Scanning through the same old online fashion shops/boutiques can certainly be a bore and a chore personally when it comes down to searching high and low for the perfect outfit; whether that be for a day out with friends, a night out on the town, a romantic meal for two, holiday or even a festival.
Yet I stumbled across the incredibly beautiful blogger Christina Topacio with her faultless fashion blog: ‘Profresh Style’. Completely falling in love with a design of a low cut maxi dress that she owned, I became intrigued to find out how much this dress is, and to see what the hype is around the online shop ‘Free People’. I can finally say I get the obsession and I’m all around in love with it.
‘Free People’ was founded by Dick Hayne in the 1970’s and opened the store to many within West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and then kicked off into other states as well as the UK. As it says on the website the demand was almost immediate. Keeping a theme throughout their designs with creativity and individuality, these pieces really do shine through femininity, courage and spirit and I honestly can’t believe it’s took me this long to find it.
(Above is Christina Topacio sporting the gorgeous Free People Maxi Dress I previously mentioned above. Unfortunately I cannot find the dress on the site, so if anyone knows where I can get this piece from or have seen it on the site with the price, please do hit the comment button and let me know, thanks!)
So I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone by telling you how much I have fell in love with this online fashion site, but also I thought it was perfect wear for festival season. Therefore I thought I’d treat you all to a fashion guide on festival wear with clothes from Free People.
Let’s start off with accessories:

This stunning embroidery and all over mirror embellishments will capture any fashionistas eye, with a suede trim and shoulder strap along with beading, it screams festival wear all over. With fabric lining and interior pockets it’s perfect for a hot summer weekend.

Honey tones are in this season and if you want to rock ‘that 70’s’ look nothing is better than a headscarf with good vibes to finish off your statement look.
// Dried Flower Tattoos
A free spirited look can be pulled off in no time. Although these temporary floral tattoos may be pricy, they are luxuriously hand drawn with handmade inspiration from sunny California on it’s side.
// Hayden Flatform Sandal
Okay, so not quite an accessory… yet I thought I’d throw them in anyway! These flatforms are a must buy for festival season, nothing is worse than having just wellies and sweating your socks in the heat due to you British people thinking it was going to rain all weekend. Come on, be optimistic guys.
