WELCOME TO THE FUTURE IS OK! It only seemed appropriate to start the blog with a personal introduction. So ice breaker time? Obvi. Here is my "Two Truths and a Lie" of an illustration.
1. Josep Font is, without a doubt, one of my greatest inspirations in sculpture, CMF design and fashion. As fate would have it, I had the good fortune of running into him at the Ballet Madrid last fall. Our friendship was instantaneous. Not only am I delighted to have a new pen pal, but my closet is also pleased with its recently acquired collection of Delpozo.
2. As is true of any good Chicagoan, I have a deep appreciation for molecular gastronomy. However, my severe tree nut allergy often limits to purely visual appreciation. Which means I can, at any given time, be found walking around Alinea's "Progression," asking diners to describe their incredible food to me while I eat nut-free granola bars. Sidenote: on top of being the only one not partaking in the meal, I will likely be the only one to disobey their request to wear "informal attire... without heels." Because Saint Laurent.
3. My #1 gal pal/cat, Odette, and I take leisurely strolls on the reg.
I'll let you go ahead and decide what's real and what's fantasy. But enough about my life, let's take a closer look at what my alter ego is rocking today.
