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…
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?
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist.
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.
Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot.
Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!!
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!

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!
Such an awesome idea, and a great way to incorporate her love of Free People into her wedding!
