They irony behind this outfit post and the title of the post is that not much contemplation went into the outfit at all. I was more distracted and overly-excited to go to the museum that I just wanted to look presentable, comfortable and functional. So, I literally threw on a sweater dress, some leggings, utility vest and a pair of chucks on a gloomy morning. On top of that, my options were pretty limited since it was storming and pouring, and I didn’t feel like wobbling around in rain boots. - Oh, and the Belvedere Castle behind me!
Now back to the excitement of my little trip to the Met. I’m there pretty much on a weekly basis, but I finally got to see the Costume Institute’s presentation of Schiaparelli & Prada. I know the Met Gala’s photographs have been all over the internet on who what who, but I’m more interested on the actual exhibit it’s centered on than the party. And let’s say, the exhibit was very beautifully executed. The dialog between the two designers of different eras was very engaging and thought provoking. I’ll most likely go back several more times just to see the wall of shoes and hats again!
