The Flower Guy

The sun is out but it’s cold and not much in bloom this January, especially morale. Womp.  So I’m happy to share this little anecdote which combines a few of my fave things – creativity, pretty flowers, and just a wee bit of rebellion.

Michael De Feo is a street artist who is infamous for defacing fashion ads, throughout NYC, and then low and behold, being embraced by none other than the fashion industry.  Brilliant.


Read more about Michael on his website or this fab article from The New York Times Fashion & Style section.  And this one from the New York Observer.

which has led to his most recent collab with our beloved J. Crew.screen-shot-2017-01-25-at-11-29-41-amj-crew-flower-adscreen-shot-2017-01-25-at-11-30-18-amj-crew-flower-2



You had me at martini olives & dancing bears.

I find it fascinating and uplifting to see where some pretty & peaceful flower paintings can lead. . .

and to wear this loveliness shop the collection at j. crew.  I’m personally springing (pun intended) for this one.


And now I know what I’m going to do with my budding  (pun also intended) artists after school today.
