Details: Rings & Things

DIY Newspaper Nails

– paint your nails with base coat of choice (a light color will work best)

– once dry, soak nails in alcohol

– press piece of newspaper to nails one at a time, and remove

– paint with clear top coat





Halloween nails! I love the idea of skulls on your nails :)

Style File: Edition 2

Meet this week’s style inspiration – the design assistant for New Romantics here at Free People. I was immediately attracted by her laid back and beautiful – yet approachable – look. I checked in on her daily to get to know her better and bring you her week in style file.


In her romantic, somewhat demure, way of dressing she reflects her personality perfectly. She seems quiet and shy at first, but is then sweet beyond words as soon as you approach her. This is a girl who doesn’t wear outfits that shout “look at me,” but rather, “come closer.” Pay attention and you’ll notice a dainty necklace or a gorgeous etched bracelet.

As assistant designer for the Free People New Romantics, she will be given a fabric chosen by her boss, the head designer for New Romantics, and then has to come up with styles using what she is given. The process usually starts with a sketch. Her sketches themselves are amazingly inspirational to look at. She will then drape the piece – usually doing about one a day. After she’s done draping, she will pass everything along to tech who takes it from there. This week she was already working on things for next summer.

And now for a peek into her personal life =)



Office Style: Little Details

If there’s one thing Free People employees know how to do … it’s accessories. Everyone had on the best little details today, so I just had to get up close and personal.

As if the shoes weren’t cool enough on their own – she takes layering to the next level with crocheted socks.

Probably the coolest vintage bag I’ve seen…ever?



I’m a huge fan of layering on tons of cool necklaces. These ladies paired the look with awesome textures in their clothes for an even cooler vibe.


So subtle and beautiful!

Basics pop with the addition of unique statement necklaces.
