i’m crazy about our collection of old west-inspired accessories.  the colors are so beautiful… i don’t know what it is about turquoise and coral but it always draws me in.  i love the idea of layering a whole bunch of these necklaces and bracelets. which is your favorite?

the sliding rock layering necklace by vanessa mooney:

the four corners bangles by sibilia:

the isis breeze necklace by rejoice the hands:

the fiesta bangles by vanessa mooney:

the peoria necklace by archive:

or the rocky canyon arm cuff by cleobella:

and here are the results from last week’s lookbook poll – only 6 votes separated the top two looks but the winner was look 6! i’m a big fan of that one :)

A++ to the visual team at Free People...if only my dream could come true (to be part of that team). Ever need to open a NYC Office, feel FREE to contact me. I especially love the ambiance of the Soho Store.

Post image for more stockings!

a couple of readers saw my stocking DIY a couple of weeks ago and sent in photos of stockings that they created based on the tutorial! i had to share cause they’re really cute :)

right: a shorter version, from courtney – love them ladies thanks for sending in photos!

Post image for Brighten up your bottoms

I’m the type of person who usually stays in the safe zone when it comes to bottoms, jumping back

and forth with denim, black skirts and skinny trousers.

However, I’m getting a little excited about the evolving printed bottoms trend that is emerging -

Adding a little pretty, pretty to the below the waist is quite appealing. Tone it down by making your top half boy;

Plaid shirts, denim vests and waistcoats. Finish it off by adding a touch of frontier-esque – Throw on a rider

hat and away you go!

ah! loving these little magazine christmas trees and how easy they are to make! i saw them on the blog green eyed monster and thought it was such an awesome idea for using old magazines. i of course have a ton of free people catalogs lying around so i thought… why not? i decided to use our november catalog since its nice and thick and i knew it would make a great tree.

one

start by folding the first page over as pictured above.

two

next fold the same page over again, and then fold up the part hanging over the bottom so that you have a straight edge along the bottom.

three

repeat this step on every page of the magazine – i actually thought it was kinda cool to see how different pages looked folded together like a collage.

four

once all your pages are folded, stand the tree up and spread out the pages until you’re happy with how it looks! and of course, the more the merrier :)

Post image for holiday downloads for you!

good morning! we have a new graphic design assistant and she made these adorable holiday downloads for the blog – the smaller one is iphone wallpaper and the larger one is for your computer desktop. but as our graphic designer suggested (and i agree) it would make such cute wrapping paper, don’t you think? just print some out and use it to wrap small gifts!

click on the images to go to our flickr page and download them. enjoy!

she made a really cute card too, i’ll post that next week :)

i’ve always been a fan of matt pond PA but it wasn’t until this past weekend that i got around to listening to their latest album, the dark leaves. it actually feels appropriate that i’d discover it at this time of the year, because every time i listen to it the soothing melodies and gentle lyrics envelop me like a soft blanket of snow. the song “winter fawn” is like a december evening encapsulated in song, with dreamy lyrics that draw you into a picture he paints with his voice… listen to a few songs from the album below.

Post image for free people guide to NYC: part one

i am so excited to finally bring you the free people guide to new york city! you may remember a few weeks back, jemma and i went to new york to check out some spots we love and take pictures, and we’ve put together a guide of all of our favorite hotels, restaurants, hang-outs, shops and more. as you look through the guide, keep an eye out for the little red snowflake sticker, which indicates a place that’s great to go to during the holiday season!

there’s definitely a magical air in new york city around the holidays, and it would be the destination of choice for our candy girl who loves tradition and everything about the holidays – the decorations, the music, the smells and of course, the snow.

i will post the guide in three sections over the next few days but starting today you can find the entire thing on flickr – right here – where you can download the large size and print out your own copy of the fp guide to nyc!

first up, where to stay and where to eat!

My boyfriend lives about a couple blocks from Five Leaves and we go there a lot. The food is amazing, probably one of the best restaurants in that neighborhood :)

I love Rolf's! Not so much for the food but the decor is breathtaking and I love that they change it a few times each year!

Post image for fp holiday gift guide: meadow

meadow loves to spend the holidays outdoors. every year she and her friends take off for a cabin in the woods where they spend nights huddled round bonfires drinking hot chocolate, telling stories and playing songs on guitars and wooden flutes.  they wake up early to watch the sun rise before exchanging gifts on christmas morning.

meadow wishlist

win meadow over with gifts that appeal to her creative side and connection with nature.  the vintage peter max postcards would inspire her artistically, as would a journal to record her thoughts and dreams.  she would love our western-inspired jewelry like turquoise necklaces and rings, the native gypsy cuff and meeko feather earring. The lasso pony holders will keep her hair out of her face on adventures and she’d love the gretta over the knee slipper socks because they’re cute, comfy and environmentally friendly. meadow wears clothing that is special and unique like her, and the fp one desert florals maxi skirt would remind her of a field of wildflowers. the fp one bandana tie halter has the creative details she is drawn to, and she would live in the desert peasant tunic. finally, tough accessories like a leather crossbody or hat that will last her a lifetime.

view our lou gift guide here and candy gift guide here!

I view all the design! I am also a meadow girl and like the meadow design and fashions. Thanks for providing such useful information. I really appreciate your professional approach.
Oda -Dec 14, 2010, 1:52PM
I always thought I was most of a Meadow girl, and this description just proves it! Most of the things were already on my wishlist. And drinking hot chocolate around the fireside - what could be better? :)! LOVE IT !
