my clothing & accessories design
east-meets-west minimalism

my site

the look
dressy utilitarian

my concept
useful, economical, modular pieces that can be mix-matched in numerous ways (because why can't fashion be useful and lasting? I think it can!) So I say Maximize your Minimalism!

more press...

furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

magazines of current interest
Domino, Elle Decor (British), ARTnews, Art in America, Wallpaper

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.






Now doesn't this look yoguriffic!

Yolato's presentation is so enticing.
The creamy smooth undulating waves. The toppings. The flavors.
I can't contain myself any longer.
I must have birthday Yolato now!

Mint chocolate chip - my favorite.
I will probably combine it with hazelnut, my other favorite.
Or maybe I will keep my options open and explore what
other other favorites I discover when I get there.

I don't think I have to say much about Yolato to entice you, beyond the mouthwatering photos I took at the Park Avenue store. I could tell you that Yolato is a low-calorie healthy gelato that is offered in over 100 different flavors. I could tell you that there are four locations in New York, and one in New Jersey. I could tell you to bring $3.99 with you if you want a 'regular' or $4.99 if you want a 'grande.' But I don't need to tell you much more than the address. I have a feeling you will be paying Yolato a visit soon. I have a feeling I will too. Maybe tonight. They close at 9. The West Village location closes at 10.

Grand Central
125 Park Ave (42nd Street)
New York, NY 10017

The Yolato Store on Park Avenue is just below Grand Central.
This location opened in November 2007.

Dine in: choose from a stool at the counter
small lovely table in the window. Or take it To Go so you
can burn the calories as you eat. And then come back for more.
