Art Rocks! Rocked

Leandra Medine | May 13, 2011

Yesternight, after having a bad ass time styling windows with Tibi at Bloomingdale’s and pretending to be Vanna White, showcasing the mannequins, their accessories and…myself, I hopped on over downtown to the Bowery Hotel for the annual Art Rocks! charity benefit.

Photoed here with my main squeeze, Danielle, or rather, the Danni of DANNIJO
(And in case you’re wondering, I’m wearing a Charlotte Ronson shirt, Rag & Bone skirt as dress and Chris Benz x Alejandro Ingelmo shoes.)

The gay to straight man ratio was looking up for all the single ladies in the room. It was almost as strange as the influx of boat shoes present at the usual flannel adorned grunge spot. No questions were asked though, we just drank it off with copious amounts of Kanon Vodka. Peep a full, more cohesive recap and scour some photos from the night here. There are rainbow marabou feathers in there, so it’s definitely worth that peep.

    Love that you wore the skirt as a dress, looks really pretty that way. But I think if you had worn it as a skirt, it would've been torn to shreds and stomped to death by the end of the night!

    Anyhoo glad you had a good time. :-)

    OMG reading this blog is rubbing off on me. Yesterday a sales associate showed me a blazer with ruffles–RUFFLES!–and I said, "I'd rather wear a blazer with spikes rather than anything with ruffles. Love yer blog! :)

    I love your outfit, you are so tall and stylish. The combination between the shirt and the dress it’s great, two different textures and primary colors. Also the boots are in line with the upper shirt. The purse combines perfect and don’t catch too much attention. Great!
