Band Crush: Meet Cardiknox

Our Seattle visual manager Nikki recently spent the day with Lonnie & Thomas of the band Cardiknox in their hometown of Seattle.  Nikki documented the band throughout the day as they did a bit of wandering, hit up the local record store, found a photo booth, met the cutest bull dog named El Capitán, and grabbed a cone from Molly Moon’s, the best ice cream in Seattle. It’s safe to say, these two are our latest band crush – meet Cardiknox, and listen to their incredibly catchy song “Wasted Youth” below! Read More

Store Style: Grunge

Our store girls are great at styling looks, so I was really excited to see what they’d come up with for our grunge trend. They did not disappoint!

Kassandra works in our Seattle store – located in the birthplace of grunge at its best, no wonder she rocks the trend so well :)

Here she wears skinny jeans, the imagine me graphic tee, the caldra layer pullover and plaid buttondown.

Here she pairs the imagine me graphic tee with the floral widelegs, stripe hooded cardigan and open knit beret.

For her third look she’s wearing skinny jeans, the lace buttondown over a floral tank with a leather jacket and beanie.

I like this interesting take on grunge from Katie from San Jose – she’s wearing the sequin bodycon skirt with the plaid crop buttondown and a cute little top that will be available soon!

And lastly, the flannel onesie is (sadly) no longer available, but this look was too good not to share!
