Store Style: Snow Angel

The latest trend we can’t get enough of is Snow Angel. With a new chilliness to the air and less hours of sunshine in the day, we’re brightening our spirits with shades of pink, ivory and icy blue and cozy, comfy textures that warm our souls. Winter doesn’t have to be about black, gray and deep tones, it can be as light and airy as the snow outside :)  This trend makes me think of sledding all day, rosy cheeks, icicles and candy canes!

Here are some of our beautiful store girls rocking the snow angel trend.

A dreamy shot… wearing the scallop strapless dress with a sweater and adorable faux fur arm warmers.

We adore the new romantics embellished romper! Worn here with the cropped cardigan and a beanie.


The embellished romper also looks awesome with the anita faux fur jacket!


On the left, the scallop lace tube dress with the amazing casablanca cape and faux fur arm warmers; on the right, the voile and lace slip worn with tights, legwarmers, the kimono cardigan and adorable ear flap beanie.


A perfect holiday party dress: the new romantics foiled maxi; get the goddess look by adding a head piece :)


LOVE this look: fp spun sequin knit short, tights, fp one smocked beaded bandeau, plaid shirt, beanie and arm warmers.


Here’s a thought – the embellished romper with the fp one smocked beaded bandeau over top! Accessorized with a beanie and bracelets.


Wear the sequin bodycon with the faux fur jacket, weather boots and floppy hat!


Love this pairing of embellished romper with the fairisle maxi cardigan over top!


This is a great idea – the fp one smocked beaded bandeau turned backwards, peeks out from under the lurex crochet top.


Snow Angel textures: fairisle triangle scarf, faux fur jacket, icy embellished dress, charm and chain cluster necklace, new romantics chiffon capelet.


Our much-loved voile and lace slip in all its pretty colorways.


And our favorite snow angel layering piece, the fp one smocked beaded bandeau!

Braving the Elements

Sometimes, as winter blankets our surroundings with its bitter chill, it’s tough to stay fashionably motivated. Rising out of bed in the morning involves a laborious upheaval from an all-too-comfortable toasty nest. The last thing you want to do is spend time, half-naked in a drafty bedroom, pulling an outfit together. It tends to turn into, “grab the first items in your drawer, and pile them on as fast as you can.”

To dress well as the air gets chillier though, we’ve come to realize that the under layer becomes less important. To pull off a great look that won’t leave you freezing, it’s all about that top winter layer. Here, some of the Free People girls show us how to move into the new season while keeping it fresh with a few of our favorite jackets. They remind us that a good scarf and hat can go a long way to trap in heat, and, don’t forget, the season’s must-have item – a pair of killer close-toed boots. All of these things – jacket, boots, and winter accessories – will help you bring those easy under layers into the new season.

So chill and relaxed! Our sweater designer is wearing: The Vintage Wine Leather Jacket, Pink Floyd Tee, Joan of Arctic Boot, Loop Knit Beanie, Crystal Honeycomb Bib necklace, and her own pants.




Oh yes, the jacket is reversible! This look on our New Romantics Design Assistant is perfect for heading out to a holiday party. She’s wearing: Ana’s Beaded Party Dress, FP One Reversible Fur Parka, Jonesy Heeled Hiker boots, and an old Free People necklace much like this one.



Our Visual Merchandiser is the master of layering and quirky details. She’s wearing: The Royal Blue PeacoatFP Skinny Cords, Lacy Layering Top, cropped tank like this one, La Bourse Plaid Button-Down, Northern Lights Boots, and the Regal Stone Necklace.



FP Julia is rocking an Americana look in our: IRO Denim Sherpa Jacket, Tory Fringe Boot, and upcoming American Flag Scarf.



Looking rock-n-roll ready, our Sample Coordinator is wearing: the Embellished Leather Jacket, Fishnet Long Sleeve Top, FP High Waisted Textured Shorts, London Opaque Tights, Vegan Docs, and the Eclipse Necklace.

From Our Store Girls: The Perfect Gifts

It’s the season for giving gifts, and we just launched our Holiday Boutiques last week full of great gift ideas. It can be a little overwhelming when it comes to picking out the perfect present, so we decided to ask our store ladies across the country what would be on their wishlist this year!

Haley, Farmington CT: Socks!

“I just bought both colors of the broken arrow soft socks! And i know once my sisters see them they’ll want them too, so I think they are the perfect gift/stocking stuffer!”

(I have to agree, I am wearing these socks today and they are the BEST.)

Brandi, Shrewsbury NJ: Bralettes

“Our bralettes are the best FP gift for the holiday season – they are the perfect add-on to any outfit for a pop of print or a dash of sparkle!”


Brooke, Tyson’s Corner VA: Multi Stripe Pullover, Lace Buttondown, Feather Hair Clip

“I love the idea of these three pieces as a gift together – each item is really unique and versatile or can be worn on its own; the pullover sweater with a pair of denim shorts and tights, the lace buttondown with a beautiful black skirt and the feather clip on any day of the week. But the beautiful thing is that if someone wanted to put a look together as a gift all of these items would look amazing put together.”


Raven, Atlanta GA: The Ruffle Legging

“The ruffle leggings are fun, funky and sexy! I think every lady should rock a pair of these.”


Morgan, Portland OR: Stockings for your stockings!

Socks are a great way to help your loved ones stay cozy this holiday season! Socks are one of life’s often over-looked luxuries that many don’t often splurge on for themselves.  Such an easy way to feel pampered and spoiled! Plus, sizing is usually not an issue :) ”



Niree, Hollywood CA:

“In the top photo I’m wearing our Faux Sheepskin Earmuffs and gloves – they are the best stocking stuffers and make great gifts, especially as it gets colder!

The second photo are my top gift giving picks! They include the Voile and Lace Slip, Floral Kimono, the MUST HAVE Miles of Lace Dress, the amazing Crafty Cuff Thermal in mustard, Legwarmers, Feather Hair Clips, the Chain Double Wrap Belt and an amazing Scarf. You can’t go wrong with any of these items!!!”

Thursday Poll: Head Pieces

I have to admit, when it comes to accessorizing, my head usually gets the least attention. Quick to throw on some rings or a dangly necklace, it rarely occurs to me to throw something on my head as well. BUT Free People has some of the coolest head pieces of seen of late, and I’m second guessing my accessory habits. I’m particularly drawn to the pieces with an Egyptian or 70’s vibe, but tell me – how would you top it off?

Office Style

Things felt pretty relaxed around the office today. I spotted some great patterns amongst the dressed down looks. Two ensembles roped in leather bottoms to spice up a normal sweater combo. And, as usual…we can’t stop with the shorts/tights combo – it’s just too comfortable and too good. One thing is for sure – we know how to do comfortable yet stylish, and here are my favorite looks that did just that today.

Check out the trims in this blouse. They remind me of friendship bracelets. What a great unexpected touch…
