A Friday with Mr. McQueen

Last friday we finally had the chance to make our way to The Met and check out the fabulous Savage Beauty exhibit.  It was crazy inside, but super fun! I think it helps people see that high fashion is not really clothing, but a form of art.  I snuck some pictures with my phone….for some unknown reason they don’t let you use your camera (even with no flash).  If you’re in the city before it closes I highly recommend it. If you can’t make it, check out the New Yorker’s slide show.  El viernes pasado finalmente tuvimos la oportunidad de ir al Museo Metropolitano y ver la exhibición fabulosa Savage Beauty.  Estaba de locos adentro, pero super divertido!  Creo que ayuda a que la gente vea la alta costura como arte y no solo como ropa.  No se como pero alcanzé a tomar unas fotillos a escondidas porque no te dejan tomar fotos….aunque no uses flash. Les recomiendo ir a visitar si andan por aca antes de que se termine.  Si no pueden, vean las fotos del New Yorker.

{Does anyone else thinks this looks like C3PO?? I think he was the inspiration. A alguien más le recuerda a C3PO?? Creo que el fue la inspiración.}

Wishing, hoping, thinking and praying

As of this week our future move has become more official/real: we’ve given our 30 day notice that we’re moving out. So, God willing, we’ll be gone in slightly less than a month. I’m nervous, happy, sad, scared and excited all at the same time. Basically I’m a complete emotional mess. Over the last month I’ve been daydreaming of what our new place will be like, and in hopes of finding ideas I’ve been hunting online for cool room pictures and home ideas….. and of course only manage to find spaces I can only dream of having. Every now and then I find some things and spaces that may be possible…..here’s some of my favorites today.

I love some of her accents like the side table and lamp and her bookshelves. She also has good ideas for small spaces, so I check her blog often.
