Get to Poppin’!! Art Pop Street Gallery X Neiman Marcus


I first learned about the amazing designs of Art Pop last summer during The Charlotte Shout Festival

I was mesmerized by art being up cycled and transformed into fashion.

Neiman Marcus recently hosted an Art Pop exhibit where we were treated to champagne and lite bites, as well as a fashion exhibit, an artist working on his painting and information about their non profit.

Their store windows welcome shoppers into the store where a portion of the weeks sales went directly to Art Pop.

ArtPop Street Gallery is an arts nonprofit organization focused on showcasing local artists, fostering creative success, and making art accessible to all.

It’s hard to believe that all of these beautiful pieces were once billboards!

Shen Yun


After many years of wanting to go, I finally got to see the performance, Shen Yun.

It is presented by the Falun Gong of New York which is banned in Communist China.

Imagine if you will, a book full of short stories, played our before your eyes on stage.

Where history meets fantasy.

Equal parts of inspiration from Russian ballet, Irish River dance, Cirque du Soleil and Imax Theater.

Before each story, two narrators came out and explained what we would see, in both English and Chinese.

Shen Yun’s artists tell of a time when divine beings walked upon the earth, leaving behind a culture that inspired generations.

We weren’t allowed to take photos or video so I grabbed a couple of pictures from online. However, pictures just cannot do it justice.

Some stories were sad, some were funny, and all were awe inspiring.

With little to no props, we were sucked into a fantasy world with their Innovative 3D projection.

A seamless interaction between performers on stage and the scene behind them wowed the audience.

My favorite scenes involved the ‘Water Sleeve’ outfits. The dancers sleeves seemed to take flight with each movement.

I also was blown away by the ‘water in the balance dance’

Dancers balanced large porcelain water vases on their heads while dancing.

Each year the production changes so you can see something new every year.

They also have a shop where you can support the productions with you purchase of items ranching from T-shirt’s and bookmarks to purses and scarves.

You can also shop Online

I highly recommend you check it out if you get the chance!

Breakfast At Tiffany’s X Nike


Tiffany And Co. Has A Nike Air Force 1 Collaboration Coming on March 7, 2023.

The Nike Air Force 1 isn’t going away anytime soon after the silhouette celebrated its 40th Anniversary last year.

There are more releases on the way, including this pair designed in collaboration with jewelry maker Tiffany & Co.

Luxury jewelry brand Tiffany & Co. recently joined forces with sneaker expert Nike for their fresh take on the timeless Nike Air Force 1 silhouette.

Not long ago, some early images of the sneakers surfaced on the internet.

Extremely limited pairs of the Tiffany & Co. x Nike Air Force 1 Low “1837” are expected to be made available on this coming Tuesday March 7th.

They retail for $400 and will be made available through Tiffany & Co., Nike, and a few other retail outlets.

The construction of this AF-1 seems to stay true to the original, with black nubuck uppers and tumbled leather at the Swoosh.

The real charm lies within the chrome appliques at the heel and the etched tongue labels.

The shoelaces are not your classic sport laces, but rather the thick roped kind typically found on Tiffany And Co. pouch cords and bag handles. A variety of shoelaces will come attached, with a bright golden yellow being at least one of the options.

I can definitely picture Holly Golightly wearing a pair of these with a little black dress and pearls. Just because she can DO IT.
