I'm Dasha and this is my visual hoarding. I live in Oakland where I work for a contemporary art gallery, non-profit arts organizations and am an independent curator. These are a few of my favorite things - art, design, cars, baseball, visual marketing, dirty jokes, whisk(e)y, cardigans, and dapper men.
Happy hunting, D
Fact: I love jamon iberico, uncontrollably and unconditionally. Spanish cuisine is most definitely lacking in many ways, but sweet jesus do they know how to do cured ham and jamon iberico is their masterpiece. What makes jamon iberico so insanely delicious you say? There is a magical land in the south of Spain where there are majestic black Iberian pigs that feast on nothing but acorns all their life, thus creating the beauty that is jamon iberico. Iberico is ridiculously expensive in the the states and as such, difficult to find. Lo and behold Contigo has an iberico plate. So naturally we went over to Noe Valley last night for dinner and it was unbelievably good. They have put an impeccable California spin on Spanish cuisine. Contigo is most definitely among my top favorite restaurants now. Oh and the churros, oh my stars the churros. The only thing keeping Contigo from being truly Spanish is the lack of indoor smoking.
Long story short, I’m in love with jamon iberico and Contigo.
Gave a morning gallery tour. I want to live in Jim Campbell’s work. (No but really.) Wearing my hunt blazer everyday makes me feel like a little kid that won’t let go of their blankie/favorite boots/etc, but in all seriousness, this jacket is perfect. Perfect I tell you! One of my best friends in the entire world is moving into my guest room this evening. (Insert happy dance.) Found a new TV obsession.
