Fashion Meets Art – Mugler Couturissme Exhibition at Musèe des Beaux-Arts Montrèal

Hello, hello!

Today I have something a little different to share with you – a selection of photos from my visit to the Thierry Mugler Coutuissme exhibition at the Musèe des Beaux-Arts Montrèal (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts). If you follow me on Instagram, you might recognize these photos from my Stories. [info in italics taken from the MBAM website]

Thierry Mugler Couturissme

Premiering in Montreal, Thierry Mugler: Couturissime brings together more than 150 garments made between 1977 and 2014, most of which are being shown for the first time, as well as a wealth of unpublished archival documents and sketches. One hundred or so photographs by such world-renowned fashion photographers as Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, Pierre et Gilles, David LaChapelle, Paolo Roversi, Herb Ritts, Dominique Issermann, Guy Bourdin and Richard Avedon, to name a few, round out the show. Each of the immersive galleries has been designed in collaboration with talented artist-designers and set designers, including Michel Lemieux, Philipp Fürhofer and Rodeo FX.

 

If you get a chance to go see this exhibition in person, you should! I’m probably going to go back for a second visit – so many beautiful details to look at!

Thanks for reading,

Mini Clothing Haul

Hello, hello!

Today I have something a little different – a peek at the clothes that I bought last weekend. I went shopping with the goal of purchasing one or two blouses that would work with what I already had in my closet. I haven’t bought myself any clothes in so long! Here’s what I got (all at 20% off):

1. Printed jersey t-shirt

2. Flowy printed blouse (Anna Glover X H+M Collab) – I love this type of blouse with jeans, skirts or shorts. I wore this blouse on Wednesday to a client meeting with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans.

3. Floral printed collar shirt – it is weird, I don’t usually go for prints that often, but this season I saw SO MANY prints that I really liked. Again, I can see wearing this one with several jeans, skirts or even shorts in my wardrobe. This photo does not do the print justice at all.

4. Printed shirt dress (Anna Glover X H+M Collab) – This not something that I would normally try on, let alone buy, but I really liked the print and decided to try it on and LOVED it! I can picture wearing this with a cute pair of flats or sandals (or more likely flip flops).Mini Haul (H+M) April 2018

Bonus – a little birthday gift to me from me:

Every year, around my birthday, Softmoc has a Friends and Family sale (usually 25% discount I think), so I bought myself a new pair of Vans slip-on sneakers to replace my old pair. I think I had my last pair for three years and they were so worn out!

So there you have it,  my mini clothing haul. Hope you enjoyed something a little different than my usual reviews.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Betsey Johnson Love

After a recent post by Rosie from A Red Lip and a Nude Shoe on Betsey Johnson in her Fierce Females spotlight (check it out here), I was inspired to dig out my little collection of Betsey Johnson purses. Take a little peak into my closet. If you don’t know who Betsey Johnson is, here’s a link to her bio.

 I also have a few of her other accessories – a scarf, watch and sunglasses. I have a third pair of her sunglasses, and one of her belts with the iconic lipstick print belt buckle, but both are nowhere to be found today – the belt has likely fallen into the black hole at the bottom of my closet.

The second pair of sunglasses I had made into prescription sunglasses for when I’m not wearing my contact lenses. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my little Betsey Johnson collection. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
