Margaret De Patta

when it comes to jewelry, i do love a big ring. i’ve been on the prowl of late, but haven’t come across anything quite as exquisitely modern and sumptuous as these vintage beauties from Margaret de Patta:




now if only i could find that extra $9,000 i left laying around the house last week…

getty villa: an album

high art

July 2, 2012

i spent a perfect afternoon with my cousin this past saturday finally taking in the Herb Ritz exhibit at The Getty. Ritz’s delicious studies of the human form were made even tastier by the context of 90’s era fashion photography framing them (masculine lines, rock-hard bodies and pouty lips prevail). they were also an awe-inducing testament to the unparalleled richness of film photography and dark room wizardry.

it had been years since i’d been to The Getty, and i was eager to engage again with Richard Meier’s (controversial) masterpiece. we wandered at length, the experience proving just as rewarding as Ritz’s photographs. i was particularly taken with the shadows that emerge where the sun and Meier’s architecture meet, and with the interplay between the museum’s austere modernism and Robert Irwin’s fantastical sunken garden.
