While my parents were in town recently, we were lucky enough to get in to the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It was seriously stunning—like walking through a fairy tale, or sometimes, a nightmare.
One of our favorite pieces was Dress No. 13, which was spray-painted by two robots during one of McQueen’s runways shows. I just love the way this work crosses over between runway show, art installation and performance art. It’s bold and conceptual, and the process was as interesting to watch as the finished piece.
Although the show is no longer up, a lot of the work is online. I highly recommend checking it out.

To call Jessi Arrington simply a color-lover would be an understatement. Seriously, she is a rainbow—in attire, personality and design–and her blog Lucky So and So documents her whole arc. With its love of shopping, design and color, Lucky So and So may be the most colorful blog known to man. My favorite part has got to be the outfit page. Even for a girl who likes her black, the color combinations and playful attitude behind this fashion blog are inspiring. For even more inspiration, be sure to watch Jessi’s TED talk on the Undies Project, where she packed only a week’s worth of undies for her trip to TED.
