Top Pick: Embellished Vegan Leather Motorcycle Jacket

Pictured with: The Destroyer Tee and the Neon Tide Layering Necklace which hits the site next week!

I’ve had my eye on this jacket for a while now. I remember when I first sent it to a shoot forever ago. I hadn’t even seen it yet, but the merchandisers suggested it for the shoot, and the instant it got delivered to my desk I knew this was a rare and awesome piece. You can never go wrong with a leather jacket, and with this one, the detailing is just amazing! It’s tough yet boho and ethnic – the perfect throw on for any outfit.

I always love the attitude that leather brings to your look, it gives that certain edge that has some kind of sex appeal about it.

Vegan leather gives you the same effect but gives you a peaceful mind too. My vegan leather pick is the smocked vegan leather dress; it’s sexy with a deep V but the smocking gives it that cute edge and that’s exactly how I like to dress. I’ve teamed it with a printed kimono and some studded loafers (look for this pair online next week!) to give it some extra jazz!

I already own a vegan leather jacket, so my current top pick is the vegan leather bustier.  It’s so edgy and cool – I love the stitching detail. I think it would look pretty rad over the cropped striped pullover with high waisted jeans in cooler weather, and in spring/summer I’d wear it all the time under loose tops like the desert dream tank.

Pictured with the chelsea beaded bracelet – necklace and tank coming next week!

Check out our vegan leather collection and let me know – which piece is your favorite?

Nice design, visit olgaroad.com as they feature a belted front, zippered pockets and sleeves, asymmetric zipper, and some serious attitude!

That jacket is probably the most perfect jacket ever, the studs and embroidering make it, and that bustier… I have some major vegan leather lusting right now!

Post image for Details: Quirky & Cool

I love quirky little details… today I kept noticing little things that made an outfit unique, like a little bit of leather on a denim shirt, pairing a vintage tee with a sequin vest, adding suspenders to the basic denim and tee, statement collar necklaces, striped denim and leopard, neon bracelets – you name it, our FP girls are rocking it.

Post image for Tunesday: Getting to know Twin Sister!

Sunday the 22nd of January we went to Johnny Brenda’s – a charismatic bar, restaurant and music venue that has a strong presence mainly to do with the amount of awesome bands that sail through there, one being Twin Sister who we managed to catch up with while they sound checked and nibbled on Whiskey doughnuts.

Post image for We love Paris Couture!

Whenever Paris Couture starts running I get giddy over fashion and the excitement of fashion weeks starts running through me. Paris Couture is what fashion dreams are made of, a traditional love and lure for craftsmanship and fine details, it’s fashion design at its very best and you can’t help but show true respect for it. The level of workmanship from the ateliers is especially inspiring. From Karl Lagerfeld’s tribute to shades of blue for Chanel, Valentino’s key to the eighteenth century’s Age of Enlightenment and “real” values to Elie Saab’s easy to digest rainbow of shiny, beautiful pink, peach, yellow, mint green and baby blue gowns.

Paris Couture shows true love to fashion “Fashion needs culture or it becomes empty” said Pier Paolo Piccioli and that’s so true. Now I’m looking forward to the ready to wear shows to begin 9 days and counting!

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.

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!
