Free People: NEWS!





I am loving the new lookbook from Free People. Craving those ethnic prints and piles and piles of jewelry. And talk about some killer poses! As you know, I've been a Free People fan ever since it started. I drew inspiration from their catalogs throughout my teen years, never expecting that I'd land the cover of the Free People October '10 catalog, shot by my wonderful sister, Dylana Suarez (DREAM COME TRUE!!) I thank Free People for being one of the first brands to recognize me as a model and as a blogger.

Now, I'm so excited to announce that my amazing big sis, Dylana of the blog Color Me Nana, is going to be working as a stylist at Free People in Philadelphia!


I am so so proud of my big sis for landing this dream job at one of my absolute favorite brands. She is so perfect for Free People it's crazy! I'm going to miss her IMMENSELY!! She was the one who inspired me to create a blog in the first place and has helped me get to where I am today. I don't know what I'd do without her! Dy has been with me through the ups and downs all while giving me so much support and understanding. I'm going to miss seeing her everyday, but I know it's only going to bring us closer. Now you get the Suarez sister blogs from both an East and West Coast perspective! She's the best and I can't wait to see what she brings to Free People. I know it will be totally inspiring :)

This is the sweetest shoutout ever. I have no doubt Dylana will do a wonderful job.

ps, your word verification is requiring me to type "terdwort." is it immature that I find this hilarious?
