Holiday season is here, and after my seventh day in a row of work and my sudden developing of a head cold, I finally have a few minutes to relax and make a new post.
Fall is in full swing at Free People and we’ve been working like crazy people to prep for all the awesome stuff we’re getting in. From sending out online purchases and transferring out product to wholesale, to redesigning the whole floor layout and unpacking the 20 some boxes of shipment coming in twice a week, life feels like a blur…but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂 I also just got promoted to be a Manager in Training!! I’m so thrilled to join the management team and help guide our store down the path to a successful holiday season!!
The current trends for us are Grunge and Folk Tale and our store looks amazing! We’ve got tons of beautiful lace slips coming in, awesome knit ponchos, TONS of plaid, and beautiful leather hooded bomber jackets.
My all time favorite slip that we have is the French Courtship Slip which I styled for a shoot a few months ago (pic below). We now have it in a beautiful teal which I am so excited to own as well as pewter and it looks amazing under our shaggy knit sweaters that we have in tons of different colors for the holiday season 🙂
OH, and I can’t forget to mention our insanely beautiful Golden Quills Military Parka that I’m OBSESSED with and hope to someday own in black.
To wrap up this post, I thought I would mention the big event we’re having at Montgomery Mall this Saturday from 1 to 4pm! A blogger named Tammy, who was featured in Lucky Magazine as one of their most stylish bloggers, is coming by to style customers and take pictures of them to post on her blog! I will also be shooting pics during the event to feature customers on our Instagram account @FreePeopleBethesda!! I will also be helping customers with the uploading of these pics to their FP Me accounts which is like Instagram devoted to Free People style photographs! We will be having free refreshments and candy AND we will be having a raffle for a Free People gift card! If you’re in the area or looking for something to do this weekend, please stop by!! We would love to dress you up! 🙂
