Free People Comes To Calgary

Some dangerously good news for YYC came down this week: Free People will open one of its first Canadian boutiques in Chinook Centre at the end of August. The opening is tentatively set for Aug. 31.

That’s so good for my closet, hyper-dangerous for the wallet. I’m a bit nuts for this brand and its bohemian chic vibe. All the things I love are represented: lace, vintage pieces, ripped jeans, comfy tees, flowy dresses, great little ankle boots and tie-dye sports bras. I’m happy dancing just looking at the web site. It’s like a kid watching fireworks.

I picked out a few of my favourites, like these ripped jeans:


(*) A flowery cardigan for fall


(*) These vegan leather pants….

with this comfy tee:

Dangerous, indeed. What do you think? Anything you fancy?

By the way, if you’re looking for folk festival fashion inspiration, check out their festival shop! And if you don’t live in Calgary or Toronto, which will be home to the other Canadian location, you can order online. Canadian online customers will now be able to pay direct duty payment up front.
