before my fp job interview

I confess, I am somewhat hesitant to post the following video, for a few reasons. It’s not the highest quality video we’ve taken here at Free People, and also, I don’t want to be too self-promoting. However, I have had much encouragement from everyone at the home office to post it up, as everyone here finds it pretty hilarious – and it is kind of funny…
So here it is, me, very nervously getting myself ready for my interview at Free People trying to get the internship I have now. Cutting up one of the shirts I made and putting some finishing touches on it is my big sister Doub.
