feeling pretty

The pieces from the November Free People catalog would have me fp feeling pretty for sure. I most loving the floaty layered tulle maxi and the sheer top slips. I'm not sure exactly where my attraction to the Free People aesthetic is rooted. Maybe its in my hippie-esque up bringing, my attraction to vintage, my affinity for collecting things, mixed in with the bit of glam and glitz I always crave. Lately I've been looking to their creative styling for inspiration all to often. Their clothes aren't exactly in my current price bracket but I kind of feel that the essence of many of their designs can be found in thrift shops. I have a perfect example of a dress I bought at Salvation Army that looks just like a Free People dress on their site now that I have been meaning to share. That is not to discredit brand as the pieces I do have from them are some of my most treasured clothes. Most my Free People pieces have been collected in the same way as those thrift look-a-likes. Purchased in thrift shops, resale shops and at Loehmans because as I said, I'm broke. I wanted to show some of my favorites from the November catalog along with today's outfit which is heavily representative of my brand fascination.
