip. Doesn't cost me a penny!
