Diary of a Virgo


So Coachella is next weekend and I’m pretty sure the girls will be Free Peopled out!  I will, of course, NOT being going…LOL but I can still swoon over these new Free People dresses that mix a bit of edge with a bit of romance.  I like to say my style is a little Bohemian chic, mixed with simple, classic, comfortable, timeless pieces which is exactly why I love FP.

I never knew that Free People started back in the 70’s so it’s sort of meant to be that they are one of my fav’s since I’m a ’70’s baby!  I am named after Angela Davis!  But what IS a cool fact is 2 of my other favorite brands, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie were formed from Free People’s original owners!  It all makes sense.

Even though (dare I say it? shhh…) they cater to the 20-something crowd, Free People makes it easy for all women to wear their clothes because the brand embodies femininity, and the free, creative spirits in this world.

“And that’s just who we wanted to reach: a 26-year-old girl, smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic. A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between.” – Free People

Well, I’m not 26 but everything else pretty much sums me up which is why I love this brand so much.  My mantra is as long as you know what style works for you, throw in some key, timeless pieces that aren’t too trendy and find clothes that fit your body, then it can work for any age.

In all honesty, I am getting to that stage in my life where I ask myself…”Is this ok for me to wear?  Is this appropriate?”  But that’s why I love this line so much because it allows me to express my feminine, carefree, romantic side and still be mom, wife, 40-something Fly Mommie.

Have fun, be free and live life with style and grace!
