Celebrating the briskness that accompanies the arrival of fall…

Fresh neons and loud brights have been popping all over the office lately. We love a good statement neon top and fun bracelets. We’re even scooping up neon computer cases. How do we like it styled? We love pairing the shades back to black so they really pop. Check out how we’re wearing neon for spring. Read More
What I love about this week’s Style File is how natural and effortless she is. Her style is very laid back, and has a strong infusion of FP girl Lou (funny, Lou happens to be her pup’s name too). Her look is never over the top or flashy – just always put together and cute. She wears easy tees, and some fun statement pieces. It all comes together for a perfect “girl next door” kind of vibe.

Have you ever looked at a girl and thought, “there’s someone who knows what fashion is?” This week’s Style File is one of those girls. She’s not scared of an Avant Garde print or dressing head-to-toe in monochromatic tomato red. Her styling is spot on, the way one images a top fashion editor being styled. Although she always looks relaxed and comfortable, you just know that she’s into fashion. The sweater she throws on is perfectly nubby, and oh, that insanely cool necklace she’s wearing? It’s the logo for her friends’ young fashion line that is blowing up in the UK right now. Her style is flawless with great attention to detail. Look close and you’ll see a dreamy braid hidden in her waves. This girl knows how to dress herself.
Try a vintage-inspired floral dress like the Floral Shirt Tail Pucker Dress
Load on the rings, you can never have enough!
This week’s Style File always manages to look cute, but is never too fussy or over the top. Overall her looks have a simple beauty to them. There’s a definite Lou vibe coming through in the practical and cozy looks she gravitates towards. The look is usually centered around one knockout piece – a scarf, an awesome dress, or a pretty slip. She’ll then through the Lou vibe for a loop with some Candy thrown in there in either a feminine print or flirty lace and ruffles.
Throw a cozy sock on under your boots to live out the rest of the winter season.
We love colorful bracelets!

You can’t go wrong with an awesome leather cuff bracelet – check out the Turquoise Studded Belt Bracelet on our site right now.
This week’s style file is our Associate Buyer for accessories, who traveled to the US from England to work at Free People. Her style is quirky and avant garde. It’s full of color and pattern – often with a theme like neon or turquoise. I love the risks she takes. There’s no fear, and nothing is too outrageous. It is, however, always inspiring.
Get the look with our Heavy Knit Pieced Sweater in Mayan Blue.
The skull bracelet is available in FP stores!
This week in office style, it’s the boys vs. the girls. It’s amazing how much inspiration you can find getting passed back and forth between the two sexes. Who do you think rocks the styles best?? (boys on the left, girls on the right)
Winter has most definitely hit here in Philadelphia. We’re snuggling up in sweaters, jackets, and lush vests here at the office. I noticed a lot of café au lait hues mixed in amongst the stripes and fun patterns that we’re falling for.

She made this necklace! Sweet, right? I love how it plays together with the other textures of her outfit.
This weekend was my favorite kind of weekend. Sleep in Saturday morning, wake up bleary eyed and warm under my blankets, throw on some clothes and head to my nearby bar for a leisurely brunch. The fire is crackling and the burning wood is a welcome scent in the morning. Then we’re off on a mission to find a vintage camera strap for my new camera. I tried some of the local Old City boutiques but no luck at any of those (although I did walk out of one with a cozy new sweater with suede elbow patches). We stopped at a couple thrift and antique stores in the South Street/Bella Vista area before making our way back to Old City for the night – the photos below are from Anastacia’s Antiques, a pretty cool spot on Bainbridge between 6th and 7th, and we also stopped at Retrospect on South Street, which usually has some great vintage finds. The holidays have really taken over the city and I find myself craving a heavy snow fall… I love it when the streets are blanketed in white drifts of silence.
If any of you have any tips on where to find that elusive vintage camera strap… holler!
This week’s Style File is one of our adorable styling assistants. All day long she runs around the web studio making sure that looks get shot, that they look good, and that the process moves along in an organized smooth manner. It’s tough work, but she’s always cheery and relaxed. Having moved here from Austin, TX (jealous? I think so), maybe it’s her southern roots that spark this kind of attitude.
Her style on the other hand, does not remind me Austin. It’s much more sophisticated – tailored even – though, it, like her personality, has a touch of kookiness. It’s a pea coat and lady-like dress paired with…knee highs? You half expect it to be prim and proper from head-to-toe, but then she confuses you like that. It’s great! She doesn’t take herself too seriously but she has great taste in sophisticated pieces. Check it out…

The Free People Multi Stripe Pullover
In the switch from Spring to Summer I gave away a bunch of sweaters to make room in my dresser drawers. I’m now beginning to regret that decision as cooler air moves in and I’m getting bored with my current options. I’ve been looking around for pieces to fill the void, and The Weather Pattern: Fairisle and Nordic collection on the Free People website has some great options built in there. I’m loving these patterns and chunky knits.
