what’s everyone up to this weekend? i am seeing one of my favorite bands, my morning jacket, at penn’s landing on sunday and i can’t wait!!! i have loved them for years and seeing them at this venue (which is pretty small) should be amazing. i haven’t seen them since bonnaroo ’08, when they released their last album evil urges, so i’m curious to see what songs they play.
i’m trying to get there early to get good seats so i can take pics!
if i wasn’t doing that, i would probably take a day trip to bethel, new york, for their harvest festival. our vintage buyer told me about it – it takes place on sunday at the site of the original woodstock festival and there’s a farmers market,crafts, live music and more. sounds like so much fun!
good morning! let’s get right to the thursday poll… this week we’ve been telling you about some of the trends we love for fall, so i thought i’d ask which of these trends you all are most excited about!
today we had the extra special treat of a farmers market right outside our office doors! fresh fruit, veggies and other produce from local farms and live music in the background as you shop. this will happen again september 8th and 22nd, how exciting! here are some photos from today- not the sunniest day but still nice :)
we had a bbq here at the navy yard yesterday to celebrate the end of construction around the dry dock next to our building. it looks so beautiful, they did an amazing job – and the party was awesome. a live band playing country-tinged covers of classic songs, mini golf, tons of great food, and beautiful weather :)
it’s almost that time of year… to wear thermals!! i can’t get enough of our thermals, they are the BEST. i love these four styles so much i can’t decide which one to get for this season. which one do you guys like best?
like it or not, fall is just around the corner… which of course means new store displays! here are some shots of the new displays at our king of prussia, PA store. the rich colors and the added texture of the yarn is perfect for fall, bringing to mind a cozy knit sweater you just want to wrap yourself up in.
i love how the fabric seems to be dripping from the ceiling, like the store is oozing creativity.
you may recognize the fabric covered vases that have been pictured around our home office and at our costa mesa store.
i think my favorite part of the display is the yarn. it is also used as decoration here at the home office – i love it, the colors make me happy :)
taking place at beauty bar in las vegas tomorrow night is the first ever matt bernson band bash! hosted by women’s shoe designer matt bernson, who’s helena boot and cecelia espadrille wedge are currently available at freepeople.
the party will be “the complete antithesis of the vegas industry event. no ropes, no VIPs…just incredible music and raucous celebration taking place at the famous beauty bar’s outdoor, fifties-era inspired courtyard and performance space.” here are the bands who will be performing!
have you seen our new outfits for august yet?!? i always get so excited when we have new outfits because our team does such an amazing job putting them together. the layering in these outfits is so perfect. which is your favorite?
i think this is the first time i’ve actually been stumped! i love them all. now vote!
click on the images to see the items in each outfit. the winner of last week’s desert gypsy poll was the traded treasure bib necklace with 33%.
one of our fp girls is on a recruiting trip in nashville for our new store there (tentatively scheduled to open mid-november!) and shared some great photos for the blog. i have a soft spot for nashville, i really love it there…i think these photos really capture the atmosphere down there :)
