Alissa, one of our wovens designers, showed me this cover of the Miley Cyrus song See You Again by The Mae Shi, and I am so addicted now! The Mae Shi‘s version is so catchy! The video is really funny too – enjoy!
This video makes me want the beach! I loooove all of the vintage footage and beach dancing chicks. Also love the fashion elements, the heels worn in the ocean, the suspenders with the bikini. Plus the hand drawings, this video has it all.
from Chicks on Speed. JC Report did a little analysis of the evolution of the band, if you’re interested…
Like female vocalists? How about a slightly folksy sound and some sweet viola playing? I’ve been really enjoying Anni Rossi‘s new album lately, and wanted to share a song of hers with you! It’s a pretty simple video, but I just love the song! I bet she would be cool to see live…
Meredith, Free People’s Allocator (she helps figure out how many of which styles go to what stores…) and music lover wants to share this Beck video with you! Here’s a little note from Meredith:
I found the video through the Creative Review blog, which I think is an amazing resource for keeping up to date on what is going on in the design and advertising world.
Beck has made a number of really fun videos for his latest album, Modern Guilt, one of which (Gamma Ray) features uber-fashionista Chloe Sevigny. Having seen this one though I think my relatives should all be expecting creepy, homemade heads of “David Beckhand”, “Short, Beck and Sides” and “Beck to the Future” as gifts this year; I’ve been inspired!
We have yet another fun holiday diversion for you! I recently went around and asked everyone here at the home office for their favorite holiday or wintertime songs! We have put them together on a playlist for you, which you can access by clicking here. Please note however, that you need to have iTunes installed on your computer to be able to view the playlist. We have been experimenting with different ways to put up playlists for you, so we of course welcome any feedback!
At any rate, check out the playlist! It includes over 30 songs, including this awesome classic sung by Eartha Kitt below…
Come check out the band of one of our accessories designers, Danielle! This Friday night at the Khyber, on 2nd and Market streets in Philadelphia, The Midnight Beat will be playing with Dark Horse & the Carousels and Federale! It starts at 9pm, and looks to be a real good show! Come hang out if you’re in town!
As if I didn’t already love this song enough, I saw the video for it recently and I am just going crazy over it! See for yourself and enjoy!
Do you believe there’s treasures in the ocean? This video by Angus and Julia Stone is so cute. The paper marionettes remind me of our blog header! Have you ever clicked on the curtain tassel? Try it out!
