So my favorite artist also happens to be my next door neighbor. I bought two of his pieces at a show a while back before we really knew each other. I now have 4 total. I just adore his style. It is at once happy, bright, and fun as well as dark, desperate and sad. Saturday we went to a showing of his work in Oak Cliff.
Some of his work can be found here:
Only one of my personal collection is on the site, on the last page, the piece called “Purge” .
You can see the piece he did specifically for my husband and I just to the left of me in this photo from last winter:
It is one of my top 5 possessions.
Here is what I wore to the show. I loved this outfit.
It was casual and comfortable but dressy enough to feel good.
I also love that the dress is simple enough that the focus is on the fabulous handmade bag Erin at Haute Hardware made and the necklaces from both our shops. (Love Erin Designs and Haute Hardware at Etsy)
These are the MOST comfortable shoes. These were a bit pricy to be honest but I feel like they were money well spent.
I would be remiss not to include this photo of me making fun of my own fashion blog.
*ETA* Here I am with the artist and one of my paintings! The little one in the middle of us is mine.

(The Urban Outfitters thing…it’s mostly political and I’d rather not get into a huge debate about it, AND I’d be lying if I said I’ve done a ton or research outside of one article I saw in passing… but the owner seems to be claiming to support gay rights while donating to a candidate that opposes them. I am not a fan of hypocrisy OR hate.)
