Free People Opens at La Encantada

It’s no secret that La Encantada is a T-town treasure.

In terms of sophistication, it’s what elevates our Southern Arizona city. The experience and elegance of shopping and eating at La Encantada is, quite frankly, a freaking joy. Despite losses over the years of Louis Vuitton and Kate Spade, this shopping center works so hard to bring beautiful stores onto its grounds, recently welcoming West Elm, Madewell and Sundance.

So, even in a pandemic, the addition of the stylish new Free People store is something to relish. Taking over the vacated premises of Brooks Brothers, the posh new location boasts beautiful boho pieces that uphold the retailer’s vibe of “femininity, courage and spirit.”

The Free People shopper is “smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic,” according to the company’s website. “A girl who likes to keep busy and push life to its limits, with traveling and hanging out and everything in between.” They also mention a girl who is 26 years old, however, I refuse to believe that leaves out all the plus-26 women in this town who are very young-looking, stylish and amazing, as well!

Yellow Is NEVER Mellow

I used to think I couldn’t wear yellow. I’m pretty sure I was advised by one of those old Color Me Beautiful seminars – “You should never wear that color, you’re an Autumn!” Clearly, we were misguided in those days. Yellow, different tones of it, of course, is beautiful on everyone and the proof is in these pictures. This is a “look at me” color and the hue you pick when you want to stand out in a crowd. That said, as a spokesperson for pale and sometimes red-splotched skin, a self-tan couldn’t hurt when choosing this color.
