zooey deschanel is probably one of the few actresses who has achieved a successful career in the music industry.  she has a natural, sweet voice that could easily fool you into thinking you’re listening to an old record from the fifties – and it probably helps that she’s teamed with m. ward, who is insanely talented. i recently saw him with his other band, monsters of folk, and i kept finding myself in awe of his effortless guitar skills and smoky, hushed voice.  he and zooey make a good pair…if their music had an aura, it would be golden.

zooey is so cute too… i love her vintage style. she & him’s volume two comes out today – take a listen to some of the songs below and let me know what you think!

Post image for more SXSW photos!

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

these sisters are so talented… i think it’s really interesting how similar their artistic styles are, yet they also have their differences. the colorful, nature-filled images feel appropriate with today being the first day of SPRING!

I'm not just a Giants supporter, Iam only watching the games and thinking they search many in control of the games they're in. And because the C in Cain and also the G in Game are equally plosives, compared to the J in David being a fricative….Big Recreation Cain moves off the tongue better.

Listed here is a notion-probably SJWs let the industry determine if they are basically superior and must design their own activities. They are therefore familiar with having Television and movie audiences head to regardless of the (overwhelmingly leftist) movie critics inform them is good that they are stunned and upset when they realize that gamers don't truly just instantly like the activities that they are instructed they should like.

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?

one of our fpgirls just returned from vacation and shared these wonderful photos and story. take a moment and let us transport you to a place we think is pretty special…

vieques_3

vieques_4

there’s a small island tucked to the coast of Puerto Rico where horses run wild, beaches are made of flour soft sand, and a bio bay is teaming with millions of falling stars that burst into light when ever-so-slightly touched. this place has been a well kept secret by the few who live and travel there, but i wanted to share it with you, because word is starting to get out, and it’s beautiful and magical and if the secret is revealed, i’d rather it be to you first… it’s called Vieques. if a vacation is in your budget (and it’s pretty cheap to get there), go. now. enjoy. and tell us what you think.

hi marian! that's awesome! if you ever want to share pictures send them to blog@freepeople.com!
Marian -Mar 25, 2010, 2:00PM
Hey FP girls!!! I just wanted to say that I'm from Puerto Rico and yes... Vieques is really beautiful there is nice warm weather all year round!! In December it can be at 89 degrees so we get beach time any time in the year. Another island in Puerto Rico as beautiful as Vieques is Culebra wich is really near from Vieques, so if you get a chance visit it as well!! oh and in Puerto Rico there are a lot of free people fans and some boutiques distribute your line which is beautiful. I'm a seamstress and I get inspire by your looks all the time!!! besos y abrazos desde la Isla del Encanto...love you all!

hey cupcake!

Post image for hey cupcake!

when i sat down to talk to our fpgirls heading to sxsw, one of the things they were most excited about were …the cupcakes!? i have since learned that austin is home to some delicious cupcake bakeries – two of which they highly recommend.

hey cupcake! has several locations in the city, many of which are airstream trailers – what is it with austin and airstream trailers?  apparently these cupcakes are a must-have and in addition to the standard ones with pink icing they have a red velvet and a “24 carrot” cupcake that sound to die for…check out their website here.

the other cupcake stop that can’t be missed is sugar mama’s bakeshop, located on south 1st street in austin.  this local family-owned bakery has an old-fashioned style and cute names for their cupcakes like “the pinup,” “southern belle” and “marilyn monroe” – described as “the original blond bombshell – buttery vanilla cupcake topped with luscious vanilla buttercream.”  the descriptions alone are making my mouth water! check out the website here.

WOW-excellent!

I do have to say - there is an AWESOME cupcake bakery in Memphis if anyone stops by. It is called Muddy's Bake Shop. I absolutely die for that place!

warmer weather makes me long for a house with a room that’s partially…or mostly…outdoors.  sunlight streaming in, curtains blowing in the breeze, birds chirping.

…just a little inspiration from a uk company called toast. so beautiful.

Post image for mrs. bea’s

if you’d never been to austin before and you were walking down the street and passed mrs. bea’s, you probably wouldn’t even notice it.  you definitely wouldn’t think it’s one of the best venues to see a show during sxsw. but head around back and you’ll find an outdoor stage, dance floor and bar where no matter where you are you have an up close view of the band.  plus music is always better outside in my opinion!

check out these amazing photos one of our fp girls shot at the no age show at mrs. bea’s during last year’s sxsw:
