Can you keep a secret? Good, because I can’t! Free People is having an amazing contest right now! In the Free People Fall 2018 Win Your Wishlist contest some lucky duck is going to win a $1,000 Free People gift card and a travel package of your choice!
Not that I’m biased (I’m totally biased) but wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone from this community won? To help you prep, I’ve put together some of my latest Free People wishlist choices and then I hope you’ll share yours in the comments too! Let’s enter, and let’s win!!
In all honesty, even with a very generous $1,000 Free People gift card in my hot little hands, I’m not sure I could whittle down my wishlist to under $1k. There is just too much great stuff at FP right now!
No Free People wishlist is complete without dresses. The Free People Fall 2018 Win Your Wishlist contest has me thinking about all the pretty dresses! Right now, there are lots and lots of Free People dresses I’d love to own!! Day dresses. Night-out dresses. And of course, party dresses! During a recent store visit I tried on and fell in love with several dresses. I love the easily-layerable Glimmering Lights Mini Dress ($168) and Pirouette Lace Dress ($148), both of which seem ready for a moto jacket or sweater jacket over them. The Love of My Life Midi Dress ($108) comes in more colors for Winter and looks great over a turtleneck. On the Stephanie Mod Dress ($108) you’ll find a great neckline and cool pattern that works perfectly with over-the-knee boots.
Then, there are the more glam options. I’m seriously considering Temecula Maxi Dress ($250) for my rehearsal dinner next Summer. It reminds me so much of a beautiful Temperley London dress I missed out on a couple of years ago and I love the patterns! The Crystal Clear Mini Dress ($168) is in the running for New Year’s Eve. Meanwhile the Night Shimmers Mini Dress ($108) looks perfect for my friend Danielle’s annual ‘Naughty Elf’ holiday party. (But ohhhh which color to get when they’re all great??) I can’t forget to mention the stunning Essie Maxi Dress ($278), which I tried on in the copper and fell in love with. What a gorgeous dress this is — and is the trend right now, you can wear an oversized sweater over this and make it a work dress!
I have many more dress options in the shoppable boutique at the end of this post.
What pairs well with a pretty dress? This time of year, a lovely sweater, cardigan, jacket or coat of course! It’s hard to beat Free People’s sweaters. They have mastered the art of the oversized, the comfy, and the warm. As well as the ridiculous.
I can’t think of many cardigans I’d rather wrap myself up in than the Kota Belted Cardi Sweater ($650)! If I win the Free People Fall 2018 Win Your Wishlist contest consider that cardigan mine! And if not, the Phantom Cardi ($148) is a solid second choice.
Then there are Free People’s lovely, lovely coats. If anyone could make me fall for a Fitted Velvet Military Jacket ($198), it’s them! Ditto a purpleish-grey faux fur coat, a floral puffer jacket, a patterned teddy coat and an oversized striped blanket coat. Anywhere else, these words wouldn’t make sense and these products would elicit a wtf reaction. Somehow, at Free People and Free People alone it all works and makes perfect sense! Not only does it work, it looks good!
If you’re missing Anthropologie’s more fantastical coats the Out With a Bang Coat ($500), the Brooke Jacket ($228), the Songbird Patched Coat ($228) or the Prairie Rose Jacket ($498) may invigorate you! I have more coat and sweater options from Free People in the shoppable boutique at the end of this post.
To finish off my wishlist-winning look I’d love a beautiful bag (or five!) to choose from. Although Free People’s bags can range wildly in prices they have such a fantastic selection of options under $100, which I’ll focus on for this post!
The latest Free People bag to make my closet is the satisfyingly classic yet trendy Erin Top Handle Crossbody ($68). It comes in three lovely colors. I found myself most drawn to the sultry maroon in-store, but if I won the Free People Fall 2018 Win Your Wishlist contest, I’d totally buy the other two colors too. One can never have enough bag options, right?
These under $100 bags make such great gift ideas! Some of my friends and family might not buy a smaller bag on their own, but would happily accept one as a gift. I’m surprised by how much use I get out of these small to medium-sized bags! In addition to cute bags Free People has great bag accessories like tassels and such which also make brilliant gift ideas, stocking stuffers and Yankee Swap gift ideas.
There were other bags tempting me in-store too. It was a tough choice between the Erin Top Handle I bought, the Lisha Top Handle Clutch ($68, shown above in slate blue), the Mini Suitcase Croc Bag ($68, also comes in a snakeskin pattern) and the Charlotte Top Handle Crossbody ($58). Which of these bags would you choose in my shoes?
The truth is, it would be overwhelming to try to cover my myriad of wishlist items in one post! We haven’t even touched on jewelry, bras, intimates, or shoes and boots here! So, I invite you to take a look at this recent Free People post where I covered some of those options, and come back on Friday for the possibility of a very special FP promo.
In the meantime, you can also check out Free People’s extra 25% off sale promo this weekend! Or peruse the November collection.
