Valentine’s Day Styling for Each Girl

With Valentine’s Day just a week away, we got to thinking about our different fp girls and how they’d style their Valentine’s Day outfits and spend their evening!

Behind the Scenes: Valentine’s Day Special Shoot!

The other day I hung out in the studio for a bit while our team did a special Valentine’s Day shoot with model Linda Vojtova. It was such a fun shoot with candy and flower props, and Linda was kind enough to answer a few questions for the blog! Read More

Free People Walnut Street Opening

Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia.  We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place.  If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!

The upstairs fitting room area is cozy and tranquil – I literally could live here. The fitting rooms were painted by five of our amazing fp girls, who made them truly special and unique.

Yummy food from Steven Starr Restaurants and Root, Snap & Rhuby drinks from Art in the Age – the Root and ginger beer was to die for!

I adore the brick wall and necklaces hanging from nails – I bought one of these zodiac necklaces – you can only find them in our stores! I also love the falling whistles.

Store Openings and Events This Weekend!

The day is finally here! We will be heading over to our brand new Philly store in a little bit for a private celebration, and the doors officially open tomorrow morning at 10am! The store is full of special touches – one thing I’m excited to see, is some of our incredibly talented fp girls painted the walls of the dressing rooms. From what I’ve seen in photos (above right), they look incredible. I also can’t wait to see the Love Letters installation, made up of all the amazing letters you guys sent us! And the necklaces pictured above were made by local jewelry designer and friend of fp, Sarah Lewis, who specially designed them to represent our Candy, Lou, Meadow and Ginger fp girls! I’ll take some photos of the store tonight so stay tuned for a peek at the store tomorrow :)

The Year of the Dragon

Images of the Chinese new year celebrations are always so incredible. I love that they take each new year and the symbolism behind it so seriously. 2012 is the year of the dragon – a symbol of power, strength and luck…a year to take control and breathe fiery life into everything you do.

Event tomorrow at FP Costa Mesa!

Come celebrate the new year AND the Year of The Dragon at Free People South Coast plaza! We will be having a special Lunar New Year celebration tomorrow, Saturday January 21st, 10am – 1pm.

What better way to kick off the new year then to refresh your wardrobe or try a style you’ve never dared to try before! We will be partnering with our lovely neighbors, AVEDA, to help you achieve the look you’re going for!

Of course there will be yummy treats for you to snack on while we style you from head to toe AND a gift from AVEDA with every purchase (while supplies last).

When you’re done with us go next door and let the ladies at AVEDA give you a whole new makeover!

We’ll see you there!
