Aqua is one of the satellite art fairs, and it’s held at the retro and breezily beachy Aqua Hotel. Each room is converted to a mini showroom, and you room-hop to discover choice work from galleries all over the country. In one room you might discover Austin’s GRG, and its lovely, friendly director Karen Light; next door might be M+B in LA and down the hall, Boston’s Robert Klein Gallery. And like every other experience in Miami that week, you’ll want to take photos of EVERYTHING: women wearing clothes that literally reflect the landscape (above, Prada), giant statues featuring male genitalia, art, art, art….

PICS after the jump.

I realize that this is soooo last year, but I never got around to posting pictures from Art Basel Miami at the beginning of December. It was my first time at the art fairs – Basel being the main attraction, but zillions of other satellite fairs, gallery exhibitions, parties, art stunts all adding up to the utter visual frenzy that is “Art Basel.”

The whole point was looking. Looking at art, looking at other people. A ridiculously good-looking, interestingly-dressed crowd, to say the least.

Lots of image candy after the jump. Miami, pt. II on Monday!

Jeggings for the rest of us

On Monday during the obligatory office post-vacation catch-up, the commercial for Pajama Jeans came up – apparently something of a media blitz had begun while we were all floating in pools of eggnog and slugging it out on the couch (convenient timing, Pajama Jeans!). As much as I’d like to make fun of Pajama Jeans – a sort of democratic, every-girl, no-nonsense product – (jeggings for the Snuggie set!) and dismiss them entirely, I also have to admit that they’re actually sort of genius. They’re certainly not as fashiony as their more sleek n’ chic counterpart, but if part of the formula for succeeding in fashion today is saleability, the creators of the people’s jegging very may well be laughing all the way to the bank.

I’m very excited to announce Butler + Claypool, a growing styling and retail collective I’m a part of, along with some of some of the most talented, creative and fashionable women in town. We’re just getting started, but look out for more news and events coming your way in 2011. Special thanks to Karen at DC magazine for letting the world (or, at least, DC) know in this month’s issue, viewable online here.
