For many years, the Swedish, female talent (whose works are on display at the Guggenheim in New York at this very moment) was unknown to most of the art world. It wasn’t until the 1980s, almost 40 years after her death, that she became internationally known. Hilma af Klint, it turns out, was among the first of the abstract artists, predating many of the men who we believed to have sparked the movement (yes, that even includes you, Kandinsky). She received training […]
Welcome to New York, my friends! I just made my yearly trip to the bustling city of Manhattan. It never gets old because you can never run out of art to see and miles to walk. After exploring Chelsea Market, I visited the High Line for the first time. That’s the linear park built on an abandoned elevated railroad. It was really cool to see a space so thoughtfully repurposed and turned into a haven for nature amidst the sea of […]
I just got back from a quick trip tp Syracuse, New York. Not too much to report. It’s a small-feeling town surrounded by a good bit of nature. A few fall leaves were still hanging around, but for the most part, winter has already taken its first breath. I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find something interesting about the little city to share with y’all…but to no avail. Just take a look at the “little known facts” page on […]
I’m always looking for a connection between art and fashion. It gives the statement of your outfit purpose. The Italian Futurism collection at the Guggenheim was the perfect place to merge my love for art and shoes of the sneaker variety. Futurism was a movement in Italy in the early 20th century. Concepts of the future, speed, youth, technology, and violence were glorified. In hopes of portraying the recent changes in society, forceful lines and conflicts of planes are typical of […]
My birthday was a few weeks ago, so to celebrate, I went zip-lining in New York, Texas. The sensation of flying is the best feeling in the world. And the views were gorgeous. There was even a coke bottle in the sky that day. Can you see it?
I’m obviously obsessed with Nikes. Well you can go right ahead and add patterns to my list of obsessions. The more patterns in an outfit, the better. Be it on your shirt, your socks, your shoes, heck– even your underwear! This past weekend, I wandered around the beautifully hectic New York City and snapped tons of patterned photos. So there you have it, patterns in the Big Apple and patterns on my big apple! Scaffolding on The Plaza, Ninja Turtles, […]

Ladies, ladies, Chicago ladies. You have to get your bum down to the Nike store in Lincoln Park. It’s time to see London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and New York City in sneaker form. They were designed for the fashion capitals of the world just in time for fashion week. Take a close look at each pair. Paris is covered in a spring-ish tweed with a golden swoosh. New York is a silver toned reptilian print with pony hair panels and […]

New York is on all of our minds this week. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who’s been affected by Hurricane Sandy. NYC a great city filled with a resilient community. You’ve all proven yourselves time and time again. I was there a few weekends ago. It’s such an inspiring place with all the people, the sites, and the art. I know this is a rough time, but we’re all on your side. We love you, New York!
