These were painted in the Art Barn of Esalen a year ago this month. I go to Esalen at least once a month... in my head. A place for learning, meditation, and relaxation, Esalen is located in Big Sur, California - one of the most beautiful places on this planet. These are very fashion-y paintings, especially because I painted them on the back of clothing tags I found in the Art Barn!

I have always had this vision of rolling racks instead of closets. Finally I moved one from the shed in to the upstairs. It houses my leather coats, boots, and special vintage pieces. - Holly
the church of clothes Or is it the gallery of clothes, or is it the nest of clothes? When your closet is really good, what is it for you? I've heard people joking about nannies who color code children's closets. Uh, is that weird? My fantasy closet is definitely color coded, and yes, I color code my children's t shirt shelves. I mean, they make me happy when I look at them! And I do the same for myself. I love having a moment, and thinking, "Do I feel green today? Red? Blue? Oh, the obvious lack of blue in my wardrobe..." But, I digress into color coding, when I just wanted to talk about closets. Holly had a closet clean out weekend. Lucky. Here are a few snaps: Vintage Chloe stacked heel!
Stack of Missoni, Rosae Nichols and Donna Karan.
Pucci vintage 1975. Fabulous!
Joe Erin boot- very comfortable. Had to have them!
Vintage dress and Lanvin heels!


dresses for spring fun
Hanging out outside the barber shop.
Comme de Garçon vintage dress.

This was really fun. My friend and I had to take photos in the Culver Hotel's bathroom. It had swan faucets! Not a vintage piece, but I love it because it looks like it.
An Original Milly of New York dress.
Holly says, "Diane Von fustenberg dress and Dolce Visa shoes. I am at the MOCA opening of art in Tge streets. Saw Tge dress. Didn't look gray on the hanger. Tried it on and had to have it!" I think this dress adds a lot to the painting's composition, que no?


australia has style!
Yes, there is a fashion week in Australia. Once again, the world is SO big. They have aboriginal wisdom, surfing, actors, and now really beautiful clothes. Sigh.
