Taking a hint from the pros….this is how classic summer style is done. Love Love Alexa Chung’s dress.
I’ve been feeling less than awesome lately, even though I’ve been extremely productive…don’t know I’ve just been in a bummer mood. I figured some art always cheers me up so here’s the post o the day!

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! I’m enjoying some thunderstorms and a cup of coffee and I have to say it’s pretty grand. I sure did miss having proper storms living in SF, and we’ve had our fair share of them since I’ve been back in good ol’ nyc. Enough about the weather though…. I was having a thought nugget and voila! I post this:
I’m sure there are many of you out there that are extremely talented folks and I’d like to post some of your work on the site! I’ve decided once a month I’d like to do a reader contribution post with all of your wonderful work. Paintings, Illustrations, Photography, Fashion Sketches…what ever as long as it generally fits in to the theme of the blog (which is pretty varied). I’ll do the first post on July 1st so send your best work (please limit to 2 samples please) for me to post up on the blog to share your talents with the world, to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to see your work!
and here’s a niblet of a new photo series I’m working on called Rapid Expansion:

Happy Friday everyone! Before I get in to these really awesome images I beg of you all for some feedback. That’s right I said beg. I need help. I’ve noticed recently a sharp drop in followers and would love to hear from you all how you think I can improve the blog. Let me know stuff ya’ll!
Ok these are digitally manipulated photographs by Laurent Chehere that are a metaphor for travel, to me full of whimsy and wonder. I need a little of that in my life sometimes. via Hi Fructose

Described in NYTimes as an ‘unruly organism of a show’, Documenta 13 is a sprawling exhibition of art going on in Kassel Germany. I’ve not seen it, I spent the last few days in Tennesee not Germany, but I felt struck by a battery of emotions about the exhibit (and art itself) after reading Jerry Saltz’s article on NYMAG about ‘Post Art’ and that the way we view art will continue to change. Which I agree is inevitable in an ever evolving field but I’m not sure I enjoy the glimpse of the future quite as much as he does. If these things are the shape (or lack there of) of art to come, I’m not sure I like it. But maybe I’m just being ‘roped off’, as he says. What do you all think?
Check out the article and check out some images from Documenta 13.
I think the title of this editorial is completely ridiculous but I think the images are beautiful and the clothes, by Natalia Grzybowski Hybrid Collection, are stunning so I’m willing to overlook that one tiny flaw. Via Fashion Gone Rogue
I’ve given snippets of some of the looks from the Resort collections but here is my full ‘Best of’ list…this may be the first time I haven’t included Marc Jacobs in the best of anything list but I just didn’t love his looks this go around. Which are ya’lls favorites? Full runway details here
