I live in portland and was so excited when this freepeople store was placed on 23rd. What a perfect location for a free people girl to shop. I will definitely be checking this out on third thursday!

well sxsw is officially underway in austin… our fp girls are there and told me they’re excited about the urban outfitters shows starting today – they’re going to be pretty killer this year!  a ton of great bands will play at urban’s backlot throughout the festival – including local natives, who i wrote about yesterday, and this band, the golden filter:

I was at this show last year during sxsw and they were hands down the best band at this party. Not only did she sing beautifully she look phenomenal. The Golden Filter is definitely a good band to catch.

these st. patrick’s day goodies look so delicious! on the left are cupcakes brought in by our office coordinator with yummy apple sprinkles that were quickly gobbled up. on the right are oreo truffles made by our senior store manager to share with customers at our paramus, nj store – so if you’re in that area stop by and grab one before they’re gone!

Post image for sxsw style

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.

barton springs

the items pictured above are:

1. seneca rising aurora ruffle top; 2. classic aviator; 3. folklore sandal; 4. we the free sargeant jacket; 5. sidewinder slip dress; 6. jonsi distressed bandana; 7. harness harley boot; 8. patch printed onepiece; 9. military patch slouch skinny jeans; 10. studded side sling bag; 11. leather and canvas backpack

Post image for mrs. bea’s

if you’d never been to austin before and you were walking down the street and passed mrs. bea’s, you probably wouldn’t even notice it.  you definitely wouldn’t think it’s one of the best venues to see a show during sxsw. but head around back and you’ll find an outdoor stage, dance floor and bar where no matter where you are you have an up close view of the band.  plus music is always better outside in my opinion!

check out these amazing photos one of our fp girls shot at the no age show at mrs. bea’s during last year’s sxsw:

today’s featured sxsw band is also one of my current obsessions – local natives!

i heard the opening notes of the first song “wide eyes” and they had me hooked immediately…i’ve been listening to their album gorilla manor nonstop for a couple of weeks now and i love it from start to finish.
it’s full of beautiful harmonies and intricate arrangements and a sort of moody, haunting undertone that i always seem to be drawn to. i wasn’t surprised to learn they list the zombies, crosby stills & nash and animal collective as some of their influences.

they’ll be playing a couple of shows at sxsw this year, one of them in urban’s backlot.
take a listen to the first few songs from their album and let me know if you’re loving them as much as I am…

That's my sister's building! That means she should see it tomorrow! Lovely idea.

i love the way umbrellas look when they're hanging. just went to a store that had an umbrella just like one of those dangling gracefully from the ceiling and i thought it was gorgeous!
