Neo-Crocker 2010 A Modern Culture Party

Getting excited for Saturday’s Neo-Crocker Party.

The Crocker Art Museum has held the event since 2007 when construction of the 125,000 square foot addition began. Three years later we celebrate the opening of the new wing which was recently completed. Forget any notions of a stuffy socialite party, this one features fire dancers, body art, fashion and DJs. Local DJ Shaun Slaughter who is having success with his D.A.M.B.project will be making it bounce as usual and of course everyone is also excited about Rjd2!!

But more importantly, the question on everyone’s mind:

All I’m going to say is I have some blue, suede shoes in the mail which have gotten RAVE reviews.

Here’s what my friend Andi wore at one of the previous parties so you know it’s a young, chic crowd. The back detail on the dress and the hat are killer – and what better place to pose then on this Vespa you know this one just sitting around in the middle of an art museum.

But did I mention this year I am really excited to see what my friends Nicole Kniss and Justin Johnson are cooking up for their fashion project Van Der Neer. They’ve released a teaser flyer on the theme Cartoon Candy.

I have some excellent photos from their work for the Launch event in July. I have to go write a couple paragraphs for a work report though so I must leave that for another night.

Shopping and Stuff in Sacramento at September’s Second Saturday

That’s a lot of esses.

Last Saturday was the monthly Second Saturday Art Walk event. I planned to go biking with a friend on the Center for Contemporary Art, Sacramento self-guided tour of artists’ studios. First I snuck in some local shopping. I had not been to French Cuff’ Consignment new location since they moved into Krazy Mary’s space. I found a couple vintage things that didn’t fit me but would look great on someone else.

Belted blouses are very flattering and fashionable right now. A bigger size can be worn if it fits in the shoulders. Try changing the belt for a different look.

Fair Isle knits are sometimes described as a trend but they really are a classic look.

These shoes are too small for me but are fun to admire and are in mint condition.

After doing some serious buying at Krazy Mary’s (a separate post entirely) I biked over with my friend to several galleries. We saw some live watercolor and wood carving demonstrations and then headed over to Verge Center for the Arts at their new location. I was really inspired by Gioia Fonda’s studio. Sometimes I feel like I need to be a minimalist with my desk space but I think Gioia’s set-up is perfect. Just a little insight into the creative mind.
