Weekly updates from BLDG 25



I’m sure you’ve noticed all this talk about “homestead” on our website the last week or two. What’s homestead? It’s the name of our latest trend concept. Since we didn’t do a catalog inspired by this trend, I thought I’d give you some of the info we use in the home office to connect to this idea. Check out this poem written by one of our girls on the creative team…
land of buffalo bones and tumbling stones.
old guns and whispering ghosts,
forbidden love and untamed hearts.
old time desperado and willful maiden.
lonesome prairie and wild frontier.
across the wide, open, airy fields,
through tall weeds and wild flowers.
plaid skirt, dusty wind blown hair,
dandelion petals in your eyelashes.
my senses obscured by white lace and
a curling trail of gun smoke.
lay your blouse across the chair
let fall the flowers
from your hair
and kiss me
with that country mouth
so plain

and shop for pieces inspired by homestead here!

For anonymous… We don’t do catalogs for every trend, even though recently we’ve been putting out catalogs more frequently. Sometimes there’s budget reasons, sometimes there aren’t enough styles in one trend to warrant a whole book, sometimes it’s because of timing. There are all kinds of reasons. But don’t worry, a new catalog will be coming your way shortly!

Hi Emily!
I think I heard something about two different sizes but let me check and I’ll get back to you.
