fp jemma and i caught an early morning flight down to nashville and spent the day there as we waited for two other fp girls to get in. which was totally fine with us because we got to check out the scene downtown and do some shopping :) downtown nashville was one big party because the country music festival is going on this weekend too.

we had to take our picture with elvis real quick before we got away from the crowd downtown and drove over to south 12th street to check out imogene and willie, the store i blogged about the other day that i’ve been wanting to go to. and sure enough, their dog was right there in the window to greet us!

they had some amazing vintage belts.  the guy and girl who were working were extremely nice and told us that the kings of leon come in all the time! after imogene and willie we made the quick drive over to venus and mars, the vintage shop owned by karen elson. this store had a cat sitting on the patio to greet us :)

the store definitely felt like the home of some incredibly fashionable grandmother with racks of vintage dresses and garments in various rooms that are furnished and decorated with antiques. the wooden steps creak as you walk upstairs and there’s even a room with a bathtub overflowing with vintage treasures.

there was an adorable coffee shop right next door with outdoor seating where i could spend hours sipping coffee outside and reading a book.

and a great place to stop for a beer – 12 south tap room!

next stop bonnaroo!

the days are heating up and summer is just around the corner…time for long days of lounging in the sun followed by wild summer nights.  our current summer nights trend is all about the items you can rock all day long and then dress up with accessories to wear straight out at night.  i love our selection of body con dresses that are perfect for this trend. which one do you like best??

the solid short sleeve tunic:

the dinner time tieback dress:

there should be a tutorial on how to braid your hair like the model's in the downtown date dress!
Anna -Jun 10, 2010, 4:27PM
Definitely agree with kat! These are a bit plain. However, I do like the downtown date dress a lot.

fp jemma has been talking about making a chandelier out of tree branches for her apartment and i think its an awesome idea! another fp girl was telling me they used to make them for our store displays as well. it doesn’t seem too difficult – you can collect fallen tree branches and sticks in your own backyard or at a park, and bind them together with twine , arranging them however you want them to look.  this is definitely something you can play around  with and experiment with several branches or just a few.  it would look amazing  with some christmas tree lights woven in!

here’s some inspiration i found to get your creative juices flowing…

i absolutely adore this post. the branches give such an organic feeling even in the more modern room (fourth from the top). definitely have to incorporate this to my room somehow.
kayla -Jun 11, 2010, 6:52AM
my roommates and i have trees and tree branches hanging and placed all over our apartment. it's honestly super helpful, super cool, and totally random. i love the look of a huge tree branch just chillin in our great room with pretty things dangling from it. we even have one in the bathroom and we put toilet paper on branches to hold them. it's so unique and cute.

Post image for vintage nashville

we’re heading down to bonnaroo in a few days and i’m hoping we have some time to make a quick stop in nashville to do some exploring! if we do, there are a couple of vintage shops that i would love to check out…

first is imogene and willie, a store that’s one-of-a-kind in itself, located in a retrofitted gas station on 12th avenue south in nashville. while they specialize in premium, customized denim that they make right there on the spot, they have a selection of vintage cowboy boots, bags and accessories that i’d love to dig through.  not to mention it is owned and run by a husband and wife team who’s adorable dog you’ll likely find lounging on the couch, and in the evenings they’ll often have live music and happy hour :)

the other shop i’d love to check out, called venus and mars, is partly owned by karen elson – singer and wife of jack white. driving by the simple house on belmont ave (not far from imogene and willie) you might not even notice it but step inside and a fantasy world of vintage lies before you – while imogene and willie might appeal more to our tomboyish lou customer, venus and mars would defnitely intrigue the candys out there. the store carries high end, rare vintage garments as well as less expensive, colorful and girly vintage dresses and jewelry. says elson, “vintage isn’t just an old hand-me-down but a one-of-a-kind garment with a wonderful story.”

i really love the store’s website, too – it’s set up like an old book that you flip through.

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
Lindsey -Jun 09, 2010, 2:08PM
I live in Nashville and Venus and Mars is definetly one of my faves. If you have time, i'd also check out Grimey's which is the BEST record store in Nashville, and Third Man Records, owned by Jack White, is pretty neat as well. I also think you would love historic downtown Franklin, which is full of boutiques, antique stores, and wonderful southern cooking (i suggest Puckett's). I hope you have time to stop by and have some fun!

Post image for a bag for bonnaroo

bonnaroo is almost here! three days…it is time to start thinking about packing and luckily i’ve been a couple of times so i know exactly what to expect. here’s a look at what will be in my suitcase!

bonnaroo takes place on a farm in manchester tennessee, and at this time of year it gets brutally HOT – you are in a wide open space with very few trees, and people actually fight over the shade. but even if the forecast is for sunshine all weekend, there is still a very good chance that at some point it will rain. i would not go to bonnaroo without a good pair of waterproof boots and a raincoat!

during the hot days i tend to wear a bathing suit under cutoff shorts and a lightweight top. the chiffon slip would be perfect. throughout festival grounds there are mist tents set up for people too cool off, and believe me they are the BEST. i would bring a reusable water bottle too, because they have water stations throughout the grounds and buying bottled water is pricey (not to mention bad for the environment). sunglasses and sunblock are a must, and i’ll probably wear my straw fedora the whole weekend – i’m obsessed. a blanket is good to have for shows, especially the mellow shows where you just want to lie down, close your eyes, listen to the music and drift away…

free people items pictured above: 1. vlatava convertible skirt; 2. chiffon and mesh slip; 3. indian toile tube; 4. rugged & ripped cut-off short; 5. nicholas k larmont jacket; 6. fp skinny military cargo; 7. straw fedora; 8. classic aviator; 9. suede medicine bag; 10. printed v wire bikini; 11. folklore sandal.

other items: hunter boots, pendleton blanket, burt’s bees sunblock, sigg water bottle, sony digital camera.

I really, really enjoyed this! I'm spontaneously quitting my job this fall for backpacking trip across South America. I'm a huge fan and customer of free people (and your wonderful blog <3) and was wondering if you ever put together a list like this for backpacking? I love your clothing because of how well the pieces overall can coordinate and are convertible (and beautiful!) - it's perfect since I obviously can't bring that much.. Anyway, just wondering! Thanks!

i'm wearing my ends in sequins dress (with rainboots...) to bonnaroo! yes!
