The Butterfly Effect

Red Valentino Skirt, Isabel Marant Skinny Jeans, Jennifer Zeuner Earrings & Necklace

     Visiting a magical butterfly garden on my trip to Santa Barbara reminded me how fond I am of the fluttering creatures.What I love even more than the insects themselves is their beautiful depiction in Damien Hirst's artwork. For years Hirst has made an array of butterfly paintings, from simple colored canvases to busy kaleidoscope pieces.
     In addition to art, butterflies are seen often in fashion, from printed fabrics to simple embroideries to dainty jewelry charms. They add girly, fantastical elements to any outfit, and are absolutely perfect for summer!

P.S. If you ever dine at Cecconi's in West Hollywood, be sure to peek into their private room… They have a stunning, heart-shaped butterfly painting by Hirst!

  8. Not fond of the real life creatures, but I am definitely a fan of their prints on graphics, stationery and clothing. I've never heard of Mr. Hirst, but thanks for introducing him! His art is beautiful. x
