At home with monsters: Guillermo Del Toro at the LACMA

In the midst of all the other billion museum posts, I run off to LA for a long weekend and visit yet another museum! I had to visit this Guillermo Del Toro exhibit, which proved to be the deliciously dark exhibit it promises! If you happen to find youself in the LA area, I would highly recommend visiting before it’s gone. GdT is an artist with a fantastic eye for┬áthe realm of film – so the exhibit was a beautiful blend of pieces from his movies, but also art that inspired it.

It was one of the more perfectly curated exhibits I had ever seen in my life! The pictures I took and share here, do the whole thing no justice – as I mostly only photographed the clothing and a few art pieces. But there was so much to see by so ┬ámany different artists! All things bugs, steampunk, goth, horror, spooky, macabre, ghouls, torture, fear, nightmares, morbid, but with a twist of humor thrown in.

You guys, I’m astonishingly surprised and proud of myself in a way I may have never been before. I never imagined that my ideas about taking pictures of homes would bloom to what it is now. Not only have I had a blast taking photos of all these beautiful homes – getting outside to find them is another amazing challenge! Also, the fact that I get to have these made on Made in USA merchandise feels very good!

Here are just a few of the things you can get, I’m still working on more designs!

Remix: Vince Nina flats

I simply love these Vince shoes! They have been my literal go-to shoe for the last few years because you just slip them right on and run out the door! The grey color has also proved itself to be beautifully versatile and necessary for my wardrobe.

I had become a bit obsessed with the weirdest thing a few months ago. I got it into my head that I NEEDED to find a vintage Simpsons sweatshirt. Don’t ask me why, I can’t even remember why. And the problem was that it was hard to find. Mostly because I’m neurotic about buying things online you cannot try on (and return easily.) Half the time, the sweatshirts were too big – mostly because they were for men. Or they were really expensive – because they were rare and funny. Sometimes they were just too worn or weird (aka dingy) looking – not what I was going for…I ended up jumping for something I thought was cute. It did end up a tad bit too small for me (okay, really small.) It fits more like a top than a sweater, but with our mild San Francisco summers, it works.

It’s hard to read what Bart is saying, but it’s the famous “Jingle bells, Batman smells…” line! I’m actually shocked to realize I haven’t shown this skirt more here on the blog – I practically lived in it last year!
