I'm looking in the mirror at Free People (obviously I spend my breaks at work trying on clothes) and I am seriously not expecting to like the dress I hesitantly pulled in to my fitting room. But I was determined to shake my comfort zone. Color is not my thing. Prints are not my thing. The two of them together is like the ultimate non-Austen situation. But I have to say, Free People figured out a way to make me love both. When you walk into a Free People store you immediately feel that connectedness that we miss so often in our modern consumer haste. It's refreshing, it's exciting, and it makes you fall in love with orange dresses with purple sunflowers on them.
