I absolutely adore the NorthernGRADE Menswear Market, which has now become an annual event here in the great city of Minneapolis. It features all handcrafted, made in America goods. It is always full of smiling, beaming faces, proud to be a part of such a great event and this year was probably the best yet (fine, I say that every year).

This weekend is the first ever, two-day Girls Got Rhythm Fest organized by Dana Raidt and Travis Ramin. It will feature women-led bands and world known lady musicians. It's very possible that you will see me there, screaming and jumping a-la American Bandstand when Ronnie Spector takes the stage. RONNIE SPECTOR. AH! So in honor of this incredibly exciting event, this week's LOUD /LOUD will feature artists from the big event--these ladies all rock so hard there is no quiet to be found! Check out the full lineup and get your tickets today. Hope to see you there!
Full Disclosure: Trixie is one of my dearest friends but I think I can still be unbiased when I say that she is truly one of Minneapolis' most talented rising stars. She has done hair for tons of events from fashion shows to the Soap Factory Haunted Basement and is the only person I'll let touch this mop on top of my head. Not only is she known for her hair talents but her beautiful ink and was just featured in this month's issue of Tattoo Magazine! Looking for a fresh look? Set up an appointment with her at the brand new Grand Ave location of Moxie. Feeling gutsy? Ask her to make you look like some kind of vixenous Disney character like she did for me a year ago:
So many awesome things happened in the MiniApple this weekend I just had to share.
I have been a giant fan of the Mighty Swell shop since I crutched into their first sale with a broken foot (true story). Now that they are an "occasional shop" rather than a pop-up I have even more opportunities to see the lovely ladies and lovely wares of Mighty Swell. I took my gent to the His sale on Friday and was pretty thrilled with the result. Very much looking to the Hers sale on February 10th! In related news- I dropped my Instax (bound to happen) and the result was 1 blank white photo and 1 (actually stunning) yellow photo. I am not disappointed.
Saturday // Hair:dark red, Nails: summer colors & The Current 7th Birthday Party
My good friend Becky (AKA Trixie) over at Moxie dyed my hair a beautiful dark cherry red (which is unfortunately difficult to catch in photos)--Call her up if you need some new color! I also did my nails in a pretty exciting, summery combo- Sally Hansen Green as Envy, Loreal Boozy Brunch and Essie Tart Deco.
and THEN I took my good friend Rachel to the Current's Birthday party for her birthday. You guys, we have amazingly talented folks here in Minnesota.
Haley Bonar- A much loved constant of the Minneapolis music scene
Sims- My favorite of all the Doomtree Crew
Polica- Exploding here in Minneapolis, and for good, good reason. Seeing those two drummers in action is positively mind blowing. Almost unbearably sultry music. Will make you want to...well...you'll see...
Well it's officially September and in Minnesota that means grasping to every last second of summer like you will never get to feel warmth on your skin for the rest of your life....and with a potential of 8 months ahead of us with below freezing temperatures, winter really does feel like an eternity up here. So on September 1st I rushed over to the beach after work and for a few hours reminded myself to "remember this feeling" every 2 minutes. Summer, I sure will miss you.
