humming house


sweet ole’ humming house.
we were all thrilled when sweet ole’ humminghouse booked to play in our backyard a couple of months ago. we were even more appreciative when the police came and told us we were “too loud”, and the humming house folks quickly re-vamped their set and played unplugged.
i remember looking across the crowd and smiling when i saw everyone from toddlers to teenagers to rockers to my parents and their friends tapping their feet to the beat.

the best part of waking up…


Contrary to popular belief, there’s usually sense in making things more complicated than they need to be; shortcuts most always mean shortcomings. The same goes for coffee.

one year where

New year, new jeans. That’s our motto this month at imogene + willie. To kick-start our One Year Where photo campaign – we’re offering everyone who buys a pair of jeans this month (January 2012) 40 percent off the first pair of jeans they buy next January (that’d be 2013). Nothing like planning ahead!


One Year Where will be a yearlong interactive series where we’re asking you to engage in a little show-and-tell. Our customers are an international crew; not only do they live all over the globe, but they tend to travel a lot as well. In other words, our jeans get around. This year, we’re hoping to find out exactly where they go.


You can help us do this by posting pictures of yourself wearing the imogene + willie jeans you purchase in 2012 on our Facebook page.
