What is the difference between street art and vandalism? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, vandalism is “willful or malicious destruction or defacement of public or private property”, but isn’t street art simply art created in a public space? Could these two terms become interchangeable? When does street art turn into vandalism?
These questions came to my mind when I found this image spray-painted above a door outside of Humanities. It is not overly complicated and seems like it could have been done in a matter of seconds. I wonder if it was meant to be artistic or if it was drawn for another reason. What do you think? Where is the line drawn between street art and vandalism?
I know I already posted about how great edgy and girly elements combined in one look are, but I found another example I just had to share! This look combines the edge of black combat boots with very feminine floral print pants and a great semi see-through knit sweater (love the maroon shade) with a classic white bandeau showing underneath. The delicate pendant necklace adds another layer of charm to this outfit with its vintage, girly feel. I’ve been seeing a lot of the bandeau under a semi-sheer shirt look lately and my personal opinion is if it’s done tastefully (like in this case) it can be a great flirty look that is still classy and fashionable. Any thoughts? I’ve also been seeing a ton of floral print pants this season as well and am a huge fan. With spring FINALLY here they seem to fit the season!
As spring approaches here in Madison I’ve been noticing more and more people breaking out their Birkenstock sandals. These sandals cover the streets of Madison once the weather is nice, and their appeal has intrigued me for some time now. I am the proud owner of a pair myself, and am obsessed with how comfortable and functional they are. However, the question here is of style: can Birkies be fashionable or are they just a functional but boring eye sore? Tell me what you think and send us a stylish picture of you and your Birkies- I’ll post the most fashionable pic next week!
