Third Friday

One of my favorite things about Phoenix is the art community that surrounds it. There are so many talented people in Phoenix, and twice a month the town likes to show them off. So this past Friday Scott and I went down to Phoenix to celebrate Third Friday. It was a pretty warm night, so I decided it would be best to wear something flowy, and comfortable.

I also wanted to show off one of the sweetest designers I know, Moorea Seal, so I sported a pair of her arrow earrings during the night. They're so tiny, and dainty. I just love them!

For a little extra coverage with my skinny strapped dress, I wore this pretty lace vest Scott bought me over the summer. I love how it adds an extra element to the outfit, without making it bulky or hot.

I might have worn my favorite Blowfish Butter wedges. These wedges are very comfortable, and easy to walk in, which was great because we did quite a bit of walking during the night (around Grave Avenue, down and up all around Roosevelt ).

While we were in downtown I took every opportunity to take cute photos. I kind of love the spray painted fence above, and it was one of the first things I spotted after we got out of the car and headed toward the galleries.

Among our stops during the night was Dave Quam's (aka Luster Kaboom) show at The Trunk Space. It was so neat to see his art in such a large scale, and Scott and I had such a nice talking with for a little bit. He's really such a talented artist, and he's been doing so many great things around Phoenix lately! Go Dave!

Before leaving Grand Ave. we stopped in at Bragg's Pie Factory. It has always been one of my favorite galleries, maybe for the fact that the space is so huge (which is pretty unsual for art galleries in Phoenix), or that it was once a pie factory! I'm pretty sure they need to have a pie social in there one day!

Scott and I ended the night with shaved iced from Mojo Bowl. This was our first time having a mojo bowl, and I have to say, it was SO delicious. We had froyo on the bottom, raspberry shaved iced, and yummy cream on top. It was the perfect treat for a night warm night!

  6. Chelsea, I am completely in love with this outfit, and YOU wear it so beautifully. I'm also incredibly jealous, a fairly constant emotion when I read about your life in Pheonix, of the art there. It just seems like such a lovely place. Reminds me that I need to get out of my desert, soon!
