pretty happy feather girl
i had lunch yesterday with one of the cutest, most photogenic (obvi!) gals i know… my buddy Natalie Distler. i’ve posted about her before as a happy customer here and she is also one of my models from my look book and currently hosts the “fingers” page in my shop here. she is an actress and singer and all around ball of light. she plays Denis Leary’s daughter Colleen, in the long running FX show Rescue Me, and has a really meaty season coming up, which she told me about over Native Foods goodness, and everyone should watch it!! also check out her band that she has with her equally stunning bf Kyle, listen to their music on their Myspace.
natalie is a huge Mr. Kate supporter and always rocks my jewelry in her own unique way, which inspires me so much! i love to see how people incorporate my designs into their individual style. she’s wearing all her own personal Mr. Kate wares, like the gold bolt necklace which, i don’t carry anymore in my shop, but she makes me want to revive it!
natalie’s duds: vintage boots, cheap monkey leg warmers, wildfox couture dress, urban sunnies and jacket, marc jacobs bag, handmade single feather earring from Slow on Melrose Ave, all vintage and Mr. Kate jewelry (mustache logo ring, nut n’ bolt earrings, screw crown ring, bow ring)
i heard about this art installation on KPCC/NPR (my go-to station any time i’m in my car) by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Centre, London and i just had to look up the video. i love the colors of the birds, don’t they so match the photo of Natalie above? plus she’s like a pretty bird herself. i love the girl with the twig!!!
what are your thoughts about this kind of art? what do you think is his statement or commentary?
