On Saturday, the Lumberjack, the brother and I went for a little expedition. I needed to open a bank account in the city, so we all piled into the car and went for an adventure. After we were finished, we decided to go look for giant stuffed pigs at the Sanrio store. After that, the boys wanted to go to the game store, and I wanted to check out Free People.
This dress is one of their summer offerings. It's a little bit blousey on top, with puffed sleeves, a slightly A-line skirt (with a little bit of tulle peeking out at the bottom!!) and a spectacular color. I saw it and fell deeply in love.
I wore it out Sunday to visit with an old friend, and found it to be another perfect weekend dress. Gotta have those, you know.
In general, I thought I wasn't much for the Free People aesthetic. But I actually find it sort of reminiscent of many of the styles I saw in Japan last year: romantic colors and materials, styling soft pieces with tough or rustic accessories, feminine, drapey and flattering cuts. All of these things I like.
Oh Free People. You can free me any day of the week.
