I think on at least some level we can all acknowledge that fashion is an art form. It’s an outlet for self-expression, creativity, and identification. Mixing and matching different pieces from different time periods can lead to a beautiful mish-mash of contemporary style. When I visited the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, I stumbled across this neon light instillation by Maurizio Nannucci. It reinforces the respect I hold for those who create and daily redefine what role art plays in their life.
When I get dressed every morning, I make decisions based on my mood, how I want to come across that day, and factor in a bit of shock and awe. Now consider painting or photography, and my approach to those two mediums isn’t far from the way I choose what to wear. When you’re creating, you have something to say– a point to get across to everyone who views what you’re putting out there. You may prefer to be more understated or try to turn heads at every corner. Either way, you have a viewpoint and a voice you’re sharing with the world.
In the photos above, I’m wearing a new pair of sneaker wedges I’m nuts about! They are a collaboration between Liberty of London and Nike. I bought the Dunk Sky Hi Liberty shoes at Bodega in Boston. My dress is from Banana Republic and the headband with netting is from Goorin Bros. This is the outfit I wore a few weekends ago for my 25th birthday. In honor of another year going by, I wanted to be sophisticated and slip in a bit of playfulness with the shoes.
Now get out there, dressed your best and remember– you’re a beautiful piece of contemporary art!
