The OCT Contemporary Art Terminal Xi’an (OCAT Xi’an) is the latest addition to the OCAT group of museums, now in five cities across China. The first was founded in Shenzhen in 2005 with a mission to support emerging and established contemporary Chinese artists, and produce exhibitions, lectures, and cultural programs on an international level.

Inspired by the likes of Tim Walker, the Dutch Masters, and Cecil Beaton, the arrangements and installations are in a lot of ways works of art. BRRCH has been featured in Vogue, Elle, and The New York Times Magazine and has done work for Byredo, Steven Alan, and Moda Operandi. Asch says her goal is to bring nature into the city, and I think she is doing just that. (via BRRCH Flowers - Best New York Florists - Brittany Asch - Style.com)

Fashion Week is wrapping up here in NYC, so it’s no surprise that the latest NYBG Floral Design alum to make the spotlight is so stylish. Brittany’s arrangements are gorgeous! Lush, delicate, elegant, and naturalistic—she’s certainly making the most of her NYBG training. ~LM

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’
