wouldn’t you like to own an item hand crafted or signed by one of your favorite musicians?
crafts for a cause is an online charity auction organized by binki shapiro of the band little joy. she gathered together a bunch of fellow musicians to craft items like tshirts, totebags, and artwork, or contribute photos and items – and it’s all up for bidding now here.
they may be a little pricey, but it’s for a good cause — all proceeds go towards relief efforts in haiti.

Who would have thought that Clogs could make such an impact on the fashion scene? They are the type of shoe I usually associated with Milkmaids and Amsterdam.
However, Karl Lagerfeld and Alexa Chung have caused a Storm in the market, by making The Clog look super cool. The models at Chanel’s Spring collection galloped down the runaway in these heavy footed clogs and Alexa has been seen looking mighty fine in them ever since.
We here at Free People fell in Love with them also. With this in mind I thought I would shine a light on the amazing selection we have here on the Free People site (click here). My favorite pair is the Charli Clog that I would wear with distressed boyfriend jeans, high-waisted skirts and pretty floral dresses. These are definitely the shoe off the summer!
the weather forecast for sxsw is looking beeeauuutiful! sunny skies and temperatures in the seventies – could it get any better than that?
with that in mind here is a suitcase of suggestions for what to bring if you’re heading to texas this week…straight from one of our experts who is going and has been there before:
first of all – pack light! bring a backpack. inside she recommends a pair of amazing, wear-anywhere jeans, easy lightweight tops and a good pair of boots and/or sandals. a breezy skirt or dress to wear during the day and into the night, and make sure to bring a light jacket because it gets chilly at night! i also threw in a bandana and a small bag that’s just big enough to hold a wallet, phone and camera for shows. sunglasses are a must and i never go anywhere without a journal – use it to keep track of shows and setlists! oh and the bathing suit in case you take a break and hit up barton springs, or one of the other awesome swimming holes austin has to offer.
