Leather and Lace

Georgia O'Keeffe Cow's Skull with Calico Roses
The Art: Georgia O'Keeffe was an iconic 20th Century American artist. Her subject matter was largely associated with feminist ideas and sensual forms and had an organic and natural quality. This painting was largely inpired by her being immersed in the American southwest landscape. While her paintings were not steeped in allegory, they were definitely complex in substance and go far beyond what we see on the surface. The monochromatic color palette is a perfect example of this, simple and austere, yet strikingly beautiful and intricate.

The Duds: simple yet stiking and muted. Effortlessly feminine in the J. Crew Lunciana lace dress. The neckline mimics the calico roses in O'Keeffe's painting. The Hermes BeHapi double tour bracelet provides a sharp contrast to the girlie lace much like the skull in the painting. The Diave von Furstenberg kurion gladiator leather sandals provide the organic undertone the painting evokes. Perfect for the first warm day in spring or a saturday trip to the museum.
