It's so inspiring ! I have my final exam for being a fashion designer in two months ! I hope I can be able to work in an office like this one, so motivating, in an atmosphere like that... I'm searching for an internship to end my diploma, do you think I can try to apply in FreePeople? :)

Post image for A Day In The Life Of Our Buyers

I followed our buyers around a for a few days in LA while they were on a research trip. They work fast with a good eye and know exactly what to seek out. We met in the morning around 8am in the Chamberlain West Holiday Hotel and then headed out to our destinations; vintage warehouses, vintage stores, high end boutiques, and cool concept stores to get inspired.

I just fell in love with her pieces! I totally agree with her with ignoring the whole "Beauty is Pain" thing. So not true! I'm saving my pennies to buy one of her pieces :)

Post image for Restricted Diets: Focus On What You CAN Eat, Not What You Can’t

We are thrilled to welcome back Beth of Tasty Yummies for a new series about restricted diets and how to make the most out of what you eat!Read More

I want to sincerely thank you so much for this post! I am currently working on my own health and wellness blog, but keep getting stuck on food. I want to enjoy the food that I eat, but a lot of the recipes I've found are bland and leave me craving for the junk food that I'm used to. I think if I can branch out with my food choices and be patient to find ones that I enjoy that the whole process will get much easier.

I recently found out I have a tomato allergy. I didn't always have it, and tomato sauce used to be my FAVORITE food in the ENTIRE world! *sobs* It's a pretty uncommon allergy, and I dread Mexican restaurants for this reason. Luckily it is not life-threatening and it is more like an intolerance, so I don't have to worry about cross contamination, but tomatoes give me digestive problems. :-( I have been trying to find different ways to eat pasta as I am also intolerant to dairy. I'm getting tired of pesto. I find many types of ravioli are delicious simply drizzled with olive oil. But as for plain pasta, olive oil isn't enough. I found a butternut squash jar sauce and got really excited, but it was BLENDED WITH TOMATOES. I am still hoping my tomato allergy will disappear one day. My mom was allergic to shrimp in her 20's but is not allergic anymore.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
Yasmine -Mar 29, 2013, 12:48AM
The belt in the first photo looks very Afghan inspired. Is it?

Post image for Happy Holi!

Happy Holi everyone! Holi is a festival of color that is celebrated by Hindus every spring. The festival has many meanings, the first of which is a celebration of the beginning of spring – it is an explosion of color and official farewell to winter; a celebration of good over evil. Read More

I"m lucky enough to be in India studying with my teachers now and was here for the long Holi celebration. It's amazing! Everyone is so happy and the divisions between the cast systems relax. My whole head and shoulders were covered in the brightest pink, green, yellow, and blue I've ever seen! You can give money to the kids if you don't want to be covered in holi powder, which the the way to go after one round of washing your holi laundry!
Aasia -Apr 06, 2013, 2:15PM
...its called Gulal, the holi powder. You can make some herbal, chemical free Gulal at home using basic turmeric powder mixed with double quantity of gram flour(to get yellow color), and gram flour(besan) are brilliant beauty masks as well.

Post image for DIY Painted Feathers

I’ve always loved the idea of painting fake feathers, and with festival season underway it seemed like the perfect time to do it.  I originally thought of these purely as decorations but then it occurred to me that they’d be a great finishing touch for a festival outfit. Read More

Post image for An Inspired Farmer’s Daughter Look

Our trend this week, Farmer’s Daughter, brings to light the perfect spring fashion, from lightweight overalls, to washed wovens, and whimsical chiffon dresses. It brings in a breath of fresh air and makes us crave life in the country. Chambray shirts dress down dresses, prints tease with rugged boots, and overalls look desirable layered with blouses and accessories.

Post image for Sandal Season Is Near!

It is officially spring, but as I type this post, I won’t lie…it is snowing in Philadelphia. However, sandal season is just around the corner (or maybe already here for some of you!) and I for one can’t wait to put away my shoes and socks.Read More

TAMMY -Apr 10, 2013, 12:16PM
Finally warm enough here in New York. Love wearing my flip-flops, t-strap sandals and high heel sandals all summer long. Sandal Season for me is from mid April to mid to late October. For winter I am stuck wearing my sneakers everywhere. For me as soon as its 45F I am ready for open toe shoes. I don't care about winter boot/ugg fashion. My shoe closet consists of mostly sneakers, flip-flops, T-Strap Sandals and mid to high heel sandals. I have only one pair closed toe heel (confining) and one pair of high heel boots for special occasions in winter like for New Years or wedding. I have been getting my feet sandal ready since right after St Patrick's Day.

For the past few weeks I’ve had one album pretty steadily on repeat: Isles by Wild Belle.  If you haven’t heard this album yet, listen to it now! It is amazing, upbeat, reggae-tinged indie pop that will make your ears so incredibly happy.Read More
