The buying team took a trip to New York a couple of weeks ago to go to the tradeshows and do some shopping. We were in Fabulous Fanny’s in the east village and spotted these amazing vintage folding sunglasses. We each bought a pair!
They come in very unique shapes and fold up to fit in a little pouch. Mine were a little big, so the shop owner used this machine that heats the frames and shaped them to fit my face better! The shop specializes in vintage and antique eyewear, and has other great vintage accessories too.
check out Free People sunglasses too:)

I love the dress Ryanne is wearing today!
Meredith & Jamie working away!
Fritz casts a glance my way as he cutely guards the buyer’s room…
These bowls of different colored dye look really cool!
Oanh takes a break from dyeing to discuss labels with Jessie.
Steph chuckles at my not-so-sneaky approach…
Johanna creating some sequined sweetness.
Barcode Revolution creates these specialized barcodes for a number of major Japanese brands. I love them! I have often wondered why we don’t do something creative with barcodes – I hope this idea makes it to the US!
Also, don’t you think one of these would look cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt? Maybe the castle one…
This is just amazing! A man in Suffolk UK built this incredible glass house, with a slide-over cover, for he and his wife to retire in… I would love to live here!
Our newest catalog drops today! We’re super excited about this book and can’t wait to hear what you think. We shot it in a studio rather than on location, stripped it down and really focused on the models and the clothing and the styling.
Check out the photos online (or check your mailbox) and let us know what you think! Some “behind the scenes” info coming at you tomorrow, so check back then.
A note to those of us that observe Daylight Savings Time, today is the day! Don’t forget to turn your clocks forward one hour at some point!

The awesome week-long musical summer camp Girls Rock Philly is looking for volunteers for it’s upcoming session this August! The all-girls camp targets musical development, self-esteem enhancement, friendship & community building, and nurturing individual talents within a cooperative atmosphere. During the week long camp, the campers form bands, and at the end of the week put on a concert! The campers and volunteers (who do not need to play an instrument or be in a band) have a blast!
They are having a meet-&-greet for volunteers a week from this Sunday. Check out the specifics if you’re interested! There’s also a Girls Rock Portland and a Girls Rock Chicago that I bet are starting to look for volunteers as well!
Below, check out a few of the bands from last year‘s camp. They are so awesome!
