1000 Voices For Compassion

1000 Voices For Compassion

You may wonder what a fashion and style blog has to do with compassion. After all, these things are often thought of as frivolous and superficial and having nothing to do with any deeper context. But I have a unique point of view that is accompanied by an unconventional opinion about fashion and style as it relates to people with disabilities. Namely, that we are entitled to both, even though they may be harder for us to come by.  I believe that fashion and style can not only change the way society views a person with a disability. It can also change the way they esteem themselves.

Art Pods and Art for Animals

Art Pods and Art for Animals

The Inaugural Modular Art Pods Experience was "an open source collaborative art tunnel" comprised of multiple sections, or pods, created by various Nashville artists. But the real reason I came was to meet my friend Arthur Kirkby. Calling Arthur a talented artist is the understatement of the milennium. He is easily my favorite living artist, and his vivid Warhol-influenced portraits of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and others are truly masterful.

Saints and Sinners Pictorial

Saints and Sinners Pictorial

Hosted by 12th & Broad, Saints and Sinners gave us all a chance to choose between the seven deadly sins or the seven holy virtues in an interactive manner. Guests were encouraged to eat, drink and play games, along with many opportunities to get in shape and donate time, money, or unwanted items to their community. We were also encouraged to, "wear red if you're a sinner or white if you're a saint".

Before And After

Before And After

Today's entry is really a series of mini-posts with one thing in common. Something is different, altered by time and effort; by the application of a product or a discipline. Oh, and there are some cute clothes and animals, too.

UAL

How about a little Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Gucci, Balmain, Mr Q, Tom Ford, Balenciaga, Rag & Bone, Givenchy, or Zac Posen at 70-90% off? Have a look inside UAL, one of Nashville's best kept secrets. This nondescript little store is tucked into a strip mall that's hiding in plain site on West End Ave, which is a main drag downtown.What looks like a little shop from the street is actually very spacious and filled with thousands of pieces just waiting to be taken home.

Party At Tiffany's

Party At Tiffany's

The holidays are winding down for most of us. The halls have been decked and the presents unwrapped; treats consumed and stretchy pants donned. Not so much over here. Three days before Christmas my better half got knocked flat by a full-blown bout of the flu.  hankfully I had a flu shot so I didn't catch it, but it meant our plan to wait until the last minute to get our Yule-tide act together fell as flat on it's back as he did. That doesn't mean my entire holiday season was a bust. Last week I promised you some party pics. Have a look at these.

Christmas Village

Christmas Village

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 
Ev'rywhere you go; 
Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again 
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow. 

Of course, there are no five-and-tens anymore. The modern equivalent is the flea market, which is where the Christmas Village is held every year. It was an insane frenzy; a madhouse of people. But it was also festive, and cheerful, filled with decorations, ornaments, trinkets and treasures.
