Up & Coming Trends: Exposed Bras

When I sat down with Free People’s President, Meg Hayne, she told me one of her favorite up and coming trends is the exposed bra. She loves lace detailing and caged bras especially!Meg said she loves not only low armholes, but also exaggerated low backs and even plunging necklines.The word that she used to describe this look is ‘provocative,’ but that is not to be confused with what she said is, “Some college girl who wants to wear a tight dress to show off her body. Not slutty.”24963324_001_e If you want to try this out, here are a few good options:

FPme #fallchallenge

I’m so excited to show you guys my entries for Free People’s FPme Fall Challenge! If you don’t know what FPme is, it’s Free People’s social community which allows girls to upload their own pictures of them styled in Free People clothing!–I like to think of it as an Instagram for Free People addicts like myself! I was invited by Free People to take part in their Fall Challenge which is to style their LA Nite Tank and Beanie.

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 12.31.38 PMMy first look was grunge inspired with a bohemian twist. I layered the Lucy Button Front Maxi Slip over the LA Nite Tank with another slip underneath the tank. I added the Vintage Jacquard Pants for an unexpected texture, along with the Donovan boots which add a toughness to the look, as does the Knit Hooded Denim Jacket. The last piece added to my look is the Antalya Coin Collar for depth and detail! You can heart this look HERE.

For my second look, I paired the LA Nite Tank with the Floral Flyaway Skirt (<3). I added my own knee-high boots, the Antalya Coin Collar, and Knit Hooded Denim Jacket for structure. You can heart this look HERE.

For my third look, I wore the LA Nite Tank, Vintage Jacquard Pants, and Donovan Boots, and added a chunky scarf and the FP One Golden Age Top backwards as a cardigan. You can heart this look HERE.

Building 25 & Beyond

Last week I was at the Free People Home Office in the Philly Navy Yard with three other women for a two day FPme experience. If you are not familiar, FPme is Free People’s new instagram-esque community on their iPhone app! –You can take pictures and tag what your wearing, as well as network with other Free People customers and employees! Follow me @forsurejadore1. We did everything from shopping at the Free People store on Walnut Street and doing a full on photoshoot in Rittenhouse Park to interviews, watching the Holiday fashion show and meeting the president, Meg Hayne (keep an eye out for my interview with her this week!).  Everything was documented and will be on the BLDG25 Blog this week! I can’t wait for you all to see it!!!
