Post image for Cambridge Crafting Party Photo Diary!

Early Saturday morning I flew to Boston for our Holiday Crafting Party at Free People Cambridge. It was such an amazing day – we were blown away by the creativity of everyone who came to the event, and it was so great to just sit around a table, talking and crafting for a few hours! Here’s a photo diary of the day :)

It was an early flight…very early… but this sunrise made it ok.

Our Cambridge store is located at Harvard Square, a really cute little spot just outside Boston where Harvard University is located.

One of our crafters, Nicole, blew me away with her style and creativity! She made the following braided hat band, necklace and bracelet. And her rad printed jacket is actually a men’s shirt that she found in Africa – amazing.

Fall layering done well by Kerrin.

Get the look: oversized sweater, tights, slouchy socks, buckle boots, light jacket and chunky scarf. Piece of cake!

ornaments

So many amazing holiday ornaments were made!

One girl used the embroidery thread and tied a bunch of tiny bows that she glued to the inside of the ornament – soooo beautiful.

Wouldn’t it be a sweet gift to put a ring or something small inside a homemade ornament?!?

Post image for Style File: Associate Buyer

This week’s style file is our one of our adorable associate buyers. I was attracted toward her style because of its effortlessness. Emanating from her attitude and seeping into her style, she walks around exuding an aura that’s casual and full of happiness. It’s never over the top, but always perfectly put together and relaxed. From a rolled up cuff, to a stellar combination of delicate and funky jewelry, it’s evident that there’s a good eye at work here.

Picture 005

She’s a pro at rocking the Joe Lace Up Over the Knee Boot proving that there are so many ways to wear them and that they always look great.

These Karen Walker sunnies are so Audrey Hepburn.  The tortoise is amazing!

Post image for Free People Through the Decades: The 1950s

It was a cheerful time – the war was over, the bad guys were gone, and America truly was the world’s last best hope. Corn on the cob and apple pie. Drive-in movies and long summer nights. High school heroes and soda-fountain romance. And that exciting, exciting new music, coming up north from somewhere down south.

When I think of the 50s I think of a period of change.  I imagine a world of color emerging from black and white… young people opening up their eyes to new music, new fashion and new ideas that their parents would have shunned.  Icons like Marylin Monroe and Audrey Hepburn taught girls to embrace their individuality and personal style and bad boys like Marlon Brando and James Dean replaced the clean-cut ideal. It was a time of awakening and transition from the rigid 40s to the free-spirited 60s.

Pictured, clockwise from top left:
Drive-in Movie Theaters were a popular hangout in the 50s
