Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern


There are only a few days left to visit the Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. I’ve gone a few times, enjoying new corners of the exhibit each time. The sheer size of the exhibit is awe inspiring, highlighting her wardrobe, her art and famous portraits of her. It gives you a true glimpse into how she lived throughout her life. I was delighted to hear that she made some of her own clothes (including the silk dresses pictured here). The tiny pintucks were made with such precision. There’s no doubt this exhibit will influence coming collections in the fashion industry. I overheard many women commenting on how they would wear many of the clothing featured in the exhibit. This just reinforces her timeless style.Georgia-okeeffe-exhibit-brooklyn-museum-2-desmitten

January List

A lot of people dread January because of the cold weather and the way it seems to go on forever. I am the opposite, I find January a very motivational month and use it to set the tone for the rest of my year. This is what is on my mind for January.


To Beautify: Keeping my lips hydrated and soft, especially on frigid days like today. Aesop’s Rosehip Seed Lip Cream¬†hydrates and softens without silicone or paraffin.

To Do: Working from home has it’s up side, but staying active is a challenge. This month I signed up for The People’s Bootcamp, a pay-what-you-wish drop in class that uses your bodyweight as resistance, which will probably kick my ass. Since working out regularly hasn’t been in my routine since college, my sneakers are way overdue of an update. I’ve had my eye on the Nike Free sneakers for a while, but let’s see how my first class goes tomorrow.

To See: This month, indoor activities are king, so hitting the galleries and exhibits around town is a sure-fire way to stay warm and soak up some artful inspiration. Looking forward to the Work Order, Change Order exhibit curated by Daniel Lefcourt at the Mitchell-Innes & Nash Gallery. Virginia Overton’s Untitled (gold) installation (pictured above) looks like a lovely piece of jewelry for your home.

To Shop: Dover Street Market has officially opened here in New York and I plan to spend an entire afternoon scouring the seven stories of luxury goods. Care to join?

To Share: I’m excited to share the new Same State look book later this week, but until then, this is your sneak peek.

To Wear: With all the layers of chunky knits I’m wearing this month, I am opting for lighter weight, delicate jewelry. I can’t stop thinking of Kathleen Whitaker’s staple earrings and ear cuff.
