Just In: 12 Shoe Picks From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

As promised I’ve sifted through every shoe in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale . Here are my 12 picks, including summer slip-ons, rain boots, winter must-haves, heels, sandals, and running shoes from Tory Burch, Rag & Bone, Hunter, Toms and other designers.

By the way, did you know that Toms makes real shoes now? I tried a few pairs on when I was on Martha’s Vineyard two weeks ago and they were so comfortable I bought a pair of block heel peep toe mules.  I love them. They look especially great with white jeans.

ARTmonday: Nude Drawings at PAAM

The other night I went to a reading by Taylor Larsen from her book Stranger, Father, Beloved at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM).  I haven’t read the book yet, but from what I’ve heard, Larsen has created complex and compelling characters.

One of the advantages of attending evening programs is the chance to wander through an empty gallery or two. In addition to David Hilliard’s large format photos, I saw “Drawings from the Permanent Collection,” on view through August 28, 2016.

Curated by Christine McCarthy, the Executive Director of the Museum, the show pulls from PAAM’s 3,000 plus works by over 750 twentieth century and contemporary artists who have worked in Provincetown and on Cape Cod. Most of them are nude drawings.

We know how I love nude artworks. The fluid lines of the female form are so alluring. So much of the woman’s essence is captured from the seemingly simple swoosh of a line defining her back, her shoulder, the swell of her breast, the roundness of her bottom Or, in the case of de Groot’s pieces, with its sharper lines, her modern strength.

Here are six nude drawings from the permanent collection of PAAM. If you’re in Ptown be sure to stop in.
