The Geometrics of it

This weekend has been insanely busy for me, and today brought me to an event that I have been anxiously awaiting for the past month or so-- The Unique LA Art Show, which featured work from some of the coolest artists around LA.  Of course, I picked up lots of amazing things, from jewelry to t-shirts, which I'll be posting in the upcoming weeks.  I love shows like these because I go crazy over items that are unique and made by small business owners who truly are passionate about their work.  To this event, I chose to wear a vintage geometric-print skirt, a sheer button down top, and simple accessories.  What do you think about my look for the art show?







Skirt: Liz Claiborne (Vintage, similar here)
Top: Forever 21 (Sold out, similar here)
Bag: Alexander McQueen De Manta (similar black here)
Accessories: Bracelets- Marni for H&M; Earrings- Vintage; Sunglasses- Marc by Marc Jacobs)

  74. Your look is perfetto! I love how it's not too "artsy", but has just the right amount of eclectic flair. A little bit of my old art teacher, but with more class!

    The color red is gorgeous.

    I'm really excited to see what you got, and can't wait to read the posts. And I completely agree with your comment about independent business people. Also especially great? The fact that noone else will probably have what you got.

    Great blog.
