Post image for meet our vintage buyer!

this questionnaire will give you a little bit of an idea of who our vintage buyer is, but it doesn’t paint the full picture.  just like the items she works with, ali is one of a kind.  in the time that i’ve known her, i’ve learned that ali: 1. has an amazing cocllection of vintage rock tshirts, 2. has an adorable bulldog, named  chloe, who is blind, 3. left her car in arizona, 4. has a fisher price record player at her desk, 5. records her vintage purchases in a leather bound journal from the 1800s.

here’s a little more about ali :)

I am quite conflicted, I comments are quite varied but I notice price is one that keeps coming up here. Things look quite expensive. :/

I love Free People, but this is truly ridiculous. In it's newest "pearl collection", FP are selling faux pearls for upwards of $300, and stretch rhinestone bracelets for upwards of $100. At, many other vintage shops, one would be able to find real cultured pearls for that price, and similar bracelets for about $25. I'm sure they find unique items here and there. But anyone shopping the Vintage Loves site owes it to her/himself to do their research before purchasing.

One of my favorite things - and there are many - about living in Chicago is Lollapalooza. I hope everyone stayed an extra day to check out the Art Institute, Millennium Park, and some of our great neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Hyde Park, and Logan Square.

Post image for meet our wanderlust winner!

i know some of you have been wondering about our wanderlust winner :) the lucky girl is andrea from fairfax, california! i asked her some questions to learn some more about her, and it’s clear she’s a real yoga lover and free spirit – it’s great she was able to experience wanderlust!

treehugging

What is your theme song?

Breathe Me, Sia

If you could go anywhere in the world, free of cost, where would you go?

I’d sail the Caribbean (and the Mediterranean!) with my dad.

If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you want with you?

Since we’re speaking purely in hypotheticals… an eco-friendly, self-sustaining prefab dwelling; an old typewriter with the longest piece of banana paper imaginable; and an extensive supply of vegan pizza.

How would you describe your personal style? What are your favorite items from free people right now?

I’d say I’m kind of a boho badass, rocking torn jeans, oversized beanies and tight tops with draping jewelry and windswept hair. I’m really digging all the boots and the Ruffled Layers Maxi Skirt at Free People right now. And all the rough cut crystal jewelry is awesome (got me some of that).

What is your biggest fear?

Something bad happening to someone in my family.

Winter, spring, summer or fall?

Summer love… salty hair, tan skin, bikinis, booty shorts, fresh coconuts…

What color are you?

I am chartreuse.

What is your motto?

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu: May ALL beings EVERYWHERE be happy, free, and fully expressed, and may each of us live our lives to that end.

What is your favorite hobby?

Yoga! Though it’s much more than just a hobby…

If you could spend a day with anyone – dead or alive – who would it be?

A dinosaur (preferably not of the carnivorous variety…) or Pattabhi Jois

What was your favorite thing about Wanderlust?

Live music during yoga classes, especially Chid Rasa with Janet Stone and Hareesh Wallis. So decadent. So galvanizing to the soul. One word: yum.

AndreaJanetWL

here she is getting an adjustment from yoga instructor janet stone at wanderlust :)

I love the jacket in the second to last photo! Congrats on winning :)

Post image for hot hair tip!

so last month we made a little video showing you how to do a fishtail braid – and this month we have a kickass way to spice up your fishtail braid! our stylists and hair/makeup artist are loving this look right now – colorful streaks woven into the braid!

Now this can be done many ways- you can do one color or three, you can actually dye streaks in your hair, or you can put in colored extensions.

for the braid in these images our hair/makeup artist used extensions. she mixed blond, blue, purple and pink extensions together and spread them out before braiding them into a fishtail, which she then clipped into the model’s hair. simple enough, right?

here it is on a larger scale in our august catalog:

i love it and i am definitely going to try it!

Elena Golescu -Apr 24, 2012, 12:51PM
Direct sunlight is one of the common causes of hair damage. Even when you are wearing hair extensions, still protect your extensions and most especially your real hair from direct sunlight.
Lia -Mar 16, 2011, 10:15PM
This is lovely! I'm actually about to purchase some purple hair extensions but how did you get the color to be such an earthly, faded color?
