The other day I hung out in the studio for a bit while our team did a specialValentine’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
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 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 :)
Also opening tomorrow is Free People Boulder! Doors open at 10am, so if you’re in the area, stop by and check it out :) The photo above is one of our fp girls hand painting the storefront window!
Lastly, this Saturday Free People Houston City Centre is turning 1 !! Stop by and enjoy snacks, cupcakes and beverages, a trunk show from jewelry designer ViaChrista Chains, gift cards and prizes for a night out in City Centre, and free fringe goodie bags for the first 50 attendees!
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.
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!

I’m so excited to share our January catalog video with you – I love this one :) Featuring Karlie Kloss in New York City and Jessica Hart in Los Angeles, edited by Swell. Song is “Can You See His Face” by Tezeo. Enjoy!
We had two reasons to celebrate today! First we had a birthday breakfast celebration for our amazing office coordinator, and then we had a baby shower at lunch for our email marketing manager who is expecting very soon. You ladies both rock!!
She loves scooters and scooter rallies, so one of our co-workers brought in this adorable Barbie scooter for her! I’m so jealous I never had one of these!
New Year’s Eve is a night to celebrate and pull out your finest. Why not go all out with a fancier drink than usual? Need inspiration? Here are three amazing-looking cocktails to bring in the New Year – shown in order of easiest to hardest by way of preparation. Read More
…and us bloggers got to go to our shoot with Sasha Pivovarova in NYC – definitely a highlight of the year!
We worked with so many beautiful models…
We debuted FP Spun and Vegan Leather, and launched a special line of Limited Edition Dresses! We celebrated with pop-up shops in NY and LA, where Jade Castrinos performed at our store.
We fell hard for extreme flares, monochromatic dressing, birkenstocks, turbans, sweater dressing, fancy collars, western boots, friendship bracelets and bright nails, flatforms, mixed prints, color pops, polka dots and more…
We were influenced by decades past…
…and by trends like mod and grunge.
We brought you festival coverage from Pitchfork and Outside Lands…
We shot our July catalog with Alexandra Valenti and the Happen-Ins, and we had such a great time we went back and threw a party to celebrate the catalog release! We also threw a party at our 5th ave store for Fashion’s Night Out and had a blast.
We made so many lovely blogger friends!
Many crafts were made, and we held our first crafting events in Cambridge and NYC!
And, some new furry faces popped up in the office :)
2011 was a good year :) Here’s to making the next one even better!
