Field Trip

Kara Walker At The Domino Sugar Factory

Kara Walker

Week before last, my art partner-in-crime Lisa grabbed me and a gaggle of kids and we went to the Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to see artist Kara Walker’s installation, A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby. The enormous, sugarcoated “sphinx-turned-mammy” is a powerful and uncomfortable reminder of the sad role black women played in the production of sugar. Only open until July 6th, this is a must-see exhibition.

Our next field trip is to the Whitney to see the Jeff Koons retrospective, stay tuned.

Summer Reading

Here are two books that I can’t wait to take to the beach. I’ve been a Sue Miller fan forever and her new book is getting great reviews, and Robert Galbraith, aka JK Rowling, just released the second book in her private detective Cormoran Strike series.

On My Mind

Office Hours

It’s time. Time to take KiC off my dining room table. When my younger daughter goes back to school in September, I’m going to work out of an office. The only downside is that it’s across the street from Céline, and that could be bad news for my wallet.

Collier De Chien

I mentioned in a post that I wasn’t wearing my black with gold Hermès Collier de Chien, it felt too blingy. However, on my way out the door to a meeting a few weeks ago, I grabbed it and popped it on. And, that was that. Now I wear it all the time paired with a gold bangle.

The Right Length

I love denim shorts for the country, but most are too short for the city. These are not only the perfect length, they have the perfect amount of frayed edge. Now, I just have to track them down, or even, make my own.

Prada

Denim and loafers in the Prada resort collection. I love the 70s vibe. Jeans and a sweater is not new, or even news, but in Ms. Prada’s hands, it certainly looks fresh.

The Merry Wives (And Girlfriends) Of Wimbledon

Clockwise the girlfriends of: Novak Djorkovic, David Ferrer, Rafael Nadal & Andy Murray

I ran this post two years ago and I’m happy that these women are still gracing the stands (maybe not Ferrer’s girlfriend…).

We have been watching some great tennis courtesy of Wimbledon. This summer I hired a private coach for my family and he is changing how we play. Watching the top seeded players helps me visualize what I am being taught. Certainly very different from when I learned in the 70′s.

The tennis aside, part of the fun of watching the matches is catching glimpses of the chic wives and girlfriends of the players as they cheer from the stands. We all know Andy Roddick’s wife, Brooklyn Decker, but Kim Sears (Andy Murray), Jelena Ristic (Novak Djokovic), and Maria Francisca Perello (Rafael Nadal), to name a few, are certainly lovely as well.
