Fly and Flower Show

Tuesday night I got to go to an amazing event that showcased the amazing art of my good friend Claire Kendall in collaboration with the incredible clothing of the Fly Modern Apparel Boutique. Claire has been creating this ingenious line of paintings in which she takes fashion photos from blogs, and instagram and other avenues and paints the photos and replaces the model's head with a flower. Yes, it's a slightly odd concept when you hear it for the first time, but the final result is inspired and ethereal. I've been obsessed with this collection of paintings since she first opened them at the end of September. I actually found out tonight that I was her very first purchaser on this collection! And I personally think that one of this distinctive pieces is a must-have for every fashionista and art lover: and you can't beat supporting a local artist.

Tonight's event was especially special because not only did Claire paint the models from Fly, but she also had a hand in composing the photo shoot that inspired the paintings. She's just all around artistically talented and the event came together beautifully! I'm proud to call her my friend and I want to share her genius with everyone.

And let's talk about Fly Modern Apparel. It's located on a side street of downtown Summerville, South Carolina. Living on the opposite side of town, I seldom get to Summerville, though I occasionally hear great things about it. But it's worth the drive just to shop this fabulous boutique: this coming from the girl who had officially given up on boutiques. The clothes were sassy, creative and original and made with great quality fabrics, and the prices were very reasonable. I will be keeping my eye on this great little secret! I ended up getting an incredible top and a beautiful holiday dress tonight at the event. I can't wait to show them to you!
