Vacation Look, Day or Night

dress alice and oliviabelt mangoboots kristen cavalliribag tory burch

Pink and brown in every shade always look good layered. Obsessed with this embroidered chiffon maxi dress from Alice + Olivia, with a Mango vintage belt (a belt like this is a must for every closet and this one is super affordable), Kristen Cavallari for Chinese Laundry suede boots, and Tory Burch fringe shoulder bag. This is my ideal every day look.

Stargroves

IMG_5377

A while back I got a tweet from the Brooklyn based band Stargroves with their track “Westfjords,” featuring vocals by native New Yorker Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine,” Abigail, I don’t know if we can ever stop calling you that because the film was so awesome and timeless). I try to listen to all the music young artists send me because I know how much work and passion goes into running after creative dreams so it’s important to hear and see everything being done. Even better when that listen produces something interesting. Stargroves, formed and lead by singer songwriter Teddy Watson, has an ethereal melancholic pop sound, and with Abigail’s voice and Continue reading

Stephen Shore at 303 Gallery

Stephen shore show

Stephen Shore has a new show opening at 303 Gallery in September. I can’t ever get enough of his work, the original everything as far as color photography goes. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t dropped his photo class (three semesters in a row) while I was at Bard but being a film major was expensive enough without adding photo classes before the advent of digital. I still feel like I learned a lot from him. Incredible artist. The show opens September 11th through November 1st, 2014.

The Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer

Estella_MG_2596

Don’t even pretend. I know you want to see Fifty Shades of Grey on the big screen as much as I do, if just for the curiosity of how the casting chemistry plays out. I really like Dakota Johnson and was disappointed when Ben and Kate was cancelled last year. She’s sweet, funny and has a lot of charm onscreen. I can’t find any episodes of Ben and Kate on Hulu anymore and wonder if they took them down in anticipation of the release so we wouldn’t see her as the funny girl she is and take her more seriously as the innocent girl from Fifty Shades, which I’m sure she will play equally well. The film opens February 15, 2015. The trailer below. Continue reading
