Store Style: The Extreme Vintage Flares

One of our favorite fashion trends going into fall is the wideleg pant. We have several wideleg styles right now, including one of my personal favorites, the extreme vintage flares (and their new cousin, the extreme corduroy flare!). These jeans can be a little intimidating if you don’t now how to style them, and luckily our store girls are here to help out with just that! They always have great styling ideas, and these photos demonstrate our love for another trend as well – the crop top! In particular, one of our newest, cutest ones – the thermal love crop top. We love pairing wideleg bottoms with cropped tops, adding extra layers over top or underneath as the weather gets cooler.

From San Jose: The extreme vintage flares worn with the thermal love crop top, arizona blanket wrap and jenoah floppy brim hat.

From Burlington, MA: the extreme vintage flares worn with the stripe cowl neck sweater.

Fall Displays are up in Free People Stores!

Our display team continues to blow my mind… for Fall they have turned our stores into an enchanted forest of color and texture.  Window screens crafted out of tree branches, sweater fragments, neon tape, yarn and other embellishments invite you into the store, where you are greeted by walls hung with embroidered canvas sacks, wooden flowers,  patchwork flannel canvases embellished with sequins and cutouts, and even a magical free people deer. Take a look!


One of our fp girls cut pieces of her own sweater to use in the branch screen, making a cute crop top!


I love the colorful branches! Some are wrapped in fabric or string and some are painted. There are so many different fun combinations you can try!



Some of the canvas sacks are stuffed with sticks, while others hang flat on the walls. I love the bright colors and patterns of the embroidery!




The detail in these sequin blanket canvases is incredible.



All the tiny details make me smile.


This might be my favorite part – wooden flowers are taped in rows to the walls with neon pink duct tape! I am definitely thinking about doing this at my apartment.



how amazing do the flowers look on the wood panels?!


One store made their own little “barn” with wood and drew on it with chalk :)


pretty rad bike.


And last but certainly not least… the deer! Each store has one, and it arrived at the store as a plain statue which they then paint and embellish.  So amazing! I love that each one is unique and special.




What do you guys think of the fall displays? What’s your favorite part?

Chicago Style File

Meet one of our store managers that works in our Chicago stores, I met up with her in Chicago to talk about fashion, style and blogs. She’s a cool cat with the sickest jewelry. Meet Alyssa and check out her lovely tumblr. When I met her, I was obsessed with her insane jewelry collection stacked on her hands, she let me know that some of it was made by her best friend who happens to have a trunk show in Chicago this weekend, if you’re there you should check it out!

About me:  My three most favorite feelings in the world are: feeling well-traveled, feeling inspired & feeling loved. Having the chance to travel is extremely exciting for me; I lust for the opportunity to explore the unfamiliar and seek as many new adventures as possible. Inspiration comes to me from most all places, especially travel, my friends, and blogging. Now, having my own blog, I’m challenged to come up with creative ways to give inspiration to all my readers as well. When I’m not working at Free People or blogging, I’m usually spending time with super sweet boyfriend, my family, or my amazing friends. I believe having a tight knit group of people who love and support you & who you love and support in return, is essential. My style icon has to be Erin Wasson, she has such a free & easy, relaxed look that I aspire to when I get dressed each morning! …she is totally a Free People girl too; she was just shopping in my store on Monday!
