For all of you in the Philadelphia area – you’ll want to head to our KOP store this Saturday from 11am-1pm!

The look with the most votes will get featured on the BLDG 25 blog, right here!

Get out to the store and show us what you got. Can’t wait to see all of the amazing styling ;)
Our brand-new and very first Las Vegas boutique opens today! We threw an opening bash last night with live music by Avalon Landing and styling by Lauren, Free People’s Art Director and Head Stylist. There was an amazing turnout flooding the store with fashionable women from far and wide. Fashion addicts that we are, we couldn’t help but snap some shots of our favorite looks…
These ladies drove all the way from Utah! #dedication
Not only is she an awesome fan for having driven all the way from Utah, but she also tried out the fishtail diy from last month’s guest post – so awesome!
Free People Las Vegas is opening this Friday!!! To celebrate, we’re having a special preview party tomorrow, November 10, from 4-7pm! Come check out our new digs at Fashion Show Mall and enjoy live music by Avalon Landing, while checking out the new merch and getting styling tips from our Art Director and lead stylist. There will be sweet treats provided by Retro Bakery and awesome goodie bags stuffed with jewelry by Wild & Free, too :)

Early Saturday morning I flew to Boston for our Holiday Crafting Party at Free People Cambridge. It was such an amazing day – we were blown away by the creativity of everyone who came to the event, and it was so great to just sit around a table, talking and crafting for a few hours! Here’s a photo diary of the day :)
It was an early flight…very early… but this sunrise made it ok.
Our Cambridge store is located at Harvard Square, a really cute little spot just outside Boston where Harvard University is located.
I loved these friendship bracelets one of our fp girls was rocking.
And this sick tattoo another fp girl drew herself!
Sweet Meghan, our Harvard-area stores manager.
Printed Kimono twins!
One of our crafters, Nicole, blew me away with her style and creativity! She made the following braided hat band, necklace and bracelet. And her rad printed jacket is actually a men’s shirt that she found in Africa – amazing.
Fall layering done well by Kerrin.
Friendship bracelet making :)
So many amazing holiday ornaments were made!
One girl used the embroidery thread and tied a bunch of tiny bows that she glued to the inside of the ornament – soooo beautiful.
Wouldn’t it be a sweet gift to put a ring or something small inside a homemade ornament?!?
Such a wonderful day :) Thank you so much to everyone who came, and to our Cambridge FP girls for being so amazing!
Would you guys be interested in having an event like this in your area? Let us know, maybe we’ll come to your hood next!
We have a very exciting event taking place this Saturday at our Cambridge store! I will be there from 12-3PM with lots of fun crafting supplies to make some of our favorite DIY projects from the blog! As the holidays approach, there’s really nothing better than crafting something for someone you love with your own two hands :)
We’ll have lots of fun supplies and embellishments but feel free to bring your own stuff too – maybe you have an old shirt or jeans that you want to spice up, or a Christmas stocking that you can personalize FP-style… the possibilities are endless :) Put your crafting cap on and come out and join us – you can RSVP on the facebook event page here.
I’ll have more info on one of the DIYs later today but here’s a little peek at what we’ll have on hand this weekend…
Hope to see you there!

From what I hear the opening event for our Atlanta store was a ton of fun! And from the looks of it, quite stylish as well :) I love seeing all these ladies rocking Free People!
The vivaldi voile and lace slip is such a great layering piece.
