Stay inspired and dont miss a thing. Weekly updates from BLDG 25

Post image for Office Style

Everyone showed up ready for work and looking good this week. Femme lace and preppy elements like classic stripes and trousers seemed to have a big role in how we were feeling. The classic touches were accented with funky bellbottoms and cheetah print punches throughout.  On top of it all there were some great maxi dresses and fun pops of lipstick. I have to say, this week in office style there was much for the eyes to enjoy. Check it out…

Post image for Thursday Poll: High-Heeled Ankle Boots

I can’t help but notice all of the great new ankle boots we have up on the Free People site. I’m especially loving a bunch of the heeled/wedged styles. I think that my wardrobe could benefit from one or two pairs of the following. What do you all think? Any favorites?

Avila Ankle Boot

Darla Platform

Dustin Wedge Boot

so difficult to choose! my vote goes to BOTH the Avila ankle boot and the Ponderosa boot,. . the Ponderosa wins over in my eyes though . . I love them all!

Post image for Street Style: Sweater Dressing

Fall is creeping in, bringing with it crisper air, crunchy leaves and sweater season! We love the trend of sweater dressing from head-to-toe, outfitting yourself in bulky knits, cozy leggings, cute little sweater shorts and trading in summery maxis and rompers for sweater maxis and overalls. Our senior photographer captured some great sweater dressing street style inspiration right here at the Navy Yard!

I could live in the Americana Sweater Jumper all fall and winter long! It looks awesome over a seamless layering top with boots.

Here the comfy Poconos Sweater Legging and Easy Days Off-The-Shoulder Sweater are dressed up with a pair of funky platforms!

Double up by wearing the Vermont Knit Sweater Shorts over a pair of cozy leggings! Worn here with the lovebug thermal, fringe crossbody and Jonesy Heeled Hiker Boot.

We love layering a sweater maxi dress over a pretty, lacey maxi skirt! Worn with a bib necklace and platforms.

Love this casual-cool look of striped sweater shorts over tights with an oversized sweater and tall boots!

free-people-street-style

A look I will be wearing a lot this fall and winter – denim cutoffs over the Poconos Sweater Legging! Worn here with the flannel cuff thermal, crocheted plaid button down, brit boot and weekender bag (and a seriously rad van).

Shop all sweater dressing.

During every fashion week the streets come alive with bright colours, glorious prints and rich textures. The sidewalks come alive and show respect to high fashion. We headed to Lincoln centre to see what we could capture; here are some of our best shots of the day!

Post image for FNO: Honestly WTF Friendship bracelets

The friendship bracelets that Honestly WTF made at our FNO event were beautiful and a true symbol of what free people stands for. They’re unbelievably quite simple to make and FUN!

They’re perfect for a quiet night in with your girlfriends. just sit around the table, chit chat, and proceed with these instructions – the outcome, a generous gift to give to your closet friend. We loved them and we hope you do too!

via Honestly WTF

You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :

  • 44 inches of 1.5mm leather cord
  • 12 inches of brass ball chainn or crystal chainn
  • 58 inches of waxed linen cordd
  • a 1/4″ brass hex nut
  • a pair of scissors

fno

Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop. The loop should fit around the hex nut, which serves as the clasp. Run the tip of the waxed linen upwards along the leather cord and towards the loop. Then wrap around the base of the loop at least 5-6 times, working downwards in the opposite direction. This secures the waxed linen cord and is the start of the bracelet.

FNO

Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Holding the ball chain against the leather cord, wrap the linen around tightly.

FNO

Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist.

fno

When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Tie a knot with all three strands.

FNO

Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot.

FNO

Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!!

FNO

The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet. For a single or triple wrapped bracelet, divide the measurements by 2 and multiply by accordingly. Experiment with crystal or other types of chain! Make as many as you like and fill your wrist up!

Post image for A Free People Wedding Gift: Quilted Fabric Clutches

Our operations coordinator is also getting married, and had the amazing idea to incorporate some of the beautiful quilted fabric from India that we use for lots of our store displays – by having it used to make one-of-a-kind clutches as gifts for her bridesmaids! She worked with her friend Paige, a local designer behind Christine Shirley, who uses scraps of old fabric or old vintage clothes that may never come back in style to make handbags, clutches and more.  Check out the amazing clutches she made with the quilted fabric!
