I've been waiting to wear these new flowered pants, and this was the perfect day. I got them for $2 at a thrift store in California in April. I instantly fell in love, but left the matching oversized blazer at the store :)
After some fun in the park, we headed downtown to Chelsea. Usually art gallery openings are on Thursday nights, so when I read there was one on a Saturday, I planned my day accordingly. Art gallery openings are a lot of fun and I love the energy, but are usually very crowded. We got there right at opening time for the perfect vibes... and before the crowds had arrived, you could still have conversation and didn't feel like you were in the only ones in the room.
This solo exhibition by Rafael Silveira was absolutely stunning. Besides beautifully detailed artwork, the frames on these paintings have to be the coolest I've ever seen. Check it out!
It wasn't easy to choose a favorite because I love all of his work. It's so retro glam with a modern twist. Classy and fabulous!! The picture below is my personal favorite. Upon first glance it's amazing, but in closer concentration the detail is just...something I have never seen before! Perfection.
