Tracee Tear Sheet Quote

I don’t use a stylist, mostly because I love playing dress-up. Going into my closet, creating new looks, and re-working old ones is a form of self-expression for me. I draw my fashion inspiration from a wide range of sources: magazine editorials, advertisements, even Pinterest. The image above comes from one of my many, ever-changing Tear Sheet boards. I fill them with whatever looks are currently inspiring my sartorial choices. Sometimes I’m inspired by the mood or the vibe, sometimes it’s the color or silhouette, and sometimes I just straight up love the look so much I steal it. With each Tear It & Wear It feature, I’ll show you my source image and how I reinterpreted the look with my own pieces. I hope you enjoy the feature, and try it yourself!

Not only is this obscenely delicious, but it’s also super simple to make!  I just toast two slices of gluten free UDI’s bread. On one piece I spread unsalted butter and top with prosciutto. On the other, I mix fresh avocado with lemon, crushed red pepper and salt. So quick, so tasty, so perfect. What’s your favorite snack time recipe? 

MA-Artist-is-Present

A pioneer of performance art, Marina Abramovic (born Yugoslavia, 1946) began using her own body as the subject, object, and medium of her work in the early 1970s. The self-described “Grandmother of Performance Art”, Abramovic is known to push her body to physical extremes in pursuit of her artistic goals.

For the exhibition Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present, The Museum of Modern Art’s first performance retrospective, Abramovic sat for seven hours, six days a week, for three months staring silently into the eyes of whomever took possession of the chair opposite her. Over the course of the exhibit Abramovic sat motionless for over 700 hours, and an estimated 750,000 museum-goers sat across from here gazing back into her eyes and becoming participants in the artwork themselves.

For this look, which I call the round brush blowout, I leave the root with natural texture to create some great volume and curl with both the small-medium and big-medium sized barrels of ceramic irons. I wore the resulting look to the Max Mara Crystal Lucy Awards in 2009.
