Post image for A Love For London – From American & British Points Of View

London can have different impacts and hold different feelings for different people. I went around the office and asked a British person and an American person what London means to them, but first here’s what comes flowing back to me when the word “London” is spoken.

I love this article, almost as much as I love London! It completely sums it up for me, so many different people in one place who are literally in love with the place they inhabit, I love the people on the tube who say bless you when you sneeze, I love the trees on every street that blossom in the spring, I love the music scene and the fact you can go out without a plan and have the best night of your life, I love the fact you always meet someone new and exciting, and I mean always, I can't remember a night where I went out in London and didn't end up at least having a random conversation with a stranger, let alone making a new friend, I love the coincidences, for a city of 10 million you would expect not to bump into long lost school friends quite as often as you do, I love the history, and the sunsets, and the pidgeons, and the ridiculous mayor, the free newspapers and the talkative vendors, the multifaceted multicultural face of London is a smiling open beautiful sight. One pet peeve, you talk about the coffee houses of the 19th century when referring to the Troubadour (which incidentally is also another spot of London I adore), I think you mean the 20th century as it was started in 1954 in the 20th century and the same for Jack the ripper of the 1870s, the 19th century. Sorry, I'm a historian and it bugged me.

I see all sorts of crazy goings on when I wander the city streets, in and out of shops and I think 'yep. This is London'. It's a really strange feeling but I fee so complete and at ease in London. Is it possible to actually be in love with a city? Because I think I am.

I really like the 1st look, but whenever I try to do it it doesn't come out quite right. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it by winter. I'm determined to.

We’re not sure what we love more. The video for our September catalogue, or the fact that you can actually shop it. September is full of good news for us, as you can see by the video above we’ve got England on our minds in a major way. Today marks the launch of Free People UK, and make sure to pay close attention to the “Spot The It Girl” contest we’re running, too. One lucky UK resident will win one year of Free People clothing! In the meantime, watch the video above and see our September catalogue in (paparazzi-crazed) action.

That looks like Martha Hunt!!! Great video love the collection.

Only a UK resident? Boo.

Brigette, Jemma, and Julia sat down to answer a few questions about themselves and things they love, and once you read them you’ll have even more insight into what makes our bloggers the people they are. Plus, I love conversations that go beyond small talk to find out really cool, intimate details about individuals you admire, the things that set them apart from others.

Post image for Monday Quote: Experience Uncertainty

“When you experience uncertainty, you are on the right path – so don’t give it up. You don’t need to have a complete and rigid idea of what you’ll be doing next week or next year, because if you have a very clear idea of what’s going to happen and you get rigidly attached to it, then you shut out the whole range of possibilities.”
