It’s time to set aside the thick socks and ankle boots that lingered in our closets over the past several months, making room for new shoes to accommodate the rising temperatures.
Our head intimates buyer is one stylish lady who knows what she likes and sticks to it. Two of those things definitely seem to be platform shoes and oversized tops. She pulls the two together in a modern hippie sort of way. It’s chic with free spirited accents, like a vintage print or edgy hand piece, thrown in. Her hair is almost always down and perfectly tousled to top off the look.
Stars & moons on her nails!
The fur bomber makes the look (similar style here).
<3 the wash on these jeans
What is everybody doing this weekend? It’s First Friday in Philly, it’s Fall – meaning fun stuff like apple picking and pumpkin carving – and Monday is a holiday (for some)!
We just launched this shoe lookbook on our website and I can’t stop looking at it. I love all the little scenarios they created, depicting pretty much everything I want to be doing this weekend – zipping around the city on a scooter or bike, chilling in the park with a book and a puppy, picking up groceries for a dinner party, hitting up a concert, or having brunch with a best friend or loved one.
Where will your feet take you this weekend??

Today our lovely lady of the week styled an outfit from the sample closet here at Free People. She decided to centralize the outfit around the Avenue West Chemise, her favorite piece of the moment, because she absolutely loves how pretty and versatile it is. She wanted to style it unbuttoned, and worn as a bed jacket today, but she said she would also wear it as a dress or with more layers in the fall if it were a piece in her own closet. “Not only is it versatile, but it’s versatile in two ways: day to night and summer to fall.”
She layered the chemise over her own jeans and a rocker style tank to play down its femininity and give the outfit some edge. The HIGH platform shoes in a nude pink color that she chose had that same balance of pretty vs. edgy. Then she mixed it all up by throwing some earthy flavor into the mix with a fringed suede shoulder bag. It’s unexpectedness kept the outfit interesting, and added a whole new level of detail. The whole look was topped off with simple jewelry, a long jade necklace, to avoid distracting from the elegant fringed chemise and the outfit’s other contrasting elements.
