This was my second year at Pitchfork Festival, which takes place at Union Park. It’s one of my favorite festivals because it’s never too crowded, the bathrooms are always clean, there’s good food and of course an excellent lineup. Some highlights from this year: The best Animal Collective performance I’ve seen (and I’ve seen quite a few), discovering Sun Airway, Twin Sister (twice), the amount of weed smoked at Curren$y, Guided By Voices, and the entire Deerhunter set.
I also took photos for StyleCaster, if fashion is your bag: http://www.stylecaster.com/fashion/14202/pitchfork-festival-style-modern-hippies-in-midwest
I had fun documenting the my little pony hair trend- it HAS reached the Midwest and I do believe it’s here to stay. Flip through the slideshow for some examples (#1 of course exemplified by Andrea of Twin Sister, who busted out a knee length turquoise wig on Day 3).
Here’s how it went down:

Then it was over which was very sad and so me and DT went to the aquarium to cheer ourselves up.
These rays were very Marc Jacobs S/S 11.

Every summer for as long as I can remember I’ve gone to Maine for vacation. Now we have a house in Brooksville, 9 hours north of NYC near Bar Harbor and about an hour from Nova Scotia. It’s one of my favorite places in the whole world.

I’ve been working with the talented Mary Ping of Slow and Steady Wins the Race on our new collection at Soundscreen Design. I’ve been a huge fan of her line for ages, and she’s having a very rare sample sale this weekend, Friday thru Sunday, being held at Everybody’s Going to Heaven in the LES. Stop by and grab something from her or one of the awesome designers participating.
See you there!
