I don’t know if it’s because I wear an ugly pin cushion on my wrist stuffed with safety pins for catalog jobs, or if I am just slightly obsessed with certain portions of punk style, but I love safety pins….and I want safety pin earrings. I don’t want ACTUAL safety pins in my ears, but I want nice jewelry made to look like safety pins for my ears. So here are my options, and I like them, and I am sharing them with you in case you have a direct line with Santa.
Rachel Rachel Roy jet black crystal earrings $26 (I know they seem suspiciously cheap but my friend swears if you paint clear nail polish on unknown metal earrings your ears will never know the diff.) Also come in gold tone with clear stones.
Giles & Brother tiny studs $75. Cool, and cute, man. for the every day girl who wants to remind you that she aint no diamond stud gal.
Tom Binns punk chic earrings $230. Don’t think I’m not going to hit Pearl Paint this weekend before the ‘ole holiday party and buy myself some day glo yellow paint and get to spraying some safety pins….(although I see some regrets in my future as I hide my yellow hands behind my back at said party)
My favorite safety pin earrings are by Genevieve Jones. The shape is small and beautiful and they come in all different colored metals, with and without stones. You can buy them at L-Atitude, but they seem to be running out fast, so if you are as hooked as I am, hurry…they range from $275-$575
I have been super busy over the last couple of months, so I thought it would be cool to show you a visual diary of what I have been up to. These are photos from my everyday life; work, art, and things that catch my eye. Click on the images if you want to see the whole photo.

Greetings, and happy New York fashion week! I mostly feature painters in this series, but I couldn’t resist showing you a photograph by artist Daniel Gordon. Born in 1980, Gordon likens his images to photographing loving muses, mixed with a bit of Frankenstein collaging.
Borrowing photographic imagery from the internet, Gordon makes trompe l’oeil, 3-d sculptural portraits of people and still-lifes, and then re-photographs the tableauxs. I love the way he uses recognizable “textures” like hair, and makes them into hair-do shapes, but completely off scale. Some of his work is a bit grotesque, especially with some of the hairy skin textures, but I think the piece I’ve chosen, is quite beautiful. Is the shadow created from the bust “real”? Does the shadow now look like a boy’s? The blurry pixelated blocks work to heighten our view on the subject, just as depth of field does when taking a photograph. The “window” above really makes you think you are looking outside. In other words, he plays with the lie that is photography. Click on the image below to view larger:
Here is my outfit inspired by “Sillhouette” above. Click on items below for shopping info:
Hello hello! I have been so wrapped up in trying to create some lithographs that I like, that I have not been blogging lately. bad bad bad! I think I am on the right track now, after wrestling some new techniques, and I will post some pictures soon. While I have been mired in creative dilemmas, I have been thinking about Ellen Gallagher (b 1965), who is an artist who lives and works in both Rotterdam and New York. She is repped by Gagosian, so you know she does well, and I absolutely love the intuitive and visceral nature of her work.
She is most known for her appropriation of old black and white advertisements from magazines like Ebony and Sepia. She then transforms them into narratives, repeating certain characters and adding her own details like googley eyes and sculpty. I have seen several of them in person, and they are mesmerizing and intricate.
Marni cami and shorts: Why do I need Marni pajamas? Because, I’m not sure why, but I think I’d feel like Brigitte Bardot when wearing them. And I might be able to get away with watering the garden in them too.
I have been styling up a storm lately, and now it’s time to retreat to art. I have two prints in the New Prints Summer show at IPCNY, which opens June 9th, and today I am going to the Gagosian Gallery to view the Picasso paintings of his much younger lover, Marie-Therese. (Their odd relationship is fodder for a whole other blog post, let me tell you.) For now, let me inspire you with another Pockets and Paintings post, this time about the very talented and heady painter, Mark Tansey.
