Wiz Khalifa and AEO Team Up to Help Kids in Need

For those of you that don’t know, our headquarters is in Pittsburgh, PA, home of the Black and Yellow and one and only, Wiz Khalifa. Since we share the same hometown roots as Wiz, we were super excited to team up with him and be a part of giving back to the local community.

On September 15th, Wiz surprised students at his alma mater, Allderdice High School, along with Pittsburgh Sterrett 6-8 and Pittsburgh Obama to deliver the message that working hard will help you to achieve great things.

“I’m really happy to give back to the kids in my city.  It’s really important to support Pittsburgh as much as they support me,” said Wiz Khalifa.

In addition to his visit, Wiz donated 1,700 book bags from American Eagle Outfitters to be divided amongst the 30 District schools that serve middle and secondary students.

“We are honored to be partnering with Wiz to make a positive impact in the lives of these students and to help them get the school supplies they need to be successful in the classroom,” said Chad Kessler, American Eagle Outfitters global brand president.

In response to the donation and visit, Pittsburgh Allderdice Principal Melissa Friez stated, “We are proud to welcome Wiz back to Allderdice.  He is an accomplished artist who is known worldwide, but he has not forgotten his hometown of Pittsburgh.   His donation will be used to help students across the District understand the value of being prepared for school and his commitment to their success.”

It’s time to refresh your closet for Fall and Adam of I AM GALLA is here to help. He picked his favorite pieces from our Back to School collection and styled two must-have looks for the upcoming season.

He loves this collection because it’s rugged and woodsy. The textures in Flex/Denim and knits as well as the fall colors are spot on with his style for the up and coming season.

Read on to find out more about the two looks he put together and the pieces you need to transition your wardrobe into the cooler weather.


What inspired Adam’s look: “As soon as I saw the AEO Cargo Jogger Pants I had to have them in my wardrobe. Not only is the color perfect for fall transitioning but they’re also really versatile. In this particular case I styled them with a basic white tee and a jean jacket for a casual-cool vibe.”

Get the look:
AEO Cargo Jogger Pants
AEO Legend Crew T-Shirt
AEO Denim Jacket
AEO Lace-Up Court Sneaker



What inspired Adam’s look: “I got my new bike for the summer so when I’m in the city I can just ride from my apartment to the office 10 minutes away! It’s honestly such a breeze but sometimes my outfit gets in the way because it’s too restricting and tight. That leads me to the first reason why I love the Flex/Denim collection by AEO because the fabric is breathable and provides comfort on my morning commutes. Another great perk to the flex is that they only need easy care. The lighter fabric means quicker drying after washing and also less wrinkles from the dryer, a win-win in my book!”

Get the look:
Slim Extreme Flex
AEO Plaid Western Button Down Shirt
AEO Surplus Jacket

Movie We Love: The Fault in Our Stars


Image Source: thefaultinourstarsmovie.com

Back in April, the bestselling book, The Fault in Our Stars was one of the 7 things we loved… and we were anxiously awaiting the premiere of the movie. The tearjerker about teen cancer sufferers Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters was released on June 6 and, suffice it to say, we were definitely not disappointed. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort were utterly adorable and inspirational on screen, and we have to admit, brought tears to our eyes more than once. Above all, we were inspired by the message of positivity and living every day to the fullest.

We also loved Gus and Hazel’s laidback style throughout the film. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite AEO pieces to help you recreate their looks.

Another reason we love this film is because it was shot in our very own hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If you’re ever in Pittsburgh, here are the must-stop locations where some of the scenes were filmed.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Mt. Lebanon: This is where they filmed the support group scenes and where Hazel and Gus first meet.

Oakmont: While we don’t know exactly where the crew filmed in Oakmont, this was the location of Hazel’s house. Take a drive towards the iconic Oakmont Country Club and you’re likely to see some familiar surroundings from the movie.

Allegheny General Hospital Suburban Campus: All of the hospital scenes were shot here.
