We love loafers and the cozy eagle fairisle tunic

…and floral button up shirts…


…and doc martens!


pretty little details…


Great layering basics: the peter pan lace top (looks great on its own or under other tops and dresses!), the super-comfy laguna coast pullover, model Pania Rose in her favorite, the crafty cuff thermal, and the awesome Pink Floyd tee.


Cute glasses and hair :)


The embroidered midtown jacket looks so cool with a plaid shirt and slouchy jeans!

Post image for Office Style: American vs. British

In line with our catalog theme this month, I thought I would do some fun vs. themed office styles. Our home office has a surprisingly bountiful population of Brits who’ve crossed the big pond to work for Free People. They all have great style, so I thought that for this week I would do British vs. American style. I love them both, but tell us, which do you relate to more??

The Brits:

Welsh sisters! Both wearing an FP intimates top. Shop the updated version here.


The Hand Crochet Maxi Dress layered over an old FP beach style.




The Americans:


Get the look with our Destroyer Tee, FP High Waisted Printed Shorts, Eloise Platforms, and Sheer Tights


Liking the poncho? We have a great selection here.


The American Rebel Tee gone good girl



The Tattered Flag Scarf puts the Americana cherry atop this look.



The FP Skinny Cords in dusty rose look great with this muted and soft look.

Amazing New York City decor inspiration, via The Selby, of course.

There is no question that I am more of a California girl, but I grew up in a townhouse in Philly and there is something so beautiful about the brownstones in Brooklyn. That would definitely be where I’d want to live in NYC… what about you?

Marc -May 23, 2012, 2:46AM
A brownstone in NYC (Brooklyn) may likely cost you a cool million or more, just so you know. If it's in one of the 'better' areas of Brooklyn, particularly places like Park Slope, you can add another 50% on to the asking price. We just bought a new apartment in Midwood - nothing flashy, only 1050 sqr ft in a new building, but that was near $500k (it's a condo, not a co-op). The same money could buy a near mansion of 3 times the sqr footage in most other states... My point is, if you're thinking of moving to NYC and picture yourself living in a old brownstone or anything even remotely nice, you batter bring a very big bag of cash with you. NYC is one expensive city to live in. And if you're thinking Manhattan, you can add another zero onto the price tag. I kid you not.

Post image for Blogger Diary: Scrubbing Away Winter Blues

Well it’s definitely Winter. While I seem to hold up to the cold better than others (growing up in Syracuse, NY will teach anyone) my skin has been feeling the effects. Read More

fp naomi -Jan 10, 2012, 9:31AM
Hey Rhonda, if you follow the link it will take you to Amazon where you can order it online. If you don't want to order it online, you can probably find it - or something similar - at any natural foods or skincare store. Just look for something with almond oil and vitamin E. Good luck! And Sara - yes, you can also make scrubs with epsom salts. Use the same ratio of 1/3cup oil to 1cup salts with 8-10drops of essential oil. I also like to grind the salts down a bit more if they're really chunky. I happened to already have brown sugar in the house and didn't feel like spending money for the salt which is why I used the sugar. Whichever you prefer - I think that they both work great!
mervelous -Jan 10, 2012, 7:31AM
Yay! Syracuse in the house! :-) Thanks Naomi! I will definitely make some of this.
