Get Seen » At the “RIPavone” Opening at Lot F Gallery

Lot F started the new year off with a bang as revelers gathered for the FiDi gallery's monthly second-Friday opening, this time with an exhibit celebrating the evolution of Brooklyn-based street artist Anthony Vasquez. The artist and founder of the Destroy Rebuild collective began his career under the moniker AVone, but is now killing off his former persona - hence the exhibit's title, "RIPavone" - and introducing viewers to his latest solo collection alongside previous work with Destroy Rebuild. Featuring several outsized silk-screened, spray-painted, and wheat-pasted works, the exhibit will be on display at Lot F until Jan 30. Expect Vasquez's classic gritty urban imagery, plus a few topless Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell cameos. For more information, visit


Amanda Rubin, owner of GetModa

Since she founded GetModa in Ashland last spring, Amanda has had one of the area's best-stocked closets at her fingertips. The high-end consignment boutique always has a solid selection of new and gently used items from designers like Burberry, Thierry Mugler, and Louis Vuitton.

She has tons of retail experience under her très-chic belt: before opening GetModa, Amanda worked at Ann Taylor, Ceri on Newbury, and J.Crew, to name a few, but knew she always wanted her own store.

In keeping with the night's street-art theme, she paired a graffiti-printed Romeo & Juliet dress and a perfectly tailored J.Crew blazer with sleek and chic accessories - a bracelet from J.Crew, a Tory Burch clutch, a Burberry watch, and Jessica Simpson boots.

Her secret to looking utterly relaxed and just a bit sun-kissed? Be spontaneous! Amanda had just taken a last-minute trip to Miami with friends; they booked a flight the day before New Year's Eve and rang in 2013 with a dance party at a friend's house.
