The Style Curator

Whether I am trying to come up with the perfect concept for an art project, doing a pull, or styling, my mind is always consistently screwy. I've decided to intensify this screwiness by doing an artist/stylist mashup to merge my two worlds. No one ever said there was anything wrong with a wedge inspired by Picasso. A frequent post comparing an outfit to a masterpiece? Hell yes.

A serious appreciator/wannabe of Yayoi Kusama.

Ferragosto me up, stat

Ferragosto is the european name for the lovely long-ass break in August.  The creatures of Italy and Spain civilians usually head south for some holiday fun and tan their butts to their crinkly finest get bronze (note: I am really a huge pastoid pale, its justjealousy that their skin can clash with their clothes and mine cannot). I rather be Italian than the mix that I am Milanians and Barcelonians rock (definitely not PC).

        

Joan MiróFerragosto II, 1961


And now for the A-R-TEE.  Miró was a cool cat.  He knew the lines that make a story on canvas.  He knew the ins and outs of paintings farms and shit.  He was Surreal fo’ real.  More generally, he was a poet of art.  I like thinking of artists that really know how to rock a canvas or a slab of marble as poets because poets are hot poetry is magic and art is magic.  MAGIC.  They are one of the same.

I also like to refer to styling as poetry.  To put together that grandma sweater top,awkwardly cropped pants, shoes, jewelry, socks, underwear, occassional bra, hair styling, lipstick, nailpolish, vest… (ask me what I don’t have on) takes true grammatically correct fashion.  And so, I bring to you my outfitty of choice.  Of course Miró was in my heart when putting together said ensemble.  I even included that pop of yellow in my sexy satchel.  As the temperature nose-dives I appreciate the addition of a coat and any possible thing you can add on to create shapeless fabric overload.  Enjoy my Miró Magic.
