Our catalog team traveled around the world…

…and us bloggers got to go to our shoot with Sasha Pivovarova in NYC – definitely a highlight of the year!

We worked with so many beautiful models…

We debuted FP Spun and Vegan Leather, and launched a special line of Limited Edition Dresses! We celebrated with pop-up shops in NY and LA, where Jade Castrinos performed at our store.

…and by trends like mod and grunge.

We brought you festival coverage from Pitchfork and Outside Lands

We shot our July catalog with Alexandra Valenti and the Happen-Ins, and we had such a great time we went back and threw a party to celebrate the catalog release! We also threw a party at our 5th ave store for Fashion’s Night Out and had a blast.

We made so many lovely blogger friends!

This herbal solution will help you achieve picture perfect hair once more. These use a number of techniques to move the natural oils down their hair such as boar bristle brushing and 'scritching' between washes. The doctors and the physicians must be experienced and trained in handling the laser instruments.

Post image for Get the look: Behati Prinsloo

The Iron Lady directed by Phyllida Lloyd premiered this week in New York City; a film that takes a look at the life of Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, with a focus on the price she paid for power.

Celebrities rocked the red carpet but one lovely lady in particular stood out – The beautiful model Behati Prinsloo created an immaculately cool Free People look that’s easily achievable yet attainably innate. We fell in love with her grunge but yet elegant look! Real style comes from within and she sure shows that.

Here’s how to get her look

 

The items: floral shirt tail pucker dress, sheer stripe pullover, cropped biker jacket, vegan 3 eye gibson shoe, perfume amulette necklace

jill -Dec 30, 2011, 11:06PM
i love behati! such a cute look

Post image for Office Style

It’s been really slow around the office this past week. A lot of employees are off on vacation, surely enjoying a nice local or some quality time with friends and family. Those of us who stuck around for the holidays are feeling a bit wacky from all the emptiness. Headphones are on, and there’s a muted quietness everywhere. Everything just seems a bit off and quirky.

Post image for Vintage Coco Chanel

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

~Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was a pioneer when it came to elegance and sophisticated French fashion.She gave women that breathtaking allure with her attention to simplicity and her trademark Little Black Dress, which has become a staple. Chanel has made an impact on my life and Karl Lagerfeld has continued to do so, one of my favorite shows to date is the Fall 2011 runway show. So when our vintage buyer sourced some rare Coco Chanel vintage jewelry, I was a little bit taken aback. They sure do dazzle with elegance!

I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

Post image for Thursday Poll: Volume and Print

The Free People girl is not one to shy away from a statement. She’s bold, she takes up a lot of room, and she’s not afraid of color. She likes to push the limits, and that’s exactly why we have the most amazing collection of printed voluminous pants on the site right now. These pieces flip the rules on their head, and draw attention to the bottom half of an outfit. A few, with their flower child bohemian vibe, live in the Nouveau Boho trend while others are funky and psychedelic. We’re loving the can’t-miss-it look. Which statement, printed bottoms do you like best? Read more »

The last pant the slouch pant seems to me that the 80's are back and they just look to me like they shrunk. The bell bottoms 70's were way cooler time of fashion and the collate pant reminds me of Thai pants but with a twist. All look super comfy and a nice switch from the usual.

I really like all of them besides tiki pant.

“In this modern age everything, everywhere seems to lead the senses outward and away from oneself.  Don’t be afraid of quiet. Find the time for peace and introversion, and life will have new meaning.”

 ~ “The way of Tea” by Aaron Fisher

This Holiday I spent some quality time with my family.  They flew here from Wales and brought with them a new light; I took a step back and soaked in some quiet – we  took peaceful walks  around New York where my eyes were wide open looking for unexpected beauty. And, we snuggled on the sofa with our tummies full of hearty foods until we drifted asleep. Christmas goes way too fast, don’t you think? But hey, another celebration is soon to come, New Years Eve and then a brand new year to look forward too!

Post image for Braid Tutorial with Dennis Lanni and Noot Seear

I have a special treat for you today! The amazing Dennis Lanni, who has done the hair for a number of our catalogs (including May and July, pictured above), demonstrates how to do one of his favorite braid styles on model Noot Seear. Hope you like!

jenny -Jun 10, 2014, 1:12PM
I'm I the only one that's totally lost? When he "turns" or "twists" the braid around, is he simply turning it, or is he flipping it over and turning it. Help:(

I’ve been meaning to write about this album for a couple of weeks now – it’s pretty much been on repeat since I first listened to it. The Year of Hibernation is the debut album from Youth Lagoon, aka Trevor Powers (a former urban employee!) who has seen incredible success from the LP, which he recorded in his bedroom.  Read more »

Best gift? My dad saw here on the blog that I wanted a vintage camera strap, so he gave me his old one that he has had for years :)

Also really loving this book of photography by Linda McCartney – it begins with her life as a rock photojournalist who was house photographer at the Fillmore East and photographed legends like the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Doors, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, before meeting and falling in love with Paul McCartney.  Paging through the book is literally like a glimpse into her life as she saw it through her camera lens – really beautiful.

What was the best part of your holiday this year? I’d love to hear about it :)

You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am taking a look ahead to your next submit, I will try to get the dangle of it!
Sarah -Jan 28, 2013, 5:29PM
Your blog is absolutely amazing! I would love to see some cigar post on here because I am an avid follower!
