About the brand:

Shakuhachi takes you on a trip down romance lane – luxurious chiffons and breezy silks that will make you want to float into the summer months. silks in camel and heart racing tones offset the delicate charm and give you a little bit of “cool”.

Shakuachi was birthed a decade ago in Australia from creative experimentation and a kaleidoscopic vision. Jessie White the founder and designer has cultivated a solid global presence and a broad, enduring following with style mavens and celebrities throughout the US, Japan and Europe. We have invited her label into Free People!

Post image for green pea alfredo pizza

i don’t want to overload you guys with the vegan recipes, but i found this one and i could not resist sharing it – it looks unbelievable.

this recipe is made with socca crust, but if you’re not into the vegan thing, this could easily be made with regular pizza crust.

socca crust:
3/4 cup chickpea flour
3/4 water
2 tbsp olive oil

pour into oiled cake pan. bake on 375 F for 40 minutes. set aside.

the next step is the couliflower based alfredo sauce – something i didn’t know about until just recently when my friend told me, but apparently tastes just as good as cheese-based alfredo!

cauliflower-almond garlic alfredo sauce:
1 cup steamed cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp water
4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup soaked almonds
salt and pepper

blend until smooth and spread on crust.

top with green peas, green peppers and onions. drizzle additional sauce on top and a sprinkling of oregano and shredded basil. bake for 20 additional minutes or until topping are cooked through.

yum.

I feel like together all of these peices tell the story of the girl, and i think that all the shapes he uses kind-of as words are really neat.

so sweet

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.”

Spring face

Post image for Spring face

A Spring face is on my mind – after the dull winter I’m itching to enliven myself and snap out of this greyness.
Golden highlights, spring like skin with a soft glow and subtle make up. Below are the looks that inspire my beauty, thought and the products that I want to buy.

-Mar 13, 2012, 10:24PM
i agree
May Landry -Mar 06, 2011, 8:37PM
Maca is amazing, it really balance your mood swings and when you feel stressed out it really helps you calm down and focus. And the best of all, it's all natural ! I'm not doing an infomercial here, just want to say it's something amazing that we don't really know about ! thx for posting this

margaux -Mar 07, 2011, 12:47AM
i am in love with the cala luna tunic, but the shoulders were so wide that it kept falling off! it looks beautiful on every girl in the catalogue, though! i bought the must-haves windows top in black, and i am in love with it and wear it to work all the time!

Post image for march catalog sneak peek!

it’s finally here… i have been dreaming of our march catalog for months now, ever since i first saw these images.  some of these are alternate versions of the catalog shots, and some aren’t in the book, so you wont see them anywhere else!

our march book was shot in old san juan, a small, narrow island that is the oldest settlement in puerto rico. we again worked with the amazing photographer guy aroch, who captures models aline weber and alina baikova in a haze of sun, sea-salt and sand that will leave you craving a beach getaway.
