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 »
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.
We were so excited about the arrival of our new vegan leather items, that we decided to each pick our favorite and show you guys how we’d style it!

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.
You can find the neon bracelets in our stores!

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.
Get the look with our Heavy Knit Pieced Sweater in Mayan Blue.
The skull bracelet is available in FP stores!
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.
On my wishlist: the embellished vegan leather motorcycle jacket.
How freaking cool is the vegan leather bustier?!?
It looks awesome over a slip, like the delphine mesh skirt!
