Britain is known for its hearty/comfort meals; food that is filling and has been carried through the centuries. You could call them unfussy dishes, made with quality local produce matched with simple sauces. Read More
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.
Get the look with our Heavy Knit Pieced Sweater in Mayan Blue.
The skull bracelet is available in FP stores!
while shooting the belle of the ball section of our november book, our lucky team got to spend a week at eglingham hall in north umberland, england. i can see why tim walker used it as the location for his fantasy-like photo shoots, as it looks like a place with many stories to tell and secrets hiding in its walls. here’s a peek inside…

tea for two.
this picture makes me laugh.

thank you to our producer for these beautiful photos!
I moved here in January from the big smoke London. I wanted to start fresh so packed light and got on the big jet plane.
Moving to a new country can be a pretty daunting experience. Unfamiliar with my new surroundings I had to find a place to live, pretty tough yes!
I wanted to find a place that I could play around with and create a little haven for myself. Not knowing Philadelphia I came across the first place that was safe and pleasant and took it.
Now I’m having fun making it my own. I love using my walls to create collages of inspirational thought; I collect random photo frames to trap my most memorable photos hang trinkets from family and friends and feature dried flowers wherever possible.
When I have friends over they engage themselves in the floor length mirror while I burn my multi coloured candles, dripping wax over wine bottles. The Diptyque scent usually fills the air while Nick Drakes plays subtly in the background.
My place is almost there, it’s nearly reached that comfort zone.
Starting from scratch is the most refreshing thing and letting your personality pour into a new home is quite satisfying don’t you think?
