Snuck out on a rainy day last week to check out the Punk: Chaos to Couture Exhibition at the Met.
Naturally I got distracted and played with the statues in the New American Wing.
Isn’t Fragilina (1923) just beautiful? One of the most pristine statues in the New American Wing at the Met, a marble sculpture of an idealized female nude by Attilio Piccirilli (1866-1945). According to the sculptor, “every person has his own ideal of beauty stored away in his subconscious mind. When facial characteristics are precisely delineated, the observer is denied the opportunity of personally visualizing his ideal type.” Basically Attilio was like, “I’m going to make the perfect woman: a handcrafted smokin’ body + face of your subconscious’ choice”.

When you're itchin' to get out of the city, yearning for building-less horizons, begging to be belly up on some 100 ft. yacht somewhere off the coast of Mallorca- do what I do. Just throw on your bikini, a tail-less mermaid skirt and soak up the titular “Summertime Sadness”, because people have real issues.

Sartorial versatility has been taken to another level when we turn our bras into acceptable versions of tops. In this case, lately I’ve found that most of my tops of which are not “cropped” seem to fulfill the dual role as a “tunic” in the case of acting as a top, and a “super mini/oopsie there’s my hoo ha” as an unacceptable form of a dress. In order to rationalize this super mini look and more importantly to refrain from humiliation where my friends suddenly abandon me in public to disassociate themselves from that chick who forgot to put her pants on, I never leave the house without my phantom shorts. They maintain the illusion that my pants are in fact missing, however, when my riskaaay getup is put to the true test of natural forces (i.e. wind/sun/my sudden impulse to jump up and down), I won’t be mortified, but saved by my phantom shorts.
HAPPY FRIDAY TO ALL!
