Love Kate's style and love the Uggs pairing with the romper- makes it California-winter appropriate (and fun)!

Hi! I'm pretty sure Kelly wore the Dynasty Shift in Emerald to the Survivor Samoa Live Reunion show. No screen grabs, but it looked like it when she first walked on stage at the start of the episode.

Post image for book club update!

as i’m nearing the end of on the road i was inspired to take a look at the fashion of the beat generation.  beatniks were characterized by their rebellious spirit and anti-establishment, anti-materialistic philosophy, and they expressed this through stark and simple fashion.  jack kerouac and his crew wore old, ripped jeans and t-shirts because they didn’t care how they looked, while others wore head-to-toe black with berets or glasses.

what else about the beat generation’s style and culture is still resonant with you today?

share your thoughts in the comments section!  also for those of you reading on the road, try and finish by january 4th if you can, and check the blog for a final post about the book!

i already read it last summer, won't spoil anything, but I'll be honest, I thought it was a great work, but his other book "dharma bums" was actually more beautiful to me. In my opinion, he has more soul in dharma bums, and it really gives you a feel for the time. I totally suggest it for your next read ^_^

Post image for dallas shaw

dallas shaw is a delaware-based artist who’s work ranges from acrylic and watercolor paintings to notecards and tee-shirts. she also happens to be a big fan of free people! dallas was kind enough to answer a couple of questions for me and picked out some illustrations that she feels are representative of free people.

when and why did you decide you wanted to be a professional artist?

oddly enough i knew i wanted to be in art in some way when i was very young. i wrote a letter to the head animator of walt disney world when i was in 6th grade and asked him for a job! i think i was a little too young, but i worked at it since grade school, kept drawing, majored in illustration… as i grew older i really began to love the fashion industry and wanted to work in fashion but the right opportunity hasn’t come up just yet so here i am!

i read that you’re inspired by fashion and music…what designers and musicians are your personal favorites?
i do listen to music when i paint but i am really heavily influenced by the fashion industry. my personal favorites change by season but i am currently crushing on collections by phillip lim, lanvin & peter som.

what do you like to do when you’re not drawing and painting?
i don’t have a lot of free time on my hands this year. if i do end up with a few extra hours during the week i try to make time to spend with my really supportive husband. if I’m not with him during those couple of hours you’ll find me shopping!

to see more of dallas’s awesome work, check out her website!

mackenzie -Jan 13, 2010, 11:04PM
i love dallas' work. and i love free people. how convenient! i love when my favorites meet at the intersection. ;) well done, you two!

oh, thanks for the feature everyone! http://dillydallas.blogspot.com

on wednesday i took a little field trip over to city hall to check out the philadelphia mural arts program’s winter art exhibition, which featured the work of their very talented big picture and mural corps students. big picture students designed and painted sneakers and large-scale mixed media “treasure maps” representing their ideas on how to “be the change you wish to see in the world” (based on the gandhi quote). mural corps students explored notions of identity through self portraits. i spoke with some of the students and they were so proud to show of their work, which was available for sale to raise funds for the program…and they have every right to be proud- they are seriously talented!

remember the hilarious saturday night live skit featuring horatio sanz, jimmy fallon, chris kattan and tracy morgan playing the song “i wish it was christmas today?” if not, you’ve gotta watch the video below. anyway, julian casablancas (strokes singer) has done a remake of the song and it’s got all edge and energy you’d expect from him. take a listen!

happy friday! stay warm if you’re getting hit by the winter storm in the northeast!

Ashley -Dec 18, 2009, 5:29PM
I *love* that SNL skit! It's so cute! And I can't believe there's a legit version of the song now, that is so funny. I still prefer the Jimmy Fallon/Horatio Sans/Chris Kattan/Tracy Morgan version :)

Post image for evergreen…

what is your favorite holiday tradition?

i used to love going to the christmas tree farm when i was little…it was one of my favorite things about the holiday season.  i have vivid memories of riding around on the tractors and getting yelled at for jumping on and off the wagon while it was moving.

something you can do this weekend wherever you are…tomorrow just happens to be look for an evergreen day! so if you haven’t already done so, head on out to a tree farm where you can pick one out and cut it down yourself…

Ashley -Dec 21, 2009, 11:12PM
That's a neat tradition. Unfortunately, my Mom is a worry wart. She believes real trees are a terrible fire hazard, which is also why we don't have candles! I think she's a nut! I LOVE the smell of pine! especially at Christmas! Our tradition is to watch A Christmas Carol on the night of Christmas eve! I look forward to it every year.
