Oh, Austin…every time I visit, I fall in love all over again. With the city, with the music, with the food, and mostly, with the people. This year especially, we had the pleasure of making some really amazing friends. We had a packed schedule, shooting for various posts that will be coming to the blog this week and in the near future. Thursday and Friday we met some of the amazing female artists performing at the festival, shooting them in Free People for a feature that will be on the blog this week. On Friday morning, we met for breakfast with some of our Austin FP girls and lovely FP Me users at the delicious 24 Diner, before taking them out for a fun photo shoot that will be on the blog next week. Next, we braved the crowds on Sixth Street to capture some inspiring street style.
Friday evening was special. We gathered at a house in a quiet outer section of the city, a house with some of the coolest decor I’ve seen in a while. It was so authentically Austin, from the western and vintage elements, to the warm, welcoming people who lived there (thank you again for having us!). The reason for our gathering? An intimate acoustic jam session with Nicole Atkins and her band, Alana Amran, and fellow FP girl Jillian of the band Ruby The Hatchet. The vibe in that backyard, with wind chimes, wicker chairs, and music all around, could not have been more perfect. Afterwards, as the darkness set in, Ruby The Hatchet played a few dreamy, psychedelic tunes for the tiny crowd, beneath twinkling lights and prayer flags. Don’t worry, we captured this special evening on video – coming soon :).
And then there was Saturday. We awoke to drizzling rain and muggy warmth, and after breakfast (tacos of course, at Guero’s) and some vintage shopping at Uncommon Objects, Feathers and more, we made our way to the Renegade Craft Fair. A gathering of amazing makers

from near and far, the fair introduced us to some incredibly creative, inspiring people. We could have spent the whole day there, but next it was back to South Congress to meet with Lauren and Nicola of the blog Willow Wood Music. I can’t say enough good things about these amazing women and what they’re doing! More on them to come, for sure. We met at the Hotel San Jose, always one of my favorite spots to catch amazing bands during SXSW without too much of a crowd – their Saturday lineup was dynamite, with The Districts, PAPA, and one of my new favorites, Tinariwen. Our final night in Austin was spent just as it should be – hanging with some of the friends we made at the Renegade Craft Fair, listening to great music and talking into the early hours of the morning. Before we knew it, it was time to head to the airport and say goodbye to sweet, sweet Austin.
Till next year, SXSW!
