Happy Sunday Lizteners,
I’m officially on my three-month Summer break and just got back to Luxembourg from New York City yesterday. Cannot believe I’m already half-way done with school..(got my AAS degree baby!) But for anyone who’s thinking about studying abroad or who’d like to experience a different culture and way of life, take that plunge while you can, because you never know where it could potentially take you. Me making this decision of practically starting a new life in what I consider one of the most exciting cities in the world, has truly helped me grow as a person both personally and professionally and I wouldn’t change a thing looking back.
As I am now back home in my bedroom putting together this post, I am getting a little nostalgic, because I feel a deep connection to this city. However, I do have an amazing Summer planned so definitely stay tuned for a lot more travel posts.. (that’s all I’m gonna say for now hehe). This particular post was shot at the Noguchi Museum in Astoria, Queens. The foundation and garden museum is displaying the sculptures, architectural models, drawings and furniture designs of American-Japanese sculptor Isamu Noguchi. As someone who is fascinated by minimalistic design concepts and modern architecture, I wanted to combine that with my love for fashion and what better way to do it than at the Noguchi Museum? I don’t know if you’ve ever listened to the Impossible Conversations between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, but in one of the sections Miuccia reveals how she believes that fashion is not art, but merely just a commercial thing, whereas Elsa believes that it is art. I have to side with Elsa here. Always have, always will. Architecture, furniture, sculpture, fashion design are all different forms of art to me, beautiful and unique in their own way so that’s why I’m sharing with you a combination of all of those elements today.
I’m excited to announce that my wonderful roomie Madi of two years and fellow art, modern design and architecture lover collaborated with me on this post so make sure to also check her out on Instagram (@madixnyc) to see more beautifully curated and aesthetically-pleasing shots of all things fashion, art and trendy coffee shops. Also, you can see how in-sync we are, because without trying, we even managed to coordinate our outfits: Both her cigarette pants and my over-sized blazer are featuring houndstooth.
Without further ado, enjoy the pics and I’d love to hear your thoughts, opinions and/or recommendations down below so please don’t hesitate! 🙂
Have a nice rest of your day guys!
Much Love ♥
