Office Style: Meadow

Today, I went around the office and captured Meadow looks. Sadly, I think that the true, true Meadow comes out in warmer weather, so I didn’t find a ton of it on this rainy Philadelphia day. There were hints of her though! Even in the dreariest of conditions, we can’t help but pull out our bohemian touches – flowing bed jackets, paisley prints, lace detailing, and cozy knits among our favorites. Now, if only it were nice enough to lie outside in a sunny field…

Meadow loves intricate detailing like fine-touched eyelets. Pick up our Daisy Eyelet Button Down if you’re into the look.

When Meadow wears cardigans, she does them long and flowing. Get the look with our Ribbed Long Cashmere Cardigan and Jenny Floppy Hat.

Thursday Poll: February Catalog

Our February Catalog is here, and this time it stars none other than the fiercely beautiful, Freja Beha Erichsen! For the book’s concept, Freja takes on each of the brand’s girl types: Candy, Meadow, Ginger, Lou, and Molly. The fashion changes with each girl, from Lou’s graphic tees and sporty touches, to Candy’s polar opposite frilly and flirty dresses. Each girl has her own unique style, but unanimous across the board is that free-spirited quality possessed by every Free People woman. Photographer Joshua Allen captured Freja as she delved into each girl type and embodied what makes them strong, confident, and stylish figures.

Which girl do you most identify with from the catalog?

Style File: Meadow Design Assistant

Style file this week is dedicated to the design assistant on our meadow team. She’s a fabulous dresser with extremely feminine taste. Dresses are her specialty, and her collection is out of this world. Delicate lace, dainty peter pan collars, and retro polka dots are just the details that showed up in her numbers this week. Everything she wears feels like something you’ve never seen before – it looks like a vintage piece with a great story behind it, or a uniquely handmade piece. It’s like she finds special pieces and gives them a home. Her collection of feminine ankle socks is another great aspect to her style. She’s often wearing a pair, and manages to pull off the look so well. No doubt, she has a great wardrobe, and her styling is on point, but her best accessory is the huge smile that lights up every outfit she wears and brings it to life.


I fell in love with delicate beauty of this lace on her vintage dress!

Style File: Edition 3

Quirky, creative, lovable, giggly, cool…these are all words to describe the assistant designer for Meadow here at Free People who is also this week’s Style File Girl. And boy does this girl have style. I envy how creatively cool she looks each day, and it never appears to take her much effort.  She alters pieces in unique ways, thrifts like it’s her job (okay, it partly is), and throws in unexpected extraneous items to pull an outfit together. It’s tough to explain why exactly it all works, so I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. Check out what she wore this week…



Even though her look changes from day to day she certainly has her favorite accessories. I’m a big fan of the watch she always wears.


And what about those tattoos?

Her favorite is the acorn (far left) inspired by her childhood self who made her grandmother watch Peter Pan twice a day, every day. The acorn is from the version with real people in which Wendy asks Peter for a kiss, but since he’s just a boy, he doesn’t know what that is and gives her an acorn. Later on in the movie she’s struck down by an arrow, but you later come to find out the arrow pierced the acorn instead. It saved her life.


The creative spirit that she uses in her appearance is just as apparent in her job as the assistant designer on team Meadow. She pumps out awesome piece after awesome piece, often inspired by vintage clothing that she picks apart, blogs, and her coworkers. This Wednesday she was working on updating sketches she presented for setup to meet the buyers’ and head designers’ requests. She now has to show the garments in flat form along with fabric swatches, body, and any artwork to be used in the piece. At the end of it all, she puts it together into a nice presentation so buyers can decide exactly what they’ll buy and how much.

The coolness doesn’t stop there. Her work space and home are just as one-of-a-kind as the outfits she wears and the creativity she brings to her job. I mean, who has a pregnant Barbie to accompany them at their desk every day? Safe to say, the space she inhabits is never boring.


And of course, I wouldn’t leave you all without a fun questionnaire. Time to let the woman speak for herself
