It’s come to that season where gift giving is on everyone’s mind and we always need a helping hand in knowing what special items are out there. We went around our home office and asked our seniors what items they are all about this Fall.
Here they tell us what item they love from out Fall collection
Milan’s fashion week has come to a close and I’ve been scrolling through the shows for inspiration. It was bright and glitzy, everything that you would expect from a city that enjoys the finest things in life.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Marni, there’s something so incredibly quirky going on with it aesthetics; whether it’s the unique colour palette or the juxtaposition of ad-hoc accessories against geometric prints. In this collection I was seeing a little touch of 60’s housewife which worked in a weird kind of way – that’s what to expect from Consuelo Castiglioni.
Roberto Cavalli’s show brought glitz to my eyes the artisanship won me. The collection seemed like it belonged at the couture shows at times. I loved the contrast of gold with leopard and florals against the black. It was a dream to look at.
Day by day I’m so impressed by all of the amazing fashion I come across here at the office. Everywhere there are items that make you want to melt. The styling is so fresh. I find myself staring just taking in the aesthetic of it all.
She was a little camera shy, but I had to capture this necklace for you all. How amazing?!
I love how she knotted the dress and wore it with printed boots to give this look a laidback feel.
This crazy mix match of prints is so daring and perfect. I love how the prints have a funky feel yet the look remains retro and feminine overall.
How stylish is this pairing of the ruffle legging with chambray and booties?
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!
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.
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.’”
It’s looking like it will be a beautiful (almost)fall weekend in Philly! We have fun events going on in a few of our stores, including one at our nearby Ardmore store with a prize that involves yours truly… ;)

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!
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!
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.
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.
