Facebook Fashion Friday!!!


I’m noticing that posting every single Friday might exhaust all of my fashionable friends very soon…but at the rate of adding new fashionable friends, I think once a month, twelve select friends a year, that it would be better. So for October, I’ve clicked through hundreds of photos and decided on spotlighting my dear friend Whitney Shanks. She and I endured our adolescents together at the Academy of Colorado Ballet but she’s all grown up now, graduated from NYU, and successfully doing marketing for Openhouse Galley in NYC’s Soho. Openhouse Gallery is a nonprofit that provides a blank canvas for pop-up boutiques, artists, and retailers alike who need a venue for a limited time. They have showcased artwork for sexy cobbler, Brian Atwood, and held a fashion show for Built by Wendy, a talented New York designer who has bricks and mortar boutiques in NYC and Brooklyn, which I have visited. I was lucky enough to have dinner and drinks with Whitney back in February in the East Village. She is also an extremely talented visual artist, but to me she’ll always be the Lilac Fairy from Sleeping Beauty, her last ballet role, and a leading one at that. She’s a talented graphics artist that has freelanced for Nylon Magazinee on collage projects and her model looks even got her a page in Elle Magazine once, (the section where they stop everyday people on the streets of NYC and ask them how they’d wear a trend). Whitney’s photos were mostly of her in Halloween get ups, so I saw it fitting that she was my pic for October. To hear more about Openhouse Gallery click here.
