Things We Love: She & Him

Today brings us the first installment of a never-ending series called “Things We Love,” chronicling, yes, the things that we, the stylish and hip employees of Luscious Verde, love. Expect reports from the worlds of fashion, entertainment, and any other worlds we feel like exploring.

We here at “the Verde” work extremely hard to make sure each order is the model of perfection. But that’s not to say we don’t kick out the jams when we’re designing, printing and assembling those orders – if we learned anything from “Cinderella” (other than staying out after midnight can lead to some bad things), it’s “whistle while you work.”

Lately we’ve been smitten with “Volume One,” the first album by actress Zooey Deschanel and singer-songwriter M. Ward under the name She & Him. It’s a simple, short album that sounds a bit like Motown filtered through the voice of a 1940s torch singer. Yeah, it’s pretty great, and the video for the first single, “Why Do You Let Me Stay Here,” is pretty cute too. Check it.
