Style File: Creative Director

This week’s Style File is your very own Free People Creative Director! She’s a boho Americana beauty, the perfect 4th of July inspiration. From peasant tops, to vintage dresses, cowboy boots, and perfect hippie denim, she has a lot to wow with. Check out her week in style, and you’ll understand immediately why we’re all so infatuated with her here at the home offices.

I love any piece of clothing reminiscence of the Victorian period. I am better at dressing down so I often throw on a dress with my old, staple Frye boots and denim shirt.

This a Liz Claiborne denim jumpsuit from the late 80s. I can only wear it with high, high heels like these americana boots from Jeffrey Campbell

I think dogs are the best accessory.  We have many dogs in our office to help anyone complete their look. The vest is a great gift from a fellow colleague. I am known for being the most patriotic person in our office — I could probably wear denim on denim and some form of red, white and blue everyday. And I will probably still be wearing denim on denim and some form of red, white and blue when I am 80 if I am lucky.

Overalls are a big favorite! I love pieces designed for a utilitarian purpose. My family moved to Ohio when I was 15 and I always loved seeing all the farmers in their amazingly worn overalls. I feel most comfortable as a tomboy, but I try hard to mix in some feminine touches here and there.

i have been a fan of free peple for a very long time and have always admired her clothing, always looking out for her in the office style posts since our tastes are similiar. Little did I know that when I would check the blog today I would see the free people creative director wearing the exact same Liz Claiborne jumpsuit that I bought at my most recent trip to the salvation army!!!!! I love this jumpsuit even more now, though i wear mine with red converse and not her amazing litas. Printing out this post and saving it forever–Jordan :)
