7 Things We Love…

Here at AEO, we’re inspired by so many different things. Food, travel, music, movies… you name it, the sky’s the limit! We’re starting a new series on the blog where you can see all of our inspirations—and maybe get a little inspired yourself. Here’s the first installment of what we can’t live without.

7-things

( Image Source:  1.  | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. )

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: KEEP YOU BY WILD BELLE
We’re digging this song from Wild Belle’s debut album, Isles. Chicago natives (and siblings!) Elliot and Natalie Bergman have created the perfect mix of indie rock and funk. This track’s addictive sound will definitely have you playing it again and again and again and… well, you get the point.

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: TRAKTOR DJ
Have big dreams of being a DJ? Well, it’s now easier than ever (and totally at your fingertips) with this awesome app. Choose from eight different effects like Beatmasher, Filter and Flanger to cut up and rearrange beats, create quick cuts and more. Plus, you can use it on your iPad or iPhone!

WHERE WE’RE GOING: DENVER
Looking for a place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo? Denver boasts one of the largest celebrations in the US. The two-day festival includes live music and all the authentic Mexican cuisine you can handle. Work off all the tacos by taking advantage of the city’s hiking trails and mountain terrain.

WHAT WE’RE READING: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS BY JOHN GREEN
It’s only one of the most popular YA books to come out in the past five years. This story about two teenage cancer patients who find each other and fall in love is a tearjerker, for sure… but it’s also full of hope and the appreciation of living life to the fullest. Not to mention the movie, which stars Divergent’s Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, is only one of the most anticipated movie releases of the year (it comes out on June 6).

WHAT WE’RE EATING: SMOOTHIE BOWLS
The weather’s heating up (finally) (we think?) and that has us craving colder foods. Smoothie bowls are the cousin of acai bowls, which are a Brazilian treat made from frozen acai pulp blended with other frozen fruit and topped with fresh sliced fruit, granola and honey. But since acai is a little hard to find, try a smoothie bowl—all you need is spinach, avocado, and whatever frozen fruit you have in the freezer! Mmm, mmm good.

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: AE SOFT FLORAL JUMPSUIT
The oversized floral print. The mismatched pockets. The bold black and white. The silhouette. Everything about this jumpsuit just screams “I’m right on trend for spring!” It’s really just a bonus that it’s incredibly comfy, too.

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: MEAN GIRLS ON NETFLIX
This movie totally made fetch happen. We kind of can’t believe it’s 10 years old already. This classic just never goes out of style. Thanks to Netflix, we’re watching the antics of the Plastics over and over again and quoting all the memorable lines nonstop. A few of our favorites: “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” “That’s why her hair is so big. It’s full of secrets.” “Whatever. I’m getting cheese fries.” “You go, Glenn Coco!”

Ultra Recap 2014

ultra

Last weekend we decided to head back to Miami – the site of our alternative spring break – to hit up Ultra, one of the biggest electronic music festivals in the northeastern hemisphere. We danced, we shopped, we partied until the Miami sun came up, we ate some good Peruvian food, oh and then we danced some more. You could probably add “raged” to that list. There was quite a bit of fist pumping, hands in the air energy. In short, it was freaking awesome! Check out our photo diary and relive the moments of Miami Music Week with us.

Edit2

Edit 3

Not everyone at the massive Miami rave was a candy kid with fuzzy boots. We found AEO style everywhere we looked! And our Soft Cutout Bralette was a clear favorite amongst the ladies of Ultra.

Edit 1

Stopping at the Worldwide stage was almost inescapable as it was the first thing we ran into every time we entered the fest grounds. But with performances by GTA & Mat Zo, We didn’t mind one bit.

Edit 7

It was hot in Miami. Really hot. The go-to outfit for just about every festival girl was denim shorts and a bralette. 

Edit 4

While big names like Deadmau5 and Guetta topped the lineup of the mainstage, tucked away on a large patch of grass was the Underground stage where the crowd was doing anything but raging. The Dirtybird Players, Kill Frenzy, J.Phlip, Justin Martin & the boss man, Claude VonStroke all offered up their house stylings to a chilled out crowd of house-heads.

Edit 8

Yup. More bralettes. This fashionista danced the day and night away in our Floral Print Bralette.

Edit 6

The Main stage was where it was at for most of the festival. From Martin Garixx to Nicky Romero to a crushing performance from Hardwell, this is where we truly raged. Also, check out how many flags are in that crowd. Music aside, it was pretty cool to meet so many people from so many different continents!

Edit 9

You’ve no doubt seen plenty of scenic pictures showing off Miami’s gorgeous palm tree dotted skylines. But we had to throw at least one in for good measure. Can you blame us? This was taken from the festival grounds on the edge near the water. Anytime we couldn’t get Internet access – which is basically like water to us – we’d head over to that pretty spot, check our twitter feeds real quick, then head back to the party.

Edit 10

Few words can describe moments like these. Check out our Vine for some video footage. It’s worth it.

Edit 14

Before the insanity of Ultra, we headed to the Dirtybird party at Caffeina Wynwood Lounge to check out one of our fave DJs, J.Phlip. She brought the booty tech acid house just like we expected. And it was totally worth the pains of finding a cab to get home. But seriously, Miami cabbies. What gives with you guys?

