Of course there's nothing worse than having one of these books around when a dinner party guest asks you about your favorite piece of art in the book. Yeah, pretty awkward. With Grapefruit: A Book of Instructions and Drawings by Yoko Ono ($12) (well, provided you at least look at a few pages, ideally. It's short! Look at all of the pages already!) you'll own a piece of art in a cool- looking book. So when you say your favorites are "Snow Piece" and "Cloud Piece" you'll sound super artsy and hip and it will have them asking questions about the art of Yoko Ono (hint, say you saw one of her exhibitions at the Seattle Art Museum years ago, then talk about the weather), and no one will be the wiser!
We're good, but we can only be so many places at once. Short of cloning ourselves, what can we do to make sure we're up on the latest trends? Enlist our gal-on-the street Outblush Operatives to send us guest posts on what's hot, that's what.
