Post image for Trend: Snow Angel

When I think of a snow angel I think of a soft wanderer, she walks quietly and oozes curiosity.
Our Snow Angel trend derived from all things soft and pretty, beautiful cozy textures hang softly
while pastels shades capture the nostalgic feeling of a dream like world. Snow Angel is about comfort,
comfort in the most beautiful light.

Post image for Catalog Behind the Scenes: Morocco in the 1970s

There’s something surreal about these behind the scenes photos from our holiday catalog shoot in Morocco.  The lighting, the colors, the vast open landscape, it almost seems like a different planet… where our team became desert warriors on a mission to shoot a beautiful catalog.

Post image for Braving the Elements

Sometimes, as winter blankets our surroundings with its bitter chill, it’s tough to stay fashionably motivated. Rising out of bed in the morning involves a laborious upheaval from an all-too-comfortable toasty nest. The last thing you want to do is spend time, half-naked in a drafty bedroom, pulling an outfit together. It tends to turn into, “grab the first items in your drawer, and pile them on as fast as you can.”

To dress well as the air gets chillier though, we’ve come to realize that the under layer becomes less important. To pull off a great look that won’t leave you freezing, it’s all about that top winter layer. Here, some of the Free People girls show us how to move into the new season while keeping it fresh with a few of our favorite jackets. They remind us that a good scarf and hat can go a long way to trap in heat, and, don’t forget, the season’s must-have item – a pair of killer close-toed boots. All of these things – jacket, boots, and winter accessories – will help you bring those easy under layers into the new season.

So chill and relaxed! Our sweater designer is wearing: The Vintage Wine Leather Jacket, Pink Floyd Tee, Joan of Arctic Boot, Loop Knit Beanie, Crystal Honeycomb Bib necklace, and her own pants.

Oh yes, the jacket is reversible! This look on our New Romantics Design Assistant is perfect for heading out to a holiday party. She’s wearing: Ana’s Beaded Party Dress, FP One Reversible Fur Parka, Jonesy Heeled Hiker boots, and an old Free People necklace much like this one.

Edit018

Edit023

Our Visual Merchandiser is the master of layering and quirky details. She’s wearing: The Royal Blue PeacoatFP Skinny Cords, Lacy Layering Top, cropped tank like this one, La Bourse Plaid Button-Down, Northern Lights Boots, and the Regal Stone Necklace.

FP Julia is rocking an Americana look in our: IRO Denim Sherpa Jacket, Tory Fringe Boot, and upcoming American Flag Scarf.

Looking rock-n-roll ready, our Sample Coordinator is wearing: the Embellished Leather Jacket, Fishnet Long Sleeve Top, FP High Waisted Textured Shorts, London Opaque Tights, Vegan Docs, and the Eclipse Necklace.

Post image for DIY Holiday Ornaments turned Accessories

Have you guys seen our beautiful collection of holiday ornaments? We have chosen some of our favorite jewelry designers to collaborate with, interpreting their aesthetic and materials into ornaments that can be hung on a tree! The ornaments are lovely, and the best part is – all of them can be turned into accessories that you can wear and enjoy all year round :) Our team helped put together some awesome tutorials on how to do this – first, we’ll show you how to turn the ornaments into earrings or necklaces!

DIY ornaments turned into earrings

What you need:

A pair of pliers and two earring hooks – you can find these online at places like amazon or at your local craft store.

We used the Zodiac Coin Ornament – I love that these have little fortunes on the back :)

diy-earring

Using your pliers, remove the large hook that comes on the ornament.

diy-earring

Replace the large hooks with the earring hooks, using the pliers to pinch them shut.

diy-earring

You now have a new pair of earrings :) It would be really cute to mix your own zodiac sign on one ear and a loved one or best friend’s sign on the other!

DIY ornaments turned into necklaces

diy-necklace

This one is really simple – all you need is a chain of your choosing, and, depending on which ornament you use, you might need the pliers.

We used the Crystal Claw Ornament:

diy-necklace

diy-necklace4

Remove the ribbon the ornament comes with.

diy-necklace

And add the chain! Easy peasy.

These ornaments would make great earrings OR necklaces:

Dalila Turquoise Ornament

Post image for Tunesday: Phantogram

Back in August, I was at Outside Lands in San Francisco handing out Free People bags and fliers in Golden Gate Park when I heard the mesmerizing sound of Phantogram‘s music creeping up on me from a nearby stage. My ears perked up and didn’t stop listening until the band left the stage. Read more »

Post image for From Our Store Girls: The Perfect Gifts

It’s the season for giving gifts, and we just launched our Holiday Boutiques last week full of great gift ideas. It can be a little overwhelming when it comes to picking out the perfect present, so we decided to ask our store ladies across the country what would be on their wishlist this year!

Haley, Farmington CT: Socks!

“I just bought both colors of the broken arrow soft socks! And i know once my sisters see them they’ll want them too, so I think they are the perfect gift/stocking stuffer!”

(I have to agree, I am wearing these socks today and they are the BEST.)

Brandi, Shrewsbury NJ: Bralettes

“Our bralettes are the best FP gift for the holiday season – they are the perfect add-on to any outfit for a pop of print or a dash of sparkle!”

tysons

Brooke, Tyson’s Corner VA: Multi Stripe Pullover, Lace Buttondown, Feather Hair Clip

“I love the idea of these three pieces as a gift together – each item is really unique and versatile or can be worn on its own; the pullover sweater with a pair of denim shorts and tights, the lace buttondown with a beautiful black skirt and the feather clip on any day of the week. But the beautiful thing is that if someone wanted to put a look together as a gift all of these items would look amazing put together.”

atlanta

Raven, Atlanta GA: The Ruffle Legging

“The ruffle leggings are fun, funky and sexy! I think every lady should rock a pair of these.”

oregon

Morgan, Portland OR: Stockings for your stockings!

Socks are a great way to help your loved ones stay cozy this holiday season! Socks are one of life’s often over-looked luxuries that many don’t often splurge on for themselves.  Such an easy way to feel pampered and spoiled! Plus, sizing is usually not an issue :) ”

socal3

socal1

Niree, Hollywood CA:

“In the top photo I’m wearing our Faux Sheepskin Earmuffs and gloves – they are the best stocking stuffers and make great gifts, especially as it gets colder!

The second photo are my top gift giving picks! They include the Voile and Lace Slip, Floral Kimono, the MUST HAVE Miles of Lace Dress, the amazing Crafty Cuff Thermal in mustard, Legwarmers, Feather Hair Clips, the Chain Double Wrap Belt and an amazing Scarf. You can’t go wrong with any of these items!!!”

For more great gift ideas check out our new section online of our favorite items, handpicked by fp girls :)
