Alexander Wang at Art Basel Miami Beach

This weekend I went down to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach. It was an amazing show full of beautiful paintings, sculptures, champagne and even oysters. I wore a grey Alexander Wang dress (similar here), my grey Alexander Wang handbag (similar and on sale here) and vintage grey Lanvin metallic sneakers. It was cool down in Miami this weekend so I also wore my Veda leather jacket while outside.

If you love art and haven’t seen my artwork, click here. Prints are available for purchase if you fall in love with any of them. Maybe next year I will show with a gallery. Anyway, check out more great artwork from Art Basel below!

Milly Dress and Summer Rosé Wine on the Roof

Malinda Knowles Milly Dress

This summer has been all about soaking up the sun rays and ros wine. We still have some time before Fall to enjoy the weather.

I love when the art and fashion collide, especially on a dress. I recently wore this Milly dress to an AKA luncheon and everybody was in love. It’s perfect for that kind of affair, brunch, lunch, or business with a nice blazer. Check out more summer dresses here.

Pretty Blue Clouds

So, the weather has been a bit all over the place this Spring. But, hey, some days the sky is just gorgeous. I recently sketched some clouds and had some fun with oil pastels. I’ve been thinking about the sky, the universe, and clouds are just what came out. I always wonder about the universe and how big it is. There are so many stars and nature and the planet simply inspire me.

Enjoy!

A Graffiti Chanel Backpack for $3400

Chanel-Spring-2014-Backpack

Grunge. Graffiti. The 1990s. and Chanel? Really. Yes, Chanel has again jumped on the graffiti bandwagon for Spring 2014. It’s an interesting play on colors but for $3400? Label whores who do anything for a label might easily fork over the money for this but I would say if you really want a backpack like this, do it yourself. Make a fun art project out of this at home.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying the creativity, colors and grunginess of it all but I just can’t get with the pricepoint. After seeing those Chanel boots from the F/W 2013 show, I am just not enthralled with the graffiti backpack. Are we wearing backpacks these days anymore anyway?

Kim’s George Condo Hand-Painted Birkin Bag

kanye-west-kim-kardashian-george-condo-hermes-birkin-bag-christmas-gift-2013

So this week Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian a George Condo hand-painted Hermes Birkin bag for Christmas and Kim showed it off on a shopping trip. Condo did the artwork for my favorite Kanye album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. June Ambrose photoshopped a photo of her with a George Condo painted Birkin on Instagram to generate chatter. Needless to say the art world has officially infiltrated fashion. And, well, although I like the provocative artwork on Kanye’s album cover, I can’t say the same about the Birkins. It just doesn’t do it for me. What do you think?

Seeing Blue: Sequined Shorts and Artwork

malindaknowles5

I finally posted more of my artwork on the blog! Check it out now. More artwork will be coming and prints will be available so make sure to bookmark the ones that you really love!

This past weekend I took photos with my Songs of Freedom painting and got into a ‘blue’ spirit with sequined shorts from English Rose. I got them from Natre, an amazing, moderately priced boutique in Soho (thank you Natre)! Anyway, I just love the shorts. They’re great for a not-so-casual day or girl’s night out. They’re very comfortable too. I paired them with a black silk top and glitzy accessories and a chunky ring.

If you like the big, chunky, ring thing, check these out; 1)McQueen Skull Ring, $318    2) Cavalli Snake Knuckle Duster, $397   3) NastyGal Beetle Ring, $15  4) Mikey Snake Ring, $32
