SYNOPSIS

Every family has one: the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together.  For sisters Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned (Paul Rudd), an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence.  Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue.  As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother’s unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines.  But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned’s family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him; Ned isn’t such an idiot after all.

Bleeding Hearts at Fashion Denver

Oh how we love local music, local talent, and most of all, bringing these 2 things together!  Katie Wells of GiddyUp and her “Bleeding Hearts” tees have inspired a fun project that we’re teaming up with John Common on.  We are pairing 6 local Denver designers with 6 song titles on John’s latest album creating a t-shirt collaboration.  Each designer will design a graphic to match the song title! We’re so excited to see what they come up with. These limited edition tees will tour with John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light as well as be available at Fashion Denver.

We love having Katie Well’s creativity flow out of our boutique!  John Common fell in love with his tee and wore it for the 303 Magazine shoot along with other Fashion Denver fashions.
