nicole, one of the fp girls who works in our soho, new york, store recently spent a semester at sea- during which she got to visit many amazing places all over the world. i can’t even imagine what a life-changing and invaluable experience that would be… if i make it to half of the places she visited in my life i would consider myself quite lucky. fortunately for us she took lots of photos and shared them with me for the blog!
spent the last couple of hours listening to lcd soundsystem sound-checking next door. torture, but also pretty cool. tried to sneak onto the tourbus or into the building as they were setting up… and failed. oh well, happy friday!
yep that’s right, LCD soundsystem is playing at the navy yard tonight! as i was walking into work this morning the tour bus pulled right into this parking lot in front of our building. how am i supposed to concentrate?
in honor of tonight’s show, here’s a little playlist of some LCD for your friday. the song “home” off the new album is one of my favorites right now.
one of our fp girls got married on saturday! the wedding took place at her brother and sister in-law’s farm in christiana, pa. there were no wedding planners- everything was put together by the bride and groom and their friends and family. the bride looked stunning in a white free people dress (from the cover of our february catalog) and sparrow ankle boots!
half of the guests set up camp and stayed the night under the stars – there was a live bluegrass band, a huge campfire and lots of smores. a string band from asheville, north carolina, called “chompin at the bit” played the cocktail hour, followed by a surprise appearance by “the family band,” comprised of the bride’s family, who played one of the newlyweds’ most favorite songs- “home” by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros.
sounds perfect :)
toby’s at the wedding! wearing his best tie :)
congrats to the bride and groom! thanks for sharing your lovely photos :)

on this day, activists, artists, architects, and other citizens around the country transform metered parking spaces into temporary public parks. it’s a celebration of parks and other public spaces in cities across the country, and to raise awareness of the need for more pedestrian-friendly spaces in urban areas. such a cool idea!
have you guys seen our jacket shop? it’s awesome- we have some amazing jackets that are making me really anxious for cooler weather- which is rare because i love summer. which of these styles is your favorite?
