Imagine my surprise when the doorbell rang and a package appeared. My husband said, “It’s from Free People.”
I replied, “I haven’t ordered anything from Free People.”
He smirked and said, “So, what? They’re now just sending you stuff for free?”
I ignored him and examined the box. I figured it was probably some sort of mistake. But then I noticed that the package was not exactly from Free People. The label said FP Me. My heart jumped. FP Me is a fun community on the Free People website. You can upload pictures of yourself wearing Free People outfits. They post them on the product pages. It is really cool to see how different people have styled their clothing. I am an addict!
I like to share my photos so people can get a good idea of what the piece of clothing looks like on the average girl.
I gently cut the box open. I noticed a stick peeking out at me amongst the tissue paper. Curiouser. I pulled on it. Out came this flag! Isn’t it the sweetest? I love the creativity.
I told my husband, “They sent me a flag!”
I was very excited.
But there was more.
Inside the box was a little pouch. It had a note attached that said, “Thank you from Free People for inspiring The FP Me Community with your amazing style pics…” Awwww… So sweet. And I am very flattered.
I opened the pouch. Inside was a necklace I had been coveting. It is called Pewter Short Chain Collar. I was so excited! I love it! It was so unexpected and truly made my week.
My husband was speechless.
I told him, “Yes, they are now sending me stuff for free.” I laughed with delight. It was awesome!
I am styling it here. I am wearing it with the Free People Miles of Henley dress in rust orange (I could not resist a different color).
Thank you so much Free People! Thank you to the wonderful community at Free People Me! This was so very exciting and delightful! Free People has a loyal customer for life, in me.
Have you uploaded a picture to FP Me?
P.S. Yes, that is our new library ladder we installed during our recent home facelift! More pics and info to come. Have a great day!
