Wednesday Whim - How Famous Artists Would Plate Thanksgiving Meals

Seeing as Thanksgiving is tomorrow, this fun food post is incredibly appropriate. SF-based artist, Hannah Rothstein, took an unique approach to plating a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Inspired by renowned artists like, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollack, Pablo Picasso and more, Hannah Rothstein carefully crafts her plates to mimic "how these artists would plated their food." The result is well executed and wonderfully creative.

What's even cooler about this work is that Hannah Rothstein created 25 limited edition 16"x 20" prints (except the Sherman print at 16"x18"). 10% of the profits will be donated to the SF-Marin Food Bank! For more information, click here.

Happy Thanksgiving! Nom nom...

Ahead of the Holiday

 Leather jacket: H&M Icons Collection (old), T-shirt: Gap, Jogger pants: Ross (℅), Black boots: Asos, Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Forever 21 necklace, Lionette by Noa Sade Sinead bracelet, 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target bag

When it comes to the holidays, I enjoy dressing up. But, for Thanksgiving? I like to relax a bit since I know I'll indulge with food. That's one of the top reasons Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  

I didn't grow up with traditional foods for Thanksgiving but, my husband sure did. He looks forward to certain things every year we're with his family. Turkey. Ham. Mac n' cheese. Collard greens. Banana pudding with Nilla Wafers. I have no doubt this year's food will be like other years we've spent with his family. 

So, I'm definitely going to prepare myself. I'll likely be in a variation of this look and on the couch in a food coma watching football.

Navy, Stripes and Plaid

 Sweater: 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target, Stripe shirt: H&M, Plaid shirt: Forever 21, Jeans: Forever 21, Silver shoes: Nordstrom, Accessories: H&M beanie, Aldo's mirrored sunglasses, 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target bag

Last year, I was all about this sweater from the 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target collaboration. I adored the comfy knit, navy color and subtle jeweled collar. The elements I loved then are still elements I love today...and maybe even more so. 

With the current chill of the fall season, throwing on this knit sweater is perfect.

 Dress: Gap, Heels: Prabal Gurung x Target (old), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Alexis Bittar necklace, Marc x Marc Jacobs watch, Jimmy Choo x H&M bracelet, Thrifted Coach Willis

Although Gap's recent campaign has emphasized normcore, I didn't give it much thought. As evidenced in this blog, I fancy bold colors and eclectic patterns just as much dressing simply. The notion of "dressing normal" just sounded counter to my instincts. Yet, as history has taught me, I'm not one to ever say "never say never" (anymore) and here I am…looking quite "average." A simple dress with heels. Nothing more. Nothing less. It is what it is. 

It's actually refreshing if you think about "dressing normal." Throwing on the basics and looking just as put together as the other more ostentatious outfits is awesome. It's even liberating to know that I feel just as good without all the "extras." 

But, don't think this one look will stop my eclectic style vibe. After all, I am who I am.

Wednesday Whim - Matilda Residence

I've been more and more inspired by interior spaces lately and this one immediately attracted my eye. This home, located in Perth, Australia, was formerly an old brick and metal roofed home from 1903. The design concept was to restore the charm and character of the existing residence and still incorporate modern elements. Designed by JUO Studio, they achieved the balance between old and new with material selection and interior design choices.

I utterly appreciate the ability to balance old and new architecture into a space that still feels livable.
