Post image for talking with our interns!

left: carolina, right: nicole

say hello to two of our sweet and adorable interns, carolina and nicole! they are going into their senior year of high school and have spent the last two weeks interning here at free people. these best friends had a unique and exciting internship that allowed them to experience several departments here at the home office.  i spent a little time with them today to talk about their experience!

what was your favorite part of your internship here?

both: being in the photo studio! watching the stylists at work and seeing the models was really exciting.

nicole: i actually loved hanging up all the clothes when they were finished shooting with them! i loved getting to see all the beautiful clothing up close.

carolina: it’s been amazing, we’ll never get an experience like this again!

both: spending time with the designers was really cool too because we got to see just how much they do! they showed us items online that they had designed and you never really think about that, it’s crazy.  we’re not the most talented with our hands and we tried to sew a sweater – it was a disaster.

talking about high school and proms with our senior stylist!

what is your dream job?

carolina: after this experience, i think i would love to be a designer or a buyer.

nicole: i would definitely want to be a stylist or buyer if i worked for a clothing company, but my dream has always been to be a doctor!

their collage of free people girls.

which free people girl are you?

nicole: i’m definitely lou during the day and ginger at night!

carolina: i think a little bit of all of them, except for lou.

nicole: you’re a mix of candy and ginger for sure :)

what is your favorite free people item?

nicole: i am completely obsessed with the coachella boots (pictured below on candy).  they’re all i can think about. my dad finally agreed to get them for me as an early birthday present and i am SO excited!

carolina: i love the green motorcuff thermal (pictured below on lou)! but i want every color, i’d wear them all the time.

Hey, I LOVE THE FIRST PICTURE of the girl with the pink hair. Is there any way in the next "Office Style" that you could put up a picture of her hair down? I was thinking of doing the same thing to my hair and I just want to see what it looks like. Thanks!

Post image for style how-to! the lace & chiffon slip

the chiffon and lace slip dress is without a doubt one of our most versatile items.  it’s all about the layering and how you style it – and fortunately we have the girls of free people highland park to offer up some fabulous ideas! (you may remember these very same girls showing multiple ways to wear the ruffle bottom slip not too long ago!)

wear it over the ruffle up solid tunic to get a cute “little black dress” look! accessorized here with the reese woven leather belt and peacock charm necklace.

32207_439041090860_139404335860_6109083_5886140_n
dress it down over the fp lightweight super skinny jeans and calluna lace tank, with the linked leather stretch belt over top.

32207_439041685860_139404335860_6109111_4332985_n
doesn’t it look adorable with the floral peeking through the lace??

32207_439041700860_139404335860_6109112_4597662_n
this might be my favorite – worn over skinny jeans with the we the free tiger’s eye tunic over top. such a great idea!

32207_439041720860_139404335860_6109115_3393427_n
on the left – get a more boyish look with skinny jeans and we the free graphic tee underneath.
on the right – get girly with a printed mini under the slip and the medallion tunic over top.

32207_439042025860_139404335860_6109120_1277672_n
another amazing idea! throw it over the new crinkle floral dress for a totally unique look!

32207_439042060860_139404335860_6109124_7015970_n

32207_439042070860_139404335860_6109126_740576_n
and last but certainly not least – the slip adds cute femininity to cargo shorts and the short sleeve scoop front tunic!

fantastic ideas, ladies!!

hi linda! i responded to your email- i don't know of any application process, but i know you don't need to be based in philly. our team often hires photographers whose work they are familiar with and think would be a good match with the catalog's style and atmosphere.

when we posted photos of our new costa mesa, california, store the other day, you may have noticed these beautiful fabric-covered vases sitting on some of the shelves. i loved them so i did a little digging to find out how are display team made them…

our team used large aluminum vases cast in india – but you can pick up some large inexpensive flower pots at your local gardening shop.

two

india

next you need some pretty fabric. our team used antique turbans, bridal blouses and quilts they picked up over in india. check out vintage stores and flea markets for pretty vintage fabrics that work just as well :)

fabric

now all you need is some mod podge, which you can order online or get from an arts & crafts store. use the mod podge to coat the fabric so it stays on the vases.  use the fabric however you want- i think it would look cool if you cut different fabrics into strips and collaged them onto the vase for a quilted effect!

our shoe buyer uses her’s to carry fritz out of the office! he must have had a long day :)

What vendor makes these bags? I LOVE them and want something very similar for our wedding favors!
abby -Jul 02, 2010, 7:30PM
first i cut the straps off, then i sew the ends so it doesn't fray. Then i sew a zipper on the opening, tie the strap into a bow, and sew it on to the bag. Finally i put a pillow inside and it makes a beautiful pillow case!
