I can vividly remember the first time I realized that Free People was a gem. I was maybe 7 years old, walking in a department store with my mother. I remember picking up a beautiful off-white and baby blue eyelet slip with pale green stitching, then turning around and finding another dress that I liked even more, thinking to myself “Oh my god what did I just discover? Do other people know about this secret gem? Or am I the only one?” I then vowed to myself that one day a piece of this gem would be mine.
Here is a video Free People posted this morning that inspired me.
