Chelsea Art Walk

As an avid lover of art, I always try to take advantage of the fact that I live in a city so full and readily available inspiration on every corner.  When I heard about the art walk in Chelsea last week I knew I had to attend.  I had been meaning to check out several galleries in Chelsea for a while now, but kept procrastinating, this was finally my chance!

Overall impressed by the variety and concepts I took in that night, my general feeling is that there is definitely a preoccupation with the old while nostalgia reigns in concept, drawing a ton of inspiration from the way things were. Another major theme seemed to be re-purposing of old materials.  I find this interesting as someone who is in tune with the undercurrents of fashion, because it seems to parallel exactly what’s happening on the streets and runways.  Below is a slide of some of my favorite works, including the amazing index paper installation at Pace Gallery by Tara Donovan.

 This weekend was all about exploring my lovely city.  I found myself at various tourist attractions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  I went specifically for the Prada and Schiaparelli Exhibit, (which is amazing) but found myself wandering other areas as well.  Looking around, I noticed that I could have been easily mistaken for a tourist, and exploited that observation by posing just like one.  Here are a few good shots.
Here you find me in a typical “I’m gonna do what the statue is doing!” pose.
I am wearing: Uniqlo striped dress, H&M trench vest, Zara boots, vintage Trifary necklace, and thrifted nameplate necklace.
Also wearing, vintage thrifted satchel (salvation army), paper fedora, Movado gifted watch.

Did I capture the spirit of a tourist in these shots? you can be the judge of that.
