Inside This Fashion Vet’s Home

Don’t you love stepping into someone’s home that completely embodies their spirit and personality? And although it may not reflect the nook you’ve created for yourself, you enjoy every second immersing in their environment. That is how I feel every time I walk into this apartment.  (more…)


Whitney Museum with Jeff Koons

Sex and the City, Season 2 Episode 10 – “The Caste System”

Wiley Ford: How much for this piece?
Charlotte: The fire extinguisher? That’s a real fire extinguisher. For the gallery, in case there’s a fire.
Wiley Ford: I guess I’m a total idiot.
Charlotte: No, it happens all the time.
Charlotte: You can have it.
Charlotte: Take it.
Charlotte: You can say you got it at the gallery.
Charlotte: People will probably think it’s a Jeff Koons.
Wiley Ford: You are adorable.


Behind The Scenes With Jordan Matter | Finding Serendipity

For National Dance Day this year I highlighted my love of the artform and one of my favorite photographers, Jordan Matter, creator of “Dancers Among Us.”

I’m so happy to share his first video workshop, “FINDING SERENDIPITY – Look for the Light,” which is a great behind-the-scenes sneak peak of how he captures his shots.  (more…)

Charleston, South Carolina

“Breakfast Of Champions”

Last Friday I posted this pic on Instagram:

It’s a shard of colored plexi that I literally picked up in the middle of a dirty NYC street. Like I said, yeah weird even for me. But I just loved the color and light it was reflecting, so I brought it home. I totally forgot about it and was going to throw it away, but before I did I wanted to make something with it. (more…)

Back To Black

I unashamedly admit that I have a copious amount of nail polish product sitting at home. So two weekends ago I felt like making a simple black on black “Nail Pollock,” as I like to call it. I think I enjoy the residual mess I made painting the canvas and pouring the nail polish more than the final piece itself? What do you think? (more…)
