Sasquatch this year was incredible! It was my second year going. All the bands I saw were amazing and the Gorge, of course, was beautiful!

i’ve been a big fan of band of horses ever since a friend told me about their debut album, everything all the time, back in ’06 and i loved it. the album’s first single, “the funeral,” completely blew me away – it definitely didn’t sound like a band’s first single, more like something that gets written much later in their career. i loved their second album too, cease to begin, so naturally i was really stoked to check out their latest, infinite arms. their music has a really soothing quality and a sort of country tinge to it, despite what their seattle roots might suggest. i still think their first album is my favorite but as long as they keep making albums i can sing along to and listen to all the way through without skipping a song, i’m happy.

they’ve been opening up for pearl jam on their current tour, and they’ll be stopping by amoeba records in san francisco this weekend for an in-store performance before heading up to their home turf to play sasquatch on monday.

pearl jam invited singer ben bridwell out on stage to help sing “hunger strike” at madison square garden last week and i almost can’t even watch this video because i would kill to see this song live…check it out:

aaand now listen to some of my fave band of horses songs, as well as their newest song “laredo”!

Great song! I also love Band of Horses (and 90s alternative!!). Ben Bridwell was also a member of Carissa's Wierd, another amazing but somewhat quieter band from Seattle. Unfortunately they are no longer making music :(

Post image for summer getaways – going up the country

bottom right photo by suzy wimbourne.

meadow3

Meadow is a girl who loves old world charm, she’s cultured and interested in the fairytale of life –  reading folklore makes her imagination run wild into a world of illusion and utopia.

Her nomadic way of thinking is projected in the way she dresses. Her wardrobe is a cluster of treasures from around the world. Each item tells a story.

Her ideal destination would be the English Country – Cornwall to be exact.

A historic Farm is where she would stay within wild flower meadows that are grazed by cattle and sheep. The place is Botelet, a few miles west of Liskeard in Cornwall. Patchwork of ancient fields and a wet woodland, capped by the Neolithic Hill Fort of Bury Down rural setting. It’s the type of place you can only imagine existing in Enid Blyton books.

She would travel solo with a heavy rucksack of books and sketch pads. She would wander the fields in the day, tell her tales to the wildlife and nestle down by the streaming rivers.

She would stay in the mirrored 70′s showman’s caravan (pictured above) which is positioned in the orchard amongst campions and bluebells with great views over rolling fields to the distant sea.

Items left to right:

Tiny Dancer Skirt, Eyelet Boot, Caravan Flared Skirt, Knotted Ditsy Floral Headband, Sleeveless Printed Cinch Waist Tunic, In Harmony Necklace, Mini Kurta, Oversized Slouchy Straw Bag, Beyond Vintage Long Sleeve Dashiki Shirt, Cleo Lace Up Sandal.

Post image for summer getaways – the beach

she loves the sand between her toes and salt water in her hair, and the sun brings a sparkle to her eye.  her style is easy and effortless- soft materials, solid colors and silhouettes that can be sexy when dressed up.  the most important thing is comfort because she never knows what the day will hold- it could end cuddled up in blankets by a beach bonfire or with a night on the town so versatility is key.  she’s all about the layers upon layers in the winter but she lives for spring, summer and splashing in the surf.

when thinking about sandy the lyrics to the beatles song “julia” always come to mind.

sandy’s summer getaway is the beach, whether that be a tropical destination like vieques in puerto rico or the california coast.  she always packs light- easy pieces that can be worn as beach cover-ups during the day and then dressed up if she goes out at night, and a warm sweater or jacket is a must for evenings when the breeze chills her sun burnt skin.  in her beach bag are definitely a few items from – what else? – our beach line; sunglasses and a big brimmed hat to shade her eyes, sandals and some accessories to throw on at night time.

1. portman top rimmed wayfarer; 2. straw and leather tassle tote; 3. modern haze printed bikini; 4. printed towel; 5. north beach wrap sandal; 6. siwy madeleine cutoffs; 7. giant brim straw hat; 8. ruffle sleeveless tunic; 9. ammonite cluster necklace; 10. fp pull on jean; 11. green almond druzy ring; 12. zulu dress; 13. black sands tunic; 14. centered pullover.

i can’t stop staring at this artwork by christine gray.  it’s colorful and trippy and brings to mind the atmosphere at a music festival – probably because the one with the tents and bonfire reminds me of burning man.

Late Lights

i want to be in this last image jumping on the trampoline into fiery night skies…

about her artwork, christine says, “in my work i look at the cultural mythologies that misrepresent nature and our relationship to it. i remake landscapes according to these fictions through both objects and painting, thereby adding to and revealing the fallacy of these representations. the sculptural tableaux i make as models for my paintings are theatrical, temporary situations where the real and imagined collapse into a space outlined by contradictory boundaries. extraordinary outcomes are made feasible by the distortion of the everyday. my most recent body of work focuses on the american myth of the seeker, traveling alone through untouched landscapes in search of a revelatory experience of the divine.”

check out more of her awesome work here.

Post image for real fp girls – part 9

my greatest loves are my husband, family and friends… i also love penguins and butterflies! my favorite place in the world is the great barrier reef in austrailia. i went there on my honeymoon and had the most amazing time! the weather, the water and the landscape were unforgettable. i love to shop and walk around NYC, people watch, eat at new restaurants, spend time with friends and hang out with my family in florida. on a typical day off i’ll exercise, walk around the city and explore new places, spend time in central park, catch up on tv from the week and go out to a fun dinner with friends!

the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar isn't the original whole foods. the original (which is now Cheapo Discs) was built in 1980 on lamar and 11th. The store flooded in 1991, and in the late 90's they built another location which is now book people, rei, and anthropologie. in 2005, the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar was built, which is the biggest whole foods in the world.
