Woodstock 1969 photo credit

With rain in the forecast during our family weekend in Livingston Manor, I was on the hunt for indoor amusements to entertain both the toddler and the 'other half.' On a whim, we visited the Museum at Bethel Woods, the site of the Woodstock music festival in August 1969. Stepping into the entryway, The Story of Woodstock and the '60s is as magical and noteworthy as the festival itself. Keep reading for a look inside...

Bulgari Serpenti Anniversary Exhibit: 75 Years of Infinite Tales NYC Pop Up

An infinity room with AI and Machine generated art installation, by Turkish artist Refik Anadol, is an exhibit highlight

Curiosity enticed my friend and I to join the short-ish line at Bulgari's 70 Gansevoort Street pop up, while our kids napped. We stepped into Bulgari's 75 Years of Infinite Tales exhibit, during its final weekend in NYC. Inside, a showcase of the brand's heritage styles from the forties to the present are intermingled with unique pieces commemorating this special celebration. At the center of the space, the doors open into a dynamic infinity room with bold splashes of color created by Turkish artist Refik Anadol. Keep reading to have a look inside.

Installation view of Generation Paper: A Fashion Phenom of the 1960s at Museum of Arts and Design (@MADMuseum)

With a stroke of luck (and a stock of Dura-Weave or Reemay), mass marketing created a fleeting fashion fad of the 1960s. Perhaps moderately eclipsed by the socio-political and cultural events of the time (Space Race, counter culture, civil rights, politics), disposable dresses-- in prints, plaids and plain--are the highlight of the MAD Museum's latest fashion exhibit, Generation Paper: A Fashion Phenom of the 1960s. Eighty rare garments and accessories are showcased alongside insightful commentary in a full-floor exhibit.

PhoebeNewYork @West Chelsea Contemporary Gallery

I took this photo of Phoebe NYC when I first moved to NYC, and it remains the screen saver on my phone--to this day!

"Phoebe" was one of my first acquaintances, when I arrived in NYC. She was here, there, everywhere...and equal parts inspirational and ironic. Phoebe was stylish. She was sweet, sassy and most of all--relatable. Spotting Pheobe on the streets of NYC was often a pick-me-up and always an insta-worthy moment. As Libby Schoettle's cutout gal gained popularity over the last decade, PhoebeNewYork has appeared in ads, magazines, collabs--and most recently a solo show at West Chelsea Contemporary.

Installation view of Soundsuits on Tower Level 5: What It Shall Be

Being both black and queer inspires 'Forothermore,' Nick Cave's current exhibit at the Guggenheim. The nomenclature tributes the marginalized--"an ode to those who, whether due to racism, homophobia, or other forms of bigotry, live their lives as the 'other,' and a celebration of the way art, music, fashion and performance can help us envision a more just future," declares the artist. Subtly tucked within the three tower galleries on Floors 2,4 and 5, the 30-year retrospective of Nick Cave's creative practice are aptly themed 'What It Was,' 'What It Is,' and 'What it Shall Be.'

Sabyasachi-- Stunning Style, Now Stateside

Inside the Sabyasachi store in the West Village
