Post image for Two British Meals I Adore

Britain is known for its hearty/comfort meals; food that is filling and has been carried through the centuries. You could call them unfussy dishes, made with quality local produce matched with simple sauces. Read more »

Post image for Office Style: Americans vs. The British

At our home office we have a lot of English girls working here, and on a weekly basis I love comparing the style of both the British and the Americans and take note of how they are different. Read more »

I completely disagree. British style isn't clean or neat, it's edgy. Us Brits like to take risks with what we wear. Have you ever been in Vivienne Westwood? We have more of a rough edge, we can't look too 'done' or too 'neat'. I don't think you've done enough research because you've got it all wrong!

I would disagree with this. I am British and live in London, an to be honest i'd have to say its the individual, I personally hate wearing jeans, I love dresses with floral prints, with a denim shirt over the top, sorry x

Post image for Sweet Romance: What To Wear On Date Night

Going to a wedding this past weekend reminded me of how much fun it is to get dressed up every once in a while. Who doesn’t love letting loose and dancing the night away in a special dress with someone you love? Read more »

I love these ideas, so elegant and classy. And for se earlier comments, I think these would be great date ideas. I thinking keeping your body a mystery can sometimes be the most sexy, more than showing skin. Go old school fashion!

I love the top and bottom dresses. They look so pretty and romantic and would make a great non traditional wedding dresses for a low key boho chic beach wedding.

Post image for How To Create A Romantic Atmosphere In Your Home

One of my favorite places to be is inside a romantic-feeling home. You feel light, free, and pretty – and most importantly, happy. It’s hard to believe that décor can have the ability to do that, but it totally does. Read more »

Post image for DIY: Update Your Tired Toms With Color Blocking

Toms are the type of shoe that are so easy to throw on and go that they tend to get pretty worn out.  Mine just reached the point where they had a hole in the toe, so I decided it was time to give them a little makeover – simultaneously fixing the hole and giving them a whole new look.  Read more »

Post image for Fashion Dictionary: British Fashion Terms You Need To Know!

With the launch of our new UK microsite (and ecommerce coming this fall!), we started thinking. There is a verbal fashion gap when it comes to the names of certain key clothing items. Something you’ve worn your whole life might go by a completely different name across the pond, and we want to make sure that nothing gets lost in translation. Read more »

cool
Ellie -Sep 18, 2012, 12:12PM
Never heard the term kirby grips before... Also, isn't a snood a hair net for beards? o_O Liz was right about everything (especially 'slacks'), except for the 'pants' issue. Yes pants is underwear, but not just for boys - girl pants are pants too! I hear the word pants used for girls' underwear more than knickers... Ok, some people say 'panties', but I have a personal hatred of that word...

Post image for The Free People Book Club Is Back!

I know it has been a while, but I’m very excited to announce that we are bringing back the Free People book club! We have selected The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, which I am very excited about because it has been so long since I’ve read it that I don’t really remember it very well and have been wanting to read it again. The Alchemist is a story of adventure and dreams, about the importance of listening to your heart and living with purpose. Read along with us and check back for posts on the book and inspiring quotes and passages each Tuesday during the month of September.

“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky. “Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”

Wow... I'm just a touch late to the book party. However, given the good non-linear nature of the Internet, there's no reason I can't start reading and checking the later posts :) This has been on my 'to read' post longer than most books, so I think I will finally get started. Love the whole concept of the Free People Book Club! Thank you for the inspiration.
Catherine Peshek -Oct 25, 2012, 10:31PM
I am completely wowed. I have checked up on your blog every month or so since my yearbook teacher showed me it for design inspiration a year ago and I was just reading through and saw the alchemist...my favorite cousin introduced me to it 5 years ago while on a beach vacation trip and it immediately changed my life. I told everyone about it wherever I went and what is even more amazing is that I circled that very same quote and wrote it EVERYWHERE for years but forgot about it until now and I literally started crying when I just reread it.. Thank you so much for this post and reintroducing me to my favorite part of my life so far......I absolutely love this site! I dream of designing for something as incredible as free people one day.
