Post image for celebrities craft for a cause

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.

more info about crafts for a cause can be found on the website here.

the first music festival of the season has come to a close… from what our fpgirls tell me, it’s a five day marathon of hitting as many possible shows as you can and going on very little sleep – but the opportunity to see so many amazing acts, many of them up-and-coming, makes it all worth it.

our free people store in austin had an event on friday featuring bands the boo who’s, jrl and the second grace, along with treats from hey cupcake! and giveaways for customers. luckily they had a camera on hand to capture all the fun!

Awesome pictures! It was such a fun event. PS. We're actually called The Boo Who's, not The Boo's Who

Post image for sxsw update

good morning and happy friday!

i heard from our fp girls down in austin and they’re having an amazing time already at sxsw – they told me about a couple of events taking place this weekend that they’re really excited about:

austin carniville started yesterday and runs through saturday, with a lineup of several great bands including major lazer and the walkmen – plus there will be rides, games, food and more. mmm funnel cake…

carniville is at the mexican american cultural center, 600 river st. in austin.

another event that our girls are attending is taking place tonight at the galaxy room. this showcase includes a handful of great bands such as the antlers, local natives, and the band they’re most excited about – an horse (pictured above). more info here.

so what is everyone doing this weekend? any exciting plans?

This is the hardest poll yet! I had to go with the who's that girl romper.... I could totally see wearing that w/ a pair of raybans and industrial-ish vintage boots! And of course, not to forget blonde, beachy waves. ahh... to be on the beach!

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!

Rocio -Mar 17, 2010, 12:01PM
Too bad that's the store I always go to!! Cant make it today :-(....

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
