:: Twin Peaks x Pendleton

I need to take a moment of silence here for Laura Palmer.  Twin Peaks was released on Netflix streaming recently and I decided to re-watch the series.  There are parts that I totally don't remember, or blocked out probably because I was a wee innocent one back then, full of the sweetness and wonder of the world still.  This time around I was noticing the CLOTHES.  Boatloads of Pendleton & Native American motifs galore, which *certain* people would kill for.  Also terrible things like stonewash spade-assed mom-jeans with tapered ankle which will never look good...I'm talking to you L train.

:: Savage Beauty // Alexander McQueen

I've been so busy that I haven't been able to post about this, but I finally made it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit.  After waiting in a 30 minute line on a Wednesday afternoon, I got in.  I've seen all of the pieces before from runway shows and other places online, but I was totally unprepared for how I would feel seeing them in person and up close.  At times I was speechless, other times on the verge of tears.  The accompanying descriptions are enlightening.  If you're in NY make it a priority to go before August 7th (when it ends).
