Arden Way Birthday Bash

On Tuesday, our Arden Way store celebrated its 20th birthday with a huge bash, all customers invited. 20 years is no small accomplishment! To everyone who showed up, a million thanks for partying with us and for your patronage over the years.

Pitchfork Music Festival

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of attending Pitchfork Music Festival yet again. As per the usual, it was a blast! Thanks to Andrew from our Evanston store for sending us these sweet snaps.

Crossroads Bay Area Holiday Party

On Sunday we glammed up, partied down, and ate some delicious Indian food before hitting the floor for Bollywood dance lessons. I could tell you how much fun we had, but a picture is worth a thousand words and we have lots of them! Many thanks to Adriana from our Oakland store for taking these photos.

Crossroads and Two Point Oh! LA Celebrate the Holidays

Yesterday we enjoyed an evening with some of your favorite fashion bloggers at the glamourous Palihouse in West Hollywood. The Two Point Oh! LA Snowball was a huge success and we were honored to be a part of it. It was a pleasure meeting you sparkle-clad ladies and lads! If you missed it, check out these behind the scenes photos taken by our team.

Halloween at Crossroads

I love Halloween. We dress up, we eat candy, we pretend to be someone else for a day…or, if you’re like me, the whole weekend. Really, what’s not to like?

Our teams from around the country got dressed up and showed their alter egos. Which is your favorite?

Gingerbread Couture – Managers Meet!

Smarties, Reese’s, Tootsie Rolls and Red Vines – no, it’s not our leftovers from Halloween, but an afternoon spent snacking designing gingerbread house-inspired outfits. Last week, our team of managers came from across the country to the Bay Area for a 2-day meeting where we learned a lot, but also had a ton of fun. We challenged our teams to create outfits with piles of candy and a few black basics. The results? Balmain, Missoni, and a lot of laughs. Miss you guys already!

Crossroads Turns 20

Last week, we celebrated our 20th birthday with you. Around the country, all of our locations celebrated with birthday cake and hourly gift certificate raffles, and some of us dressed in 90s garb to commemorate the era we come from. Thanks to everyone who joined us for our party!

Crossroads Goes to Treasure Island Music Festival

There are but two words for our booth at Treasure Island Music Fest: epic and awesome. It was the kind of festival in which so much is going on at one time, it seemed to be infinite. Thanks to everyone who came out to our little spot on the island and made the weekend so special – big up to Lindsey, the cool girl from Santa Cruz, and the guy who bought the Mohawk hat I liked! The highlights of the festival? For me, it was watching Empire of the Sun and the Naked and Famous, as well as meeting the very cool Jennie and Jackie from Going West and The Hourglass. Did you miss us? We’ll be back next year, selling our sweatshirts and riding the Ferris wheel in style.
