This past Friday, both of our stores urbanic and neighborhood hosted another first fridays – “back yard lounge event”. If you came and hung out with us, we loved having you! If not, we hope you can make it to one of our future events.
The above picture is one of my all time favorites! There is SO much creative busy-ness going on (my dream come true in planning this part of the event). The “Greetings from Venice” DIY postcard project was phenomenal. Our concept was old-school, grass roots California (think O.P. ’83) – to go along with the theme of Aviator Nation. We styled out the place with primary colors and offered a Venice postcard template equipped with just a hint of an abstract rainbow outline ( hand drawn by Kendra of Hi design). We put out creative supplies for making and stood back to watch as people designed their hearts out! I can’t even tell you how many AWESOME postcards went through this place. Honestly I was sad to see many of them go. **So if you were one of the brilliant artists, please note, that I would love it if you sent me one! **
Personal highlights for me were… baking the rainbow sprinkled cupcakes, a surprise visit from one of my east coast BFF’s, partnering with the amazing Paul Esposito in taking these photos, and having Haley Joel Osment roll through with his boys. ( I have always adored that kid.)
The Aviator Nation Runway Show turned out really good. I have to hand it to Paige Mycoskie, She had the whole thing worked out to a science. From the neon light clad runway to the gigantic rainbow striped RV that she parked in front of our stores – the whole event was really tight.
A special thanks also to our next door neighbor Jennifer Siegel from OMD. She was cool enough to let us use her highly coveted prefab for the runway.
All in all, a really fun time. A perfect summertime party. I am exhausted in a good way. If you want to see more pictures click here.
