Behold a cute summer goodie — the whistle necklace made by one of our guest bloggers, Anna Sheffield of Bing Bang. We stole this photo from her Instagram today with a note that reads: ”Good for summer and cat calling boys at the beach”. We thought we’d share it with our readers since there’s only a few left.
The necklace costs $128 but is now on sale for $96. Get ‘em while their hot at BingBangnyc.com. You can also follow “a day in the life” of Anna on her Instagram at bingbangnyc.
Tuesday night was Julia Chiang’s art opening presenting new works entitled Security is Mostly a Superstition. Julia is one of our beloved guest bloggers for the Standard Culture site. The opening, held at the Half Gallery, contained a room size installation of white chains, handcrafted of ceramic links. Julia’s sculpture work traditionally seems a simple item at first, but a pause usually begets more thoughts, delving into deeper themes that tickle the mind. In this case, the chains evoke a spirit “marked by connectivity and confinement”.

The opening and dinner were good vibes all around. It was a gathering of downtown creatives including KAWS, Peter Sutherland, Eric Elms, Anna Sheffield, Jose Parla, Bill McMullen, Todd James, and Todd Jordan among others — all of whom gathered to witness and celebrate Julia’s meteoric rise in the art scene.
We revealed the new STND X OHWOW Shop at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach during Art Basel, but now we have these swanky new pics from Floto Warner to really show off the space. “Friends with benefits takes on a whole new meaning” says W Mag of the the shop, and they’re right. The space was designed by Rafael de Cardenas, of Architecture at Large and features all kinds of quirky, pretty, exciting products from our community of artists, designers, and plain ol’ friends. Find Julia Chiang’s apples, jewelry by Anna Sheffield, books by KAWS, Andrew Kuo, and much more.
The holiday season isn’t always our favorite time of the year. We feel that the true meaning of it all has been lost in the mad rush to buy buy buy all the chicest gifts you can find. And for that reason only, we tend to remember that we actually DO love this time of year! So, to make your shopping efforts just a little bit easier this year, I’ve compiled a little gift guide for you courtesy of the shops at The Standard, Downtown LA and The Standard, New York!
