VINEYARD VIXEN

4.16.2014


Michael Kors Selma Satchel / Jeffrey Campbell Booties / Topshop pants / F21 bracelet / Urban Outfitters sweater / NastyGal necklace / F21 rings / Dogeared Layered necklaces / A&F DIY vest

          Evergreen, delicate leaves artistically wrapped around weathered Morocco red bricks always cunningly lure in my inner architect from my past life. I blame my mindless plodding around New York's gloomy, graffiti-abused buildings and the synonymous black trash-bags that pepper their "frontyard". So when I commenced my weekend trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for their Jewels by Jar exhibit (Shoutout to you, artistes out there), I was subconsciously magnetized towards the pristine gates sprinkled in morning dew shielding a possible socialite's home. It was definitely an Invasion of the Bodysnatchers moment since I don't normally find myself getting googly-eyed in sheer envy over some bricks with a smattering of greenery.Weird, don't you think?

          Despite the DSLR-toting tourists that eccentrically sneered at my arbitary photo montage, I tried to step up my fashion game to channel my inner Rumi Neely or Carolina Engman (whichever style you fashion aficionados nod in awe to). Included were a few worrisome wobbles and bumbles here and there (try saying that 3 times!) while ungracefully struggling to execute a cool-girl pose against the weakly built fence. I'm surprised there wasn't a blurry action shot of me dramatically plunging down to a mouthful of cement. Definitely one of my biggest fears to date. 

          If any of you aesthetically-obsessive Leonardo da Vinci die-hards want a spontaneous pick-me-up definitely drop by Jewels by Jar. Sorry for you Instagramers out there, my iPhone was definitely missin out on all the luxe, handcrafted gems that blinded my eyes in the dark-lit cube room. (No photography, allowed!) The area was definitely feeling as congested as my nose due to these darn spring allergies and there were lines of museum-goers. Conversations ranged from the A: fluttering butterfly beaus speckled in microscopic Swarovski crystals with intense wattage when it came to their luminosity to B: a pair of avant-garde earrings with actual beetle-wings! Definitely a double-take and a "Say whaaat?" moment after skimming through the pieces descriptions on the tactile-dense pamphlet.

What museum did you last visit?

  79. As a wine enthusiast, my travels have taken me to a wide variety of vineyards and wine areas of France and Italy, and of course to the wonderful gardens of the wineries and surrounding places. Such spectacular fountains, planters and statuary! Citrus and olive trees in beautiful planters, stone statuary in the midst of bubbling fountains, elaborate terra cotta creations…. Imagine my pleasure, then, when I walked into Authentic Provence in West Palm Beach, Florida. In a beautiful environment of running water and good smells, the owners have sourced one of the finest collections of European garden antiques that I have seen in the USA: statues, fountains, planters (note especially the classic Caisse de Versailles, and Anduze pottery), terra cotta shields, stone animals, copper pots, garden spouts, etc. They also have beautiful stone fireplaces, re-purposed tiles, and many other specialty items. They are available online at http://authenticprovence.com, and can arrange shipping anywhere in the US. Well worth a visit!
