This is an adorable puppy. I had one just like it and now she is a most adorable full gone mini dashound. I love her so much and she has the heart and courage of our 110 pound brownn lab! They are best friends and they are the cutest when they play together. They make my life so full! Darlene

Post image for mom’s boho style contest!

when it comes to bohemian style one of the first things that come to my mind are the sixties and seventies and photos of my mom in bell bottom jeans, long skirts and peasant tops – looking through photos of her in her twenties is so inspirational. was your mom a total free people girl when she was young?

send us a photo of your mom in a boho, vintage outfit  and we will pick a winner and recreate the clothing depicted in the photo! the runner up will receive a $100 gift card.

to enter the contest, click here.

*you must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of the US to enter.


i can’t wait to see your photos!

I don't know if it's relevant ... but we could do the same for fathers day? My dad was a pretty foxy boho babe too!

Post image for mother’s day at fp upper east!

celebrate mother’s day this saturday at free people upper east side! they will be taking personal mother/daughter shopping appointments all day long, so just call or show up with your mom – and you might be photographed for the blog!

plus, there will be a special surprise at checkout for your mom, and of course, refreshments!

1319 3rd ave, nyc
(212) 744-0379

sounds like so much fun! the same store had a girls night out event a couple of weeks ago, where they styled customers in head-to-toe night out looks – perfect for a night out on the town or a special date! their sales manager melissa gave the girls makeup tips to help them complete their look, and of course no free people event would be complete without lemonade and cupcakes :)

check out some of the cute pics from the event, and if you’re in the area take your mom out for a day of free people fun on saturday!

i love these colorful rings from seven ply’s etsy shop and the fact that they’re made out of recycled skateboards makes them even cooler! i could definitely see lou rocking one of these couldn’t you?

they also make really cool earrings, necklaces and belt buckles:

check out the etsy shop here.

how adorable are these wall decals? one of our soho employees sent these photos, which are of a craft project she and her sister did for her sister’s new baby’s room.  they found vintage sheets and cool textile fabrics and cut out the shapes.  they then corn starched them and attached them to the walls of his bedroom.  this is something you can do with any fabric and it adheres really well, plus they peel right off if you ever want to take them down or change them up!  i love this idea, and there are so many things you could do.  here are a few more examples i found to stir the creative juices:

there’s also a full tutorial to show you how to do it right here!

I LOVE it. What a great way to perk up a plain white wall! I think the birds flying in a flock are my favourite!

a little lace

Post image for a little lace

lately i am completely obsessed with lace curtains…ever since i went to our creative director’s home and saw her bathroom, which is draped with lace instead of walls, i have been wanting to get some for my place.  they add such a soft touch to a room, and i love the way light looks when it streams through, creating patterns on the floor.  my place is a big open studio sort of like hers, so there are lots of opportunities to try this – the beaded curtain in my bedroom doorway is looking like it will be replaced pretty soon…

Laura -May 25, 2010, 3:56PM
Beautiful! Where did you find all of these amazing fabrics?
Angela -May 05, 2010, 1:24PM
Love the lace, cant wait to do some of my own. I will be on a mission this week to find some deals, maybe the Sal for the lace?

Post image for store employee profile: kristen from soho!

meet kristen! she’s a sales associate at our soho store and a dj in her spare time.  read on as she answers our free people questionnaire and check out some pics of her rocking fp as she djs and travels around japan!

what is your theme song?
“ice cream” by the australian band muscles has been my theme song ever since i heard it a few years ago. it’s all about my favorite things: having a good time and frozen treats!

if you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?
japan! i have a lot of family there, but i barely get to see them because it’s such an expensive trip. plus, tokyo is the capital of cuteness and the shopping there is incredible! too bad they don’t sell shoes big enough to fit my size 10 feet…

out and about in kyoto, japan – wearing the blank jeggings every day!

if you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?
moby-dick, a magical fruit tree that grows every type of fruit and SPF 30.

what is your biggest fear?
space! have you SEEN “total recall”??

winter, spring, summer or fall?
living in my own invincible summer!

what color are you?
tie-dye

what is your motto?
always hungry.

what is your favorite hobby?
definitely cooking. i love to host huge sunday meals for my friends so that we can chat and eat all day long. i’ve always been a baker but am currently trying to teach myself french cuisine.

if you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?
bea arthur! who’s funnier than her?

dj
when she’s not working at our free people soho store you can catch kristen dj-ing at the knitting factory in brooklyn, every thursday from 10pm-2am, with her partner in crime emilia (top left).

how would you describe your personal style? what are your favorite items from free people right now?
i was a little bit of a metal-head growing up and never let go of my ripped jeans, studded jackets and loose tees, but now that i’m older, i’ve learned to incorporate floral patterns, bright colors and textures into my outfits.  i LOVE the we the free solid swept away tunic in pink… it’s the exact color of raspberry sherbert and looks amazing with my marbled cross necklace.

i’ve also learned that my into the mystic dress is SO versatile — perfect layered under an a-line skirt or sheer dolman top.

picks

1. blank denim legging; 2. we the free solid swept away tunic; 3. into the mystic dress; 4. bleached keds.

nikki -May 05, 2010, 9:29AM

Post image for summer festival rundown

in case you couldn’t tell, we here at free people love music festivals.  we saw a ton of free people girls at coachella and it definitely got us thinking about ways we can be more involved with festivals in the future. up next is sasquatch, set in a stunningly beautiful gorge in washington state that might have the prettiest stage backdrop i’ve seen yet.

there are always a few select bands making the festival rounds too.  this year the XX, the national, phoenix, local natives and black keys seem to be hitting up quite a few.  read more for a brief look at what’s coming up this summer and some of the top acts you’ll catch at each festival (although there are really too many to list)!

also make sure you check out our picks for festival fashion right here!
