29 Rooms of inspiration
September 13, 2017

Inspiration is something you can gain by using your five senses and causing you to apply or evaluate how you are or will leave a footprint on the world, your life or relationships. Creativity is visible ambition fueled by the inspiration of retelling HISTORY, bringing enlightenment to YOUR story or shedding knowledge on a relatable impactful topic!

I attended Refinery 29’s 2nd Annual 29 Rooms an interactive art experience. The remarkable event ran from September 8th until September 11th. My take on the experience of the many forms of art displayed was and still is days after in 3 words are: memorable, impactful and MOTIVATING! Why? Well, if you attended you would feel the same sentiments and then some if you did not attend one of two things. 29 rooms will be transporting their talents to L.A. December 7-10 visit http://www.refinery29.com/29rooms/ for more information.

The 29 rooms are curated to allow your inner child to explore, play and live in the moment. The theme of this year was “Turn It Into Art” which encompassed everything from sports, old school traditional spins, music, women’s rights and catharic experiences sprinkled with magic. Madame Gandhi and Jen Mussari created a women empowerment themed room that inspired you to put on inspiring boxing gloves painted with a strong message of ‘The Future is Female.’ As I took out some of my aggression on the boxing bags creating a symphony of sounds. I realized as a female we are making strides however, we still have a ways to go.

Jake Gyllenhaal created a room that allowed you to escape from yourself with deep thought. Stepping away from advanced technology (aside from posting; of course) and really taking it back to the basics. When asked to ‘put on paper whatever is weighing you down, then shred it and feel the power of letting go.’ It did not stop there you actually had the opportunity to shred it MANUALLY. How cool is that!

Juicy Couture added a winter wonderland landscape themed feel in the summer, summertime introducing the Glacé Getaway room. The room had an arctic artsy feel decorated with fake snow as you became a figure within a snowglobe. The Viva La Juicy Glacé fragance was light and floral. I appreciated the sample sized tube as I entered you gained a new customer Juicy; nice touch. 

Cadillac stood out to me not only because it allowed me to have a photoshoot with the open space lol let’s just say I “dared greatly” as the hashtag suggested. Cadillac saw an untapped opening as an established car brand and collaborated with Jason Wu to target an audience in an innovative way. It was a canvas that you added your style to as the display deconstructed the car and, dared you to utilize what existed and what you could not reach or touch.

Overall, it was a great experience that is Chanel Speedy Approved if you have the opportunity to travel for a day trip or you are a local do yourself a favor check it out. It is a super fun way to spend a day or days navigating through rooms of inspiration, motivation and parallel emotions you may have or expressed prior in multiple art forms. Special thanks to Nasdaq for featuring me on their Times Square tower as I was feeling empowered, ambitious and confident and turned it into art incorporating fashion.

This Sophie Harper multi layered chain is my favorite thus far. “It looks light but it’s heavy though” it really isn’t heavy I just wanted to quote Drake. This is an overall fun piece to pair with.
