Online Shopping – Summer Sales!

Picks of the summer sales via youmademelikeyou.com

I’m a great sale shopper.  I’m also great at outlets and vintage shopping.  I love this time of year when everything is on sale but there are still a good couple of months to wear whatever awesome things you find.  I usually wait until final markdowns to go to town with my credit card online (unless, of course, I’m sure that my size will sell out!).  Here are some things I would love to get my hands on from sales going on right now (click the images!)

Art Fairs in May – NADA (New Art Dealer’s Alliance)

Art Fairs in May - NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance) via youmademelikeyou.com

Yes, I suppose I’m a little behind on the art fair posts but it’s still May ( oh…wait…) and hey,  it’s always a good time to look at art! (ha!)  Today,  I have images of some eye-catchers from NADA, the fair from the New Art Dealer’s Alliance. This is always a fun fair to go to, the atmosphere is great, I have friends to visit and I always discover something new (not going to lie, the taco truck isn’t bad either).

Art Fairs in May – Frieze New York

Frieze Art Fair New York via youmademelikeyou.com

I think by now you may have noticed my lack of posts lately – I’ve been away in California but I’m back in NY. SO – let’s look at some art! I ended up going out to more art fairs than I had planned, I wasn’t in the mood like I usually am this time around but had a great time in the end.  I’ll start with Frieze Art Fair which takes place on Randall’s island here in NY… this is the third year that it’s happening and the second year I’ve gone.  I love this fair, but it’s crazy expensive and hard to get to – I was close to bailing because I didn’t want to pay the $43 admission + $20 ferry ride. It worked out in the end though thanks to my art fair fairy – see below for some eye catchers from this London fair’s New York edition.

Urs Fischer Pop-Up in (former) Chase Bank

Urs Fischer Pop-Up at (former) Chase Bank via youmademelikeyou.com

I read about this pop-up show of Urs Fischer’s work put on by Gagosian Gallery but had honestly, forgotten about it (oopsies!).  I finally went in yesterday with a friend on our way to some LES galleries and I’m really glad we did.  Basically, there are two shows of Fischer’s work running side by side, one is at the new uptown, Park Avenue location of Gagosian Gallery and the other is this awesome pop-up in the lower east side.

First Thursdays Cape Town

First Thursdays Cape Town via www.youmademelikeyou.com

Thanks to my awesome friends in Cape Town, I was able to take part in this super cool event in the central city.  Once a month, the galleries and shops stay open until late with music and street vendors and of course, glorious South African wine. The galleries were interesting and fun to see but I was mostly surprised by the amazing design shops.  No joke, if I had the space it actually would have been worth shipping a ton of stuff back to NY because I wanted EVERYTHING.  Maybe someday… when I grow up and have a real place (and somewhere to keep all the cases of Pinotage that I would also ship).
