Last Saturday we went to a wedding at the very swank Chambers Hotel/Restaurant/Art Gallery in downtown Minneapolis. The setting was extremely modern and fabulous, the whole wedding just put together really well. And I was especially happy because as I mentioned in my last post, I found a cheap comfortable dress to wear just a couple days before.
This is me in the entrance to the reception room (5th floor, floor to ceiling windows on every side with sheer white drapes letting all the sun in. Gorgeous.)
You can’t see the details of the front too well, but it’s a thick cotton fabric with some pleats in front and pockets. The belt has zipper-like edging with the same zipper detail on the sleeves. This is the perfect dress for:
-anyone who doesn’t want to spend the night sucking their stomach in.
-anyone who doesn’t want to freeze in a lightweight strappy dress
-anyone prone to back breakouts who needs an option besides a little strappy dress!
The brand is Intermission and it was at Marshalls/TJ Maxx last week full price at $24.99.
And this is me saying “WTF?!!” in front of what I sincerely thought was trash waiting to be taken out when I first saw it. But, no, it was a piece of “art”, complete with a plaque on the wall explaining how the artist uses everyday objects or some shit like that.
Now, I’m no art expert, I like wandering around art fairs and little galleries sometimes, but I know enough to be sure that THIS IS NOT ART! It was nothing except a pile of trash bags sitting there. It took no talent or time, and wasn’t even part of a larger exhibit making some sort of interesting statement.
But I have to say, thumbs up to the artist who figured out how to get paid for doing nothing, and to whoever paid to have this in a gallery, you are a moron.
