The new BLDG15 Threads is out today, and this month it’s all about Home Office Style! We asked six different Home Office employees to go the racks and pick out a Free People outfit for spring, and to tell us a little bit about their own personal style! We made a really sweet little video of our endeavors, and got really inspired to keep making up fun outfits! To watch the video and get inspired yourself, head over to BLDG 15 Threads!
My friends, it’s time again for our Thursday Poll!
Last week I asked for your opinion on a number of harem pants we are currently selling, and the majority of you responded that harem pants are not for you, with that option getting 283 votes! Very interesting! Those of you who did like the look of harem pants favored the We The Free Crinkle Jersey Harem Pants, with 95 votes!
This week, I’ve been thinking about drapey, voluminous tops. I love them right now, and I actually have not yet talked to anyone that does not! They are definitely a major trend right now! I think it may be because they are flattering on so many body types.
We have a number of drapey tops in our collection right now, and I’d be interested to know which one you find most appealing!
First, take a look at our Angel Dolman Top shown here in white.
Next, check out our Double Drape Tank, also shown in white.
These delicious-looking candy plants are really pleasing to the eye, don’t you think? I can’t tell if they’re photoshopped or not, what do you think? I know they’re by Joachim LaPotre, but I can’t find too much on his site of how he makes his photos. Either way, they sure are appealing and inspiring!

Joetta Maue is making beautiful statements with vintage textiles and needlework. She also makes these encouraging banners (ok, some are not so encouraging) that are inspiring me to make a permanent banner to hang in my apartment!
Any suggestions on what my banner should say??

I really like this silverware by Habitat. It’s so pretty! What do you think?
Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Eau de Voilette and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman, this short art film is an advertisement for a ficitional perfume and sure to be beautiful and interesting. If that doesn’t already get you thinking, the film is directed by Roman Polanski and was conceived by Francesco Vezzoli. I can’t wait for the online screening on February 6th on Dazed Digital.
Head over to Dazed now for the trailer, and then mark your calendar for the 6th!

Meet our friend Cristina!
Cristina is from Ft. Myers Beach, Florida, and she is one of the star item reviewers on our website, under the name beachcat! Cristina is a total Free People girl- she spends lots of time outside on the beach, boating and being with friends!
We did a little Q&A session with Cristina, and we found out some quite fun stuff!
What do you do for a living?
I own a charter and tour boat company with my husband, Good Time Charters! We do marine life kayak adventures, shelling cruises, dolphin wildlife cruises, fishing charters, and more! I also enjoy waiting tables part time.
What draws you to the Free People aesthetic?
I like the the unique prints, the embroidery, and the small details of the clothing!
What is your favorite article of Free People clothing?
I have so many! My favorites so far include the Yuca and Mayan sun dresses, and the Watercolor Stitches dress. I love dresses!
Do you have any pets?
I have three cats- 6, 9, and 12 yrs old. Two were abandoned by their previous owners and needed a new home- the other was dropped off at my vet’s office as a kitten.
I also have an Australian Blue-tongued skink that needed a home!
What inspires you?
Sounds of tree leaves rustling in the wind. Music. Warmth from the sun. Meeting good people.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I relax and day dream about my next vacation! I also enjoy boating with my husband and spending time with friends.
What do you like best about where you live?
It is a small island, I feel safe here, I can walk a couple minutes from my front door and go for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico.
The upcoming Valentine’s Day in mind, what would be your perfect date?
Being a tour guide and a waitress, I am always catering to someone else. While I love taking care of others, I would enjoy letting someone take care of me for a change! I would love a catered dinner on the beach with my husband, where we can talk and laugh without worry!
Thank you so much for sharing all this with us Cristina! It’s been a pleasure! Plus, now I know what a skink is!
And of course, thank you so much for all your feedback and reviews! ;) We have appreciated them time and time again!
