in the time i spend searching the web, i find a lot of really amazing artwork… but every once in a while i stumble upon an artist who really blows me away. this is one of them. i am completely in love with eibatova karina‘s work… not only are the images beautiful and exquisitely detailed, but the messages behind her work make it even more meaningful to me. plus i’m a sucker for pretty much anything that has to do with john lennon…
the last two are from a series called “trees make us feel better.” they really do make me feel happy! view more of her work here.
we had a bbq here at the navy yard yesterday to celebrate the end of construction around the dry dock next to our building. it looks so beautiful, they did an amazing job – and the party was awesome. a live band playing country-tinged covers of classic songs, mini golf, tons of great food, and beautiful weather :)
our stylists have amazing taste (obviously!) so today i asked them to give their top picks for this fall – and they even modeled them for me! first up, our senior stylist:
“i feel really good about wide leg pants and looser styles going into fall. i’d describe it as victorian mixed with 70s on safari! the coat has a victorian silhouette that looks amazing on any body type because it creates a waist. you can wear it so many different ways, too- belted, open like a cardigan, over a maxi, or with wide leg pants. and the colors go with everything! i also love the expedition hat and large bags like this that fit everything you would need in case you do actually go on a safari :)”
“i love the long sleeve lace buttondown tunic- it is so versatile! it’s a great piece for layering so you can keep wearing summery items like a printed mini into fall, and the print shows through the lace which is really cute. just add a cozy cardigan, over-the-knee boots with socks, and a beanie! this leather jacket is AMAZING. it is lined in satin and has a detachable hoodie and has that perfect beaten up quality to it.”
it’s almost that time of year… to wear thermals!! i can’t get enough of our thermals, they are the BEST. i love these four styles so much i can’t decide which one to get for this season. which one do you guys like best?
My sister has moved from England to join me here at Free People and I thought I would do a little office style on her. It’s great when you have a sister who is the same size as you and has a similar style to you too. We can borrow and swap clothes until our hearts are content.
It’s great having her here and its lovely having someone who shares the same visual eye as mine.
