TheFashionerrd’s Very Own : Free Spiiirit Clothing Co.

FreeSpiritFinal

Free Spiiirit Clothing Co. was began by two women, myself (Jasmine A. Brown) and Philichell Pewitt-Hemphill. Here is our story….

Once upon a time I wanted a clothing line. Most of my life I knew I wanted to be involved in fashion in some sort of way, but I also wanted to help people. Around April of 2012, I decided I was going to go for it. I didn’t know exactly how it was going to happen or what the line would embody but I knew it was going to happen. Philichell and I began to get closer as friends over this time and I began to notice that she was a wondrous creative mind, with skills in crafts and DIY. I asked her to come on board and help me with the project. Time passes and Philichell comes upon this video series called TheSpiritScience on YouTube. She passed it along to me to watch as well. Watching this series changed our lives for the better and we began to adopt many of the ideologies that were purposed in the videos. Once enlightened, we wanted to enlighten others as much as possible. “Other people need to know about this stuff!” we said. And we began to think of ways we could spread the message. It came to us, to combine the clothing line and our newfound lifestyle as a way to express ourselves and enlighten the masses. Thus, we formed an equal partnership and Free Spiiirit was formed.

As with any business, teamwork makes the dream work and we needed a team to keep pushing this dream forward. We very carefully selected the best, brightest, most talented and fashionable people in our area. In support of the idea our friends decided to come together with us to form a team…the Free Spiiirit Tribe. We honed their specific talents to fit in the places that would benefit our growth most. Together….we will bring up the world, one vibration at a time.

My Top 5 Fall Essentials

Fall is coming! Well it may be full swing in other areas, but its barely arriving here in the South. Either way my wardrobe is excited for it. Here are a couple of my essentials for staying stylish in the changing season.

Maxi Skirts

I’m especially loving the styles that have shorter skirts with maxi sheer coverings like the uppermost pictured one. Maxi skirts are the perfect way to transition into cooler weather without leaving the relaxed styles of the spring and summer behind. Pair one with a sweater vest or tucked-in quarter sleeve top for a fall look with a relaxed vibe thats not too frumpy.

Tights

Tights, omg! Tights are a definite staple in a fall-ready wardrobe. Every girl should own at least one black pair of tights, but printed styles like the cosmic ones or the ones with crosses pictured above are all the rage this season as well. The right pair of tights can take a t-shirt from drab to chic in 30 seconds flat. Won’t catch me without a strong arsenal of these this season.

Brown Lipstick

This is probably my newest addition in regards to what I find essential for fall, but nevertheless, no less essential! I love brown lipstick! I have been using a shade closer to the more bronze-y one above, but as we get deeper into fall and the weather gets colder, i plan to shift to a shade similar to the darker brown color. Brown can be used on any skin color, but be careful not to get a shade that blends too closely to your skin tone as this can come off either as a nude, or a no-lip.

Cardigans 

Cardis! Gotta love cardis. There are so many reasons that cardigans are an essential for fall. Coming in so many varying lengths and thicknesses, they are a great way to keep warm on cooler days and can be a quick way to add some spunk to a basic outfit. They also can add a relaxed vibe to any outfit and take outfits that may be more late-summer appropriate into the fall.

Flats

Its not always quite cold enough for boots or shoes of that nature, but, for the most part, its time to kiss open-toed shoes goodbye! This is where flats come in. Cover your toes in style, whether you get a more basic pair that goes with everything or a funky printed pair. Flats come in so many shapes, styles, and varieties that i’s find one hard-pressed to get bored with them. I especially adore the spiked ones above. So stylish!

The best part of fall fashion I’ve taken note of thus far is….many of the essential styles are comfy! From the cardigans to the maxi skirts to the tights, all these things are built for cute-comfort. I look forward to embracing fall fashions and I want you guys to do the same!

Let me know how you feel about My Fall Essentials. Are they the same as yours? If not, what varies?

Love you guys! Until Next Time!
