If you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE museums. Especially when they have exhibits with fashion elements. I didn’t know what to expect from seeing the Stanley Kubrick exhibit that’s been traveling, now visiting San Francisco at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. I thought it would of course be very film-centric, which it was – I didn’t expect to see the costumes there! I was blown away by their beauty, that I had to go back and take photos! I think film buffs, costume/fashion design lovers, and anyone will love this show!
After years of touting that I’d “borrowed” this dress, my sister finally caught on that it belonged to her! I’m lucky, cause she let me keep it anyway. I wouldn’t be able to tell you where she got it, what’s it’s called – that’s why I call it the string dress! It’s a shame I really only get to wear it when it’s extra hot!

I recently was able to visit the Huntington Museum and Gardens for the first time in my life. I was blown away by the beauty of its grounds and exhibitions. As a dedicated museum lover, it made me wish it was the kind of place I was closer to. Part garden, part museum – it’s really the best of both my favorite worlds!
The other part of me was a “what was I thinking” moment when I dragged my sister and her baby out there in 100 degree heat! I think living in San Francisco so long, gave me amnesia of how hot the rest of the world gets. We were melting! I save all the strappy things I don’t wear in SF for my trips out of town, like this one. I got the chance to wear one of my old favorites! This weird tangly top dress I borrowed (but never gave back) from my other sister.

I have had a lot of fun dressing up and down this little black skirt! It’s like I’m finally discovering the easiest thing to wear (ala florals in Spring moment from Devil Wears Prada.) It’s got a nice stretch to it and hugs my body. I do wish now that the waist was a little more fitted. I’m sort of tempted to sew in the waist a few inches, but them I’m worried I won’t be able to get the damn thing on!
