I'd never have been able to wear any of the above when I was working in the city ! The clothes look great though.

Somehow not as glamorous as the catalog, but cozy none the less!

winter strikes again… a little over a foot fell in the city and i went for a little walk this morning and took some photos before beginning the trek down to the navy yard.  i actually love the brief period of time after a large snowfall when everything is blanketed in white and the snow muffles the usual sounds of the city, creating a peaceful lull.  people even seem to say hi on the street more often, offering a warm smile of commiseration for others out shoveling or trudging through snow up to their knees.

but don’t get me wrong, i am more than ready for spring! enough of this nonsense :)

Monica -Jan 29, 2011, 4:34PM
Beautiful photos and a beautifully worded discription of the bliss that snow can bring to a city. Makes me miss my days in New York City! ...but you can't beat the California sun... try and stay warm!
Eva @ Four Leaf Clover -Jan 27, 2011, 8:38PM
Lovely! Thanks so much for sharing. That snow covered Vespa made me happy and sad all in one.

Post image for outside the box

after jemma posted about our extreme series oversized and boxy tees the other day i went and checked out the shop online and started thinking about how i’d wear some of these items. like she said, i also tend to over-size it when i buy shirts because i like them a little baggier – so these extreme tees are right up my alley!  we had a little fun today trying some outfits on, and with the color scheme of the items we picked, the bamboo forest at the end of the hall beckoned to us…

you guys have probably heard of erica domesek of the blog p.s. – i made this… by now – she’s a DIY genius. i love how she can make a project i’d never even think of seem so easy and do-able.  for example, this feather headpiece – with spring and festival season creeping up on us it definitely has the wheels in my head turning, thinking of fun headpieces i can make and wear all summer long.

p.s. i made this…

Post image for at home with our graphic designer

lizzy janssen is an amazing artist, has great style, and is just an awesome person- so its no surprise that her home (in fishtown, philadelphia) is a reflection of all those things. lizzy describes it as somewhere in the early american, meets 1950′s housewife, meets mid-century modern neighborhood :) another fun fact – it was designed by our creative director, who lives here!

i’m completely in love with her place…the exposed brick, the spiral staircase, the amazing bathroom and her adorable cat arlo in the above picture (named after arlo guthrie).

1

most of the stuff lizzy has decorated her place with – the furniture, paintings and figurines – was found at thrift stores, garage sales, and sometimes even on the curb! her favorite thrift stores in philly are germantown thrift and three potato four, in manayunk.

here’s a quick little interview with lizzy, and check out more photos of her sweet place in the slideshow below!

Thanks so much for sharing this! I have been looking up spiral staircase prices and was wondering where you got yours from? I am building a new house and I think that something similar in style would look really good!
Lindsey Nichols -Feb 24, 2011, 3:35AM
Being a graphic designer myself, and Loving ALL things old and vintage.. this post is not only inspiring but just a breathe of fresh air to see :). Sometimes I think that all people forget about the good things in life, like s local thrift store or estate sale... its where all the real treasures are found :)! Great post free people, i love you blog and only could dream to work for you some day. Your Graphic Designer has a sick place ps!!!! xoxo, Lindsey Nichols http://be.net/lindseykaynichols

what do you guys think of this year’s coachella lineup? i think its pretty solid – even though i’ve never been to coachella they always do a great job just getting such a large variety of artists.  even if you don’t like the headliners, you’re sure to find several smaller bands more than worth seeing. here’s a little playlist of some of the bands i’d like to see if i was going (one of them is twin shadow, who we just featured in our january catalog video!).

are any of you planning on going? who are you most excited to see??

I think they enjoyed this festival very well. They're also giving away a copy of their single 'Botanist' for free here.

I would love to see Tame Impala, their music is so entrancing!

Post image for model off duty

our creative design assistant snapped a couple pics of model sasha pivovarova when she arrived for our catalog shoot on thursday… she looks effortlessly cool in leather pants, black shoes, tank and messy braid – and the tiger on her shirt was definitely appropriate!

i snapped this photo of her bracelets and rings on the makeup table – i love that she just wears a couple of friendship bracelets!

IMG_2535

and jemma took this photo when she arrived on day two, looking nice and cozy for the cold day in nyc!

i know you guys want to see more of the april catalog but you’re going to have to wait a little bit! don’t worry though because i’ll have a sneak peek of our february book soon (maybe next week!) and it is amazing :)

Post image for Extreme series part one: Boxy Shapes

I have always been a fan of the oversized look. I usually opt for the two sizes bigger idea when it comes to buying tops  -  I like the way they fall and how much freedom I have to play around with different silhouettes.

Lately bloggers have been catching my eye and the ways they have been styling these extreme XL ideas.

I love this look with maxi skirts with a small section of the top tucked in to give a draping effect or just worn loose to give that relaxed and comfortable feel.

It’s quite a bold idea… how do you guys feel about this look???

Photos taken from Dora’s fur, Am lul closets and Free People’s extreme series shop

Kate -Jan 25, 2011, 7:24PM
I love it. Even when an item is meant to have a loose fit, I always go for the largest size possible.
Dee -Jan 25, 2011, 5:35PM
I can't remember the last time I wore something fitted. I love the oversize look. Not only is it comfortable but you're right; you can play around with so many types of silhouettes. This makes it such a great trend for any fashion forward girl!

Post image for shiela’s story

today’s fan story is from sheila from portland OR, a student and artist who sent in some of her recent work.  she wrote that she loves fiber art and is always inspired by the materials that free people uses, and has incorporated some tears from  fp catalogs into her work.

i love how personal her work is, some of it containing little sentences or phrases that are like a peek into her diary.  awesome stuff, thanks for sharing shiela! you can check out more of her work here.

and don’t forget to keep the stories coming to blog@freepeople.com!

her art work is truly magical.. what an inspiration! thank you for sharing! loving your blog <3 xoxo
Steamboat Navetta -Jan 25, 2011, 10:00PM
I go to school with Sheila, have watched her create some of these works, and have critiqued them. The top right image is literally the most beautiful drawing ever created by a single person, you can't see from the picture, but it is large-scale and on transparent mylar. I am sad, because what you don't get with the images is the explanations of the driving concepts, and her thought process while working on the pieces. Sheila is too good, buy her art, all of it, now!go!
