Post image for frank the bird

a heart-warming story from one of our free people girls…

“this morning i was walking back from the jharoka (the cafe down at the navy yard where we work) with my coffee and i spotted frank in the grass by our building.

he couldn’t fly, and i started to feel sad cuz all the dogs that come to work with their parents run around in that grass…
and i wasn’t sure how frank could avoid all those paws.

so my friends helped get a box and some gloves and we scooped up frank and put him inside with some grass so he felt cozy.

i called the schuylkill wildlife rescue center and they were so nice and said bring him in!

so i drove him up to the rescue and they said it was nice that frank was there because he still had his bloodfeathers and probably wouldn’t be able to fly for another week or so…

i’m glad such a place exists and i’m glad frank is going to be okay. :)”

isn’t he the cutest?!? check out the schuylkill center’s website for more info on the awesome work that they do.

Oh, Oh....these are to die for. I absolutely love them. I would love to have them for my daughter's bedroom. I have ordered from the Free People web-site and by store searches for years now. Unfortunately, I have never had the opportunity to step foot into a Free People Boutique Store. So, I have never had the chance to see these beautiful beings. Pick me Free People....I want them "SO BAD" for my daughter's bedroom. I am a loyal customer :) Thanks for the opportunity!!!

Post image for Bonnaroo Day 2 – Sweaty Hot Saturday!

Untitled-8sizedUntitled-9sizedUntitled-10sized

Wow Saturday at Bonnaroo was very VERY hot! I’m surprised I made it through :)

I did manage to snap some girls in cute outfits though.

 I quite like the style of Bonnaroo it’s not as high styling as Coachella  but hey we’re at a festival right.

I liked how girls wore florals with aztec prints and how they rocked bandeaus with their shorts.

I liked  they didn’t care if they got sweaty and passed out on the side of the dirt tacks.

I loved that they danced their hearts out under dirty water fountains and that they swung their hair around like they just don’t care.

The sweet smell of patchouli covered the air.

Bonnaroo I had fun with you

xoxo

I too love the bandeaus with shorts look, thanks for sharing an inside look at Bonnaroo!

Post image for saturday at bonnaroo

IMG_3551

IMG_3549

we were woken from our dreams early saturday morning – and i mean earlier than i’ve been up in a while on a saturday – because the heat was already making the tents unbearable.  the sun was out and we knew it was going to get HOT. we started the day by heading into centeroo, where all the vendors set up shop.  they have great vendors at bonnaroo – lots of handmade clothing and accessories, all natural products and surprisingly good food. i picked up a bag that i adore and a beautiful skirt from a shop called the mayan connection – actually all four of us got skirts there :)

IMG_3546

as guests we had access to a special area behind one of the stages with a “messy hall” and outdoor seating areas – with hammocks.

IMG_3606

IMG_3608

IMG_3610

right across from the guest area was the artist hospitality area – which looked pretty sweet. we were not allowed in, though…

IMG_3627

IMG_3634

the first show we went to on saturday was jimmy cliff, who i was really looking forward to seeing. he was awesome -  as he was singing “i can see clearly now,” we were told we had to leave the bleachers where we were sitting because a storm was coming in. we were actually kindof excited for rain but the storm never came. umbrellas were everywhere at bonnaroo – not because of rain, but to provide shade from the hot hot sun.

a free people bag in the crowd…

and our new buddy proudly rocks one in the bleachers.  i love making friends at bonnaroo :)

IMG_3655

IMG_3666

next up was mumford & sons who were phenomenal! at one point old crow medecine show came out and played “wagon wheel” with them which was awesome. after that we went over to cafe where? to see angus and julia stone.   they were amazing and angus is seriously the cutest thing i’ve ever seen. julia has a gorgeous voice and she can play guitar, keys, the horn and harmonica.  she rocks.

and finally, stevie wonder took the stage for his headlining show.

Post image for Bonnaroo Round One

Untitled-3sizedUntitled-4sized

Hey Hey! I’m back giving you the style coverage from the festivals – this time around we’ve hit Bonnaroo in Nashville Tennessee. Mmmmmm or should I say Sweataroo, my is it DAMN hot here. Even Mr Followil of the Kings of Leon thought so “this is the hottest I’ve ever been… man!” but I didn’t mind seeing Caleb all sweaty. I didn’t mind at all :)

We arrived at the festival at 9 set up camp under the pitch black sky then headed into the drunken humid air.  It was very hard at this point to spot people who intrigued me with their style as the majority  were crashed out on the floor star gazing/ light headed.

One thing I noticed though tie dye was everywhere. A look I loved was long tie dye skirts (ok not the wacky packy style) the toned down versions worn with cropped lace tops.

The crowd at Bonnaroo is alot dirtier than Coachella, many girls walk around in just two piece string bikinis, but hey I don’t blame them the heat is a killer!

After seeing Kings of Leon ( highlight Caleb singer ‘Where is My Min’d by the Pixies!!!! ) we bumped into Noot Seear who modelled for us in our July catalog. She is such a sweetheart we love her and I loved her pants!

Ok that’s all form the friday night. We have a full day here today so hopefully some exciting coverage will come your way — BYE!

wow what a weekend, love the style montage fondly the improper collective

Post image for bonnaroo night one

we pulled into bonnaroo as the sun was going down and had just enough time to find the guest camping area and set up our campsite before making our way to the main stage to see the kings of leon. i have never seen them live before and let me tell you they did not disappoint! it was a phenomenal set- the highlights for me were definitely their cover of the pixies song “where is my mind,” and “trani” which i had been hoping to hear!

IMG_3510

another benefit of being a guest at bonnaroo? access to the special viewing platform to the side of the stage (and away from the sea of people).

IMG_3512

IMG_3517

next we headed over to which stage where the flaming lips were about to come on. as usual, they came out with an explosion of lights and color and balloons that was a pretty amazing sight.

IMG_3519

IMG_3522

IMG_3525

the magical mushroom fountain…

IMG_3529

it was a very long day and we were exhausted from the heat…we stopped by to see some of the black keys show before heading back to our campsite where we fell asleep listening to the flaming lips play dark side of the moon.  not a bad way to end the day!

now we’re off to see what saturday has in store, stay tuned…

Terrific reporting Julia!

the flaming lips looks like it was unreal. love the last photo too, so beautiful.

Post image for bonnaroo bound – first stop, nashville

greetings from manchester tennessee!!! we made it to bonnaroo last night after a long day of travel and exploring nashville…

IMG_3353

IMG_3357

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!

IMG_3433

IMG_3436

IMG_3418

IMG_3419

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 :)

IMG_3441

IMG_3445

IMG_3451

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!
