pop art and fashion 2012

  Last week I posted about the Andy Warhol Campbell's special edition soup cans. (I bought them by the way!) and today I'm continuing that theme: the theme of Pop Art, and how its processed by the mainstream. This fall, one of the biggest hits was the resurgence of Pop Art as inspiration, and collaborations with dead artists. Who would have thought a clutch (that I now proudly own) with a … [Read more...]

Outfit in Room.


You know I love an awesome Room to Outfit, we all do, right? But its been my dream to style an outfit IN room photo shoot.

Room/Art to Outfit…


I'm sorry but it was just too good of a match up! They are twins! It scares me a little bit that my painting looks so much like those pants and the way she paired it with a heavy dose of a white top: YES, well those match the chairs.
