Reminder: Leap Day Giveaway!

Don’t Forget! Today is your last chance to enter our Leap Day Giveaway! We’ll pick a winner at the end of the day, 2/29 :)

We wanted to do something special to celebrate this rare occasion, so we did a little bit of spring cleaning in our accessories department and scrounged up some awesome stuff to give away. I organized the accessories into goodie bags for each fp girl – meaning we’ll have five winners!

All you have to do is click here and fill out the brief form, and tell us which fp girl you are.

Happy Leap Day!

One of our biggest obsessions of the moment: studs.

We can’t get enough of them! On t-shirts, bags, jewelry, leather, and especially shoes – any kind of shoe – we love the cool factor they add to standard styles. What do you think about studs, do you love them as much as we do?

Check out our Hard Wear collection – there are some pretty rad studded vintage tees you don’t wanna miss!

DIY Gold Chain Rings from A Pair and a Spare

I have been into really thin rings in a big way lately – I keep spotting them on blogs and tumblr, and I love how delicate they look. Rumi rocks two little gold bands in the left photo, and on the right are a set of three that my dad gave me for Christmas (it’s crazy – he has the best taste in jewelry). Read More

Details: Quirky & Cool

I love quirky little details… today I kept noticing little things that made an outfit unique, like a little bit of leather on a denim shirt, pairing a vintage tee with a sequin vest, adding suspenders to the basic denim and tee, statement collar necklaces, striped denim and leopard, neon bracelets – you name it, our FP girls are rocking it.

Style File: Associate Buyer – Accessories

This week’s style file is our Associate Buyer for accessories, who traveled to the US from England to work at Free People. Her style is quirky and avant garde. It’s full of color and pattern – often with a theme like neon or turquoise. I love the risks she takes. There’s no fear, and nothing is too outrageous. It is, however, always inspiring.

Free People Walnut Street Opening

Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia.  We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place.  If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!
