I’m not quite sure when it happened but suddenly I’m obsessed with Free People, a brand I in the past acknowledged as a good brand but never really delved into myself. Now I want everything. I’m constantly on their website, flipping through their catalogs even if it’s just for inspiration. Could it be that the micro tap shorts were my gateway drug? I’m not a big, buy it in multiple colors type person because I get distracted by other pretty things to buy but I have these suckers in both black & white. I’ve even been emailed from a reader to ask if I’d be willing to SELL my black pair. I declined of course. Writing this post and getting the links I realize they’ve FINALLY restocked the short in black…and a new color Pink Sand…I must have it.
So I took these pictures really quickly one day to enter a Free People twitter contest (that I didn’t win >_<) on sweater style. I had just snagged this sweater off HauteLook for $45 (retails $98/on sale for $68.60). I was a little put off when it arrived by it’s “oversizedness” but when I actually put it on over my tank/leggings to take this picture I was in love. I didn’t want to take it off. It’s soft, it hangs like a dream, and I can tie it (like pictured). Anything I can contort and reshape is a winner for me. Definitely recommend. Now that it’s on sale in black and white on ShopBop…do I dare buy it in multiple colors.
If you’re curious about which picture I submitted for the contest. It’s the second one. Sorry all these pictures kinda look the same. I didn’t mean to use them in a blog post, but I like them a lot and I didn’t want to waste it them so.
