have you guys heard of birdie busch? she’s a philly native whose atmospheric folk music and whimsical voice are starting to gain wider recognition.  her myspace page describes her music as “weird and winding: she sings about magic, luck, the universe, the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions like Inspector Gadget. An intimate partnership with long time band mates has assured that her records are cohesive and remarkably mature, a dreamy Americana too warm to be made in this decade but too grounded and aware to be made anytime else.”

she has just released an EP of four songs inspired by her hometown (philadelphia) called “everyone will take you in” and our music coordinator gave me a copy last week. i was immediately intrigued by the packaging alone, it’s really lovely. it includes vinyl and cd versions of the EP as well as a stack of vintage looking postcards with song lyrics on the back and a letter from birdie explaining the meaning of this project. i wanted to share some photos just because i thought it was so nice!

Post image for The highlighted Shows so far – NY Fashion Week

So Far from New York the show that has stood out for me is the Charlotte Ronson show.

Everything was done so well from the combination of textures and prints to the styling and layering.

The collection was a delight “dressing down but in a romantic way” was the thesis of the range, sheerness seemed to be the prominent fabric, layered on top of prints.LOVE.

Floral prints were dressed down with grungy cardigans and loose knitted hats and… I’m all about long maxi denim dresses - this one is perfect!

It does seem like sheerness is going to be a big trend for Spring/Summer 2011, I’m seeing it in most collection (see Thakoon) everything from sheer tops to bottoms to maxi dresses.

I added in this Lela Rose ball gown because I thought it was breathtaking the subtle tie dye at the bottom is spectacular.

These are the shows that have excited me so far and I can’t wait to see what else NY has to offer!

a few weeks ago we invited one of our loyal fans to come visit the home office for a day, and our videographer put together this sweet video as a memento for her :) it’s cool because it gives you an idea of what a typical day is like here at the home office!

they’re vagabonds… rock ‘n’ rollers who travel from town to town with their belongings strung across their backs, guitar cases in hand.  the autumn gypsy is a mix of the bohemian hippie with a rocker edge. she spends her days beading jewelry and making necklaces with good luck charms that she gives out to friends and people she meets in her travels.  she reads palms and loses herself in deep thought when the weather shifts a certain way -  as days grow shorter and trees cast long shadows across her path her spirit comes alive, a mischeivious sparkle in her eyes. her friends have gatherings in the woods around bonfires that flicker across the crackling paint of old caravans. they tell stories and play songs into the night, reading poetry by candlelight and looking for patterns in the stars up above.

here’s a playlist of music this trend brought to mind.

I lately discovered your blog/website and have truly loved reading this and some of your other posts. I thought I'd dive out from the shadows and leave my very first comment. I am not certain what to say other than I have enjoyed reading and can carry on to visit as often as I can.
