This week I was able to see Roxy Paine's Maelstrom on the rooftop garden at the Metropolitan Museum. See behind-the-scenes footage of the construction here.

"the sun is certainly shining on everything"

Two things I am inspired by right now...these talented sisters on flickr and Jason Reeves's music...especially this song! And now I am off to help my great friend move into her new apartment and then my brother and sis-in-law will be here visiting for the next few days!

{One Gallery Girl Visit: Avedon Fashion at ICP}

{Shoes by Perugia, Place du Trocadéro, Paris, August 1948}

{Veruschka, dress by Kimberly, New York, January 1967}

{Dovima with Elephants, dress by Dior, Cirque d'Hiver, Paris, August 1955}

This is my first official gallery visit that I am blogging about, and the exhibition was stunning. American photographer Richard Avedon's (1923-2004) work is full of life and movement. You can literally feel the energy. Plus, I've been obsessed with Paris ever since I walked through the room devoted to his photography of Paris at night!

"If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it's as though I've neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up." Richard Avedon

Avedon Fashion 1944-2000 is currently on exhibit at the International Center of Photography Museum until September 20th, 2009.

( is the perfect little outfit to wear to the show!!)

I am what some would call a girly girl. I love pink, pretty, fluffy things. I can't help it! Hope you don't mind while I indulge. And just in case you too want to become a girly girl here is a hilarious how-to guide (ie: listen to pop music!).
