We've always loved Free People, the clothing line for aspiring suburban hippies. More spirited than Lux and not grown-up as J. Crew, the brand is a great alternative for those who favor a meadow-bohemian aesthetic (or, as Faran puts it, "For those who want to dress like '90s Winona.") But for us, Free People has always been limited to catalog and online shopping - the chain's only retail spaces are located in suburban malls (and crowded Urbans, and packed Bloomingdale's.) That's why we couldn't have been more ecstatic when the company announced plans for its first-ever Manhattan store. The two-level space is set to debut in the Flatiron District this December, just in time for some reckless Holiday splurging. After all, who doesn't want to look like Joan Baez for Christmas? --SARAH MUEHLBAUER
