This feathered Diane Von Furstenberg dress is definitely a statement piece. I like the challenge of wearing something multiple times a year in different ways. Since the top of this dress is more of a summer weight, I layered it under a slim fitting strapless dress by Max Studio. It has been a bit of a cool start to spring here in Boston but layering lighter weight pieces is a perfect way to dress appropriately for cooler temps while still allowing me to use my favorite warmer weather pieces. In the summer, I’ll pair this feathered dress with strappy sandals and a straw boater.

Boston artist Cedric Douglas’ striking mural, titled “A World of Innocent Discovery,” can be found on the side of the Behrakis Health Sciences Center at Northeastern University. The mural is part of the school’s public art initiative. Douglas’ mission is to bring community together through street art. The spray-painted artwork depicts a child holding a spray can out of which explodes wonder and wildlife in the form of shocking colors, dinosaurs, and prehistoric birds.

My ring and necklace are vintage. While it is fun to wear something from a current collection, there is nothing like scouring tiny shops and old halls for pieces. The thrill of the hunt and the idea of wearing something with a history lend a little excitement.

Douglas started an organization, The Up Truck, with the goal of engaging as many locals as possible in the creation of public art. Up Truck project manager and creative collaborator Julia Roth said, “Galleries are great, but it’s different when you have the ability to stumble across a piece of art in your community” (thedailyfreepress.com). I could not agree more.
