Post image for bbq at the navy yard!

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 :)

Fabulous space!! I've looked all over for the address to Bld 25 but can't find it. What is the actual address to there? Thanks!!

Oh my gosh, can I work at Free People?? (Except I'd have to move...and push all my creativity into work....) What a lovely work environment + party! And I love the bricks as part of the centerpieces.

Post image for our stylists’ picks for fall

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 :)”

items pictured above: 1. wide leg easy pant; 2. leather hip belt; 3. ruffled tweed jacket; 4. leather expedition hat; 5. bag coming soon.

and now our assistant stylist:

“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.”

items pictured above: 1. long sleeve lace buttondown tunic; 2. cable beanie; 3. whiplash mini; 4. aralia tall heeled boot; 5. doma hooded biker jacket; 6. far away cable cardigan.

If it’s not online any longer, we don’t have any via direct. If you email service@freepeople.com they will be able to help you locate it in stores. =)

Office Style

Post image for Office Style

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.

caroline -Aug 24, 2010, 4:59PM
yes jem its great for you... but its very sad for me!! i want her back here!! lol. xxxxx
claireabelle -Aug 24, 2010, 9:11AM

Post image for purple

when i was in the photo studio last week for our latest how-to style session, i kept finding myself admiring our associate stylist’s hair! she died her ends purple and i think it looks awesome – as a fellow brunette who loves the whole colored hair trend, i’ve often wondered what colors would look good with brown hair and i think purple definitely does! it’s subtle but still catches the eye.

Lucy -Nov 08, 2011, 6:42PM
I love your blog!! its so cute and simple! the pics and the videos are really pretty and simple!! i really really love this photo! i have brown hair and i want to die my hair purple, but im not quite sure how i want to do it! Now I do!! Thanks so muchh!!!
Julia -Sep 18, 2010, 1:38PM
What kind of color did she use to dye her hair, because i tried it with blue and it wouldn't wanted to stay!?

Post image for back to the garden

i have a really wierd obsession with woodstock.  i wasn’t even alive back then but it pains me to think i wasn’t able to be a part of that experience.  our vintage buyer took a trip to bethel, new york,  and brought back some photos of the festival site and her friend’s place – i nearly died when i saw them. one day i will get there.

The hippy times were so grovy and the pot so good and the people so cool but all good things have to make way for the bad. Evil invaded all that love and poof it was gone. Yeah I was a part of that happening and now I'm 66 years old and looking back it was the best part of my life.

Post image for fall store displays!

like it or not, fall is just around the corner… which of course means new store displays! here are some shots of the new displays at our king of prussia, PA store. the rich colors and the added texture of the yarn is perfect for fall, bringing to mind a cozy knit sweater you just want to wrap yourself up in.

i love how the fabric seems to be dripping from the ceiling, like the store is oozing creativity.

you may recognize the fabric covered vases that have been pictured around our home office and at our costa mesa store.

i think my favorite part of the display is the yarn.  it is also used as decoration here at the home office – i love it, the colors make me happy :)

amazing work again, guys!

Anthropologie sells these quilts as found objects in their stores. The prices range from $200-$300 which may be why Free People won't sell or give their sources for the quilts. There are many vendors on Etsy who sell kantha quilts and many who will see you a bundle of, say 10 for the price of one at Anthro. check it out: http://www.etsy.com/listing/127455855/10-wholesale-vintage-kantha-quilt-kantha?ref=shop_home_active If you can sew or are resourceful in finding someone who can make your curtain panels, Voila!
Lilwy -Apr 25, 2012, 10:57PM
I also love the curtains you use in your dressing rooms. Where can I buy them? Are they for sale? Hope so. Love 'em.
