i thought saturday at the xpn festival would be tough to top but sunday just might have… the weather could not have been better and the bands were amazing. i was fortunate enough to have a media pass so i was able to watch the shows from a spot directly in front of the stage – i have tons of great photos to share! but for now here are some photos of the atmosphere on sunday…
we took the ferry over to camden from penn’s landing – definitely the way to go! you get some great views of the philly skyline and ben franklin bridge.
i spy a free people bag!
jade of edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros! she’s adorable.
sunset during the dr. dog show- so pretty.
darkness sets in as robert randolph takes the stage to close out a wonderful day :)
yesterday was a beautiful day – perfect to spend sitting outside on the waterfront listening to some good music at the xpn music festival…
the walkmen and yo la tengo were both fantastic, and i got to sit and chat with diane birch (pictured above) who is a really talented and sweet person, not to mention beautiful! i will have that interview here on the blog shortly but today i’m off to the festival again- dr. dog, edward shapre & the magnetic zeros and robert randolph play today, i can’t wait!
this is the lovely georgia of the blog dora’s fur – doesn’t she look adorable? our creative design assistant snapped this photo of her yesterday. apparently the shorts used to be a skirt that she altered herself! they are super cute and i love the knotted shirt look- so effortless and cool for summer.
“these pants are so versatile – you can dress them up or down. wear them with a graphic tee and a scarf for a cute casual look, or dress them up with the black seamless tupelo honey top, the fritz bows & arrows clog (our other pick for this week) and a dressy bag. it’s great to see cargo pants in a skinnier fit so they can be sexy! plus military is still going to be a huge trend this fall.”
“these clogs are SO comfortable! they look amazing with the sock trend that’s going on right now – they look really cute with over the knee or slouchy socks. wear them now with cutoff shorts and a tank, and carry them into the fall with tights and a bodycon dress!”
this friday we will say goodbye to building 15, our home here at the navy yard, and moving into a new, larger building. but building 15 will always hold a special place in our hearts… from the moment i first walked through the doors, i felt at home here.
blue bins everywhere – they’re for us to pack our stuff in.
this wall has never looked so naked :)
ditto for my workspace…it looks so sad.
fritz does not appreciate all this moving and shaking!
our concept intern, anastasiya, put together this post on a trend she loves right now – and i love it too :)
I have always had a special spot for grunge, but lately that tenderness has grown into a full-fledged love for the style that was popularized in the nineties before staging its comeback in the twenty-first century. The utility and the comfort that accompanies the look is an instant winner, but the most fun aspect of grunge for me is the way that it makes me feel. I love that I can pull on a confused blend of loose thermal, torn jeans, floor-length skirt, give or take flannel, and go bare-faced out into the world and feel totally at ease. All insecurities dissolve, receding further into some forgotten trapdoor in the back of my mind each time that my hands re-inhabit the warm asylum of my too-long sleeves. In grunge there is no pretension—nothing to prove. It feels right.
Free People’s incorporation of grunge is divine. I love the idea of injecting pretty, feminine lace into a look that is messy, low maintenance, and somewhat boyish by nature. It feels very fresh.
