Opticks Everywhere

Arnsdorf

Hailing from Austrailia, but based in New York City, designer Jade Sarita Arnott’s newest collection “Opticks” is based loosely on her fascination by Newton’s book of the same name. She uses the phrase “Reflections, refractions, inflections and colours of light” to summarize her collection of juxtaposed fabrics of silk and heavy canvas with light and prism crystal designs. I’m both enamored and fascinated by the mirror like designs on her architectural dresses and skirts, and how she pairs them with soft tops in light refracting colours, such as the one above. That skirt is definitely my favorite from the collection, although the dresses are pretty impressive as well. The collection reminds of the prisms of light that shot out of Fever Ray’s concert. I love Fever Ray, her concert‘s are beautiful madness.

P.S. This is completely off topic, but please, someone, anyone, make Kim Kardashian go away.

Brooklyn Love: Hello Weekend Football Edition

hellobrooklyn

The Jets may have lost, and the Giants didn’t even come close, but you can still have a fun Sunday watching Football amongst other Brooklynites, stuffing their faces with wings (or fake wings for us non-meat eaters) and drinking copious amounts of beer under the guise of being a “sports fan”.

Dram Shop
339 9th St

With multiple flat screen tv’s playing the game at different angles, a large beer selection and what is considered at least one of the best burgers in Park Slope, Dram Shop is definitely the place to watch the game. A Park Slope Sports Bar with tons of boardgames, a pool table, and ample seating, come early and score a coveted booth with direct view of the game and waitress service.

4th Down
170 N. 4th Street

A new Sports Bar in Williamsburg, 4th Down touts “drink specials & Kebabs” for SuperBowl Sunday. Unfortunately, their website and facebook fan page don’t tell us much about the viewing situation, but the one review on yelp, a solid 4 star, says it isn’t some “hipster version of a sports bar” however, with the PBR specials for Sunday night, I might have to disagree.

The Rock Shop
249 4th Ave

An “indie rock sports bar” smack dab in the middle of Park Slope (and kind of Gowanus), The Rock Shop  is hosting a free SuperBowl Party starting at 5:00 pm. With a kitchen serving wings, burgers and fries, and with 10 flat screen tv’s, this might be one of your best bets for actually seeing the game.

Brooklyn Bottle Bowl
213 North 8th Street

Brooklyn Winery and Brooklyn Brewery have teamed up to bring you the Superbowl in style. Grab 6 to 12 of your closest friends, and click here to score a private table at Brooklyn Winery for direct viewing of the game on one of their two giant screens. Party packages include Brooklyn Winery Wine, Brooklyn Brewery Beer, and private buffets of game day snacks including subs, chips, dips and more. There will also be prizes and a photobooth on hand to preserve football memories for years to come.

See you next week for our regularly scheduled weekend guide.

Mermaid Fishtails

Google Chrome-1.jpg

When I look at these photos from the Russh Magazine, I get a little jealous. After a brazilian blowout and keratin treatment, my hair basically does one thing, and that thing is fall flat and straight. I could probably replicate the look above, even with my straight hair, but I suck at doing anything to my hair other than washing it, brushing it, and leaving the house. Time for youtube tutorials?

Google Chrome-2

Yeah, probably not. Love complicated hair, but I’m just not the type to put so much effort into my hair. I’ll just keep staring at these photos and longing for a professional stylist to fall me around and make my hair into pretty works of art.
