I have been so excited to share our February catalog sneak peek, featuring one of my favorite models – Freja Beha Erichsen! She brings an amazing edgy attitude to our tomboy Lou styles and looks beyond gorgeous showing a softer Candy and Meadow side as well. The catalog was shot by Joshua Allen and drops next week – here’s a little preview!
I have been into really thin rings in a big way lately – I keep spotting them on blogs and tumblr, and I love how delicate they look. Rumi rocks two little gold bands in the left photo, and on the right are a set of three that my dad gave me for Christmas (it’s crazy – he has the best taste in jewelry). Read more »
The other day I hung out in the studio for a bit while our team did a specialValentine’s Day shoot with model Linda Vojtova. It was such a fun shoot with candy and flower props, and Linda was kind enough to answer a few questions for the blog! Read more »
It definitely doesn’t feel like the first day of February here in Philly… it’s supposed to be almost 65 degrees out today! But hey, I’ll take it. And, there’s a February 29th this year! Click here to download our February calendar in the horizontal or vertical version.

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.

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

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!
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.
