Being the Golden Child never looked so good. Gold metallics on the New York runways define a new neutral for Fall 2013. Seen in head to toe ensembles, gold metallic jacquards range in hues from white gold at Suno to burnt amber at Wes Gordon.

Maybe it’s the new year, or maybe it’s just me, but I am super motivated! Between art openings, birthday celebrations and dinner with friends I organized my entire office, found the beauty in Brooklyn streets and trees, did a little watercolor work and went to the Brooklyn Museum.
1: Oil stained Brooklyn sidewalk, loving the color palette / 2: My organized office bookshelf / 3: Yeon Ji Yoo’s enchanted ethereal forest in the Brooklyn Museum / 4: A quiet moment in the Brooklyn Museum during the overcrowded Target First Saturdays event / 5: Minimalist planters at the Detroit Metro Airport / 6: My black watercolor moment / 7: Brooklyn trees entangled with cloth
There’s no surprise that I love to dress in neutrals, but my wardrobe heirs on the side of darkness. Time to mix things up for winter with inspiration from these amazing layered looks in not necessarily black tones. Layering chunky knit textures in camels and grays with sleeker pieces in the same tones really makes a statement while warming you up for winter. E

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their loved ones! Here are my current rose gold beauty obsessions, I never leave home without 2 of these!
1: Josie Moran Aragon Moisturizing Stick- This oversized chapstick is great for lips, dry skin and fly away baby hairs, making it a mainstay in my handbag for the past few years / 2: Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Clear and Rose. This moisturizing lip treatment allows my lips to stay super soft with color or without. / 3: I’m into layering nail polishes these days and to get a great high-low contrast with glitter polish, I use a tonally darker color for the base coat so the rose gold glitter looks more dimensional.
1: Standing on Alex Nunez’s Art Installation (wearing helmut lang top and a detacher shoes) at the Hunter MFA Thesis art show / 2: I saw the sign, Brooklyn, NY / 3: While Christmas shopping in Soho, I snapped this image of a dream catcher in the Clic Gallery window / 4: Sunny Brooklyn Street, loving the peach + black + white color combo / 5: After selling some clothes at Beacon’s Closet, I traded in my store credit for these Theysken’s Theory double waistband jeans that I’ve coveted for months and found these great vintage suede shoes / 6: Our Christmas tree replaced the skateboard that is usually strapped to my boyfriend’s back / 7: Lounging at Yotel for the Spirit and Flesh Magazine launch party (a detacher shoes + jerome dreyfuss black johan bag) /

Loving this editorial entitled New Luxe from Stolnick’s Fall/Winter 2012-13 issue. Between the androgynous looks, simple styling and neutral color story there is nothing here I don’t like. I also love the idea of wearing lighter colors in winter, it is a great alternative to black.

Simplicity. Abstraction. Desaturated. All evident in my current art, fashion and interior musings.
