so many valentine’s day-themed events are going on this weekend! whether you like the holiday or not, there are a couple of things you can do in philly this weekend that sound pretty cool…
you may remember these murals from a post I did a while back…they’re part of a series called “a love letter for you,” which consists of over 50 murals by artist steve powers throughout philadelphia.
well there’s an exhibit opening tonight of sketches, found objects associated with the project, and personal works by the artist, taking place at 1226 chestnut st from 5:30 to 8:30. then tomorrow you can catch powers at exit skateshop in northern liberties between 5 and 7pm, signing copies of the “a love letter for you” book. there’s even a special “love train” event on valentine’s day, where you can take a tour of the murals on a privately chartered, slow-speed, guided el train. for more info click here.
this is something i’d like to do on any random day- this weekend you can go to hudson beach glass in philly and pull your own glass flower! they’re so pretty…and they’ll never die :) for more info click here.
you can’t escape it…love is in the air this weekend.
there’s a cool event taking place tonight at space 15 twenty in LA, the location of one of our newest free people stores. they’re having a special “valentine’s fantasy luv spectacular” with a pop-up shop and a performance by sister act pearl harbor. really mellowed out, warm and fuzzy pop – perfect music as you browse for last minute gifts for your sweetie…
it’s about that time for the thursday poll! last week i asked about our cute printed bras and the winner was the printed rouched bralette with 32% of the vote! that was my favorite too. this week, everyone’s got valentine’s day on the brain, so i’m going to ask about some more intimately items – this time our cute undies! which ones do you like best?

this year’s bonnaroo lineup is being announced today…starting at noon today, they began revealing one artist at a time every 5 minutes on their myspace page. pretty annoying actually…anyway it is going on right now if you want to check it out here. so far, among the performers they’ve announced are the avett brothers, weezer, phoenix, the xx, ok go, jay z, theivery corporation, jimmy cliff and the flaming lips performing “dark side of the moon” with stardeath and white dwarfs.
i know it’s not over yet but i’ll admit, with the exception of jimmy cliff (which is rad), i’m a little disappointed. maybe because i was at the second bonnaroo when the headliners were neil young, widespread panic and the dead. it seems like each year it gets a little more mainstream. what do you guys think?
on a more positive note, i love this photo shoot by dan martensen that was taken at bonnaroo ’08 (i was there that year, too)! as i mentioned yesterday, martensen shot our new february catalog, and our team was very inspired by this photo shoot – i can see why!
more sweet artwork for you to download! this one is the gateway for our we the free page online right now, and i love it! it reminds me of the beach, and therefore summer…sigh…click the image to go to our flickr page and download the large size!
