Hope you didn't miss this.

Georgia O’Keeffe @ The Whitney: I had the pleasure of catching this show right before it ended-- I did so on a Friday, which means long lines but FREE or donation-based admission! Anyone who is familiar with Georgia probably associates her with the zoomed in, super-saturated, sexualized flower paintings of her mid-later years. What I loved about this show, though, was that it gives us a taste of what came before this, which was a plethora of Abstraction series. In the scope of Art History, these works were truly ground-breaking. It baffled me that these very contemporary-feeling works were created as early as 1915; the colors and the content so vibrant they look as though they were freshly painted...

Red and Orange Streak, 1919. Oil on Canvas. 27x23
(Note: I found out from a friend, Deborah Molinelli,who has been doing LOTS of research on Georgia, that the yellow arc represents the sound of calves crying for their mothers, because they were were separated from them at night.)
Untitled (Abstraction Portrait of Paul Strand), 1917.
Watercolor on paper.

What I've been doing lately, Mr. Hudson in NYC
"I met a gypsy and she hipped me to some life game.
To stimulate then activate the left and right brain.
Said baby boy you only funky as your last cut.
You focus on the past your ass'll be a has what.
Thats one to live by or either that one to die to.
I try to just throw it at you determine your own adventure."

Chartreuse is one of my favorite colors! The eclectic mix of furniture and light fabrics make this room beautiful but easy. More of her work at:

Vogue does it right in 2010.

I LOVE the colors, geometry, and details of this dress.
However, I don't love the styling: shoes, hair and scummy boys.

Decade on the carpet.

These are some of the best Red Carpet looks of the last decade. According to moi...
What do you think?

Neon is here to stay.

As my close friends can attest, I have always had a secret love for neon. For their Spring collections, it seems that several designers are using neon (however modestly) to add unexpected pops of color and shape. LOVE!

Marnie At Midnight, Brooklyn
Kali is the Hindu Goddess associated with eternal energy. I've used her vision as an inspiration while practicing Yoga, but in 2010 I intend on bringing this energy and fierceness into my everyday life. Namaste!
