Although I can’t afford much of their clothes, I absolutely ah-dore everything Free People. It’s a very cool, bohemian brand with a glam edge to it. I specifically like the brand because of the colors it uses and for the extravagance of their seasonal catalogs.
I just recently got mine sent to me in the mail and I started looking through it as soon as I could. I was definitely not disappointed! Like always the models are gorgeous, the clothes are incredible and the styling is out of this world. The theme of the catalog was A Fairy Tale Holiday which is perfect for the brand because of the light colors it uses and the extra touches of sparkle you may notice here and there.
One this that stood out for me in this collection in specific was their elaborate jewelry! I don’t ever remember Free People designing such bold and elegant pieces. I was happily surprised. I wish the prices were lower so I could purchase them all! One of the necklaces is nearly $1,000!!
Yesterday I had my third precollege class at The Fashion Institute of Technology and it is just amazing. I love going so much and now that I take the class I look forward to Saturday’s more than ever! I think it’s just the fact that I can dress however I want and be in the city all day. I learn so many new things about designers and the market that my brain can barely keep!
During class yesterday we took a field trip to the ever-so-urban Meatpacking District. There, we split up into small groups and wandered 14th street. We were encouraged to stop in all of the couture boutiques and look around at all of the stuff that was once on the runway.
My group went to Moschino and Alexander McQueen and a huge thrift store! I fell in love with every single garment in Moschino. Everything from the shapes to the material to the colors were absolutely stunning; they balanced girly with edgy perfectly. The Alexander McQueen boutique was another world entirely. It was set up like a museum, I didn’t know if I was allowed to touch any of it! I was in awe at everything I saw; I had to snap some pictures. The thrift store was super chic with vendors that sold records to vendors that sold bracelets made of cutlery. There were racks of vintage furs and old band tees and everything you could imagine. I found these two super cute hand made rings and I loved them so much I had to buy one!
We all met together in the Chelsea Markets, which was adorably decorated for halloween with spiderwebs and ghosts hanging from the ceiling and purple lights! Oh, how I love the city.
We might be going to SoHo next week! AH I’m beyonndd excited!
