Art and Fashion

Before we descended into the chaos of NYFW, a few of my blogger friends and I had a day of brunch and gallery hopping in Chelsea (a neighborhood that was soon to host fashion shows in addition to art openings).

At Citizens of Chelsea with Marissa Pina and Lulu Linden

It was a great way to decompress and soak up some culture (after coffee, of course).

This latte was amazing, and I definitely recommend the bright, airy Citizens of Chelsea for warming up in the sunshine on a cold winter day.  The egg sandwich was delicious, as well!

Though not the original intent, the colorful walls and large scale works we saw were impossible to resist for photos, candid and otherwise.

The Katharine Gross exhibit at the Gagosian was particularly entrancing.  The soaring scale and the sweeping wash of colors imparted a sense of grandeur.

My all-black outfit felt right at home in the gallery district, with interesting details keeping it my style.  The fringe macrame shoulder detail on this 6th & Lane sweatshirt dress from Lane Bryant added texture to a basic silhouette, and the clear column heel on my sock booties brought a bit of architectural structure.
