Every day is an adventure... dress accordingly!


Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love

Looking for something to do this weekend that’s insanely fun for all ages and free? Don’t fret my pet, you’re in for a colorful treat! Today is the LAST day of Japanese artist (and my spirit animal) Yayoi Kusama’s Give Me Love exhibition at the David Zwirner gallery in Chelsea, NYC. Run there early, as wait time to see the Obliteration Room portion is at least an hour long (SO worth it)! These are cell phone pictures, so bear with me!


What is the Obliteration Room? From the exterior, it looks like a humble abode or a quaint little cookie cutter house. Upon entrance, you are handed a sheet of circular dot stickers and asked to keep your time inside around 3 minutes. What’s inside, you ask? A colorful explosion! A freaking party! Selfie heaven! The most adorable home I’ve ever seen! The other visitors I noticed were also instantly happy, it is SUCH a happy room.

But with the assistance of visitors leaving their marks and obliterating the room with haphazardly strewn stickers, it has become an incredible sight – a beautiful mess. All of us are tiny dots in this world and in that room, but together we can create something amazing!

I’m rocking a vintage 2-piece outfit, Indian belt, Elizabeth and James platform leather sandals and a DIY straw bag!

The gallery also continues to showcase other striking pieces of Kusama’s infamous art. All I know is that if I win the lottery, Miss Kusama will definitely be decorating my home. Or maybe in the meantime, I’ll just invite some friends over and bust out some stickers and wine – have everyone Give Me (Obliterated) Love.

When was the last time you heard gossip and believed it, even spread it? When was the last time you read tabloids and shared the news you’ve read as if it were straight from the source? When was the last time you believed in something without actually ever seeing it occur with your own two eyes?


Recently, I was lucky enough to travel to Salem, Massachuesetts and explore this beautiful area of New England whilst delving into its rich history. Though no actual witches ever really inhabited the land so well-known for them, hundreds of years ago the villagers believed in them, simply from hearsay. In 1692-1693, unexplained events, gossip, accusations, slander and naysayers all contributed to the convictions and demise of 21 innocent victims during the Salem Witch Trials.


I don’t have six fingers as this picture depicts, though I love this specter version of me!

One such victim was Rebecca Nurse, a pious and elderly woman of the time. I had the privilege of visiting her still standing Homestead and wandered about the impressive acreage of land. As I walked around and danced in the field, I couldn’t believe such a serene landscape, with the sunset’s glistening rays bathing the bare winter trees, could ever be the locale of such chaos.

 Though today we no longer partake in physically hanging the victims of the rumor mill, a hanging of sorts certainly takes place. We are all guilty of this, therefore proving not much has changed in over 300 years. I dare us all to prove that these victims did not die in vain. Speak kindly and with love. Happy Valentine’s Day!


I’m rocking a Club Monaco wool headband, vintage fox fur coat and wool snakeskin print dress, Betsey Johnson leather belt, and Marc Jacobs Oxblood boots.
