Met Moment

Photos by Ting Chen. 

As you can probably tell, I finally have my computer back up and running! It needed some fixing up at the Apple Store, but we are back to normal now. It felt kind of weird to take such a long break from the blog, but it was actually kind of nice to have a break too and just enjoy some down time. However, I am excited to be back sharing some new looks with you now! 

Last weekend I had a lovely brunch on the Upper East Side with some friends and then we walked over to the Met to see the Manus X Machina exhibit at the Costume Institute. As you may know, this exhibit is all about technology in fashion and the dynamic between hand made versus machine made. Many of the displays featured work done with 3D printing, or machine made flowers painstakingly hand stitched onto a garment. There were even a few remote-controlled pieces which shifted and moved with mechanical elements. I will share a post next week with some of my favorite pieces from the exhibit, so look out for that if you're interested! 

I wore this bright floral Alice and Olivia dress that I got at a warehouse sale last spring. It was a super hot day so a loose fitting dress was required and the back cutout on this one was a perfect detail for keeping cool. A simple bag and gold sandals complete the look for a casual but fun day with my girls!

Dress: Alice and Olivia (options: 1/2) . Bag: H&M (similar). Shoes: Splendid. Earrings:
Gorjana (smaller version). Lipstick: MAC Flamingo.

And of course we finished the day off with cupcakes :)
