MoMa

So a lot of my outings lately have been to museums. Sorry (not sorry.) I’m now the proud member of three different museums in San Francisco and cannot urge you enough to do something similar near you! In the long run it becomes affordable if you visit often (like I do) and you typically always have a bonus ticket to invite a friend – and what good friends wouldn’t take you up on an offer to visit world class museums for free?!

So when I got the chance to visit the SF MOMA for the first time, I jumped at the opportunity to get a membership. Solely for the fact that it’s also too large to enjoy in one whole day. So now I get to come back as much as I want for a whole year! I feel lucky.

I’ve been trying to figure out where one can wear a bright yellow, wool, mini skirt…and if a museum isn’t perfect, I don’t know where else you’d wear the damn thing?! I still can’t believe I found it at the thrift store! It’s by Sonia Rykiel, who seems to have just passed away (RIP)

Stanley Kubrick exhibit at Contemporary Jewish Museum

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!

Remix: weird string dress

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!

Per usual with these remix posts, click on the image to see the original post!

I love that I word this dress to Tokyo, but I did feel a bit immodest wearing it! Too much showing in the front and back for how they dress.

So I totally forgot I’d worn the dress this way, with a chambray top over! I have to remember to do this again.

This may be the only occasion I’ve worn this dress during cold times. It was only early March in SF, still chilly.

I loved wearing this dress over this spandex leotard thingy. I wonder if I still have it…

This is the first time I remember wearing this dress! 2010! Gosh how time flies…

The Huntington

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.
