i am completely in love with our latest vintage loves vignette, “namaste!” the selection of indian printed dresses, worn denim and woven bags are right up my alley.  i especially love the length of a lot of the dresses and that they’re shorter for going into spring and summer. perfect summer festival dress, anyone?!?

coincidentally, one of our fp girls came in today wearing a vintage dress just like the ones above! i love how she styled it with a wide belt and boots.

lou just happened to be walking by and we couldn’t resist putting her in the photo :)

and since its not quite warm enough yet, these dresses look awesome paired with tights, boots and a faux fur jacket too!

I like the white coat in the back...it reminds me of the long one I used to have in my old apartment. I like all the assorted bright pillows. Yes, with the exposed brick it's totally like my old place.

Post image for then & now

a little over a year ago one of our fp girls adopted a sweet little bull mastiff puppy named jazmyn…you may remember, i posted some photos of her back then:

jazmyn doesn’t come to work with her mom because she’s got a little too much energy to sit at her desk all day, but she came in today to say hello and look how much she’s grown!!

I am just curious, do all FP internships require that it must be for school credit?
Felicia -Mar 26, 2011, 3:18AM
I beg with my heart and soul that you PLEASE open up a store in South Florida! It would be a great opportunity, as the economy is getting back on track and there are many FP fans here! I'm not sure if this has been considered, but if so, please do let me know. Thanks :) Felicia

Post image for the journey

the latest exhibit to go up over in building 543 might be one of my favorites  to date.  it’s impossible not to notice it when you walk in… back in the far corner by the cafeteria, a strange tower appeared last week… upon closer investigation it is revealed to be a tower of books, carefully stacked to form a rainbow of color with their spines.

“arguments #6C” by tom bendtsen.

the opposite wall displays more eye-catching sculptures like these:

IMG_3756

“(un)mending” by libbie soffer

IMG_3758

IMG_3769

“so long and thanks for all the fish…” by joanna platt

IMG_3767

IMG_3777

and then this appeared above the elevator next to our café…pillows of yarn and crochet hanging like icicles from a dr. seuss book.  this blew me away – it’s called “heaven” by melissa haims.

the exhibition of contemporary sculptures, titled “the journey,” opens today at gallery 543 at the navy yard, which is open monday through friday from 9am to 5pm.

there’s a new girl in the office, and i am in love.  meet louisiana, lou for short, the newest member of the fp pup family! she belongs to our retail operations coordinator and is a cairn terrier and australian shepherd mix.  her markings and colors are so unique she almost looks wild! but she is the softest and sweetest thing ever…she was so sleepy when i took these pictures.

why are you waking me?

Post image for 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.”

IMG_3600

this means so much, melissa! thank you!

IMG_3603

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

Thank you so much Julia for posting my artwork. I'm so excited to be on the blog! And thank you to everyone for the amazing feedback!
margaux -Mar 07, 2011, 12:38AM
