Post image for DIY: How To Diamond Smock Your T-Shirt

UPDATE: This previously ran on October the 30th but as we know everyone likes to update their basic tee every once in a while we wanted to bring it back.

Smocking has always been a craft that has intrigued me, I love how it creates more depth and volume in flat fabrics and the pattern is so pretty when finished. Read more »

This is a guest post by Beth Manos Brickey, of Tasty Yummies.

The time has come, at least where I live, when the local fresh produce has dwindled down to very little and we are hunkering down for a long and cold winter. Read more »

Love this post and have a question now related to it though. Is there a blog post on here regarding places to stay/eat/visit in Philly? I am planning a trip up there soon and would love to see a guide from FP!

Post image for December Moodboard: Wake Up And Shine

This December I’m craving a fresh, clean start… hints of pastel shades and florals are creeping back into my mind and I’m already longing for spring.  I love the crisp early morning silence, waking up to the rays of light filtering through my window, playing records and drinking coffee, the day ahead full of so much promise.

I'm glad I'm not the only night owl. My deepest desires to express and create seem to hit me in the late night, wee morning hours. I'm in love, and so inspired that I want to grab my camera now and take it to venture. http://www.paigelyse.blogspot.com http://paigeguthrie.see.me

Post image for Why We Love The Aark Wildlife Center

This is a guest post from Johnie of DirtbagDarling.com.

An injured fawn on the side of the road. A bird with a broken wing. A nest of baby rabbits your dog found. Chances are if you live in an even remotely suburban or rural area, you’ve encountered wildlife in need of some help. For your own safety and the health of the animal, it’s not a good idea to try and tend to it yourself—so what can you do? We visited the Aark Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, a Philadelphia area wildlife shelter, for their open house, where we talked with volunteers to find out the best way to take care of lost or injured wildlife and what we can do to support the centers nursing them back to health.

Post image for 3 Ways To Wear A Lace Maxi Skirt

UPDATE: This post previously ran on November the 14th but because we love this skirts so much, we wanted to bring it back.

Here at Free People we love statement maxi skirts, and when our Annie Oakley Lace Skirt came online it melted our hearts. We know that statement skirts can be quite overwhelming and can often be tricky items to style. Of course, if you’re going to invest in something you want to have multiple ways to wear it, right?

I bought this skirt after seeing it online, but it is quite a bit more peach than ivory. I have been struggling to find the perfect color to go with it. Denim is nice, but a little too much the cowgirl look. Does anyone know if there is a way to dye it more ivory? Or perhaps a washing technique that will help?
Caitlyn -Dec 11, 2012, 9:29PM
Very beautiful! The layered fabric of the lace skirt reminds me of designer called "Naturally Bohemian"...If you have never heard of her look her up, i know FP would LOVE her clothing!

I’ve always loved this quote…it reminds me of something my mom used to say. She used to tell us that when we were doing something, to make it hurt – to put in every ounce of effort we had, even if it hurt, because then you know you really gave it your all. Read more »

I love the way the outfit was put together and the different options given on how to put the outfit together with other things. this blog is similar to mine because both blogs are about the latest updated fashion. However, they are different because my blogs goes into further details on the different body types the clothing would be perferred on.

I absolutely love how effortless Free People looks are, but I agree with Lydia about how the proportions are made for taller people. maybe FP can have a petite section one day Cute video, gorgeous model, but not holiday themed - i guess it doesn't always have to be :)
Lydia -Dec 05, 2012, 2:09AM
I liked some of the stuff, but it didn't really match the season. Also, the styling seemed like you were trying WAYYY to hard to stress the whole "unique hippie" thing. Everyone on the blog always looks so effortless, so why don't I like the catalogue outfits? Also, I agree on the overpriced comment. On an unrelated note, I also am kind of upset that all of free people's clothes seem to be made for 5'7 coat hanger type girls. The clothes look great on the models, but if you're average height or below, you just get drounded out by the extra fabric and proportions made for "big" people.

I grew up lusting after Biba – Barbara Hulanicki’s fashion mecca in London’s swinging 60′s. The Rolling Stones hung out there, Twiggy modeled the clothes, and girls swooned after designs that Brigitte Bardot wore. Read more »
