Weekly updates from BLDG 25

so sweet

i went over and checked my mail today and was surprised to find a package waiting, from an unknown address and marked “do not bend.” i carefully opened it and out slid two pieces of cardboard taped together, inside of which were two pieces of art and a card.

“dear julia…here is a little fan art i created for free people. i am an artist and budding textile designer from queens, new york.  i have been wearing free people for years now and i am a faithful follower of the building 25 blog. i love the free people aesthetic. it’s refreshing how interactive the company is with their customer base.  free people is more like a community than just a brand. thank you for all the cool clothes and inspiration. love, melissa.”


this means so much, melissa! thank you!


as if that wasn’t enough, i was also sent this amazing bouquet of flowers from sullivan owen.



made my day :)

Wow! what a great day:) I agree with Em and Taylor about using the pattern on FP shopping bags. Are those violet roses in the bouquet? those are my favorite.

I love it. That was not only sweet and thoughtful of her but I really like the art she sent you! If she has a website I’d love to see it mentioned on the blog. I’d be interested in buying prints of her work, such as the stuff she sent you!
