I’ve lived in Philadelphia for nearly three months, and, while I won’t call myself a local, I feel as though I’ve finally begun the process of settling into something of a routine. Read More
I took so many photos of this one wall in our Philly store, I felt like I needed to give it its own post. There was so much to look at, it took my breath away. Artwork, potted plants, memorabilia from around the world had my eyes darting back and forth, snapping away with my camera trying to capture it all. One of the coolest parts? Some of the artwork is actually for sale!
Yesterday I left work around 5pm to head to our brand new store on Walnut Street in Philadelphia. We were having a private celebration for home office employees, family and friends before the doors officially opened this morning. From the moment I walked through the carved wooden door, I felt like I was in a very special place. If you live in the area, I definitely recommend making the trip to see the store in person – but if not, I hope these photos can do it some justice!

The upstairs fitting room area is cozy and tranquil – I literally could live here. The fitting rooms were painted by five of our amazing fp girls, who made them truly special and unique.
Intimates hang delicately on subtly sparkling walls.
How amazing are the patchwork rugs?! A great DIY project, perhaps…
I adore the brick wall and necklaces hanging from nails – I bought one of these zodiac necklaces – you can only find them in our stores! I also love the falling whistles.
Former Belle put on an awesome show!
It was such a magical night. Stay tuned for another post, on two of my favorite parts of the store!

The day is finally here! We will be heading over to our brand new Philly store in a little bit for a private celebration, and the doors officially open tomorrow morning at 10am! The store is full of special touches – one thing I’m excited to see, is some of our incredibly talented fp girls painted the walls of the dressing rooms. From what I’ve seen in photos (above right), they look incredible. I also can’t wait to see the Love Letters installation, made up of all the amazing letters you guys sent us! And the necklaces pictured above were made by local jewelry designer and friend of fp, Sarah Lewis, who specially designed them to represent our Candy, Lou, Meadow and Ginger fp girls! I’ll take some photos of the store tonight so stay tuned for a peek at the store tomorrow :)
Also opening tomorrow is Free People Boulder! Doors open at 10am, so if you’re in the area, stop by and check it out :) The photo above is one of our fp girls hand painting the storefront window!
