I met an Artist today










He was 85.
Friends with Pollock.
Had a studio in Greenwich village of the 60's.
He told me to never let fear run my life and that I had pretty eyes.

Um... I might have to track you down so I can steal that skirt.

Also, this post makes me happy. That artist sounds magical.

I love this skirt every which way you style it. Sounds like the artist knows what he is talking about.

That sounds awesome. Elderly artists always seem to have the best insight. Love this outfit - the tights look so cute peeking out from under your longer skirt.

Wow, I love this combination! That pinky/coral colour is amazing on you, and I love the print and length of the skirt!! The yellow belt is the perfect touch :D

Congratulations on meeting the 85 year old Pollock friend. I love your outfit!!!!! I usually can't handle so much color from head to toe but this works perfectly.
