I've always been a big Free People follower and fan. While living in Los Angeles, the closest FP store was a solid hour drive from my house - not close enough. Yet I would absolutely make the trek and just admire the whole place. What an exciting thing for me when I moved to Atlanta to be closer to not one, but two FP stores (a 2nd location in Lenox Square). I've spent MUCH of my time at Free People White Provisions (& not just because it's my sister's workplace), but because it just is the best of the best - the location, the store and the people. As a freestanding store, FP White Provisions sits on the westside near great spots like Star Provisions, Billy Reid, Yeah Burger and more. It is the type of spot that, to me, is both easily accessible and in a fun, hip shopping center.
It goes without saying that I would be perfectly content with each and every piece from this store in my closet. And with their weekly shipments, this feeling never stops. Aside from the unbelievable selection of clothes,
FP White Provisions has an all-star team.
Store Manager, Kristina, who is just the bees knees.
Assistant Store Manager, Emma (sister), who once you meet you know she was born to work there.
Visual Manager, Raven ; the word cool is an understatement to describe this lady (style file no.1).
Sr. Stylist, Alissa, who has a eye for style like no one else - make an appointment with her (firstname.lastname@example.org) - you will not regret it.
Although you imagine Free People as strictly a clothing/accessories store - it is MUCH more than that. These ladies throw crazy-awesome monthly store events - the best in all of Free People land, in fact.
TO NAME A FEW:
Sunday morning "Tough Love Yoga"
Bollywood dancing (I attended and it was amazing)
Local style blogger events
Hipster Gardner tutorials
.....and this list goes on.
