a few weeks ago we invited one of our loyal fans to come visit the home office for a day, and our videographer put together this sweet video as a memento for her :) it’s cool because it gives you an idea of what a typical day is like here at the home office!

they’re vagabonds… rock ‘n’ rollers who travel from town to town with their belongings strung across their backs, guitar cases in hand.  the autumn gypsy is a mix of the bohemian hippie with a rocker edge. she spends her days beading jewelry and making necklaces with good luck charms that she gives out to friends and people she meets in her travels.  she reads palms and loses herself in deep thought when the weather shifts a certain way -  as days grow shorter and trees cast long shadows across her path her spirit comes alive, a mischeivious sparkle in her eyes. her friends have gatherings in the woods around bonfires that flicker across the crackling paint of old caravans. they tell stories and play songs into the night, reading poetry by candlelight and looking for patterns in the stars up above.

here’s a playlist of music this trend brought to mind.

I lately discovered your blog/website and have truly loved reading this and some of your other posts. I thought I'd dive out from the shadows and leave my very first comment. I am not certain what to say other than I have enjoyed reading and can carry on to visit as often as I can.

Post image for where to stay in kent

while shooting our september catalog our team stayed in the gorgeous chilston park hotel, a historic manor house in lenham, kent, that has been home to politicians, writers and lords.  not only is it located in the heart of the scenic “garden of england,” the hotel is full of history, with rooms that still have their original fireplaces, four-poster beds and antiques. here are some photos our team took…

i love all the cool old cars!

Post image for the rainbow braid

a lot of you have been asking about the amazing technicolor fishtail braid in our september catalog.  well lucky for us, our videographer was on hand to film the process! check it out…

How to do Amazing Rainbow Fishtail Braids by Free People from FreePeople on Vimeo.

it’s actually pretty simple! our team bought colored extensions at a hair/beauty supply store and glued them into model karolina’s hair, then carefully braided them into the fishtail.  the rainbow effect is stunning!

the song in the video is “woh woh yea yea” by the dynamos.

Syrene -Dec 08, 2011, 4:39PM
When you glue the extensions to the models head, how long does it take for it to come out?
