moving day! we have to shut down our computers by 10am so i won’t be able to post for a little while, but i’ll be posting photos from the xpn festival this weekend so stay tuned!
this is such a cool idea! “life in a day” is a cinematic experiment produced by ridley scott and directed by kevin macdonald, together with the youtube community. the goal is to capture a snapshot, through many different eyes, of what life is like on earth during one 24 hour period. how are they going to do this?
they are asking YOU – anybody and everybody – to chronicle their life on one day, july 24 2010. this could be your daily routine, your job, what you’re afraid of, what you love, a pretty sunset, ANYTHING. you can then upload your video on the project’s website, and the most compelling and distinctive videos will be edited into the final feature film. the film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011 – and if your video is used, you’ll be credited as a co-director and have a shot at being one of 20 people who gets to go to sundance to celebrate with kevin macdonald.
ummm…..wow? i’m curious, what would your film be about?
one of my favorite music festivals is taking place this weekend! the XPoNential music festival is an annual three-day festival put together by the university of pennsylvania’s public radio station, WXPN. it’s pretty much the only radio station i listen to- not because i went to school there, but because they play the BEST music. i cannot tell you how many new bands i have discovered through them. anyway this year i think they have put together their best lineup yet! here are some of the bands playing:
grace potter & the nocturnals; the felice brothers
yo la tengo; the walkmen
these united states; blood feathers
dawes; robert randolph & the family band
dr. dog; edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros
the festival is held at wiggins park, a really cute spot on the waterfront in camden. they have lots of local vendors, good food, good people- and the best part is how small the festival is. the first time i went i got to meet jim james from my morning jacket at the side of the stage – really exciting for me since they’re one of my favorite bands. can’t wait for this weekend! i will be taking lots of photos for the blog, so stay tuned.
and here is a playlist of songs by the bands listed above!

prior to opening our new store in costa mesa, ca, a couple of our display team members who work out on the west coast made a trip to the rose bowl flea market to pick up some props for the store. one of them shared her photos from the shopping excursion and i found myself practically drooling over the blankets, accessories and various little trinkets she found. philly needs a (monthly!!) flea market like this! i would be in heaven.

and in case you missed it check out our blog post on bodysuit styling :)
the winner of our patchwork poll was the patchwork paisley necklace dress with 27% of the vote :)
the chiffon and lace slip dress is without a doubt one of our most versatile items. it’s all about the layering and how you style it – and fortunately we have the girls of free people highland park to offer up some fabulous ideas! (you may remember these very same girls showing multiple ways to wear the ruffle bottom slip not too long ago!)
doesn’t it look adorable with the floral peeking through the lace??
this might be my favorite – worn over skinny jeans with the we the free tiger’s eye tunic over top. such a great idea!
another amazing idea! throw it over the new crinkle floral dress for a totally unique look!
fantastic ideas, ladies!!
