Stay inspired and dont miss a thing. Weekly updates from BLDG 25
we have a new feature on our website! now when you review an item you have the option of uploading a photo with your review! this is a great way to see how other fp girls are wearing a product you’re thinking of purchasing, or just to share images of items you bought- click here and follow the link for the customer reviews for an example. i personally find the reviews to be extremely helpful when i’m shopping online, so i think this is a great addition!

good morning everyone! if you are participating in our holiday craft swap, it’s about time to get your crafts in the mail if you haven’t already! the photos are starting to go up on our flickr page, and i’m so impressed with what i’ve seen so far…
that last picture is adorable! keep an eye on our flickr page as more photos come in!
as i’m nearing the end of on the road i was inspired to take a look at the fashion of the beat generation. beatniks were characterized by their rebellious spirit and anti-establishment, anti-materialistic philosophy, and they expressed this through stark and simple fashion. jack kerouac and his crew wore old, ripped jeans and t-shirts because they didn’t care how they looked, while others wore head-to-toe black with berets or glasses.
what else about the beat generation’s style and culture is still resonant with you today?
share your thoughts in the comments section! also for those of you reading on the road, try and finish by january 4th if you can, and check the blog for a final post about the book!
