Post image for off the record

what’s everyone up to this weekend? i am seeing one of my favorite bands, my morning jacket, at penn’s landing on sunday and i can’t wait!!! i have loved them for years and seeing them at this venue (which is pretty small) should be amazing. i haven’t seen them since bonnaroo ’08, when they released their last album evil urges,  so i’m curious to see what songs they play.

i’m trying to get there early to get good seats so i can take pics!

if i wasn’t doing that, i would probably take a day trip to bethel, new york, for their harvest festival. our vintage buyer told me about it – it takes place on sunday at the site of the original woodstock festival and there’s a farmers market,crafts, live music and more. sounds like so much fun!

more info here.

happy friday!

new mocs + sunflowers = happiness.

Love this idea! I used to work as a designer for Lands' End Catalog and every friday during the summer they would hold a huge Farmers Market at the Home Office! It was a great touch and perk for employees!
Lilianna -Aug 25, 2010, 7:28PM
I love love LOVE the mocs, but how are the soles? Do you think they'd stand up to some wear and tear? They're so adorable, but I want to make sure they'll last!

Post image for bbq at the navy yard!

we had a bbq here at the navy yard yesterday to celebrate the end of construction around the dry dock next to our building.  it looks so beautiful, they did an amazing job – and the party was awesome.  a live band playing country-tinged covers of classic songs, mini golf, tons of great food, and beautiful weather :)

i love the motorcuff thermal. i like the scoopneck as opposed to the crewneck from the similar thermal from last year. yes, please make it in more colors!!! i loved the colors from last year. they had that distressed, ovewashed effect--especially the overwashed black!

Post image for fall store displays!

like it or not, fall is just around the corner… which of course means new store displays! here are some shots of the new displays at our king of prussia, PA store. the rich colors and the added texture of the yarn is perfect for fall, bringing to mind a cozy knit sweater you just want to wrap yourself up in.

i love how the fabric seems to be dripping from the ceiling, like the store is oozing creativity.

you may recognize the fabric covered vases that have been pictured around our home office and at our costa mesa store.

amazing work again, guys!

Anthropologie sells these quilts as found objects in their stores. The prices range from $200-$300 which may be why Free People won't sell or give their sources for the quilts. There are many vendors on Etsy who sell kantha quilts and many who will see you a bundle of, say 10 for the price of one at Anthro. check it out: http://www.etsy.com/listing/127455855/10-wholesale-vintage-kantha-quilt-kantha?ref=shop_home_active If you can sew or are resourceful in finding someone who can make your curtain panels, Voila!

I also love the curtains you use in your dressing rooms. Where can I buy them? Are they for sale? Hope so. Love 'em.
