i love these photos from our producer! taken with iphone cross process app.
Stay inspired and dont miss a thing. Weekly updates from BLDG 25
one of our fp girls sent me these photos the other day, saying she was inspired by my vintage loves bag post last week me to make these cupcakes! she made them for the staff and customers at roosevelt field this weekend. don’t they look amazing?! i totally want to try to make some.
here’s how to make them!
buy a box of yellow cake mix and separate the batter into 6 bowls. add food coloring for red, orange, yellow, blue, purple and green. fill the cupcake liners with a little bit of each color – but don’t mix the colors! and there you go… tie dye cupcakes :)
Our lingerie buyer has teamed one of our latest bralettes with items that archieve a very fashion forward demure look. We couldn’t think of a more stylish way to
channel this lingerie as outerwear trend.
Teamed with a simple tea length black skirt a leopard belt and block heels. It’s a perrrrfect transitional piece as the warmer days are slowly creeping in!
our march catalog has some amazing items that can be worn as beach cover ups… i love how light and airy these pieces are, i would live in them all summer long. which one do you guys like best?

music festival season is here! the SXSW music festival kicks off today in austin. this festival has always eluded me – there’s always some reason why i don’t go. last year i was supposed to go, but instead i was on the couch recovering from ankle surgery. anyway, i’m kicking myself for not going this year. the lineup is so extensive it can seem a little overwhelming but there are soooo many good bands playing, and it’s a great opportunity to catch them in a small, intimate venue.
i made a playlist below of some of the bands i’m into who will be there, and if i was going to austin, here are the items i would pack!
for me, the key to packing for festivals is picking a few easy items i can mix and match, like skinny jeans, white top, denim shirt, a little black dress in case i feel like dressing up at night, and a pair of boots. i would definitely bring the cara pocket hip belt – a perfect festival belt so you don’t need to bother with a bag! and i would accessorize with some rad boot riders and a bag charm by the 2 bandits. throw everything in the mali pattern messenger, along with the aventurine pendant, bowie band ring, sunglasses and a journal, and hit the road!
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:
“(un)mending” by libbie soffer
“so long and thanks for all the fish…” by joanna platt
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.
