Recently our Web Operations Manager, Heather, helped to organize a really fun event here in Philly, the Independance Day Scooter Rally! It lasts for a whole weekend, and this year was very successful, with over 150 people who showed up from all over- two ladies even came all the way from Oklahoma! Heather kindly shared a few really cool pictures from the rally, check them out!

so pleasant

This video makes me want to go to the aquarium right now! It was shot by Jon Rawlinson at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan. This particular tank is the second largest aquarium tank in the world! How fun would it be to be that scuba diver at the bottom…

P.S. The fullscreen version is pretty rocking.

If you are in the Chicago area this weekend, you should check out the Wicker Park Festival going on this Saturday and Sunday! This a cool music and arts festival that the Wicker Park & Bucktown area put on every year, with this year’s festival including something like 40 musicians! It starts tomorrow at 12pm, and runs through Sunday evening! Located at the intersection of Milwaukee & North Streets, it’ll be right across the street from our Free People store and our We The Free store! The word is that those stores will be having a big sale this weekend as well! Check out this site or this site for all the details!
Saturday July 25th & Sunday July 26th, 12pm-10pm
Milwaukee at North Street
Chicago IL
Special thanks to commenter Caroline for the heads-up!

I can’t believe all the great musicians that are playing in Camden this weekend! The XPoNential Music Festival is taking place at Wiggins Park on the Camden, New Jersey waterfront, starting today at 4pm through this Sunday! Definitely look into it if you are in the Philadelphia/Camden area, because from the looks of that list of musicians, this is going to be an awesome festival!
Today! July 24th through Sunday July 26th
Wiggins Park
Camden, NJ

Yeah! It’s poll time!
The winner of last week’s poll on mini skirts was decidedly the Tiered Denim Ruffle Mini, with a total of 174 votes!
This week I am really excited to ask you all about the Studded Cuff Thermal Top that recently came out. I’ve got to confess, I am extra-excited for this top because it comes in an XL! We’ve started making just a few tops that come in a size XL, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will add more styles in XL! Adding to that, this top comes in quite a few different colors, which is always great, and I’m wondering which color you guys will think is the best!
First, check out the top in charcoal.

Next, here’s the top in melon!

Shown here is the top in white.

Next up is the top in teal.

Finally, check out the top in wine wash.

What do you guys think? Which color is the best?

Tough choice, but I think I would have to go with the charcoal!
g! -Jul 23, 2009, 5:07PM
I love this top. There was a similar one last year and I actually preferred most of the colors from then, but I never bought any! I'll definetly be getting the melon and wine wash (my faves). As for sizing, a lot of the tops seem to run kinda small. I'm a xs/s and would probably opt for a medium for this.

As I’m sure many of you know, there was a solar eclipse today, which was visible to a lot of Asia. The always spectacular Big Picture photo blog by Boston.com has a wonderful post of images from the eclipse. The images above are from that post – aren’t they great?! The eclipse itself is so amazing, but I think my favorite pictures are the ones of people looking at the eclipse. Check out the post here – it’s worth it!

If you’re looking for something to do in New York City tonight, check out the The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Joe’s Pub! They’re the first band I’ve been tempted to call “funky” or “groovy” in a long time! They’ve got a fun mellow sound with dance-y beats!

You might remember when I mentioned that there was a really cool event this past weekend in Space 1520 by our Hollywood We The Free store. Lauren Dukoff had a special opening party for her new book Family, and Devendra Banhart played a special set! I missed it, being on the opposite coast, but our Store Manager Carla sent me some wonderful photos taken during the event by Sonny Gerasimowicz.

This is a signed copy of Lauren’s book! It features portraits of many amazing folk and indie musicians, including Devendra, naturally!

Here everyone is waiting around for the show to start!

Devendra is getting ready to go on… He sure is a cutie!

Devendra is about to go up and everyone is getting psyched! Also, on the left you can almost see the front of the We The Free store – there’s a guy peeking inside! Hope he likes what he sees!

The show begins!

Everyone loves it!

Our Managers-in-Training, Antonella and Laura, are huge Devendra fans, and they watched the show from the store garage. They look so pretty!
Thank you for the fabulous pictures Carla!

waste not

There is an amazing exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City right now by artist Song Dong.
Song Dong’s mother spent her entire life hoarding anything that she got her hands on, and refused to ever throw anything away. All her life she lived in a tiny house packed full with every kind of odd and end you can imagine. Shortly before she died, Song was able to convince her to allow him to clean out the house and use the contents as an exhibition. The exhibition is called Waste Not, and essentially it is all of his mother’s possessions, laid out and organized. The huge mass of stuff makes a really powerful statement. If I can get up to NYC in time, I will definitely be checking out this exhibition in person!
