Are ya'll as excited for Halloween as we are? What other day is it acceptable to be anything and do anything you want and get away with it? Well, maybe not DO anything you want--stay safe out there, people.
We're also super excited because the All Saints District Festival is happening again this year. On October 31st and November 1st, there will be events, giveaways, live music, and other festivities to tickle your Halloween fancies. Here's what you have to look forward to:
"Two Nights! Halloween and All Saints Day-- Live Music, Halloween Festivities, Pub Crawl, local businesses will be providing free food and beverage samples. The goal of the Festival is to promote the All Saints District and local businesses."
Oh, and there's also a raffle! We'll be raffling off one of our most popular t-shirts- the skull headdress (pictured below).
Don't forget to bring food for Second Harvest of the Big Bend! Not only will you be doing a good deed, but you'll also get a second raffle entry. It's a win-win situation.
I, for one, am planning on going. It pretty much sounds like the best festival ever. Now, I just need to figure out what I'm going to be for Halloween. That's always the hardest part, right? Any suggestions?
How's the weather out there for everyone? It's super rainy here in Tallahassee, but I actually love this kind of weather. It gives you an excuse to stay in bed and binge on Netflix. I think when the weather's like this, the "powers that be" should just cancel work and school--who's going to be productive when it's pouring outside, anyways?
But for those of you who might not be enjoying this weather as much as I am, I have some news that might cheer you up: our Lookbook for Fall is finished! And its awesome. Thanks to our beautiful models (Lauren, Lana, and Ciara), awesome stylist (Abi), and talented photographers (Black and Hue Photography), we not only get to share our favorite pieces with you, but also show you how we would wear them.
Want more? You can see the whole lookbook here: http://www.oldefieldsclothing.com/lookbooks.html.

Tallahassee's 2014 Gaines Street Fest is right around the corner-- October 11th to be exact! For those of you who aren't familiar with the festival, its an awesome day for live music, food, and fun--and we're all super excited about it. If you couldn't already tell, this whole post will be dedicated to getting ya'll up to our level of excitement.
As most of you know, we do screen printing at Olde Fields, so it's only natural that we screen printed the shirts for Gaines St. Fest right here! The design is below (a beer drinking, pizza eating, rocking Unicorn). If you want to be a super-fan of Gaines Street Fest, you can pre-order all of their paraphernalia! You can get the nude calendar, the official gaines street fest shirt, a GSF pin, a poster, and a mystery item for only $35! Just email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for "The Bishop."
Besides super awesome merchandise and super awesome bands playing all day long at St. Michael's Pub, All Saints Hop Yard, All Saints Cafe, and various locations on and around Gaines Street, businesses in the Gaines Street Neighborhood will be having special events and sales. A few are listed below:
There's even more specials on the Gaines Street Fest Facebook page, along with up-to-date information on all of the happenings as well as an updated list of the bands that'll be performing: https://www.facebook.com/gainesstfest.
