Birthday gifts: Balmain belt

DressCode

May the countdown to my birthday begin! I officially turn a year younger on May 15th! Yeahee lol

What do you do when a birthday gift you love doesn’t fit and is out of stock? Regift of course. I’m giving this gorgeous belt to my boyfriend when he gets home. I’m also buying a belt hole puncher and possibly taking it back…

In better news, I also received this white Balmain logo belt! I was hoping it would fit through my belt loops, you know how loosely Balmain pants fit on the waist, but it doesn’t. Still it pairs beautifully with a long, crisp white button down.Tell me what you think…

Thank you!

Hauser + Wirth: Subodh Gupta

DressCode

Next weekend will mark the last of New Dehli-based artist Subodh Gupta‘s exhibition “Seven Billion Light years” on display at Hauser and Wirth from 10 Feb – 25 Apr 2015. As the weather is finally warming up, I search for things to do which involve my love of walking, my love of beauty, and my love of fine art.

46 weeks ago (thanks IG) my boyfriend took me to Hauser + Wirth, located at 511 West 18th Street New York NY 10011 in Chelsea, and I fell in love with the openness of the venue so we try to go whenever a new exhibit is available.

Tell us about your favorite galleries in the comments below and I will make a note to visit them!

I’m glad I’m not famous: Solonge Vs. Jay-z

DressCode

Poor Solonge.

She beat up Jay-Z and couldn’t have the privacy of keeping it in the family. Having brothers I know this is actually quite normal. Don’t act like it isn’t. Especially coming from a little sister. It’s just that the parties involved are mega-famous and have hired security. Since the release of the video footage taken in an elevator at The Standard hotel on the night of the Met Gala here in New York City I can’t stop watching Solonge, Beyonce’s baby sister, throw hands, feet, designer handbag and heels at her brother-in-law Jay-Z as Beyonce just watched. Princeless! You never know what happens behind closed doors of the people you think have few problems. Very dysfunctional exchange between the three of them which is even more interesting being we’ve hardly seen this closeknit family have any problems in public. I’m about to watch it again. 

Train wreck in the making…

I almost passed over this dress when I saw it on the sale rack at Barneys New York Brooklyn location last year but I am so glad I tried it on. I had to buy it! It’s beautiful by itself on a warm breezy day but even cooler when I wear it layered under my David Bowie graphic t-shirt and on-top of my J-brand black neoprene pants in the freezing NYC winter. Love this piece!

Below I styled it sporty, for a test shoot with Ford models, by pairing silver bangles I bought on the street in soho and a fresh pair of retro Charles Barkley Nike CB94 high top basketball shoes, a last minute genius idea my uber stylish boyfriend Milton Campbell gave me.
