As soon as we pulled up to our house in Palm Springs last week, one thing that immediately struck me was how beautiful the plant life was – and how different it was to what I’m used to on the East Coast. I’ve always had a thing for desert plants — and I have lots of little potted succulents scattered all around my home — but to see them actually growing from the ground was so cool. There were so many different kinds of cacti… all different shapes and colors; some with flowers, some without. It was all too gorgeous not to share with you all. Read More
I always love our April catalogs – it’s festival fashion at its best, and this year our team shot in Joshua Tree, California, setting the scene for four girls on a road trip through the desert. Read More
This January, we traveled to Palm Springs, CA to shoot our lookbook with Alexandra Spencer of 4th and Bleeker. In the book, she takes on the look of a domesticated 70’s wild child as she hangs by the pool and goes about her day in a 70’s ranch style home. The looks are filled with stacked sandals, flowing bohemian prints and ditzy patterns elevated with hard-edged suede, sequins, and funky shades. There’s no doubt this woman is beautifully Free People. Which look is your favorite?
So… who’s ready for a trip to Palm Springs?

Our new January Lookbook features the lovely Alexandra Spencer of 4th and Bleeker – and although she’s an Australia native, she rocks the California style flawlessly! Tan skin, sun-kissed hair, barely there cutoffs and daring mini dresses are some of her signatures, and she showcases her bold style through the amazing photography on her blog. Take a look, and read on to learn a little bit more about this beach babe!
My name is Alexandra Spencer and I live in Sydney/Los Angeles/ London. I’ve been living here for splitting time for 3 years!
On a typical day off, the first thing I do is check my emails! I’m usually wearing who knows!!?
My favorite coffee shop is in Sydney- Andys coffee, In LA – coffee bean on Hollywood and Orange and in London – the Marylebone Starbucks, and my parents make the best breakfast!
If I’m in the mood for some shopping, my destination of choice is Paris!! My favorite store is Balenciaga on Melrose! Last time I went there I bought a white shirt I’m too scared to wear.
Shopping can work up an appetite, and the best lunch is the Spaghetti at Chateau Marmont.
I love checking out MoMA for a little culture and inspiration, and no day is complete without Nathan Webster!
The last movie I saw was The Bourne Supremacy. It was last night in bed at The Ace, Palm Springs.
A typical night out on the town for me consists of great shoes and a lot of wine!
If I feel like going to a show, the best venue is definitely O2 Arena in London. The best show I ever saw there was I took my parents to see Arcade Fire.
If my life had a theme song, it would be Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones or Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel for a dramatic flashback montage.
On my iPod right now you’ll find a lot of Neil Young, I got a harmonica for Christmas and I’m driving my boyfriend crazy with it one Neil young song at a time!
Three words to describe my style are 4th, And, Bleeker!
This summer I’ll be in the South of France! And back to Rio.
NY or LA: NY in Spring, LA in the Summer
