We all have them. They are the people who inspire our fashion choices and alter the way we see style.
They influence the way we dress and get us excited to experiment with trends, silhouettes, and color. They bring us out of our fashion comfort zones and motivate us to keep trying new things. They help guide us to find our own voice in fashion. They are our fashion icons.
In light of Valentine’s Day today (and the 2-year anniversary of FP Me!), I asked eleven Free People store gals from coast to coast who their FP Me style crush is… top secret until now! Below you will find a list of ladies whose style is unique to them and embodies confidence, positivity, and personality.
Casi, Social Media Manager of North LA District: “I love peeking at Kelli Murray’s FP Me page for inspiration! She absolutely nails “Simply FP” and always looks so cool, effortless and polished. She’s an incredibly talented artist and designer – her Instagram always keeps me so inspired! And, though she doesn’t have an FP Me yet, her sweet little girl, Rylee, has the most impeccable style as well. What can you say? The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!”
Jordan, Store Manager at Free People Topanga: “My FPMe crush is FP_baifraydej (Bailey). I’ve even been known to regram some of her photos to my store’s Instagram account because I find her styling and photos so inspirational! There’s a grittiness to her photos that I find appealing and her backdrops are always fantastic. Bailey rocks wild hair colors which, to me, is so bold and daring; paired with her cool girl styling… I can’t get enough!”
With over 1,100 followers and nearly 400 photos uploaded to FP Me, it’s no surprise that fp_april is three different girls’ style crush!
Halley, Senior Stylist at Free People Brentwood: “I’ve been following April for a while now – she’s a natural beauty that embodies the essence of the Free People girl, whose photos I regularly “heart”. April’s outfits are just the right amount of Meadow mixed with Ginger (and maybe a hint of Lou). Her style always is a little edgy, which I totally dig. Her photos are always inspiring, showcasing her FP style which is accessorized perfectly, but still looks comfortable. It’s fun keeping up with her adventurous life in the mountains of Colorado and traveling elsewhere, and her adorbs French bulldog isn’t too hard on the eyes either!”
Erica, Senior Visual Manager North LA & Lindsey, Senior Stylist at Free People Topanga: “My FP Me Style Crush has to be April from Aspen! All of her photos are so original and inspirational! Her style is unique, but always fit her element in Aspen or on her travels around the world. I love to see what looks she’s putting together because that girl has incredible style!”
FPKirby was another gal that was named a few times. She lives in Birmingham, AL, but is inspiring girls across the country.
Ryne, Store Manager at Free People Miami: “My FP Me style crush is FPKirby. Her style is effortlessly cool and very fashion forward.”
Amanda, Store Manager at Free People Brooklyn: “This was very hard to chose because there are so many stylish ladies on FP Me! But I chose FPKirby — she’s effortlessly cool and has that boyish, yet girly, edge which I can relate to in my own aesthetic.”
Leah, Senior Store Manager at Free People South Beach: “I’d have to say FP Me user Gypsylovinlight. Her style speaks so much to the bohemian beach culture; I love that her aesthetic is more simplistic with bold accents.”
Veronica, Manager at Free People Studio City: “My FPMe Style crush would have to be the lovely FP Casi. I have always loved her style pics and the first time I talked to her over the phone I was so excited to be chatting with “THE FP Casi.” Her style is bright, sweet, and effortlessly cool, just like her — and with those mile-long legs, who wouldn’t have a style crush on her?! To me, Casi’s style encapsulates Simply FP in a way that is inspiring and also attainable. Her modern Meadow looks work in the Mid-West and on the West-Coast, and I am definitely guilty of stealing a few. From her style pictures to her fabulous flat lays and her lust-worthy lifestyle posts, she is the Free People girl everyone would love to be, and be friends with as well! Thank you Casi for sharing your amazing talent with us, you are a shining star and you will always have my heart, on your FP Me pics and in the real world.”
Isabella, Senior Stylist at Free People Sherman Oaks: “My FPMe style crush is alexcentomo. I really admire her entire FP Me profile. I am inspired by everything, from her perfect outfitting to the beautiful, dreamy landscapes in her photographs. She has a very SimplyFP vibe that I am always striving for. I remember the first time I wore my Joe Lace Ups, I recreated one of her outfits from her FP Me profile. If only I could recreate that hair!”
Monica Jo, at Free People: “Is it cheating to say your best friend? I don’t think so if it’s true. Fpsofffffffff is my FP Me crush because she looks so effortlessly cool in every picture and makes the boots/shorts combination look good year-round. Sofia’s pictures are so detailed and beautiful. She and I have the same sense of style (though I might be a little more Lou) so I’m easily inspired when someone I know is wearing something I love in a killer way.”
