Post image for office style

Office style this week was quite eclectic, it looked like people here at the office had done some travelling and picked up beautiful items from around the world. Very inspirational.
I especially adored our New Romantics designer’s print, which looked like it had come from Hawaii, and all the cool accessories especially that giant healing gem. Just another day at the office of Free People.

Hey Linda, the Hawaiian print outfit is actually vintage.

I know its been forever, two years almost to the day, that I saw the black and white dress in Pasadena. I had a dream about it last night and now feel compelled to find it. Does anyone know where I can find this dress? Or what its called so I can search for it. The info would be greatly appreciated.
Rin -Jul 19, 2011, 4:12AM
Seeing photo shoots like this, make me fall in love with this brand more. Free people gives off this comfy high fashion vibe.

Post image for thursday poll – edition 140

It’s poll time again! This week we want you to pick your favorite look from our Japonaise collection. I’m a big fan of the look – it’s so sultry and mysterious! I can’t decide which pieces I want to buy first. Pretty florals, linear cuts, peak-out black lace – which is your favorite look?

Look 1 Look 2 Look 3 06292011022716 Look 4 06292011022753 Look 506292011023105

I love look 3, but I am going to go with look 1. It's flirty, serious, mysterious, (on the side) quiet. I love looks that keep people guessing and wanting more.

Post image for We’re going to Pitchfork

On July 15th, me and few girls from the Free People stores are heading to the pitchfork music festival in Chicago. We‘re pretty thrilled to be heading to such an awesome festival. The lineup is incredible! Pitchfork is the No1 go-to site for new music and up-and-coming bands, so it makes sense that they are featuring some of the coolest performances.

What’s more exciting is that while we’re there we WILL BE style stalking to capture lovely girls in great outfits for our blog. Over the next few days you will see the outfits that we’ve created and a low down on what bands we are soooo excited to see. Post-festival you will get a run down of our style stalked outfits, candid photos, and close-up action of the bands on stage. We look forward to seeing you if you are attending, if not be sure to follow the experience of FP goes festival!

Pitchfork is set in the ever so stylish city of Chicago, so you’re able to dress somewhat nicer. I’m teaming the spin me wrap skirt with the crochet long sleeve top, these festival perfect leather ankle boots available come August and the and a cute little fringed bag – most items will be available when our Rock steady July book hits next week.

Here’s some of the items featured above – Spin me wrap skirt riviera hat

Stay tuned for more of our festival outfits these coming days!

Post image for office space polaroids











so, i just got an iphone…after holding out for a while, i decided to join the party. i still find it a little overwhelming, but i will say this – the photography apps are amazing! hence the office space polaroids…(taken with the shake it app).

do you guys have any recommendations for great apps, photo or otherwise?

Leen -Aug 25, 2011, 8:46AM

Post image for from brooklyn: prospect park love

Brooklyn is such a perfect little hub of culture and beauty. Most people come to New York to see Manhattan, but we think that Brooklyn is where NY’s true beauty is. All of the Free People Brooklyn girls live and work in Brooklyn! We want to take you on a little tour of one of our neighborhood’s prized possessions, Prospect Park!

Prospect Park 3

Prospect Park is 585 acres of gorgeous grass, pond, trees, and sights that touches a handful of neighborhoods that surround it. Summer is when Prospect Park shines; Brooklynites all around the borough come to relax and plant their toes in the grass and enjoy all the events the park hosts.

The Green Market is one of my favorite parts of spring/summer in Prospect Park. It’s a beautiful farmers market that brings produce, dairy, meats and treats from upstate to Grand Army Plaza

Grand Army

Famers Market

The Green market offers vast varieties of vendors! Anything you can imagine you’ll find at the Green Market; fruits, fish, product, meats, herbs, plants, and delicious treats!


String Beans


Flower Tent


If you are in New York and are looking for a way to treat yourself to amazing foods, stop by the Green Market!

And, I took a different path on my way to the Brooklyn Free People after leaving the Green Market  and I came across the most beautiful mosaic house around the corner from our store. It pays off taking a different route every once and awhile :)

i love the little free people store on smith street in brooklyn. my freind lives right down the street from it. i agree, brooklyn is so much more charming than the city. it totally reminds me of my city of portland, or.
Victoria @ The Pursuit of Hippieness -Jun 29, 2011, 3:07PM
I kick myself all the time for living just outside the city and never having been to Brooklyn! Definitely on my agenda this summer, especially the farmer's market!

Post image for rope swirl tapestry – giveaway!!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

i have another gorgeous piece from our summer store displays to give away! this amazing rope swirl tapestry was hand-made by our talented display team using rope, various brightly colored strings and pom poms and tassels inspired by india.  hang it on your wall, use it as a carpet in a hallway, a table runner – whatever your heart desires! one thing’s for sure- no one else will have anything like it :)


this tapestry is actually two pieces – so you can take it apart and hang them separately or keep it as one long piece!


lots of you are asking for a diy – you’re in luck, we did one :) find it here.
