Happy 10th Birthday Freepeople.com!

So much can change in one year… let alone ten.

It is absolutely mind boggling, actually.  Before 2004, there were no iPhones (who else had one of those Nokia phones with the colorful inter-changeable covers?).  There was no Facebook. There was no Instagram.  There was no gmail. And, there was no freepeople.com.

These are tools we use on a daily basis – and now, can you imagine life without them? With the technological advancements in recent history, things can change in the blink of an eye.  Even in the 5 years since I started working at Free People, our website has changed dramatically.  Here’s what the original website looked like (yes, it is drawn by hand):

It’s not just our website that has changed either – as a whole, the brand has gone through quite the evolution to become what it is today.  Here’s a video that takes a look back at Free People through the years!

Thank you Mikky Ekko for the beautiful music!

WE’RE ALL, AT HEART – FREE PEOPLE
I could seriously live in that music video, it’s darling. It makes me contemplate if I’m living the right life, making the right decisions, and doing what I really want to do? I love how free they were. Simply free people<3

As an over 45 woman, who has sometimes not embraced her bohemian past, I am soo happy to have found the FreePeople brand…I fully embrace my weird hippy past with the clothes, the brand inspires this fashionista everyday…Long Live FreePeople…
