Post image for Style File: Associate Buyer – Accessories

This week’s style file is our Associate Buyer for accessories, who traveled to the US from England to work at Free People. Her style is quirky and avant garde. It’s full of color and pattern – often with a theme like neon or turquoise. I love the risks she takes. There’s no fear, and nothing is too outrageous. It is, however, always inspiring.

Post image for New Free People Vegan Leather has Arrived!

I have a lot of Free People in my closet, but one of the best FP purchases I’ve ever made was hands down my vegan leather jacket. It looks like real leather (in fact, most people think it is), its comfy, fits well, goes with everything and is still in great shape, despite being worn quite frequently. I was thrilled to hear that we’d be continuing with vegan leather, and some new product just arrived on our site that is to die for! We’ve got something for every girl – a new hooded vegan leather jacket, a smocked vegan leather dress, new vegan leather shorts in a washed pink color, a vegan leather bustier, and old favorites like the pleated vegan leather skirt are back. Check out some styling inspiration from our store girls below, and then play it cool and check out the new vegan leather on our website!

From left: toughen up a slip with the washed vegan leather short and fedora; throw on the double breasted vegan leather jacket over the lace stripes maxi dress; wear the cap sleeve gypsy lace dress in cold weather with tights, a cami and the same vegan leather jacket in gray; try an unexpected pairing with an airy blouse and vegan leather shorts.

Forget the l.b.d. (for now) – this spring we love little white dresses like the fitted with daisies dress, paired with vegan leather jackets!

On my wishlist: the embellished vegan leather motorcycle jacket.

Such a cute look! Pair the high waisted textured short with tights, a cute tank and vegan leather jacket.

It looks awesome over a slip, like the delphine mesh skirt!

Super cute in the crochet short, stripe boy tee and vegan leather buttondown.

You can’t go wrong with the flock dot house slip, tights and embellished vegan leather motorcycle jacket!

And last but not least, stop traffic in the amazing vegan-leather trimmed cage shift dress, western buttondown and embellished vegan leather motorcycle jacket.

Post image for The Girl With 7 Horses

“Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginary horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fierce-full winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn’t weigh much). The girl was devastated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.”

I was so taken with this photography project by Ulrika Kestere, I had to share. Wonderfully creative and beautiful!

DO: Set a far reaching goal

To tell you the truth, I missed a few days of my “5 Sun Salutations a day for 30 days” challenge. Each time I missed a day, I ended up getting really down on myself. I felt like it was just one little goal that I couldn’t accomplish.

Eventually, I realized that I needed to let up on myself. It’s not the only goal I have set right now, I have a lot – probably too many.  I sat back and realized that I’ve still made improvements. I’m now doing yoga more than twice as often as I used to, and I feel the results.

The lesson I’ve learned is this: You’re human – sometimes you’ll set goals and fail in carrying them out completely. What matters is that you set a goal and that you tried. At the very least you’ll wind up some place in between where you were before, and what you set out to do. You can’t accomplish every grand goal immediately. What you can do, is at least set them and begin to work toward what you want instead of sitting there static.

So figure out something grand,amazing,far-reaching that you want and set a goal. Work on all of the things you want to work on, but don’t expect to see completion on all of them right away.You may not accomplish goals the first time around, but you’ll be much closer for even trying.

What a great set of photos! Cheers, Savannah everybodysbuyingvintage.blogspot.com
Erin -Jan 28, 2012, 3:16PM
This seriously touched me so much. I often fear setting goals because I am afraid to fail. Even though Im fully aware that many people fail a lot and I am not the only one to do so. I am growing older and in a few years I should be getting a real job in the real job and officially starting my adult life. I need to start setting REAL goals and work toward them and have faith in myself that I can do things I set my mind to! Thank you for your words. They seem to be exactly what I need to hear right now.

Post image for Walnut Street Wall

I took so many photos of this one wall in our Philly store, I felt like I needed to give it its own post.  There was so much to look at, it took my breath away.  Artwork, potted plants, memorabilia from around the world had my eyes darting back and forth, snapping away with my camera trying to capture it all. One of the coolest parts? Some of the artwork is actually for sale!

Post image for Free People Walnut Street Opening

Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia.  We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place.  If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!

The upstairs fitting room area is cozy and tranquil – I literally could live here. The fitting rooms were painted by five of our amazing fp girls, who made them truly special and unique.

I adore the brick wall and necklaces hanging from nails – I bought one of these zodiac necklaces – you can only find them in our stores! I also love the falling whistles.
