Post image for record store day!

tomorrow, hundreds of independently-owned record stores across the country are celebrating record store day!  there is nothing like a good record store…one that you walk into and immediately feel your ears perk up to catch whatever the store is playing, because they always have the best tunes on as background music while you dig through piles of records and used albums.  the staff knows more about music than you do and makes recommendations for albums you didn’t even know about yet, but sure enough end up on repeat in your stereo.  countless times i’ve stopped into my favorite local store, a.k.a. music in old city, with the intentions of buying one album, but leave with my arms full of new treasures and practically run home to listen to them all.

the record store day website has a complete listing of all the venues participating tomorrow, and a lot of them will have special promotions and in-store visits from musicians!  so make sure you stop by your local store to say hello and pick up some tunes :)

a.k.a. music, philadelphia

i will be going to third man records today, jack white's record store here in nashville, and Grimey's- the king of record stores in Nashville. Grimey's was even in USA Today yesterday (see link). So excited!

I miss 611 Records off South Street (across from the fabulous Infinite Piercing). They closed a couple of years ago but I still have the 611 sticker on my car. *everyday junglist*boh boh!*

Post image for castles made of sand…

4284588587_e6d1d4980e

about a three hour drive through the desert to the west of marrakech will bring you to the seaside town of essaouira in morocco.  from the pictures you can feel the laid back vibe of a quaint fishing town, but essaouira also has an artistic culture that is very much alive- its medina houses several arts and crafts businesses, the beach is an ideal location for kite and windsurfing, and for the past 12 years the town has hosted the gnaoua festival of world music.  often referred to as the “moroccan woodstock,” the festival lasts four days and attracts close to a half million spectators.  one of the city’s most famous landmarks is the castle made of sand- said to be the inspiration for the jimi hendrix song, although he hadn’t yet visited essaouira when he wrote it. several images from our april catalog were shot in essaouira, and in looking through these photos i can certainly see why our team was drawn there.

Post image for the perks of being a wallflower – part 3

“you see things. you keep quiet about them. and you understand.”

“so, i guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. and maybe we’ll never know most of them. but even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. we can still do things. and we can try to feel okay about them.”

“and then patrick started running after the sunset. and sam immediately followed him. and i saw them in silhouette. running after the sun. then, i started running. and everything was as good as it could be.”

Post image for shooting the morocco catalog

the morocco catalog was shot by photographer dan martensen – he also shot our february catalog – we love him. the team also worked with morocco-based producer fred fantun, who has worked on numerous fashion editorials, and his familiarity with the area saved our team on multiple occasions. one obstacle? the lack of cars- our team had to use three carts to carry all of their shooting equipment, but luckily their porter was awesome and had a huge smile on his face the entire time as he helped them maneuver the narrow streets and alleyways.   our team shot the catalog in several locations, including marrakech, essaouira, the house where they stayed and on the balcony of the villa maroc hotel. they did an amazing job and found some truly beautiful locations for this shoot…next time bring me along, please!?!

we’re  crazy about denim at the home office! all of these photos were taken yesterday :)

fp julia -Apr 19, 2010, 3:51PM
hi hayley and jenn! it actually is the same material as the ends in sequins dress- she works closely with the designer who made the dress so she was lucky enough to score some scraps of fabric!! and the jeans are current elliot, "the skinny" style!
Jenn -Apr 18, 2010, 9:00PM
Who makes the jeans the girl is wearing in the last picture? I need to have them!

Post image for wood & wool stools

i first heard about these adorable custom-made stools on decor8, and i fell in love! the contrast of the recycled distressed wood and brightly colored crochet definitely reminds me of something i’d see in my grandparent’s house.  the best part is, you get to pick your colors and creator ingrid jansen will custom make your stool – so it is unique, personal and special.  in going through her flickr stream i found myself saving photo after photo as the inspiration was endless…
