In the last episode of American Horror Story : Coven , “The Sacred Taking”, Lily Rabe’s character Misty Day seeks help from the coven. Day believes she is being hunted by someone after they invaded her home in the swamps of Louisiana. Misty brings along Myrtle Snow ( Frances Conroy) and they take refuge at the coven where they are greeted by Cordelia played by Sarah Paulson. After a failed attempt to lead Fiona to her own death, the women are forced to work together due to a mysterious witch hunter murdering their next door neighbor. I won’t reveal the witch hunter since many people have not yet seen the show! I have prepared an everyday look that incorporated Misty Day’s night-gown featured on last week’s episode. Make sure to tune into American Horror Story : Coven tonight only on FX 9/10 p.m.
And remember to check out Free People in New Orleans!
The first photo is how the slip appeared on the show worn by Misty Day. The second photo is the Lucy Button Front Maxi Slip which is available now on http://www.freepeople.com
I will now show the reader how to create a casual look for the maxi even though it is versatile and can also be dressy. Now that it is winter, I have put together an outfit that could be worn right now depending on how cold it is in your city.
- In photo one are under garments/ accessories :
A necklace or a hat are items that could really tie a simple look together! Shown here is a great statement piece known as the Remi Super Fringe Statement piece. It not only flares out on your chest which is cool , but it is also a great color, so it can be worn with several different things! I personally love hats and this one happens to be my favorite! The Novelty Band Brimmed Hat is great for the winter season , but also can be worn in the summer at festivals or other fun gatherings. I also have a love for thigh high and knee socks , so it is no surprise I have chosen to go with the Ingle Tall Sock(mink). I think everyone should have a few pair of patterned socks in their wardrobe whether they are a neutral color as seen above or several different colors. Camisoles are essential during the winter season or any season really because they are great for a cool layering look or they simply keep you warmer. The Rise and Shine Cami(blackberry) is great for this purpose!
- In photo two are the essentials that tie everything together
The Cross My Heart Cami (snow) , is another camisole but it can be worn alone and still look great! It is embroidered with a diagonal design which helps it stand out. The FP Cord Super Flares(midnight) are awesome! Free People is known for their flares but this color seems to really stand out! And last but not least I chose to top off the look with the Hybrid Heel Boots. Not only are they a great color that will go with anything but they look great on. Our store manager here at the Free People New Orleans store wore them just last week at our Christmas party! They in fact looked amazing on her. :)
Thanks you for reading! New Post Next Wednesday 1/10/14!
For the last few months , Free People New Orleans has worked with some of the best stylists in the entertainment business. American Horror Story: Coven is an original FX series written by Ryan Murphy and produced by Brad Falchuk. Both Murphy and Falchuk are also known for Glee and Nip Tuck. The show has a star-studded cast that includes: Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sadibe,Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, and so many more. The synopsis of American Horror Story :Coven , focuses on a group of young witches who together learn from each other during dark times within their group. The coven began when descendants of Salem over three hundred years ago migrated to New Orleans creating the school “Miss Robichaux’s Academy”. The name Robichaux is very common within New Orleans culture, though it is spelled differently in a few instances.The academy is only 2 minutes away from Free People New Orleans! The show covers so many accurate interpretations of a city I call home. Many people in the city of New Orleans were so excited to find out that this season would be filmed in their city. Our culture is often portrayed as a southern city at the edge of the Mississippi River where people have an interesting accent and world renowned cuisine, but we represent so much more! The show allows locals to feel as though they’ve taken a step back in time. Whether the show is filmed in uptown New Orleans or the swamps right outside of the city, each scene is carefully depicted without being overdone. I encourage everyone to keep tuning in until this season is complete, I have a feeling the ending will be grand.
One of the most important elements in any television show is its wardrobe, and that is where Free People New Orleans comes in! Free People New Orleans is a fairly new addition to the wonderful company we all know . The store is located in the heart of New Orleans on Magazine street. Magazine street is known for its fashion as well as restaurants. Free People is no different when it comes to its staple in American fashion represented on this famous New Orleans street. A brief history of the company includes a walk down memory lane. Free People was created in the 1970s by Dick Hayne who is also the founder of the Urban Outfitters corporation. The setting of each store is mostly very intimate and is made to feel like a boutique. The store in New Orleans is quite small , but filled with so many wonderful items fit for any personality. Each piece captures an essence of time when people were more free-spirited and social media was not the topic of discussion. As a stylist at Free People New Orleans, I have entered a family of women who have a love for fashion and life. The moment we were introduced to the stylists of American Horror Story : Coven, we built a relationship with each of them. They are some of the nicest people we have ever worked with in the store. Many of the stylists visit our store a few times a week picking items for upcoming episodes which is always very exciting! I have had several of my friends as well as customers ask me where some of the wardrobe comes from and I was more than happy to tell them “From my store, Free People , of course!” I am not sure if it is the time our company was created or our New Orleanian twist on Free People style , but I am sure that both the elements of the show and our store have a symbiotic relationship. Free People New Orleans is proud to help capture the story of this amazing season of American Horror Story. In the photos below I have taken stills from episodes 1- 7 to show a few pieces created by Free People worn on the show. Each item was purchased at our store, but are available online and of course in your local Free People store. I encourage everyone to create a FP<3 me account on the Free people website!
