  • Travel Story: Art Basel Miami 2017

    December is historically a hectic month for most of us- holidays, shopping, too much food, drink, etc…

    Quite honestly, it has been a hectic past few months for me, to say the least. When Christmas and an out-of-state move both fall within the same week, you can’t help but want to escape. So I did. And It was just what the Dr ordered. Art + Girl time + sunshine = remedy for stress & overwhelm.

     

     

    giggly girl time at Art Basel Miami 2017

     

    I decided to take off on a little ‘respite’ with a group of 10 girls from the Bay Area (1 apartment, 2 bathrooms) and attend Art Basel Miami this year. I’ve been wanting to go for almost 15 years now. I still can’t even believe I was able to swing it with all the tasks and to-do’s, but it was meant to be I guess.

     

    Attending Art Basel Miami this year has awakened something within me. The experience of art is priceless. The exhibits were jaw dropping at times. I was practically possessed to rip out my phone and snap, snap away. (even the fashions!)

     

     

    mesmerizing

     

     

    But I got to a point where I just had to stop- be still, observe, experience and enjoy. Because the camera will never capture the full essence of the experience, the moment.

     

    What I’m left with is the memory, and extreme gratitude for being there, making the trek across the country and having an unforgettable time. I’ve come home (albeit tired!) recharged, inspired and filled with curiosity for the next phase in the journey of my life.

     

    Not a bad view from the apartment

     

     

    There is no doubt in my mind (judging from experience) that Art creates hope. Art heals. It is evidence of infinite possibilities. It intoxicates the senses. Uplifts the spirit.

     

     

     

    Must: travel with great girls

     

     

    Not sure if it was the incredible art everywhere I turned, a group of seriously great girls, or the incessant laughs- but I feel more alive than before I left. And that I am sure, could only be the antidote to stress and overwhelm. I feel blessed.

     

    Thank you for reading and taking part in the experience of my journey.

    Get involved. Become part of the movement for a healthier, more sustainable fashion world. I believe that together we can change the face of fashion.  Wear what you love and wear what empowers you. Also consider where your clothes were made and who made them. Your purchase may empower the person who made them (or not).

    Shop wisely.
    Every purchase is a vote. Make yours count. Dress in clothing you love and that have a positive impact on you and the rest of the world.
     

     

    *The items featured on this blog are what I consider sustainable fashion and/or are items I have owned for a very long time- which I would then consider a sustainable fashion choice simply for the longevity of it.
