Post image for DIY Inspiration with FP Bags!

I’ve seen a couple of amazing projects lately using Free People bags, I had to share!

One of our facebook fans shared this photo of a chair they had reupholstered using FP bags. BRILLIANT.

And a sweet little pillow and lampshade from one of our fp girls in Santa Monica! Love it!

The Marshal Islands had an army surplus supply store just off to the right of the airport. They sold some really old interesting things there. I did buy a lot ofvery old radios that were used in WWII. The radios were in awesome condition too. Anyone know of any wonderful places to shop for a few old military supplies?

You know that feeling? When you’re sick and your body is invaded – somehow disconnected… one minute you’re sweaty, and the next, shivering. You wait it out trying to get hold, but your head is somewhere in-between dreams and reality.

I’m just getting over being sick. It was a bug that really got a hold of my body and had my head spinning. It feels so good to be getting better – hope you’re all staying healthy!

Post image for Weekend Getaways: Camping

I have this sudden urge to go camping… I think its this time of year, it’s a little bit cooler out and I just want to wander, lose myself among tall trees, write in my journal, and wake up to watch the sun rise.

Post image for Style File: Senior Sweaters Designer

Funky jewelry – check. Little black boots – check. Great floppy hat – check again…

Our senior designer for sweaters here at Free People has a modern day rock star style. She’s a master of textures, and knows how to rock a great sweater outfit (as she should).  Just by looking at her style you can tell she’s an expert.

Although you’ll often find her in sweaters which are soft and cozy, there’s a great grunge quality to the way she dresses.  She’ll mix in tattered pieces and vintage tees while piling on jewelry for that right amount of edge. I especially love the feather earrings that she often wears. Not only are they sweet pieces, but she will only wear one at a time, and it looks awesome.

She has a great tattoo that says “feed the good” above a wolf. The words were inspired by a Native American folktale:

An old Cherokee told his grandson, ‘My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, & ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, & truth.’ The boy thought about it, and asked, ‘Grandfather, which wolf wins?’ The old man quietly replied, ‘The one you feed.’”

Such a good lesson for us all to remember!

Post image for Street Style: Sweater Dressing

Fall is creeping in, bringing with it crisper air, crunchy leaves and sweater season! We love the trend of sweater dressing from head-to-toe, outfitting yourself in bulky knits, cozy leggings, cute little sweater shorts and trading in summery maxis and rompers for sweater maxis and overalls. Our senior photographer captured some great sweater dressing street style inspiration right here at the Navy Yard!

I could live in the Americana Sweater Jumper all fall and winter long! It looks awesome over a seamless layering top with boots.

Here the comfy Poconos Sweater Legging and Easy Days Off-The-Shoulder Sweater are dressed up with a pair of funky platforms!

Double up by wearing the Vermont Knit Sweater Shorts over a pair of cozy leggings! Worn here with the lovebug thermal, fringe crossbody and Jonesy Heeled Hiker Boot.

We love layering a sweater maxi dress over a pretty, lacey maxi skirt! Worn with a bib necklace and platforms.

free-people-street-style

Love this casual-cool look of striped sweater shorts over tights with an oversized sweater and tall boots!

free-people-street-style

A look I will be wearing a lot this fall and winter – denim cutoffs over the Poconos Sweater Legging! Worn here with the flannel cuff thermal, crocheted plaid button down, brit boot and weekender bag (and a seriously rad van).

Shop all sweater dressing.

During every fashion week the streets come alive with bright colours, glorious prints and rich textures. The sidewalks come alive and show respect to high fashion. We headed to Lincoln centre to see what we could capture; here are some of our best shots of the day!

Post image for September 2011 Catalog Location: New Tripoli, PA

The location of our September catalog shoot set the mood perfectly – an 18th century Germanic house-mill called Oswald’s Mill, located in the Penn Dutch country of New Tripoli PA, it is the only known integrally built house-mill in the US. The house is furnished but has a ghostly feel, as if a family was living there years ago and one day just up and left, leaving everything behind. The decor has a colonial, early American feel that adds to the romance and intrigue of this book.

Post image for Festival Fashion at Outside Lands – Day Two

The weather could not have been better today at Outside Lands! Uncharacteristically, the sun was shining all day and burned through the San Francisco fog.  Also? Free People was everywhere! We ran into so many girls wearing FP duds and carrying our tote bags. Here’s a look at the fashion on day two shot by Erin of calivintage.com!

The striped lace inset top from last year!

Love this combo of leopard, fringe and our seed bead necklace.

It is a unique skirt, the favorite thing I own in my closet by far. It was a great buy, $60 from a small boutique in Santa Fe, New Mexico circa 2009

Tons of good fashion inspiration around the office today! From killer gladiator-style shorts to kooky sweaters and pretty prairie dresses I was deeply impressed. What’s your favorite look from the Free People team was wearing today?

Do you ever have a day where you don’t spend any money? For myself, it’s pretty rare, but when it does happen, I feel so fulfilled. Without money you have to think more. You have to cook for yourself, make your own coffee, and enjoy the people around you.

It’s not realistic to do every day, but for today, don’t spend a cent. You’ll notice those areas in life where you are spending frivolously, and you can learn from it to make some small changes in your daily habits. Perhaps you start bringing your lunch to work 3 days a week? Or, you ride your bike instead of taking the subway on weekends? In the long run, those few dollars saved will help you buy that big ticket item you’ve been dreaming about…wouldn’t you rather have that than a store-bought hoagie?

I really enjoy this blog, it's a lot of fun and very inspiring. However, it's the only part of Free People that I associate with anymore. I've always justified FP's prices one way or another. Better quality, more detail, hand crafted, unique, but recently the prices have become extreme. I can't even afford a t-shirt anymore. :(
Gwen -Aug 06, 2011, 10:38AM
How interesting are our differing lifestyles. I don't spend money more than 1--2 days per week, and that includes for gasoline!

Post image for Thursday Poll: Edition 141

On Tuesday you all got an introduction to our new capsule collection: FP Spun. In general, I’m a big fan of Free People’s crochet and knit pieces, so word of this collection got me very excited. The pieces are all crocheted or knit with elegant Italian yarns, shiny silk blends, or nubbed soft linens. Seeing the final results, I’m awed – every piece is a masterpiece. I think I know which my favorite is, but what do you all think?
