Before I Die . . .

Public installation artist and urban planner Candy Chang converted a wall of an abandoned home in her New Orleans neighborhood into something inspiring. With chalkboard paint, stencils and some chalk, residents can now write their dreams on this wall. “It’s about turning a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us.”  I would write: Before I die I want to…be a grandmother for a very long time! What would you write?


Fendi F/W 2011

Silvia Venturini Fendi described the inspiration for her and Karl’s Fall collection as a buttoned-up-to-the-neck art teacher who is still wild enough to wipe paintbrushes through her hair and unleash the animal within. Honestly?! Not only do I absolutely adore that imagery, I’m crazy about mix of rich blues, mustard, and brick, the ribbed leggings, the oversized ruffles, the tri-colored fur, and the amazing Stegosaurus-esque headbands designed by Jennifer Behr.