Edit 11

Drum & bass, breakbeat, dubstep, UK garage, you name it, Chase & Status are pumping it. The Londoners have been playing raves since before most of you were old enough to know what one was. Consider them wise sages of the London underground. Respect!

Edit 12

Late night Sunday, the Underground Story Stage changed into the Ibiza stage and confused us. But we ended up checking out Ibiza veteran, John Digweed’s acid techno set, which ended up being a nice way to clear the brostep drops from rattling our brains too much.

Edit 13

We continued on that wave of atmospheric techno by visiting the Trance Stage. It was like nothing else we had experienced, something like the church of trance. We had a hard time even getting this shot of the stage because security kept telling us to move back. We managed though, ‘cause we love you guys.

Edit 15

There were tons of after parties going on in South Beach. They started long before we got there for the very music industry focused Winter Music Conference. We braved the angry cabbies and made our way out to LMNT Studies – actually in North Miami. And we caught the Boys Noize Records party, which featured the Detroit stylings of Jimmy Edgar; Bmore’s poster boy for rap, Spank Rock and the newest project from Skrillex called Dogblood where he partners with Boys Noize himself. You can check out our Vine for some cool footage of Jimmy Edgar killing it.

Edit 16

Beats Music Cocktail party with Poolside playing groovy house and disco cuts. One of our more chilled out moments.

Edit 17

We couldn’t possibly go to Miami without visiting our Lincoln Rd. store. Surrounded by fun and fancy shops, our AEO location there offers summertime duds year-round. It made us Pittsburgh folks wish we could relocate!

Edit 18

Edit 19

While we were there, we got to meet the lovely and talented Hannah. She’s the Lincoln store’s visual merchandiser, an expert stylist! She styled herself in our Soft Floral Jumpsuit, Western Bootie, Triple Chevron Necklace and Floral Bun Wrap. Cute, comfy & ready for any festival.

Edit 21

The last time we were in Miami, left our mark in Wynwood. This time around, we captured a lot more of the talented artists who also left their mark there. Below are some of our favorites. It was hard to choose, everything looked mesmerizing! This mural above is by Ron English and the below by RETNA.

Edit 24

Edit 23

Remember this? It hasn’t disappeared yet!

Stay tuned in to our Vine, Twitter, Instagram as well as our sister, Aerie’s social media for our next adventure in Indio, California! Or maybe we’ll see you there.

Zedd: At the age of 24, Zedd has worked his way up the charts with talent that transcends him as an internationally recognized DJ and producer. Launching his career with remixes of B.o.B and Lady Gaga (“Marry the Night” and “Born This Way”), Zedd went on to produce three of Lady Gaga’s songs in the 2013 album, ArtPop.

Listen to: “Clarity“, “Spectrum“, “Stay the Night“.

Chase & Status: In 2012, DJs Saul Milton and Will Kennard took Europe by storm. You’ll love their 90’s flair in “Count on Me”… and you’ll immediately want to add it to your gym playlist.

Diplo: Thomas Wesley Pentz, or Diplo, is an L.A.-based DJ, music producer, rapper and songwriter. His mash-ups are hip-hop meets 80’s meets Miami underground.

Listen to: “Revolution,” “Boy oh Boy” and “Express Yourself.”

Armin Van Buuren: International progressive trance DJ Armin Van Buuren has been making hits since 1995, but has been recently noted for his 2013 return. With plenty of featured vocals, each track becomes a bit more emotional and that much more fun to blast on a Friday night.

Listen to: “Alone,” “This Is What It Feels Like”, and “Turn This Love Around” from his Intense album.

Kill Frenzy: He’s been making booties shake all the way from L.A. to London with his unique blend of bass and ghetto house music. He’s released on such dance music luminaries as Turbo Recordings, Hypercolour and everyone’s favorite citizens of the West Coast, Dirtybird Records.

Listen to: “Footwork.”

J.Phlip: Truly a DJ’s DJ. Her sets edge into the darker realms of techno-land, but she’s always got that booty tech sense of humor. She started her career when she was an engineering student, of all things, and she quickly rose to become one of the best, never straying from her quirky personality.

Listen to: “Coefficient.”

Gesaffelstein: Aka the Prince of Darkness, has taken the techno, electro AND hip-hop worlds by storm with his multi-genre debut EP, “Aleph.” He’s written beats for everyone from Kanye West to A$AP Rocky, and he’s just as much techno underground as he is streetwise hip-hop producer.

Listen to: His collab with A$AP Rocky, “In Distress.”

Cajmere: He’s been pushing the older, Chicago style of house music for years—and he’s definitely a veteran of the DJ world. His productions and mixes are groovy, sexy and tinged with just enough of the past to teach the younger generation a lesson about the old days. No bass-in-your-face here. Cajmere is all about the groove.

Listen to: “It’s Alright.”

 Claude VonStroke: Also the boss of the Dirtybirds, is an expert curator. His sets go so deep and span out into all directions that no matter what genre of music you prefer, you’re guaranteed to have a good time when he’s behind the decks. Influenced heavily by the sounds of Detroit house as well as the vibes of his West Coast home, everything he does is party perfect.

Listen to:“Dood.”

Dusky hails from the London school of heavy bass house music: He’s always great at weaving in the perfect vocal hook over some throbbing house beats and each tune he’s put out in the past has been a head bobbing, sonic addiction.

Listen to: “Careless.”
