Finding Balance and Color in the Mojave Desert

It was freezing and incredibly windy when Taylor and I shot at Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains– a colorful art installation in the middle of the Mojave Desert, near Las Vegas, that features several columns of balanced rocks. I must give the wind credit though, as it did justice for my vintage marshmallow blouse and its’ billowy sleeves. I tied my black and white marbled clay tube necklace by Phoenix-based Sonia Gracia Handmade closer to my neck, so it can show-off next to the incredibly chic wingtip collar of the blouse. Overall, I wanted my black and white outfit to nicely contrast with the art installation, instead of wearing clashy colors. It was a fun day, especially when you have an excuse to go play in the desert.

Love my black ‘Arch’ earrings by Tucson-based Sigfus Designs? Lauren makes them in numerous colorways. Shop them HERE, and be sure to enter the code: HEATHERG at checkout.

I wish to thank Omar Lisandro for posting about this magnificent wall on his Instagram, because I never would’ve known about it. Not only is it happy and colorful, but it also has a deeper meaning to many. This past weekend was the annual Pride parade and festivities in Houston. ‘Pride’ is the term used in the LGBT community that is a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards their community and helps to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance (info via Wikipedia).

For this particular post, I wanted the wall to be the statement, so I chose to do an all-white ensemble. I had found a really cool vintage jumpsuit with small ribbon bows at a recent estate sale, and paired it with vintage white Ferragamo heels and vintage sunglasses with white frames. I then took a couple bits of thrifted white lace to add more texture to the jumpsuit as a belt, while the other lace piece doubled as a headscarf. For this occasion, less truly is more.

To all my friends and fans in the LGBT community – you are loved!
