Big Things: It’s 2014

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts through December and January!

We’ve been dusting off and cleaning up some things. We hosted an acoustic show with two sweet singing ladies and Uly! SUPER BIG: We’re adding lots of inventory to our website so you guys can shop anytime you want, anyplace that has wifi you desire.

We’ve been generally kicking ass and taking names with lots of different projects and working on a blog makeover. 

So, while all that is going on, let’s talk about some huge things that are happening.

1. Our girl Amanda is going to NEW FUCKING YORK FASHION WEEK.

We’re one of the brands they represent. We’ll be hosting some of their events here as well, so HIT IT UP and go to their Power Hour Friday!

4. This isn’t new news, but it’s big news. Louisiana ArtWorks building. This needs to happen, dudes.

There are some super secret plans in the works for the building that I don’t even know about yet. But, big things *cross your fingers* are to come for this building. *knock on wood* It would be a fantastic edition to the city and an open space for creatives to come together AND MAKE AWESOME SHIT HAPPEN.

5. We love bad bitches and we love bad bitches that can sing. Maggie Koerner released her new record “Neutral Ground” in November and it is still on repeat in my car. Click here to see her music video.

This lovely folk babe is killing it all over the place. She’s in Florida for a bit before moving through the rest of her tour until ending in March in San Fran! If you’re traveling, make sure you catch one.

H&M Opening Party!

Remember when H&M had their opening party Friday?

Image

Image

Remember how I posted about The Dolls for this week’s #wcw?

Image

REMEMBER WHEN THEY PLAYED AT THE OPENING PARTY?

Image

Y’all, am I psychic or what?

Image

Remember when we bought the entire store?

Image

Image

You don’t? Well, don’t you worry. I’m going to fill you in.

Image

Of course we partied with our girl Emma. She looked stunning in a piece from the Isabel Marant collection. Christina and Em are hammin’ it up as usual.

PS what do you think about Christina’s new hair? She can rock any color, it’s crazy.

Me (left), Emma, and the ever fabulous Lindsey Hartman (right).

Blake Lively paid a little visit, but rushed out after taking photographs to be interviewed.

H&M provided masks for guests, which I didn’t take off until Saturday morning. It’s gold and sparkly, how could I?

Great music, great people, great party.

Image

We took some obligatory red carpet photos and, of course, we got those Polaroids.

Things got exceedingly sillier once the champagne started flowing.

Hannah being adorable and rockin’ that first purchase! She looks amazing in purple.

Image

Like I said, exceedingly sillier.

Image

And then I got up on stage and danced with Mia Moretti.

You know, watevr.

Image

Probably the best moment of the whole party.

Image

Catch’a on the flip side.
