Store Style: NY & LA

We can’t wait for our catalog to drop next week! In anticipation of the January book and its coast to coast theme, I thought it would be fun to check out the style of our California and New York store girls – they all have such amazing style, and you can definitely see the difference in the style of the opposite coasts. I love them both!

“Made up my mind to make a new start, Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey, wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
as the children of the sun began to awake.”

– Led Zeppelin

The reverse it kachow thermal screams Cali style – and it goes with everything! Worn here, from left to right, with: the sequin cami, destroyed denim flares and marrakesh floppy hat; denim cutoffs and zigzag turban; pieced lace maxi and headband; zig zag lurex pant and headpiece; extreme flares and hat.

Catalog Behind the Scenes: Morocco in the 1970s

There’s something surreal about these behind the scenes photos from our holiday catalog shoot in Morocco.  The lighting, the colors, the vast open landscape, it almost seems like a different planet… where our team became desert warriors on a mission to shoot a beautiful catalog.

Store Style for Fall

A great batch of photos from our various store gals showing looks they love for fall!

Love this look of the extreme velvet flares worn with the 2-pocket sheer crop top over the glitter mesh layering top.

The americana sweater jumper looks so cute with the printed thermal cropped bralette, fringe and feather hair clip and textured tall sock.

I love how she dressed up the velvet overalls with the pretty gini lace top and leopard clutch.

Everything about this look rocks! The lace bell bottom, the lovebug thermal layered over the floral burnout henley, the chainmail bib necklace and the hair!

Perfect fall look: the gypsy lover maxi skirt, graphic henley, slouchy velvet blazer and brit boot (and Dillinger!).

We love layering with the maxi robe! Pictured is the moon duster maxi worn over the swiss dot seamless slip with a scarf.

A great boho look: the extreme vintage flare, pleated lace trim crop top and zigzag print turban.

Or for a chillier day, the extreme vintage flare with the cannaregio mesh top, floral woven pullover and velvet turban.

You can wear a sleeveless dress in fall! Just add a layering top like the dotted lace tee underneath! Looks extra cute with the knitted ranger hat.

You can never have too many layers! The lovebug thermal, crochet back plaid button-down, denim shirt, margarita texture scarf, vegan leather shorts, floral tight and hacienda lace-up boot.

The color of this cashmere shrug cardigan is gorgeous! Looks lovely with the extreme velvet flares.

You all look amazing ladies!

Office Style: Store Managers

This week the office has been very full! All of our store managers have come into town for workshops and meetings that are going on at the home office. As they rotate throughout the building you can’t help but notice the beautiful fashions they showed up in. Many have on Free People pieces, and it’s so fun to see how they interpret the items for themselves. True to Free People spirit, there’s a lot of flowing bohemian looks, gypsy-like patterns, and intricate crochet/lace. It’s not often that we get to have these ladies around, so we snapped their style while we could. Enjoy!
