If you’ve ever been to Miami, you know it’s a city of a lot of things — European and Latin influence, a big art scene (hello Art Basel!), The Webster…and rhinestone jean pockets. This is something I just figured out for myself after traveling there for the first time this last week. So now that we have this new travel section here on CCF, let’s welcome ourselves to Miami (although as of last night, it’s more like “welcome to the movie Frozen“).
For the last five days, I’ve been exploring the wonderful city of Sydney. And because there’s only so much I can say with a filtered photo and a caption, I wanted to give you a few updates on what’s been going on down under (warning: it’s mostly eating and shopping).
When it comes to art, street art is what I prefer. There’s something about it that just intrigues me. Probably because it’s colorful, unconventional and just straight up awesome (I think this Pinterest board says it all). So the fact that I get to be a part of a super cool party that combines the best of art and style (and ChiCityFashion getting graffitied) is pretty exciting.
Well at least for the next week or so. We’ll see about after that.
Last week I shared an exciting designer collaboration — Charlotte Olympia and Tom Binns (which is now available online by the way) — that’s celebrating the Met’s latest exhibit and theme for this year’s Met Ball, Punk: Chaos to Couture. A few questions to ask yourselves here…1) Will people actually be wearing punk-inspired looks on the Met Ball red carpet this coming Monday? 2) Is punk actually back? If so, to what extent? and 3) Are you aware that a leather chandelier exists? More about that later.
Although my taste in movies isn’t what you’d consider diverse (ranging from Mean Girls all the way to Clueless), I do appreciate a good documentary. Over the weekend I discovered Exit Through the Gift Shop, a street-art-focused film, and I’m still not over it. As someone who finds much inspiration from the streets (street style, street art…I love it all) I already wish there was a sequel…or at least a reality show spin-off.
