i have a love/hate relationship with first fridays in philly.  i live in old city…so when i leave my place to go out on the first friday of the month i have to wade through the sea of people blocking the sidewalks, and every place i go is packed.  but once it gets nice out, i find myself warming up- literally – to the idea.  the streets of old city come alive with all types of creative folk who line the sidewalks with their art, craft and music.  i’ll wander around perusing the treasures, stopping every once in a while to talk with sellers, all the while soaking in the energy that is first friday in philadelphia.

here are some photos from yesterday evening…

Post image for the great escape…

fridays are always a little tough at work this time of year, with it being so nice out and so close to the weekend, so what better way to help pass the day than a lunchtime concert? we snuck out today at noon, hopped in the car and made the quick drive over to WXPN for the local natives free at noon show – something the station does every friday at world café live.  we were instantly transported from work mode to music mode as we took our seats up in the mezzanine level (thanks xpn!) and let the tunes take over.  this band blows me away- they sound better live than on the album and the songs “airplanes” and “who knows who cares” gave me chills. i knew “sun hands” would be amazing live as well and it sure was- they put everything into that song no matter how many times they have played it. this was my first time seeing them live and it definitely will not be the last- i have already got tickets to see them at first unitarian church in philly this august!

This is an adorable puppy. I had one just like it and now she is a most adorable full gone mini dashound. I love her so much and she has the heart and courage of our 110 pound brownn lab! They are best friends and they are the cutest when they play together. They make my life so full! Darlene

Post image for mom’s boho style contest!

when it comes to bohemian style one of the first things that come to my mind are the sixties and seventies and photos of my mom in bell bottom jeans, long skirts and peasant tops – looking through photos of her in her twenties is so inspirational. was your mom a total free people girl when she was young?

send us a photo of your mom in a boho, vintage outfit  and we will pick a winner and recreate the clothing depicted in the photo! the runner up will receive a $100 gift card.

to enter the contest, click here.

*you must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of the US to enter.


i can’t wait to see your photos!

I don't know if it's relevant ... but we could do the same for fathers day? My dad was a pretty foxy boho babe too!

Post image for mother’s day at fp upper east!

celebrate mother’s day this saturday at free people upper east side! they will be taking personal mother/daughter shopping appointments all day long, so just call or show up with your mom – and you might be photographed for the blog!

plus, there will be a special surprise at checkout for your mom, and of course, refreshments!

1319 3rd ave, nyc
(212) 744-0379

sounds like so much fun! the same store had a girls night out event a couple of weeks ago, where they styled customers in head-to-toe night out looks – perfect for a night out on the town or a special date! their sales manager melissa gave the girls makeup tips to help them complete their look, and of course no free people event would be complete without lemonade and cupcakes :)

check out some of the cute pics from the event, and if you’re in the area take your mom out for a day of free people fun on saturday!

i love these colorful rings from seven ply’s etsy shop and the fact that they’re made out of recycled skateboards makes them even cooler! i could definitely see lou rocking one of these couldn’t you?

they also make really cool earrings, necklaces and belt buckles:

check out the etsy shop here.

how adorable are these wall decals? one of our soho employees sent these photos, which are of a craft project she and her sister did for her sister’s new baby’s room.  they found vintage sheets and cool textile fabrics and cut out the shapes.  they then corn starched them and attached them to the walls of his bedroom.  this is something you can do with any fabric and it adheres really well, plus they peel right off if you ever want to take them down or change them up!  i love this idea, and there are so many things you could do.  here are a few more examples i found to stir the creative juices:

there’s also a full tutorial to show you how to do it right here!

I LOVE it. What a great way to perk up a plain white wall! I think the birds flying in a flock are my favourite!