Mark Tansey is a post modern painter born in California in 1949. His large scale paintings are monochromatic and are rich with conflicting and contradictory images, symbols, visual puns, and hidden imagery. He employs lots of art history in his work, and in fact in one painting you see the figures of Picasso, Pollack and Duchamp and other art luminaries all standing together in a sort of post-apocyliptic landscape.
His use of art history is also interesting since his father edited several versions of Gardner’s “Art Through the Ages”, which every art history student lugged around, including me.
Tansey has a very interesting system for coming up with ideas and subject matter. He has created what he calls “color wheels” filled with phrases, nouns, and objects and spins the dial so-to-speak, to come up with ideas for his next painting. Possible generated phrases may be: “Borgesian cartographers redeploying jouissance” or “stock characters suspending disbelief in unshakable foundations”. Wild eh?
Here he is with the table version, where he can generate 5 million different phrases.
I am trying to figure out what the phrase might have been for this painting below. Any thoughts? I love his use of blue. It looks like Delft pottery or like a blueprint.
Here is my outfit inspired by his painting above titled: “EC 101″.
Famous comedian W.C Fields once said: “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite, and furthermore, always carry a small snake.”
I just love that quote. Even though it’s a joke, it says so much. For some reason, I have been obsessed with snake jewelry lately. I just can’t get enough of it. I can’t explain why, except perhaps that I am also obsessed with Liz Taylor as Cleopatra. Whatever the reason, I thought I’d share a few fantastic pieces of snake jewelry out in the stores and available online right now:
And there is a sneaky designer at Ann Taylor who is making surprisingly cool snake jewelry for the brand. The price is right, and they are really well made. Most pieces retail for around $50. Click on photos for shopping info:
I’ve been spending lots of time in the stores lately and I like what I see! Here are a few of my favorite items available right now. Click on photos for shopping info:
Rag & Bone zig zag sweater. This is a summer sweater, made out of cotton ribbon. It’s perfect for those chilly early mornings and evenings when you need an extra layer. It feels amazing and I adore it.
And this Marc by Marc Jacobs bag looks a bit like a Celine bag, but is way less expensive:
These Rag & Bone cut-out brogues make the perfect “borrowed from the boys” statement:
Do you need red pants? If they are Isabel Marant you do! I would wear these with flats or sneakers for day, and heels and a cami at night. Super versatile, and the color makes them special:
And lastly, a gorgeous link with pave bracelet from the very talented Eddie Borgo. I bet the next move for him is teaming up with a fine jewelry brand to create luxury, tough pieces that we can all drool over…
Today I am featuring the very talented painter Michael Borremans. He is from Belgium and was born in 1963. Originally trained as a photographer, he turned to drawing and painting in his mid thirties. This is kind of wild to me since he is a really good painter, so he must have had a natural gift to have picked it up so late.
He is influenced by the styles of Manet and Degas, and Velazquez, and he uses photographs he has taken himself as reference for his paintings. He also commissions sculptures of the human figure which he then paints from. His paintings are seemingly quiet and contemplative, but they really hit you over the head with their air of restraint and strong views about society. Here are a few of his paintings. The woman with the bees is called “American Actress”, I wonder what he means by this?
This very masterful painting is called “Automat”. His light and detail are really stunning.
Here is my outfit inspired by this painting. I am crazy about the Michael Kors cork wedges…
I have been styling a lot for Seventeen Magazine which has been a lot of fun. Happy, bright, innocent, and carefree would be words I would use to describe when styling teen stories. However, I might not use those words to actually describe a teenager. I think maybe broody, immature, rebellious, and insecure would be more appropriate don’t you think?
Anyways, the fantastic accessories editor at Seventeen, Jasmine, recently turned me on to the jewelry line called By Boe. I am completely smitten with the clean graphic lines and the reasonable prices. Most pieces are under $60, and everything is very well made, and looks more expensive than it is. Not just for the teen set, I think women of all ages can find something they like from By Boe. I personally will be buying the Bauhaus hoops, and a few rings to stack on a finger or two.
